Access data/server log files

BHG.INVEST GMBH, or its webhosting provider Hetzner Online GmbH, collects data about every time the website is accessed (so-called server log files). Access data include the following:

name of the accessed website, 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 site), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the operation, security and optimisation of the website. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete evidence.

Only the pseudonymised IP addresses of visitors to the website are stored. It is not possible to attribute personal data to an identified or identifiable natural person. The retention period for this data is two months.

• the processing is necessary to process a contract with you,
• the processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation,
• the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data.
The data shall be kept for two months.

Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

In general, you can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via the settings of your browser. Please use the help functions of your Internet browser to find out how to change these settings.
