1.1. Access to the internet service
In case of using the internet service of the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt (LBA) and of loading files, data of this operation are temporarily stored and processed in a log file.

These are:

  • the anonymized IP address. The IP address of the accessing host system is exclusively stored in the following way: In case of storing the address, the last two bytes are put to zero (e.g. xxx.xxx.0.0),
  • the browser,
  • the log,
  • the operating system of the inquiring person
  • the website, from which the user is visiting the LBA-site,
  • the websites of the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt that are visited,
  • a potential error code of the inquiry,
  • the data quantity transmitted,
  • the time of the internet visit.

These data are only evaluated for statistical purposes and in order to improve the internet service; afterwards they will be deleted. There is no further use of these data nor do we pass them on to a third party.

1.1. Use and passing on of your data
It is your decision which kind of data you entrust to us. If, however, you ask for a service by e-mail, we need your name and contact details. Except as otherwise explicitly stated, these data are at the most passed on internally to the competent department of the LBA.

1.3. Exclusion of liability
The access and the use of the internet service of the LBA are at the own risk of the user. Insofar, the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt is neither responsible nor does it assume any liability for damages, e.g. for direct, indirect or accidental damages, for damages exactly defined in advance or for resulting damages having supposedly appeared due to the access to or in relation with the access to and/or the use of the internet service of the LBA. The Luftfahrt-Bundesamt does not assume any liability for the contents and the availability of the websites of a third party reached via external links of our information service.
