It is entirely up to you to decide whether you want to let us know these data, for instance as part of a registration, contact request, etc. Usually, we use your personal data to answer your inquiry, to process your order or to provide you with access to specific information or offers.
When you access our websites or retrieve a file, data of this process are stored in a log file on our web server. The only information which will be saved is access data, which has no personal relation. To optimize our system performance, user-friendliness and representing useful information about our products and services we automatically save information in a log file on your computer. We save:

We deliberately do not log any IP addresses so as to enable you to use our websites anonymously. Your IP address is pseudonymised by a data privacy-conforming process before it is stored in our web server log file. We use these pseudonymised IP addresses e.g. to identify and counteract attacks or to prepare web statistics.
