For the purposes of the EU General Data Protection Regulation, the party responsible for processing the data is Bayerische KI-Agentur, Museumsinsel 1, 80538 Munich, Germany(Imprint).

Retrieval of network pages

When a page or subpage of is accessed, the web server temporarily stores the following information:

  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Date and time of access
  • Name, URL and transferred data volume of the retrieved file
  • Access status (requested file transferred, not found, etc.)
  • Recognition data of the browser and operating system used (if transmitted by the requesting web browser)
  • Web page from which the access was made (if transmitted by the requesting web browser)

These entries are continuously evaluated automatically in order to detect attacks on the web servers and react accordingly. In individual cases, i.e. in the case of reported malfunctions, errors and security incidents, a manual analysis is carried out. The legal basis arises from the obligation to ensure the IT security of a website pursuant to Section 13 para. 7 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) as well as from the general duty and state task of IT security pursuant to Art. 11 Para. 1 p. 1 BayEGovG.

Entries older than seven days are anonymized by shortening the IP address. The anonymized data is used to create access statistics.

The IP addresses contained in the entries are not merged with other databases, so that no conclusions can be drawn about individual persons.

On the net pages of the AI agency session identifiers (so-called “session cookies”) may be used. The session identifiers are only used to provide the functions offered on these pages and are not used to track user behavior.
