Among the data collected are: website name, date, amount of data, web browser including version, operating system, the domain name of your internet provider, the referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our website), and the IP address.
Without these data, it is technically not possible to deliver and display the content of the website, making the collection of these data a mandatory technical requirement.

In addition, the IP address of the device from which you are registering for the newsletter, as well as the date on which you registered are saved. These data serve to protect your privacy in case the service was misused and e-mail address was not submitted by the owner of the respective e-mail account. To further ensure that an e-mail address is not submitted illegally by a third party, we make use of the double opt-in procedure. In the course of this procedure, the newsletter registration, the sending of the confirmation e-mail and the reception of the registration confirmation are stored.
At any time, you have the option to revoke your consent to the storage of your data and your e-mail address and the reception of the newsletter. For this purpose, each newsletter e-mail includes a revocation link.
