Data processing when visiting websites

When visiting a website, data is being collected automatically – also personal data. This is necessary from a technical standpoint to make your website visit possible in the first place and offer you the best results.

Every time you visit a website, retrieve an image from a server, load an external script or plugin or stream a video, or use any other transmission possibility, your device transmits data to the server, from which you retrieve information. When opening a website, your browser (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge, Opera, Safari) automatically sends certain information from your system. These information are, e.g.:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address of website or file retrieved
  • Status of website access (data transmitted, error code)
  • Amount of data transmitted
  • Keyboard layout (language)
  • Screen resolution
  • Name of website or file retrieved

[To be adapted to the effective information collected]

The following data are being logged by every server. This is done for:

  • Adherence and review of IT-Security (e.g. identification of hacker attacks) and IT-Operation
  • Statistical Evaluation (on use of website)
  • Website Improvement
  • Providing a modified version of the website or files, for optimized display on your device

[To be adapted to the effective information collected]

Security Protocols do not work with pseudonymisation and anonymisation, as this would not allow any conclusions as to who potential attackers could be. Generally, the evaluation of data, is anonymised and no profiling takes place. More information can be found further below.
