This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator (see Imprint).
The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal regulations. Since changes to this data protection declaration may be made due to new technologies and the constant further development of this website, we recommend that you read the data protection declaration again at regular intervals.

Collection and processing of personal data
The website operator collects, uses and passes on your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the data being collected.
Personal data is all information that is used to identify your person and which can be traced back to you – for example your name, your email address and telephone number.

We, the website operator or page provider, collect data on access to the website on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f. GDPR) and save these as „server log files“ on the website’s server. The following data is logged in this way:
Time at the time of access
Amount of data sent in bytes
Source / reference from which you came to the page
Operating system used
IP address used
The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is saved for security reasons, e.g. to clarify cases of abuse. If data have to be kept for reasons of evidence, they are excluded from deletion until the incident has been finally resolved.
