HTTPS and Secure Transmission

Our website is covered by encryption with HTTPS. To ensure that a page is encrypted, you will see a padlock and/or “https” instead of just “http” in the address bar at the top of your browser.

The purpose of encryption is to ensure secure data communication between the server (the website) and the client (your computer). This includes a digital certificate that should prove the authenticity of the website and its sender.

Statistics and Logs

When you visit our website, information is stored in statistical and log files.

The system does NOT store “user agent” or IP address but saves which page the visitor has visited in a raw data table. This information is then used to generate statistics for the number of page views per item (menu item, article, file), per host, and per search term. All data in the raw data table is deleted after 2 days, and the remaining statistics only contain summarized data that cannot be used to identify individual users.

We also do not store “user agent” or IP address in the web server logs but may store which pages have been visited. These logs are exclusively used for troubleshooting and security work, and no data is extracted or used from these logs. The logs are deleted after a specified interval (usually 4 weeks). Only web server administrators (operations) have access to these logs.
