active browser on your computing device sends nothing but the automatic information about
itself to the server of our website to enable the connection. This includes the browser type
and version and the date and time of access. Included in the transmitted data is also the IP
address of your device. Our server stores this IP address in a log file and deletes it
automatically after fifteen months.
We process the IP address for technical and administrative purposes when we establish a
stable connection between your device and our server. This ensures the security and
functional reliability of our website. In the event an attacker tries to harm our system, the
stored data allow us to trace the illegitimate activity.
The legal foundation for processing the IP address is Article 6 para. 1. lit. f GDPR.
We have legitimate interests in maintaining the security of our website and in providing
trouble-free website services as outlined above.
Processing the IP address of the requesting device in our log file does not allow us to draw
