These are used exclusively for the purpose of ensuring a problem-free connection to the website and the smooth use of our website. Furthermore, the information is processed for the purpose of evaluating system security and stability or other purely administrative purposes.

The processing of your personal data is always based on our predominant legitimate interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 f) DSGVO) in optimising the functionality and stability of our website.


Recipients of this data may be technical service providers who are responsible for the operation and maintenance of our website as part of an order processing (Art. 28 DSGVO).

Storage period

Your personal data stored with us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of collection. This is the case for data that is used exclusively for the provision of our website when the session is finished.
