Access data / Server logfiles
Dr. Meyer-Dulheuer & Partners LLP (respectively our webspace provider) collects data about every access to our website (the so-called server logfiles). These access data include:
Title of the accessed page, file, access date and time, transferred amount of data, notification about successful access, type and version of your web browser, the operating system of the user, referrer URL (the last page you saw before you visited our website), IP-address and requesting provider.
Dr. Meyer-Dulheuer & Partners LLP only uses these protocol data for statistical analysis, in order to ensure the smooth operation, safety and steady improvement of our website. But we reserve our right to check these protocol data afterwards if a user is suspicious of using our website against the law and can be suspected of doing so by specific evidence.
How we handle personal data
Personal data of a user is information which can be used to determine the user, i.e. data which can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, e-mail address, telephone number and also the IP address.
Personal data are only collected, used and passed on by us if this is permitted by law or if the user expressly agrees to the collection of this data.
Children and young people under the age of 14 may not transmit personal data on the Internet without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. Please note that our website is not intended for or directed at young people under the age of 18. We do not knowingly collect personal information from anyone under the age of 18.
Establishing contact via email or our contact form
If a user establishes contact to Dr. Meyer-Dulheuer & Partners LLP via our contact form or via email, user details will be saved to handle the request and further questions resulting from the request.
Data transmission to our own web space is secured by SSL and HTTPS encryption. To make data transfer to our web space as secure as possible, we have integrated the SSL certificate with "HTTPS", which you can view at any time through the browser display of our pages. The symbol for secure data transmission is a green lock, the HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) transmission can be found in the address line of your web browser. There, the first five characters are the abbreviation "https", which indicates the secure connection.
An SSL certificate enables a user's computer to identify and confirm the identity of the website server. The browser first checks whether it is really in contact with the correct server. It then determines an encryption with which the data of the session, i.e. the web page visit, is encoded.
In particular for your data transmission to us via one of our contact forms, we thus offer the greatest possible security for your data.
Dr. Meyer-Dulheuer & Partners LLP points out that the confidentiality of e-mails or other electronic forms of communication on the Internet is generally not fully guaranteed. We recommend sending confidential information by post.
With the newsletter we inform you about us and current cases or court decisions in intellectual property law.
If you would like to receive the newsletter, we need a valid email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address or that the owner of the email address agrees to receive the newsletter. Dr. Meyer-Dulheuer & Partners LLP does not collect any further data for the newsletter. We also use this data only for sending the newsletter and do not pass it on to third parties.
We use Cleverreach to send our newsletter; only your e-mail address and your name are stored there for sending our newsletter. We have no influence on the processing of these personal data; this is done by Cleverreach.
Cleverreach uses so-called web beacons or pixel tags. Tracking pixels are extremely small image files, often only 1×1 pixels in size, which are integrated into the newsletter e-mail and thus permit log file recording and log file analysis.
If the user now opens the respective previously loaded e-mail, the pixel-code is loaded from the server of the newsletter operator and at the same time some information is transmitted via the e-mail recipient:
- if the e-mail has been opened,
- Time of the call,
- and the corresponding IP address.Dr. Meyer-Dulheuer & Partners LLP receives access to these evaluations in statistical form, not in individually personalized form. Nor do we get any insight into the IP addresses.
