2.1. General information
Within the framework of our website, we process data that you provide to us (in the context of orders, for example), logs (for security reasons, our servers log details of who makes requests) and cookies (small text files that are stored on your device and contain information to recognise you).
We have engaged Heroku as a processor to technically operate the web server used to run our website.
To prevent cookies from being set by third-party providers, you can block third-party cookies in your browser. Below you can find instructions on how to do this for the most common browsers:

2.2.1. Server logs
Purpose of the processing: When you visit our website, the web server collects usage data (known as server logs). The collection of such data is required for technical reasons to enable you to establish a connection to our server and to use the website. Such data are also used to analyse and defend against attacks.
The following server logs are collected: the IP address of the requesting device, together with the date and time of the request, which file is requested (name and URL), what volume of data is transmitted to you, notification of whether the request was successful, data to identify the browser and operating system used, and the website from which access was obtained (if access is obtained via a link).
Legal basis for the processing: Your data are processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in ensuring operation of the service and system security.
Data recipients: We have engaged the IT service centre of Rackspace, Heroku und Amazon Web Services as a processor to technically operate the web server used to run our website. The data from the server logs shall be passed on to the law enforcement authorities in the event of a hacker attack. They shall not be passed on to any other third parties.

When you visit our website, the social media plug-ins only establish a direct connection between your browser and the server of the social media service provider if you have consented to transmission of the data.

The author accepts no liability whatsoever for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author relating to damage of a tangible or intangible nature caused by the use or non-use of the information presented or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information are hereby excluded in principle except in the case of demonstrably intentional or grossly negligent behaviour on the part of the author.
All offers are non-binding and without obligation. The author expressly reserves the right to alter, supplement or erase sections of the website or the entire content without separate notice, or to cease publication temporarily or permanently.
2. References and links
In the case of direct or indirect references to third-party websites (hyperlinks) that are beyond the responsibility of the author, the author would only be liable if they had knowledge of the content and it was technically possible and reasonable for the author to prevent the use of illegal content.
The author hereby expressly declares that no illegal content was identifiable on the linked sites at the time when the links were inserted. The author has no influence over the current and future form, content or authorship of the linked/referenced sites. The author, therefore, hereby expressly distances itself from the content of all linked/referenced sites changed after the creation of the link. This declaration applies to all links and references on the author’s own website, as well as to external entries in guest books, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and all other forms of databases set up by the author that may be written in by third parties.

All brand names and trademarks mentioned on the website, including any protected by third parties, are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and to the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. It must not be concluded solely on the basis of the mere mention of trademarks that they are not protected by third-party rights.
The copyright for any published material created by the author shall remain exclusively with the author of the site. Any reproduction or use of such graphics, audio files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications shall require the express permission of the author.
