1. Access data and hosting

You can visit our websites without providing any personal information. Every time you access a website, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access. This access data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offering. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offering in accordance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Clause 1 Letter f of GDPR, which prevail in the context of a balancing of interests. All access data is deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit to the site.

The services for hosting and displaying the website are partly provided by our service providers as part of processing on our behalf. Unless otherwise stated in this data protection declaration, all access data and all data collected in forms provided for this purpose on this website are processed on their servers.
