Our legitimate interest is based on the data collection purposes listed above. Under no circumstances do we use the collected data to draw conclusions about you as a person.

Both the collection of data for the purpose of providing the website and the storage of data in server log files are required for the operation of the website. Therefore, the user does not have the possibility to object to the collection and storage of data for that purpose.

Our security procedures are continually enhanced as new technology becomes available.
