General information collected when you visit our website – Nature and purpose of processing:

When you access our website, i.e. if you do not register or submit information in some other form, 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. 

These are processed for the following purposes, in particular:

  • Ensuring that the connection with our website is established without any problems,

  • Ensuring the trouble-free use of our website,

  • Assessing system security and stability, as well as

  • Other administrative purposes.

We do not use your data to make any deductions about you as an individual. Information of this kind is analysed statistically by us, when necessary, in order to optimise our website and the underlying technology.

Legal basis:

Processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.


The recipients of the data may be technical service providers acting as commissioned processors in connection with the operation and maintenance of our website.

Storage period:

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of data used to make the website available, this generally corresponds to the end of the respective session.

Prescribed or required provision of data:
