Website Use

Our offer is expressly not directed at minors.

All data received and processed within this online offer will be treated confidentially in accordance with the EU-DSGVO and will not be disclosed to third parties. 

Browsing our website without providing personal data 

The use of our website is possible without providing personal data. 

We will only receive

The data of your IP address, the name of the accessed website or accessed file and the time of access or retrieval, the domains through which you have accessed our website, the amount of data transferred and whether the access or retrieval was successful. The data is used exclusively for administration, optimization of the Internet offer and for processing your requests.

The IP address could be a person-related date, because under certain circumstances it is possible to find out the identity of the owner of the used internet access by information of the respective internet provider. 

We only evaluate the IP address in the event of attacks on our internet infrastructure. In this case, we have a legitimate interest iSv. Art. 6 para. 1 f) DSGVO in processing the IP address. This legitimate interest arises from the need to ward off the attack against the internet infrastructure, to determine the origin of the attack to be able to take criminal and civil action against the person responsible, as well as to prevent further attacks effectively.

The IP address is deleted when we can exclude that no attack on our Internet infrastructure has occurred from it. This happens regularly after seven days. 

Furthermore, we record the domains from which our web visitors come. We also evaluate this data to identify trends and compile statistics, but we delete the data afterwards.

If you voluntarily provide us with personal data (for example, name, address, or e-mail address) on our website, this data will not be passed on to third parties without your explicit consent or legal permission.
