Section 3 Scope of data collection and data storage for purely informational use
If using our website for purely informational purposes, in other words when you send us no information, we do not collect any personal data with the exception of the data that your browsers send us to allow you to visit our website. If you would like to view our website, we collect the following data we require for technical purposes to display our website to you and to guarantee stability and security: IP address, date and time of request, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), content of the request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, the data volume transferred if any, the website from which the request originates, browser, operating system and its interface, and the language and version of the browser software. Storage in log files is carried out to ensure the functionality of the website. We also use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. This data is only analysed by us to improve our offer and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you. An analysis of the data for marketing purposes is not carried out in this context.

When data are collected to operate the website, this is the case when the relevant session ends. When data are stored in log files, this is the case after one month at the latest. No further storage is possible. In this case, users’ IP addresses will be erased or distorted so that assignment to the requesting client is no longer possible.

When getting in contact with us via email or the contact form on our website, we will store your email address and, if provided voluntarily, your surname, your first name, your message and the file you send with the form in order to respond to your queries and messages.

The data will be deleted or we will restrict processing, if statutory retention periods exist, as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose of their collection. For personal data from the contact form and that which has been sent by e-mail, this is the case when the conversation with the user ends.
