Your personal information

Our information and communication services can be used anonymously.

In principle, we process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website, as well as our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only with the consent of the user. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for reasons of fact and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6  para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as legal basis.

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is deleted. In addition, such storage may be provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject.

Usage data

Each time you access the www.stark-am-strom.de website, data is recorded in a log file.

The following data is collected here:

  • the page from which the file was requested
  • the name of the file,
  • the date and time of the query,
  • the transferred amount of data,
  • the access status (file transfer, file not found etc.),

The personal data "IP address" is not stored in the sense of data economy.

The access logs on the web servers are stored for 7 days to track and analyze unwanted extraneous effects on the websites or servers (denial of service attacks, flood of unwanted search engines, break-in / compromise attempts, etc.). In addition, the data is used to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Art. 6, para. 1 lit.f,  DSGVO.

The data will be deleted after 7 days, because the log files are no longer necessary for the purpose of their collection.

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. There is consequently no contradiction on the part of the user.

Persistent cookies are permanently available, even after a browser or system restart. These cookies support the presentation and control of the web pages as you "surf" on our portal. You can set your browser to inform you about cookies. So the use of cookies becomes transparent for you. In addition, you can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Article 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to facilitate the use of websites for users. Some features of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. For these, it is necessary that the browser is recognized even after a page break.

Cookies are stored on the computer of the user and transmitted by this on our side. Therefore, as a user, you have full control over the use of cookies.

Analysis of visitor data (Matomo) without cookies

The website www.stark-am-strom.de uses externer Link:  Matomo, an open-source software for the statistical evaluation of visitor access. This helps to adapt the web offers to your needs. The information generated by the call about your use of our website is stored and analyzed by Matomo.

The software is set in a way that the IP addresses are not completely stored and 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (Ex .: 123.456.789.xxx). In this way, an assignment of the shortened IP address to the calling computer is no longer possible. This will leave you completely anonymous.

The software runs exclusively on our systems. A storage of the data takes place only there. A transfer of the data to third parties does not take place. We do not create usage profiles.

The legal basis for processing users' personal data is Article 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

The processing of the anonymous user data allows us to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. By analyzing the data obtained, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its user-friendliness. For these purposes, our legitimate interest lies in the processing of the data according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The anonymization of the IP address sufficiently takes into account the interest of users in their protection of personal data.

The data will be deleted after 180 days.
