The protection and security of our users' data is important to us. We have therefore designed our website and our business processes in such a way that as little personal data as possible is collected or processed.

Energy Codes and Services GmbH
Personal data such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address are only collected if you provide this information voluntarily, e.g. when registering as a contact person or via the contact form.
Your voluntarily provided data will only be used for the purpose for which you have given it to us. Only if you have given your consent for use in the context of further offers or for marketing purposes, your data will also be used for these purposes.
When you use our website, the web server always records the following information in the server log files for security reasons: IP, client information (browser and operating system) and the URL request. This data is not linked to other data.
In case of abuse attempts or server errors, however, it may be possible that a so-called log file is started for error analysis. In detail, the IP address, the specific address of the page accessed, if applicable the page from which you reached us (link source), the transmitted browser ID, as well as the system date and time of the page visit are recorded here. This data is deleted from our servers immediately after the error has been corrected and is used exclusively to analyze the error. ECS is not able to link the log data with a person.
When contacting ECS (for example via contact form or e-mail), the user's details are stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
