3. Scope of personal data processing
Purpose of data processing
Our processing of personal user data is limited to data that is required to provide a functioning website as well as our content and services. The personal data of our users is processed exclusively for the specified purposes or for other legitimate purposes (as defined by the GDPR). We will only collect personal data that is actually required for performing and processing our tasks and services or that you have provided to us voluntarily.
Provision of website
For the purpose of monitoring technical functionality and to increase the operational security of the web server, this website processes the following personal data in a server log file on the basis of the responsible provider’s overriding legitimate interest (technical security measures):
IP, directory authentication user, date, time, pages accessed, protocols, status code, data volume, referrer, user agent, hostname called
IP addresses are anonymized in this process. The anonymized IP addresses are deleted after 60 days. Information on directory authentication is anonymized after one day. Error logs to record faulty page views are deleted after seven days. In addition to error messages, they include the accessing IP address and the requested web page, depending on the error.
The data collected by Google may be transmitted by Google in countries outside of the EU and EEA, particularly in the United States. In this case, Google will truncate your IP address with IP anonymization on this website within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Google has agreed to participate in the Privacy Shield Framework. Further information about your corresponding rights can be found at http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/document/citizens-guide_en.pdf.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This ensures that IP addresses are used in a truncated format to rule out any personal traceability to users. Accordingly, any personal reference that is included in data collected about you will be voided at once and the personal data will be deleted right away.
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6(1), sentence 1, lit. f, GDPR.
