Data Protection

Handling of your data

You are principally able to use our website without submitting personal data. If personal data are assessed on our website, they are always submitted on a voluntary basis. The respective data will not be transmitted to third parties unless you have given your consent.

Each time this website is accessed and used, data and information are assessed and stored in server log files. The following data can be assessed:

  • IP address
  • Information concerning the type and version of the browser
  • date and time of access
  • Internet service provider of user
  • operating system of user
  • websites from which the user’s system accesses our site
  • websites that are accessed by the user’s system via our website

Legally, the temporary storage of data and log files is based on points a and f, article 6(1), GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). Temporary storage of IP addresses is necessary for delivery of the website to the user’s device. The user’s IP address needs to be stored for the duration of a session. To assure functionality of the website, data are stored in log files also to optimise contents and assure safety of our information technological systems. Data are deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for the purpose of assessment. In the case of assessing data for the provision of this website, this means that data will be deleted after a session has ended. Data that are stored in log files will be deleted after a maximum period of seven days. It is possible to store data beyond this period, but in these cases the user’s IP address will be extinguished or made unrecognisable. The data can thus no longer be used to identify the accessing client.

  • It is also possible to compile a user profile from the information you have accessed via the IDeA website, to offer customised information.

No personal data will be transferred to states outside the European Economic Area.
