§ 4 Definition of personal data
Personal data is any information about the personal and actual circumstances of a particular or identifiable person. This information includes, for example, your name, e-mail address, postal address or telephone number. Information on the basis of which your identity cannot be determined without additional data is not included.
In the opinion of the supervisory authorities, IP addresses are, in particular, data that refer to personal data. The transmission of the IP address when accessing a website is a technical necessity. If necessary, the data is analysed for statistical purposes in anonymous and pseudonymised form. This means that it is not possible to identify you personally through this.
In principle, our data protection declaration should be simple and understandable for everyone. For this reason, our data protection declaration generally uses the official terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The official definitions are explained in Art. 4 GDPR.
