This privacy notice is intended to provide website users with information in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of data by
Gemeinnütziges Bildungswerk des Deutschen Gewerkschaftsbundes e.V.
(hereinafter “DGB-Bildungswerk BUND e.V.” or “the website operator”)
The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially. The collection, processing and use of your personal data takes place in accordance with the applicable data protection provisions and other statutory provisions.
Please note that the transmission of data via the internet may fundamentally be affected by security loopholes. It is not possible to provide total protection against access by third parties.
The website operator/provider collects data about access to the site and stores these data as “server log files”. For technical reasons, each time you access our website your internet browser automatically transfers the following data, which are recorded by the website operator:
The website visited
Date and time of access
Amount of data transmitted in bytes
Source/link used to access the site
Operating system used
IP address used
The data collected are used purely for statistical analyses, technical network and system monitoring and website improvement. However, the website operator reserves the right to subsequently check the server log files if there are any specific indications of unlawful use.
You can configure your browser in such a way that you are informed about the placement of cookies, only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude cookies for specific events, or generally or automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. If you disable cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Handling personal data
The website operator only collects, uses and transmits your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you have provided your consent to the collection of data.
There is strictly no transmission to third parties unless you have consented to this or this is permitted by law in order to perform the services you have requested. If we appoint third parties to process data for the purpose of support with our business processes (e.g. for sending information material, invoices, etc.), these third parties must undertake to comply with our standard of data protection and grant us the right to monitor compliance with this standard and the statutory provisions. In this case, the website operator will remain legally responsible for compliance with the statutory data protection provisions (“contract processing”).
Personal data relates to all information that can be used to identify you personally and that can be traced back to you such as e.g. your name, your email address and telephone number.
Handling contact data
If you contact the website operator using the contact information provided, your details will be stored so that they can be used for processing and responding to your query. These data will not be disclosed to third parties without your consent.
Matomo (formerly Piwik) Analytics
The website operator uses the service Matomo (formerly Piwik) in order to optimise its website. In order to provide the exact information that has been sought and requested, and in order to continually improve our website, we analyse visitor behaviour on our website.
The service uses “cookies”—text files that are stored on your device. The information collected by the cookies is stored on a server belonging to the website operator. The IP address is anonymised during processing before it is stored.
You can object to the analysis of your website visit at any time by clicking on this link.
Deactivate Matomo (formerly Piwik)
It is not guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website if you object to the use of Matomo.
The user’s rights: Access, rectification and erasure
As a user, you are entitled to receive information upon request and free of charge regarding which personal data about you has been stored. Unless your request conflicts with a statutory duty regarding data retention (e.g. telecommunications data retention), you have the right to have incorrect data rectified and the right to have your personal data blocked or erased.
If you have any further questions that are not answered by this privacy notice, please contact our data protection officer at the following email address:
The data protection officer for DGB Bildungswerk BUND e.V. is Mr Stefan Cors.
The responsible supervisory authority is:
Landesbeauftragte für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit Nordrhein-Westfalen
PO Box 20 04 44
You may revoke any consent that you have provided for the further use of your personal data with future effect at any time. Please send this revocation to the following address:
DGB Bildungswerk BUND
or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
You are entitled to request the rectification of incorrect data or the completion of correct data.
Data that we store shall be blocked for any further use upon the lapse of the relevant authorisation, particularly after the purpose has been achieved, and will be erased after the expiry of the tax and commercial law retention periods unless you have expressly consented to the further use of your data or unless there is any contractual agreement to the contrary.
You can request the erasure of your personal data. The website operator will erase the data unless there are any statutory retention periods (e.g. in connection with invoicing) that would prevent this.
In order to protect your data from any unintentional or unlawful deletion, transmission or access or from any manipulation or loss and any other misuse, the website operator has adopted appropriate technical and organisational measures.
For your security, your personal data are encrypted using an SSL Certificate (Secure Socket Layer). This is an encryption standard that is also used with online banking, for example. Ways to recognise a secure SSL connection include the ‘s’ added to the ‘http’ (i.e. https://...) in the address bar of your browser or the padlock symbol at the bottom of your browser.
Please note that safety when using the internet sometimes depends on circumstances beyond the website operator’s control and cannot be fully guaranteed every time.
