8. Will access data be collected when using our website?
Our web host / service provider collects data concerning every case of access to our server (tracking for the creation of log files), as is standard practice in connection with internet security and for statistical purposes on the basis of the hostís, or of our, authorized interests (in accordance with Art. 6, para. 1, lit. f of the GDPR). Access data includes the file name of the accessed web page, the device type, the userís operating system, the browser type and version, the date and time of access, [transmitted data volume, notification of successful access,] and the anonymized IP address. For security reasons and error tracking, log files are stored for up to 21 days and then deleted. [The only other case in which access data would possibly be used might be in the case of a security incident (e.g. an attack on a web page, in order to preserve evidence)].
No cookies will be enabled on your computer by using this website, nor will any spyware be used,and we do not trace You in the internet. We also do not create any personal profiles.
Since our website only contains information pages, and no purchasing or payment pages, the text pages have not heretofore required HTTPS encryption. This would effectively make the pages slower to load. Also, HTTPS pages are often incompatible with certain older browsers. However, we have recently introduced contact forms with HTTPS security, and we are considering offering further pages with HTTPS security in the future.
