Every time you visit our website, our servers temporarily store each access in a log file. During this process, the technical data listed below is collected without any action on your part, as is generally the case for every connection to an online server:
- the IP address of the requesting computer
- the date and time of access
- the name and URL of the retrieved file
- the status code (e.g. error message)
- the browser used by you (type, version and language) and
- the transmission protocol used (e.g. HTTP/1.1)
This data is collected and processed in order to enable the use of our website (to establish a connection), guarantee the security and stability of the system on a long-term basis, allow us to optimize our Internet offering and for internal statistical purposes. Herein lies our legitimate interest in data processing.
The IP address is also evaluated together with the other data in the event of attacks on the network infrastructure or other unauthorized or improper use of the website for information and defense purposes and, where appropriate, used in criminal proceedings for identification purposes and in civil and criminal proceedings against the users concerned. Herein lies our legitimate interest in data processing.
