II. What data is collected on this website?
1. Access data and log files
During the mere informational use of this website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to me, only such data is collected that your browser transmits to my server for technically necessary reasons. When you call up my website, the following data in particular is collected, which is technically necessary to display the website to you:
IP address (network address)
Address of the web page you came from
Address of the retrieved files (call address = URL)
Date and time of a call
as well as operating system and browser version of your terminal device (user agent)
Collecting data initially only means that we (usually actually only our server) can factually gain knowledge of this data. Collecting data does not mean that data is stored. However, of the data just mentioned, some are stored in log files without any reason. This does not include the IP address. At most, this is logged on an ad hoc basis, for example if so many accesses are made in a short period of time that it can be assumed that there has been misuse or an attack (e.g. denial of service).
If your network address were not transmitted to our server, it would not even know to whom to display the web page. This is analogous to a letter: If the sender is missing, the recipient cannot reply.
IP addresses are stored, if at all, only for specified purposes and for a specified duration. The duration is a maximum of five days, unless otherwise specified. The purposes are only those that are in our legitimate interest to ensure the operation of this website. This includes the defense against malicious attacks or excessive use of our offer.
When using this data, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, the information collected is only required for the following purposes:
Ensuring a smooth connection of the website
Ensuring comfortable use
Ensuring system security and stability
Other administrative purposes
The statistical evaluation of anonymized data sets is reserved. This means, for example: We would like to know which post on our website was called up how often.
The legal basis for my data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 f DSGVO. The legitimate interest follows in this respect from the purposes for data collection listed above. The data of server log files are always stored separately from any personal data provided by you. A combination is not possible.
