2. Provision of the website and creation of log files

Scope of data processing

For every access query to our website, our server automatically collects data and information from the querying computer system.

The following data is collected in this process:

  1. the users IP address
  2. the date and time of the query

This data is compiled in log files and saved on our server. No further personal data is stored together with the log file data.

Legal basis for processing

The legal basis for temporarily processing data and log files is provided in Art. 6 (1 f) GDPR.

Purpose of processing

Data storage in log files is required to ensure the functionality of the website. Furthermore, the data enables us to optimise the website and guarantee the security of our IT systems. Data analysis for marketing-related purposes is not performed in this context.

These purposes correspond to the legitimate interests of data processing as indicated in Art. 6 (1 f) GDPR.

Duration of storage of personal data

All data stored in log files is erased within seven days. A longer period of data storage is possible. In such cases, the users IP address is erased or anonymised in such a way that renders it impossible to identify the querying client.

3. Use of cookies

This website does not use cookies.

Legal basis for processing

The legal basis for processing the users personal data, acquired as a result of the user sending an email, is provided in accordance with Art. 6 (1 f) GDPR.

Purpose of processing

The users personal data is processed only for the purpose of establishing and maintaining contact with the user. This corresponds to the legitimate interests of processing personal data.

Duration of storage of personal data

All personal data sent to us via email is deleted as soon as the respective dialogue with the user is concluded. The dialogue is deemed concluded when circumstances indicate that the issue in question has been clarified to the satisfaction of all parties.
