Privacy

Scope


This privacy policy informs users about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider Andreas von Criegern, Alte Stationsstrasse 8, 8906 Bonstetten, Switzerland, 044 558 58 80 on this website (hereinafter referred to as "Offer").

 

The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

Access data/ Server log files


The provider (or its web space provider) collects data about each access to the offer (so-called server log files). The access data includes:

 

Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

 

The provider uses the log data only for statistical analysis for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently review the log data if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete indications.

 

Handling personal data


Personal data is information with the help of which a person can be determined, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone count as personal data.

 

Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or the users consent to the data collection.

Contacting

 

When contacting the provider (for example, via contact form or e-mail), the user's information is stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.

 

Comments and contributions


When users leave comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the security of the provider, in case someone writes illegal content in comments and posts (insults, forbidden political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider itself can be prosecuted for the comment or post and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

 

 

Comment subscriptions


Follow-up comments can be subscribed to by users. Users will receive a confirmation email to verify that they are the owner of the email address entered. Users may unsubscribe from ongoing comment subscriptions at any time. The confirmation email will include instructions on how to do so.

Newsletter


With the newsletter we inform you about us and our offers.

If you would like to receive the newsletter, we require a valid email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected. This data is only used for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

 

With the registration for the newsletter, we store your IP address and the date of registration. This storage serves solely as proof in the event that a third party misuses an email address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorized person.

 

You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, the email address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be done via a link in the newsletters themselves, in your profile area or by sending a message to the contact options above.

Integration of third-party services and content


It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") perceive the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is thus necessary for the display of this content. We endeavor to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Insofar as this is known to us, we inform the users about it.

Twitter

This offer uses website elements (https://dev.twitter.com/web/overview), such as buttons or embedded content of the service Twitter, offered by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. With the help of the website elements, it is possible, for example, to share a post or page of this offer on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter. Individual tweets in particular can be integrated into the website as further content.

 

When a user calls up a web page of this website that contains such a web page element, his browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Twitter. The content of the website element is transmitted by Twitter directly to the user's browser. The provider therefore has no influence on the scope of the data that Twitter collects with the help of the website elements and informs the users according to its state of knowledge. According to this, only the IP address of the user the URL of the respective website is transmitted when the button is referred to, but not used for any other purposes than the display of the website element.


Further information on this can be found in Twitter's privacy policy at http://twitter.com/privacy.
