3. Purposes, type, scope and legal basis of data processing
The use of our website is possible without registration. Nevertheless, personal data may also be processed when you use our website without logging on.
In the following, we would like to give you an overview of the purpose, type and scope of the processing of your personal data as well as the respective legal basis by which we base the processing of your data.
When accessing and using our website, the following data is processed:

We process this information in order to provide our website for use and to ensure the technical operation as well as for the purpose of fault diagnosis and troubleshooting.
We base the processing of this data on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 letter f DS-GVO. Data processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interest in enabling our customers and prospects to use our website and to ensure its technical functionality.
When you visit our website, this data is processed automatically. The provision of this data is neither legally nor contractually required and is not required for a contract. Without the provision of the data you can not use our services.
We usually delete this data after seven days, unless we exceptionally need it for the purposes mentioned above. In such case, we will delete the data immediately after the purpose has expired.
3.2. Log files
When visiting and using our website, our web server stores certain log information in a file (log file) via this process. Log files contain in particular the following information:
- Called URL
- IP address of the user (anonymised)
- Time and date of access
- Amount of data transferred
- Website from which the user came to the requested page (so-called “Referrer”)
- Websites that are accessed by the user’s system through our website
- Http status
- Information about the browser type and version used
- Operating system of the user
- Internet service provider of the user
The IP addresses of users are anonymised shortly after the connection to the website. We evaluate these records only for statistical purposes, to improve the website, for system security reasons (e.g. preventing misuse) and for fault diagnosis.
The data will also be stored anonymously in the log files of our system. Storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.
The purpose of the temporary storage of the IP address is to enable the presentation of the website on the computer of the user. For this purpose, storage of the IP address of the user for the duration of the session is necessary.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data (and log files) is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) DS-GVO. SWB has a legitimate interest in ensuring the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
The data will be deleted or anonymised after elimination of the purpose. In the case of collecting the data for provisioning the website, this is the case when the respective session is completed.
When storing the data in log files, this is the case after no more than seven days. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

We also use long-term cookies, which are mainly used to provide you with permanently recurring settings as a visitor to our website.
