1. Personal data when visiting this website

a. What data is collected and processed when visiting this website?

Each time you access content on the site, data is temporarily stored that may permit identification. The following data is collected with each access:

  • Date and time of access
  • IP address
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Website from which the website was accessed
  • Visited page on our website
  • Status code of the access
  • Amount of data transferred
  • Information about the browser type and version used
  • Operating system

When individual pages are called, so-called temporary cookies are used for technical service provision. These session cookies contain no personal data and expire after the visit to the website.

Note: You can set your browser to not accept cookies and still use this website without restrictions.

A statistics program only collects anonymous data on the number of visits and visitors to This is necessary for our internal evaluation of visitor numbers.

b. For what purpose is data collected and processed?

The sole purpose of the data collection (creation of the log files) is the provision of the website.

The temporary storage of the data is required for the expiry of a website visit in order to enable the delivery of the website. Further storage in log files takes place to ensure the functionality of the website and the security of information technology systems. In these purposes, our legitimate interest is in the data processing.

c. On which legal basis are these data processed?

The data are processed on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR.

d. Who has access to the data and when will it be deleted?

The website is hosted at Hetzner Online GmbH, Industriestr. 25, 91710 Gunzenhausen, Germany, e-mail: The hoster receives the above data as a processor.

The log files are only accessible to administrators of the IBKA and the server host and only for the purpose of maintaining the functioning of the website and to ward off attacks. For this purpose, this data is kept for a maximum of 14 days.

2. Rights of persons affected

Right to objection, information, correction and deletion

hese rights can only be claimed to a limited extent since only data for the provision of the website are collected and this storage of the log files is required for the operation of the website. The collection and processing of data is therefore not based on a consent under Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR or on a contract under Article 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR but justified under Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The requirements of Art. 20 para. 1 GDPR are therefore not fulfilled in this respect. As a result, no right to contradiction arises.

Right to complain

If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates data protection law, then Art. 77 para. 1 GDPR gives you the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority of your own choice. This includes the data protection supervisory authority responsible for the responsible person: Land Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information North Rhine-Westphalia, PO Box 20 04 44, 40102 Düsseldorf, 0211 / 38424-0,
