6. Data protection information on provision of the website and production of log files
6.1 Description and scope of data processing
When you visit our website, data is collected from the web server for the transfer of data (information from the computer system of the requesting computer) and sometimes stored in log files on the web server, which give information on e.g. the end device and browser used, the time of access, the so-called referrer and the quantity of data transferred.
The following data is collected in this way:
- The user’s IP address
- Date and time of request
- Name and URL of the retrieved file
- Status of access/http status code
- Quantity of data transmitted
- Referring URL (referrer)
- The browser used, the language and version of the browser software, the operating system and its interface
- Your access provider name
The data is stored in our system’s log files. This data is not stored together with the user’s other personal data.
Retrieval of data / Download
Every time a file is downloaded, data about this process is stored in a log file.
In detail, the following data record is stored for each retrieval:
- Name of the downloaded file
- Status of the request (success/error
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and log files is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
It is necessary for the system to store the IP address temporarily to enable the website to be sent to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.
Storage in log files is carried out to ensure the functionality of the website. We also use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. An analysis of the data for marketing purposes is not carried out in this context.
We keep the right to check server logfiles afterwards if there are concrete indications of illegal use.
We also have a legitimate interest in data processing for these purposes in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
The data will be erased as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose of its collection. When data is collected tooperate a website, this is the case when the relevant session ends.
When data is stored in log files, this is the case after three months at the latest. Extended storage is possible. In this case, users’ IP addresses will be erased or distorted so that assignment to the requesting client is no longer possible.
Recording data to operate the website and storing the data in log files is essential for running the website. Therefore, the user does not have any right to object.
