- the webpage from which the file was requested,
- the name of the file,
- the date and time of the query,
- the amount of data transmitted,
- the access status (file transferred, file not found),
- a description of the type of web browser used,
- the IP address of the computer from which the query is made, which is shortened in such a way that no reference to a person can be identified.
The cited protocol data are only stored on an anonymised basis.
If you send us enquiries via our contact form, the data you input in the contact form, including the contact data you specify, are stored by us for the processing of your enquiry and any follow-up questions. We pass on this data to the responsible persons within our company or to the persons responsible within our group of companies. Otherwise, there will be no disclosure without your express consent.
As such, the processing of the data input in the contact form is performed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 1. a) of the GDPR). You may withdraw this consent at any time. To do so, simply send us an informal notification via e-mail. This withdrawal of consent does not affect the legal validity of the data processing performed before it was received.
The data you input in the contact form are stored until you ask us to erase them, withdraw your consent to their storage or the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies (e.g., once processing of your enquiry is completed). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially with regard to storage periods – remain unaffected.
