Personal data handling

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more factors specific to that person.

Every time a user accesses a plonk GmbH page and every time a file is retrieved, data about this process is stored in a log file. Depending on the access protocol used, the protocol data record contains information with the following contents:

  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Name of the requested file
  • Date and time of the request
  • Access methods/functions requested by the requesting computer
  • access status of the web server
  • the URL from which the file was requested
  • operating system and browser type or settings.

No usage profiles are created in which IP addresses and personal data are linked. Anything to the contrary shall only apply insofar as this is presented separately in this data protection declaration.

The stored data is used exclusively for the purposes of the technical provision of the content, for the identification and tracking of unauthorised access attempts/accesses to the web server and for statistical evaluations such as visitor numbers and page popularity. The evaluation is only carried out by authorised employees of plonk GmbH.
