What means personal data?

Personal data means any information (e.g. name, postal address, phone number, e-mail address) relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. Information that is not associated with identity (e.g. number of users of a website) is not included.

How do we collect your data?

Your data is collected by you providing it to us. The use of our website is generally possible without disclosing your identity. We do not use any web tracking tools with which anonymized information about user behaviour during a visit to a website can be collected. If you use our contact form, the transmission of the content is done via an encrypted https communication protocol.

What do we use your data for?

If you send us an e-mail or use our contact form on the website, your data will be used for correspondence with you. We also store the data you provide us with according to the means you have requested. In addition to the contents of the data fields, the IP address of the sender is also transmitted. In principle, this also takes place when sending conventional e-mails. We assume that we are entitled to reply by e-mail or to the contact request. Otherwise, you must expressly inform us of another form of communication.

Will your data be stored when visiting our website?

Your data will only be stored as long as it is required for the purpose-related use. We use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

When you order information material or our newsletter, or register for one of our events, we ask you for your name and other personal information. It is your free decision whether you provide this data. By entering your data, you consent to its use for a specific purpose. We store your data on a specially protected server in Germany or on servers of service providers. Access to it is only possible for specially authorized persons who are involved in the technical, commercial or editorial support of the server at GLI. The service providers are selected in strict compliance with the legal data protection requirements – among other things, we ensure that their servers are located in Germany wherever possible.

Transfer of personal data to third parties

Data collected when accessing our website will only be passed on to third parties, if we are obliged to do so by law or by court order. Data will not be passed on for other non-commercial or commercial purposes.

In the case of ordering information material, personal data entered will only be used within GLI. No data will be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

Changes to the privacy policy

Due to the (technological) development of our websites or due to legislation, changes to the privacy policy may become necessary. We always post changes here and recommend that you read this notice occasionally.

Right of withdrawal

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Integration of social networks

Our website uses plugins (software components to extend the functionality of the website), including plugins from social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or Xing (social media plugins). Social media plugins serve the purpose of creating interaction opportunities with your contacts and to disseminate information more easily through them.

We use a two-click way so that no data transmission to social networks takes place when you merely visit our website, as the social media plugins are inactive by default. Only when you click on a plugin does your browser establish a direct connection with the servers of the respective network. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly to your browser by the network and integrated into the website by it. If these networks are located outside the EU/EEA, we cannot exclude that your data is transmitted to a server outside the EU/EEA and processed there.

We have no influence on the data collection and its further use by social networks. We have no knowledge of the extent to which, where and for how long the data is stored, to what extent the networks comply with existing deletion obligations, what evaluations and links are made with the data and to whom the data is passed on.

Through the integration of plugins, the respective network receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to one of the networks, this network can assign this information to your profile. If you do not want the network to collect information about your visit to our website, you must log out beforehand. However, there is always the possibility that the network will find out your IP address and stores it, even though you have not registered there or are not logged in. We also have no information about the deletion of the collected data by the plugin provider.

The plugin provider stores the data collected about you as a usage profile and uses it for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the display of needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles with the respective service provider. The purpose, duration and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of your data, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be found in the data protection notices of the respective social networks.

We use the map service of OpenStreetMap on our website. OpenStreetMap is a worldwide initiative of volunteers whose goal is to collect geo data and make it freely available to everyone. By using OpenStreetMap, we can make it easier for you to find the places we specify on the website and enable convenient use of map functions. OpenStreetMap collects and structures freely usable geo data and keeps it in a database (Open Data) for use by anyone. The data is available under a free license (Open Database License). The operator of the data services is the OpenStreetMap Foundation, a non-profit organization registered in UK.
