When you call up the Trustbadge, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which also contains your IP address, the date and time of the call, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call. Individual access data are stored in a security database for the analysis of security vulnerabilities. The log files are automatically deleted no later than 90 days after creation.

This is necessary for the fulfillment of our and Trusted Shops’ predominant legitimate interests in the provision of the buyer protection linked to the specific order and the transactional evaluation services according to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit.f GDPR. Further details, including the objection, can be found in the Trusted Shops data protection declaration linked above and in the Trustbadge.
