Access-data and server logfiles

KOREMA® (respectively the web hoster) will accumulate data about every access onto the website (or pages therein) in form of server log files. This data include:

  • name of the accessed web page
  • name of the accessed file (if any)
  • date and time of the access
  • amount of data transferred
  • status reports about the access (success, fail or other)
  • type and version of browser used
  • operating system and Version of the client used
  • referred URL (address of previously accessed webpage)
  • IP address and the provider used for the access

This data will solely be used for statistics. It will not be passed onto third parties. The statistics will be used to ensure proper operation, security and optimization of the website. KOREMA® will retain the right to analyze the data at a later date if there is a reason for the belief of incorrect, malicious or illegal usage of the website. Under normal circumstances these logfiles will be deleted after 90 days. The data is accumulated according to Article 6, I lit f EU-DPR.


Cookies

Cookies are small files which allow to store information on the client computer. This information is device oriented and is used to create a better usability but also to further identify the user (i.e. to enable auto-login). Also cookies can be used to further create statistics about the website usage. The statistics will also be used to enhance the usability, stability and accessibility of the service offered. These cookies will be gathered and used according to article 6, P1 lit f GDPDR. As a user you can control the cookie usage. Most browser software do have options which can be used to control the way cookies are stored or disabled. If you choose to disable or restrict cookie usage the website may not be displayed correctly or may not be accessible in the best way or not at all.

To be able to control the coookie usage used for online advertisments you can use the (US based) web page http://www.aboutads.info/choices or (EU based) http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.


Google Analytics

This web page uses Google Analytics. This is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. („Google“). Google Analytics does use „Cookies“, small files that will be stored on the client computer with information about the usage of the website. This information will be analysed. The processing usually is performed on servers operated by Google  and located in the USA. This precludes the transferral of the data in the USA. KOREMA® does use the so called IP anonymisation. In this case the IP address of the user will be transferred into countries of the EU (or associated contract states). The IP address will be anonymised (i.e. by truncation).
Only in very limited occasions the IP addressed will be transferred in full (also into USA). Google will analyse the transferred data on behalf of KOREMA® to create reports about the website usage and to perform additional services to the website owner.

Your IP address will not be referred or cross linked with other data Google may have about you. You can disable the cookie usage (see section cookies).
You can disable the storing, transferral or processing of your data by Google by downloading a plug-in for your browser. This will disable Gooogle Analytics if you use the browser on which you installed the plug-in.

The plug-in can be found here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
As an alternative for the plug-in you can use this address to set a specific "opt-out" cookie. Google analytics will check for the presence of this cookie and, if found, will not transfer the data. if you disabled cookies or deleted this cookie you will need to revisit that address.


Facebook Social Plugin

This website does use social plugins ("plugins") from facebook.com. This service is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Irland ("Facebook").

You can identify this plugin by the means of the Facebook logo (white "f" on a blue square, the words "Like", "Gefällt mir" or a "thumbs-up"

symbol). For an up-to-date list of Facebook plugin appearances see the page https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins.

If you access a webpage with this plugin, the browser will initiate a connection to a Facebook server. This server will then transfer data onto your browser. KOREMA® cannot control the data transferred nor can it control that Facebook does have server logfiles about this access. To the best of KOREMA®'s knowlegde the following information is given:

Facebook will have information about the fact, that a specific IP-address uses this website. Also, if the user is logged into Facebook in parallel, Facebook will connect this data with the Facebook account of the user.

If the user further interacts with the plugin (i.e. by pressing "Like") this information will be transferred to Facebook and stored and processed there.

If the user is not a member of Facebook, only the IP address will be stored. Facebook announced that within Germany only anonymised IP addresses will be transferred and stored.

To inform yourself about the means and procedures about the information processing by Facebook and to know about ways to disable or limit that usage, please see the data privacy information provided by Facebook on https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

If the user is a Facebook member and does not want to have the information gathered and cross linked with his account, he or she must log out of Facebook before using this website.

Further data privacy information and control possibilites can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.


Usage of XING:

This website does use the „Share-Button“ from XING. By using this webpage your browser will initiate a connection to a server from XING AG, Gänsemarkt 43, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.

This ensures that the services provided by the share-function (i.e. display a counter) are functioning. There will be no gathering or storage of private data. Xing does not store IP addresses when accessing this plugin.

You can access the full information provided by XING on the page https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection.


Usage of LinkedIn:

This website does use a plugin from LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. You can identify this plugin by the logo or the wording "Recommend" or "Empfehlen".

By using this web page and clicking on the "recommend" button your browser will initiate a connection to a server from LinkedIn. LinkedIn will therefore know the IP address, date and time and other data and the fact that you accessed this webpage.

If you are logged in a LinkedIn account, LinkedIn will cross reference this information with your account.

For further information about the LinkedIn service and data privacy please see the page www.linkedin.com/static.

 

Revocation, change or renewal of private data

As a user you do have the right to receive information about the data that is stored about you (Article 15 I EU-DPR). This request is without cost (if you request not more than once a year). You also have the right to have incorrect information changed (Article 16 EU-DPR), deleted (or detained from further use), as long as no legal requirements exist otherwise (Article 17 I EU-DPR and Article 18).

If you think that the data privacy rules as shown here violate your rights you may contact the relevant data protection commissioner. For Germany that is “Der hessische Datenschutzbeauftrage des Landes” in Wiesbaden.
