We use this data for statistical purposes and to analyze, further develop and improve internet usage. The following data is collected in this context:
// IP address
// Name of the retrieved file
// Date and time of retrieval
// Data volume transferred
// Message whether the retrieval was successful
// Message why a retrieval has failed, if applicable
// Operating system and browser software of your device
// Website from which you visit us
