This data protection declaration is intended to inform users of the nature, extent and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider Ralf Franz Fotodesign, Nikolausstraße 1, 97082 Würzburg (firstname.lastname@example.org) on this website (herein after referred to as “Offer”).
The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemediengesetz (TMG).
The operator of these pages takes the protection of your personal data very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and according to the legal data protection regulations as well as this data protection statement.
The use of the website is normally possible without giving personal data. If personal data (eg name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on the pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. These data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
It should be noted that data transmission on the Internet (e.g., by e-mail communication) may involve security gaps. A complete protection of the data before access by third parties is not possible.
Access data / server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browsing type / Browserversion
- operating system
- Referrer URL
- Hostname of the accessing computer
- Time of server request
These data can not be attributed to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check these data at a later date, if we are aware of any specific indications for unlawful use.
When contacting the provider (for example via a contact form or e-mail), the user’s data are stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry as well as in the event that connection questions arise.
Comments and contributions
When users post comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are saved. This occurs to the security of the offerer, if someone writes in comments and contributions illegal contents (insults, prohibited political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider itself may be prosecuted for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the author’s identity.

Integration of third-party services and content
It is possible that third party contents, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, may be included within this website. This always assumes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) perceive the IP address of the users. Without the IP address, they could not send the content to the user’s browser. The IP address is thus required for the display of these contents. We only make use of such content, the respective providers of which use the IP address for the delivery of the content only. However, if the third-party vendors have the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we will inform the users about it.
Use of Facebook Social Plugins
It is possible that this offer uses social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Facebook”).

The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When a user calls up a web page that contains such a plugin, his browser builds a direct link to the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the user according to his knowledge:
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example press the Like button or comment, the corresponding information will be sent directly to Facebook by Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is the possibility that Facebook will get his IP address and save it. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.
