The protection and security of the personal data of visitors to our website and online services is important to us. We treat your data carefully and confidentially in terms with the Federal Data Protection Act and the German Telemedia Act as well as the General Data Protection Regulation and will process your personal data only to the extent described in this privacy statement.
Personal data is collected on our pages and in forms, (for example name or email addresses), only insofar as it is consistent with the objectives outlined here. This data is never provided to third parties.
General IT security remarks
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet can have security gaps. An absolute protection of the data against access by third parties is technically not possible. We protect your data as well as it is possible for us to do so. These pages use an SSL encryption for security and to protect the transfer of confidential content, such as data that you send to us via forms. You can recognise an encrypted connection from the address line of the browser when "http://" changes to "https://" and from the lock symbol on your browser line. When the SSL encryption is activated the data that you transfer to us are particularly secured.
To operate our website we do not use our own server but rather that of a service provider, we have commissioned (so-called Managed Hosting):
wegewerk GmbH, Saarbrücker Straße 24, 10405 Berlin
Wegewerk, manages the appearance of our website and contracts First Colo GmbH, Freseniusstr 31h, 81247 Munich with the hosting of our website. We have a data processing agreement with Wegewerk , which meets the requirements of Art. 28 Basic Data Protection Regulation and includes this subcontractor.
What personal data do we collect?
Personal data is any information that allows conclusions to be drawn about your identity. We collect personal data only when you provide this to us voluntarily. Exceptions are the IP address, the access time, Referrer URL and browser type, which are automatically transmitted. Technically, a website cannot be accessed without the transfer of an IP address, as it is through the IP address that the transfer of data between the calling terminal device and the server of the website being contacted is made possible.
If we collect personal data from you and process it further, without it being anonymised, we assess this as a special categories of personal data and request explicit permission for the processing of this data. This assessment is based on the possibility that conclusions could be drawn about your political opinion. You can withdraw your permission for the processing of your personal data at any time by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Depending on your use of our Internet offering, the following data will be collected:
When you visit our website, your IP address as well as the date, URL accessed, size of the transferand browser type are stored for 30 days as part of our server log files.
