• your IP address,
• the name of the called-up website and/or retrieved file as well as the time of the calling-up and/or retrieval,
• the transmitted data volume; and
• whether the calling-up or retrieval was successful.

The data will exclusively be used for an administration and optimization of the Internet offer.
The IP address may be a personal piece of information since it is possible under certain circumstances to find out the identity of the owner of the used Internet access by information from the respective Internet provider.

We will evaluate the IP address only in the case of attacks on our Internet infrastructure. In this case we have a justified interest in the processing of the IP address pursuant to Art. 6 sect. 1 f) DSGVO [General Data Protection Regulation] This justified interest is based on the need to ward off attacks on the Internet infrastructure, find out the origin of the attack for filing criminal and civil action against the responsible person as well as prevent other attacks efficiently.
