Definition of personal data
Personal data is information that relates to an identified or identifiable living individual. This includes names, telephone numbers and email addresses. According to the GDPR and a ruling by the German Federal Court of Justice, a computer’s IP address also counts as personal data.

Extent of processing of personal data
The only personal data collected by this site to enable its use are IP addresses. For technical reasons, it is not possible to seek prior consent from users but legislation allows for temporary storage.

Legal basis for processing personal data
If processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests of our organization or that of a third party, in so far as the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are overridden, then Art. 6, para. 6, lit. f of the DRPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Provision of the website and creating log files
Our web server automatically stores information transmitted by your browser in its log files. This includes:
- Browser type/version
- Operating system
- Referrer URL (identifies address of previously visited site)
- Date and time of server request
- Computer’s IP address

We store IP addresses for a maximum of seven days. We do this for reasons of data security, i.e. to maintain the stability and operating security of our system. Moreover, the log data is used to statistically evaluate the traffic on our website. To maintain data protection, the IP address is anonymized before statistical evaluation.
We use the software AWStats to statistically analyze our log data. This is an open source Web analytics reporting tool installed on a server located in Germany: no data is transmitted to other servers for analysis.
