1. Server LOG FILES
Every time you browse our website, our server automatically records 'log files' containing statistical information sent by your browser. This may include, for example, the page(s) visited, the file retrieved, the date and time of the server request, the amount of data transferred, a message about successful retrieval, the browser type and version, the operating system used, the referrer URL (previously visited page), the IP address of the requesting computer.These data are only used for statistical analysis of visits to our site. We cannot identify you from log files. The legal basis for data processing is set out in Article 6 (1) f GDPR. The data are not combined with other data sources, and your IP address is anonymised. Our legitimate interest in collecting this data is based on the fact that we can use the data to optimise our services for users, for example by preventing access to malicious sites or optimising access via certain browsers, and that the log of the IP address makes it possible to deliver the site to the visitor in the first place. In principle, you have the right to object to the data collection. However, recording and storing these data in log files are essential for the availability and operation of the website. You therefore have no right to object in this regard. The data will be deleted after 7 days.

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent; refer also to Section 4 below on your data subject rights.

Your information is shared with banks to allow payments to be made.
