• Browser type and version used
• Operating system used
• Referrer URL (previously visited page)
• IP address of user

This data cannot be matched to a specific user. This data will not be merged with other data sources. The provider, however, retains the right to retrospectively check protocol data if there is reasonable suspicion (due to concrete indications) of unlawful use.
