Depending on your way of access to the Internet, the IP address may be completely anonymous, or your access provider stores the assignment of a dynamic IP address to you. In the latter case, combining the above-mentioned data with that of your access provider can eventually make a connection between you personally and the above-mentioned data. However, we will only initiate this if this is appropriate in individual cases for the purposes of legal prosecution, and we will otherwise only cooperate in this if this is ordered by competent authorities or courts in individual cases.

We rely on a 3rd party provider to create crash reports. We have concluded a contract with the provider as required by data protection law, which ensures that they only process the personal data of our website visitors according to our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.
