We are V7 Ltd, with offices located at 158 Buckingham Palace Road, SW1W 9TR London, UK, hereinafter referred to as “V7”. We take data protection and privacy issues very seriously and comply with the applicable national and European data protection regulations. Therefore, we would like to inform you with this declaration about data protection measures and which data we may store and how we use this data.

2. What kind of data is collected and how is it used?

2.1 Data collection by this website

Whenever a user accesses the website, the user’s internet browser automatically transfers the following data to V7’s web server for technical reasons:

- IP address of the requesting computer
- date and time of access
- name and URL of the retrieved file
- transferred data volume
- access status (file transferred, file not found etc.)
- identification data of the browser and operating system used
- name of the provider of user's internet access
- website from which access is made

This data is collected, processed and used for the purpose of enabling the use of the website (connection setup), system security and technical administration of the network infrastructure. A comparison with other databases or a transfer to third parties, also in excerpts, does not take place. The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 b GDPR. The data collected as part of the voluntary entries under “Contacts & Service” will be used and processed exclusively for the purpose of processing the enquiry and to carry out the services you may have requested.

2.2 Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization was activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened previously by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with further services related to website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be aggregated with other Google data. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

For more information on terms of usage and privacy, please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/ or https://policies.google.com/. Please note that on the website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “anonymizeIp” in order to guarantee an anonymous registration of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR, whereby V7's authorization arises from the fact that, on the one hand, V7 has an interest in evaluating the website data for purposes of website optimization and, on the other hand, a concerned person can reasonably foresee at the time when the personal data is collected and in view of the circumstances under which it is carried out (in particular the above-mentioned measures) that it will possibly be processed for this purpose.
