When you visit our website, the following data of the device or the browser you are using is collected and stored in a log file:
- IP address

- Name and URL of the retrieved file
- Website from which the first access takes place (referrer URL)

We use this information for technical purposes in order to deliver the contents of our website to you and to ensure the safe operation of our services.
Furthermore, we use this data for statistical purposes, to understand which devices with which characteristics and settings are used to visit our website, in order to optimise it. These statistics do not contain any personal information. The legal basis for the use of data for the compilation of statistics is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
The IP address of your terminal device is anonymised if the complete storage is no longer necessary for the technical purposes you have initiated. The complete address will therefore not be stored for non-technical purposes unless this is necessary to detect and prevent attacks (e.g. preventing unlawful access, spying on data, spreading malware (e.g. viruses) or other unlawful purposes) against the systems used for our website. Such attacks would impair the proper functioning of the technology, the use of our website or its functionality and the security of visitors to our website. We herewith pursue the legitimate interest of ensuring the operability of our website and to ward off illegal attacks against us and the visitors to our website. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR. Also in this case the stored IP data are deleted (by anonymization), if they are no longer needed for the recognition or defense of an attack.
When you create a customer account, we process the information you provide to us to create and manage the account and to enable you to use the services associated with your customer account. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 b GDPR. If you create a customer account in order to conclude a contract with us, the legal basis for the corresponding processing of your data is also Art. 6 para. 1 b GDPR.
These data are stored until the deletion of the customer account. If we are required by law to store the data for a longer period of time (e.g. to fulfil accounting obligations) or if we are legally entitled to store the data for a longer period of time (e.g. due to a current legal dispute against the owner of a user account), the data will be deleted after expiry of the storage obligation or legal entitlement.
If you receive a license to use the software provided by us this license is linked with your customer account. At each launch of the software and periodically while running the software the software will verify that your license is still active and that you do use the software within the license granted by inquiring our license server over the internet. For these purposes the following information will be send to our license server:
- IP address
- Date and time of access
- User and System Identifier
The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR as these measures protect us against illegal use of our software.
The data will be deleted within seven days when our license server has verified the request. If the software is used outside the license granted the software will stop running and can not be launched anymore.
