Log files of the hosting provider (Hostpoint AG)

So that Hostpoint AG can provide its services reliably, technically flawlessly and in compliance with the law, its servers create so-called log files. These contain information such as:

  • IP addresses
  • Date and Time
  • Protocol information such as protocol type, version, the desired action, status codes or information on the transferred data
  • Error messages
  • Browser used (user agent string)
  • Page from which the visitor reached the website

The information is used, among other things, to understand and solve technical problems, to find man-made errors, to ward off attacks on our infrastructure, to support post-mortem analyzes on hacked customer websites or to generate visitor statistics for websites.
The data remains on Hostpoint AG’s systems until the operational necessity no longer applies and the statutory or contractual deadlines have expired and are then automatically deleted. For most dates, this is a maximum of six months.

This site uses SSL encryption for reasons of security and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http: //” to “https: //” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
When SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
