Data protection notice

We are very pleased about your interest in our institute. Data protection is of particular importance for the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH). A use of the internet pages of the LZH is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if an affected person wishes to make use of our institute's special offers via our website, personal data processing may be required. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to the LZH. By means of this privacy policy, our institute wishes to inform the public about the nature, extent and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights under this privacy policy.

The LZH, as the controller, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps so that absolute protection can not be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to submit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.

4. Cookies

a) Description and scope of data processing

The LZH website uses technically necessary cookies as well as cookies required for web analysis by Matomo (formerly "Piwik"). Matomo is deactivated when you visit our website. Only if you actively consent, your usage behavior will be analyzed anonymously.

Cookies are text files that are stored and stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual's browser from other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular web browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, the LZH can provide users of this website with more user-friendly offers that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the sense of the user. Cookies allow us, as already mentioned, to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies need not reenter their credentials each time they visit the website, as this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

Below are links to instructions on how to decline cookies in the four most popular browsers:

Firefox:
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-websites-storing-site-preferences

Internet Explorer:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/Block-or-allow-cookies

Google Chrome:
https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95647?hl=en

Microsoft Edge:
https://privacy.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10-microsoft-edge-and-privacy

If you use another browser, you will find the instructions on the website of the provider or in the help function of your browser. Please note that not all features on our site may work as intended if cookies are declined.

b) Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for processing personal data using cookies is Article 6 (1) point (e) of the GDPR in conjunction with Section 3 of the new BDSG and/or Article 6 (1) point (a) of the GDPR for cookies which require consent.

5. Webanalysis using Matomo

a) Scope of processing personal data

On our website we use the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. Matomo is an open source software for webanalysis. Matomo does not transfer any data to servers outside the control of the LZH. Matomo does not record any session data without your consent.

Matomo uses cookies. These text files are saved on your computer and enable the LZH to analyse how its website is used. The information on usage collected by the cookie is transferred to the LZH server and saved there so that we can analyse user behaviour. For us, your IP address is an anonymous code. This means we have no technical means of identifying you as a registered user. You will remain anonymous as a user.

The LZH regards this analysis as an integral part of its online service. Its aim is to consistently improve the website and align it more closely with user needs.

If you consent to web analytics by Matomo, the following data is stored when individual pages of our website are accessed:

(1) 2 Bytes of the IP address of the user’s accessing system
(2) the website accessed
(3) the website from which the user reached the website accessed here (referrer)
(4) the other web pages visited from the main website accessed
(5) the time spent looking at the website
(6) the frequency with which the website is accessed.

The analysis software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. Storage of the user’s personal data only takes place there. The data is not passed on to third parties.

You can decide here whether or not to allow a web analysis cookie to be stored in your browser to enable the LZH to gather and analyse statistical data.

You can decide here whether or not to allow a web analysis cookie to be stored in your browser to enable the website operator to gather and analyse statistical data. If you decide against this, remove the tick from the box below to store the Matomo deactivation cookie in your browser.

6. Collection of general data and information

The website of the LZH collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by an affected person or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of our server. The following data can be collected

(1) the browser types and versions,
(2) the operating system used by the accessing system,
(3) the website from which an accessing system comes to our website (so-called referrers),
(4) the sub-web pages, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
(5) the date and time of access to the website,
(6) an internet protocol address (IP address),
(7) Name and URL of the called file
(8) Message if the retrieval was successful
(9) the internet service provider of the accessing system and
(10) other similar data and information used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, the LZH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to

(1) to deliver the contents of our website correctlaby,
(2) to optimize the contents of our website for them,
(3) to ensure the permanent functioning of our information technology systems and the technology of our website as well as
(4) To provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyberattack.

This anonymously collected data and information is therefore statistically and further evaluated by the LZH with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our institute in order to ultimately ensure the best possible level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.

The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of its website - for this purpose, the server log files must be collected.

10. Our social media appearances

Data processing through social networks
We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The social networks used by us in detail can be found below. Social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc., can generally analyze your user behavior extensively when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g., like buttons or advertising banners). Therefore, visiting our social media presences triggers numerous processing operations relevant to data protection.

In detail:
If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected under certain circumstances if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data collection takes place, for example, via cookies that are stored on your end device or by recording your IP address.

With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, you can be shown interest-based advertising inside and outside the respective social media presence. Provided you have an account with the respective social network, the interest-based advertising may be displayed on all devices on which you are or were logged in.

Please also note that we cannot track all processing on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, further processing operations may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. Please refer to the terms of use and data protection provisions of the respective social media portals for details.

Legal basis
Our social media presences are intended to ensure the most comprehensive presence possible on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on different legal bases, which are to be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO).

Responsible party and assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability, and complaint) both vis-à-vis us and vis-à-vis the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. vis-à-vis Facebook).

Please note that despite the joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are primarily determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.

Storage period
The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their privacy policy, see below).

13. Legal basis of processing

Art. 6 I lit. A DS-GMO serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. This consent can be revoked at any time. The legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation remains unaffected. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GMO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our institution is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GMO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GMO are based. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GMOs are based. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our institution or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a LZH customer (recital 47, second sentence, DS-BER)

14. Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the LZH or a third party

Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the LZH or a third party
Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GMO is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our members.

 

15. Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

 

16. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor). Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is obliged, for example, to provide us with personal data if our institute concludes a contract with her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data.
