III. Passive use of the website

1. Description and scope of data processing

In principle, it is possible to use our website without providing any personal data.Nevertheless, every time our website is called up, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. The following data is collected:

  • Information about the browser type and the version used.
  • The operating system of the user
  • The IP address of the user
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites from which the user's system accesses our website
  • Web pages that are accessed by the user's system via our website

The data is stored in the log files of our system.This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user. Personal user profiles cannot be formed. This information is rather required in order to

  • deliver the contents of our website correctly,
  • optimize the content of our website as well as the advertising for it,
  • ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and
  • provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.

Therefore, we statistically evaluate this anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, so that we can ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

2. Legal basis for the data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is the data processing our legitimate interest based on a balancing of interests pursuant to Art 6 (1) lit f) DSGVO.

3. Purpose of the data processing

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 user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

5. Possibility of objection and elimination

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.
