Collection and processing of personal data

The operator of the website collects, uses and discloses your personal data only if this is permitted under the provisions of the GDPR or if you consent to the data collection. Personal data is any information that can be used to determine your person and which can be traced back to you - for example, your name, your e-mail address or your telephone number. Important: You can, of course, visit this website without providing any personal information. However, for security reasons and to improve our online services, we store (without personal reference) your access data to this website. This access data includes, for example, the name of your Internet provider or the time you accessed the website. By making the data anonymous, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person. These so-called server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to be able to clarify cases of abuse. If data must be retained for evidentiary reasons, it is exempt from deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.
