PortSignum GmbH is very serious about the protection of your personal data and strictly adheres to the German data protection laws. In accordance with the applicable data protection regulations, we have provided information below on the type, extent and purpose of the collection, processing and use of data obtained in connection with your use of this Internet site.

Personal Data

Personal data is any information that can be used to discover your identity. This type of information can be your name, mailing address, email address or telephone number. Cookies, not directly related to your identity, can be used to collect information, e.g. how the PortSignum Internet site is used. This can also be personal data, if such information is based on a user-assigned identification and thus individualized collected, stored and evaluated.

We also use "cookies” just as many other websites do. Cookies are small text files that are transferred by a Web page server to your hard drive. In this way, we automatically receive certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system on your computer and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. With the information contained in cookies, we can simplify navigation and facilitate the correct display of our websites.

In any case, the data we collect may not be shared with third parties or combined with other personal data, which we have already collected, without your consent.

You can always view our website without cookies. Internet browsers usually are set up to accept cookies. You can disable the use of cookies via your browser settings. Please note that certain features of our website may not work if you have disabled the use of cookies.

Non-personal data is information that is only aggregated, i.e. grouped into larger, not customizable units, summarized, collected and evaluated.

Data Collection and Appropriation

You can use the PortSignum Internet site without disclosing your identity. Details of the information that we gather as standard when you access our Internet site is set out below under Item “Web server log data”.

Any personal data made available by you is used and processed by us for the purposes for which you provided us with this data. The information provided via the contact form, for example, is used by us to process your enquiry.

Web Server Log Data

When you access the PortSignum Internet site, your web browser is technically configured to automatically transmit the following data ("log data") to our web server, which we then capture in log files:

  Date of access
  Time of access
  URL of the referring website
  File retrieved
  Data volume transmitted
  Browser type and version
  Operating system
  IP address

This is information which does not allow you to be identified. This information is necessary for technical purposes in order to correctly deliver the content requested by you and its collection is an unavoidable aspect of using websites. The log data is analyzed purely for statistical purposes in order to improve our website and its underlying technology, and is subsequently deleted.

The log data is stored separately from other data which is gathered as part of your use of the PortSignum Internet site.
