II. General information on data processing

1. Scope of processing of the personal data

In principle, we process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary for the maintenance of a functional website and the provision of our content and services. The processing of our users’ personal data generally occurs only following receipt of the user’s consent. An exception is made in cases where it is not possible to obtain consent in advance for practical reasons and where the processing of the data is permitted by statutory regulations. 

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain consent from the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) a of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) shall serve as the legal basis.

Where the processing of personal data is required for the fulfilment of a contract to which the data subject is party, Art. 6 (1) b of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis. This shall also apply to all processing operations required for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required for the fulfilment of a legal obligation (statutory conditions) to which our company is bound, Art. 6 (1) c of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, Art. 6 (1) d of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, and the interests, basic rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the aforementioned legitimate interest, Art. 6 (1) f of the GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for processing. 

3. Deletion of data and storage duration

The personal data of the data subject are deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose for their storage no longer applies. Storage beyond this point may take place if this is provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the data controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted once the storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless further storage of the data is necessary for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

 

III. Provision of the website and creation of log files 

1. Description and scope of data processing

Each time this website is accessed, our system records data and information from the computer system of the calling computer by means of an automated system. 

The following data are collected as part of this process:

The information stored in the log files can contain the IP address, the browser type, the date and time of the visit, and the system that the visitors use. We only store pseudonymised IP addresses of visitors to the website. At the webserver level, this is performed by default by storing an IP address 123.123.123.XXX in the log file instead of the visitor’s actual IP address, for example, 123.123.123.123. The “XXX” is a random value between 1 and 254, so it is no longer possible to establish the true identity of the visitor. 

These data are also stored in our system’s log files. These data are not stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 (1) f of the GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The system temporarily stores the user’s IP address in order to make the website available on the user’s computer. To do this, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. 

The storage in log files is carried out to ensure the functional capability of the website. The data also help us to optimise the website and ensure the security of our IT systems. No data are evaluated for marketing purposes in this context. 

This is also the reasoning behind our legitimate interest in data processing under Art. 6 (1) f of the GDPR.

4. Storage duration

The data are deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. When data are collected in order to make the website available, this is the case when the respective session ends. 

Mail server log: retention time 7 days

Apache log: 6 months

Backups: stored for 14 days in encrypted format 

5. Possibility of objection and elimination

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is necessary for operating the website. Therefore, there is no possibility for the user to object.

This is also the reasoning behind our legitimate interest in data processing under Art. 6 (1) f of the GDPR.
