Data collection (server logfiles)
When accessing our website, information is automatically sent by the browser used on your device to the server that hosts our website. This information is saved temporarily in what is referred to as a logfile. In this context, the following information will be collected without action on your part and saved until it is deleted automatically:

– Name and URL of the requested file
– Website from which access takes place (referrer URL)
– The browser being used, possibly the operating system of your computer, and the name of your access provider
These data are used exclusively for the administration and optimisation of the Internet offering.
The IP address may constitute data that can be related to a specific person, because it is possible under certain circumstances to use it in order to determine the identity of owner of the Internet connection that was used by enquiring with the respective Internet service provider.
We only evaluate the IP address in case of attacks on our Internet infrastructure. In that case, we have a legitimate interest in processing the IP address pursuant to Art. 6 (1), point f) GDPR. This legitimate interest is derived from the need to defend against the attack on our Internet infrastructure, determine the source of the attack in order to take action against the person responsible under criminal and civil law, and to effectively prevent further attacks.
Our website contains links to third-party websites for your information. Insofar as this is not readily apparent, we advise you that they constitute external links. The responsible entity has no influence whatsoever on the content and design of these pages of other providers. Therefore the assurances contained in this data privacy statement do not apply for external providers.
