In individual cases, the processing of your data may be necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at your request, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b GDPR.

IV. Data processing on the website

  1. Log files

1.1 Scope of the data processing
Whenever you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system with which you, as data subject, access our website. These data are stored and processed on our server in a protocol file (so-called log files). The following personal data is collected:

Among other things, log files store the IP address, the browser used, the time and date and the system used by a visitor to the site. We only store anonymous IP addresses of visitors to the website. At web server level, this is done by storing an IP address 123.123.123.XXX in the log file instead of the actual IP address of the visitor, e.g. 123.123.123.123, where XXX is a random value between 1 and 254. It is no longer possible to establish a personal reference.

1.2 Purpose of the data processing
The IP address is a string of numbers that uniquely identifies your computer system at the time you use our website. The IP address is used to receive and send data packets and enables a user to access a website. The temporary storage of the IP address on our server is necessary to transmit the page contents to the user’s computer system after calling up our website, so that the user can perceive the contents.

The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website and to be able to detect possible transmission errors. In addition, this data serves us to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

1.3 Legal basis of the processing
The processing is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

1.4 Legitimate interests
We have a legitimate interest in processing the above-mentioned personal data for the above-mentioned purposes to ensure that information about our services is always available online.

1.5 Recipients or categories of recipients
Your personal information is shared with our IT department and with our contractors who are hired to host and provide the IT resources to operate the website.

1.6 Transfer to third countries
We do not intend to transfer your personal data abroad.

1.7 Duration of storage
Your personal data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their collection. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session is ended. The user’s IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session to enable the usage of the website.

In the event that your data is stored in the log file, the data collected therein will be stored indefinitely.

1.8 Possibility of objection and removal
As a data subject, you have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you that is carried out pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. e or f GDPR (Art. 21 (1) GDPR). In this case we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms as a data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend and defend legal claims.

The processing of personal data for the provision of the website and for the creation of the log file is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. The user can therefore not object to this type of processing.

1.9 Duty to provide data (Art. 13 (2) lit. e GDPR)
