Server log files
The provider of this website automatically records and stores information in server log files and these are automatically transmitted to us. That information is as follows:
- Browser type and version
- Your operating system
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server enquiry
- IP address
This data cannot be assigned to an individual. This data will not be combined with data from other sources. We reserve the right to check the data subsequently if specific signs of illegal use are detected.
In order to ensure the security of the site and the confidential content passed through the site, as in the case of enquiries you send to us as a website operator, we use SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address (URL) bar of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and you will see a padlock symbol in the address bar.
When the SSL encryption mode is activated, data that you transmit to us cannot be intercepted by third parties.
