Collection of general information when visiting our website

Type and purpose of processing

When you access our website, i.e. if you do not register or submit information, information of a general nature will be collected automatically. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your IP address and similar.


It is processed, in particular, for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring unproblematic website connection,
  • Ensuring trouble-free use of our website,
  • Evaluating system security and stability as well as
  • Optimizing our website.

We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. Information of this kind may be anonymized and statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our website and the technology upon which it is based.


Legal basis and legitimate interest:

The processing occurs according to Article 6(1f) GDPR, based on our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.



Recipients of the data may be technical service providers who work on the operation and maintenance of our website as the processor.


Storage period:

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the reason they were collected. This is generally the case, after the respective session has ended, for data that are used to make the website available.


If the data are stored in log files, they are deleted after 14 days at the latest. Under certain circumstances, the data may be stored for longer. In this case, the users' IP addresses are anonymized, making it impossible to assign an individual user to a calling client.


Mandatory or required provision:

The provision of the aforesaid personal data is neither legally nor contractually required. Without the IP address, however, the service and functionality of our website are not guaranteed. In addition, individual services may be unavailable or limited. For this reason, an objection is excluded.

      If you exercise your right to object, we shall no longer process your personal data unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
