1. Collection and processing of data

We collect anonymised user data by using the web statistics tool PIWIK. PIWIK uses a cookie, with the help of which information about your usage of this website including your IP address is generated. You may configure your browser in a way in which it prevents the storage of the cookie on your computer. By doing so, you do not impede the usage of this website.

We have configured PIWIK in a way that your IP address is stored anonymously. The data shall exclusively be used for the statistical evaluation of the user data and will be deleted after the expiration of a maximum of 12 months.

Personal data shall only be collected in the event that you submit these data voluntarily, e.g. in the scope of an inquiry or registration, an enrolment for a seminar, or an order in our online bookshop.

2. Usage and disclosure of personal data

As far as you have provided us with personal data, we will only use them for replying to your inquiries, for performing contracts we have concluded with you, and for the technical administration.
Your personal data will only be disclosed to third parties in the event that this should be necessary for the purpose of performing the contract or for accounting purposes or in the event that you have given your previous consent. You shall be entitled to revoke a given consent at all times with effect for the future.
The deletion of the stored personal data will be performed in the event that you revoke your consent to the storage, the knowledge of them is no longer necessary for the purpose pursued with the storage, or in the event that their storage should be unlawful for other statutory reasons.
In projects supported by third-party funds, we are obliged to store specific data, also after the period during which the project is being performed, for several years in accordance with reasons arising from the provisions regulating such financial support. After the expiration of this time limit, these data will be destroyed.
