Statement regarding the collation and use of personal data

Each time a user accesses the Internet content of the Federal Foreign Office or calls up a file, data on this activity is temporarily stored and processed in a log file.

Each item of data is anonymised before storage by changing the IP address.

Specifically, the following data is stored each time content is accessed:

  • anonymised IP address,
  • date and time,
  • accessed page/name of accessed file,
  • amount of data transmitted,
  • notification whether the process was successful.

This data is evaluated solely for statistical and quality‑related purposes and is subsequently deleted.

It is not used for other purposes or transferred to third parties.

Accessing individual pages generates so‑called transient cookies to facilitate navigation. These session cookies contain no personal data and are erased at the end of the session. Technology such as Java applets and activeX controls which allows user access behaviour to be monitored is not used.

Postal and email addresses supplied in connection with enquiries or requests for information material are used solely for correspondence and shipping respectively.
