Thank you for your interest in the MATH+ website. The protection of the personal data of visitors to the MATH+ website is very important to us. We therefore would like to inform you about data privacy for our website.
Subject of data privacy
Data privacy addresses issues concerning personal data. According to Article 4 no. 1 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), these are data referring to an identified or identifiable individual, in other words all data which could be used to identify you. This applies to data such as your name, private address, e-mail address, and telephone number but also to usage data such as your IP address.
As a matter of course MATH+ observes the legal requirements of data privacy and other applicable regulations.
We are committed to ensuring that you can trust us concerning your personal data. For this reason, transfers of personal or sensitive data are encrypted. In addition, our websites are protected by technical measures against damage or unauthorized access.
General Data Privacy
When you visit the MATH+ website or download data from its web pages, the following information is saved in a log file:
Non-depersonalized data will be deleted after two weeks and will not be stored. This data will only be used for non-commercial purposes: It will only be reviewed manually if necessary, for error analysis, optimization or investigation of misuse or performance issues.
This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f EU-DSGVO. A right of objection according to Art. 21 EU-DSGVO is not possible due to lack of technical feasibility.
In order to protect your transmitted data as best as possible, we use SSL encryption for any data transmission. You can recognize such encrypted connections by the prefix “https://” in the page link in the address line or by the green/closed lock symbol of your browser. Unencrypted pages are marked by “http://” or an open or red lock symbol.
All data that you transmit to this website – for example when making inquiries or logging in – cannot be read by third parties thanks to SSL encryption.
Cookies are often additionally used for data collection and storage. Cookies are small data packets consisting of text that are stored by your web browser when you call up a website.
