Processing and temporary storage of the IP address is required to enable delivery of the website to your device. For this purpose, the IP address of the user needs be stored for the duration of the session. Log files may contain IP addresses and other information data that might facilitate identification of a user. Data is stored in log files to ensure proper functioning of the website. Moreover, this data is used to optimise our website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. Your e-mail address is stored so that we can provide you with a unique link via e-mail to reset your password.
Personal information that is processed while visiting a DENIC ID website will be deleted as soon as the purpose of retaining such data no longer applies. If personal information is processed during a visit to the website, storage of such information for the purpose of data analysis will occur after your IP addresses were deleted or truncated in a way that prevents identification of the user.
Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is Article 6(1) (f) of the GDPR. Cookies are stored on the device of the user and will be transmitted from the device to DENIC's website.

DENIC has technical and organisational safety measures in place to protect your personal information from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. We continuously improve our security measures in line with technological evolution.
If DENIC processes your personal data, you are considered a data subject within the meaning of Article 4(1) of the GDPR, which gives you the following rights with respect to DENIC:
If you intend to exercise one of the following rights, please contact our data protection officer at privacy[at]denic[dot]de.
Please be aware that under certain circumstances we may request additional information from you in order to verify your identity. This allows us to ensure that, e.g. when exercising the Right of Access, we do not disclose personal information to unauthorized persons.
Pursuant to Article 15 of GDPR you have the right to obtain information about your personal information processed by DENIC. Please provide a sufficient level of detail in your request to access such information to facilitate assembling the requested information at DENIC.
Pursuant to Article 16 of the GDPR, you have the right to request DENIC to rectify and/or complete any inaccurate personal data concerning you.
Pursuant to Article 17 of the GDPR, you have the right to request DENIC to delete your personal data without undue delay. Your entitlement to deletion of data is subject to a potential further need for such data to perform our contractual or legal duties.
Pursuant to Article 18 of the GDPR, you have the right to demand restriction of processing of your personal data. If you claim your right to the restriction of processing, we may no longer be able to provide the DENIC ID service until the matter has been settled.
Pursuant to Article 20 of the GDPR, you have the right to receive your personal data which you have made available to DENIC in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, so that you can forward such data to another data processor.
Pursuant to Article 21 of the GDPR, you are entitled to object at any time, for reasons relating to your specific situation, to the processing of your personal information which is based on Article 6(1) (e) or (f) of the GDPR. In this case, DENIC will no longer process your personal data, unless DENIC demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing is necessary to assert, exercise or defend any legal claims.
If you consider our processing of your personal information to be illegitimate, you may file a complaint with any supervisory data protection authority. The supervisory authority responsible for DENIC is:
