The operators of these sites take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidential and in line with the statutory data protection regulations as well as this privacy statement.
Besides the management we have also appointed a company data protection officer for our association. You can contact our data protection officer under the following contact data or by post to us with the key word "Data protection":

We are very pleased that you are visiting our websites. It is principally possible to use our websites without entering personal data. If a data subject would like to use a service of our association via our website it is, as a rule, necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and if there is no legal basis for such processing we will obtain the consent of the data subject. Personal data is information pertaining to your identity. e.g. details such as name, address, phone number or e-mail address, IP address and user ID of (end) devices shall fall under this definition.
We, as the data controller responsible for the processing have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures within the meaning of Art. 32 GDPR in order to ensure as far as possible consistent protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transfers can principally feature security gaps so that an absolute protection of the data against access by third parties cannot be guaranteed. For this reason each data subject is at liberty to also transmit data to us using alternative channels, for example by post.
In order to use our website it is necessary for the IP address to be disclosed at the time of the visit. In certain cases we also require your name and your address as well as further details so that we can provide the requested services. The same shall apply, for example, to the sending of information material and to the reply to individual questions. Insofar as we request you for further data this concerns voluntary information.
Besides us as the responsible body certain categories of data controllers may also be granted access to the data, which are involved in operating the website (system administrators) or external parties (such as third party providers of technical services, hosting providers, IT companies or communication agencies), which are, if necessary, used by the host and service provider. An up-to-date list of these parties involved can be requested at all times from us as the responsible body.
Registration/Login on our website
The data subject has the opportunity to register on our website by providing personal data. This takes place either as a member or as a consultant, after this person has previously communicated the access data that are necessary for this purpose and – by way of transmitting the data protection notices for members of the association – was notified about the use. The legal basis for the thus associated data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR. Which personal data are transmitted to us for the processing hereby can be derived from the respective input mask that is used for the registration, including the server log data (see below). The personal data entered by the data subject will be collected and stored exclusively for internal use by us and for our own purposes. We can arrange for the forwarding to one or several contract data processors, which also exclusively use the personal data for internal use that is to be attributed to us.
By a registration on our website, the IP address allocated to the data subject by the Internet-Service-Provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are also saved. These data are stored in view of the fact that only this way can the misuse of our services be prevented and these data, if required, make it possible to investigate committed criminal offences. In this respect, the storage of these data is necessary for the protection of the party responsible for the processing pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. These data are principally not forwarded to third parties if there is no statutory obligation for the forwarding or the forwarding serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.
The registration of the data subject by the voluntary entry of personal data serves the party responsible for the processing to offer contents or services to the data subject, which owing to the nature of the matter can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons have the possibility to change the personal data entered with the registration or to have these deleted from the data stocks of the party responsible for the processing in full at all times.
