We process and store the data only for the purposes given above, and only for the period necessary to achieve these purposes. In case of a longer storage period prescribed by law, we are obliged to store some data for this longer period.
By means of this data protection declaration, we would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process.
The following paragraphs describe which data is collected by using this website, and how it is used.
1. Collection and usage of data
Every access of our website and the files stored there is being logged in the server log files. The purpose of this collection is the correct delivery of the content of our website (according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO), and for internal statistics. This information will be stored no longer than six months.

- The name of the downloaded file,

- the current IP address of your device.
Additional personal data is not stored automatically.
2. Transfer of Personal Data
There will be no transfer of personal data to third parties without your consent.
3. Use of Matomo
On this website we use the web analytics service Matomo to analyze and review the use of our website. The statistics obtained allow us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.
We operate Matomo in a version that does not require cookies. Thus, no Matomo cookies are stored on your computer for the purpose of web analysis. For the analysis of website usage, your IP address and information such as timestamp, web pages visited and your language settings are collected. We store the information collected in this way on our server in Germany for a period of 365 days. Data is not passed on to third parties.
This website uses Matomo with the extension “AnonymizeIP”. This means that IP addresses are processed in a shortened form and a direct reference to a person is excluded. The IP address transmitted by your browser via Matomo will not be merged with other data collected by us. The legal basis for the use of Matomo is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
Preventing the use of Matomo is possible by removing the checkmark in the section below (“Web analytics service Matomo: Opt in or out”) and thus activating the opt-out plug-in.
In this case, an opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser, which prevents Matomo from storing usage data. If you delete your cookies, the Matomo opt-out cookie will also be deleted. The opt-out must then be reactivated when you visit our site again.
The Matomo program is an open source project. Information from the third-party provider on data protection is available at https://matomo.org/privacy/.
4. Integration of third party providers: YouTube
It may happen that YouTube videos are embedded within our website. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you call up a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the YouTube servers. This tells the YouTube server which pages you have visited. If you are logged in with your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behavior to you personally.
If you log out of your YouTube account before accessing our website, such transmission of information can be prevented.
Anyone who has deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad program will not have to assume such cookies when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.
YouTube is only loaded with your consent, i.e. no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube if you have not given your consent. Only with your consent can the videos be played, and thereby also data be transmitted to the YouTube server as to which of our Internet pages you have visited.
By activating the service, you voluntarily consent to the aforementioned data processing. This also includes your consent to data processing outside the EEA, in this case in the USA, in accordance with Art. 49 (1) a GDPR. In countries outside the EEA, the high European level of data protection cannot necessarily be guaranteed despite careful selection and commitment of the service providers. In the case of data transfer to the USA, for example, there is a risk that this data can be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes without effective legal remedies being available or all data subject rights being enforceable. You can revoke your consent at any time.
