The optimization of our website is very important to us. For this reason, computer-related data is stored in order to record trends and compile statistics. For security and statistical reasons, relevant access data is stored each time the website is accessed. This serves the continuous optimization of our website, but also for purposes of identification and tracking of unauthorized access attempts to our web server. For this reason, logged data is stored and evaluated in the event of unauthorised access. The evaluation is carried out by AKD employees. We have drawn the attention of all employees to the data protection regulations and have obligated them to comply with them.

User profiles are not created. No data will be passed on to third parties, even in excerpts. Depending on the access protocol used, the protocol data record contains information with the following contents:

  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Date and time of the request
  • access method/function desired by the requesting computer
  • Input values transmitted by the requesting computer (e.g. form entries)
  • Access status of the web server (file transferred, file not found, command not executed …)
  • Name of the requested file (URL) and, if applicable, network paths from which the file was requested or from which the desired function was initiated (referrer).


If you send us an e-mail, your e-mail address will only be used for correspondence with you.


Our website contains links to other websites. We have no influence on their contents and on whether their operators comply with the data protection regulations.

Use of personal data and purpose limitation

If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (for example in the context of a Work Camp/event registration, a feedback form or a general contact form) is given, the input of these data takes place voluntarily.

All personal data collected within the scope of Internet services is processed in accordance with the applicable regulations for the protection of personal data only for the purpose of this service and to safeguard our own legitimate interests with regard to the information, advice and support of our visitors and to tailor our offerings to meet their needs.

AKD will transmit personal data to institutions (authorities) entitled to receive such information if AKD is obliged to do so by law or by court order. If this is not prohibited by law, we will inform you of this transfer.

AKD uses technical and organisational security measures to protect the data you provide against accidental or deliberate manipulation or access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.


We reserve the right to change the data protection declaration in order to adapt it to changed legal situations or in the event of changes to the service or data processing. However, this only applies to declarations on data processing. Insofar as the consent of users is required or components of the data protection declaration contain provisions governing the contractual relationship with users, changes will only be made with the consent of users. Users are requested to inform themselves regularly about the content of the data protection declaration.
