Logging and the Creation of Log Files

For the purpose of ensuring a secure and stable internet presence, personal and technical data from your internet browser is logged by us or by our hosting provider.  Among other things, the following data is collected: the type and version of your internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you accessed our homepage (referrer URL), the specific DRESDEN-concept website that you accessed, the date and time of the respective access as well as the IP address of the internet connection from which our homepage is operated. The data is stored in so-called server log files on the basis of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our web pages.  The log files are deleted after 7 days unless further storage is required for evidential purposes.  Otherwise, the data is completely or partially excluded from deletion until the incident has been conclusively clarified.

Session Cookies

For the purposes of user-friendliness, effectiveness and technical security of this website, we use so-called “session cookies”. These session cookies are used to process certain personal data, such as your browser, your location data or your IP address, which are necessary for the functionality of the website (e.g. if a session cookie is necessary for our multilingual website). Our legitimate interest lies in optimising the functionality of our website and therefore has its legal basis in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.  These session cookies are deleted when you close your internet browser. User profiles are not created.

Analysis Cookie: Matomo

For the purpose of the statistical evaluation of user access, we use an analysis cookie of the open source software Matomo, which is stored on your device via your internet browser. In doing so, your IP address, our website that you visited, the website from which you accessed our homepage (referrer URL), the length of stay on our websites, as well as the access frequency of each of our websites. The IP address is anonymised immediately after processing and before it is saved.  The information generated by the cookie remains stored on our servers and is not transferred to third parties. Our legitimate interest in this processing lies in the analysis and optimisation of our websites in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.  The set cookie is valid for 13 months.

The analysis of each access improves the user-orientated nature of our website, but is generally not necessary for functionality and system security.  You can therefore object to this processing:

With the objection, a cookie is stored on your device via your internet browser, which prevents further analysis.  That data protection information according to “session cookies” applies here.
