This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by sennder both statistically and with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security in our enterprise, to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data we process. These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in data processing pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO.
