Which data we collect and process

1. Log Data

When you visit our website, the device that you use to access the page automatically transmits log data (connection data) to the servers of our hosting service provider. Log data contains the IP address of accessing device, the type of browser, the system configuration, the previously visited website (referrer URL), as well as date and time information. The IP addresses are stored only to the extent necessary to provide the services. Otherwise, the IP addresses are deleted or anonymized. Your IP address when visiting our website is stored for a maximum of 7 days to detect and ward off attacks.

2. Cookies

Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f of the GDPR) the website of SPACE IC uses cookies. Cookies are small text files which are stored on the device you used to access the website. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his visit to the website. We use so called temporary “session” cookies, which enable the correct presentation of the website. Session cookies are already deleted when you close your web browser. Furthermore we use persistent cookies which remain on your device for a pre-defined period of time. These are used to recognize our website users to enable statistical analysis of our website usage and optimization of our website content and user experience.

Cookie opt-out: You can prevent the setting of cookies at any time by means of an appropriate setting of your Internet browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

3. Google Analytics

Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. analysis, optimization and economic operation of our website pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f of the GDPR) we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). The purpose is to analyze the flow of visitors on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us.

Google Analytics sets a cookie in your browser. By using this cookie Google is enabled to analyze the usage of our website. Each time you visit a web page that has a Google Analytics component integrated into it, the web browser automatically causes it to submit data to Google which is usually stored on a Google server in the USA. No personal data will be transmitted to Google. The IP address we collect will be forwarded to Google only after anonymization.

Google Analytics opt-out: It is possible to object to the collection and processing of this data by Google. You can deactivate Google Analytics just for the SPACE IC website by clicking HERE. This will set an opt-out cookie in your current web browser. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must click this link again. Alternatively you can generally deactivate Google Analytics by downloading and installing a browser add-on at

Based on our legitimate interests (i.e. economic operation of our website within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f of the GDPR), we make use of content or services offered by third-party providers, such as inclusion of videos or maps. This always presupposes that the third party providers of this content perceive your IP address, since they could not send the content to your browser without the IP address.
