When processing personal data that is necessary for fulfilling a contract to which the data subject is a party, art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for performing pre-contractual measures.

6. Web analysis using etracker

6.1. Description and scope of data processing

We use the cookie-free analysis variant of etracker (etracker GmbH, Erste Brunnenstraße 1, 20459 Hamburg) on our website to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. The software uses website data from web servers, which is transferred by default with every single page view. No information is read from the memory of the user's terminal device and no information is stored on this terminal device. The pseudonymous information makes it possible to link individual page views to related sessions. In a linking process using a time stamp, it is excluded that page views beyond a 24-hour time window can be linked. The following data is processed when you access the page:

  • The shortened IP address
  • Information regarding the end device, operating system and browser used
  • Geo-information up to city level only
  • The URL called up with the corresponding page title and optional information on the page content
  • The website from which the accessed individual page was reached (referrer site)
  • The subsequent pages called up from the accessed website within a single website
  • How long a user stays on the website
  • Other interactions (clicks) on the website, such as search terms entered or videos viewed

etracker does not use the data in any other way, e.g. by combining it with other data or passing it on to third parties.

These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. The anonymisation of the IP address takes into account the interest of website visitors in protecting their personal data.

6.4 Duration of storage

The IP address is anonymised directly. The pseudonymised recognition of the user by an assigned hash value is deleted after a maximum of 24 hours. The resulting analysis results are only used further in aggregated form.
