Unfortunately it is in the nature of things that these explanations sound very technical, but we have tried to describe the most important things as simple and clear as possible.

in files (web server log files).
Web server log files are usually stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but we cannot rule out the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of unlawful conduct.

TLS Encryption With https
We use https to transmit data securely on the Internet (data protection through technical design article 25 paragraph 1 DSGVO). Through the use of TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognize the use of this data transmission security by the small lock symbol at the top left of the browser and the use of the https scheme (instead of http) as part of our Internet address.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific information. We do not use tracking cookies!
A cookie is a short data packet that is exchanged between a web browser and a web server, but is completely meaningless to the web browser and only becomes important for the web application, e.g. an online shop, such as the content of a virtual shopping cart.
There are two types of cookies: first-party cookies are created by our site, third-party cookies are created by other sites (such as Google Analytics). Our website does not use third party cookies!
