Each time you access one page of our website and each time a file is accessed, access data about that process is stored in a log file on the server.
This access data includes the following information:
The IP address of your computer is stored only for the time of your use of the website and is deleted or anonymized immediately after your browser is closed.
We collect the aforementioned data because this is technically necessary for you to be able to view our website and to ensure the stability and security of the website. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR (legitimate interest, specifically the needs-oriented design of the website).
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses small text files (“cookies”) on your device to allow us to analyze visitor behavior with a pseudonym. Information about your visitor behavior stored in cookies is transferred to web servers of Google in the USA and will be stored there. For this website, the function anonymize IP has been activated – therefore Google will anonymize your IP address on Google servers within the EU or the EEC prior to the transfer of data to the USA. In rare cases full IP addresses may be transferred to the USA and will then be anonymized there.
Google will use the information transferred as a Processor (GDPR Article 28) to analyze your visitor behavior, to provide web activity reports, and to provide services in relation to website use.

You may prevent the storage of cookies (including your IP address) by using appropriate settings in your browser and object to further processing by installing a browser plugin. Alternatively, you may store an opt-out cookie on your device to prevent future analysis of your visitor behavior. However, if you choose to block or delete cookies, this may affect the functionality of the website.
We take all appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data from manipulation, loss, destruction, or unauthorized access by third parties. Our systems are secured against unauthorized access. In particular, your personal data is encrypted with us. We use the coding system SSL (Secure SocketLayer).
We expressly point out that despite all the technical precautions, the Internet does not permit absolute data security. We are not liable for acts of third parties.
