You can count on it:
The processing of your personal data, such as your name, your address or your e-mail address is always in accordance with the Data Protection Regulation and in compliance with national data protection provisions. We collect and use your personal data only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. If the processing of data is not permitted by law, the collection and use of your personal data is only based on your consent. In addition, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the highest possible level of protection for your data.
Subject of protection
The object of protection is personal data, i.e., individual details about the personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes, above all, information that allows conclusions to be drawn about your identity (e.g. information such as name, postal address, e-mail address, IP address or telephone number).

The data controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation is:
Holzmindener Str. 11

You can contact our data protection officer directly at any time with all questions and suggestions regarding data protection.
Collection of general data
Our website collects various general data and information with each call. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to deliver the contents of our website correctly and to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website. The data and information collected anonymously are therefore evaluated by the company on the one hand, statistically and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our company. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
The processing of the data is based on Art. 6 I lit. b) DSGVO. This provision allows the processing of personal data for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
Registration on our website
You have the possibility to register on this website by providing personal data. The registration serves us to offer you services that, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. The personal data that is transmitted to us in this process is determined by the respective input mask that is used for registration. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from our database. The registration data you enter is collected and stored by us exclusively for internal use and for our own purposes.
By registering, your IP address, the date and time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data is necessary because only in this way can the misuse of our services be prevented, and this data allows, if necessary, to clarify committed crimes. In principle, this data is not passed on to third parties, unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.
The processing of the data is based on Art. 6 I lit. b) DSGVO.
Data entered in the context of the use of the offer
Our various offers provide you with different options for posting content, such as photos, interests, group memberships or other messages with a personal reference. You can use the "Privacy" menu item to decide which groups of people can see this content.
When registering, you will be asked to provide certain minimum information, without which the registration cannot be completed. These mandatory data are:
Access is via the e-mail address you provide and the password you select; we therefore call this data "access data".
When the network is accessed, usage data is transmitted by the respective Internet browser and stored in log files, so-called server log files. These data are:
In the so-called login records, the following usage data is stored each time you log in to the network:
We evaluate this data in anonymized form in order to
By evaluating these log files, we can see at what times the network is used particularly intensively and what volume of data is generated on the website. In addition, this allows us to identify and correct potential errors such as broken links.
When you register or "log in" using your access data, the date of registration, the time and the respective access data are also stored.
In general, about the comments you posted:
Comments on photos, on bulletin boards and in the bush radio are not automatically deleted when you end the friendship with a particular user or it is terminated by him. So if you have posted a comment, you will not be able to access it after the friendship with the profile owner has ended. If you don't like that, it's best to ask the profile owner to simply delete your comment. Nevertheless, it can happen that you receive an e-mail notification with the content that a photo or post was commented on, to which you already had something to say. However, since this photo or post entry is only visible to friends - and the friendship has ended - you can no longer view anything that continues to happen with the photo or post entry.
Contact possibility via the website
Due to legal regulations, our website contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to us as well as an immediate communication with us. If you contact us, the personal data you provide will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting you. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. The processing of the data is based on Art. 6 I lit. b) DSGVO.
We use so-called cookies on our website. These are small text files that are stored on your terminal device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal device and enable us or our partner companies to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies). The information contained in cookies serves to facilitate navigation and avoid, for example, that you have to re-enter all registration data each time you use our website. Cookies are also used to tailor our content to your personal interests. You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and can decide individually about their acceptance or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general. However, if you do not accept cookies, the functionality of our website may be limited.
Notifications and newsletters
You also have the option to subscribe to various newsletters on our pages. The newsletter will only be sent if you have given your consent. In this case, we will send a confirmation e-mail to your e-mail address, which you provided to us during registration, using the double opt-in method. This confirmation email serves to verify whether the addressee has actually authorized the receipt of the newsletter. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 I lit. a) DSGVO.
When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration, as assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP), as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later point in time and therefore serves the legal protection of the controller. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 I lit. f) DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in being able to prove your registration for the newsletter.
The personal data collected in the context of a registration for the newsletter will be used exclusively for sending our newsletter. No personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will be passed on to third parties. You can cancel your subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that you have given us for the newsletter dispatch can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking your consent, you will find a corresponding link in each newsletter, which you must click on. Furthermore, it is possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on our website or to inform us of this in another way.
YouTube with enhanced privacy
This website embeds videos from YouTube. The operator of the pages is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use YouTube in extended privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the disclosure of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. Thus, YouTube - regardless of whether you watch a video - establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network.
As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, after starting a video, YouTube may store various cookies on your end device or use comparable recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience, and prevent fraud attempts.
If necessary, further data processing operations may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no control.
YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.
The controller has integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programs, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.
The operating company of YouTube is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective YouTube component to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. Within the scope of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google receive knowledge of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject is visiting when a subpage containing a YouTube video is called up. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged into YouTube at the same time as calling up our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her YouTube account before accessing our website.
Vimeo without tracking (Do-Not-Track)
This website uses plugins of the video portal Vimeo. The provider is Vimeo Inc, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with Vimeo videos, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established. This tells the Vimeo server which of our pages you have visited. In addition, Vimeo obtains your IP address. However, we have set Vimeo so that Vimeo will not track your user activity and will not set cookies.
The use of Vimeo is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.
The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission and, according to Vimeo, on "legitimate business interests". Details can be found here: https://vimeo.com/privacy.
Google Web Fonts (local hosting)
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. The Google Fonts are installed locally. A connection to Google servers does not take place.
Font Awesome (local hosting)
This site uses Font Awesome for consistent font rendering. Font Awesome is installed locally. A connection to servers of Fonticons, Inc. does not take place.
Our pages use DoubleClick, an online marketing tool of Google Inc.
DoubleClick transfers data to the DoubleClick server with each impression as well as with clicks or other activities. Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request from your browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick sets a cookie on your terminal device (see above for the term "cookies"). The purpose of the cookie is the optimization and display of advertising. Among other things, the cookie is used to serve and display user-relevant advertising and to create reports on advertising campaigns or to improve them. Furthermore, the cookie is used to avoid multiple displays of the same advertisement.
DoubleClick uses a cookie ID, which is required to handle the technical process. The cookie ID is required, for example, to display an advertisement in a browser. Furthermore, the cookie ID enables DoubleClick to record conversions. Conversions are recorded, for example, when a DoubleClick advertisement has previously been displayed to a user and the user subsequently makes a purchase on the advertiser's website using the same Internet browser. A DoubleClick cookie does not contain any personal data. However, a DoubleClick cookie may contain additional campaign identifiers. A campaign identifier serves to identify the campaigns with which the user has already been in contact.
Each time you visit our site, the internet browser on your end device is automatically triggered by the respective DoubleClick component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of data that Google also uses to generate commission statements. Among other things, Google can track that you have clicked on certain links on our website.
You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used. In addition, cookies already set by Google can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs.
