This includes information such as:
- Your client IP address,
- the name and the URL of the file that has been requested,
- the website from which the access has been made,
- the name and the description of the internet browser you have used,
- the date and time of each access,
- the amount of data transmitted.
The information is stored in a so-called log file on the server of our website and is automatically deleted there after 4 weeks.
The IP address is processed for technical and administrative purposes of connection establishment and connection stability in order to ensure the security and functionality of our website and to be able to track any illegal attacks if necessary.
The information is also used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and internet usage for the purpose of market research and needs based website design.
The legal basis for processing the IP address and other information from the log file is Article 6 para.1 S.1 lit. f of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest derives from the security interest mentioned and the need for a trouble-free and user-friendly provision of our website. From the processing of the IP address and other information in the log file, we can not draw any direct conclusions about your identity.
Only authorised personnel who are responsible for the management of the servers are authorised to access the data. As no personal assignment takes place, the data records for the statistical evaluation are only kept in anonymous form by deleting the last charcter block of the IP address.
Specific personal data, such as email addresses, first name, name, telephone number or address, are requested for separate services and activities. In particular, a request for personal data is considered when you register to access our website, when you request to use a special service and when you take part in a prize competition.
