E-mail addresses received in this way will not be used for any other purpose and will under no circumstances be passed on to third parties.
  • The open-source captcha software used as an anti-spam tool for the contact form and forum requires a cookie for its operation. However, it does not collect any data and can be deleted as soon as the e-mail is sent or the post is made.
  • All other functions on the site are powered by open-source software that installs no cookies and collects no data from site visitors.
