§ 1 General information

1.    Personal data are individual details about your personal or factual circumstances, i.e. data which identify you or which can be used to establish your identity. This includes, for example, your real name, address, telephone number or date of birth. Personal data also includes personal data, i.e. data without direct reference from which, however, a person can be derived, such as the IP address.

2.    Data relating to the person includes data that is collected in connection with the retrieval of www.eurailpress-archiv.de by your client (browser) and stored in so-called log files on the servers of DVV Media as well as the technical service providers.

3.    We collect data on each access to the server on which the service is located (so-called server log files) on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation and security of our services) within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

4.    These are the name of the requested website, file, your IP number, date and time, browser type and the requesting provider.

5.    Log file information is stored for a maximum period of seven days for security reasons (e.g. to clarify abuse or fraud) and then deleted. Data, the further storage of which is necessary for evidence purposes, are excluded from deletion until the respective incident has been finally clarified.

6.    When you visit the pages of DVV Media, personal data is also processed automatically in an anonymised form. This includes usage data such as the beginning and end of your visit, the pages you have visited or the time you spent on the portal. A personal utilization of these data does not take place.

7.    DVV Media collects, processes or uses personal data only in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations. This means that the data of the users will only be processed if there is a legal permission. This means, in particular, if data processing is necessary or legally required for the provision of our contractual services and online services, if the user has given his consent, or if it is based on our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation and security of our services within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR, in particular in measuring the range, creating profiles for advertising and marketing purposes and collecting access data and using the services of third parties).

8.    We would like to point out that the legal basis for the consents is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and Art. 7 GDPR, the legal basis for the processing for the fulfilment of our services and the implementation of contractual measures is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, the legal basis for the processing for the fulfilment of our legal obligations is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR and the legal basis for the processing to safeguard our legitimate interests is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

 

§ 2 Security measures

We take organisational and technical security measures in accordance with the state of the art to ensure that the regulations of the data protection laws are complied with and to protect the data processed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorised persons.

 

§ 3 Disclosure of data to third parties and third-party providers

1.    A passing on of data to third parties takes place only in the context of the legal defaults.

This applies to internal and external service providers for contract execution and order processing.

3.    if content, tools or other means are used by other providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") within the scope of this data protection declaration and their registered office is located in a third country, it is to be assumed that a data transfer to the registered office states of the third-party providers takes place. Third countries are countries in which the GDPR is not a directly applicable law, i.e. in principle countries outside the EU or the European Economic Area. The transfer of data to third countries takes place either if an appropriate level of data protection, user consent or legal permission has been obtained.
