Data controller / responsible
The responsible data controller is Riscography Solutions GmbH with seat in Erlangen, Germany.
Overview over our data processing
In conjunction with our online presence, we process your data as follows:
Our web server collects and saves information about page access including their status for a few days for the purpose of error correction and attack analysis.
- Website (usage statistics)
- Contact form
When you submit information via our contact form, it will be processed by the web server solely for sending us an email. The email is handled equally to any other email you may send us. We process personal data in these messages based on our legitimate interest which lies in fulfilling your request. Potentially we also process it to fulfill contractual obligations. Later we keep the data in order to comply with legal obligations regarding documentation of commercial communication until these obligations end.
- White paper download
When you fill and send our white paper contact form to receive our white paper, the server sends us an email with the data you have provided. We will thereafter provide you with the white-paper and allow you to register for our newsletter. The email is processed to fulfill your request (contract). We will not further work with your email but keep it in our documentation in conjunction with our legal documentation obligations (up to 10 years).
Our newsletter system is not active yet. We will therefore initially manually process your data in a table if you wish to receive our newsletter. As soon as we have chosen a newsletter processor, we will inform you accordingly and hand over the data after two weeks unless you recall your processing consent. We intend to use a European provider. For the newsletter, we require your email address but kindly ask you to provide us with your name and company as to enable us to address you personally. The processing is based on your consent which you can naturally withdraw anytime.
You can ask for information about your data we process, including transmission to third parties; you may also ask for correction and for deletion or restriction of processing of the data. We hereby inform you that for data saved in conjunction with our website, we regularly do not have the possibility to attribute the data to you ourselves and we may hence need further information from you to fulfil the request; in such cases we will inform you accordingly and provide you with the requested information as soon as we have received the necessary further information. Please contact us directly in all such cases (you find the contact paths in the imprint).
For data we process based on your consent or to fulfill a contractual relationship, you can request a copy of such data. However, we will exclude data whose handover would infringe rights and freedoms of third parties.
In case we process your data based on legitimate interest, you have the right to object based on grounds relating to your particular situation.
You can revoke your cookie consent at any time by clicking on the following button:
Revoke cookie settings
Furthermore, you have the statutory right to address a responsible data protection authority.
Website and tracking
Your communication will in all regular cases be encrypted (TLS/SSL), so data cannot be read by third parties with reasonable effort (we cannot completely exclude it, though). You will see your browsers marking for encrypted sites.
Server logs of IP addresses and requests
Our system saves access log. They generally contain:
- The requested address (URL)
- Your browser type, version and operating system used (as transmitted by your browser)
- The page from which the URL has been access (referrer, as and insofar transmitted by your browser)
- The timestamp of accessing the page
- Your IP Address
- The result of the request (status-code) (e.g. whether the page has successfully been loaded, has been redirected to another page or whether/which error has occurred)
- We cannot attribute this data to any person; the IP address could potentially be resolved to the owner of the internet contract by your provider (we will not ask for that). Solely for cases of illegal usage (such as hacking) we reserve the right to verify the data at a later stage and to take further action.
The data processing including saving is based on legitimate interest for the purpose of error and attack diagnosis.
Logfiles are being saved for seven days.
When you send us messages via the contact form, the server will process the data to send us an email on your behalf. This email will be processed accordingly to other emails we receive and will be saved as necessary under applicable laws.
What are cookies?
Internet sites are stateless by default. That is, the server basically does not know who you are, where you come from and whether you have already visited the site. Cookies help to establish a status. Thanks to them, the server may, for example, identify whether you have logged in as a user or whether you have recently visited the page. This is done by sending your browser tiny text files, which your software saves and sends to the server together with the next request. Further information can be found in Wikipedia. You may change your preference at any time (please see chapter “Your rights”).
As far as you have made your cookie choice, one single cookie will be set in any case. This cookie named cookie_notice_accepted does not store any personal data, just your choice whether you want cookies or not (that is technically necessary).
The data processing is based on our legitimate interest which lies in adapting our page to your needs and interests. You may object such processing, for further information see section your rights. In that case we will set a cookie stating that you do not want to be tracked and our system will not set any tracking cookies.
We use the following data for creating statistics:
- IP address (anonymized by dropping half of the address and only using the first two bytes of IPv4 addresses)
