Data Storage Period
Data Storage Period Personal data stored when contacting us will be erased when the matter for which we were contacted has been fully resolved and there is no reason to believe that the specific message will be necessary again in the future.
2. Server Logfiles
When our website is accessed, we automatically collect technical data that represents personal data, i.e.:
• The user’s IP address
• Name of the accessed website or file
• Time and date of access
• Volume of data transferred
• Successful access report
• Browser type and version
• The user’s operating system
• The user’s device, including MAC address
• Referrer URL (last visited page)
This data will not be merged with other personal data you provide when actively using our website. We collect server logfiles to administer our website and identify and prevent unauthorized access.
We process personal data in logfiles on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation. This permission authorizes the processing of personal data in the controller’s “legitimate interest,” unless overridden by your fundamental rights, fundamental freedoms or interests. Our legitimate interest consists of simplifying administration and identifying and tracing hacks. You may object to this data processing at any time on grounds related to your particular situation that speak against processing this data. Simply send an email to: kontakt(at)trenn-hinweis.de.
What Are IP Addresses?
IP addresses are assigned to any device (e.g., smartphone, tablet, PC) connected to the Internet. Which IP address this is depends on your device’s Internet connection. This may be an IP address assigned to you by your Internet service provider, e.g., when you connect to the Internet at home via WLAN. Or this may be an IP address assigned by your mobile service provider or the IP address of a public or private WLAN or another Internet access provider. In its currently most common form (IPv4), an IP address consists of four octets. As a private user, you will not normally use an unchanging IP address because your provider will assign you an IP address temporarily (so-called “dynamic IP address”). A permanently assigned IP address (so-called “static IP address”) makes identification through user data easier. However, except to trace unauthorized access of our Internet offer, we do not use such data for personal identification, but merely to assess which of our pages are favored, how often they are accessed daily, etc., on an anonymized basis.
Our website supports new IPv6 addresses. If you already have an IPv6 address, please note: An IPv6 address consists of eight octets. Like for an entire IPv4 address, the first four octets are normally assigned to private users dynamically. However, the last four octets of an IPv6 address (so-called “interface identifiers”) are determined by the device you use to browse our website. Unless configured differently by your operating system, the so-called MAC address will be used for this. The MAC address is a kind of serial number assigned once to every IP-ready device. We therefore do not save the last four octets of your IPv6 address. We generally recommend activating the so-called “privacy extensions” on your device to better anonymize the last four octets of your IPv6 address. Most common operating systems have a “privacy extensions” function which, however, may not always be preconfigured.
Data Storage Period
The server logfiles containing the above-stated data will be automatically erased after 30 days. However, we reserve the right to store these server logfiles for a longer period in case of indications of unauthorized access (e.g., attempted hacks or so-called DDOS attacks).
3. Steps Prior to Entering Into and Performance of a Contract
If you conclude a contract of use with us through this website, the data you entered will be processed by us for steps prior to entering into and performance of the agreement.
If you are personally party to the agreement, the legal basis is Article 6(1)(b) of the General Data Protection Regulation. If you are merely the contact person for a party to the agreement (e.g., the contact person for a company represented by you), the legal basis is Article 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (balancing of interests based on our legitimate interest in using the contact details of another contracting party’s contact person for contract-related communication with the other contracting party).
The data collected for this purpose will be processed for the term of the agreement and, if necessary, thereafter in accordance with legal storage periods.
