Rather, we use this information, on the one hand, to improve our website and its content as well as the advertising for it, and, on the other hand, to be able to ensure the functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website in the long term as well as to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
