The following are logged: Name of the retrieved file, date and time of the retrieval, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval and web browser. For security reasons, the IP address is also logged for a short period of time. This log is only accessed in the event of security breaches for the purpose of criminal prosecution. Personal user profiles are not generated!



You have the possibility to contact us via our website. In doing so, we collect various personal data from you using the forms, e.g. for contacting us or for specific enquiries. Mandatory fields for the provision of data that we collect in order to enable meaningful processing are limited to the most necessary: Salutation, first name, last name, telephone, e-mail address, SPAM protection and the actual message.
