We are not the body responsible or the data privacy of any linked-to pages.
- Would you like to only browse?
You can visit our Websites without providing any information on your person. We will only save access data in server log files, such as the name of the file you called, the data and time of the call, transmitted data volume and the requesting provider. These data are only evaluated to ensure interference-free operation of the site and to improve our offer. They do not permit us to draw any conclusions regarding your person. For more on this, see item 4 “Automatic collection of access data”.
- Automated collection of access data/server log files
At every access to the website, we automatically collect some technical data that are not personal data.
• The user’s IP address
• The name of the called website or file
• The date and time of the access
• The transferred data volume
• Report on successful call
• Browser type and version
• User’s operating system
• End device used by the user, including MAC address
• Referrer-URL (the last page visited)
These data will not be combined with any other personal data that you are actively entering in the scope of the Website.
The server log files with the above data are automatically deleted after seven days. We reserve saving the server log files for longer if there are any facts that suggest inadmissible access (e.g. attempted hacking or a DOS attack).
- What is an IP address?
The IP address is a globally valid identification of your computer that is unique at the time at which it is assigned to your computer by your internet provider. In its currently most common form (IPv4), it is made up of four digit blocks that are separated by dots. As a private user, you will usually not use a consistent IP address, since your provider will assign it only temporarily (“dynamic IP address”). A permanently assigned IP address (“static IP address”) generally permits clear identification of the user data by this feature. Except for the purpose of tracking inadmissible access to our online offer, we generally do not use these data in a personal manner, but only evaluate anonymously which of our websites are preferred, how many accesses per day take place and similar information.
Our website already supports the new IPv6 addresses. If you already have an IPv6 address, you should know the following: The IPv6 address is made up of eight blocks of four. The first four blocks, like the entire IPv4 address, are typically assigned dynamically for private users. The last four blocks of an IPv6 address (the “Interface-Identifier”), however, are determined by the end device you use to browse the website. Unless set differently in your operating system, this is done using the MAC address. The MAC address is a kind of serial number that is assigned uniquely in the world for every IP-capable device. Therefore, we do not save the last four blocks of your IPv6 address. Generally, we recommend activating the “Privacy Extensions” in your end device to better anonymise the last four blocks of your IPv6 address. Most common operating systems have a “Privacy Extensions” function that is, however, not set in the default settings in some cases.
Cookies are small text files that are saved on your end device when you call our website. Individual services of a website can thus “recognise” you and “remember” what settings you have made. This makes websites more user friendly and therefore helps the users (e.g. by saving login data). Secondly, cookies serve to collect statistical data on website use and to use the acquired data for advertising purposes.
Some cookies are automatically deleted from your end device when you leave the website again (“session cookies”). Other cookies are saved for a certain time that does not exceed two years from case to case (“persistent cookies”). We also use “third-party cookies” that are managed by third parties in order to offer certain services.
