a) Providing the Website

Each time the TU Hamburg website is accessed and used, the system automatically collects data and information. This data and information are stored in server log files. Our web servers are operated by Martin Hetzner - Hetzner Online GmbH, Vercel Inc. and Sanity Inc.

In detail, the following data is stored for each access:

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.
