Server log files:

 Host name of the accessing computer

 Time of the server request

 IP address

These are required to identify attacks, faulty code or general errors and are automatically deleted from the web server after four weeks. A merging of this data with other data sources does not take place. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Paragraph 1, b GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
