The processing of your data and collection of aforementioned log data is a technical necessity for serving this website.
Protection of collected data
Only system administration staff has access to the aforementioned log data by means of physical server security as well as server configuration. All data is stored on our own systems and never leaves them.
Disclosure to third parties
No collected data is disclosed to any third party, except when instructed by you or where required by law.
You can request a copy of the personal data collected on you by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. As the only identifying data we collect are IP addresses in error logs, this is the only data available. To ensure we only give you a copy of data that was collected from you specifically, you will have to provide your IP address as well as a suitable proof that you personally were the sole user of that IP address during the timeframe for which you request the data.
