Surfing on the Internet generates a large amount of data. Normally, however, Deutsche Telekom only saves the data that is relevant for billing. We delete this data after three months at most.
What Internet data do we store?
If you use a flat rate, we do not save any data for billing, but only general traffic data such usage times. This data is saved up to seven days after the connection is ended. If your rate has a limit, the data volume, usage times and your IP address are associated to your contract data. An exception is when misuse of our services has to be investigated. We do not save your surfing habits.
How do we use Internet data?
Your data lets us calculate when your contractually agreed volume limit (if any) is exhausted. The IP address is only saved to detect abuse, for example, caused by spam, viruses or worms.
In addition, it enables us to identify and correct disruptions in our network at an early stage. To do so, we save your IP address for seven days after the connection is ended.
Is data passed on to third parties?
This data is only passed on to third parties when ordered by a court; otherwise it is not.
