1.  Processing of data with and without reference to persons

1.1  Surfing on our website

As a matter of principle, you can visit our website without informing us of who you are. We will only receive information about your IP address, the name of the Internet page accessed or file retrieved and the time of the access or retrieval, the amount of data transferred, and whether the access or retrieval was successful.


The data will be used exclusively for the administration and optimisation of the Internet offer.


The IP address can be a date relating to a person, because under certain circumstances it is possible to obtain the identity of the owner of the used website by acquiring information from the respective Internet provider.


We only evaluate the IP address if our website infrastructure is attacked. In this case, we have a legitimate interest in processing the IP address within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 f) GDPR. This legitimate interest stems from the need to ward off the attack on our Internet infrastructure, to determine the origin of the attack in order to be able to prosecute the responsible person through criminal and civil law and to prevent further attacks effectively.


The IP address will be deleted if we can rule out an attack on our Internet infrastructure. This usually takes place after 7 days.

1.6  Other processing due to a legitimate interest

Where necessary, we process your data on the actual fulfilment of a contract concluded with you or a consent granted by you for the protection of legitimate interests of us or third parties, unless an assessment in individual cases shows that your legitimate rights and freedoms, that require the protection of personal data, prevail (see Art. 6 para 1 f) GDPR).
