The following notes provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit this website. Personal data is any data by which you can be personally identified. For detailed information on data protection, please refer to our data protection declaration listed below this text.
Data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find his contact details in the section “Note on the responsible party” in this data protection declaration.
On the one hand, your data is collected by you providing it to us. This can be, for example, data that you enter in a contact form.
Other data is collected automatically or after your consent when you visit the website by our IT systems. This is mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of page view). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter this website.
Some of the data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior.
You have the right at any time to receive information free of charge about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have a right to request the correction or deletion of this data. If you have given your consent to data processing, you can revoke this consent at any time for the future. You also have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data under certain circumstances. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of data protection, you can contact us at any time.
When visiting this website, your surfing behavior may be statistically analyzed. This is done via so-called analysis programs.
We host the content of our website with the following provider:
The provider is Strato AG, Otto-Ostrowski-Straße 7, 10249 Berlin (hereinafter “Strato”). When you visit our website, Strato collects various log files including your IP addresses.
The use of Strato is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in the most reliable presentation of our website. If a corresponding consent has been requested, processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO and Section 25 (1) TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user’s terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) as defined by the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time.
We have concluded an order processing agreement (AVV) for the use of the above-mentioned service. This is a contract required by data protection law, which ensures that this processes the personal data of our website visitors only according to our instructions and in compliance with the DSGVO.
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
The responsible party for data processing on this website is:
Dr. Claude-Hélène Mayer
Ernst-Ruhstrat-Str. 8, 37079 Göttingen, Germany
Phone: +49 160 96837366
The controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses or similar).
Unless a more specific storage period has been stated within this data protection declaration, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for the data processing no longer applies. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the data will be deleted once these reasons no longer apply.
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA ARE PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA CONCERNING YOU FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING INSOFAR AS IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 21 (2) DSGVO).
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects shall have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
Information, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction or deletion of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time.
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For this purpose, you can contact us at any time. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Our Internet pages use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small data packets and do not cause any damage to your terminal device. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your terminal device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself or until they are automatically deleted by your web browser.
Cookies can originate from us (first-party cookies) or from third-party companies (so-called third-party cookies). Third-party cookies enable the integration of certain services of third-party companies within websites (e.g. cookies for processing payment services).
Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping cart function or the display of videos). Other cookies may be used to evaluate user behavior or for advertising purposes.
Cookies that are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process, to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. for the shopping cart function) or to optimize the website (e.g. cookies to measure the web audience) (necessary cookies) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO, unless another legal basis is specified. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing necessary cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If consent to the storage of cookies and comparable recognition technologies has been requested, processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of this consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG); consent can be revoked at any time.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you disable cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
browser type and browser version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of its website – for this purpose, the server log files must be collected.
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your inquiry including all resulting personal data (name, inquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO, if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests sent to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO) if this has been requested; the consent can be revoked at any time.
The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular legal retention periods – remain unaffected.
We also offer you the option of submitting your requests via the chat service WhatsApp and receiving corresponding feedback on your request via WhatsApp. The operator of this service is WhatsApp Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“WhatsApp”), a subsidiary of Facebook. Through your communication with us via WhatsApp, both we and WhatsApp receive your phone number and the information that you have contacted us.
We process your telephone number, your name and other data provided by you and the content of your request or message in order to process your request and answer any queries you may have.
The basis for this processing and the transmission to WhatsApp in this context is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 b) DSGVO, insofar as your request concerns an existing contractual relationship with us or serves to initiate such a contractual relationship. Otherwise, this data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) DSGVO, whereby our legitimate interest is the careful processing of your respective request. We take your interests into account by the fact that communication via WhatsApp only exists as an additional option. Of course, you can also contact us by other means, for example by phone call, email or via our contact form on the website, as described earlier in this section.
This website uses the WP Statistics analysis tool to statistically evaluate visitor traffic. Provider is Veronalabs, Tatari 64, 10134, Tallinn, Estonia (https://veronalabs.com).
WP Statistics allows us to analyze the use of our website. WP Statistics collects, among other things, log files (IP address, referrer, browser used, origin of the user, search engine used) and actions that website visitors have taken on the page (e.g. clicks and views).
The data collected with WP Statistics is stored exclusively on our own server.
The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in the anonymized analysis of user behavior in order to optimize both our website and our advertising. Insofar as a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user’s terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) as defined by the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time. We use WP Statistics with anonymized IP. Your IP address is shortened so that it can no longer be assigned to you directly.
We use the Zoom tool to conduct conference calls, online meetings, video conferences and/or webinars (hereinafter: “Online Meetings”). Zoom is a service provided by Zoom Video Communications, Inc. which is based in the USA.
The responsible party for data processing directly related to the conduct of online meetings is the website provider.
Note: Insofar as you call up the Zoom website, the Zoom provider is responsible for data processing. However, calling up the website is only necessary to use Zoom in order to download the software for using Zoom.
You can also use Zoom if you enter the respective meeting ID and, if applicable, further access data for the meeting directly in the Zoom app.
If you do not want to or cannot use the Zoom app, then the basic functions can also be used via a browser version, which you can also find on the Zoom website.
When using Zoom, various types of data are processed. The scope of the data also depends on the data you provide before or when participating in an online meeting.
The following personal data are subject to processing:
User details: first name, last name, phone (optional), email address, password (if “single sign-on” is not used), profile picture (optional), department (optional).
Meeting metadata: Topic, description (optional), attendee IP addresses, device/hardware information.
For recordings (optional): MP4 file of all video, audio and presentation recordings, M4A file of all audio recordings, text file of online meeting chat.
For dial-in with the telephone: information on the incoming and outgoing call number, country name, start and end time. If necessary, further connection data such as the IP address of the device can be stored.
Text, audio and video data: You may have the opportunity to use the chat, question or survey functions in an “online meeting”. To this extent, the text entries you make are processed in order to display them in the “online meeting” and, if necessary, to log them. To enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device and from any video camera of the terminal device will be processed accordingly for the duration of the meeting. You can turn off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time via the Zoom applications.
To participate in an online meeting or to enter the “meeting room”, you must at least provide information about your name.
We use Zoom to conduct online meetings. If we want to record online meetings, we will transparently communicate this to you in advance and – if necessary – ask for consent. The fact of recording will also be displayed to you in the Zoom app.
If it is necessary for the purposes of logging the results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will not usually be the case.
In the case of webinars, we may also process questions asked by webinar participants for purposes of recording and following up on webinars.
If you are registered as a user with Zoom, then reports of online meetings (meeting metadata, phone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) may be stored by Zoom for up to one month.
Automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 DSGVO is not used.
Insofar as personal data is processed by the website operator, § 26 BDSG is the legal basis for data processing. If, in connection with the use of Zoom, personal data is not required for the establishment, implementation or termination of the employment relationship, but is nevertheless an elementary component in the use of Zoom, Article 6 (1) (f) DSGVO is the legal basis for data processing. In these cases, our interest is in the effective implementation of online meetings.
Otherwise, the legal basis for data processing when conducting online meetings is Art. 6 (1) lit. b) DSGVO, insofar as the meetings are conducted in the context of contractual relationships.
If there is no contractual relationship, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Here, too, our interest is in the effective conduct of online meetings.
Personal data processed in connection with participation in online meetings will generally not be disclosed to third parties unless it is specifically intended for disclosure. Please note that the content of online meetings, as well as face-to-face meetings, is often used to communicate information with customers, prospects or third parties and is therefore intended for disclosure.
Other recipients: Zoom’s provider will necessarily become aware of the above data.
Zoom is a service provided by a provider from the USA. Processing of personal data thus also takes place in a third country.
An adequate level of data protection is guaranteed by the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses.
