3. General information and mandatory information

Data protection
The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data particularly seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this data protection regulation.

When you use this website, various personal data is collected. Personal data are all data with which you can be personally identified. This Privacy Statement explains what information we collect and how we use it. It also explains how and for what purposes this is done.
We draw your attention to the fact that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. in communication by e-mail) may be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of your data against access by third parties is not possible.

Revocation of your consent to the processing of your data
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. An informal e-mail with this request is sufficient. The information processed before your request is received may still be processed lawfully.

Right to file complaints with regulatory authorities
In the event of breaches of data protection provisions, the data subject may lodge a claim with the competent regulatory authorities. The supervisory authority responsible for data protection matters is the data protection officer of the state of Baden-Württemberg in which our association is based. You can find a list of data protection officers and their contact details under the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/ZASt/DE/Infothek/AnschriftenLinks/AnschriftenLinks-node.html

Right to data portability
You have the privilege to have data which we process on the basis of your agreement or in fulfilment of a contract automatically supplied to you or a third party in a uniform, machine-readable format. If you wish the direct transfer of data to another person in charge, this will only take place within the scope of what is possible from a technical point of view.

Opposition to promotional emails
The use of the contact data published within the scope of the impressum obligation by third parties for sending unsolicited advertising and information material is hereby expressly prohibited. The operators of these pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example by spam mails.

You also have the right to correct, block or delete this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in our imprint if you have further questions on the subject of personal data.

SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

4. Data collection on our website

Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in "server log files". These are:

•    Browser type and browser version
•    Operating system used
•    Referrer URL
•    Host name of the accessing computer
•    Time of the server request
•    IPaddress

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

Contact form
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6(1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.

Registration on this website
You can register on our website in order to access other functions offered here. The data you enter will only be used for the purpose of using the respective page or service for which you have registered. The obligatory information required for registration must be provided in full. Otherwise we reject your registration.
To inform you about any important changes, e.g. within the scope of our website or technical changes, we use the e-mail address provided during registration.

We only process the information provided during registration with your consent in accordance with Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter a) DSGVO. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. An e-mail with this request is sufficient. The data processed before your request is received may still be processed legally.

We store the data collected during registration for as long as you are registered on our website. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
Leave comments about this website

If you use the comment function on this page, the time at which you created the comment and your e-mail address will be stored together with your comment and your user name, unless you write anonymously.

Storage of the IP address
Our comment function stores the IP-addresses of those users who post comments. Since we do not check comments on our site before they go live, we need this information to be able to pursue action for illegal or slanderous content.

Subscribing to the comment feed (future)
As a user of this site, you can sign up to receive the comment feed after registering. Your email address will be checked with a confirmation email. You can unsubscribe from this function at any time by clicking the link in the emails. The data provided when you subscribed to the comments feed will then be deleted, but if you have submitted this data to us for other purposes or elsewhere (such as subscribing to a newsletter), it will be retained.

How long comments are stored (future)
The comments and the associated data (e.g. IP address) are stored and remain on our website until the content commented upon has been completely deleted or the comments are required to be removed for legal reasons (slander, etc.).

Legal basis
The comments are stored based on your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal e mail making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

5. Newsletter

Newsletter data
If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require a valid email address as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive this newsletter. No additional data is collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address as well as their use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. through the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.

6. Use and application of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function)

We have integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function) on this website.

Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

During the first visit of our websites we invite the data subject to consent the usage of Google Analytics. The data subject's activities on our websites are not recorded as long as the respective consent has not been given.

In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject must download a browser add-on under the link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and information about the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-ons is considered an objection by Google. If the information technology system of the data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by the data subject or any other person who is attributable to their sphere of competence, or is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.

If Google does not provide this Internet browser plugin for the Internet browser or IT system used for your visit, you can deactivate Google Analytics by using this Link: Deactivate Google Analytics. This deactivation only takes effect for the currently used IT system and for the currently used Internet browser

For the web analytics through Google Analytics we use the application "_gat. _anonymizeIp". By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us. This purpose is considered a legitimate interest according to Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link www.google.com/analytics/.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Linkhttps://www.google.com/analytics/.

Alphabet Inc. and its subsidiaries (e.g. Google LLC) comply the requirements of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, as well as the Suisse-US Privacy Shield Framework. Further information about these treaties may be retrieved under www.privacyshield.gov.

7. Use and application of YouTube (privacy-enhanced mode)

We have integrated components of YouTube on this website. The operating company of YouTube is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

YouTube videos on our website are embedded solely by usage of the “privacy-enhanced mode” of YouTube. According to its terms YouTube collects information about the visitors of a website only if they play a video. Further information about this can be accessed at support.google.com/youtube/answer/171780 in the section “Turn on privacy-enhanced mode”.

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding YouTube component. Further information about YouTube may be obtained under www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. During the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google gain knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the data subject.

The embedding of YouTube videos serves the purpose of providing informative, additional or scientific contents on this website, which are published by their authors to a broad audience through a public platform (YouTube). This purpose is considered a legitimate interest according to Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

If the data subject is logged in on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the data subject. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.

YouTube and Google will receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject is logged in on YouTube while playing the video on our website. If such a transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not desirable for the data subject, the delivery may be prevented if the data subject logs off from their own YouTube account before a call-up to our website is made.

YouTube's data protection provisions, available at www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

Alphabet Inc. and its subsidiaries (e.g. Google LLC, YouTube LLC) comply the requirements of the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, as well as the Suisse-US Privacy Shield Framework. Further information about these treaties may be retrieved under www.privacyshield.gov.
