consequences. This only applies as long as the processing procedures below do not state otherwise.

Server log files

You can use our websites without submitting personal data. Every time you access our website, user data is
transmitted by your internet browser and stored in protocol files (server log files). This stored data includes e.g.
name of the site called up, date and time of the request, amount of data transferred and the provider making the
request. This data serves exclusively to ensure smooth operation of our website and to improve our offering. It is
not possible to assign this data to a particular person.

Cookies

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files which are saved in a user’s internet browser or by the
user’s internet browser on their computer system. When a user calls up a website, a cookie may be saved on the
user’s operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic character string which allows the browser to be
clearly identified when the website is called up again. We use cookies to make our offering more user-friendly,
effective and secure. Cookies also allow our systems to recognise your browser after a page change and to offer
you services. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. These services require
the browser to be recognised again after a page change.

Processing is carried out on the basis of § 15 (3) TMG (Telemedia Act) as well as art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR due to our
justified interest in the purposes above.

The data collected in this way is pseudonymised using technological measures. It is therefore not possible to
connect the data to your person. The data will not be stored together with other personal data pertaining to you.
You have the right to veto this processing of your personal data according to art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR by
contacting us, for reasons relating to your personal situation. Cookies will be stored on your computer. You
therefore have full control over the use of cookies. By choosing corresponding technical settings in your internet
browser, you can prevent the storage of cookies and transmission of the data they contain. Cookies which have
already been saved may be deleted at any time. We would, however, like to point out that this may prevent you
from making full use of all the functions of this website.
