Insofar as we make use of service providers to carry out and handle data processing, the same strict regulations on compliance with data protection laws apply to these.

Data regarding service provision

We collect and process (in particular store) only that personal data which is necessary for the provision of services and their processing.

If you contact us via e-mail, we will save your details to process the request and for possible follow-up questions. We would like to point out that messages that you send us through our website www.i-tec-consulting.com via e-mail are sent to us unencrypted.

We therefore recommend that you use the postal service for confidential messages.

Collection, processing and usage of user data of the websites

When you visit our website, the web server temporarily stores each access in a log file. We collect and store the following data up to an automated deletion:

· IP address of the requesting computer

· Date and time of access

· Name and URL of the retrieved data

· Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)

· Web browser and operating system used

· The website from which our homepage is accessed

· Amount of data transferred

For reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attempts to attack our web server, this data is stored by us; furthermore, to monitor misuse in the event of suspicion and to clarify the suspicion of criminally liable usage. The IP address is only evaluated in the event of attacks on our network infrastructure. The usage data stored by the servers is not assigned to any natural person

Web analysis

To improve the user-friendliness of the site and for statistical purposes, data is collected and stored anonymously by our service provider. This data is used to create user profiles under a pseudonym. For web analysis we use the Google Analytics Tool, which is set to comply with data protection regulations.

The data is not used to personally identify you as a visitor to the website. IP addresses are made anonymous by a corresponding reduction. By evaluating the user data, we receive anonymous information about the average length of stay and the frequency with which web pages are accessed. User data is also not merged with data about the bearer of the pseudonym.

Information about Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address)by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

Deactivating Google Analytics

Further information can be found under www.google.com/intl/en_uk/analytics/tos.html (Google Analytics Terms of Service & Privacy). Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “get.anonymizeIp();” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking).

This website uses Google Maps API in order to visually display geographical information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about use of the map functions by visitors to our website.
