Server log files

Automated acquisition of data
Whenever our website is called up, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is automatically recorded and stored:

  • information about the browser type and version used
  • customer domain
  • size of the response body
  • browser used and the user's operating system
  • IP address of the user

We process the data mentioned above for the following purposes:

  • ensure a smooth connection of the website
  • guarantee a comfortable use of our website
  • deliver the contents of our website correctly
  • evaluate the system security and server stability
  • provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack.

To detect attacks, we store non-anonymized IP addresses for a maximum of seven days after which they are irrevocably anonymized. We process the above-mentioned data in order to ensure a smooth connection of the website and the comfortable use of our website. Furthermore, the processing of the data enables us to evaluate the system stability and security.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We will not in any way use this general data to draw conclusions to a specific person.

The user's data will be deleted, provided that the user's inquiry has been conclusively answered and no legal storage obligations, e.g. in the case of subsequent contract processing, stand in the way.

Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that the Internet browser used by the user places and stores on the end device. These cookies process certain user information to an individual extent, such as browser and location data and IP address values.
The use of these cookies allows the provider to make its website more user-friendly, effective and secure. For example, "session" cookies allow the storage of the user's login data or language settings so that these do not have to be entered or set repeatedly.
The use of these cookies serves the legitimate interest of the provider in improving the functionality of the website and is based on the legal basis of art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. "Session" cookies are deleted when the user closes its browser.
If necessary, cookies from third parties are also used on the provider's website. These third parties are partner companies with whom the provider cooperates for the purpose of advertising, analysis or the functionality of the website. Should this be the case, the purposes and legal basis of the processing operations in question are set out in the following.

Google Maps
On our website, we use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). Google Maps is a web service for the display of interactive (land) maps to visually present geographical information. By using this service, our location will be displayed to you, providing directions to our company, for example.
Already when you open those sub-pages in which the map of Google Maps is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers and stored there. This may also result in a transmission to servers of Google LLC. in the USA. This will happen regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether a user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your information is directly associated with your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as user profiles and evaluates them. In accordance with art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, the collection, storage and evaluation are based on the legitimate interest of Google in the insertion of personalized advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of Google websites. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles and you must contact Google to exercise this right.
If you do not agree with the future transmission of your data to Google in the context of the use of Google Maps, there is also the possibility to completely deactivate the web service of Google Maps by switching off the application JavaScript in your browser. Google Maps and thus the map display on this website cannot be used.
You can view Google's terms of use at The additional terms of use for Google Maps are available at
Detailed information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found on the Google website ("Google Privacy Policy"):

We reserve the right to adapt this data privacy policy so that it always meets the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data privacy policy, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data privacy policy will then apply the next time you visit our website.
