4. General Information on Data Protection

Data processing during site visits
When you open a website, a variety of data – including personal data – are automatically sent over the internet. This is necessary from a technical standpoint to ensure that the page opens and to optimize the result.
Whenever you open a website, open an image from a server, load external plugins (or scripts), stream a video, or make use of any other options for data transmission, your computer sends data to the server with which it is communicating. When you open a website, your browser (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge, Opera, Safari) automatically provides information on your system. These data include, for example:

  • website from which the website or file (image, script, video) is being accessed, or in which the file is integrated (referrer).
  • operating system
  • screen resolution
  • keyboard layout (language)
  • IP address from which the website or file is being accessed
  • name of the website or file accessed
  • time stamp (date and time) of access
  • browser name and version
  • transmitted data volume
  • access status (data transmitted, error code

These data are retained by the server. This retention takes place for example to

  • protect and monitor IT security (e.g. the detection of hacker attacks) and IT functioning
  • allow for statistical analysis (on the usage of websites)
  • improve the website
  • adapt the version of the website in order to optimise it for display on your device

Security protocols do not use pseudo-anonymous or anonymous data, as that would make it difficult to identify potential attackers. In general, data analysed for other purposes is anonymous and will not be used to create a profile. Further information can be found in this data protection policy.

Affected Persons

An ‘affected person’ (also referred to as ‘affected’), is a person whose personal data has been collected and processed. In the following, the ‘affected person’ will also be referred to as the ‘website visitor’ or ‘user’.

Information on the rights of affected persons

Every affected person can make use of certain rights (user rights) in relation to the responsible party. This can take the form of email, post, or a pre-prepared form. Telephone inquiries are also possible. However, telephone inquiries will only be accepted and not answered on the phone. The responsible party will choose a medium (post, email, other media) and send a response to the affected person regarding his or her query. Answers to inquiries concerning the rights of affected persons will be answered free of charge. In case of excessive exercise of these user rights, fees may apply. Answers will be issued within the legal limit of one month. In certain exceptional cases, this limit can be extended (e.g. Due to a large number of inquiries or an extremely complex inquiry). Such an extension must be justified. The rights of affected persons are listed in the following. For the sake of clarity, we have filed the various user rights under the given headings.
After each item, you will find a link to comprehensive information (on sites provided by HUBIT-Datenschutz).
