We comply with these provisions. Personal data is treated as strictly confidential and is neither sold nor passed on to third parties. In close cooperation with our hosting providers, we endeavor to protect the databases as well as possible against unauthorized access, loss, misuse or falsification.

Nature, scope and purpose of the processing of personal data

When you visit our website for information purposes, our servers located in Germany only store the personal data that your browser transmits to our servers in a log file on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

The following data is collected when you visit our website and stored by us until it is automatically deleted:

  • the date and time of access;
  • the name and URL of the retrieved file;
  • the website from which access is made;
  • the operating system of your computer and the browser you are using;
  • the IP address;
  • the name of your Internet service provider.

The collection and processing of this data regarding the date, time, name and URL of the accessed file, website from which the access takes place, is carried out for the purpose of enabling the use of the website (connection establishment), correctly delivering the contents of our website and permanently ensuring system security and stability. Data processing relating to information on the operating system and browser used and the name of the Internet service provider serves to enable the technical administration of the network infrastructure and the optimization of our website, as well as for internal statistical purposes. The IP address is only evaluated in the event of attacks on our network infrastructure and for statistical purposes. The processing of this data is based on our legitimate interest in protecting our website from unauthorized access. At the same time, we want to constantly improve our offer for our customers and are therefore dependent on statistical evaluations.

When you visit our website, your data will be stored for a maximum of 7 days to detect and defend against attacks.

If the storage purpose no longer applies or if a prescribed storage period expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
