B. Detailed Information on the Processing of Personal Data:

1. Processing of Personal Data When Accessing Our Website:

a. Objective of Data Processing:

Each time our website is accessed, so-called access data is collected and stored in a log file.

Such access data include:

  • Name (URL) of the website accessed and the website accessed previously
  • date and time of access
  • Name and URL of the accessed file
  • the amount of data transferred and report on successful access
  • browser type and version and the operating system of your device
  • requesting provider and the IP address of your device.

The IP address and other access data are processed by and for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a proper website connection
  • Ensuring a user-friendly experience on our website
  • Evaluation of system security and stability

It is necessary for the system to temporarily store the IP address and other access data in order to enable the website to be delivered to the terminal device used by you. For this purpose, it is unavoidable to store the IP address for the duration of the session. Additionally, the IP address is used to secure our systems (e.g. in the event of an attack or security incident). No personal reference can be established for us from the access data, including the IP address, in the event that our website is visited.

b. Duration of Storage:

As part of the log files, your IP address will be stored for a period of 7 days on the server of our host provider: ALL-INKL.COM – Neue Medien Münnich, Owner: René Münnich, Hauptstraße 68 | D-02742 Friedersdorf, with whom we have concluded an order processing agreement, after which it will be deleted. No data will be transferred to a non-European third country.

c. Legal Basis:

Processing your IP address and other access data when you access our website is neither legally nor contractually required. However, the processing of your IP address is technically necessary for the services we provide on our website in order for us to be able to provide you with these offers and for our website to remain functional. The legal basis for the processing of your IP address and access data is therefore Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR.

d. Possibility of Objection and Removal:

By not accessing our website, you can object to the processing of your personal data and, as described in section C. Data Subject Rights, request the deletion of the collected data by sending an informal letter to us if the conditions are given.

b. Duration of Storage

All data will be deleted if it is no longer required for the processing and handling of your request, either because your request has been dealt with or because your request has been clarified and there are no contractual or tax retention periods to the contrary. Retention periods are 5 years for personal data subject to § 147 of the German Fiscal Code (Abgabenordnung) and 10 years for data subject to § 257 of the German Commercial Code (HGB). Retention periods begin at the end of the calendar year in which the data was collected.
