  • IP address

  • date and time of request

  • time zone difference to GMT

The above data are also stored in so-called logfiles on our servers. No storage of these data with other personal data of yours takes place.

For this purpose, your IP address needs to be stored for the duration of your visit to our website.

No analysis of these data for marketing purposes takes place.

The legal basis for the data processing described above is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) DS-GVO, provided that the logfiles represent processing of personal data. Our interest derives from the illustrated purposes of data collection.

The above data for the making available of our website are deleted when the respective session finishes. Collection of the above data for making our website available and their storage in logfiles is essential for the operation of our website. No objection is possible.
