2. data collection with the exception of analytics tools, social media and plugins.
Server log files
When you access this page, our provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
Browser type and version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data based on legitimate interest. In this case, there is a legitimate interest in the secure and trouble-free operation of the web server.
To ensure this, it must be possible to detect and trace attacks and malfunctions of the system via the server log files. In order to recognize attack patterns and to be able to trace the attacker or its provider, if necessary, accesses to the server must be stored for a certain period of time, including the traceable source of the access (complete IP address). The maximum storage period is seven days. As soon as this data is no longer required, it is deleted.
You can object to this processing of your data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. In this case, we will check in each individual case whether we still need your data for the trouble-free operation of the web server for the remaining period of storage. If this is not the case, we will delete your data.

In addition, it is possible to contact us via the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored.

The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the fulfillment of an existing contract (in particular a client relationship) or the conclusion of a contract (in particular a client relationship), the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

The same applies if you register for a webinar held by us with an external webinar provider (via a link placed on our website or which we send in an invitation e-mail) and the webinar provider forwards the personal data collected from you to us. Processing for direct marketing purposes also includes, in particular, the sending of (other) newsletters and publications as well as webinar or event invitations.
The legal basis for the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing.

The IP address is not merged with other data from Google.
We do not use the Universal Analytics with User ID offered by Google.
If necessary, the collected data will be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process the data on behalf.
The user data collected via cookies is automatically deleted after 14 months.

In particular, it is transmitted to Google which of our websites you have visited as well as device-specific information including the IP address.
Here, we use the "extended data protection mode" option provided by YouTube. When you call up a page that has an embedded video, this merely establishes a connection to the YouTube servers and in the process displays the content on the website by notifying your browser when you actually watch the video.
If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, this information will be assigned to your YouTube member account. You can prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website. Your data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the purpose of processing.
