- Online identifiers (e.g. device identifiers, session IDs).
The processing of this access data is necessary to enable the visit of the website and to guarantee the permanent functionality and security of our systems. Furthermore, the access data is temporarily stored in internal log files for the purposes described above, for compiling statistical data on the use of our website, for further developing our website with regard to the usage habits of our visitors (e.g. if the proportion of mobile devices with which the pages are accessed increases) and for general administrative maintenance of our website. Legal basis of this is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR.
The information stored in the log files does not enable any direct conclusions to be drawn about your person – in particular, we only store the IP addresses in abbreviated, anonymized form. The log files are stored for 30 days and archived following their subsequent anonymization.
