Your data will not be used to draw conclusions about your person. This type of information is only evaluated statistically to optimize our website and the technology behind it.

Storage duration
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected. This is generally the case for data serving the provision of the website when the respective session has ended.

When visitors create or edit documents on the website, we collect the data shown in the respective form, as well as the visitor's IP address and the user-agent string (which identifies the browser) to support the detection of spam.
