We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and adhere strictly to the relevant data protection laws.

Our site can generally be used without disclosure of personal data. Only technically essential personal data is collected on this website. This data will not be transmitted to third parties.

Data Collection and Recording

When you access our web pages, you send data to our Web server (server log files) via your internet browser out of technical necessity. The following data is recorded for communication between your internet browser and our website during an active connection:

+   date and time of request
+   name of requested file, file size
+   page from which file was requested
+   access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.)
+   web browser used and operating system used
+   complete IP address of requesting computer
+   data volume transferred

We store this data for a short time for technical security reasons, especially to defend against attempts to attack our Web server. This data cannot be directly assigned to specific individuals in this form. This data will not be combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently review this data, if we become aware of concrete indications of unlawful use. After no more than seven days, the data is anonymized by truncating the IP address to the domain level, so it is no longer possible to make reference to an individual user. In addition, the anonymized data is processed for statistical purposes (e.g. number of page visits as part of server statistics). There is no comparison with other databases or transfer to third parties, even in extracts.
