Information on Data protection

2. Processing of personal data when visiting the Website

(1)  When you visit our Website, we collect the following information that may contain personal data and that your browser automatically transmits to our server:

  • IP address
  • date and time of the request
  • time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • content of the request (specific page)
  • access status/HTTP status code
  • the amount of data transferred in each case
  • website from which the request comes
  • browser
  • operating system and its surface
  • language and version of the browser software.

(2)   Collecting these data is technically necessary to display the website and to ensure stability and security. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR (protection of legitimate interests, provided that interests of the person concerned do not outweigh interests).

(3)   The IP addresses of the users will be deleted or made anonymous after the end of use. In the case of anonymization, the IP addresses are changed in such a way that the individual information about personal or factual circumstances can no longer be assigned to a specific or identifiable natural person, or only with a disproportionately large expenditure of time, cost and manpower; anonymized data therefore no longer allow any personal reference.

3. Cookies, Analysis-Tools, Social Media Plug-ins and Profiling

We do not use cookies or analysis tools to evaluate the use of our Website. We also do not use social media plug-ins or methods of automated decision making according to Art. 22 GDPR or profiling.

4. Contact inquiries

(1)  Our Website does not contain a mask for online enquiries, so that personal data are processed via our Website only to the extent described above under section 1.

(2)  If you contact us for a mandate, we will provide you with detailed information on the processing of personal data when engaging us and when we provide legal services to you or represent you. We will also inform you, among other things, about the relevant legal basis for this.
