4. Lawful basis for data processing and handling of your data

DIPF will use the data assessed via this website to deliver the services offered, and users will thus be able to avail themselves of these services.

Legally, the partly temporary storage of data and log files is based on points a and f, article 6(1), GDPR. Personal data which we acquire for the purpose of delivering particular services are only assessed after you have given your consent to the assessment, storage and processing of these data according to the terms of use and pursuant to point a, article 6 (1), GDPR.

Personal data assessed by this website will not be transmitted to any third party if you have not given your consent to such a measure.

5. Collected 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

6. Duration of storage

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.

7. Security advice

Please note that the transmission of data via internet (e.g. communication via e-mail) might be vulnerable to security flaws. It is impossible to assure that data will not be accessed by third parties. Hereby, we strictly object to the usage of contact data published in the compulsory imprint by third parties, for the purpose of transmitting unrequested advertisements and information materials. The providers of this website reserve their right to prosecute, in the case of receiving unrequested advertisement, for instance via spam mails.
