This website uses the KeyCDN service, proinity LLC, Faerberstrasse 9, 8832 Wollerau, Switzerland (“KeyCDN”). Access to this website can be effected by the KeyCDN server network.
This is a service that is used to deliver large media files in particular (such as graphics, page content, or scripts) through a network of regionally distributed servers connected via the Internet instead of the originating server. The use of KeyCDN’s Content Delivery Network helps us optimize the loading speeds of our website and ensures that our visitors worldwide can access our website as quickly as possible. In the event of a DDOS attack on our website, the CDN helps us defend against it.
The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 f) DSGVO on the basis of a legitimate interest in a secure and efficient provision, as well as improvement of the stability and functionality of our website. A corresponding contract for commissioned data processing exists.
f) YOURLS URL Shortener in own management
We operate our own URL shortener in the interest of data minimization. This creates a short URL for long Internet addresses (URLs) and stores statistics of the calls of the respective short URL. To protect the calling IP addresses, we use the plugin “YOURLS Pseudonymize Plugin”, which discards the last two digits of each IP address. It is an open source software. The short URLs are used among others on third party websites, social media portals or blogs for reach measurement. The data collected after pseudonomization is processed by ourselves and not passed on to third parties. The server location is Germany.
The corresponding processing is carried out according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO, the legitimate interest lies in the measurement of the reach of our website and in the provision of user-friendly links.
