4. Data Collection on Our Website

Cookies

Internet websites sometimes use cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies help us to make our website more user-friendly, more effective, and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are what are called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser at your next visit.

You can set up your browser to tell you when a cookie is set and to only allow cookies in individual cases, to allow cookies in certain cases, or to generally exclude them, and can also activate a setting to automatically delete cookies when the browser is closed. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of the website may be limited.

Cookies that are necessary to perform the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you request are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technologically correct and optimized provision of their services. Inasmuch as other cookies are stored (e.g. cookies to analyze your surfing behavior), these will be discussed separately in this Privacy Policy.

Server Log Files

The provider of this website collects and automatically stores information in server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. These include:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system that is used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server inquiry
  • IP address
  • Data quantity

This data will not be combined with other data sources.

The access logs of the web server record what server inquires have taken place at what times. They contain the following data:

IP, directory protection user, date, time, pages visited, records, status code, data quantity, referrer, user agent, host name visited.

The IP addresses will be saved in an anonymized form. The last three numbers will be removed for this purpose, e.g. 127.0.0.1 becomes 127.0.0.*. IPv6 addresses will also be anonymized. Information about directory protection users will be anonymized after one day.

Error logs that record defective site visits will be deleted after seven days.

Visits over an FTP will be recorded anonymously and stored for 60 days.

The mail logs for sending emails from the web environment will be anonymized after one day and then retained for 60 days. In anonymization, all data about the sender/recipient, etc. will be removed. Only the time the email was sent and how the email was processed are retained (source ID or not sent).

Mail logs for things sent via our mail server are deleted after four weeks. The long retention period is necessary to guarantee the functionality of the mail services and in defense against spam.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows data to be processed to fulfill a contract or for pre-contractual measures, and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, as the website operator has a legitimate interest in storing log files for technologically correct and optimized provision of their services.

If you send inquiries to us using the contact form, your information from the contact form, including the contact information you have indicated, will be stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and for the event that there are any related questions. We will not disclose this data without your consent.

The website contains a contact form that facilitates quick electronic communication with our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for electronic mail (email address). If you contact us by email or using a contact form, the personal data you send will be stored automatically. Any such data that you send to us on a voluntary basis will be stored for the purpose of handling your inquiry or contacting you. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties.

The data entered in the contact form is processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows data to be processed for the fulfillment of a contract or for pre-contractual measures, and of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, as the website operator has a legitimate interest in storing the data.

We collect, process, and use personal data only inasmuch as it is necessary for the establishment, content and structure, or amendment of the legal relationship (stock data). This occurs on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows data to be processed for the fulfillment of a contract or for pre-contractual measures. We only collect, process, and use personal data about the use of our website (usage data) inasmuch as it is necessary to allow the user to use the services or to bill them for such use.

The customer data that is collected will be deleted after the order is concluded or the business relationship is ended. Statutory retention periods remain reserved.

Data Disclosures at Contractual Conclusion for Services and Digital Contents

We only disclose personal data to third parties if this is necessary in the context of contract processing, such as to the credit institute charged with processing payment.

Any other disclosure of data will not occur, or will only occur if you have explicitly consented to the disclosure. Any disclosure of your data to third parties without your explicit consent, such as for advertising purposes, will not occur.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows data to be processed for the fulfillment of a contract or for pre-contractual measures.
