Privacy policy

EasyGSH-DB takes the privacy of your personal data very seriously. We want you to know which data we collect and when, and also how we use this data. The EasyGSH-DB website, a mfund project from the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI), can be used without disclosing any personal information.

Access to online content

When you visit our website for information purposes, our servers located in Germany only save the personal data transmitted to them by your browser. The log file stores the following data for a maximum of 30 days:

  • client’s IP address
  • identity of the client’s PC
  • time of the request
  • URL
  • HTTP status code
  • size of the requested object
  • browser type and version

All data stored are evaluated solely for the purpose of optimising the online content.

Transmission of personal data to third parties

The personal data that you submit will only be used within the project EasyGSH-DB. We will not forward your data to third parties without your explicit consent. Where we are required to do so by law or by the ruling of a court, we will forward your data to the relevant authorised agencies.

Links, embedded services

This privacy policy does not cover the websites of third parties to which a link is provided on our website. The providers of these websites are solely responsible for the contents contained therein. While applying a reasonable standard of review, unlawful contents were not recognisable at the time the link was created. Should any breach of the law come to our knowledge, we will remove these links immediately.

Contact forms

You can contact us directly via the contact forms available on our website. We collect, process and use the information provided by you via a contact form exclusively for the processing of your specific request and only with your consent. The processing of the data entered into the contact form is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The information you provide in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it or the data storage purpose is removed (for example, after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected.
