Usage data is a user's personal data that is required to enable and bill the use of telemedia. This includes in particular features to identify the user, information about the beginning and end as well as the scope of the respective use and information about the telemedia used by the user.

i.e. processing
Processing is any process carried out with or without the help of automated procedures or any such series of processes in connection with personal data such as collecting, recording, organizing, organizing, storing, adapting or changing, reading out, querying, using, disclosure by transmission, distribution or any other form of making available, matching or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.

e. pseudonymization
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures that ensure that the personal data is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person;

f.Cookies
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer. Cookies always have a validity period that can be limited to the end of the user session (so-called session cookies) or can exist for a longer period of time (so-called permanent cookies). These permanent cookies remain on your computer and enable the provider or its partner companies (so-called third-party cookies) to recognize your computer on your next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and can decide individually whether to accept them or reject the setting of cookies for certain cases or in general. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of the website may be restricted.

2. Existence of appropriate guarantees

a. pseudonymization
Insofar as the provider collects usage data, he always saves this under pseudonyms (in the case of cookies, for example, using a unique session key). The provider does not merge pseudonymous data with data about the bearer of the pseudonym (such as inventory data).

b. Use of encryption technologies
When transferring data between your computer or mobile device and the provider's server, the provider uses the SSL security system (Secure Socket Layer).
This technology is intended to protect your data from being read by unauthorized third parties and offers a very high standard of security. You can tell that your data is being transmitted in encrypted form by the closed representation of a key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
