This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by Newsign GmbH.
The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory regulations.
Please bear in mind that data transmission on the Internet can always be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection against access by third parties is not possible.
The website operator or page provider (Cyon GmbH) collects data on access to the page and stores this as “server log files”. The following data is logged in this way:
- Visited website
- Time at the time of access
- Amount of data sent in bytes
- Source/reference from which you accessed the page
- Browser used
- Operating system used
- IP address used
The data collected is only used for statistical analysis and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to check the server log files retrospectively if there are concrete indications of illegal use.
Handling of personal data
The website operator collects, uses and discloses your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of such data.
Personal data includes all information that can be used to identify you personally and that can be traced back to you – for example, your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
Handling of contact data
If you contact the website operator using the contact options provided, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
All published content is protected by copyright and other protective laws and may not be copied, distributed or altered for commercial purposes without express permission.
To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form with regard to questions of any kind, you give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting you. In order to do so, you must provide a valid e-mail address. This is used for the assignment of the enquiry and the subsequent response to it. The provision of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and for possible follow-up questions. Personal data will be automatically deleted once your enquiry has been dealt with.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. This service is provided by Google Ireland Ltd Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. We would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIP” and therefore your IP address is shortened by Google. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
The legitimate interest of the research project “Care Leaver explore Leaving Care” in using the data collected with the help of Google Analytics is to learn more about the effectiveness, reach and usability of the websites.
You can object to the collection and storage of data by Google Analytics at any time with effect for the future by downloading and installing a browser deactivation add-on. This will prevent Google Analytics from storing and processing data about your website visits. You can find further information and instructions for downloading and installing the add-on at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. You can also download the deactivation add-on there.
You can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent future collection of your data when visiting this website: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always complies with the current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection statement will then apply to your next visit.
Rights to: Information, correction and deletion
As a user, you can request information free of charge about what personal data has been stored about you. Provided that your request does not conflict with a legal obligation to retain data (e.g. data retention), you have the right to have incorrect data corrected and to have your personal data blocked or deleted.
