Data Protection Declaration / Notes on Data Protection
Hosting services by jweiland
Within the scope of data processing on our behalf jweiland provide for us services for the hosting and presentation of the website. All data collected in the course of using this website or in forms provided for this purpose are processed on their servers within Germany. Processing on other servers only takes place within the scope explained here.
When visiting our internet pages, data is collected, processed, and used, for which a personal reference cannot always be excluded. In order for the pages to be displayed in your browser, the IP address must be identified and stored. Usually, an IP address is assigned dynamically by your provider. This address usually changes regularly, so that we cannot establish a personal reference from the IP address. With static IP addresses, however, the creation of a personal reference would be theoretically possible in individual cases.
In detail, the following data record is stored for each retrieval:
IP address of the calling computer
Operating system of the calling computer
Browser version of the calling computer
Name of the retrieved file
Date and time of the retrieval
Transmitted data volume
The stored data is only evaluated for statistical purposes and not for the creation of a concrete personal reference. The data will also be used, if necessary, to enable the correction of errors. IP addresses are deleted after 72 hours at the latest.
You can see the duration of the storage in the cookie settings of your web browser. You can set your browser to inform you about the setting of cookies and decide individually about their acceptance or to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally. Every browser differs in the way it manages cookie settings. It is described in the help menu of each browser, where it is explained how you can change your cookie settings. You will find these for the respective browsers under the following links:
Web analysis by Matomo (formerly PIWIK)
1. Scope of the processing of personal data: We use the Matomo (formerly PIWIK) open source software tool on our website to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. The software sets a cookie on the user's computer (for cookies, see above). If individual pages of our website are called up, the following data is stored:
a. Two bytes of the IP address of the user's calling system
b. The accessed website
c. The website from which the user has reached the accessed website (referrer)
d. The subpages that are accessed from the accessed web page
e. The time spent on the website
f. The frequency of visiting the website
The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. The personal data of the users are only stored there. The data will not be passed on to third parties.
2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data: The legal basis for the processing of users' personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
3. Purpose of data processing: The processing of users' personal data enables us to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information on the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its user-friendliness (“usability”). These purposes also include our legitimate interest in processing the data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR. By rendering the IP address anonymous, the interest of the users in their protection of personal data is sufficiently taken into account.
4. Duration of storage: The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our recording purposes. For our website this is the case after 12 months.
