#Berlin5GWeek Statement of Data Protection Conditions for the Internet

October 1st, 2013


The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung e.V. (Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft) takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. When we process the personal data that is collected during your visits to our Web site, we always observe the rules laid down in the applicable data protection laws. Your data will not be disclosed publicly by us, nor transferred to any third parties without your consent. In the following sections, we explain what types of data we record when you visit our Web site, and precisely how they are used: Content:

1. Recording and processing of data in connection with access over the Internet

Wenn Sie unsere Webseiten besuchen, speichern unsere When you visit our Web site, our Web server makes a temporary record of each access and stores it in a log file. The following data are recorded, and stored until an automatic deletion date:

  1. IP address of the requesting processor
  2. Date and time of access
  3. Name and URL of the downloaded file
  4. Volume of data transmitted
  5. Indication whether download was successful
  6. Data identifying the browser software and operating system
  7. Web site from which our site was accessed
  8. Name of your Internet service provider

The purpose of recording these data is to allow use of the Web site (connection setup), for system security, for technical administration of the network infrastructure and in order to op-timize our Internet service. The IP address is only evaluated in the event of fraudulent access to the network infrastructure of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.

Apart from the special cases cited above, we do not process personal data without first obtaining your explicit consent to do so. Pseudonymous user profiles can be created as stated under web analysis (see below).

​2. Use and transfer of personal data

All use of your personal data is confined to the purposes stated above, and is only under-taken to the extent necessary for these purposes. Your data is not disclosed to third parties.

Personal data will not be transferred to government bodies or public authorities except in order to comply with mandatory national legislation or if the transfer of such data should be necessary in order to take legal action in cases of fraudulent access to our network infrastructure. Personal data will not be transferred for any other purpose.

​3. Cookies

We don’t normally use cookies on our Web site, but in certain exceptional cases we may use cookies which place technical session-control data in your browser’s memory. These data are automatically erased at the latest when you close your browser.

If, exceptionally, one of our applications requires the storage of personal data in a cookie, for instance a user ID, we will point out you to it.

Of course, it is perfectly possible to consult our Web site without the use of cookies. Please note, however, that most browsers are programmed to accept cookies in their de-fault configuration. You can prevent this by changing the appropriate setting in the browser options. If you set the browser to refuse all cookies, this may restrict your use of certain functions on our Website

​4. Web analysis

Personal user profiles are not created. However, Section 15 (3) of the Telemedia Act (TMG) permits the use of user profiles under a pseudonym for the purpose of advertising, market research and the structuring of offers in line with the user's needs provided that the user does not object to this:

We also use web analysis services on our web pages, for example from etracker or WiredMinds, which carry out the web analysis on our behalf as contract processors (see the websites of www.wiredminds.de for these providers). Their services have been checked by the supervisory authorities and/or experts and meet all requirements under German and European data protection laws.

Using the technologies of these providers, data is collected and stored on our website. From this data, user profiles are produced under a pseudonym for marketing and optimi-zation purposes, for which cookies may be used. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache memory of the site visitor's web browser. The cookies enable the web browser to be recognized. Furthermore, your user behavior can be measured via a JavaScript code and data collected in this connection can be sent directly to the provider's servers in Germany or the EU via an HTML connection. Without your express consent, the data collected using the tracking technologies will not be used to personally identify you and will not be combined with the personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. No cross-website analysis will be carried out either.

If you wish to technically stop the tracking, you can deactivate JavaScript and cookies in your web browser. Consent for the collection and storage of data can also be refused with effect for the future at any time. Please follow this link to refuse the service provided by WiredMinds:

​5. Security

The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft implements technical and organizational security measures to safeguard stored personal data against inadvertent or deliberate manipulation, loss or destruction and against access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously im-proved in line with technological progress.

​6. Links to Web sites operated by other providers

Our Web pages may contain links to other providers’ Web pages. We would like to point out that this statement of data protection conditions applies exclusively to the Web pages managed by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. We have no way of influencing the practices of other providers with respect to data protection, nor do we carry out any checks to ensure that they conform with the relevant legislation.

​7. Right to information and contact data

You have a legal right to inspect any stored data concerning your person, and also the right to demand their correction or deletion, and to withdraw your consent for their further use.

In some cases, if you are a registered user of certain services provided by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, we offer you the possibility of inspecting these data online, and even of deleting or modifying the data yourself, via a user account.

If you wish to obtain information on your personal data, or want us to correct or erase such data, or if you have any other questions concerning the use of personal data held by us, please contact:

data-protection[at]zv.fraunhofer.de

​8. Acceptance, validity and modification of data protection conditions

By using our Web site, you implicitly agree to accept the use of your personal data as specified above. This present statement of data protection conditions came into effect on October 1st, 2013. As our Web site evolves, and new technologies come into use, it may become necessary to amend the statement of data protection conditions. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft reserves the right to modify its data protection conditions at any time, with effect as of a future date. We recommend that you reread the latest version from time to time.
