Visiting our Website
As soon as you visit our website, the company we have entrusted with the website’s operation will store the public IP address of the computer you are using to visit our website. This includes the access date and time. The IP address is a unique numeric address, through which your computer sends and receives data via the internet. Usually, neither we nor our service provider will know whom the IP address belongs to, unless you provide us with any data permitting us to identify you while using our website. Also, a user can be identified if we take legal action (in cases of cyber-attacks on our website, for instance) and are informed of the user’s identity during the process of investigation. So as a general rule, you will not have to worry we will be able to draw a connection between you and your IP address.
Our service provider is using the IP address to enable you to visit and use our website, and to discover and prevent attacks on our websites. Unfortunately, websites are attacked frequently, in order to harm the operators and users (for example blocking the access, spying on data, distributing malware like viruses or other illegal purposes). Such attacks would adversely affect our website’s intended use as well as the security of our website’s visitors. The IP address, along with the visit’s time, is being processed to prevent such attacks and potential dangers resulting from them for ourselves and for our website’s users. Via our service provider we are pursuing the justified interests of maintaining our business operations as well as of preventing unlawful interference affecting ourselves or our website’s visitors. The legal basis of this processing activity is article 6 paragraph 1 f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The stored IP data will be deleted by de-personalization, provided they are no longer necessary for the purpose of identifying or preventing attacks.

If the customer account is created to serve the purpose of concluding or performing a contract, article 6, paragraph 1 b of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will be an additional legal basis of the processing activity. The data will be stored until the customer account is deleted. In cases in which we are obligated to store the data beyond this event (to fulfill accounting obligations, for instance), or if we are legally entitled to store the data beyond this event (in case of a current lawsuit against the user account owner, for instance), the data will be deleted as soon as the obligation or the legal authorization to store the data ceases to exist.
