II. Use of the website of MTR+ Vertriebs GmbH


The use of the internet pages of MTR+ Vertriebs GmbH is basically possible without any indication of personal data.
However, if an affected person wishes to use our company’s special services through our website, personal data processing may be required. MTR+ Vertriebs GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures as the controller and operator of the Internet pages in order to ensure the most complete protection possible for personal data. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security holes, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each data subject is free to submit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by post.


Storage of access data

Every time the website is accessed, MTR+ Vertriebs GmbH collects data and information through an automated system. These are stored in the log files of the server.

The following data can be collected here:

(1) Information about the browser type and version used
(2) The operating system of the user
(3) The Internet service provider of the user
(4) The IP address of the user
(5) Date and time of access
(6) Websites from which the user’s system accesses our website
(7) Web pages accessed by the user’s system through our website

The processing of the data serves to deliver the contents of our website, to ensure the functionality of our information technology systems and to optimize our website. The data of the log files are always stored separately from other personal data of the users.
