Server Data

On each call of a page of our web services access data will be stored on the server of our webhosting provider (STRATO AG), the so called webserver log. The per each call of a page generated and on the server stored data includes among other things the following information:

          • hostname or IP address of the user (anonymized),
          • date and time of visit,
          • content that was requested by the user during the visit,
          • the website that has led the user to our web services (referrer URL),
          • the operating system on users device,
          • type and version of the used internet browser.

The Optikron GmbH uses the webserver log information exclusively for statistical purposes in order to ensure and improve the functionality and the security of our web services. Nevertheless we reserve ourselves to use the webserver log information afterwards for examination purposes if based on concrete clues a justified suspicion of an illegal action exists.


Contacting Us

We are offering in our web services the possibilities to get in contact with us by using a contact form and/or by sending an email. In this case the information, which was provided by the user, will be stored for the purpose of further communication with the user. No data will be transferred to third parties.


Integration of services and content of third parties

The web services of Optikron GmbH are using an integration of third-party content, for example Bing Maps offered by the Microsoft Corporation. The IP address of the user is perceptible for the third party provider during the access to their content, because it is essentially required for the presentation of such content. We attempt to use only such content in our web services, where their respective providers are using the IP address only for the delivery of content. However, we have no influence, if the provider of the content stores users IP address, e.g. for statistical analysis.
