Personal data

Personal data is data that can be related to you personally, e.g. your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address. The following basic distinctions must be made: There is data that is already generated due to technical processes when using the Internet and is automatically transmitted to us, and data that you enter independently on our platform in order to be able to make full use of all the functions of our services.

Automated data collection

If you only visit our Internet website for information purposes, i.e. if you do not register to use our services or otherwise provide us with information, your Internet browser or mobile device automatically transmits non-personal data (e.g. date and time of the request, content of the request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, amount of data transmitted in each case) on a regular basis for technical reasons, which we store in a log file. These data are stored and evaluated exclusively for technical reasons to ensure trouble-free operation of the website for the improvement of our offer, but do not allow us to draw any conclusions about your person.
