3. Data collection on our Website


Like many other websites, we use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that your web browser automatically stores on your computer’s hard drive when you visit our website. We automatically receive certain data, such as IP address, the browser you use and can analyze your usage behavior in anonymous form when you visit our website. Cookies cannot cause any damage to your hard disk. In particular, these cannot be used to start programs and/or transmit viruses. We do not receive personal data about you through the cookies. It is not possible for us to assign the information stored in the cookies to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Cookies help us in many ways to make your visit to our website easier, more pleasant and more meaningful. For example, by analyzing the usage behavior of visitors to our website, we are able to tailor our services to your needs. If personal data is processed by individual cookies, this is justified by our legitimate interest in offering you optimal functionality of our website and in operating our website as efficiently and economically as possible, Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Log files

When you visit our website, the browser used on your device automatically sends information to the server of our website, which is temporarily stored by the server in a so-called log file. The following information is recorded without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • the IP address of the requesting computer,
  • the date and time of access,
  • the name and URL of the retrieved file,
  • the website from which access is made (referrer URL),
  • the browser used and
  • if necessary, the operating system of your computer and the name of your Internet access provider.

Log files are important sources of information for making the processes on a system traceable. They can be used, for example, for problem analysis or the reconstruction of lost data. We use the data stored with the log files in this frame:

  • to ensure the connection and use of our website,
  • to evaluate and permanently guarantee the system safety and stability,
  • to ensure the technical administration of the network infrastructure,
  • to optimize our internet offer,
  • to arrange for internal statistical surveys.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest in data processing follows from the purposes listed above. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally. The IP address of the requesting computer is only evaluated in the event of attacks on the network infrastructure and for statistical purposes.


In order for the website to be safe for you to visit we use a WordPress plugin, called Wordfence created by Defiant, to protect the website against hackers.
With normal use of our website, your ip address will not be sent or stored by Wordfence or Defiant.
It is only if you have a usage pattern typical of hackers (eg, attempt to hack our site using manipulated URLs, or attempt to access administrative pages not intended to be accessed by the public etc.) as Wordfence may send your ip address to their servers for security reasons and to improve their service. This data is stored there for 90 days and then removed. If you make repeated and continuous attempts to hack the website, you may be blacklisted and your data may be stored for a longer period than that.
