Below we explain what data we collect during your visit to our website and how it is used:
A. General information
1. Scope of data processing
In principle, we collect and use personal user data only insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services.
2. Legal basis of data processing
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the affected person for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.
In the processing of personal data necessary for the fulfillment of a contract of which the affected person is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as legal basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual measures.
If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interest of Max-Planck-Innovation GmbH (MI) or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as legal basis for processing.
3. Duration of storage
The personal data of the person concerned are in principle only stored for as long as necessary for the purpose for which the data were collected or otherwise processed. It may also be stored longer if intended by the European or national legislator in form of regulations, laws or other regulations to which MI is subject.
4. Contact details of those responsible
Responsible in the sense of the GDPR and other national data protection laws as well as other data protection regulations is the Max Planck Innovation GmbH.

B. Creation of log files in case of errors
If you visit our website and an error occurs, the following data and information are recorded by the computer system of the calling computer:
• Time (date and time) of the page view
• IP address (anonymized)
• Browser Identification
The data is stored in the log files of our systems. A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data in log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimize the website, to eliminate faults and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. In these purposes lies our legitimate interest in processing data according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
The storage of the data (including the anonymized IP address) is based on rolling logging, i.e. older data will be overwritten by newer data and thus deleted. Due to the anonymization, an assignment of the calling user is no longer possible.
