Indirect Data Collection

Server Logs
With every visit of our website by a data subject or an automated system, general data and information is collected. This general data and information is stored in our server log files. Collected data and information may include the visitor’s Internet Protocol address (IP address), the date and time when the website was accessed, the address of the accessed website, the referrer website, the browser used and the operating system used. The collection of this data is intended to fend off any threats in the case of attacks targeting our IT systems. When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Logging this information is required by law and necessary for safety reasons. There is no opt-out possibility, however, this information is never used for any other purposes.

Website Analysis

Purpose of Data Processing

This website uses Matomo, which is an open-source, self-hosting software designed to collect anonymous information about how this website is used. Data on visitor behaviour is collected to identify possible issues such as pages that are not found, search engine issues or unpopular pages. As soon as the data is processed (number of visitors that see defective pages, just one page, etc.), Matomo creates a report and thus enables the website operator to react accordingly (layout adjustments, new content, etc.).

Matomo processes the following data:
  • Anonymised IP addresses by removing the last byte
  • Pseudo-anonymised location (based on the anonymised IP address)
  • Date and time
  • Title of the accessed page
  • URL of the accessed page
  • URL of the previous page (if this is allowed)
  • Screen resolution
  • Local time
  • Files that were accessed and downloaded
  • External links
  • Page loading speed
  • Country, region, city (with low accuracy due to the truncation of the IP address)
  • Main browser language
  • User agent of the browser
  • Interactions with forms (without disclosing their content)
Rights of the Data Subjects
As Matomo collects information based on legitimate interests, you may exercise the following rights:
  • The right to information and data portability: you have the right to demand all your data at any time.
  • The right to deletion and correction: you have the right to request us to delete all your data at any time.
  • The right to file a complaint with the data protection authorities: If you think that the way we process your data with Matomo is unlawful, you have the right to file a complaint with the data protection authorities.
  • The right to object and the right to restriction of processing: you have the right to object to data collection at any time by enabling DoNotTrack in your browser or by ticking this box:

Based on Legitimate Interest

Data processing is based on the principle of legitimate interest.
Processing the data helps us to find out what works on our website, and what doesn’t. For example, it helps us to find out whether consumers appreciate the contents of our website or how to improve its structure. Thanks to data processing, our users thus benefit from a website that is constantly being improved. Without this kind of information, we would not be able to provide such services. Your data is exclusively employed to improve website usage.

Contact Form

The contact form helps us to establish a one-time contact with you.
It processes your e-mail address and sends the data you entered to the Axel Gerstl team. The data is not shared with anyone and and is only used for answering the request (no other marketing e-mails will be sent to you).
Data recipients:

Disclosure of Data to Third Parties

We will not disclose any personal data to third parties.
Excepted from this practice are processors (service partners) requiring data to be transferred to fulfil their tasks (e.g. the bank charged with the handling of payments and any forwarding agents). The amount of data transferred for these purposes, however, is limited to the required minimum.

Transferring Data to Third Countries

The data on this website and Matomo are hosted in Germany. The corresponding data never leaves the EU.

Moreover, registered users can, at any time, edit or delete the data they entered during the registration as needed.

For an effective registration, we need a valid e-mail address. To verify that a registration is indeed performed by the e-mail address owner, we employ the “double opt-in” mechanism. For this purpose, we log the newsletter subscription, the dispatch of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the reply requested by it. No other data will be collected. The data will be used solely for newsletter distribution and will not be disclosed to third parties.

Such user profiles may for example be used to place advertisements on the platform and on other sites that are likely to correspond to your interests. For this purpose, we usually place cookies on your device. These cookies track the visitor’s behaviour and store information on his / her interests. This serves according to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR the protection of our legitimate interests in the proper presentation of our offer and in an optimum communication with customers and other interested persons that are overriding in the process of balancing of interests. Any requests by social media platform operators to consent to the processing of your data, e.g. by ticking a respective checkbox, are based on Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR as the legal foundation for data processing. As far as the aforementioned social media platforms are headquartered in the USA, the following applies: An adequacy decision of the European Commission, based on the EU-US Privacy Shield, exists for data transfers to the USA.
