Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a website analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and which allow your use of the website to be analysed. As a rule, the information produced by the cookie about your use of this website is transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. However, if the IP anonymization facility on this website is activated, your IP address is truncated in advance by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.
Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website in order to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the activities which occur on the website, and to provide other services for the website operator which are associated with the use of the website and use of the internet. The IP address which is transmitted from your browser by Google Analytics is not combined with other data held by Google.

You may prevent the saving of the cookies by using an appropriate setting on your browser software; however, we advise you that in this case you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this website. In addition, you can prevent the data relating to your use of the website that is produced by the cookie (incl. your IP address) being recorded and passed to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in which is available via the following link:

In the light of discussion about the use of analysis tools with complete IP addresses, we should like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”, and that IP addresses are therefore only processed in an abbreviated form so as to make it impossible to relate them directly to specific individuals.

Data protection declaration for the use of Facebook plugins (“Like” button)

Plugins of the social network run by Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA are incorporated into our webpages. The Facebook plugins can be recognized via the Facebook logo or the “Like” button on our webpage. You can find an overview of the Facebook plugins here: When you visit our pages a direct link is established via the plugin between your browser and the Facebook server. This provides Facebook with the information that you, as denoted by your IP address, have visited our webpage. If you click on the Facebook “Like” button while you are logged into your Facebook account you can link the content of our pages to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to assign the visit to our pages to your user account. We draw your attention to the fact that we as the provider of the pages are not made aware of the content of the data that is transmitted or of its use by Facebook. Further information about this can be found in Facebook’s data protection declaration at

If you do not wish Facebook to be able to assign the visit to our pages to your Facebook user account, please log out of your Facebook user account.


Data protection declaration for the use of Instagram

The Instagram service is incorporated into our webpages. The Instagram services are provided by Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA.
If you are logged onto Instagram you can link the content of our webpages with your Instagram profile by clicking the Instagram button. This allows Instagram to assign the visit to our pages to your user account. We have no knowledge either of the data that is collected by Instagram or of the use that is made of it.

Access data / server logs

The provider (or its webspace provider) gathers data relating to each access that is made to the service that is provided (so-called server logs). The access data includes:

the name of the webpage that is accessed, the file, the date and time of access, the amount of data that is transferred, notification of successful access, the browser type and version, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL (previously visited page), the IP address, and the requesting provider.

The provider uses the protocol data only for statistical evaluations which are undertaken only for operational and security purposes and for optimizing the service that is provided. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently check the protocol data if there are specific indications giving rise to a justified suspicion of unlawful use.

Getting in touch

When the user gets in touch with the provider (for example by using the contact form or email) the user’s details are saved for the purpose of handling the inquiry, and in case subsequent follow-up queries arise. These details are not passed on, nor are they used in other contexts.

Email subscription

You can arrange to be notified of new articles/posts. The information that is collected (name, email address) is not used for any purpose apart from that of providing you with the desired information. This facility needs to be activated by clicking a confirmation link that is sent to you (double opt-in). It can be cancelled via a link that is included in every message.

OneSignal — notification service

When you visit our page for the first time (or after deleting your consent to it), we will send you a screen message asking whether we can in future send you a message notifying you of a new edition of it.
If you provide your consent you will receive a welcome message by return. You will then receive a similar message whenever a new issue comes out. This happens at the beginning of every month. You can access the magazine directly by clicking on this message. If you ignore the message, nothing will happen. In addition, you can opt out (deregister) at any time.

This service is provided via the OneSignal app. Click here to view the provider’s data protection information. The service which is free for end users evaluates user behaviour, and it earns money by using the findings that are obtained as a result.
Therefore you shouldn’t use the push function if you have any reservations about this.


In our newsletter which comes out about 6 times a year we provide you with information about events and leisure activities in Mönchengladbach.

In order to be able to send the newsletter out, we need a valid email address from you. We also ask for your name so that we can address you appropriately. In addition, we make a note of when you registered and whether our service is (still) reaching you. This data is only used for sending out the newsletters and evaluating their use.

We use the CleverReach email service for sending out our newsletter (CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Rastede, Germany).
In order to provide the service, your data is stored by CleverReach. The CleverReach software helps us to put the messages together and to send them out, and also to understand the topics which are of interest to our customers. We do not pass any of this data on to third parties, and CleverReach is not given any right to forward your data to other people or organizations.

Your consent to the storing of the data and of your email address, as well as its use for the sending out of the newsletters, can be revoked by you at any time. This deregistration link appears in every email. Furthermore, we delete your data if we ascertain that the associated email address no longer exists.

Incorporation of third party services and content

It may be the case that this online service incorporates third party content, such as YouTube videos, maps provided by Google Maps, RSS feeds, or graphics from other websites. This always requires the providers of such content (hereinafter referred to as “third party providers”) to have access to users’ IP addresses. If they didn’t know the IP address, they couldn’t send the content to the respective user’s browser. Therefore the IP address is needed in order to be able to provide/display such content.
