COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
Personal data is information about the personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person.
Each time a user accesses a page from the aforementioned Internet sites and each time a file is retrieved, data about this process is stored in a log file. This data (e.g. IP address, date, time and viewed pages) generally does not allow identification, and so it is not personal. There is also no personal use of this data. Only a statistical evaluation of anonymised data sets is reserved.
If registration is necessary for certain services, or if paid services are provided, we collect personal data such as first and last name, date of birth, postal address, payment method and payment data. As part of our personalised services, we may ask for additional information from you, such as your interests, phone number, gender, date of birth, etc. It is entirely up to you whether you enter this information.
We use this personal data to provide you with access to the fee-based and/or registration-required information and services of the portals as well as to provide and bill for the services. This data is processed and used exclusively for the purposes of the contract and to an extent necessary for the establishment, design, modification and fulfilment of the contractual relationship.

USE OF WEBFONTS
