Information about your rights regarding your data with us

Visitor counter from besucherzaehler-kostenlos.de
This website uses an external counter to record the number of website visits. For this purpose, a Java script is loaded from an external website. The server of besucherzaehler-kostenlos.de stores the IP address of the access anonymously and for a limited time in a LOG file. This file is regularly and irrevocably deleted.

In order to ensure the correct functioning of the counter, the visitor counter also stores a so-called session cookie on the visitor's computer. This is deleted by the browser as soon as it is closed. No personal information is stored in this cookie. It only contains the information of the called domain and a boolean tag (true/false) to mark the visitor as already counted.

No further personal data is collected by the visitor counter. A tracking or allocation of the accesses is not possible at any time. Special thanks to putzfrau-agentur.de, whose support makes this free service possible.

It is also through this contact with you that we want to self-critically review the protection and safeguarding of your very personal data that you have entrusted to us and, if necessary and possible, continually improve it.
