II. General information on data processing

We only collect and process our users’ personal data if necessary for deploying a functioning website and making our content and services available. We regularly collect and process personal data from users only after receiving consent from the user. An exception applies in cases where prior consent cannot be practically obtained and legal regulations permit the data in question to be processed.

III. Website deployment and log file creation

Each time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.

We collect the following data:

  • Information about the browser type and version used
  • The user’s operating system
  • The user’s internet service provider
  • The IP address of the user
  • Date and time of access

Art. 6, Sec. 1, lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for temporary data storage.

The system must temporarily store the IP address in order to deliver the website to the user’s computer. To do this, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

Data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data also help us optimize the website and ensure that our information technology systems are secure. No data are evaluated for marketing purposes in this context.

For these purposes, our legitimate interest in data processing is described in Art. 6, Sec. 1, lit. f of the GDPR.

The data will be deleted once it is no longer needed to fulfill the original purpose. For the data collected for the purpose of deploying the website, these conditions are met once the session in question has ended.

Website operation absolutely requires that data be collected for the purpose of website deployment and stored in log files. The user therefore does not have a right of objection in this regard.

IV. Use of cookies

We use cookies on our site. These are small files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any damage to your device, do not contain viruses, trojans or other malware.

Cookies are used for storing information that arises in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we will immediately become aware of your identity.

On the one hand, the use of cookies makes our services more pleasant for you to use. We use so-called session cookies, for example, which recognize that you have already visited specific pages of our website. They are deleted automatically after you leave our site.

The reason for using technically necessary cookies is to make websites easier for users to use. That requires that we be able to identify your browser even after you have moved to another page.

For these purposes, our legitimate interest in processing personal data is described in Art. 6, Sec. 1, lit. f of the GDPR.

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer, which transmits them to us, which is why you as a user have full control over the use of these cookies. By changing the settings in your Internet browser, you can disable or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be automated. If you deactivate cookies for our website, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the site.

The session cookies used are automatically deleted after you leave our site.

5. Right to object and have data deleted

Users may at any time revoke their consent to processing their personal data. Users who have contacted us by email may object at any time to having their data stored. In this case, however, the conversation cannot be continued.
