Collecting and processing data

Visiting the webpages, using a smartphone app

You can visit Spritmonitor.de webpages without providing any information about yourself. Whenever our internet pages are accessed or a smartphone app is synched, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The following data will be collected:
  • The IP address of the inquiring computer,
  • The date and time of access,
  • The name and URL of the accessed file,
  • The website from which the access is made,
  • The browser you are using and your computer’s operating system,
  • The name of your internet service provider.
The data will also be stored in our system’s log files. This data will not be stored together with other personal data of the user.
The IP address must be temporarily stored by the system so the webpage can be delivered to the user’s computer. To do so, the user’s IP address must remain stored during the entire session. It is stored in log files to ensure the webpage’s functionality. The data also help us optimise the webpage and ensure the security of our IT systems. In this context, the data will not be evaluated for marketing purposes.
The legal grounds for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
The data will be deleted when it is no longer needed to meet the goal for which it was collected. If the data was collected to provide the webpage, the data will be deleted when the session in question is over. If the data is stored in log files, it will be deleted after 30 days at the latest. Storage past that point is possible. In this case, the user’s IP address will be deleted or distorted so that it can no longer be allocated to the accessing client.
Data must be collected for the webpage to be provided, and it must be stored in log files for the internet site to be operated. Consequently, the user may not object to this.
