What data is stored?

What data is stored? Every access to our homepage and every retrieval of a file stored on the homepage is logged. The storage serves internal system-related and statistical purposes. The following are logged: page from which the file was requested (so-called referrer URL), name of the file accessed, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, web browser and requesting domain. In addition, the IP addresses of the requesting computers are logged.

Further personal data is only recorded if you provide this information voluntarily, for example as part of an inquiry or registration, or send us an email.

Some of the websites use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are transmitted to your computer from the Internet together with the data actually requested. This data is stored there and made available for later retrieval.

Purposes of processing personal data

If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (email addresses, name, addresses) is given, the input of this data takes place on an expressly voluntary basis. This data is processed and stored exclusively for the purposes stated at the point of entry. Here, too, your data will be treated confidentially and will not be passed on to third parties.

We use programs from the following providers to improve the user experience or optimize the design of the content:

Openstreet Map

We use OpenStreetMap for the maps on our website. This map service is provided by the OpenStreetMap Foundation, St John's Innovation Centre, Cowley Road, Cambridge, CB4 0WS, United Kingdom.
Every time a user accesses a corresponding page, data is retrieved from OSM caching servers and displayed in the browser. At the same time, data is also sent to these servers and temporarily processed in a log file. In detail, the following data is stored for each access/retrieval:

  • Date and time of retrieval (time stamp) and the IP address of the accessing device or server,
  • Request details and target address (protocol version, HTTP method, referrer, user agent string),
  • Name of the retrieved file and amount of data transferred (requested URL including query string, size in bytes) and
  • Message whether the retrieval was successful (HTTP status code).

This log data is stored for a certain period of time. They are used for statistical evaluation, error analysis and defense against attacks. The processing of the IP address is necessary to enable communication on the Internet. To do this, data must get from the server on which it is stored to the connected computer that wants to access the content.

The current data protection declaration of OpenStreetMap:


Lübecker Hafen-Gesellschaft mbH uses YouTube, which is privacy-friendly because the videos are only loaded after the user has given their consent. When using YouTube, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of YouTube by visitors. Further information about data processing by Google can be found in the Google data protection information. There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the data protection center.

You can find detailed instructions on how to manage your own data in connection with Google products here.


This internet site is hosted on servers of the company IONOS SE, Elgendorfer Straße 57, 56410 Montabaur. The administration is carried out as a "managed server" by IONOS SE. This also applies to the storage and processing of log files. The above-mentioned storage of the IP addresses is initially complete for 7 days. After this period, the IP addresses in the log files are anonymised. If 1&1 offers configuration options for data-saving use, we use them. Further details can be found in the data protection declaration of 1&1. data protection declaration of 1&1.


In order to be able to evaluate and, if necessary, improve the use of the Internet offers, statistics are collected using the internally installed program package Matomo (formerly Piwik). In contrast to other evaluation services, all data remains exclusively on the IONOS servers rented by Lübecker Hafen-Gesellschaft mbH and is not passed on to external service providers.

The logged IP addresses are anonymized for the evaluation. Matomo (formerly Piwik) calculates an anonymous user ID from the collected data and then sets a cookie on the calling computer.

Only if you have agreed to the use of Matomo will the following data be saved when you visit one of our websites:

  • IP address (anonymized)
  • User ID (pseudonymized)
  • Date and time of the request
  • Page title of the opened web page
  • URL of the opened web page
  • Previous URL (Referrer URL)
  • screen resolution
  • User's local time
  • Clicks on download links
  • Clicks on external links
  • Duration of the request (time from server to user)
  • Geo data:
    • country
    • region
    • City
    • Longitude and latitude (estimated)
  • Browser language (Accept-Language header)
  • Browser identifier (User-Agent header)

The data is stored for a period of 180 days.

Protection of personal data
