  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Date and time of access
  • Name and URL of the accessed file
  • Referrer URL (website from which the access originated)

  • Evaluating system security and stability.
  • Other administrative purposes.

No linking of this data with other data sources occurs. The collection of this data is based on Article 6(1)(f) of the DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically flawless presentation and optimization of its website, which requires the collection of server log files. In no case do we use the collected data to draw conclusions about your person. Your data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the specified purposes, and in any case, no later than 6 months.

In addition, we use cookies and analytics services. Further explanations regarding this can be found in section 11 of this privacy policy. The data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) of the DSGVO, based on your voluntarily provided consent.


b. Inquiry via Our Contact Form, Email, or Telephone

If you send us inquiries via our contact form, we will store the information you provide in the inquiry form, including your contact details. This data is stored by us for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions. If you contact us by email or telephone, your request, including any resulting personal data, will also be stored and processed by us for the purpose of handling your request. We will not disclose this data to third parties without your explicit consent. The processing of data entered into the contact form is based solely on your consent in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or for the initiation or fulfillment of contractual relationships in accordance with Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR.

Mandatory legal provisions, especially retention periods, remain unaffected.


c. Data Processing

We collect, process, and use personal data only if it is necessary for the establishment, content design, or modification of a legal relationship (so-called inventory data).

Personal data related to the use of our websites (usage data) will only be collected, processed, and used by us to the extent necessary to enable the user to use the service or for billing purposes. The master data collected by us will be deleted after the completion of the mandate or termination of the business relationship, taking into account the applicable statutory retention periods.
