Collection of general information when you visit our website

Type and purpose of processing:

When accessing our website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise submit information, general information is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your IP address and the like.

In particular, they are processed for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a proper connection to the website
  • Ensuring smooth use of our website
  • Evaluation of system security and stability as well as optimisation of our website.

We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. This type information is statistically evaluated anonymously, if necessary, in order to optimise our website and the underlying technology.

Legal basis and legitimate interest:

The processing takes place in accordance with Art. 6 para.1 letter f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

When data is stored in logfiles, this is the case after 14 days. Storage beyond this is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of users will be anonymised, so that it is no longer possible to assign these to the client calling.

Mandatory or required provision:

The provision of the aforementioned personal data is neither required by law nor by contract. However, without the IP address, the service and functionality of our website cannot be ensured. In addition, individual services may not be available or restricted. For this reason, an objection is excluded.

When you visit the website, Google receives information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website.

If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly associated with your account.

If you do not want your data to be associated in your Google profile, you must log out of Google before activating the button.
