Personal information

Personal information is information about you. It includes name, address and email address. You are not required to give any personal information to access our web site. In some cases we will require your name and address and additional information to be able to offer the desired service.

The same applies if we supply you with information at your request or if we respond to your questions. We will always inform you in such cases. Otherwise we will only save information that you automatically or freely provide.

If we process personal information, this is to be able to offer our services or for our business purposes.


Automatically saved information


Server log files

The page provider automatically collects and saves information in what are referred to as server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. This includes:

  • date and time of request

  • name of requested file

  • page from which the file was requested

  • access status (file sent, file not found, etc.)

  • web browser and operating system

  • complete IP address of the requesting computer

  • volume of data transferred

This information is not combined with other sources of information. The information is processed in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR based on our authorised interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.
The information is stored for a short time for technical security, in particular for the prevention of attempts to access our web servers. We cannot identify individuals using this information. The information is anonymised no later than seven days after collection by abbreviating the IP address at domain level, making it impossible to identify the specific user. The information is then processed in anonymised form for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other databases and is not accessible for third parties either in whole or in the form of an extract. The number of web page accesses is only shown as part of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report.
