4. What does this mean in detail related to the provision of this website with the services therein?

4.1 Provision of the website and establishment of log files

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically records data and information from computer systems of the accessing computer. In the process, the following data is recorded:

  1. information regarding the browser type and version used
  2. the user's operating system
  3. the user's internet service provider
  4. the user's IP address
  5. date and time of access
  6. websites from which the user's system reaches our website
  7. websites which were accessed by the user's system via our website

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored in connection with other personal data of the user.

Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR is the legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and log files.
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow the export of the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address has to remain stored for the duration of the session. The log files are stored to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data assist us in the optimisation of the website and the security of our information technology systems. The data is not analysed for marketing purposes in this context. These purposes also represent our justified interest in the data processing according to Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

The data is deleted as soon as the purpose of its recording ceases to exist. If the data is recorded for the provision of our website, deletion occurs once the respective session is terminated.

In the event of data being stored in log file, this moment is reached after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this point is not possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or distorted so any allocation of the calling client is no longer possible.

Recording the data to provide the website and store the data in log files is urgently required for the operation of the website. Consequently, the user is not able to object.
