Security and protection of your personal data
Upholding the confidentiality of the personal data made available to us by you and protecting them from unauthorised access is a priority for us. We, therefore, apply the utmost care and state-of-the-art security standards to ensure a maximum protection of your personal data.
As a federal foundation under public law, we are subject to the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the provisions of the Federal German Data Protection Act (BDSG). We have taken the technical and organisational measures to ensure that the provisions on data protection are observed both by us and by our external service providers.
The legislator requires that personal data be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject (“lawfulness, fairness and transparency”). In order to secure this, we inform you about the individual legal definitions which are also used in this Data Privacy Statement:
- Personal data
“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
“Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
- Restriction of processing
“Restriction of processing” means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
“Profiling” means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
“Pseudonymisation” means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
- Filing system
“Filing system” means any structured set of personal data which are accessible according to specific criteria, whether centralised, decentralised or dispersed on a functional or geographical basis.
“Controller” means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
“Processor” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
“Recipient” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular enquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
- Third Party
“Third party” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
“Consent” of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmation action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
Lawfulness of processing
The processing of personal data shall be lawful only if there is a legal basis for the processing. The legal basis for the processing can, more particularly, be the following in accordance with Article 6 (1)(a) – (f) GDPR:
a. The data subject has given consent to the processing of his or her personal data for one or more specific purposes;
b. The processing is necessary for the performance of a contract, to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract;
c. The processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject;
d. The processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person;
e. The processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
f. The processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests of fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.

Use of Google Analytics
(2) As part of the Google Analytics advertising function, remarketing and reports on performance by demographic characteristics and interests are used. The purpose of these procedures is to use the information on user behaviour to align advertising measures more closely with the interests of the respective users. In the context of remarketing, personalised advertising measures can be placed on other websites based on the user’s surfing behaviour on this website. The advertising material may contain products that the user has previously viewed on the website. If you have consented to have your web and app browsing history linked to your Google account by Google or to have information from your Google account used to personalise ads, Google will use such data for cross-device remarketing.
Furthermore, you can prevent the collection and processing of this data by Google LLC by downloading and installing the browser add-on available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Alternatively, or within browsers on mobile devices, please click on the following link: deactivate Google Analytics. This will place an opt-out cookie on your device for our internet pages with effect for your currently used browser. If you erase your cookies in this browser, you must click on this link again. The data processing, more particularly the setting of cookies, is carried out with your consent on the basis of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until withdrawal.
Use of social media plug-ins
(1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins: [Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Xing, T3N, LinkedIn, Flattr]. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our website, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognise the provider of the plug-in through the marking on the box via its initial letter or logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our online offering. In addition, the data collected when you visit our website is transmitted. In the case of Facebook and Xing, according to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymised immediately after collection. By activating the plug-in, your personal data are transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of US providers, in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects the data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser’s security settings before clicking on the grey box.
(2) We have no influence on the data collected and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purposes of the processing, the storage periods. We likewise have no information on the erasure of the collected data by the plug-in provider.
(3) The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and / or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the display of customised advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise such right. Through the plug-ins, we offer you the opportunity to interact with the social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
(4) The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider or are logged in there. If you are logged in to the plug-in provider, your data collected from us will be directly assigned to your account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activate button and for instance link to the page, the plug-in provider also saves this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will help you to avoid an assignment to your profile with the plug-in provider.
(5) Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the data privacy statements of these providers provided below. There you will also receive further information on your rights in this connection and setting options for protecting your privacy.

Guest management with “Guestoo”
For guest management purposes, we use the cloud solution of the provider “Guestoo”. Therefore, please note the data privacy statement of Guestoo. Within Guestoo, personal data are processed and stored for the duration of the organisation as well as the preparation and follow-up of the respective events. Any existing legal obligations to retain data remain unaffected.

Within the context of our online events, we use the video transmission tool Zoom, a service of Zoom Video Communications, Inc., 55 Almaden Boulevard, 6th Floor, San Jose, CA 95113, USA (hereinafter referred to as “Zoom”). Zoom is used by us to conduct online events via video transmission.
The information processed includes, amongst others, user details (eg first name, last name, email address), meeting meta data (eg topic, participant IP addresses, device / hardware information) and recordings (MP4 file of all video, audio and presentation recordings, M4A file of all audio recordings, text file of the online meeting chat).
If you have a user account with Zoom and participate in the video conference via such user account, Zoom can assign the meta data to your user account.

The data may also be stored in a third country (UK, USA).
