8. Use of the WordPress plugin “iTheme-Security”
In terms of optimal data protection and the security of all content provided here, the WordPress installation of this site works with an additional function, a so-called plugin. The “iThemes Security” plugin takes useful and sometimes indispensable precautions to ensure the security of the website and thus the security of any personal data.

Specifically, “iThemes Security” does the following:

  1. a) Matching the user’s IP address to the list of known attackers developed by

This checks whether the user is identical to an attacker from the list in order to immediately and irrevocably exclude him from using this site. The comparison takes place locally on this server, no IP addresses are forwarded to external servers. The IP address of the user is not saved.

  1. b) Local brute force protection

Our CMS has a so-called “backend”, access to the administrative interface. This access is hidden and in principle only possible for the operator of this website. This access is monitored and logged by “iThemes Security”, for example in the case of failed logins or attempts to find out access data through frequent password testing (“brute force method”). Unlawful access attempts are stored in our database together with the IP address for 7 days and then deleted. If there are several unlawful access attempts, the IP will be stored and blocked beyond this period.

It is not to be expected that this will even apply to a user of this site. In terms of a transparent data policy, the technical possibility should be pointed out at this point.

  1. c) Network brute force protection
    “iThemes Security” also enables an analysis of brute force attacks on servers outside the EU. This feature is disabled on this site, “iThemes Security” will never send data to servers outside the EU.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using “iThemes Security” is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

“iThemes Security” protects this website from technical attacks and access attempts by third parties. This ensures the security of the entire website and the stability of our server, and any personal data processed elsewhere remains protected. The IP addresses used for the check are only used by “iThemes Security” for this purpose. Our legitimate interest in the processing of IP addresses according to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR also lies in this purpose.

IP addresses are only saved by “iThemes Security” in the case of brute force attacks. Unlawful access attempts are stored in our database together with the IP address for 7 days and then deleted. If there are several unlawful access attempts, the IP will be stored and blocked beyond this period.

When you call up this page, your IP address is checked by “iThemes Security” and is absolutely necessary for the secure operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user. However, it is possible to delete any stored IP addresses from our database at the user’s request.

We have integrated the Google fonts locally, i.e. on our web server – not on the Google servers. As a result, there is no connection to Google servers and therefore no data transmission or storage.

This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display text and fonts correctly.
