2.1 Range of data collection

Each time the project websites are called, the system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.
The following data are collected:

    • IP address of the user
    • The Internet service provider of the user (ISP)
    • Date and time of the request
    • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
    • Content of the request (concrete page)
    • Access status / HTTP status code
    • Amount of transferred data
    • Information about the browser type and version

This data is also stored in the log files of the system. Not affected by this is the IP address of a user or other data that allow a direct assignment between data and user. Storage of this data, together with other personal data of the user, does not take place.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f DS-GMO.

2.2 Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. Therefore the IP address of the user must be stored for the duration of the session.
The storage in a log file is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of the information technology system.
An evaluation of the data does not take place. But we reserve the right to check this data retrospectively, if we become aware of concrete indications of an unlawful act.

2.3 Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as the purpose for its collection is no longer necessary.
In case of collecting the data for providing the website, they are deleted when the session is completed.
In addition, they can be stored too if they are provided for by the European or national legislature, in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the owner of this domain is subject.

A deletion of the data takes place even if a storage period prescribed by the mentioned standards expires. But storage of the data over a longer period is possible. In this case, the IP address of the user is removed or anonymised, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

2.4 Opposition and removal option

The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the correct operation of the website. Therefore a possible contradiction by the users of this website is not available.

3. Use of cookies

Please note that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when sending an e-mail) may have security vulnerabilities. Therefore, complete data protection from access by third parties is not possible.

4.4 Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of its collection. For the personal data sent by email, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation ends when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified.

4.5 Opposition and removal option

The user has the opportunity to revoke his consent to processing this personal data at any time. If a user contacts us by e-mail, he may object the storage of his personal data at any time.
