  • Information on the type of browser used and its version

We collect and use this technical information for purposes of (network) security (such as to combat cyberattacks), marketing, and to be able to better understand our users' needs, as well as to continuously improve our website and to enable us to deliver the website to the user's computer system.

The log files contain IP addresses or other data that may, in some cases, be able to be associated to a user. That may be the case, for example, if personal data is contained in the link to the website from which the user enters our website, or the link to the website to which the user switches.

The data is likewise stored in our system's log files. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Article 6(1)(f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
