Technical operation

The web ser­ver of the Bava­ri­an Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Agen­cy is ope­ra­ted by

1&1 Inter­net SE
Elgen­dor­fer Str. 57
56410 Mon­ta­baur


When you access this or any other page on the site, you trans­fer data via your Inter­net brow­ser to our web ser­ver. The fol­lowing data is recor­ded during an ongo­ing con­nec­tion for the pur­po­ses of the com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on bet­ween your brow­ser and our web ser­ver:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Name of the reques­ted file
  • Page from which the file was reques­ted
  • Access sta­tus (trans­fer file, file not found, etc.)
  • Web brow­ser and ope­ra­ting sys­tem used
  • Com­ple­te IP address of the reques­ting com­pu­ter
  • Data quan­ti­ty trans­fer­red

This data is saved by us for secu­ri­ty rea­sons, in par­ti­cu­lar to defend against attemp­ted attacks on our web ser­ver. After seven days at the latest, the data is anony­mi­sed by shor­tening the IPv4 address at domain level, so that it is no lon­ger pos­si­ble to estab­lish a con­nec­tion to indi­vi­du­al users. After nine weeks at the latest, the data is dele­ted com­ple­te­ly. The data is used exclu­si­ve­ly for this pur­po­se and, in anony­mi­sed form, for sta­tis­ti­cal pur­po­ses; it is not com­pa­red with other data­ba­ses or pas­sed on to third par­ties, eit­her in who­le or in part.


When you access this web­site, coo­kies (small files) are saved to your hard disk; the­se are valid for the dura­ti­on of your visit to our web­site. We use the­se exclu­si­ve­ly to iden­ti­fy you during your visit to our site. Most brow­sers are set up so that you accept the use of coo­kies, howe­ver this func­tion can be tur­ned off, eit­her for the cur­rent ses­si­on or per­ma­nent­ly, in the brow­ser set­tings. At the end of your ses­si­on, the­se coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted again from your hard disk.

Active components

Acti­ve com­pon­ents, such as Java­script and Flash are used in the infor­ma­ti­on offe­ring of the Bava­ri­an Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Agen­cy. You can turn this func­tion off in your brow­ser set­tings.

Evaluation of user behaviour (web tracking systems)

We use pro­grams to eva­lua­te user beha­viour but only in anony­mi­sed form. Your IP address is anony­mi­sed first for this and only then is it eva­lua­ted by us. You can turn this func­tion off in your brow­ser set­tings.

Collecting other data

The Bava­ri­an Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on Agen­cy web­site offers users the oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­ta­ct them by ent­e­ring per­so­nal or busi­ness details (e-mail addres­ses, names, addres­ses). The use of such ser­vices by the user is ent­i­re­ly and express­ly vol­un­ta­ry.

In any event, the per­so­nal data ent­e­red (in par­ti­cu­lar name, e-mail address) will only be used to send the desi­red infor­ma­ti­on or for any other pur­po­ses expli­ci­tly set out in the indi­vi­du­al form, and will not be pas­sed on to third par­ties.


Unen­cryp­ted infor­ma­ti­on that you send by e-mail can be inter­cep­ted and read by third par­ties during trans­mis­si­on. Gene­ral­ly, we can­not check your iden­ti­ty eit­her and do not know who is behind an e-mail address. Legal­ly secu­re com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on by simp­le e-mail is the­re­fo­re not gua­ran­te­ed. Like many e-mail pro­vi­ders, we use fil­ters to eli­mi­na­te unwan­ted adver­ti­sing (“spam fil­ters”), which in rare cases may also inad­vertent­ly auto­ma­ti­cal­ly cate­go­ri­se nor­mal e-mails as spam and dele­te them. E-mails con­tai­ning mal­wa­re (“viru­ses”) are clea­ned of the mali­cious code whe­re­ver pos­si­ble; other­wi­se they are dele­ted.

Unfor­tu­n­a­te­ly, we can­not work with encryp­ted e-mails as yet.
