on this website (hereinafter referred to as “website content”).
The legal basis of data protection can be found in the German Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Broadcast Media Act (TMG).
Access data/ Server log files
The provider (or his web space-provider if applicable) collects data on every access to the website content (so-called server log files). The access data include:
The name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, data volume transferred, report on successful access, browser type plus version, user’s operating system, referrer URL (the page visited previously), IP address and the inquiring provider.
The provider uses the protocol data only for statistical assessments for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the website content. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently review the protocol data if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use on the basis of definitive indications.
Handling personal data
Personal data is information which can be used to identify a person, in other words data that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, e-mail address or telephone number. But also data on preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites a person has viewed are considered to be personal data.
Personal data is collected, used and passed on by the provider only if this is permitted by law or the users have agreed to data collection.
When contacting the provider (for example via a contact form or e-mail) the user’s data is stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry as well as in case there are follow-up questions.
Embedding of services and content of a third party
It can be the case that within this online website content there may be content embedded from a third party such as videos on YouTube, map material from Google-Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) make use of the users’ IP addresses. This is because without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the relevant user. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We make every effort to use only such content whose relevant providers use the IP address solely to supply the content. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address e.g. for statistical purposes. Insofar as this is known to us, we make users aware of this.

This website content uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, text files that are stored on the user’s computer and that enable an analysis of the use of the website to be undertaken. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by users is generally transferred to a server operated by Google in the USA and stored there.
In the event of the activation of the IP anonymisation on this website, the user‘s IP address is however abbreviated beforehand by Google within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Treaty on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a server operated by Google in the USA and abbreviated there. The IP anonymisation is active on this website. By order of the operator of this website Google will use this information in order to evaluate the use of the website by users, to compile reports on website activity and to provide additional services associated with the use of the website and internet to the website operator.
The IP address transferred from your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. Users can prevent cookies being saved through a corresponding setting of your browser software; however this website content makes users aware that in this case they might not be able to use all the functions of this website in full. Users can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the website (including their IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available on the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Use of Facebook Social Plugins
This website content uses social plugins (“plugins”) from the facebook.com social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable from one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile or a “thumbs-up” sign) or they are identified with the add-on “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and the appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/ .
If a user of a website selects this website content, which contains such a plugin, his browser will create a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugins is transferred directly by Facebook to your browser and embedded by the latter into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the scope of the data, which Facebook collects with the assistance of this plugin and therefore informs users correspondingly of its level of awareness :
By embedding the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has selected the corresponding page of the website content. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example be pressing the “Like Button” or submitting a comment, the corresponding information is transferred from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook discovers his IP address and stores it. According to Facebook, only an anonymised IP address is stored in Germany.
The purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the rights and discontinuation options in this regard to protect the privacy of users, can be found in the data protection information provided by Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/ .
If a user is a member of Facebook and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this website content and link this to his membership data stored on Facebook, he must log out before visiting the internet presence at Facebook.
It is also possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the “Facebook Blocker ”.
+1 push-button from Google+
This website content uses the “+1” push-button from the Google Plus social network, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). The button can be identified from the “+1” symbol on a white or coloured background.
If a user selects a website of this website content, which contains such a push-button, the browser makes a direct connection to the servers from Google. The content of the “+1” push-button is transmitted directly by Google to his browser and incorporated by the latter into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the scope of the data, which Google collects with the push-button. According to Google, no personal data is collected without a click on the push-button. Only when members are logged in are such data, including the IP address, collected and processed.
The purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your rights and discontinuation options in this regard to protect your privacy can be found by users in the data protection information provided by Google on the “+1” push-button: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html and FAQ: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+1/button/.
This website content uses the push-buttons of Twitter . These push-buttons are offered through Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They can be identified from terms such as “Twitter” or “following”, linked with a stylised blue bird. With the aid of the push-buttons it is possible to share a contribution or page of this website content on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter.
If a user selects a website of this internet presence, which contains such a button, his browser will make a direct connection to the servers from Twitter. The content of the Twitter push-buttons is transferred directly by Twitter to the browser of the user. The provider therefore has no influence on the scope of the data, which Twitter collects with the aid of this plugin and informs the user correspondingly of its level of awareness. According to this, only the IP address of the user, the URL of the relevant website is transmitted when using the button, but not for purposes other than representing the button. Further information on this subject can be found in the data protection declaration made by Twitter at http://twitter.com/privacy.
Cancellation, amendments, corrections and updating
The user has the right to obtain information free of charge on request about the personal data that it is stored on him. In addition, the user has the right to the correction of incorrect data, blocking and deletion of his personal data, insofar as this is not opposed by any legal obligation to retain data.

Our internet presence uses social plugins (plugins) from various social networks such as “facebook.com”or “Twitter”. These plugins are identifiable from the relevant logos.
If you select a website of our internet presence with corresponding social plugins, your browser will make a direct connection to the servers from the relevant operator of the logo (e.g. facebook.com or twitter.com). The content of the plugin is transferred directly by the service-provider to your browser and embedded by the provider into the website. Please note that data processing by Facebook, Twitter and Yahoo takes place outside the European Union. We also have no influence on the scope of the data, which is collected by using social plugs and therefore inform you correspondingly of our level of awareness:
By embedding social plugins, the providers are informed that you have selected the corresponding website of our internet presence. If you are logged into a service such as Facebook, Twitter or Delicious, this provider can assign the visit to your account. If you interact with the plugin, e.g. activate the Facebook “Like-Button” or leave a comment, the corresponding information is transferred directly by your browser to the relevant service-provider and stored there. If you are not a member of a social network, there is still the possibility that the provider will discover your IP address and store it. You can find out the purpose and scope of the data collection through further processing and use of the data by the service-provider as well as your rights in this regard from the relevant data protection declaration:
You can disable the embedding of social plugins but also the use of software to analyse websites by using corresponding software – such as the “Ghostery” program.
When designing and operating our website content we work with various partners (for example as part of bookmarks), which offer an internet presence and internet services. These may also be accessible through the links from our internet presence. The use of these external services takes place outside the area of responsibility of nomades.
In this case the data protection provisions of these third parties apply. These partners generally have their own data protection declarations and/or their own data protection guidelines.
We naturally do not accept any responsibility or liability for these declarations and guidelines that have no connection with our website content.
