Privacy Policy

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and handle it confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

Server Log Files

Certain data is automatically transmitted to us. These include:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL (previously visited page)
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
  • Time of server request
  • Amount of data transferred
  • Message indicating whether the retrieval was successful

When you leave our website the IP addresses are deleted or anonymized. In the case of anonymization, the IP addresses are changed in such a way that the individual information about personal or factual circumstances can no longer be assigned to a specific or identifiable natural person, or can only be assigned to such a person with a disproportionate amount of time, cost and effort. We evaluate the data from the log files in order to improve the website again and make it more user-friendly or to correct errors more quickly - naturally only in anonymized form. In addition, we use them to control server capacities in order to be able to provide appropriate data volumes if necessary.
