Visited websites, date and time of access, amount of data sent in bytes, website of the incoming request (source/reference from which you reached the page), browser used incl. language and version, operating system used, IP address used.
Log files are created for this purpose. The data collected serves

The web servers operated or rented store log files that document access to the website with the date, time and IP address of the visitor. The log files are stored for 30 days and then deleted.

Cookies are small text files that are stored in the memory of your device with which you use the Internet, assigned to the browser you use. In order to make the use of the website more effective and user-friendly, cookies are stored on your device when you visit the website, whereby information can also flow to us (depending on the cookie). However, cookies cannot run programs or transfer malware to your device.

Our web page uses:
Transient cookies; such cookies are automatically deleted after closing the browser or by "logging out". These include, in particular, session cookies, with which a so-called session ID, with which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the common session, are stored. Based on this, your device/computer can be recognized when the web page is accessed again.
To determine how you use cookies, adjustments can be made in the respective browser settings. For example, you can refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. However, this may also impair the functionality of web pages.
Additional personal information such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address will not be collected unless you voluntarily and actively provide this information at a designated place (e.g. in the context of a newsletter registration, a request for information via a contact form, through other specific form fields or login or registration masks on the respective website, etc.). The personal data you provide will be processed exclusively for the purpose of dealing with your request or answering your inquiry. As a matter of principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties.
Data retention, data access and data security:
Other persons or companies not expressly designated in this privacy policy will not be given access to your data.

The personal data collected or disclosed by you will be protected against unauthorized access by encrypted transmission, access-protected, externally inaccessible storage and physical protection measures for the servers. The security measures are continuously revised in accordance with technological developments. Such measures include SSL encryption, regular software and hardware updates, permanent server monitoring and backup management by our service provider GmbH.

Logging of email traffic/webmail:
For the purpose of ensuring adequate information and system security as well as the detection and appropriate treatment of malware, our email servers (including rented ones) create log data about the processed email traffic.

When you send an e-mail from or to our servers, the following data is logged: E-mail and IP address as well as host name of the recipient, number of recipients, e-mail and IP address as well as host name of the sender, subject, date and time of receipt by the server, file name of any attachments, size of the message, risk classification regarding spam quality and delivery status. In the first step, e-mails are checked and spam or malware is sorted out purely automatically; only in cases of suspicion or doubt are individual e-mails subjected to closer examination by persons specifically responsible for this purpose - if necessary in consultation with the recipient.
Data security
We take all necessary and appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from loss and misuse. Your data is stored in a secure, state-of-the-art operating environment. Access to our websites is secured via HTTPS if your browser supports SSL. This means that communication between your terminal device and our servers is encrypted. If you wish to contact us or our employees by e-mail, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the transmitted information is not guaranteed. Due to their technical design, the content of e-mails can be viewed by third parties unless special technical security measures are taken. We therefore recommend that confidential information be transmitted exclusively via the contact form or by other secure means.

Your rights:
Pursuant to Art. 13 (2) lit b) DSGVO, you have the right to information, correction or deletion, restriction of processing, objection to processing and data portability with respect to the personal data concerning you.
In addition, pursuant to Art 13 (2) lit d) DSGVO, you have the right to complain to the data protection authority about the processing of your personal data by us.
In order to exercise your rights, it may also be necessary - depending on the nature and scope of your request - that you prove your identity in an appropriate form.
Information based on repeated requests for information is subject to a charge pursuant to Art. 15 (3) DSGVO. It is also pointed out that the right to receive a copy pursuant to Art. 15 (1) lit b) DSGVO, the rights and freedoms of other persons may not be affected.
This data protection declaration refers to the currently valid legal situation. We expressly reserve the right to make future changes or adjustments. Therefore, we recommend that you read this privacy policy regularly to stay informed about the use of personal data.
