General information on data processing

General information on data processing

Scope of processing of personal data

We only process our users' personal data to the extent necessary to provide services, content and a functional website. As a rule, personal data are only processed after the user gives their consent. An exception applies in those cases where it is impractical to obtain the user's prior consent and the processing of such data is permitted by law.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Art. 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) forms the legal basis for us to obtain the consent of a data subject for their personal data to be processed.
When processing personal data required for the performance of a contract in which the contractual party is the data subject, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR forms the legal basis. This also applies if data has to be processed in order to carry out pre-contractual activities.
Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR forms the legal basis if personal data has to be processed in order to fulfil a legal obligation on the part of our organisation.
Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR forms the legal basis in the case that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make the processing of personal data necessary.
If data processing is necessary in order to protect the legitimate interests of our organisation or of a third party and if the interests, basic rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the interests mentioned above, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR forms the legal basis for such data processing.

Deletion of data and storage period

The personal data of the data subject are deleted or blocked as soon as the reason for storing them ceases to exist. Storage beyond this time period may occur if provided for by European or national legislators in directives under Union legislation, laws or other regulations to which the data controller is subject. Such data are also blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by one of the above-named rules expires, unless further storage of the data is necessary for entering into or performing a contract.

Log files

Provision of the website and generation of log files

Description and scope of data processing

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the user's computer system.
In this context, the following data are collected:

  • Address (URL) of the website from which the file was requested
  • Name of the retrieved file
  • Date and time of the request
  • Data volume transmitted
  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • Description of the type of web browser and/or operating system used
  • Anonymised IP address of the requesting computer

The data stored are required exclusively for technical or statistical purposes; no comparison with other data or disclosure to third parties occurs, not even in part. The data are stored in our system's log files. This is not the case for the user's IP addresses or other data that make it possible to assign the data to a specific user: before data are stored, each dataset is anonymised by changing the IP address. These data are not stored together with other personal data .

Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and logfiles is §§ 14, 15 TMG, § 100 Abs. 1 TKG and Art. 4 BayDSG following the tasks of Art. 11 BayEGovG and Art. 7 and 34 BayHO

Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary in order to deliver the website to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The storage of such data in log files takes place in order to ensure the website's functionality. These data also serve to help us optimise the website and ensure that our IT systems are secure. They are not evaluated for marketing purposes in this respect.

Storage period

Data are deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary for fulfilling the purpose for which they were collected. If data have been collected for the purpose of providing the website, they are deleted at the end of the respective session.
If data are stored in log files, they are deleted at the latest after seven days. A longer storage period is possible. In this case, the users' IP addresses are deleted or masked so that they can no longer be assigned to the client accessing the website.

Options for filing an objection or requesting removal

The collection of data for the purpose of providing the website and the storage of such data in log files is essential to the website's operation. As a consequence, the user has no possibility to object.
