In the case of merely informative use of the website, i.e. if you do not provide us with information, we will not collect any personal data, with the exception of the data that your browser transmits to enable you to visit the website (so-called log files, legal basis Art. 6 (1) 1 f) GDPR). Log files are technically necessary for us, so that the web page called by you can be sent to your computer and displayed to you. They will be deleted within 7 days after calling the website. The log files contain the following data:

In connection with your use of the website, among other things, the IP address of the computer you are using is recorded. Under certain circumstances, the IP address may be used to identify users of the website. However, an evaluation of the IP addresses recorded in accordance with paragraph (1) does not take place by us. The evaluation of the IP addresses is done solely on a statistical basis in anonymous form.
