This data protection declaration clarifies the user about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider [BERODE GmbH/BERODE Engineering GmbH, Apostelnstr. 1-3, 50667 Cologne, Germany, Tel.: +49 (0)221-277 389 0, E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org] on this website (hereinafter “Offer”).
The legal basis for data protection is found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
Access data/ server log files
The provider (respectively his webspace provider) collects data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files).
The access data includes:
Name of the website called up, file, date and time of the call, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited site), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete evidence.
Handling of personal data
Personal data is information with the help of which a person can be determined, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by somebody counts as personal data.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is legally permitted or if the users agree to the collection of data.
When contacting the provider (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), the user’s details are stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
Integration of third party services and content
It can happen that within this online offer third party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) are aware of the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address only to deliver the contents. However, we have no influence on this if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as this is known to us, we inform the users about it.
