Data privacy statement
Hanns Eisler School of Music Berlin takes the privacy of personal data very seriously. Personal data collected during visits to our website are handled in accordance with the applicable legal data privacy conditions. We neither publish nor pass on your data to third parties without permission. Which information is collected during a visit to our website and how it is used is explained in the following.

Data collection and use
Access data is saved in a protocol file every time a page is opened. The school currently uses the services of SmarterStats and Google Analytics. The saved information comprises the following data:

- Your IP address, by which your computer can be identified,
- The remote host (name and IP address of the computer that opens the page),
- The time, status, amount of data transferred and the page from which you accessed our website (referrer),
- The product and version of the internet browser used (user agent).

The school uses protocol data (logs) anonymously without attribution or reference to your person for the purpose of statistical analysis. The school can, for example, document on which days and at which times websites are used particularly intensively, which pages are accessed more regularly and where errors occur. The access information saved in protocol files are not attached to single users. The analysis of these files is performed to allow use of the website (connection establishment), system security, technical administration of the net infrastructure and optimization of online content. IP addresses are only analyzed in the case of an attack on the net infrastructure of Hanns Eisler School of Music Berlin.

In other cases, personal data are not analyzed unless you give express permission for further analysis.

An individual deactivation of SmarterStats and Google Analytics can be performed on the following pages http://portal.smartertools.com/KB/a174/exclude-an-ip-address-from-smarterstats.aspx and https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
