2.1 Upon use of our website, some personal data are automatically collected about your device (computer, mobile phone, tablet etc.). The IP address currently being used by your device, date, time, browser, operating system of your device, and the pages retrieved are collected. This happens for the purpose of data security, to optimize our range and to improve our website.

The protection of our website and the optimization of our services represent a legitimate interest on our part.

3. Cookies
In order to design our services attractively and to enable the use of specific functions, we use so-called cookies. They are small text files that are stored on your device. Some of the cookies used by us are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e., after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your device and allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies). You can set your browser so that you are informed about the use of cookies and can decide in each case whether to accept them, accept cookies in certain cases, or generally exclude the acceptance of cookies. You can find further information in this regard in the help tab of your internet browser. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of the our website may be limited. By accepting our “Cookie-Banner”, you agree to the processing of your personal data by cookies. This personal data is processed on the basis of art. 6, para. 1, sentence 1, letter a) GDPR. In the following, we detail specific cookies.

Furthermore, we deploy Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics also uses cookies. The information generated by the cookies on your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. However, before this transfer, your IP address is shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transferred to the Google server in the USA and shortened there by way of an exception. On behalf of the website operator, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and in order to perform other services connected to the use of the website and the internet with respect to the website operator. The IP address transferred by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. You may prevent the cookies from being saved by way of a corresponding setting in your browser software.

Your personal data is provided on a voluntary basis. You are not legally obliged to provide us with your personal data. If you do not want to provide us with your personal data, it does not have any consequences for you other than you cannot use our services. Personal data that you provide to us via our website are only saved until the purpose for which it was processed has been served. Deviating storage periods may arise from a legitimate interest on our part (e.g., to guarantee data security and to prevent abuse). Personal data, which we must save due to statutory or contractual storage obligations, are blocked.
