This includes information such as your real name, address, telephone number and date of birth.

Collection and processing of personal data
When you visit our website, our web servers temporarily store the connection data of the accessing computer, the pages you visit on our site, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of the browser and operating system type used and the website from which you visit us.

Use and disclosure of personal data
We use the personal data you provide exclusively for the purpose of the technical administration of the website and to respond to your requests and requirements, i.e. generally to process the contract concluded with you or to reply to your enquiry. If you have previously given us your consent or if you have not objected, insofar as this is possible under statutory provisions, or if you have a business relationship with forum Thüringer Wald e.V., we will also use this personal data for product-related surveys, invitations to events, newsletters and our own marketing purposes.
