Definitions of the terms used (“personal data” or “processing”) can be found in Art. 4 of GDPR.

The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The storage of the data is done for security reasons, for example to clarify cases of abuse. If data must be revoked for reasons of proof, they are excluded from the deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.

Personal information means all information that is used to identify a natural person and which can be traced back to you.
You can also visit this website without giving any personal information. To improve our online offer, however, we (without personal reference) store your access data on this website. These access data include for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet service provider. Due to the anonymization of the data, conclusions about natural person are not possible.

This is done on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1f of GDPR and serves the security of us as a website operator: For example: if your comment violates applicable law, we can be prosecuted, which is why we have an interest in the identity of the comment or contribution author.
Due to our legitimate interests, this website uses for the optimization and analysis of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1f of GDPR the “Google Analytics” service offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies” – text files that are stored on your device.

The IP address of the users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases, the IP address is initially transferred unabridged to the United States to a Google server and shortened there. This reduction eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. The user’s IP address provided by the browser will not be combined with other data stored by Google.
Under the terms of the Order Data Agreement, which we have created as a website operator with Google Inc., the information we collect will be used to compile an evaluation of website activity and to provide services related to internet usage.
