As the person responsible for processing, green benefit AG has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
Collection of general data and information
All types of access to the green benefit AG website are logged using a standardised procedure. Usage data such as the user’s operating system, the browser used with the respective version, the previously visited website from which our website was accessed (so-called referrer URL), the subwebsites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, the host name and IP address of the user, the time and date of access to our website, addresses accessed, the scope of the data transmitted and other processes taking place. This procedure serves only internal safety precautions as well as a logging for statistical purposes. We do not associate your usage data with data that allows us to draw conclusions about you personally. The usage data is required to correctly deliver the contents of our website and to ensure its long-term functionality. In addition, in the event of a cyber attack, we use the information to determine the originator or authorities to make it available to the responsible security authorities. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Par. 1 S.1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes stated above for data collection.
