2.1 Accessing and use of the website
Whenever the website and its subpages are accessed, usage data are transmitted by the respective internet browser and stored in log files (server log files). This process is carried out anonymously. In the case of anonymization, the IP addresses are changed in such a way that they can no longer be assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person or can only be assigned with a disproportionate large amount of time, costs and effort. The data records stored in the process contain the following data: date and time of access, name of the subpage/file which is accessed, IP address, referrer URL (original URL from which you have accessed the website), data volume transferred as well as product and version information of the browser used. The log files are evaluated in anonymous form by the operator in order to further improve the website and make it more user-friendly, to find and rectify faults more quickly and to control server capacities. For example, it can be retraced at what time the use of the website is particularly popular and the operator can provide appropriate data volume.
