This data will not be merged with other data sources.
This data is collected on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in technically proper display and optimisation of its website – which requires collecting the server log files.
When using the contact form for enquiries, we will only store the information from the contact form including the contact information provided by you to process your request and for follow-up questions. This data will not be shared without your consent.

We keep the data entered in the contact form until you request erasure, you withdraw your consent to storage, or the purpose for storing the data no longer exists (e.g. after completing your request). Compulsory legal provisions – special retention periods – remain unaffected.
