3. Purposes for which the personal data are to be processed and the legal basis for the processing:
3.1. Processing of access data (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO).
For technical reasons, we process a limited amount of data (so-called connection data) each time you access our website. This data is technically necessary to establish and carry out a connection between your terminal device and our servers. This data is processed in the main memory of the web server for the duration of the connection.
The following data or data categories are collected:
– IP address
– Source port of the calling device or a gateway (e.g., firewall or proxy) – Time stamp (date and time) of the request
– Amount of data transferred
– Message whether the retrieval was successful (by means of HTTP error code) – Message explaining why the request failed (using HTTP error code) – Referrer (website from which our main page or sub-pages were called up) – User agent (type of browser used to access our website and its version) – Width and height of the display screen
– Language settings of your browser
The IP address, timestamp, HTTP error code, referrer and user agent are automatically logged when you access our website in order to ensure the functionality and protection of our website. Furthermore, the logs serve to optimise the website. Your IP address is only processed in the logs in abbreviated form and is thus anonymised. It is not possible for us to create a user profile or a personal reference with this data.
The processing is carried out on the basis of legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. A balancing of interests was carried out and came to the conclusion that the processing operations are necessary to protect our legitimate interests and that these
outweigh your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms that require the protection of personal data.
