When you visit our website or retrieve a file, data relating to this process are stored in a log file on our web server. These data are anonymous, with the exception of the IP address. We therefore cannot trace which user accessed which data. This means that when a user accesses our website, data that your browser transmits to us are automatically captured and stored.

IP addresses

We deliberately do not log IP addresses in plain text when our websites are used. In line with data privacy regulations, we apply a pseudonym to your IP address before we store it in our web server log file. We use these psydonomised IP addresses to identify and counteract attacks or to compile web statistics for example.
