1.3 Data deletion and storage period
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage no longer applies.
In addition, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which H&S Deutschland GmbH is subject.
Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.
2. provision of the website and creation of log files
Each time the web pages of H&S Deutschland GmbH are called up, the system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.
As a rule, the following data is collected:
- Information about the browser type and the version used.
- The operating system of the user
- The Internet service provider of the user
- The IP address of the user
- Date and time of access
The log files contain IP addresses or other data that allow an assignment to the user.
This data is also stored in the log files of the system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user's computer.
For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the websites.
In addition, the data is used to optimize the H&S Deutschland GmbH website and to ensure the security of the systems.
The data is not used for advertising, customer consulting or market research purposes.
The storage of the data and the log files is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
We use the setting "Do not create log files". In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the websites, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest.
Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
The collection of data for the provision of the web pages and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for the user to object.
The web pages of H&S Deutschland GmbH use so-called session cookies.
Cookies are stored on the user's computer and transmitted by it to the web pages of H&S Deutschland GmbH.
