Visiting our website When you visit our website, the company commissioned by us to operate the website processes and stores technical information about the end device you are using (operating system, screen resolution and other non-personal characteristics) and the browser (version, language settings) , in particular the public IP address of the computer you are using to visit our website, including the date and time of access. The IP address is a unique numerical address under which your end device sends or retrieves data on the Internet. As a rule, we or our service provider do not know who is behind an IP address, unless you provide us with data while using our website that enables us to identify you. Furthermore, a user can be identified if legal action is taken against him (e.g. in the case of attacks against our website) and we learn of his identity as part of the investigation. As a rule, you do not have to worry that we can assign your IP address to you. Our service provider does not use the processed data for statistical purposes, so that we can understand which end devices are used with which settings for visiting our website in order to optimize them if necessary. These statistics do not contain any personal data. The legal basis for compiling the statistics is Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR.
The IP address is also used so that you can technically access and use our website and to detect and defend against attacks against our service provider or our website. Unfortunately, there are always attacks to damage the operators of websites or their users (e.g. preventing access, spying on data, spreading malware (e.g. viruses) or other unlawful purposes). Such attacks would impair the intended functionality of the data center of the company commissioned by us, the use of our website or its functionality and the security of visitors to our website. The IP address and the time of access are processed to ward off such attacks. With this processing, we pursue the legitimate interest of ensuring the functionality of our website and to ward off illegal attacks against us and the visitors of our website via our service provider. The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR.
The stored IP data is deleted (by anonymization) when it is no longer needed to detect or defend against an attack.
