To make this possible, your IP address, the date and time of your enquiry and the type of your operating system will be stored and used for a maximum of 180 days. We reserve the right to store this data for a limited time in order to protect our legitimate interests and – in the event of unauthorised access or attempts to cause us deliberate damage by such means – to arrange for personal data to be derived (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR).

International data transfers:
We use services whose providers are partly located outside the European Union ("EU").
