Due to our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DS-GVO), we collect data on access to our website and store it in the log files of the server.
The following data is logged in this way:
- Requested page
- Referrer URL
- Date and time of the server request
- Status of the server query
- data volume transferred
- IP address
- User-Agent (Browser & Operating System)
These log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored solely for security reasons, e.g. to clarify cases of abuse, and is not merged with other data sources. If data has to be kept for reasons of evidence, it is excluded from deletion until the incident has been finally clarified. The same settings and rules also apply to the data servers used, "daten.verwaltungsportal", "fotos.verwaltungsportal.de", "vorau.verwaltungsportal.de" and "layout.verwaltungsportal.de", which belong to the backend system of our website provider.
Collection and processing of personal data
In principle, it is possible to use our website without providing personal data. However, should the user wish to use a function that requires the provision of personal data, the website operator will process the personal data only with a corresponding legal basis or with the consent of the person concerned. Personal data is defined as all information that can be assigned to a specific or identifiable natural person - for example, your name, e-mail address or telephone number.
On our website we offer a contact form. There, we process personal data such as name, e-mail, telephone number and the contents of the form. We process this personal data only with the express permission of the persons concerned and in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations and in compliance with the DS-GVO. The processing is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest in fulfilling our contractually agreed services and optimising our online offer.
Handling of contact data
If you contact us through the contact options offered, your data will be processed for the purpose of processing and answering your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.
Handling of comments, contributions and forms
If you write articles or comments on this website, your IP address may be saved. This is done on the basis of a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO and serves the security of us as operators of this website. Should your comment or contribution violate applicable law, we as operators can be prosecuted for this, which is why we have an interest in the identity of the actual author.
If the SSL encryption of this website is activated, sensitive data that you transmit to us via this website (e.g. via contact form) cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an active encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If encryption is active, the data that you transmit to us via the website cannot be read by third parties.
Use of a 2-click solution for Iframe integrations
On our website a 2-click solution for so-called iframe integrations is activated. This function ensures that when you call up a page of our website that contains such integrations of third-party websites, no connection is yet established with the servers of the provider of the respective website. By clicking on the window, however, you can display the contents and thus confirm the differing data protection conditions of the integrated websites. For the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by the external websites as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the data protection information of the respective website or provider.
Use of social media links
The share functions on the website are so-called share links. As these are pure links and not an integration, they are harmless under data protection law. A call to the social networks only takes place when you explicitly click or activate these links.
On our website we offer you a newsletter, which informs about current events and offers. To subscribe to the newsletter, you must enter a valid e-mail address. You will then be asked by e-mail to confirm your registration via an activation link (using the so-called double opt-in procedure). Otherwise your e-mail address will be automatically deleted from the newsletter system after 7 days. If you subscribe to the newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the explained procedure.
We use the system of our website to send the newsletter. Your e-mail address will not be passed on to third parties. Revocation and cancellation: You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and thus unsubscribe from the newsletter. After you unsubscribe, your e-mail will be deleted from the newsletter system immediately. At the end of each newsletter you will find the link to cancel or unsubscribe.
To protect against misuse of forms, the ReCaptcha from Google can be used, whereby the optional parameter "remotipe" is not set in the API query. When using the captcha, your browser will download the necessary data from Google. In doing so, your browser establishes a connection to the Google servers so that Google gains knowledge about the call and your IP address via our website. The operator of this site has no influence on this data transmission.
The use of Google's Recaptcha is in the interest of preventing misuse of forms and should affect the usability of the website as little as possible. The captcha offers one of the most user-friendly captcha on the market due to its mostly automatic recognition and great variety of functions and thus represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.When the Google Recaptcha is called, different data protection regulations of the company Google apply. You can find further information on this at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en
This website can use Google Maps to display location maps. When calling up a Google Maps site plan, data is transmitted to the Google servers and stored there. The operator of this site has no influence on this data transfer. The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and an easy findability of the places we have indicated on the website. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. When calling up Google Maps, different data protection regulations of the company Google apply. You can find further information on this at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en
Google Web Fonts
For the uniform display of fonts this website can use the so-called Google Web Fonts. When using these fonts, your browser downloads the required fonts from our website system and stores them in the so-called browser cache to display the fonts correctly. Your browser does not establish a connection to the Google servers, so that Google has no knowledge of the call or your IP address.
Rights of the user
As a user, you have the right to receive free information on request about which personal data about you has been stored. You also have the right to have incorrect data corrected and to have your personal data processed or deleted. If applicable, you may also exercise your right to data portability, provided that this is technically possible and does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons. If you believe that your data have been processed unlawfully, you can lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
Deletion of data
As a user, you have the right to have your data deleted, as long as this does not collide with a legal obligation to store data. Data stored by us will be deleted if they are no longer necessary for their intended purpose or if there are no legal retention periods. If deletion is not possible because the data is required for permissible legal purposes, data processing will be restricted. In this case the data will be blocked and no longer processed for other purposes.
Right of objection
Users of this website may exercise their right to object and object to the processing of their personal data at any time. If you wish to correct, block, delete or obtain information about the personal data stored about you, or if you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, or if you wish to revoke any consents given, please contact a member of staff at the contact details given above.
