4. Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable person is a natural person who can be identified, either directly or indirectly, in particular by an identifier like a name, identification number, location details, an online identifier or one or more distinctive features.

5. Collected data, purposes and lawful basis of data processing

Every time a user accesses one of the F&R website pages and every time a file is displayed, data relating to this process is stored in a log file. Depending on the access protocol used, the data log may record the following information:

  • IP address of the device requesting access
  • Name of the file requested
  • Date and time of the request
  • Access modes/functions requested by the user’s device
  • Access status of the web server
  • The URL from which the file was requested
  • Operating system, type of browser and/or browser settings.

No user profiles are created that associate IP addresses with personal data unless otherwise expressly stated in this privacy notice.

The data collected is used exclusively for the purposes of providing content, detecting and tracking any unauthorised access or access attempts to our web server, and for the analysis of website statistics like number of visitors and page popularity. Data analysis is carried out by authorised F&R employees only.

6. Use of Cookies

We use cookies on our website to improve your browsing experience, subject to your consent or in cases of technical necessity.
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and allow your Internet browser to be recognised. Internet browsers commonly in use are set to automatically accept cookies. However, you can change your browser’s setting at any time to be notified about the use of cookies or to prevent them from being downloaded onto your device altogether.
We do not use cookie data to personally identify you.
Persistent cookies are stored on your computer for 7 days; we use them to enhance your browsing experience on our website after your current visit and to display personalised content for you. If you do not wish to have persistent cookies set on your device, you can disable them by changing your browser settings. Please refer to the help function in the menu bar of your browser for detailed instructions. Deactivating permanent cookies will not affect the usability of our website.
Session cookies are only stored on your device until your current browser session is closed; they enable you to use our website’s functions without limitations for the time of your current visit. The data collected by session cookies is anonymised, meaning that it does not make you personally identifiable.
If you do not wish to have session cookies set on your device, you can disable them by changing your browser settings. Please refer to the help function in the menu bar of your browser for detailed instructions. However, if you choose to disable session cookies we cannot guarantee that you will be able to make full use of all our website’s functions.

7. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics tool provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). The cookie-generated information about your use of this website is usually transferred to and stored on a Google server in the USA. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will mask part of the IP address of users located in Member States of the European Union or in other Countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
In exceptional cases, the full IP address may be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and masked there for anonymisation. Google will use that information on behalf of the administrator of this website to analyse and compile reports on users’ activity and to provide the administrator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser to Google Analytics will not be associated with other Google data. If you do not wish cookies to be stored on your device, you may disable them at any time by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing cookie-generated data relating to your use of this website (including your IP address) by installing the dedicated browser plug-in available at the following link: Further details on Google’s terms of service and privacy policy can be found here: and here: Please be informed that the "anonymizeIp" function has been integrated into our website to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (IP masking).

8. Free text fields: Contact form and Comment function

Personal data provided by filling in the contact forms or using the comment function on this website is transmitted to F&R. When using the comment function, comments are displayed on this website along with the user’s name.
The personal data you provide is transmitted to us in encrypted form via a secure connection. To do so, we use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer), i.e. a state-of-the-art security protocol with 256-bit encryption. SSL encryption (recognisable by the “https://” in the browser’s address bar and a lock icon in the status bar) is a protocol developed for encrypting data during transmission from a web server to a browser. This way, the user’s personal data is SSL-encrypted when transmitted to our server.

9. Automated decision making/Profiling

We do not undertake automated decision making or profiling activities.
