In connection with the use of our range of online services, we collect data on our server for backup purposes. This information might allow individual users to be identified. Every time a user opens a page, data regarding the process is saved in the webserver‘s logfile. These logfiles contain information your browser transmits to us including:
1. Browser type/version
2. Operating system used
3. URL accessed
4. Files accessed/ amount of data downloaded
5. Host name of computer accessing website (IP address)
6. Date and time of server access
These data are not assessed to identify users. They are rendered anonymous and stripped of any personal data provided, saved in logfiles and used only for statistical purposes. We reserve the right to analyze anonymous databanks. No individual user profiles are created, not even using pseudonymous data. Under no circumstances do we pass stored data on to third parties. All data is immediately deleted after the logfiles have been evaluated.
Personal information is information that could be used to identify you as a user. This includes information like names, addresses and telephone numbers. As a rule, you can use our range of online services without revealing your identity. If you request written informational materials, we will ask you for personal information. Whether you provide this information is entirely up to you. Until we have completed your request, we store any data you have provided on a server located on our premises. Access to this server is limited to just a few authorized individuals involved in technical, commercial or editorial server support. After your request has been completed (such as sending any informational materials you have requested) your data is immediately deleted. Only if you expressly ask to be added to our press and information mailing list will we store your data long-term on a computer in the Communication and Media Department where it can only be accessed by the people employed there.
Sharing personal information with third parties
At BCCN Heidelberg/Mannheim we only use your personal information from requests or orders for informational materials internally. We do not provide any information to third parties.
