2. Automatic data processing on this website
When you visit our website, the information transferred to us by your
browser is automatically stored in our server log files. This includes:
– IP-address of the accessing computer,
– time and date of the server request,
– browser type/ -version, *
– operating system used, *
– referrer URL (the website previously visited). *
*We will store this data only if your browser transmits it to us.
The server log files can be used for security purposes on the one hand, e.g. to avoid overloading the servers, and on the other hand to ensure the utilization of the servers and their stability. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is furthermore necessary to enable delivery of the website to your computer altogether.

Otherwise, the legal basis for the processing of this data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, in particular in the event that the data is transmitted to us by you by sending an e-mail. Insofar as you wish to work towards the conclusion of a contract by contacting us, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR represents an additional legal basis.
If we provide a contact form on our website, the data you enter in the input mask will be transmitted to us and stored, e.g. name and e-mail address.
