Basics

Hi, my name is Nicolas Hinternesch and this is my small, personal website. This site will never store, distribute, share or sell the personal information that you decide to enter in the contact form. In order to be fully transparent, I still want to give you some background information about the few services that I am using to guarantee the site's full functionality.

Analytics

Just like the vast majority of modern websites, I use an Analytics solution to understand and optimize the use of my site. Of course, I am using AT Internet - please excuse my bias. It helps me find out, how many users visit this site, how they use it, and how they found out about it. For this purpose data is stored by a third party service provider, which is fully compliant with the new GDPR guideline. The service provider's servers are located in EU member states. For this analytics method, all data will be made anonymous during collection and analysed in aggregated form. Your Internet browser automatically transmits data to our server when you access our websites. This data consists of: date and time of access, URL (address) of the referring website, retrieved file, amount of data sent, HTTP response code, browser type and browser version, browser extensions, width and height of the browser window, colour depth, operating system and your IP address (truncated and anonymized). Your IP address is used for geolocation analyses only. Your IP address is nor stored permanently nor crossed with other user data. This data is stored separately from other data you enter while using our website. It is not possible for us to link this data to a specific person. It does not contain any information which would allow the identification of individuals. Data is collected and used exclusively for statistical and for analytical purposes, such as for improving our offer. To perform those analyses we are using cookies. They are stored as text files on your computer. For returning visits on the website they allow the identification of a computer system. You can refuse or delete cookies in your browser's preferences at any time. However, if you do so you may no longer be able to use all our portal's functions. Most of the cookies used are so called “session cookies“ that will be deleted when you finish your browser session. In addition, AT Internet uses two long-lasting (persistent) cookies, which are stored for 30 days or a maximum of 12 months. You can find further information on how ATI uses cookies here. The AT Internet privacy and data security principles can be found here. If you want, you can opt out of all data processing by AT Internet here.
