3. Processing of data on our web site

We strive to keep this website as simple as possible and to reduce the use of personal data to a minimum. All technical solutions are measured by this goal. When using the website, we therefore only process personal data if we inform so in this privacy policy. ‘Personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable person (for example, your name, your address, your phone number, your ID card number, etc.).

Processing of data when accessing this web site

When you visit our web page you transmit (for technical reasons) via your internet browser certain data to our web server. We or our hosting provider collect some of this data on each access to this website and store it in so-called server log files. This information includes:

    •    Name of the visited website

    •    Date and time of the visit

    •    Amount of data transferred

    •    Information of successful retrieval

    •    Browser type and version

    •    Operating system of the user

    •    Referrer URL (the previously visited page)

    •    IP address and

    •    the requesting internet service provider (ISP).

Not all of this data is personal. In fact, only the IP address is considered personal data. The abbreviation IP stands for internet protocol. The IP address is a numerical label assigned to each device connected to a computer network. This allows the location of the device within the network. This is a basic requirement for our computers to “talk” to each other and exchange information. Or to put it in other words, the IP address is to some extent comparable to a phone number and this website cannot be used without providing your IP address. 

Your IP-Adresse is stored anonymously. The remaining information of the log file is not related to personal data. Hence, it is not possible to identify the user or to create user profiles.

We process the data to provide and optimize this website, for security measures (for example, to investigate and prevent abuse or fraud) and for statistical purposes.

The data is processed automatically. Without prejudice to mandatory regulations, we store the log files for a maximum of seven (7) days and we then delete them. Data whose retention is necessary for evidence (for example, in the event of misuse or fraud), may not be deleted until the incident has been clarified.

The legal basis for processing of this data is our legitimate interest, which results from its purpose.

  • Contact details (address, phone, fax, cell phone, email and company, department, professional titel, position, as the case may be)
  • Contents (text, attachments, photos, videos or other contents relating to the subject of your inquiry)

We process this data only to the extent necessary for the purposes mentioned below.

If you contact us via this website by using one of the contact forms provided, we process the data that you fill in and which is at least the data marked as mandatory.

We retain the data only as long as it is necessary for processing. Thereafter, the data will be deleted without prejudice to mandatory legal blocking or retention periods. Usually, this is the case after completing and answering your request. We keep unaccepted quotations for at least six months; enquires for commissioning our services for at least three years. We check at the end of each calendar year the data to be deleted. In case you commission our services our privacy policy to retain our law firm applies.
