When you visit a certain page, the following information is written into a log file: URL of the corresponding page, date and time of the visit, any error messages, the operating system and your browser software as well as the website from which you visit us. The last byte of your device’s IP address will be masked so that only a shortened version of it is stored in our log file. The IP address is a unique ID assigned to your device, either temporarily or permanently.
Information from the log file will be exclusively used to ensure proper functioning of our services (e.g. error analysis, system security, and protection against abuse) as well as for anonymized visitor statistics.
We delete this log data after 3 months at the latest.
The legal basis for the storage of the log data – insofar as this data represents personal data – is our legitimate interests in ensuring system security, protection against misuse, and the demand-oriented design of our website (Art. 6(1) lit. f GDPR).
