3. The purpose of use of personal data and the legal basis
a. Web server logs including the IP address
No processing of personal data is required for most of our services. This means you can visit our website without informing us who you are.
We only collect and process access data which your internet browser automatically sends to us for technical reasons in order to make the website available. Depending on the type of access log used, the log data set contains general information with the following content: your session data (date and time of request, usage behavior, duration of visit, which links were clicked on, the time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), the amount of data transmitted etc.), the website you were previously on, your IP address, your browser version, your operating system, the domain name and the address of your internet provider (e.g. AOL) and your website-specific settings. If our website cookies are used, the web server also stores this information. This also applies if you visit our website using a mobile device, for example, with a mobile phone browser.
This data does not generally enable you to be traced directly and is used to improve our website. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is a legitimate interest in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 let. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in providing you with a website optimized for your browser and enabling communication between our server and your device.
In the event of misuse of the system, we can also process and use the information logged by the web server in cooperation with your internet provider and/or local authorities to determine who is responsible for such misuse. The legal basis for this is also a legitimate interest, art. 6 para. 1 let. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the protection of the integrity of our system and our users.
