This data is technically necessary to display the website to you and to ensure stability and security, in particular to be able to detect and prevent attacks or abusive calls. We delete the log files that contain this data after seven days, unless otherwise stated in this privacy policy. The collection of this data is based on the legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR data.

4.    Disclosure of data to third parties
If we disclose data to other persons and/or companies, e.g., order processors or third parties, transfer it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of a legal permission (e.g., if a transfer of data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract), you have consented pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, a legal obligation provides for this pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR or on the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (e.g., when using agents, web hosts, etc.).

Unless otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we delete the data pursuant to Art. 17 GDPR or restrict the processing pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR after the storage is no longer necessary for the processing purpose stated in each case.
