Collection, processing and use of personal data

Each time the website Europe supports culture is accessed and each time a file is retrieved, data relating to this process is automatically stored and processed in a log file. Before storage, each data record is anonymized by changing the IP address. It is therefore not possible to assign the collected data to a specific natural person. In detail, the following data is stored about each access:

  • Anonymized IP address
  • Pages accessed
  • Names of the accessed files
  • Date and time of access
  • Amount of data transferred
  • Message whether the retrieval was successful
  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used

This data is only evaluated for statistical purposes and to improve the offer. It is not used in any other way or passed on to third parties. No other personal data is collected.
