Acquisition of general information
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of websites requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your hard drive from a website server. Through this we automatically receive certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system about your computer and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. With the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable the correct display of our websites.
Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
Registration on our website
When registering to use our personalised services, some personal data is collected, such as name, address, contact and communication data such as telephone number and e-mail address. If you are registered, you can access content and services that we only offer to registered users. Registered users also have the option of changing or deleting the data provided during registration at any time if necessary. Of course, we will also provide you with information about the personal data we have stored about you at any time. We will also be pleased to correct or delete this data at your request, provided that there are no legal obligations to retain it. To contact us in this context, please use the contact data given at the end of this data protection declaration.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
When registering to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be informed by e-mail about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (for example, changes to the newsletter offer or technical circumstances).
We use rapidmail to send our newsletter. The provider is rapidmail GmbH, Wentzingerstraße, 21, 79106 Freiburg, Germany. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter is stored on rapidmail's servers in Germany. If you do not want any analysis by rapidmail, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.
For the purpose of analysis, the e-mails sent with rapidmail contain a so-called tracking pixel, which connects to the servers of rapidmail when the e-mail is opened. In this way, it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened. Furthermore, with the help of rapidmail, we can determine whether and which links in the newsletter message are clicked. All links in the e-mail are so-called tracking links, with which your clicks can be counted. Depending on the font used to design the respective newsletter, a connection to external servers such as Google Fonts takes place.
For an effective registration, we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that a registration is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the "double-opt-in" procedure. After registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other people's e-mail addresses. When you register for the newsletter, your IP address and the date and time of registration are stored. The data will be used exclusively for the newsletter dispatch.
Contact with the IFSH
If you contact us by e-mail, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions.
Deletion or blocking of the data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as required by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to apply or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Use of MATOMO
This website uses MATOMO (formerly Piwik), an open source software for statistical analysis of visitor access. Matomo uses so-called "cookies", text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is stored on a server in Germany.
The IP address is anonymised immediately after processing and before it is saved. You have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by changing the settings of your browser software. We would like to point out that with the appropriate settings, not all functions of this website may be available.
Embedded YouTube videos
On some of our websites we embed Youtube videos. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is established to Youtube servers. This tells Youtube which pages you visit. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account before.
If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to expect such cookies when watching YouTube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.
Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection
You have the right to receive information about your personal data stored with us at any time. You also have the right to correction, blocking or, apart from the prescribed data storage for business purposes, deletion of your personal data. Please contact our data protection officer for this purpose. You will find the contact details at the bottom.
In order that a block of data can be considered at any time, this data must be kept in a block file for control purposes. You can also request the deletion of the data, as long as there is no legal archiving obligation. If such an obligation exists, we will block your data upon request.
You can make changes or withdraw your consent by notifying us accordingly with effect for the future.
Changes to our data protection regulations
We reserve the right to amend this data protection declaration from time to time so that it always meets current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration then applies to your next visit.
