- Website that you call up on our server
- The date and time when you accessed the website
- Your IP address
This data is stored separately from any personal data that you may have provided and so cannot be traced to an individual person. It is assessed on the basis of events for troubleshooting and for statistical purposes so that we can optimise our website, or so that we can obtain additional information in the event of specific indications of possible unlawful use. When they reach a certain size, these log files are automatically rotated and therefore overwritten.
Our website uses what are called cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device with the help of the browser. They do not cause any damage. The following data is recorded:
- IP addresses
Your IP address is recorded but it is immediately anonymised by deleting the last 8 bits. This means that only a general localisation is possible.
Our website uses what are called session cookies. These are cookies that are active only while you visit the website. Session cookies are therefore valid for a limited period of time and are deleted when you close the browser/tab. A token is saved on the server for a maximum of 30 minutes. Session cookies only store IP addresses.
If you do not want this, you can configure your browser so that it informs you when cookies are set and you can allow this on a case-by-case basis.
Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of our website.

Both SMATRICS and the provider use technical and organizational security measures to protect your data from manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Irrespective of the above, we would like to inform you that any transfer of data via the Internet is not secure and there is therefore a risk that it may be intercepted and used by third parties. Our security procedures are continually enhanced as new technology becomes available.
