The following data is automatically collected each time you access our website: the IP address of the device used to access the site; Date and time of access; Title of the website visited and the title of the website from which the further content is retrieved (so-called referrer URL), technical details such as access status and possibly error codes; technical information about the browser used and the operating system of the device used. Legal basis of this data processing is art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. f) GDPR, based on our legitimate interest to enable you to use our web content and to ensure the stability and security of our systems. In addition, for the purposes described above, the above-mentioned data is temporarily stored in internal log files in order to generate statistical information on the use of our website in order to further develop our website with regard to the usage habits of our visitors (eg if the share of mobile devices with which the pages are retrieved) and to maintain our website in general administrative. This data processing is carried out to safeguard our above-mentioned legitimate interests on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR. The information stored in the log files does not allow any direct inference to your person - in particular, we store the IP addresses only in abbreviated form. The log files are stored for 7 days and then deleted automatically.

5. Use of cookies. For some of our services it is necessary that we use so-called cookies. A cookie is a text file that is stored either temporarily ("session cookies") or longer term ("persistent cookies") on your device. Cookies are not used to run programs or to load viruses onto your computer. Instead, the main purpose of cookies is to provide you with a tailored offer and to make the use of the service as time-saving as possible. Most browsers are set by default to accept cookies. However, you can change your browser settings to refuse cookies or save them only with prior consent. If you reject cookies, some features of our website may be of limited use. We use cookies to personalize and optimize your user experience. We mainly use session cookies, which are deleted when you quit the browser. Session cookies are used for login authentication and load balancing. For example, we use persistent cookies to save your language settings or to indicate that you have seen information placed on our website so that it will not be displayed again the next time you visit the website. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may differ depending on the cookie. These data processing operations are based on our legitimate interests in making the experience of using our website as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. The legal basis is art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

6. Analysis and Advertising. In order to improve our website, we use different technologies for analyzing the usage behavior and evaluation of the associated data. The data collected may include, in particular, the IP address of the terminal, the date and time of access, the identification number of a cookie, the device identifier of mobile devices, and technical information about the browser and the operating system. However, the collected data are stored exclusively pseudonym, so that no direct conclusions about your person are possible. These data are also processed for marketing purposes and thus provide you with individualized advertising messages, e.g. in the form of banners and advertisements on our website. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, based on our above-mentioned legitimate interests. In the following section, we would like to explain more about these technologies and their providers.

Matomo. We use Matomo (formerly Piwik) for the usage analysis and subsequent statistical analysis on our website. As is customary on a number of websites, a cookie is set for this purpose and information about the use of the website is collected by us in a pseudonym. We can understand how our users are moving through our website and which pages are accessed in which order. The user remains unrecognized for us. Entries in text fields, such as e-mail addresses, names or passwords are not recorded. IP addresses are immediately anonymized, so that even here an assignment is not possible. Data from this usage analysis will not be merged with other data about you at WestLotto. The website usage information is used to compile statistics on the use of the website and to use this information to further develop and design the website as needed. The information will not be passed on to third parties. Your visit to this website is currently covered by the Matomo web analytics. You can deactivate the acquisition via the following setting. In this case, a so-called "Do-Not-Track-Cookie" is stored on your device that prevents the collection of usage data in the future. If you delete your cookies on your device or visit our website with another device, you will need to rerun the opt-out. Alternatively, you can also use the "Do-Not-Track" function of your browser.

7. Receiver. Unless otherwise stated in this privacy policy, your data will be processed exclusively by WestLotto and will not be disclosed to third parties. Exceptions apply to cases where the legislator requires or foresees the transfer of the data (for example, as part of a tax audit by the tax authorities or under the Money Laundering Act). In certain cases, sharing your information with third parties is also required to safeguard your or our interests or fulfill our contractual obligations. In particular, such disclosure occurs when we use external service providers. In these cases, the service provider is bound by instructions and the service provider receives data only to the extent and for the period required for the provision of the services. This is particularly the case for identification, payment processing and analysis and advertising.

8. Your Rights. You have the right at any time to request an overview of the data stored about your person. If data stored with us should be wrong or out of date, you have the right to have this data corrected. You may also request the deletion of your data. If deletion is not possible due to other legal regulations (for example due to the storage requirements under the Money Laundering Act or the principles of proper accounting), the data will be blocked, so that they are only available for this legal purpose. You may also restrict the processing of your personal data, if e.g. the accuracy of the data on your part is doubted. You have the right to data portability, so upon your request, we will send you a digital copy of the personal information you provide. You also have the right to complain to the data protection supervisory authority responsible for WestLotto (The State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information North Rhine-Westphalia, PO Box 20 04 44.40102 Dusseldorf). You can also contact the data protection authority at your place of residence, which will then forward your request to the competent authority.
