Whenever you access the servers of the IEA, relevant access data are logged. These data are stored only for the purposes of identifying and tracking nonpermitted access or any attempts of accessing the IEA servers without permission. This stored information is not used for any purposes other than data security. No statistical analyses are made from nonanonymized data. Logged data are saved for a maximum duration of six months and will be deleted afterwards.
Depending on the access log used, the log file will include information with the following contents:

  • Date and time of the request
  • desired access method / function from the requesting computer
  • Input values transmitted by the requesting computer (file name, ...)
  • Access status of the webserver (file transfer, file not found, command not executed, etc.)
  • Name of the requested file


Active Components

In general, the information offered by the IEA can also be used with browsers where Java-Applets, Active-X-Controls, and cookies are disabled. Should functionality be limited considerably as a result, a corresponding notice will be given.


Email Security

When sending an e-mail to the IEA, the e-mail address of the sender is used only for correspondence with the particular sender. When sending an e-mail with content worthy of protection, we strongly recommend encrypting it in order to prevent unauthorized notice or falsification on the transmission path. The type of encryption must be coordinated with the IEA. Should the sender not wish to receive an answer via e-mail, another way of communication must be mentioned explicitly.



The basic use of the website is usually possible without cookies. However, we cannot exclude a limitation of the use of the website or a diminished user-friendliness.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.
