The log data is stored for 14 days and evaluated solely for statistical purposes. No transfer to third parties takes place, either for commercial or non-commercial purposes.

If there is the possibility of entering personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses) on the website, the disclosure of this data by the user is on an explicitly voluntary basis.
