If you access our website, i.e., when you do not register or otherwise submit information, some general information is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider, your IP address and the like.
In particular, this information is processed for the following purposes:

We do not use your data to draw conclusions about yourself. Information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us anonymously, if necessary, in order to optimize our website and the technology behind it.
Legal basis and legitimate interest:
The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.
Recipients of the data may be technical service providers for the operation and maintenance of our website.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. This is generally the case for data used to provide the website when the respective session is closed.
If the data is stored in log files, this is done after 14 days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are anonymized making an assignment of the calling client no longer possible.
