Automatically stored data
Server Log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are: • date and time of request • Name of requested file • Page from which the file was requested • Access status (transfer file, file not found, etc.) • Web browser and operating system used • Full IP address of the requesting machine • Transferred data set A combination of this data with other data sources is not done. The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. For reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attacks on our web server, this data is stored by us for a short time. We cannot draw any conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data will be anonymized by shortening the IP address at the domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a connection to the individual user. In an anonymised form, the data are processed for statistical purposes; a comparison with other data sets or a transfer to third parties, also in excerpts, does not take place. Only within the framework of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report, a representation of the number of page views takes place.
