- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6(1) 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfil contractual obligation or to undertake measures leading to such a contract.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you have provided there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up enquiries. We do not pass on these data without your consent.
We will therefore process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent (Art. 6 para. 1lit. a GDPR). You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal message sent to us by email is sufficient to do this. The legality of the data processing performed prior to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until such time as you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer applies (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions – especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods – remain unaffected by this provision.
