Deutsche Telekom AG attaches great importance to protecting your personal data. We always inform you what personal data we collect, how your data is used, and how you can influence the process.
1. What data is recorded, how is it used, and how long is it stored?
Technical characteristics: When you visit our websites, the web server temporarily records the domain name or your computer’s IP address, the file requested (file name and URL) by the client, the http response code, and the website from which you are visiting us.
The recorded data is used solely for data security purposes, particularly to protect against attempted attacks on our web server (Article 6 (1f) GDPR). We do not use it to create individual user profiles nor do we share this information with third parties. It is erased after seven days at the latest. We reserve the right to statistically analyze anonymized data records.
2. Controlling data used by social-media plug-ins and links to social media platforms
Some web pages may contain social media buttons (e.g. Facebook, Google, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, Xing or LinkedIn) you can use to recommend the services of Deutsche Telekom AG to your friends and family.
To ensure you retain full control of the data, the used buttons provide direct contact between the respective social network and the visitor only once you actively click on the button (one-click solution).
When the social media plug-in or link is activated by clicking on the pictogram, including when sharing content, (Art. 6 (1) a GDPR) the following data may be forwarded to the social media provider: IP address, browser information, operating system, screen resolution, installed browser plug-ins (such as Adobe Flash Player), previous web page if you followed a link (referrer), URL of the current web page etc…
The next time you visit the website, the social media plug-ins are again provided in the default disabled mode, thus ensuring that no data is transferred during a repeat visit to the website.
Further information on social media plug-ins and the scope and purpose of data processing by their providers, as well as additional data privacy-relevant information can be found in the data privacy information published by the respective controller and in the information on the <<1-click solution>>.
3. Will my usage habits be evaluated, e.g. for advertising purposes or tracking?
