Use of blog functions
In our blog, where we publish various articles on topics related to our activities, you can make public comments. Your comment will be published with your username. We recommend that you use a pseudonym instead of your clear name. User name and e-mail address are required, all other information is voluntary. When you make a comment, we continue to store your IP address. The storage is necessary for us to be able to defend ourselves against liability claims in cases of possible publication of illegal content. We need your e-mail address in order to contact you if a third party should object to your comment as unlawful.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b and f DS-GMO. Comments will not be reviewed before publication. We reserve the right to delete comments if they are objected to as unlawful by third parties.
When writing your comment you can check our e-mail service. This will inform you when other users leave a comment on the post. We use the double opt-in procedure for this service, i.e. you will receive an e-mail in which you must confirm that you are the owner of this e-mail address and wish to receive the notifications. You can unsubscribe from the notifications at any time by clicking on the link contained in the e-mail. Your personal data, including your e-mail address, the time of registration for the Service and your IP address will be stored by us until you log out of the Notice Service.
Your personal data will not be transmitted to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

you have given your express consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO,
the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f DSGVO is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data,

this is legally permissible and is necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO.

If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website.
