4. General Data Security Information
Data processing when calling up websites
When a website is called up, a large amount of data - including personal data - is automatically transmitted via the Internet. From a technical point of view, this is necessary in order for the website call to function at all and also in order to be able to provide you with the best possible result.
For example, whenever you call up a web page, an image is retrieved from a server, an external plug-in (or script) is loaded or a video is streamed or one of the many other transmission options is used, data is sent from your computer to the server from which you retrieve it. When you access a website, your browser (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge, Opera, Safari) automatically sends certain information from your system. These data are for example:
- Website from which the website or a file (image, script, video) is called or in which the file is embedded (referer).
- Operating system
- Screen resolution
- Keyboard layout (language)
- IP address from which the website or file was accessed
- Name of the accessed web page or file
- Time stamp (date and time) of the request
- Name of the browser and its version
- Amount of data transferred
- Access status (file transferred, error code)
This data is logged by each server. The logging is done, for example, to
- maintaining and checking IT security (e.g. to detect hacker attacks) and IT operations
- statistical analysis (about the use of the website)
- improvement of the website
- adapted output of the website or files, so that they are (can be) displayed optimized on your end device
No pseudonymization or anonymization is used for security protocols, as this would make it impossible to draw conclusions about potential attackers. As a rule, the evaluation of data for other purposes is anonymized and no profiling is carried out. Further information can be found in the further course of this data protection declaration.
The "data subject", is the person whose personal data is collected and processed. In the following, the "Data Subject" is also referred to as the "Website Visitor" or "User".
Informationen on data subject rights
Every data subject can assert his or her rights (data subject rights) against the person responsible. This can be done as an email, by mail or a provided form. Telephone inquiries are also possible. However, telephone inquiries will only be accepted and will not be answered on the phone. The data controller selects the medium (mail, email, other media) and sends the data subject the response to his/her request via this medium. Responses to requests regarding the rights of data subjects are provided free of charge. In case of excessive exercise (e.g. strong accumulation) of the data subject rights, a fee may be charged. The response shall be given within the statutory period of one month. The deadline may be extended in exceptional cases (e.g. high number of requests or high complexity of the request). Reasons must be given for the extension of the deadline. The rights of data subjects are listed below. For the sake of clarity, we have noted the data subject rights in bullet point form. Behind each list you will find a link to detailed explanations (on the HUBIT data protection pages).
- Right of access
- Right of rectification
- Right of erasure
- Right to restriction of processing
- Right of data portability
- Right to withdraw consent
- Right to object
- Right to lodge a complaint
The data subject must authenticate him/herself to the data controller to ensure that he/she is legitimized to exercise the data subject rights.
On the HUBIT data security page, you will find a form that you can use to exercise your data subject rights with us: Data subject rights form
