This software does not record data through which we can derive personal information, but we will learn your IP address when accessing our website. This data will only be used in anonymized and summarized form for statistical purposes and for the development of the website. These purposes for the processing are grounds for the legitimate interest we pursue (Article 6(1) f) GDPR.
