Each time you access our website and retrieve a file, the following information is stored automatically:
- The user's IP address
- The user's internet service provider
- Date and time of access
- The accessed page of our website offer/name of the retrieved file
- The websites from which the user's system accesses our website
- The websites accessed by the user's system via our website
- The amount of data transferred
- Notification whether access/retrieval was successful
- The browser and operating system utilised
- The session ID used
The log files contain IP addresses or other data that allows for the identification of a user. The data is also stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal user data. The storage is temporary, that is, it lasts for a maximum of 3 days, unless for safety reasons a longer storage is required.
This information is processed for backup purposes. The BA pursues legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 lit. f of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as this is the only way to ensure the availability and integrity of the portal. There are no other categories of data recipients than the employees who manage the BA's portal.
When using the website, so-called session cookies are used. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the local cache of the website's browser. These cookies serve the purpose of supporting the use of the portal in the course of the respective "session," and are deleted after the end of the use. Additionally, cookies are used for a statistical visitor evaluation of the website and to ensure a user-friendly design of the platform. Cookies allow the recognition of the browser during later visits to the website. The lifespan of the cookies we use is limited to 30 days. The cookies do not store any personal data or IP-addresses.
There are videos from YouTube included on this website. This always assumes that YouTube perceives the IP address of the visiting users, as it cannot send the video content without the IP address to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this video content. Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of YouTube under https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/.
The BA uses the web analysis software Piwik pro, as well as Netmind, for the statistical visitor evaluation of the website (tracking). This evaluates visitor behaviour on the platform anonymously. It is not possible to determine the identity of the "users" and "participants". The information serves to further develop and improve the platform.
