Scope of application

This data protection declaration informs you about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data on our web page by UBJ. GmbH (hereinafter “we” or “us”). We are the responsible body for all personal data collected on the web page, unless this Data Protection Declaration contains differing information.

In the event of questions, you can contact the Data Protection Officer of UBJ. GmbH via the following E-mail address:

Personal data

Personal data are information via which a person is identifiable, i.e. information that can be traced back to a single individual. Typically, they include their name, E-mail address or telephone number. Moreover, purely technical data that can be assigned to an individual shall, however, also be regarded as personal data.

Automatic collection of access data / server log files

Every time the web page is accessed, we automatically collect a series of technical data that involves personal data. These are:

  • The user’s IP address
  • The name of the retrieved web page and/or file
  • The access date and time of day
  • The volume of data transferred
  • A report of successful retrieval
  • Browser type and version
  • The user’s operating system
  • The terminal device employed by the user, including its MAC address
  • The Referrer URL (the previously visited page)

This data is not combined with other personal data that you actively provide in the context of the web page.

Server log files with the aforementioned data are automatically deleted after 14 days. We reserve the right to store server log files for a longer period of time if there are facts present that arouse the suspicion of non-permissible access (e.g. a hacking attempt or a so-called DDOS [distributed denial-of-service] attack).

Personal data in log files are processed based on Article 6, Para. 1, Letter f of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). This permit condition allows processing of personal data within the framework of a “legitimate interest” on the part of the responsible person, except insofar as your fundamental rights, fundamental freedoms or interests predominate. Our legitimate interest lies in easier administration and in the possibility of recognising and pursuing hacking. You can object to this data processing at any time if there are reasons present that lie in your particular situation and oppose the data processing. An E-mail to shall be sufficient for this purpose.

What is an IP Address?

Every device (e.g. smartphone, tablet or PC) connected to the Internet is assigned an IP Address. Which IP Address this is depends on the Internet access via which your terminal device is currently connected to the Internet. It may involve the IP Address assigned to you by your Internet provider, for example if you are connected to the Internet through your W-LAN at home. However, it may also involve an IP Address assigned to you by your mobile phone provider, or the IP Address of a public or private W-LAN provider or other Internet access. In its currently most frequent form (IPv4), the IP Address consists of four blocks of numbers. In most cases, you as a private user will not employ a constant IP Address, because your provider will assign it to you only temporarily (a so-called “Dynamic IP Address”). In the case of a permanently assigned IP Address (a so-called “Static IP Address”), an unambiguous attribution of user data is possible more easily in principle. As a basic principle, other than for purposes of pursuing unauthorised accesses to our Internet offering, we do not use this data in a person-related way, but solely evaluate, on an anonymised basis, which of our web pages are favoured, how many accesses take place each day, and for similar purposes.

Our web page already supports the new IPv6 addresses. If you already possess an IPv6 address, you should also know the following: an IPv6 address consists of eight blocks of four digits. Like the entire IPv4 address, the first four blocks are typically assigned dynamically in the case of private users. However, the last four blocks of an IPv6 address (the so-called “Interface Identifier”) are determined by the terminal device you use to browse the web page. The so-called MAC (Media Access Control) Address is used for this purpose, except insofar as it is set differently in your operating system. The MAC Address involves a kind of serial number issued uniquely worldwide for every IP-capable device. Therefore, we do not store the last four blocks of your IPv6 address. In general, we advise you to activate the so-called “Privacy Extensions” on your terminal device, to ensure better anonymising of the last four blocks of your IP address. Most current operating systems have a “Privacy Extensions” function, although in some cases this is not factory pre-set.
