4. What does this mean in detail with regard to the provision of this website with the services available therein and otherwise?

4.1 Provision of the website and creation of log files

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. The following data is collected here:

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.

Legal basis for the temporary storage of data under log files is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. Therefore, the user's IP address must be kept for the duration of the session. Log files are stored to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. These purposes represent our legitimate interest in data handling according to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the purpose of its collection. In case of collecting data for providing the website, they will be deleted when the respective session is completed.

In the case of storing the data in log files, this is the case after no more than seven days. An extended storage is possible. In this case, the users IP addresses are deleted or anonymized, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

The collection of data and the storage in log files is essential to provide and operate the website. There is consequently no right to object on the part of the user.
