6.4 Collection of access data and log files
On the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f GDPR, we collect data on every access to the server on which this service is located (so-called server log files). The access data includes the path of the website accessed, files linked to it, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider as well as other browser header data.

Log file information is stored for a period of 6 months for security reasons (e.g. for the clarification of abuse or fraud) and then deleted. Data whose further storage is required for evidential purposes is excluded from deletion until final clarification of the respective incident. This data will not be passed on to third parties unless it is necessary to pursue our claims or there is a legal obligation to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) c GDPR.
6.5 Online presence in social media
We only actively maintain online presences within social networks and platforms via our HARTMANN SCIENCE CENTER in order to be able to communicate with the customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services. When accessing social networks and platforms, the terms and conditions and data processing guidelines of the respective operator apply.
We process your personal data if you communicate them within social networks and platforms, e.g. by writing articles on our online presences or sending us messages. In addition, Facebook, among other things, may provide statistics and insights (e.g., total number of page views, "Like" information, page activity, post interactions, video views, post reach, comments, shared content, responses, etc.) that help us understand the types of actions you take on our sites. This enables us to better understand your interests and preferences and can, for example, increase the attractiveness of articles or our performance presentation or choose the right time for publication.
We point out that your personal data may be processed by the respective operator outside the European Union or the European Economic Area. As a result, risks may arise for you, in particular the enforcement of rights may become more difficult.
If you click on the button of the respective operator, you will be redirected to our respective online presence in a separate browser window and can - if you are logged in to your user account - share or subscribe to our news, among other things. Clicking the button will establish a direct connection between your browser and the server of the respective operator. The respective operator receives the information that you have visited our website with your IP address. The respective operator may collect further personal data as soon as you use their offers. In addition, it is then possible for the respective operator to assign your visit to our website to you and your user account, provided you are logged in to your user account.
In addition, your personal data may be further processed for the purposes of market research and advertising. This means that profiles can be created from your usage behaviour and the preferences and interests derived from it. Such profiles can be used, for example, to place suitable advertisements within our online presence or on other online presences or websites based on the interests determined. Cookies are placed and stored on your end device, with the help of which personal data on usage behaviour can be collected and bundled for further processing - to determine your interests. The collection and bundling of this personal data can - especially if you are logged in to your user account - also be realised across several end devices used by you.
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest in effective information and performance presentation and direct communication with you in relation to our online offer in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f GDPR.
