2. Categories of Personal Data, Intended Purpose of Data Processing, Legal Bases, and Duration of Storage
2.1 Visiting our Website varsandnumbers.com
For systemic reasons, during the visit of our website information is being generated and stored in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transfers to us. These are:
- IP address of the terminal accessing our website;
- date and time of access;
- name and URL of the file retrieved;
- notice whether the retrieval was successful;
- referrer URL (website from which the access took place) or, respectively, the name of the access provider; and
- browser and operating system used.
For us, these data are not directly attributable to a specific person. The
data are being stored separately from other personal data; the data are not
consolidated with other data sources.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of this data is Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR"), as far as personal data are involved in the first place. In order to enable the delivery of the website to the user’s computer, it is necessary, for technical reasons, that the system temporarily stores the IP address. The storage in log files takes place in order to ensure the functionality of the website. Therein also lies our overriding legitimate interest in the data processing according to Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
The data are erased as soon as they are no longer necessary for achieving the purpose of their collection. In case data are collected for making the website available, this will happen once the respective session has ended. In the case of data stored in log files, these data will be erased after 7 days at the latest.
2.2 Communication via Email or Other Channels
If you communicate with us by using a email or other channel, we process your personal data to handle your request. These data include e.g.:
- contact details, e.g. name, email address, postal address, phone number (if provided), as well as
- content data of the communication.
The legal basis for processing the data is Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b
GDPR. According to this provision, we are allowed to process data wherever
the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you
are a party or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract.
Besides, we base the data processing on our overriding legitimate interests
(Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR).
Please note that, in general, data is not always transmitted securely on the Internet. Especially in email traffic the protection of data cannot be guaranteed during the exchange of data. We recommend that you do not send any particularly sensitive data to us by email.
2.3 Other Communication with (Potential) Contracting Parties
n case you – as a customer, service provider, or other contracting party – seek to enter into a contractual relationship with us, or already have entered into a such a relationship, we process data necessary for the performance of the contract like
- basic data, e.g. name, address, subject matter and duration of the contract, etc.; as well as
- payment information, e.g. bank details, payment history.
The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b
GDPR. According to this provision, we are allowed to process data insofar
as the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which
you are a party or if the processing is necessary for the implementation
of pre-contractual measures.
DThe data will be deleted as soon as their processing is no longer necessary. This means that the data will be erased once the contractual relationship has ended, potential warranty claims have expired, and we are no longer obligated by legal record-keeping requirements to store the data beyond this point. Such record-keeping requirements could arise e.g. from the relevant legal provisions in German commercial and fiscal law, namely sections 238 et seq. and 257 of the German Commercial Code and section 147 of the Fiscal Code of Germany.
2.4 Use of our Online Presences on Social Platforms (Twitter, LinkedIn or GithHub)
We maintain online presences on several social platforms in order to communicate with the users who are active on these platforms. At present, we maintain online presences Twitter, LinkedIn and GitHub.

on your own responsibility. The use of the social platforms is
not necessary for contacting us. You can also communicate with us using
the contact details given in section 1 of this privacy statement.
We have no influence on the data processed by the social platforms and on the scope of this data processing. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. sending, sharing or rating of messages). The following information can be found hereafter: information on who is responsible for the social media used by us; information regarding the purposes for which – according to their own statements – the social platforms process data; information about the safeguards which justify a data transfer to other EU countries; information on settings you may use on the platforms in order to protect your privacy:

When using social platforms, your personal data will be collected, transferred,
stored, disclosed, and used by those responsible. Regardless of your place
of residence, your data will thereby be transferred to and used in the
United States and any other country where the social platform does business.
The providers of the social platforms are non-European companies
which at most consider themselves to be bound by European data protection
provisions to a limited extent only. This can for example have
an impact on the rights granted to you by the GDPR as a data subject.
As a general rule, the social platforms process the following data:
- data you have voluntarily entered, e.g. name, login data, contact data, and potentially data regarding contacts from your address book (insofar as you upload or synchronize your address book);
- data which can be derived from the contents shared by you (e.g. interest in specific topics);
- data which can be derived from your communication with third parties or from the circumstances of your communication, e.g. contents of confidential messages, information related to your location, information regarding wireless networks, etc.;
- data which is created when you view content (also without having created an account), e.g. IP address, type of browser, operating system, information about the website you have visited before, etc.
Additionally, the social platforms may possibly use analysis tools and
cookies for the analysis for your data. Insofar as analysis tools and cookies
are being used, we have not commissioned their use nor have we supported
it in any other way. Insofar as personal data are being analyzed, these
data are not made available to us. Only non-personal information (e.g.
regarding tweet activities) are accessible to us.
You have the possibility to limit the processing of your data. To do so, please use the general settings of your accounts on the social platforms (e.g. under the section "Data Protection and Safety"). In case of access by mobile device, please use your mobile device’s settings (e.g. limiting the access options to contact data and calendar data).
2.4.2 Processing of Data by Us
We also process your personal data when you use the social platforms. We
do not collect any of your personal data through our accounts. However,
the data entered by you (e.g. user name, posts) will potentially be used
by us to reply to you or to share (retweet) your posting. In this way,
the data disclosed by you will be made accessible to our followers.
To this data processing, the principles described in section 2.2 of this privacy statement apply accordingly.
2.5 No Legal or Contractual Obligation to Provide Your Personal Data
There is no legal obligation for you to provide your personal data to us. This means that you are not required to provide your personal data to us. If, however, you do not provide your personal data to us, this could potentially result in our potential inability to communicate with you, to enter into a contract with you or to perform a contract.
3. Transfer of Your Personal Data to Recipients
Generally, a transfer of your data does not occur unless explicitly stated in section 2 of this privacy statement. As far as data are transferred during the processing procedures mentioned in section 2 to the servers of providers commissioned by us with providing tracking or targeting technologies or are transferred to the servers of providers of social platforms in the United States, this data transfer takes place according to the principles of the so-called "EU‑U.S. Privacy Shield". For more information on the EU-U.S: Privacy shield, please follow the hyperlinks in section 2.4.1 of this privacy statement.
