The aforementioned data processing serves to ensure effective and convenient use of our website, to ensure trouble-free operation of the website and to improve the administration of the website.

The basis for processing this data is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. The processing takes place on the basis of our predominantly legitimate interests in a correct and up-to-date presentation of our offer. We do not combine this data with other data sources.
