On calling up our websites some information is transferred, e.g. IP-address, type and version of the web browser used, the operating system used, the website from which you have come and the time of your visit.

This data cannot be used by us to identify the individual users. The information is evaluated by us purely statistically and is used only to improve the attractiveness, content and functionality of our websites.

Person-specific data is only recorded by us if you disclose this to us and if it is necessary for making use of our services.
