IV) COLLECTION AND STORAGE OF PERSONAL DATA AND THE NATURE AND PURPOSE OF THEIR USE
1. When visting our website
a. When accessing our website on a terminal device, the browser you are using will automatically send information to our website's server. This information will be temporarily stored in a so-called log file. Without your intervention, the following information will be captured and stored until it is automatically deleted, usually after one week:
- IP address
- Date and time of access
- Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of the query (specific page)
- Access status / HTTP status code
- Data volume transferred in each case
- Website from which the request originates
- Operating system and its interface
- Language and version of the browser software
b. We process the specified data for the following purposes:
- To ensure a smooth connection buildup of the website
- To ensure the convenient use of our website
- To evaluate system safety and stability
- To clarify any abusive page accesses (DoS/DDoS attacks or similar) if any
- For further administrative purposes
c. The legal basis for this data processing is art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO (i.e. General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR). Our legitimate interest arises from the aforementioned purposes for collecting your data. In general, we do not use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you as a person. However, we reserve the right to do so, at most, should it be necessary to clarify abusive website accesses.
2. When contacting us / ordering documents
a. If you have questions of any kind, including ordering documents, we offer you the possibility of contacting us via phone or e-mail. In addition, you may also use a contact form provided on our website. When using this form, a valid e-mail address is required, your name, as well as the indication of your company. Thus, we know who the request is from and will be able to answer it.
b. Further information like address data, phone number, and the message itself goes beyond what is actually required. With this data provided by you, an encrypted e-mail is generated directly – without intermediate storage – to email@example.com, which you transmit to us by sending it. Please note that the e-mail is solely subject to so-called transport encryption. Thus, confidential data should not be sent via this channel.
c. Data processing activities for the purpose of contacting us are based on art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily given consent, resp. for (pre-)contractual queries (e.g. with regard to future membership, ordering of documents) on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. The data we collect and process in the framework of your contacting us is deleted once your query has been dealt with and, if applicable, after the statutory retention periods have expired.
a. After submitting your consent, you may subscribe to our newsletter, which will provide you with our current interesting offers. The products and services advertised are listed in the declaration of consent.
b. The subscription process for our newsletter uses the so-called double opt-in process. This means that after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided in which we ask you to confirm that you would like to receive the newsletter. If you fail to confirm your registration within 72 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. Furthermore, we will store the IP addresses you used and the points in time at which you registered and confirmed your registration. The purpose of this process is to prove your registration and, if applicable, to enable us to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.
c. The only mandatory information for receiving the newsletter is your e-mail address. [The provision of further, separately marked data is voluntary and will be used to address you personally.]
d. Following your confirmation, we will save your e-mail address for the purpose of sending you our newsletter. The legal basis for this is art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR.
e. You may withdraw your consent to us sending you our newsletter anytime and thus unsubscribe from our newsletter. You may declare your revocation by either clicking the link provided in every newsletter e-mail, by using this form on the website, via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by sending a message to the contact details provided in the legal notice (i.e. "Impressum").
4. Registration for symposia and training courses
If you register for training courses or symposia, the following data will be requested:
Your chosen date resp. event location, your company, your name, position, address, and e-mail address. The entry of a phone number or message is voluntary. Please do not send any confidential data here either.
The data is processed in accordance with art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR in the context of the reservation resp. booking of a training or symposium appointment. The data is stored for 10 years in accordance with the statutory retention obligation.
Cookies are primarily used in the field of online marketing, for example, to serve personalised advertising. The keyword "targeting" summarises those activities that are intended to enable the target group-oriented display of advertising on web pages. A continuation of this advertising strategy is the so-called retargeting, in which a provider resp. advertiser marks the customer when he visits the company's own homepage by means of a tracking cookie and follows him on his excursion through the internet. The company's own advertising can then be regularly displayed as an ad banner on external pages to remind the customer of its own products and services.
We reserve the right to use so-called targeting on our site. You have two options to prevent this:
You can prevent cookies from being saved in your browser. The procedure varies depending on the browser. In this case, your settings apply to every page you visit.
You use the cookie banner resp. cookie consent provided by us when you call up our website, with which you are enabled to either accept cookies, only allow necessary cookies or to select or deselect individual cookies. The cookie banner can be called up again any time via the "Cookie settings" link.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Please refer to any special explanations regarding a cookie in explicit places of use elsewhere in this data protection declaration or from dialogue / banner messages (e.g. cookie notice when Google products are used by banners).
4.1 Cookies applied:
4.2 Google services
We use various services of the Google company on our website. These services communicate with each other within the Google company and accordingly also evaluate data that you have permitted for tracking.
Below you will find all the Google services we use. The provider of all services is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"):
Google Ireland Limited
The use of all Google services on this website and the processing of data following consent are carried out on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
For the processing and storage of data, Google has signed a standard contractual clause (art. 46 para. 2 and 3 GDPR).
You will find more information on this under "Google Controller Data Protection Terms" (information in English).
For integrating and providing videos, we utilize "YouTube" on our website. We use YouTube in extended data protection mode ("YouTube NoCookie"). According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. The disclosure of data to YouTube partners, however, is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. Thus, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network – regardless of whether you watch a video.
As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, after starting a video, YouTube may store various cookies on your end device or utilize comparable recognition technologies (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way, YouTube can obtain information on visitors of this website. This information is used, among others, in order to capture video statistics, improve user-friendliness, and prevent fraud attempts.
Further data processing operations may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no control.
4.2.2 YouTube NoCookie
YouTube NoCookie is the extended privacy mode of YouTube. It is a piece of code through which we embed our YouTube videos on our website. YouTube NoCookie prevents personal data from being shared with third parties (such as advertising services), but not the collection of some user data through cookies created by YouTube. This data is passed on to certain Google servers.
4.2.3 YouTube Images
For the display of various images of our YouTube channel, such as thumbnails or our logo, YouTube uses YouTube Images in the background.
4.2.4 Google Photos
Google Photos is a service for displaying images like e.g. the figurative mark of our logo in connection with other Google services like e.g. YouTube.
4.2.5 Google Fonts
For the uniform display of fonts, this website uses so-called web fonts provided by Google. When you visit a page, your browser will load the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. If your browser does not support web fonts or you do not consent, a standard font from your computer will be used.
With Matomo, we operate a web analytics tool on our server that collects and evaluates data regarding the behaviour of visitors to our website. Based on these findings, we can further improve our website. No data is transferred to third parties.
The information generated by the cookie about the use of the website is stored on our server. The IP address is anonymised before storage.
The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is not passed on to third parties.
In order to ensure that requests are not made by bots but by you as a user, we use a so-called captcha module. For confirmation, you must enter the code here that is displayed and cannot be recognised by machines.
The service provider for hCaptcha is the US company Intuition Machines Inc., 350 Alabama St, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA.
As the legal basis for the transfer, the provider uses the EU standard contractual clauses. It is not certified with the EU-US Data Privacy Framework as of August 2023.
Regarding the storage period, the provider states: Information collected through technical means such as cookies, web page counters, and other analytics tools is discarded as soon as possible but may be retained for a limited period of up to one year after the cookie expires, typically in anonymised and aggregated form, unless we identify potential misuse of our service.
Matterport offers a technology for capturing spaces and objects in 3D, for visualising and sharing them. This is used on our website for displaying the 3D visualisations.
Matterport is a service of Matterport, Inc., 352 E. Java Dr., Sunnyvale, CA 94089, USA. Matterport's representative in Europe in terms of data protection is the European Data Protection Office, Avenue, Huart Hamoir 71, 1030 Brussels, Belgium (https://edpo.com/gdpr-data-request/).
You only need this service if you want to use the visualisations. Matterport collects the following data when you use the service: IP address, device and browser type, visits to previous websites, identifiers associated with the devices.
The transfer to the USA is legitimised via EU standard contractual clauses.
V) SSL ENCRYPTION
For security reasons and in order to protect the transmission of confidential content such as enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser displays "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
VI) LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
For expedient reasons and for further information, our websites may contain links to other websites. These websites may be operated independently of us. Linked websites may have their own privacy statements or policies, which you should definitely review. If linked websites are not owned or managed by us, we are not responsible for the content of those websites, their use or their privacy practices, even if you reach those websites directly from ours.
VII) DATA STORAGE / DELETION
Unless otherwise specified in the detailed descriptions of the offers, we process and store your personal data as long as it is required for the fulfilment of our contractual and legal obligations. Your personal data is regularly deleted or blocked when it is no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or legal obligations, you have exercised your right of deletion, all mutual claims have been fulfilled, and there are no other legal retention obligations or legal justification bases for storage.
