2. Data collected for website tracking
During your visit to our website, your browser transmits data which is collected for our internal analysis. Data collection occurs via a pixel method which is built into all the pages of our website. The following data is collected:
- request (file name of the requested file)
- type of web browser/browser version (e.g.: Internet Explorer 6.0)
- browser language (e.g.: German)
- operating system (e.g.: Windows XP)
- browser resolution
- screen resolution
- Java on / off
- cookies on / off
- colour depth

- order value (if applicable)
- form content (free text fields such as name and password are tracked as "completed" or "empty")
2.1 IP address
The IP address is tracked with every server request so the server knows where the reply must be sent. Everybody receives the IP address of an Internet service provider (ISP) as soon as they connect to the Internet and the ISP can see which IP address was assigned to its customer and when. Provided that the IP address is saved, the user's identity can theoretically be determined from the route of the ISP. Along with our statistics service provider, we save the IP address only in a shortened (anonymised) form and use it only for session recognition, geolocalisation (to city level) and to defend against attacks. The IP address is then immediately deleted so that the data collected remains anonymous and the user's identity can no longer be determined, even from the ISP's route.
