4) Inquiries related to general contact addresses
For establishing contact, we also hold available general e-mail addresses on the website. Provided that you contact us via such an address, the personal data sent in this manner is solely processed for the purpose intended.
5) On which legal basis is the data processed
a) Meeting contractual and pre-contractual obligations
Using our website, there exists the possibility to acquire products and/or services or initially any other information possibly to be provided with an individual offer regarding them. In case of use of these functions, you are requested to specify further information. The legal basis for this data processing is the meeting of contractual or pre-contractual obligations, in accordance with Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b) GDPR.
b) Granting of consent
Different functions of this website are only usable if you have first given us your consent. Included in these functions are e.g. the ordering of our newsletters. At certain points you are correspondingly informed of the data processing, the purposes of data processing and your rights, in particular your right to withdraw your consent at any time. In case of consent being given, the legal grounds for the data processing is Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
c) Legitimate interests
In addition, we process partly person-related data in our entitled interests in case of use of this website. Within the framework of the weighting of interests according to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, we have considered and weighted our interest in the appropriation and your interest in a processing of your personal data consistent with data protection. Since this data is sometimes required technically in order to enable the appropriation of our service and also to guarantee stability and security, in particular protection against misuse, we came to the conclusion – in case of the data protection, a guarantee based the state of the art of the technology- that this data can be processed, where your interest in a processing consistent with data protection is considered to an adequate extent.
6) Cookies – General information
7) Cookies – Type differentiation of the cookies
a) Technically necessary cookies
Technically necessary cookies are not required as mandatory to display the website. However, some functions of the website, such as e.g. the online Campus and registration for seminars etc., cannot be used properly without these cookies. Conse,quently no possibility of objection exists for the user, where a deactivation this cookies can be carried out by settings on the respective browser.
8) Contact form
You have the possibility to contact us via our e-mail address or the contact form. We will of course use any personal data sent to us in this manner solely for the purpose intended.
9) Transfer of data
A forwarding of your personal data to third parties for any objectives other than those listed does not occur.
We pass on your personal data to third parties only if:
- you have given your explicit consent to this
- the transfer is required for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and no basis exists for the assumption that you have a majority interest worthy of being protected in the non-transfer of your data,
- For the case where a legal obligation exists for the forwarding, as well as
- where this is legally admissible and required for the handling of contractual relationships with you.
In case of data communication outside of the European Union, the high European data-protection level basically does not exist. With any transfer, it can be that there currently exists no adequacy decision of the EU Commission, as specified by Art. 45 Sect. 1, 3 GDPR. This means that, to date, the EU Commission has not positively determined that the national data protection level corresponds to the data protection level of the European Union based on the GDPR, therefore we have obtained suitable guarantees as designated above.
Possible risks which cannot be completely excluded in connection with data communication are in particular:
- your personal data could possibly be processed over and above the actual purpose.
- in addition, there exists the possibility that you cannot exercise and enforce your data-protection rights sustainably, such as for example your right to information, to correction, deletion or data portability.
- there also possibly exists a high probability that an incorrect data processing can result and the protection of the personal data does not correspond quantitatively and qualitatively fully to the requirements of the GDPR.
For the continuous improvement of our website, for advertising purposes and in order to enable certain functions of this website to be offered to you, we are instructed with the employment of processors.
All processors are obliged here to process the data only for the service provision actually defined by us. All processors were selected by us carefully and sufficient technical and organisational measures were put in place in order to guarantee data protection.
10) Teaching data subject rights
Every person affected has the right of access according to Art. 15 GDPR, the right to rectification according to Art. 16 GDPR, the right to erasure according to Article 17 GDPR, the right to restriction of processing according to GDPR Art. 18, the right to object from Art. 21 GDPR, as well as the right to data portability from Art. 20 GDPR. In case of the right
to of access and the right to erasure, restrictions apply pursuant to § 34 and 35 BDSG.
Advice on the possibility to lodge a complaint
Furthermore, you have the right to complain to the responsible data-protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data by us.
Advice on the withdrawal with consent
You can withdraw any consent to the processing of personal data at any time with respect to us. This also applies for the revocation of consent declarations which have been made before the validity of the basic data protection regulation (before 25th May 2018) with respect to us. Please note that the withdrawal effects the future. Any processing implemented prior to the withdrawal is not affected by this.
Right in case of a data processing for the purpose of direct advertising
In accordance with Art. 21 Sect. 2 GDPR, you have the right to make an objection at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you. In case of your objection to processing for purposes of direct advertising, we will not process your personal data for these objectives any longer. Please note that the objection comes into effect for the future only. Any processing implemented prior to the objection is not affected by this.
Note on right to objection in case of weighting of interests
As far as we base the processing of your personal data on a weighting of interests, you can make an objection to the processing. In case of the exercise of such an objection, we request that you explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as described. In case of your reasonable objection, we check the state of affairs and will either cease or adapt the data processing, or explain to you our compelling reasons worth being protected.
