Included are: name of the website, file, date, amount of data, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your Internet provider, the so-called Referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our offers) and the IP address.

Without this data, it would not be technically possible to ensure the proper delivery and display of the contents of the website in all circumstances.

Comments

If comments or other contributions are written and published on our website, we store the IP address, username and time of creation. This data is collected for security reasons, as the provider of illegal content (prohibited propaganda, insults, etc.) can be prosecuted, even if they were created by third parties. In such a case, the information serves to determine the identity of the author.

This process is used in the case, inter alia, statistical purposes. If we are aware that the IP address is being stored, we will inform our users.
