1.1. Processing of personal data and its purpose
asknet AG (hereinafter referred to as „asknet AG“ or „we“) processes users‘ personal data only to the extent necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. When visiting our website, the following data is processed:
Processing and temporary saving of the IP address is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. Therefore, the user‘s IP address must be saved for the duration of the session. The log files contain the IP addresses or other data that makes it possible to identify the user. The data is saved in the log files to ensure the functionality of the websites. The data also serves to optimise our websites, to ensure the security of our information technology systems and to detect and analyse attempts of fraud or attacks.
1.2. Legal bases for processing personal data
Our users' personal data is processed regularly with the user's consent. An exception is constituted in cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and we are permitted to process the data by legal regulations. Data and log files are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR.
1.3. Deletion of data and storage period
The personal data of the person in question is deleted or blocked by us as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. In case of data processing for the provision of the websites, the deletion takes place once the respective session has ended. In case of storage of personal data in log files, the deletion takes place after 30 days. Extended storage is possible if the users‘ IP addresses are deleted or altered beforehand so it is no longer possible to allocate them to the accessing client.
The purpose of cookies is to allow for the user-friendly design of our websites. Processing personal data using cookies is done based on Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR. Cookies are stored on the user‘s computer and are transmitted to our websites from there. The users can disable or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings on their internet browser. Already stored cookies can be deleted at any time. If cookies are disabled, it is possible that not all functions of our websites can be used to their full extent.
