Thank you for visiting our website. In the following, we would like to inform you about how we handle your data pursuant to Art. 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).


The entity mentioned in the legal notice is the controller of the data processing described below.

Usage data for statistical purposes

When visiting our website, so-called usage data will be stored as a log on our web server for statistical purposes, helping us improve the quality of our website. This dataset consists of

  • The page from which the file was requested,
  • the file name,
  • the date and time of the retrieval,
  • the transmitted data volume,
  • the request status (file transmitted or file not found),
  • the description of the web browser used as well as the operating system,
  • the referral link indicating what site lead you to ours,
  • The IP address of the requesting computer, which will be shortened in such a way that it cannot be attributed to a specific person.

The log data mentioned are only stored anonymously.

Logging of the IP address for security reasons

Moreover, we will store the full IP address transmitted by your PC for a period of seven days; such storage is done strictly with the intended purpose of recognising, limiting and defending against attacks on our website. Upon expiration of said period, we will delete or anonymise your IP address. The legal basis is point (f) of sentence 1 of Article 6(1) GDPR.

Data security

To protect your data from unauthorised access to the greatest possible extent, we have taken technical and organisational measures. We have implemented an encryption process on our website. Data transmitted via the internet from your PC to our server and vice versa will be encrypted using TLS technology.  You can typically see this by looking at the status line of your browser, where you will find a ‘closed’ lock icon while the address bar starts with “https://”.
