We strive for the greatest possible data economy and transparency when processing personal data. Our websites can usually be used without providing any personal data. The regulations on data protection are observed.
If you have any questions about data protection, you can contact us at .
1. Data collection and processing when accessed from the Internet
When you visit our websites, our web servers automatically record each access in a log file. The following data is stored:
- IP address
- Name and URL of the retrieved file
- Date and time of access
- Amount of data transferred
- Message whether the retrieval was successful
- URL of the referring page
- Web server access status (file transferred, file not found, command not executed, etc.)

The stored data is not passed on to third parties and is only used to optimize the website and for troubleshooting. The stored data will be deleted after 14 days.
We partner with Microsoft Clarity and Microsoft Advertising to capture how you use and interact with our website through behavioral metrics, heatmaps, and session replay to improve and market our products/services. Website usage data is captured using first and third-party cookies and other tracking technologies to determine the popularity of products/services and online activity. Additionally, we use this information for site optimization, fraud/security purposes, and advertising. For more information about how Microsoft collects and uses your data, visit the Microsoft Privacy Statement.
2. Hosting and Content Delivery Network (CDN)
We use Microsoft Azure as a web hosting and content delivery network provider for our website. Service provider is the American company Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The legitimate interest consists in an error-free function of the website. Microsoft Corporation has certified itself under the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement (see www.privacyshield.gov/list).
Microsoft uses so-called standard contractual clauses (= Art. 46 Para. 2 and 3 GDPR) as the basis for data processing by recipients based in third countries (outside the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, i.e. in particular in the USA) or data transfer there. Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) are templates provided by the EU Commission and are intended to ensure that your data also comply with European data protection standards if they are transferred to third countries (such as the USA) and stored there. Through these clauses, Microsoft undertakes to comply with European data protection standards when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed and managed in the USA. These clauses are based on an implementation decision of the EU Commission. You can find the decision and the corresponding standard contractual clauses here: [eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj](https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl /2021/914/oj?locale=en)

We use the file processing and upload tool Uploadcare for our website. Service provider is the Canadian company Uploadcare Inc., Burrard St, Vancouver, BC V7X 1M8, Canada.
Your data may also be processed in Canada and thus outside the scope of the GDPR. The European Commission has decided that there is an adequate level of protection for commercial offers from Canada in accordance with Article 45 (1) GDPR. This means that data can be transferred to this country. You can consult the decision here: eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/en/TXT/?uri=CELEX%3A32002D0002.
