This statement is designed to inform the user of this website about the kind, extent and intention of collection and use of personal data by the IFZW-Group.

The IFZW-Group takes data security very seriously and uses personalised data confidentially and according to the law. As there can be changes to this data security statement because of new technology and recurring improvement of this website, we advise you to re-read this data security statement from time to time.

You can find the definition of used terms (e.g. “personal data” or “data handling”) in Art. 4 DSGVO. (German version of the General Data Protection Regulation).

Access Data

Collection and use of personal data

The IFZW-Group collects, uses and transfers your personalised data only if it is either allowed by law or with your consent.

Personalised data are information, which are used to determine your person and can be traced back to you, e.g. your name, e-mail-address and telephone number.

You can visit this website without giving any information about your person. To improve our online-offering, however, we store (without any personal reference) your access data to this website. These access data are e.g. the requested file or the name of your internet provider. By anonymising these data, it is not possible to draw any conclusions to your person.

Handling of contact data

If you contact the IFZW-Group by using the website’s contact options, your data is stored to process and answer your request. Without your consent these data won’t be transferred to any third party.

Handling of comments and contributions

If you leave a comment on this website, your IP-address will be saved. This is because of our qualified interest (compare Art. 6 section. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) and protects us as website operator. If your comment breaches applicable law, we may be held liable for it and because of this reason we are interested in the comment author’s identity.

Google Analytics

Due to our qualified interest, to optimise and analyse the online offering in accordance with Art. 6 section. 1 lit. f. DSGVO, this website uses Google Analytics, a service offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are stored on your end device. Usually any information collected through these cookies, is transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there.

Google LLC complies with European data security-law and is certified under the Privacy-Shield-Agreement.
On this website IP-anonymising takes effect. Inside the European Union, the European Economic Area and other contracting states of the agreement the User’s IP-address will be shortened. Only in individual cases will the IP-address initially be sent unshortenend to a Google server in the US and then will be shortened there. Shortening this address makes any reference to your person impossible. The sent IP-address will never be combined with other saved data by google.

Within the agreement for the contract data agreement which we as website operator have entered into with Google Inc., Google Inc. evaluates the website usage and activity and provides services in connection with the internet usage on the basis of the collected information.

As mandated by us, the collected data are used by Google, to evaluate the use of our online offering by individual users, to create activity reports of our website and to improve our offering.
