* Visit our website
* Chat, contact other users
* Email newsletter
* Contact us
* Analysis of why which visitors come to our website and how they use them

Visit our website
When you visit our website, the company commissioned by us to operate the website processes and stores technical information about the device you are using (operating system, screen resolution and other non-personal features) and the browser (version, language settings), in particular the Public IP address of the computer with which you visit our website, including the date and time of access. The IP address is a unique numerical address at which your end device sends or retrieves data on the Internet. We or our service provider generally do not know who is hiding behind an IP address, unless you provide us with data that enables us to identify you while you are using our website. Furthermore, a user can be identified if legal steps are taken against them (e.g. in the event of attacks against our website) and we become aware of their identity as part of the investigation process. As a rule, you do not have to worry that we can assign your IP address to you.
Our service provider does not use the processed data for statistical purposes so that we can understand which end devices are used with which settings for visiting our website in order to optimize them if necessary. These statistics do not contain any personal data. The legal basis for compiling the statistics is Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR.
The IP address will continue to be used so that you can technically access and use our website and to detect and prevent attacks against our service provider or our website. Unfortunately, there are always attacks to harm the operators of websites or their users (e.g. preventing access, spying on data, spreading malware (e.g. viruses) or other unlawful purposes). Such attacks would impair the proper functioning of the data center of the company commissioned by us, the use of our website or its functionality and the security of the visitors to our website. The processing of the IP address including the time of access is carried out to ward off such attacks. With this processing, we pursue the legitimate interest of our service provider to ensure the functionality of our website and to ward off illegal attacks against us and visitors to our website. The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR.
The stored IP data is deleted (by anonymization) when it is no longer needed to detect or avert an attack.
If you send us a message via one of the contact options offered, we will use the data you have given us to process your request.
