It is a great concern to us to protect your personal data. We therefore process your data solely on the basis of the legal regulations (including the EU Data Protection Basic Regulation, Telecommunications Act, Data Protection Act – EU – Datenschutzgrundverordnung, Telekommunikationsgesetz, Datenschutzgesetz). In this data protection declaration, we inform you about the essential aspects of data processing when using our website.
WHAT IS PERSONAL DATA?
Personal data is all information that refers to a natural person. As soon as a natural person can be identified on the basis of the data (e.g. by assigning a user ID) it is already personal data. Personal data includes, for example, your name, your address, your telephone number or your date of birth. Statistical information that cannot be directly or indirectly associated with you (such as the popularity of individual websites in our service or the number of users of a page) is not personal data.
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
The Ludwig Boltzmann Gesellschaft is responsible to collect and process your data. If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us:
