Data Privacy Statement
Scope of application
This data privacy statement informs users about the type, scope and purposes of personal data acquisition and usage by the responsible website provider BT-Group Holding GmbH. The legal bases for data privacy are stated in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Telecommunications Act.
Access data/Server logfiles
The provider (or his webspace provider) acquires data about each access instance to the offer (so-called server logfiles). Access data includes: name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, transmitted data volume, notification about successful access, the user's browser type and version, operating system, referrer URL (previously visited site), IP address and requesting provider.
The provider exclusively uses protocol data for statistical evaluations for operating, security and optimisation purposes of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently examine protocol data in case of justified suspicions of illicit usage based on specific indications.
Processing personal data
Personal data refers to information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person, which includes the user's name, e-mail address or telephone number, but also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites have been viewed by someone.
The provider exclusively acquires, uses or forwards personal data if this is legally permissible or if the user has consented to data acquisition.
When establishing contact with the provider (for example via the contact form or e-mail), user information is saved for processing the request as well as in case of follow-up questions.
Integration of services and third-party content
Third-party content such as YouTube videos, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites may be integrated within this online offer, which always presumes that these content providers (in the following referred to as "third-party providers") are able to perceive the user's IP address since, without the IP address, content could not be sent to the user's browser. Thus, the IP address is required for displaying content. We strive to only use content whose respective providers exclusively use IP addresses for delivering content. However, we have no influence on the saving of IP addresses by third-party providers, e.g. for statistical purposes. In this matter, we will inform users to the best of our knowledge.
Cookies are small files that make it possible to save specific device-related information on the user's access device (PC, smartphone or the like). These files enhance the user-friendliness of websites and thus benefit users (e.g. saving of login data). Cookies are also used to acquire statistical data about website usage and analyse this data in order to improve the offer. Users can influence the usage of cookies. Most browsers provide the option to limit or completely prevent the saving of cookies. However, we want to point out that usage and specifically usage convenience may be limited when cookies are disabled.
This offer uses Google Analytics, a web-analysis service by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "Cookies", text files that are saved on the computer of users for the purpose of analysing the user's website usage. Information about website usage generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there.
However, Google shortens the user's IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contractual states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area in case IP anonymisation is activated for the website. Google only transmits the full IP address to a Google server in the US and shortens it there in exceptional cases. IP anonymisation is activated for this website. Google uses this information on behalf of the website operator in order to evaluate website usage by users, compile reports about website activities and provide other services associated with website and Internet usage to the website operator.
The IP address transmitted from your browser within the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other data of Google. Users can prevent the storing of cookies with a respective setting in your browser software. However, this offer specifically points out that, in such a case, it may not be possible to use all website functions to the full extent. Furthermore, users can prevent the acquisition of data generated by the cookie regarding the user's website usage (including the user's IP address) for Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin via the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Further information about data usage for advertisement purposes by Google as well as configuration and objection options are available on the following Google websites: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners/ "Data usage by Google related to your usage of our partner's websites and apps"), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads ("Data usage for advertisement purposes"), http://www.google.de/settings/ads ("Managing information used by Google for displaying advertisements") and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/ ("Determining which advertisement Google displays").
We have activated the function IP anonymization on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
This website contains links to websites of external providers. The links have been carefully examined prior to establishing the link. However, the possibility of subsequent content changes by the operator cannot be excluded. This data privacy statement is exclusively applicable to the Internet presence of BT-Group Holding GmbH. No liability is assumed for the content and correctness of data privacy statements of other providers' Internet presences. Please check the respective Internet presence or contact the respective provider if you require information regarding the data privacy statements of other providers.
