Data Protection Declaration
Data Protection Regulations
You can visit our website without having to reveal any personal details about yourself. Only your access data without any personal reference to you are saved, e.g., the name of your Internet service provider, the site from which you visited our website, the names of the files accessed and the date when they were accessed.
The IAG records data about every visit to the website (so-called server log files). The access data include: name of the accessed website or file, date and time of access, data volume transferred, message about successful accessing, type of browser including version, the user’s operating system, refferer URL (the previously visited website), IP address and the requesting provider.
The IAG uses protocol data only for statistical assessments for operating and safety purposes, as well as optimising the offer. The IAG reserves the right, however, to subsequently examine the protocol data if there are concrete grounds to suspect that illegal usage is taking place.
We adhere with the respective valid data protection provisions, in particular the regulations of the Telemedia Act (“TMG”) and the Federal Data Protection Act (“BDSG”).
In order to make our Internet offer as attractive as possible to visit and make the use of certain functions possible, we use so-called “cookies”. These are small text files that are stored on your computer.
After you have finished using your browser, the majority of cookies used are deleted once again from your hard-drive (“session cookies”). The so-called “permanent cookies” remain on your computer however and make it possible for us to recognise you the next time you visit our website.
Partner companies are not allowed to gather, process or use personal data from our website using cookies. You have the possibility to prevent the cookies being saved on your computer by selecting the corresponding browser settings on your browser, you will only be able to use some functions on our website to a limited extent as a result however.
This website uses PIWIK, an open source software for statistical assessment of the user access that is recommended by the data protection authority.
Piwik uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are saved on the user’s computer and which enable an analysis of how the user uses the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the website are saved on the provider's server in Germany. The IP address will be made anonymous immediately after processing and before being saved. Users can prevent the installation of the cookies through the corresponding settings on their browser software. The website operator, however, points out that the user may not be able to use all functions of the website completely in this case.
At several locations on our website you have the possibility to send us a message using the “Contact Form” or “Contact“ input mask. You need to enter your name, post code and a valid e-mail address for this purpose. The entry of other information is completely voluntary. Your data will be exclusively used to answer your message. Your data is not passed on to third parties or used for any other purpose.
Revocation, corrections and updates
The user has the right to know, free of charge, what personal data about them is saved. The user also has the right to have data corrected, as well as blocked and deleted as far as no statutory recording obligation is in effect.
Integration of the services and content of third parties
It can happen that third-party content can be on our website, such as YouTube videos, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites that are embedded. This always assumes the operator is aware of the user’s IP address (in the following referred to as “third-party provider”). Because without the IP address, they cannot send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required in order to be able to display content. We try to ensure that only content is used that only uses the IP address to deliver the content. However, we do not have any influence if third parties save the IP address for, e.g., statistics purposes. As far as this is known to us, we will inform the user about it.
