Collection of General Information when visiting our Website
Type and Purpose of Data Processing:
When you access our website, i.e., if you do not register or otherwise transmit information, information of a general nature 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.
They are particularly processed for the following purposes:
- Ensuring a smooth connection setup of the website,
- Ensuring smooth use of our website,
- Evaluation of system security and stability, as well as
- Optimization of our website.
We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us if necessary anonymously, to optimize our internet presence and the technology behind it.
Legal Basis and Legitimate Interest:
The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.
Recipients of the data may be technical service providers, who work as processors for the operation and maintenance of our website.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for the purpose of the collection. This is generally the case for the data used to provide the website when the respective session has ended.
In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after no later than 14 days. An extended storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are anonymized, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
Provision Required or Mandatory:
The provision of the aforementioned personal data is neither legally nor contractually required. Without the IP address, however, the service and functionality of our website cannot be guaranteed. Furthermore, individual services and services may not be available or may be limited. Therefore, an objection is excluded.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
