1. Personal data
According to §3 (1) BDSG personal data are single data about personal or factual circumstances attributed to an identified or identifiable individual. This may include information such as your real name, your address, your phone number and your date of birth.
Information which is not directly related to your identity – e.g. favorite websites or number of users of a web page – is not personal data.
2. Collecting and processing of personal data
When you visit our websites information transmitted by your browser is saved automatically in server log files, for technical reasons. Such information is:
• operation system
• referrer URL (previously visited site)
• host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
• time of server inquiry.
These data cannot be related to certain individuals.
Any further data such as your name, address, phone number or email address are not collected except if you provide this information on a voluntary basis, e.g. within registration, an interview, promotional competitions, execution of a contract or request for information.
None of these data will be merged.
When collecting and processing personal data we focus on
• full transparency, i.e. what happens with your data and how they are being processed.
• data avoidance and data economy, i.e. reduction of required data to a minimum.
• strict purpose limitation for the use of your data.
3. Use and disclosure of personal data
Personal data you provided will be used for technical administration of the website and to fulfill your requests and demands, i.e. in general to fulfill the contract or to answer your questions, only.
Your personal data will not be passed on, sold or transmitted to third parties unless it is necessary to fulfill the contract. Therefore, it may be necessary to pass on your address and ordering information to one of the training providers that carries out the testing or to an event partner when you have signed up for a conference.
Transmission to authorities or government institutions that are entitled to receive your information, will only take place in case of legal obligation or court order. In this case data will be reduced to the necessary minimum.
When the purpose of data storage is fulfilled and after the relevant tax and commercially justified retention period is over, all personal data will be deleted.
4. Right to information, blocking or erasure
According to the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) you are entitled to assert your rights to:
• information (§§6, 19,34 BDSG) on stored personal data, their origin, the recipients and categories of recipients and the reason for storage.
• correction, blocking or erasure (§§6, 20, 35 BDSG) der of personal data.
• appeal with effect to the future (§28 BDSG)
