This data privacy statement explains to the user of this website the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider, COLIBRI ENERGY AG, Eschersheimer Landstraße 223, 60322 Frankfurt (hereafter called “Offer”).
The legal principles of the data privacy are given in the German Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).
Access data / Server-Logfiles
The provider (or his Web space provider, as the case may be) collects data upon every access to the offer (so-called Server log files). The access data include:
Name of the retrieved web page, file, date and clock time of the call, volume of transferred data, message about successful call, browser type and version, operating system of the user, Referrer URL (the page visited earlier), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider only uses the protocol data for statistical evaluation for operating purposes, security and optimization of the offer. The provider, however, reserves the right to subsequently review the protocol data, if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete reference points.
Handling personal data
Personal data is information that can be used to determine a person, these are details that can be tracked back to a person. This includes the name, e-mail address or telephone number. But this could also include data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or the web pages viewed by someone.
The provider shall only collect, use and forward personal data, if this is legally allowed or if the users consent to the data collection.
When the provider is contacted (for example by using the contact form or by e-mail), the user’s details are stored for processing the query and also in case there are connection issues.
Comments and contributions
If users post comments in the blog or other contributions, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the sake of security of the provider, in case someone writes unlawful contents in comments and contributions (insults, prohibited political propaganda etc.). In such a case the provider himself can be prosecuted and is therefore interested in the identity of the writer.
The user can subscribe to subsequent comments. The users receives a confirmatory e-mail to check whether they are the owners of the entered e-mail address. Users can unsubscribe from the ongoing comment subscription any time. The confirmatory e-mail contains instructions in this regard.

Embedding services and contents by third parties
It is possible that third party contents could be embedded within this online offer, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other web pages. This always assumes that the providers of these contents (hereafter designated as “Third party providers”) note the IP address of the user. This is because, without the IP address, they could not have sent the contents to the browser of the concerned user. The IP address is thus required for displaying these contents. We make every effort only to use those contents, whose respective providers use the IP address merely for delivering the contents. We have, however, no influence on them in case the third party providers store the IP address, for example for statistical purposes. To the extent that it is known to us, we enlighten the user about it.
Images from stock image providers Getty Images could be embedded within this offer. The images can be recognized by a frame with the reference “Getty Images”. The display of these images assumes that Getty Images note the IP address of the users, so that the images can be delivered to the browser of the user. The IP address is thus necessary for displaying these contents. According to the current knowledge, the IP address is only used for this purpose. The provider does not, however, have any influence on it in case Getty Images stores the IP address, for example for statistical purposes. If this is known to the provider, the users are enlightened, or the images are removed.
