Definitions of the terms used (e.g. “personal data” or “processing”) can be found in Art. 4 GDPR.
We, the website operator or provider, collect data on access to the website on the basis of our legitimate interest (see art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) and store these as “server log files” on the server of the website. The following data is logged in this way:
– website visited
– time at the time of access
– amount of data sent in bytes
– source/reference from which you came to the page
– browser used
– operating system used
– IP address used
The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to clarify cases of misuse. If data has to be preserved for reasons of evidence, they are excluded from deletion until the incident has been clarified fully.

On the basis of our legitimate interest to optimize and analyze our online offering in the sense of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. GDPR, this website uses the service “Google Analytics”, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies” – text files which are stored on your end device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active
This website uses IP anonymization. The IP address of users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in exceptional circumstances is the IP address initially transmitted in full to a Google server in the USA and then shortened there. Through this shortening, the personal attribution of your IP address is omitted. The user’s IP address that is transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.
Under the terms of the data processing agreement, which we, as the website operator, have entered into with Google Inc., Google uses the information collected to compile an analysis of website usage and website activity and to provide services relating to internet usage.
The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online services by individual users, for example to create reports on website activity to improve our online services.
