Soweit eine Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten zur Erfüllung einer rechtlichen Verpflichtung erforderlich ist, der unser Unternehmen unterliegt, dient Art.6 Abs.1 lit.c DSGVO als Rechtsgrundlage.
Für den Fall, dass lebenswichtige Interessen der betroffenen Person oder einer anderen natürlichen Person eine Verarbeitung personenbezogener Daten erforderlich machen, dient Art.6 Abs.1 lit.d DSGVO als Rechtsgrundlage.

(4) The IP address of the user
(5) Date and time of access

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and logfiles is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. To do this, the user’s IP address must be kept for the duration of the session. Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. For these purposes, our legitimate interest lies in the processing of data in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The data will be deleted or anonymized after reaching the purpose of their collection, so that an assignment of the called client is no longer possible. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. There is consequently no contradiction on the part of the user.
Rechtsgrundlage für die vorübergehende Speicherung der Daten und der Logfiles ist Art.6 Abs.1 lit.f DSGVO. Die vorübergehende Speicherung der IP-Adresse durch das System ist notwendig, um eine Auslieferung der Website an den Rechner des Nutzers zu ermöglichen. Hierfür muss die IP-Adresse des Nutzers für die Dauer der Sitzung gespeichert bleiben. Die Speicherung in Logfiles erfolgt, um die Funktionsfähigkeit der Website sicherzustellen. Zudem dienen uns die Daten zur Optimierung der Website und zur Sicherstellung der Sicherheit unserer informationstechnischen Systeme. Eine Auswertung der Daten zu Marketingzwecken findet in diesem Zusammenhang nicht statt. In diesen Zwecken liegt auch unser berechtigtes Interesse an der Datenverarbeitung nach Art.6 Abs.1 lit.f DSGVO. Die Daten werden nach Erreichung des Zwecks ihrer Erhebung gelöscht oder anonymisiert, sodass eine Zuordnung des aufgerufenen Clients nicht mehr möglich ist. Die Erfassung der Daten zur Bereitstellung der Website und die Speicherung der Daten in Logfiles ist für den Betrieb der Internetseite zwingend erforderlich. Es besteht folglich seitens des Nutzers keine Widerspruchsmöglichkeit.
