Automatically collected information

When you access the LTeW web­site, gen­er­al infor­ma­tion is col­lect­ed auto­mat­i­cal­ly (i.e. not through reg­is­tra­tion). The fol­low­ing data is saved auto­mat­i­cal­ly:

  • the abbre­vi­at­ed and thus anonymized IP address. The reduc­tion rules out any pos­si­bil­i­ty of ref­er­ence to a per­son.
  • the web­site you last vis­it­ed (refer­rer).
  • the web pages you have vis­it­ed in the LTeW offer.
  • the names of the retrieved files.
  • the date and time of the retrieval.
  • the oper­at­ing sys­tem and brows­er ver­sion of your PC.

 

Notes on web analysis

Google Ana­lyt­ics

This web­site uses Google Ana­lyt­ics, a web analy­sis ser­vice of Google Inc. “( Google ). Google Ana­lyt­ics uses so-called “cook­ies”, text files which are stored on your com­put­er and which enable an analy­sis of your use of the web­site.

How­ev­er, this will only be done if and inso­far as you have giv­en your express con­sent to this in accor­dance with Art. 6 (1) sen­tence 1 lit. a) GDPR. If you have agreed to the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data, you can revoke this agree­ment at any time with effect for the future. Revo­ca­tion of con­sent shall not affect the law­ful­ness of the pro­cess­ing car­ried out on the basis of the con­sent.

The infor­ma­tion gen­er­at­ed by cook­ies about your use of this web­site is usu­al­ly trans­ferred to a Google serv­er in the USA and stored there. How­ev­er, due to the IP-anonymiza­tion on this web­site, your IP address will be short­ened by Google with­in mem­ber states of the Euro­pean Union or in oth­er states which are par­ties to the Agree­ment on the Euro­pean Eco­nom­ic Area before. Only in excep­tion­al cas­es is the full IP address trans­ferred to a Google serv­er in the USA and short­ened there.

On behalf of the oper­a­tor of this web­site, Google will use this infor­ma­tion to eval­u­ate your use of the web­site, to com­pile reports on the web­site activ­i­ties and to pro­vide fur­ther ser­vices to the web­site oper­a­tor in con­nec­tion with the use of the web­site and the Inter­net. Google uses pseu­do­nyms for this pur­pose. The IP address trans­mit­ted by your brows­er with­in the frame­work of Google Ana­lyt­ics is not merged with oth­er data from Google.

 

Use of the IP address

Com­put­ers and devices con­nect­ed to the Inter­net are assigned a unique num­ber, called an IP address. Because these num­bers are usu­al­ly assigned in coun­try-based blocks, an IP address can often be used to iden­ti­fy the coun­try (state or city) where this com­put­er con­nects to the Inter­net. Google Ana­lyt­ics records the IP address­es of web­site vis­i­tors. This allows the web­site own­er to ana­lyze from which parts of the world his vis­i­tors come. This method is called geo­tar­get­ing of IP address­es.

The actu­al IP address infor­ma­tion is not shared by Google Ana­lyt­ics with Google Ana­lyt­ics cus­tomers. The IP mask method is also used: Web­site own­ers using Google Ana­lyt­ics can set it so that instead of the entire IP address, only part of it is used for geo­tar­get­ing. Web­site own­ers gen­er­al­ly have access to the IP address­es of their web­site vis­i­tors, regard­less of the use of Google Ana­lyt­ics.

 

Cook­ies

So-called ses­sion cook­ies are used on the web­site lng-wilhelmshaven.com and all its sub-domains in order to offer users greater con­ve­nience. For exam­ple, vis­i­tors to the LTeW web­sites can con­tin­ue an order for brochures that has been start­ed even after switch­ing to anoth­er page with­out hav­ing to re-enter their own data. A ses­sion cook­ie is also used for web analy­sis.

At no time is per­son­al data stored in a cook­ie.

We set the fol­low­ing cook­ies on our web­site and its sub­do­mains:

 

Nec­es­sary cook­ies (first-par­ty cook­ies):

Name from domain Dura­tion Pur­pose
cook­ie-agreed lng-wilhelmshaven.com 3 months Stor­age of the user’s con­sent sta­tus for cook­ies on the cur­rent domain

 

Cook­ies for sta­tis­ti­cal pur­pos­es (third-par­ty cook­ies): 

Name from domain Dura­tion Pur­pose
_gat ttps://policies.google.com/privacy 24 hours Reduc­tion of the require­ment rate for sta­tis­ti­cal analy­sis of web­site usage
_gid ttps://policies.google.com/ 24 hours Dis­tin­guish­ing unique vis­i­tors for sta­tis­ti­cal analy­sis of web­site usage
_ga ttps://policies.google.com/ 24 months Dis­tin­guish­ing unique vis­i­tors for sta­tis­ti­cal analy­sis of web­site usage

 

Oppo­si­tion to the stor­age of cook­ies

Pri­mar­i­ly, you can pre­vent the set­ting of cook­ies for sta­tis­ti­cal and/or mar­ket­ing pur­pos­es in our cook­ie ban­ner from the out­set by not giv­ing your con­sent to the set­ting of these cook­ies.

More­over, most browsers are pre­set to auto­mat­i­cal­ly accept cook­ies. How­ev­er, you can deac­ti­vate the stor­age of cook­ies or set your brows­er to noti­fy you before cook­ies are stored. Users who do not accept cook­ies may not be able to access cer­tain areas of our web­sites.

You can also pre­vent the col­lec­tion of data gen­er­at­ed by the cook­ie and relat­ed to your use of the web­site (includ­ing your IP address) to Google and the pro­cess­ing of this data by Google by down­load­ing and installing the brows­er plug-in avail­able under this link.
