The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
Access data/server log files

Name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider only uses the log data for statistical evaluations for the purposes of operation, security and optimization of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently check the log data if there is reasonable suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete evidence.
Handling of personal data
Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or phone number. But data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites someone has viewed also count as personal data.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or if the users consent to the data collection.
When contacting the provider (e.g. via contact form or email), the user's information is stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
