You may find their privacy policy here.

Personal data we collect from all visitors

When you visit this website, the request we receive may contain information such as

  • your IP address, and information about your internet service provider (ISP).
  • information about your browser and operating system.
  • a referrer url, if you visit this website by clicking a link.
  • If you visited our website in the past, the request may contain cookies that were set in previous visits.

The information will be processed when handling the request and building the response (web page).

Some or all of this information may be stored in log files stored on the server.
These log files allow to monitor activity on the website and detect e.g. malfunction or hacking attempts.

In some cases, this information might be sent to an administrator as part of an error report.
We review these mechanisms to minimize the amount of personal information in such reports.

The data in your web request will also be exposed to the hosting provider (hosteurope), and other machines that are involved in transmitting the request.

We process data out of legitimate interests to

  • operate this website
  • monitor stability and security.
  • prevent malfunction or disruptions.
  • prevent abuse, spam or hacking attempts.
  • learn about general visitor behavior, with the goal to improve our content and presentation accordingly.

Embedded resources from other websites.

Some pages within this website may contain embedded content or resources from other websites.
When you visit these pages, your client (browser) will perform a request to the other website.

The other website will receive the same or similar information from the request as mentioned above, such as the IP address, your ISP, your operating system etc.
Typically, the other website will also learn where the content was embedded, revealing your browsing activity on to the other website.

Some of those external services may use cookies to track visitors, especially if you are logged in to their service while visiting

We attempt to only embed external resources from providers that deal with this data responsibly and according to law.
If you suspect this to be not the case, please email us using the contact details provided above.

We may provide two-click solutions for some of these embedded resources to enhance privacy.
In such a case, the request to the other website would be made once you click the plugin, not directly when visiting the page.

Google Web Fonts

Our theme uses Google Web Fonts for a pleasant appearance.
We request these directly from Google (instead of a local version), to provide a faster loading time.
This qualifies as a "legitimate interest" in the sense of Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO / GDPR.

If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts, the text will be displayed with a default native font.

When you visit a page, your browser will make requests to servers operated by Google, to download the fonts.
Google will see the IP address and other metadata that may be sent with this request.

On some of our pages we may embed Youtube videos.
These are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

If a page you visit contains an embedded Youtube video, a request will be made to servers of Youtube.
This will reveal to Youtube which pages you are visiting on

If you are logged into your Youtube account while visiting, Youtube can associate your browsing acitivty on with your Youtube account. You may prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account.

More information about privacy on Youtube can be found in the Google privacy policy,
