Integration of services and contents of third parties
It may happen that content from third parties, such as maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are included in this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third party provider”) perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of each user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. However, we do not have any influence on this if the third parties provide the IP address e.g. save for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform users about it.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as the requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by changing the address line of the browser from “http: //” to “https: //” and the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us can not be read by third parties. The security measures are continuously adapted in line with technological developments.
To display geo-data, we use the open-source mapping tool “OpenStreetMap” (OSM). In order for the map to be displayed, your IP address will be forwarded to OpenStreetMap. You can find out how OpenStreetMap stores your data on the privacy page of OpenStreetMap and here http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Legal_FAQ.

Revocation, changes, corrections and updates
