Personal Data Processed for Accessing the Service

What data are processed?

Simply by accessing the Service, GRESOL gathers the IP address and other data related to the connection and its origin. An IP address is a code identifying the User’s internet connection at a specific time. Only the User’s internet access provider can identify the subscriber it has assigned to an IP address at a specific time. Due to the nature of the server that supports the Service, the User’s IP address is automatically registered along with the date and time of access.

What are these data used for?

These data are only used to manage normal use of the Service and to perform statistical analysis in relation to use of the Service.

Recipients of these data

GRESOL does not provide this information to any third parties unless obliged to do so by current legislation (for example, an official request within the framework of a police investigation).
