Some useful definitions
In general, data about users can be divided into two categories:
Anonymous data are information which do not enable identification of a user or enable it only with enormously great technical work. Such application is so great that it is not possible for most web-site operators – including us – to identify a visitor through these anonymous data.
Some anonymous data are collected in a log file: the point of time at which a page or a resource is requested, a status code, which states the successful transfer or any error, the most recently visited web site, through which a user has reached the current site (so-called referrer string) and the type of the web browser used (so-called user agent).
The data from the log file help us in discovering and eliminating errors on our web site.
Personal data are information, through which a user can be identified.
We store personal data which you enter in our questionnaire. We do not pass on personal data to third persons. In particular, we shall only use your e-mail address to answer you if necessary. We do not send spam e-mails. The IP address of the computer which has requested a file from our web offer is shown in the log file. The IP addresses are regarded as personal data although appreciable technical work is necessary for the identification of users. This work is not within our technical means.
