This data is not stored or evaluated by us. In the event of a justified suspicion of misuse on the basis of concrete information, these log files can be subsequently checked.

If we collect personal data (contact form, booking forms, newsletter registrations, forums, blog entries, etc.) we will inform in each case about the purpose, scope, legality, and possible disclosure and use this only for these purposes. The entry of this data by you is voluntary.
Data transmission on the Internet does not offer complete protection of data against access by third parties. Please keep this in mind in your behavior.
