1.1 Data protection
As a general rule, data protection applies to all information which relates to an identified or identifiable person and which can be indirectly or directly attributed to such a person (personal data). In particular this is information such as name, address, date of birth etc., or a combination thereof. Likewise information which in principle can be attributed to a natural person via an identifier (e.g. number, IP address or similar) is also covered by data protection law.

If the information is changed to the extent that it is no longer possible for it to be directly or indirectly attributed to a natural person, then such information is said to have been anonymised. Such data (e.g. aggregated data sets or truncated IP addresses) is no longer subject to data protection principles.

Information regarding how personal data is processed by this website can be found below. The term processing covers the complete process from collection to storage, processing and/or disclosure up until the data is erased.
