This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar information. This exclusively consists of information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.

This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is mandatory when using the internet. It is processed in particular for the following purposes:

The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. The only recipients of the data are the controller and, if applicable, the processor.

Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us in order to optimise our website and the technology on which it is based.

Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use “cookies“. Cookies are small text files that are transferred by a website server to your hard drive. This automatically gives us certain data, such as the IP address, the browser used, operating system and your connection to the internet.

Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or to transfer viruses to a computer. On the basis of the information contained in cookies, we can make your navigation simpler and enable the correct display of our web pages.

Under no circumstances will the data collected by us be disclosed to third parties or a link to your personal data be established without your consent.

Of course, you can generally view our website without cookies. Web browsers are generally set so that they accept cookies. You can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via the settings of your browser. Please use the help features of your internet browser to find out how you can change these settings. Please note, however, that certain functions of our website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.

SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data when it is transferred, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (such as SSL) via HTTPS.

Contact form

If you contact us by email or with our contact form with questions of any kind, you provide us with your voluntary consent for the purpose of establishing contact. In this respect, the provision of a valid email address is required. This serves the purpose of the allocation of the enquiry and its subsequent response. The provision of further data is optional. The information that you provide will be saved for the purposes of processing your enquiry and for possible subsequent questions. Once the enquiry you made has been resolved, your personal data will be automatically erased.

Google Analytics

If you have given your consent, Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”) is used on this website. The use includes the “Universal Analytics” operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze a user’s activities across devices. This data protection notice is provided by www.intersoft-consulting.de.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users interact with the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visit https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or https://policies.google.com/?hl=en.
