definitions
Our data protection declaration should be simple and understandable for everyone. In this data protection declaration, the official terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) are generally used. The official definitions are explained in Art. 4 GDPR.

Accessing and storing information in terminal equipment
By using our website, information (e.g. IP address) can be accessed or information (e.g. cookies) stored in your end devices. This access or storage may involve further processing of personal data within the meaning of the GDPR. In cases where such access to information or such storage of information is absolutely necessary for the technically error-free provision of our services, this is done on the basis of Section 25 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1, Paragraph 2 No. 2 TTDSG. In cases in which such a process serves other purposes (e.g. the needs-based design of our website), this takes place on the basis of Section 25 (1) TTDSG only with your consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. The consent can be revoked at any time for the future. Further information on the processing of your personal data and the relevant legal bases in this context can be found in the following sections on the specific processing activities on our website.

Web hosting
This website is hosted by an external service provider (Scaleway). This website is hosted in the Netherlands. Personal data collected on this website is stored on the host's servers. This can be v. a. are IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, website access and other data generated via a website. We have concluded an order processing contract with the provider in accordance with the requirements of Art. 28 GDPR, in which we oblige them to protect our customers' data and not to pass it on to third parties.

server log files
When you visit our website, it is technically necessary for data to be transmitted to our web server via your internet browser. The following data is recorded during an ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • access status
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • (Full) IP address of the requesting computer
  • Amount of data transferred

We collect the listed data in order to ensure a smooth connection to the website and to enable users to use our website comfortably. The log file is also used to evaluate system security and stability as well as for administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data or the log files is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

For reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attempts to attack our web server, we store this data for a short time. Based on this data, it is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons. After 30 days at the latest, the data is anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user.

The data may also be processed anonymously for statistical purposes. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user, a comparison with other databases or a transfer to third parties does not take place at any time.

 

KeyCDN
Our website uses the services of KeyCDN (proinity GmbH, Färberstrasse 9, 8832 Wollerau, Switzerland), a so-called content delivery network. A content delivery network is a service that is used for the rapid provision and transmission of large amounts of data through a network of regionally distributed and interconnected servers. We use KeyCDN to improve the global availability and performance of our website and to improve our IT security. This is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para.1 lit. f GDPR), on the basis of which we process your personal data. KeyCDN generally only forwards data that is controlled by website operators. The content is therefore not determined by KeyCDN, but always by the website operator himself. In addition, KeyCDN may collect certain information about the use of our website and process data that we send or for which KeyCDN has received corresponding instructions. In addition, KeyCDN receives information from you such as your IP address, DNS log data and performance data for websites that are derived from browser activity, as well as other technical information such as the corresponding URL, referrer, user agent or similar, which personal data may contain. Your IP address is always anonymized in the log data provided by KeyCDN to its customers. If your data processed by KeyCDN is deleted, copies of it may remain in KeyCDN's backups. These backups or copies are periodically deleted. When using KeyCDN, data is transferred to Switzerland. According to a decision by the EU Commission, an appropriate level of data protection can be assumed in Switzerland (Art. 45 Para. 1, Para. 3 GDPR). We have concluded an order processing contract with KeyCDN. You can find more detailed information on the subject of data protection and KeyCDN at: https://www.keycdn.com/gdpr as well as under: https://www.keycdn.com/privacy
