2. Browsing on www.pr-people.de

For what purposes do we process your data?

When you visit our website, your browser contacts our web server to call up the websites you want to access. Basically, you do not have to register or identify yourself to use this function. However, the enquiries and feedbacks of our server are assigned based on your IP address, which is used to establish a connection to your identity, as appropriate. In detail, personal data, such as your IP address, is transferred to our web server within the framework of a HTTP/S retrieval. This connection data is processed by our web server to enable access to the website.
In addition, the respective HTTP/S calls are logged in a log file. We use this for finding technical errors and to be able to ward off and clarify attacks on our systems. In addition, we use the already stored log files to create evaluations that we use to optimize our website. The evaluation as such takes place in an anonymous form, i.e. by combining call data, so that the results no longer have any personal reference.

On what legal basis do we process your data?

The legal basis for processing your data, if applicable, depends on the specific purpose of your visit:

As a rule, the log files are processed on the legal basis of our legitimate interests acc. To Art. 6 (1) Point (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is to protect our facilities and systems from attacks and, if necessary, to take legal action against attackers and to further develop our websites for commercial purposes.
