Specific information about the website

Website Log Files

When you visit our websites, your browser transmits certain data to our web server for technical reasons.  The following data are recorded during the ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:

  • Date and time of your request
  • Name of the requested file
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • Type and version of the browser and the operating system you use
  • Full IP address of the requesting computer
  • Quantity of data transferred

For reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attacks on our web server, we store these data for a short period of time. It is impossible to discern the identity of individual persons based on this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymized by shortening the IP address at the domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish any reference to the individual user. The anonymized data will also be processed for statistical purposes. We don’t compare any data to data in other databases or forward them to third parties, even in excerpts.  The collection and storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

Data security
The transmission of information over the Internet can be unsafe. We cannot decide which channels the information flows through before arriving in our systems. We cannot therefore, as a general rule, warrant for the secure transmission of the data sent to our website.

However, we take technical and organisational measures in order to safeguard our website and the other IT systems connected to it against loss, destruction, access and modifications and also to prevent the dissemination of your data by unauthorised persons. These measures include the encryption of the data transfer between your computer system and our website. The encryption makes it extremely difficult for unauthorised persons to view information transmitted between computers. It is therefore very unlikely that anyone has read this web page while it was being sent over the network.

Data protection and third-party websites
The website may contain hyperlinks to and from third party websites. If you follow a hyperlink to one of these websites, please be advised that we cannot assume any liability or provide any warranty for third-party contents or data protection provisions.  Please check the relevant applicable data protection provisions before transmitting personal data to these websites.
