c. Usage data

Usage data are personal data of a user, which are necessary to enable and invoice the use of telemedia. This includes, in particular, features for identifying the user, information about the beginning and end as well as the scope of the respective use and information about the telemedia used by the user.

e. Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data cannot be attributed to a specific data subject without the inclusion of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person;
 


f. Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer. Cookies always have a period of validity, which can be limited to the end of the user session (so- called session cookies) or can exist for a longer period of time (so-called permanent cookies). These permanent cookies remain on your computer and enable the provider or its partner companies (so-called third party cookies) to recognize your computer on your next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and can decide individually whether to accept them or reject them in certain cases or generally.

2. the existence of appropriate guarantees
a. Pseudonymisation

As far as the provider collects usage data, he always stores them under pseudonyms (in the case of cookies, e.g. via a unique session key). The provider does not combine pseudonymous data with the data about the bearer of the pseudonym (such as inventory data).
 

b. Use of encryption technologies

When transferring data between your computer or mobile device and the provider's server, the provider uses the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) security system. This technology is intended to protect your data from being read by unauthorised third parties and offers a very high standard of security. You can recognize that your data is transmitted in encrypted form by the closed display of a key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.


c. Principles for the determination of storage periods

If you enter data into the contact, order or registration forms of the provider, the provider processes these data exclusively for the purposes stated in each case. All processed personal data will be deleted by the provider after expiry of the storage period.

The provider observes the principle of data minimization. This means that data is processed only to the extent necessary for the purposes of the processing, as is appropriate and necessary for the provision of a functional website and in relation to the content and services offered. Processing is carried out either on the basis of prior consent or if permitted by legal regulations.

3. Processing of log data

When accessing the website of the provider or telemedia used by the provider (described below), your Internet browser automatically transmits certain data to the server of the provider or to the third parties named below for technical reasons. The following data is collected separately from other data that you may transmit to the provider, either by the provider or by the third parties and used for the aforementioned purposes:

- Date and time of the retrieval,
- Access status / Http status code,
- amount of data transferred in each case,
- Web page through which the request comes,
- Browser software and software version
- Operating system and version,

If the data is stored in log files, the usage data is deleted after 7 days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible in accordance with data protection law permits. In this case, the IP addresses are deleted or alienated, so that it is no longer possible to assign the Internet page retrieval to your computer.


The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. There is therefore no possibility of objection on the part of the user.
