Processing of Personal Data and Purposes of the Data Processing

 

a) During Your Website Visit

You have the choice to access our website without revealing your identity. In this case, the active browser on your computing device sends nothing but the automatic information about itself to the server of our website to enable the connection. This includes the browser type and version and the date and time of access.  Included in the transmitted data is also the IP address of your device. Our server stores this IP address in a log file and deletes it automatically after four (4) weeks.

We process the IP address for technical and administrative purposes when we establish a stable connection between your device and our server. This ensures the security and functional reliability of our website. In the event an attacker tries to harm our system, the stored data allow us to trace the illegitimate activity.

The legal foundation for processing the IP address is Article 6 para. 1. lit. f GDPR. We have legitimate interests in maintaining the security of our website and in providing trouble-free website services as outlined above.

Processing the IP address of the requesting device in our log file does not allow us to draw direct conclusions on the identity of the website visitor.


3. Transfer of Personal Data to Third Persons

We transfer your personal data to third parties only under the following circumstances:

The third party/third parties shall use the transferred data for the specified purpose exclusively.

The transmission/transfer of personal data to a country outside the EU or to an international organisation is prohibited.


4.   Your Rights as Affected Person

You have the right

Information on your Right of Objections according to Article 21 GDPR

You have the right to object at any time against the processing of your personal data, based on Article 6 para. 1, lit. f GDPR (data processing in the public interest) and Article 6, para. 1, lit. e GDPR (data processing based on fair balancing) for reasons, which arise from your specific situation. This shall also apply to the profiling as prescribed by Article 4 No. 4 GDPR, which is supported by this provision.

Once you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we can establish compelling evidence, which is worthy of protection and outweighs your interests, rights and privileges, or unless the processing serves the enforcement, exercise or defence of legal claims.

To the extent that your objection addresses the processing of data for direct advertising, we will stop the processing immediately. In this case, citing a special situation is not required.  This shall also apply to profiling in as far as it relates to such direct advertising.

If you like to claim your right to object, an email to datenschutz@zv.fraunhofer.de will suffice.

 

5.   Data Security

We transmit all your personal data using the generally used and secure encryption standard TLS (Transport Layer Security). The TLS protocol is a proven and secure standard. Bankers use the standard for online banking transactions. You recognise a secure TLS connection by the s following the http (https://...) in your browser URL or by the lock symbol in the lower section of your browser.

 

By the way, we use suitable technical and organisational safety procedures to protect your data against inadvertent or wilful manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against the unauthorised access by third parties. We constantly improve these security measures as the technology advances.

 

6.   Amendments to the Data Security Information and its Timeliness

This data protection information as amended on May, 2018 is currently applicable.

You may read or print this updated and amended version at any time.
