Collection of access data and log files: Our web hosting provider collects data on the basis of each access to the server (so-called server log files). Server log files include the address and name of the web pages and files accessed, the date and time of access, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page) and, as a general rule, IP addresses and the requesting provider.
The log files are deleted when they are no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. This is usually the case after 90 days at the latest.
The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the optimal functioning of our website. The server log files may be used on the one hand for security purposes, e.g. to prevent server overload (especially in the case of abusive attacks, so-called DDoS attacks) and on the other hand to ensure the utilisation of the servers and their stability.
Contact form: You have the option of sending us a message via a contact form. If you would like to contact us in this way, please provide your name, e-mail address and your request. We use this data exclusively to answer your request.
The data is deleted when it is no longer required for this purpose. This is usually the case when the request has been conclusively clarified and there are no legal retention periods to the contrary.
The data processing is based on Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We invoke a legitimate interest in providing users with a uniform and simple way of contacting us.
E-mail sending and hosting: The web hosting services we use also include sending, receiving and storing e-mails. For these purposes, the addresses of the recipients and senders, as well as other information relating to the sending of e-mails (e.g. the providers involved) and the contents of the respective e-mails are processed. The above data may also be processed for SPAM detection purposes. Please note that e-mails on the Internet are generally not sent in encrypted form. As a rule, e-mails are encrypted during transport, but not on the servers from which they are sent and received (unless a so-called end-to-end encryption method is used). We can therefore accept no responsibility for the transmission path of e-mails between the sender and reception on our server.
If you send us an e-mail, we process the content and time of your message as well as your sender address. If the message is related to a contractual relationship, we keep this e-mail in our files. In this case, the storage period is at least three years after the end of the year in which the contractual relationship was terminated. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR.
For the processing of general inquiries, the legal basis is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We invoke a legitimate interest in being able to track and prove the communication initiated by you. This data will be deleted when it is presumably no longer required for this purpose.
