You can visit our website without the need to collect personal data. Whenever you visit our website, certain anonymized data is nevertheless stored, e.g. which page or which offer was called up. However, this data is not personal and is therefore not subject to the legal regulations of the DSGVO or the BDSG.

The website operator or page provider collects data about accesses to the page and stores them as "server log files". The following data is logged in this way: Visited website, time at the time of access, amount of data sent in bytes, source/reference from which you reached the page, Browser used, Operating system used, IP address used.

The collected data is only used for statistical analysis and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to subsequently check the server log files if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. Furthermore, the storage in log files takes place in order to ensure the functionality of the website.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
