Provision of the website and creation of log files
Each time our website is called up, the web server logs access to elements (e.g. an HTML file or an image) of the same. Failed or denied accesses (e.g. due to password protection) are also noted. The server writes the following information to a log file:
- information about the browser type and the version used
- the IP address of the user (anonymised)
- date and time of access
- accessed element (website, image)
- access status/HTTP status code
- amount of data transferred
- websites from which the user's system accesses our website
- websites accessed by the user's system via our website
In the log files, the host name or IP address of the client accessing the website is anonymised. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The storage in log files takes place in order to ensure the functionality of the website. It is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website.
