STORAGE OF IP ADDRESSES AND COOKIES

In order to access SCRI BMST websites, registration of the IP address is required for a short period of time. The IP address is the globally valid, unique identification of a computer that consists of four number blocks separated by dots. In general, you will not use an IP address that remains the same as a private user because your provider only allocates this address to you temporarily for each session. Nevertheless, a clear allocation of the user data via this feature is, in principle, possible for static IP addresses. Our web server stores IP addresses for a maximum period of 24 hours. Afterwards, the access data will be anonymised.
