Comments or other posts

When users post comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses will be stored. This is done for the security of the provider, in case somebody posts illegal content in comments and posts (insults, banned political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider himself may be prosecuted for the comment or other post and is therefore interested in the author's identity.

Integration of third-party services and content

It may happen that contents of third parties are integrated within this website, such as YouTube videos, maps from Google-Maps, RSS-feeds or graphics from other websites. This always assumes that the provider of such content (hereinafter referred to as "third party“) can see the IP address of the users. For without the IP address, they could not send the content to the user's browser. The IP address is therefore required for the display of these contents. We only make use of such content, whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. However, if the third-party provider stores the IP address for statistical purposes, we have no influence on this. Insofar as is known to us, we will clarify the users.
