In general, the use of our website is possible without the provision of any personal data. Each access to our website and each data request generates data about this process that is temporarily stored and processed in a log file.

  • Requested page / name of target URL
  • Data volume transferred
  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Message about whether the request was successfully completed

This data is evaluated solely for statistical purposes and to improve our offer and is subsequently deleted.
