Automatic Data Retention
Every time you visit a website nowadays, certain information is automatically created and stored, just as it happens on this website. This data should be collected as sparingly as possible, and only with good reason. By website, we mean the entirety of all websites on your domain, i.e. everything from the homepage to the very last subpage (like this one here). By domain we mean example.uk or examplepage.com.Even while you are currently visiting our website, our web server – this is the computer this website is stored on, usually automatically retains data such as the below – for reasons such as operational security or for creating access statistics etc.the full address (URL) of the accessed website (e. g. https://www.examplepage.uk/examplesubpage.html/)browser and browser version (e.g. Chrome 87)the operating system used (e.g. Windows 10)the address (URL) of the previously visited site (referrer URL) (z. B. https://www.examplepage.uk/icamefromhere.html/)the host name and the IP-address of the device the website is accessed from (e.g. COMPUTERNAME and 188.8.131.52)date and timein so-called web server log files.As an illustration:Generally, these files are stored for two weeks and are then automatically deleted. We do not pass these data to others, but we cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be looked at by the authorities in case of illegal conduct.In short: your visit is logged by our provider (company that runs our website on servers), but we do not pass on your data!
