Protection of privacy
We handle personal data in line with the statutory provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz; BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz; TMG).
Personal data is used by the following responsible provider:
Dr. P. Rahn & Partner
Gemeinnützige Schulgesellschaft mbH
04103 Leipzig (Germany) (Further details in Legal Notice)
on this website ("offering") and within the Company.
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ("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; (Art. 4 (1) GDPR). These details include name, contact details, such as postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, etc., as well as other information relating to the individual.
As a general rule, you can visit our website without being required to enter personal data.
We gather, process and use personal data, where necessary, in order to enable you to use the products and services offered. The provider (or their webspace provider) gathers data every time the Offering is accessed (server log files). Access data include:
The name of the website or file accessed, the date and time it was accessed, the data volume transferred, report on successful download, the browser type with version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the site previously visited), IP address and the enquiring provider.
The provider uses the protocol data exclusively for statistical evaluation for the purposes of operating, monitoring the security of and optimising the offering. The provider, however, reserves the right to review the protocol data in retrospect if there are specific indications for a justified suspicion of illegal use.
This data is not personal data, but is used in an anonymous form. It is used exclusively for statistical purposes. The data is not forwarded to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes.
Google Analytics makes use of this offer Google Analytics, a web analytics service belonging to Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", text files stored on the user's computer which enable website use to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie relating to the user's movements on the website is generally transferred to and stored on a Google server in the USA.
Cookies are small files that enable specific information relating to the user's access device (PC, smartphone, etc.) to be stored on that device. They serve firstly to enhance the website's user-friendliness and thus benefit users (e.g. saving login details). They also serve to record the statistical data relating to website use and to analyse this data in order to improve the offering. Users can influence how and when cookies are used. Most browsers offer an option for limiting or preventing the storage of cookies. This is, however, accompanied by a notice stating that the use and, in particular, the user comfort, will be limited if cookies are deactivated.
If IP anonymization is activated on this website, the user's IP address will, however, be anonymised within the Member States of the European Union and in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP addresses are only transferred to a Google server in the USA and anonymised there in exceptional cases. IP anonymization has been activated on this website. At the request of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse use of the website by the users, to compile reports on website activities and to provide other services to the website operator relating to website and internet use.
The IP address sent by your browser in the context of Google Analytics activities will not be merged with other data available to Google. Users can prevent cookies from being stored by making a corresponding entry in their browser settings; this offering, however, notifies the user that they may in such case not be able to use the full scope of the website's capabilities. Users can also prevent the data created by the cookie relating to their use of the website (incl. their IP address) from being gathered by and processed Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
As an alternative to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, please click this link in order to prevent Google Analytics gathering data from this website in future. This will store an opt-out cookie on your device. If you delete your cookies, you will have to follow this link again.
If you use our contact formula and enter personal data (such as name, address, e-mail address, telephone number) in order to enable us to contact you or for other purposes, the entry and transfer of such data is voluntary. We will use this data for the specified purpose only and will not forward it to third parties without your express consent, unless we are obliged to do so by law.
If a contractual relationship is to be established, structured or amended between you and us or you send us an enquiry, we will gather, store and use your personal data insofar as is necessary for these purposes.
All personal data will only be stored for as long as is necessary for the specified purpose (processing your enquiry or concluding a contract) or in order to comply with statutory storage periods.
Our offering contains links to external third-party websites; we have no influence over the content of such websites. We do not assume any liability for the content of linked sites or for the operators of such sites complying with data protection requirements. The relevant provider or operator of such linked sites is responsible for their content at all times.
The provider makes express reference to the fact that data transfer via the internet (e.g. in e-mail communication) may present security gaps and cannot be completely protected against third-party access. The provider assumes no responsibility and accepts no liability in the event that data transmission fails or of unauthorised access by third parties. The data is stored and processed on servers in Germany only.
We take the matter of protecting personal data very seriously. All members of staff involved in processing personal data are obliged to observe data confidentiality. When involving cooperation partners, we strictly comply with the requirements set out in the GDPR and other applicable data protection regulations.
Under Art. 15 GDPR, users have the right to receive information on the personal data relating to them which has been stored upon request at no cost. Users also have the right to have any erroneous data corrected and to have their personal data blocked or deleted, unless a statutory retention obligation prevents this. Please contact the provider specified in the contact data in the Legal Notice.
Under Art. 77 GDPR, users also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if they consider that the processing of personal data relating to them infringes data protection regulations. The complaint may be lodged with a supervisory body in the Member State of the data subject's habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement.
Any questions relating to the processing of personal data can be addressed to our Data Protection Officer.
