  1. Purposes of data processing and legal bases

We only process your personal data to the extent necessary for the functional provision of our website and for our content and services. If the processing of your personal data is not permitted by a legal basis, it will only take place if you have first consented to the processing in question.

Specifically, we process data about you for the following purposes:

    1. Provision of the website

Every time you visit our website, our system automatically collects the following data and information from your computer system:

• website from which you accessed our website
 

• websites accessed from your system through our website
 

• time of access
 

• amount of data sent in bytes
 

• type of browser used
 

• operating system used
 

• IP address used (in anonymous form)

This data is stored in the log files of our system. Experience shows that the storage period is 30 days. The above data is not stored together with other personal data.

It is necessary for our system to temporarily store the IP address in order for the website to be delivered to your computer. Your IP address must remain stored for the duration of the use of the website. Storage in log files is therefore necessary to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use this data to optimise our website and protect our information technology systems. The data will not be used for marketing purposes in this context. The legal basis for this temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 lit. f) GDPR and sec. 11 para. 1 lit. f) POPIA. Our legitimate interest is to be able to make our website available to you in a functional way.

In principle, the data will only be stored until the purpose of its collection is achieved. If data is only required for provision of the website, the requirement lapses when the respective session is ended. Your data will then be automatically deleted.

Insofar as this data is stored for statistical evaluation for the purpose of operation, safety (security) and optimisation of this website, it is deleted as follows:

With regard to the logs that we collect centrally (i.e. both error and access logs), the last parts of IPv4 (last 16-bit) and IPv6 (last 32-bit) addresses that appear in the logs are overwritten after a maximum of 24 hours. We delete log files on the entities where they arise after 7 days and do not change them before.    

We do not collect logs of e-mails sent by customers.

However, we reserve the right to check the data retrospectively if there is a legitimate suspicion of illegal use on the basis of specific evidence. Data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 lit. c) GDPR in connection with Art. 25 and 32 GDPR and sec. 11 para. 1 lit. c) POPIA in connection with sec. 19 POPIA.

  1.      2. Use of cookies

We use "cookies" on our website. These are text files that are stored in or by your Internet browser on your computer system. When you visit our website, a cookie may be stored on your system. This contains an individual string, which can be used to identify your browser the next time you visit the website.

In the following sections on i) ("Technical cookies"), ii) ("Analytical cookies"), iii) ("Video cookies"), iv. (Audio cookies), as well as v. (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter), we explain in detail which types of cookies we use and which data is processed there on the basis of which legal basis.

Unless stated otherwise in the following statements, the following applies for the storage period, irrespective of the type and purpose of the cookies:

You have full control over the use of cookies. These are stored on your computer and the data is transferred from the computer to our site. Most browsers are set to accept cookies by default, but changing the browser settings can disable or restrict the transfer of cookies. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted by you at any time. This can also be done automatically by setting your browser accordingly.

If cookies are generally disabled for our website, it may not be possible to use all functions of the website in full.

When you visit our website, you will be informed about the above use of cookies by means of an info banner and referred to this Data Protection Statement. We ask you to consent to the use of technical ‘non-essential’ cookies, which you grant by clicking on the button "Accept all" or "Save and close". For all technical non-essential cookie types, the legal basis for processing is, in this respect, your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 lit. a GDPR and sec. 6 para. 1 lit. a) POPIA. If your consent extends to the transmission of your data to service providers from the USA, your explicit consent in accordance with Art. 49 para. 1 clause 1 lit. a) GDPR and sec. 72 para. 1 lit.b) POPIA is the legal basis for transmission. The legal basis for the use of technical cookies is our legitimate interest in a functional and secure website according to Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 lit. f) GDPR and sec. 11 para. 1 lit. f) POPIA.

You can revoke and change your saved cookie settings at any time with effect for the future by clicking on the following link: Change cookie settings.

For the management of our cookies we use the Google Tag Manager from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter: “Google”). Tag Manager captures interactions that occur on our website. It then forwards these to the connected Google Analytics and Google Search Console tools. Evaluation of the data itself is not possible with the Tag Manager. This is done exclusively by the above-mentioned connected tools. You can change the settings for data processing via the Google Tag Manager in the cookie settings below.

  1. Technical cookies

Some features of our website require that the browser be recognised even after a page change. These functions would not be possible without the use of cookies. The following data is stored and transmitted in the cookies:

  • Consent or refusal to set cookies

 

We require technical cookies for the following applications:

  • Re-identification of the selection when the page is visited again with regard to the setting of cookies

 

If our technical cookies are absolutely necessary, the processing of your personal data is carried out in order to protect our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 lit. f) GDPR and sec. 11 para. 1 lit. f) POPIA as the legal basis. Our legitimate interest lies in ensuring the functionality of our website. The data collected by technical cookies is not used for creating user profiles.

If you refuse to use these cookies and configure your browser accordingly, our website will not recognise your browser and it may result in certain contents being inaccessible or data (e.g. from an input template) being lost.

The technical cookies used are "session cookies" and are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. 

  1.  Analytical cookies

We also use cookies on our website to analyse your browsing behaviour. The data collected in this context is made anonymous by means of technical precautions. The data can then no longer be assigned to you. This data is not stored with your other personal data.

The following data can be transmitted in this way:

  1. Search terms entered
  2. Origin of website visitors
  3. Duration of the visitors
  4. Frequency of page views
  5. Use of website functions

The use of the analytical cookies is for the purpose of improving the quality of our website and its contents. The analytical cookies show us how the website is used and we can thus continuously optimise our offering.

Google Analytics & Google Tag Manager

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, if you have consented to it. We have installed the Google Tag Manager as an extension of Google Analytics. These services use cookies. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the online offering is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google uses this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offering, to compile reports about the activities within this online offering, and to provide us with further services related to the use of this online offering and internet usage. Pseudonymous usage profiles can be created from the processed data.

We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymisation enabled. This means that, within Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, your IP address will be shortened by Google. The full IP address will only be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases. The IP address provided by your browser will not be merged with other Google data.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; you can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie that relates to your use of the online offering and prevent Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Google may use Google Analytics to connect your data to other personal data, such as your personal account or user data from your other devices, and process it for its own purposes. Government agencies in the United States could gain access to this data.

For more information on Google's use of data for advertising purposes, and for options for setting up and objecting to data collection, please visit Google's website: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/partners/ (“how Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services”), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads ("advertising"), http://www.google.de/settings/ads (“control theinformation Google uses to show you ads”), and www.google.com/ads/preferences/ (“ad personalization”).

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 lit. a) GDPR  and sec. 11 para. 1 lit. a) POPIA and, regarding the possible transmission of data to the USA, according to Art. 49 para. 1 clause 1 lit. a) GDPR and sec. 72 para 1 lit.b) POPIA. You can revoke your given consent at any time with effect for the future. With regard to the transfer of data to the USA, we would like to point out that, due to US law, a level of data protection comparable to the legal situation in the European Union, in Germany or in South Africa cannot be guaranteed in the USA. This is because, with the possibility of access by security services based in the USA, there are no restrictions and guarantees in your favour with regard to the proportionality of access to your personal data. Furthermore, the law in the USA does not guarantee effective legal protection against such interventions.

Depending on the cookie type, the storage duration of these cookies is between 10 minutes and 24 months (depending on the page range).

Google Maps

If you have consented to it, we use Google Maps, an online map service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google will use this information on our behalf to make it easier for users to get to HSS offices, venues and educational centres. Pseudonymous usage profiles can be created from the processed data.

We only use Google Maps with IP anonymisation enabled. This means that, within Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, your IP address will be shortened by Google. The full IP address will only be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases. The IP address provided by your browser will not be merged with other Google data.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; you can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie that relates to your use of the online offering and prevent Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Google may use Google Maps to connect your data to other personal data, such as your personal account or user data from your other devices, and process it for its own purposes. Government agencies in the United States could gain access to this data.

For more information on Google's use of data for advertising purposes, and for options for setting up and objecting to data collection, please visit Google's website: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/partners/ (“how Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services”), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“advertising”), http://www.google.de/settings/ads ("control the information Google uses to show you ads"), and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/ (“ad personalization”).

The legal basis for the use of Google Maps is your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 lit. a) GDPR and sec. 11 para. 1 lit. a) POPIA and, regarding the possible transmission of data to the USA, according to Art. 49 para. 1 clause 1 lit. a) GDPR and sec. 72 para. 1 lit.b) POPIA. You can revoke your given consent at any time with effect for the future. With regard to the transfer of data to the USA, we would like to point out that, due to US law, a level of data protection comparable to the legal situation in the European Union, in Germany or in South Africa cannot be guaranteed in the USA. This is because, with the possibility of access by security services based in the USA, there are no restrictions and guarantees in your favour with regard to the proportionality of access to your personal data. Furthermore, the law in the USA does not guarantee effective legal protection against such interventions.

Google Ads

We use Google Ads on our website, an online advertising tool from Google that enables "remarketing". This enables customised advertising based on your browsing habits on other websites in the Google Display Network (Google, "Google Ads" and other websites). We can also use Google Ads to display adverts in Google search results or when using Google Maps.

Your browsing behaviour on our website is analysed so that you can see advertisements matching your interests on other websites. For this purpose, Google uses cookies to identify your browser on a particular computer, but not a person or a user. Personal data is not saved.

We only use Google Ads with IP anonymisation enabled. This means that, within Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, your IP address will be shortened by Google. The full IP address will only be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases. The IP address provided by your browser will not be merged with other Google data.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly: you can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie that relates to your use of the online offering and prevent Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from the following link: policies.google.com/technologies/ads

We also use "conversion tracking", which is also part of Google Ads. When you click on an advertisement placed by Google, a corresponding cookie is stored on your system. In this case too, no personal data nor any other data which could identify a specific user or a person is processed.

The cookie is used to generate statistics about "conversion rates", which in simple terms, shows the relationship between visiting a site and successful sales.

The legal basis for the use of Google Adwords is your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 clause 1 lit. a) GDPR and sec. 11 para. 1 lit. a) POPIA and, regarding the possible transmission of data to the USA, according to Art. 49 para. 1 clause 1 lit. a) GDPR and sec. 72 para. 1 lit.b) POPIA. You can revoke your given consent at any time with effect for the future. With regard to the transfer of data to the USA, we would like to point out that, due to US law, a level of data protection comparable to the legal situation in the European Union, in Germany, or in South Africa cannot be guaranteed in the USA. This is because, with the possibility of access by security services based in the USA, there are no restrictions and guarantees in your favour with regard to the proportionality of access to your personal data. Furthermore, the law in the USA does not guarantee effective legal protection against such interventions.

Cookies for conversion tracking by Google Ads become inactive after 30 days. To disable personalised advertising and conversion tracking by Google, read: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de
