These are: Information on the browser and operating system used Referrer URL (the previously visited page) Host name of the accessing computer (IP address) Date and time of the server request. The temporary storage of this so-called server log data is necessary for the provision of the service for technical reasons and thereafter to ensure system security.

In order to make our Internet presence user-friendly and to adapt it optimally to your needs as well as to enable and ensure the necessary technical functions, cookies are used on our website in some areas, possibly also by third parties. "Cookies" are small text files that are stored locally on the hard drive of your terminal device (computer, smartphone, tablet) and kept ready for later retrieval. After your visit has ended and the Internet browser you are using has ended, most cookies are automatically deleted (so-called session cookies). Other cookies can remain on your end device for a longer period of time and enable your browser to be recognized the next time you visit (persistent cookies). You can determine the installation of cookies as described under "Consent and rejection of cookies" by changing the settings of your browser software. However, you may then no longer be able to use all the functions of our website. Consent and rejection of cookies The consent or rejection of cookies can be explained via the settings of your web browser. You can set your web browser so that it notifies you when cookies are set or generally rejects cookies. However, you will then no longer be able to use all the functions of our website.

Use of YouTube videos

On our website YouTube videos are integrated, which are stored on YouTube, but can be played directly on our website. To protect your privacy, you must first activate the videos on our site. If you activate or play the videos, cookies from YouTube or DoubleClick can be stored and/or read on your terminal device and data about YouTube or DoubleClick (USA, Google) can be transmitted, such as your IP address and cookie ID, the specific address of the page called up on our website, the name of the website you are visiting and the IP address of the website you are visiting. For the purposes and scope of data collection and processing by YouTube or DoubleClick, please refer to the information on Google: If you do not want YouTube or DoubleClick to receive information about you through the use of our website, you may not activate the videos. The data transfer takes place after activation of the video regardless of whether you have a user account with YouTube or Google that you are logged in to, or whether there is no user account for you. If you are logged in, this data can be directly assigned to your account. If you want to avoid this as much as possible, you must log out of the visit before activating the video.

Rights of the user: Information, correction and deletion

As a user, you will receive information free of charge about which personal data about you has been stored at your request. Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to store data (e.g. data retention, storage obligations in connection with public funding guidelines), you have the right to correct incorrect data and to block or delete your personal data. You will find the contact details for your application in the imprint.
