This data protection declaration informs users about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider Internetactive GmbH, Willemerstrasse 4, 63067 Offenbach on this website (hereinafter referred to as “offer”).
The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
Access data/ Server log files
The provider (or its web space provider) collects data on every access to the offer (so-called server log files). Access data includes:
Name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use due to concrete indications.
When contacting the provider (for example via contact form or e-mail), the user’s details are stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
Comments and contributions
When users leave comments on the blog or other contributions, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the security of the provider in case someone writes illegal content in comments and posts (insults, forbidden political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider itself can be prosecuted for the comment or post and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.
Integration of third-party services and content
It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, are integrated within this online offer. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is thus required for the display of this content. We endeavour to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as this is known to us, we inform the users about it.
Image rights from Getty Images, Flaticon, Freepik etc.
Within this offer, the images of the stock image provider Getty Images, Flaticon, Freepik can be integrated. The images are recognisable by a frame with the words “Getty Images”. The display of these images requires that Getty Images perceive the IP address of the users so that the images can be delivered to the users’ browser. The IP address is thus required for the display of this content. According to current knowledge, the IP address is only used for this purpose. However, the provider has no influence if Getty Images stores the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. If the provider is aware of this, the users will be informed or the images removed.
