6. What data are collected and how is it used and how long is it stored?

a) Provision of the website and creation of log files
With each visit to our website our system automatically captures data and information from the system of accessing computer.

The following data are collected for this:

(1) information about the type of browser and version being used
(2) the user’s operating system
(3) the user’s internet service provider
(4) the IP address of the user
(5) date and time of access
(6) websites via which the user’s system access our internet page
(7) websites to which the user’s system gains access via our internet page

The log files contain IP addresses or other data that could enable attribution to the user. This could be the case, for instance, if personal data is contained within the link to the website from which the user gains access to the internet page or the link to the website that the user visits via our internet page.

The data are also stored in the log files of our system. Storage of this data along with other personal data of the user does not take place.

Purpose of the data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

It is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serve to optimize the site and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An analysis of data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

Duration of storage
The data will be deleted when they are no longer necessary for the achievement of the purpose of their collection. In the case of the collection of data to allow access to the website, this is the case when that session is finished.

In the case of storage of the data in log files, this is the case no later than seven days. Storage for longer periods is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of users are anonymized so that attribution to the current client is no longer possible.

7. Is my usage behavior evaluated, e.g. for advertising, tracking or fraud prevention?

a) Use of Cookies
Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the internet browser or by the internet browser on the user’s computer system.

We also use cookies on our website which enable an analysis of the user’s online behavior. (see section 7b: web analysis by Matomo).

The user data collected in this way is anonymized with technical precautionary measures. Therefore, it is no longer possible to assign the data to the user. The data will not be stored together with same user’s other personal data.

b) Web analysis by Matomo (formerly PIWIK)
On our website we use the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) to analyze the online behavior of our users. The software places a cookie on the user’s computer (see above for cookies). If individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data are stored:

(1) two bytes of the IP address of the visiting user’s system
(2) the accessed website
(3) the URL of the website from which the user has accessed the current website
(4) the sub-pages accessed from the accessed website
(5) time spent on the website
(6) frequency of website access
(7) system information of the user

The software runs exclusively on a server in a German data center that is specially operated for data protection-compliant web analysis. The personal data of users is only stored there. The data processing is carried out by a third party selected and monitored by the person responsible in compliance with the statutory provisions by means of order data management.

The software is set so that the IP addresses are not completely stored, instead 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g..: This way, it is no longer possible to assign the shortened IP address to the accessing computer.

Purpose of data processing
The processing of users’ personal data enables us to analyze the website use of our users. We are in a position to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website by evaluating the data obtained. This helps us to continuously improve our website and its user-friendliness. For these purposes, it is also in our legitimate interest to process the data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. By anonymizing the IP address, the users’ interest in protecting their personal data is sufficiently taken into account.

Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for our recording purposes. In our case this is the case after termination of the service offered via the website (i.e. after the completion of the internet offer of the Medienführerschein Bayern).
