Purposes of data processing by the responsible authority and third parties
We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties for purposes other than those mentioned. We will only disclose your personal data to third parties if:
- you have given your express consent,
- processing is necessary to fulfill a contract agreed with you,
- processing is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation,
processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not having your data disclosed.
Deleting and blocking data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. Therefore, we store your personal data only as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes mentioned here or as required according to the various storage periods determined by the competent legal authorities. Once the purpose in question becomes no longer current or the storage period expires, the corresponding data will be blocked or deleted as required by law.
Collection of general information when you visit our website
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, among other things, the type of browser used, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, and other similar data. It is solely information that cannot be connected to you as an individual.
This information is produced automatically during Internet use and is required for technical reasons so that the requested web content can be correctly displayed. It is processed for the following purposes in particular:
- Ensuring smooth connection to the website,
- Ensuring our website works properly,
- Evaluation of system security and stability and
- for other administrative purposes.
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest arising from the aforementioned purposes of data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. The only recipients of the data are the responsible body and, if applicable, the external processor.
Anonymous information of this kind can be statistically analyzed in order to improve our website and its underlying technology.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. When this happens, we automatically receive certain data, such as your IP address, the browser used, the operating system on your computer, and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Based on the information contained in the cookies, we can simplify navigation for you and ensure that our website displays correctly.
The information we collect will never be forwarded to third parties or linked to your personal data without your explicit consent.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g., SSL) via HTTPS.
Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)
In order to present our contents correctly and in a graphically appealing way across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://fonts.google.com) on this website. Google Web Fonts are loaded into your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font.
Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. In theory, it is possible – but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.
Use of Google Maps
This website uses the API of Google Maps for the display of geographical information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of map functions by visitors. For more information about how Google processes your information, please see Google Privacy Notices. There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the Data Protection Center.
Detailed instructions for managing your own data in connection with Google products can be found here.
Embedded YouTube videos
We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of those plug-ins is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. As soon as you visit a page with a YouTube plug-in, a connection to YouTube servers will be established. This will inform YouTube which pages you are visiting. When you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can associate your browsing habits with you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you do not have to deal with such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block cookies from being saved in your browser.
Further information on data protection at “YouTube” can be found in the provider’s data protection policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=en
