What is personal data?
The meaning of “personal data” is defined in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). According to the new regulation, personal data includes all information that refers to an identified or identifiable natural person. This can include for example, your rightful name, your address, your telephone number or your date of birth. Even information on how you can use this or other websites may contain personal data.
Providing the website
An access log through our webserver has been fully deactivated. But our system does use certain security plugins from WordPress which protect our website from attack and misuse. Normal, non-damaging website accesses are usually not logged by the plugins. However, as soon as there is the suspicion that our system is subject to an attack, data relating to the visitor’s computer system are automatically logged for forensic purposes and stored in firewall logs. The data stored includes the IP address, the data and time, the browser user agent and the reason for the suspicious activity.
Purpose of the processing
The capturing of logfiles serves to record averted or damaging website attacks, to secure forensic activities and to secure and stabilize our website.
The legal basis for this is Article 6.1(f) GDPR.
The purposes mentioned also include the legitimate interests in data processing within the meaning of Article 6.1(f) GDPR.
Data storage – duration
Data is deleted when it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was captured. As a rule, this is the case after one month at the latest.
If data is captured in the extent described, this has become necessary to secure and to operate the website. There is, therefore, no opportunity to raise objection.
Legal basis for collecting and processing personal data
As soon as we have your consent to process personal data, Article 6.1(a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing your personal data.
When processing your personal data to perform a contract between you and intersoft consulting services AG, Article 6.1(b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processes required to conduct pre-contractual activities.
When processing personal data to perform a legal obligation to which our companies is subject, Article 6.1(c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
Article 6.1(f) GDPR provides the legal basis for processing when the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party and where such interests are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject.
Data storage - duration
Your personal data will be deleted or the processing will be restricted as soon as the data has met the purpose for which it was stored. Storage of the data beyond this may be possible if this is stipulated by European or national legislators in EU directives, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. The data will be deleted or its processing will be restricted when a prescribed deadline expires, unless it is necessary to continue storing the data to conclude or perform a contract.
