II. Collection and storage of personal data and the purposes of use
As a matter of principle, we collect and process personal data of our users only to the extent that is necessary for the provision of a functional website, our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where it is not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.
1. Provision of the website and creation of log files
Our hosting provider (DomainFactory GmbH) automatically collects the following data each time our website is accessed and stores it in so-called log files:
(2) IP address of the user
(3) Request of the user (e.g. a certain page)
(4) Date and time of the request
(5) User agent (includes information about the user’s browser and operating system i.a.)
(6) Status code (the server’s response to the request)
The transmission and temporary storage of the IP address is necessary 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 log files are stored in order to be able to trace criminal IT attacks (e.g. DDoS attacks) or errors on the server and thus ensure the functionality of the website. The data is not combined with other personal data of the user and is not evaluated for marketing purposes.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest in the data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR lies in the aforementioned purposes.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. The data saved for technical reasons (provision of the website) will be deleted at the end of the session. The log files are automatically deleted after seven days. Though, they can be stored longer if it is necessary for the realization of the aforementioned purposes.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility to object it.
The legal basis for the use of these cookies is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
The statistical data is automatically deleted after 365 days.
Playing the videos embeded on this site therefore requires your prior consent to the use of third-party cookies, which may also be used for marketing purposes. The legal basis for the processing of the data is therefore Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
5. Contacting us by e-mail, telephone, fax or contact form
It is possible to contact us via our contact form, by e-mail, telephone or fax. When using the contact form, the personal data provided by you (as well as your IP address) will be stored. In the case of contact by e-mail, the user’s personal data transmitted with the e-mail will be stored. In the case of contact by telephone or fax, your telephone or fax number will be stored, as well as any other data you may have provided.
The sole purpose of processing this personal data is to handle your request. In the case of press inquiries, we also store and process your data for APM’s press work.
The data will be deleted as soon as the conversation has ended and it is clear that the matter has been resolved and further inquiries are not to expect.
The legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR if consent has been given (e.g. when contacting us via our contact form).
In all other cases, the legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest in the processing of the data lies in the above-mentioned purpose of processing your request and, if applicable, in the press work of the APM. If the contact is established wih the purpose of concluding a contract or a membership in the APM, the additional legal basis for the processing the corresponding data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR.
If the user contacts us via our contact form, e-mail, telephone or fax, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In this case, the conversation cannot be continued. The objection can be declared informally by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. All personal data stored will be deleted then.
III. Recipients or categories of recipients of personal data
Our service providers for the technical support of our server and website have access to the data.
