Provision of website and creation of log files
Whenever our website is accessed our system automatically captures information about the system used by the calling computer and/ or the user’s terminal equipment. The following data are thus collected:
- Information about your browser type and its currently used version
- The operating system run on the user’s terminal equipment
- The user’s internet service provider
- The user’s IP address
- Date and time of access
- Websites from which the user’s system is landing on our website
- Websites accessed by the user’s system through our website
These data are stored in log files by our technical service provider STRATO AG with its registered offices in Pascalstraße 10 in 10587 Berlin, where our website is hosted. We ourselves do not have access thereto.
The legal basis for temporary storage of your data and respective log files is set out in the General Data Protection Regulation DS-GVO, Section 6, Paragraph 1, lit. f as it pertains to our legitimate interests as the responsible website operator. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to deliver the website to the user’s computer. To this end, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. The legitimate interest for creating these log files is based on the ability to detect and ward off attacks.
These data are deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for the purpose for which they were collected. In the event that these data were collected to deliver the website they will be deleted at the end of respective session. Webserver log files are stored for seven days.
Collecting data to deliver the website and storing data in log files is absolutely necessary for operating the website. Therefore, the user may not object against this.
We process all personal data which are provided to us and are necessary to respond to your query. This applies to both the communication with the inquirer and the creation and execution of a contract.
The legal basis for processing data provided by contacting us is set out in the General Data Protection Regulation, Section 6, Paragraph 1, lit. f. A legitimate interest shall be constituted by the act of communicating. If such communication serves the purpose to conclude a contract, Section 6, Paragraph 1, lit. b of the General Data Protection Regulation shall serve as a subsidiary legal basis for processing.
All data shall be deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for the purpose for which they were collected. For personal data provided by email or through the contact form, this shall be applicable as soon as the conversation with the user has ended. A conservation shall be deemed to have ended if the circumstances allow the conclusion that the respective matter has been fully settled. By way of derogation, we may be obligated to store data longer and up to a period of ten years in accordance with legal retention periods (in particular Section 147 German Tax Code Abgabenordnung, Section 257 German Commercial Code Handelsgesetzbuch and Section 66 German Tax Consulting Law Steuerberatungsgesetz).
Your personal data shall not be passed on to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. We shall pass on your personal data to third parties only if
- you explicitly gave us your agreement as per Section 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. a DS-GVO;
- this is necessary to create, execute or terminate contractual relationships with our enterprise (Section 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. b DS-GVO);
- there is a legal obligation to pass data on as per Section 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. c DS-GVO;
- pursuant to Section 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO, passing data on is necessary to establish, exercise or defend against legal claims and if there is no reason to assume that you may have an overriding and legitimate private interest in not having your data passed on.
