 +====== Privacy Policy ======
  
 +Personal data (usually referred to just as "​data"​ below) will only be processed by us to the extent necessary and for the purpose of providing a functional and user-friendly website, including its contents, and the services offered there.
 +
 +Per Art. 4 No. 1 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, i.e. the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter referred to as the "​GDPR"​),​ "​processing"​ refers to any operation or set of operations such as collection, recording, organization,​ structuring,​ storage, adaptation, alteration, retrieval, consultation,​ use, disclosure by transmission,​ dissemination,​ or otherwise making available, alignment, or combination,​ restriction,​ erasure, or destruction performed on personal data, whether by automated means or not.
 +
 +The following privacy policy is intended to inform you in particular about the type, scope, purpose, duration, and legal basis for the processing of such data either under our own control or in conjunction with others. We also inform you below about the third-party components we use to optimize our website and improve the user experience which may result in said third parties also processing data they collect and control.
 +
 +Our privacy policy is structured as follows:
 +
 +  * I. Information about us as controllers of your data
 +  * II. The rights of users and data subjects
 +  * III. Information about the data processing
 +
 +
 +===== I. Information about us as controllers of your data =====
 +
 +The party responsible for this website (the "​controller"​) for purposes of data protection law is:
 +
 +Christian Rehn
 +Erfurter Straße 4
 +76646 Bruchsal
 +Germany
 +
 +
 +===== II. The rights of users and data subjects =====
 +
 +With regard to the data processing to be described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right
 +
 +  * to confirmation of whether data concerning them is being processed, information about the data being processed, further information about the nature of the data processing, and copies of the data (cf. also Art. 15 GDPR);
 +  * to correct or complete incorrect or incomplete data (cf. also Art. 16 GDPR);
 +  * to the immediate deletion of data concerning them (cf. also Art. 17 DSGVO), or, alternatively,​ if further processing is necessary as stipulated in Art. 17 Para. 3 GDPR, to restrict said processing per Art. 18 GDPR;
 +  * to receive copies of the data concerning them and/or provided by them and to have the same transmitted to other providers/​controllers (cf. also Art. 20 GDPR);
 +  * to file complaints with the supervisory authority if they believe that data concerning them is being processed by the controller in breach of data protection provisions (see also Art. 77 GDPR).
 +
 +In addition, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom it discloses data of any such corrections,​ deletions, or restrictions placed on processing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR. However, this obligation does not apply if such notification is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. Nevertheless,​ users have a right to information about these recipients.
 +
 +**Likewise, under Art. 21 GDPR, users and data subjects have the right to object to the controller'​s future processing of their data pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In particular, an objection to data processing for the purpose of direct advertising is permissible.**
 +
 +
 +===== III. Information about the data processing =====
 +
 +Your data processed when using our website will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for its storage ceases to apply, provided the deletion of the same is not in breach of any statutory storage obligations or unless otherwise stipulated below.
 +
 +==== Server data ====
 +
 +For technical reasons, the following data sent by your internet browser to us or to our server provider will be collected, especially to ensure a secure and stable website: These server log files record the type and version of your browser, operating system, the website from which you came (referrer URL), the webpages on our site visited, the date and time of your visit, as well as the IP address from which you visited our site.
 +
 +The data thus collected will be temporarily stored, but not in association with any other of your data.
 +
 +The basis for this storage is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement,​ stability, functionality,​ and security of our website.
 +
 +The data won't be deleted but it will only be stored anonymized by truncating the IP address.
 +
 +==== Cookies ====
 +
 +=== a) Session cookies ===
 +
 +We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies stored on your computer by your browser. These cookies process certain specific information about you, such as your browser, location data, or IP address.  ​
 +
 +This processing makes our website more user-friendly,​ efficient, and secure, allowing us, for example, to keep you logged in.
 +
 +The legal basis for such processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, insofar as these cookies are used to collect data to initiate or process contractual relationships.
 +
 +If the processing does not serve to initiate or process a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
 +
 +When you close your browser, these session cookies are deleted.
 +
 +=== b) Disabling cookies ===
 +
 +You can refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings on your browser. Likewise, you can use the browser to delete cookies that have already been stored. However, the steps and measures required vary, depending on the browser you use. If you have any questions, please use the help function or consult the documentation for your browser or contact its maker for support. Browser settings cannot prevent so-called flash cookies from being set. Instead, you will need to change the setting of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the Flash player you are using. If you have any questions, please use the help function or consult the documentation for your Flash player or contact its maker for support.

 +
 +The IP address is processed because we might have a legitimate interest in taking or supporting further action if your post infringes the rights of third parties and/or is otherwise unlawful.

 +In this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in any legal defense we may have to mount.
