Automatically saved data
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information, which your browser automatically sends to us, in so-called server log files. This information includes:
- date and time of the request
- name of the requested file
- webpage or website from which the file was requested
- access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.)
- web browser and operating system used
- full IP address of the computer making the request
- volume of data transmitted
These data will not be merged with other data sources. The data are processed in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. We will briefly store these data for technical security reasons, in particular in order to thwart any attempted attacks on our web servers. We will not be able to trace anything back to individuals using these data. After a maximum of seven days, the data will be anonymised by shortening the IP address down to domain level so that it is no longer possible to establish a connection to the individual user. Once anonymised, the data will be processed for statistical purposes; no comparison with other data sets will be carried out and no data will be disclosed to third parties, not even extracts.

THE SOFTWARE SOLUTION MATOMO
We use the Matomo software from InnoCraft Ltd. https://matomo.org, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, to automatically collect and store data (IP address, time of the visit, device and browser information, and information on your use of our website) and to create usage profiles from that data using pseudonyms for the purpose of website analytics. Cookies may be used as part of that. The pseudonymised usage profiles are not combined with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym without explicit consent to that, which must be given separately. Data are processed by Matomo on our servers.
Friendly Captcha (protection against bots/spam)
Our website uses the service “Friendly Captcha” (www.friendlycaptcha.com).
This service is offered by Friendly Captcha GmbH, Am Anger 3-5, 82237 Wörthsee, Germany.
Friendly Captcha is an innovative, privacy-friendly protection solution to make it difficult for our website to be used by automated programs and scripts (termed “bots”).
We have integrated program code of Friendly Captcha on our website (for example for contact forms) so that the visitor’s terminal device can establish a connection to Friendly Captcha’s servers and receive an arithmetic task from Friendly Captcha. The visitor solves the arithmetic task on his or her terminal device using certain system resources and it sends the result to our web server. This makes contact with Friendly Captcha’s server via an interface and receives an answer as to whether the puzzle has been correctly solved on the terminal device. Depending on the result, we can add security rules to requests via our website and thus continue to process or reject the requests, for example.
The data are used solely to protect against spam and bots as described above.
No cookies are placed or read on the visitor’s terminal device by Friendly Captcha.
IP addresses are stored only in hashed form (a one-way encryption process) and do not allow us or Friendly Captcha to identify an individual.
If personal data are collected, they are erased after 30 days at the latest.
The legal basis for processing is our legitimate interests in protecting our website against misuse by bots and therefore against spam and attacks (such as flooding attacks) in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
You can find more information on data protection in relation to the use of Friendly Captcha at https://friendlycaptcha.com/legal/privacy-end-users/.
For embedding videos we use Vimeo among other providers. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, LLC, headquartered in 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011. We use plugins from the provider Vimeo on several of our web pages. If you bring up one of the pages on our website equipped with such a plugin – our media library, for example – a connection to the Vimeo servers will be established and the plugin will appear. In doing so, the Vimeo server will be informed which of our web pages you visited. If you are logged in as a user on Vimeo, Vimeo will assign this information to your personal user account. When using the plugin, for instance clicking a video’s start button, this information will likewise be assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your Vimeo user account before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies from Vimeo. You can find more information about data processing and notices on data protection by Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/privacy.
