Privacy Policy

Protection of your data is very important to us.

Therefore, compliance with the legal requirements for data protection has a particularly high priority for us.

Therefore, compliance with the legal requirements for data protection has a particularly high priority for us.

On principle, it is possible to use the SKZ websites without supplying any personal information. However, if a data subject wishes to make use of specific services of our company via our website, processing of personal data may become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, the data subject generally has to consent to us processing their data.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and the applicable national data protection regulations. In this privacy notice, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data that we collect, use and process. This privacy notice will also inform data subjects of their rights.

The SKZ as the data controller has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures in order to ensure that all personal data processed via this website is protected as comprehensively as possible. Nevertheless, internet-based transferral of data is in principle subject to security vulnerabilities, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.

1    Definitions
The SKZ Privacy Policy is based on the terms used by the European issuers of directives and regulations in their General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

5    Cookies
On the SKZ website we use "cookies," which are small text files that are stored on your hard drive to identify you for the duration of your visit. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses.

The use of these cookies is intended to make our services more individual, user-friendly, effective and safe. If you do not wish this, you can set your browser to delete cookies from your hard drive, to block all cookies or to receive a warning before any cookie is stored. Under certain circumstances, deleting the cookies may mean that you cannot use all the offered services without restrictions.

6    Collection of general data and information
The SKZ website collects a series of general data and information every time a person or an automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files.

In doing so, the following data conveyed by your browser to us are temporarily stored in a log file:

  • Browser type and version
  • Date and time point of access
  • The IP address of your terminal device
  • The name of your Internet service provider
  • The referrer URL (the website visited immediately beforehand)

The SKZ will not draw any conclusions about the data subject from this general data and information. This information is necessary  

  • to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
  • to optimise the contents of our website as well as the advertising for it,
  • to ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, as well as
  • to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack.

This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by SKZ statistically with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

7    Links to websites of other providers
Our website contains links to other websites - so-called external links. The contents of the targets of these external links are beyond our influence; therefore, we do not take any responsibility for such contents. The responsibility rests with the respective operators of external sites. At the time of creating the external links, no violations were found. Permanent monitoring of external content for legal violations without concrete evidence cannot be reasonably expected from us. Should we become aware of any violations, we will remove the external links immediately.

Personal data is only collected if you provide it on your own accord, for example, when using the following services:

Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we process or leave the data in a third country only if the particular requirements of Art. 44 ff. GDPR are met. This means, for example, processing is carried out on the basis of special guarantees such as a data protection level officially recognised as being equal to that within the EU, or compliance with officially recognised special contractual obligations (called "standard contractual clauses").

14    Data protection provisions concerning the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is surveying, collecting and analysing data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which a data subject has accessed a website ("referrer"), which sub-pages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
Operating company of Google Analytics component is the Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
The data controller uses the suffix "gat.anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. Using this addition, Google shortens and anonymises the IP address of the data subject when accessing our Internet pages from a Member State of the European Union or from another signatory state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports showing us the activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person in question. Cookies have already been explained above. The placement of this cookie enables Google to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which is used by Google, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission settlements.
Cookies are used to store personal information, such as the time of access, the location from which access came and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Whenever you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The data subject can prevent cookies being set by our website at any time, as already described above, by using an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and therefore permanently object to cookies being set. Setting the Internet browser used in this way would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programmes.
Furthermore, it is possible for the data subject to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on via the link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information on visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered a contradiction by Google. If the data subject's information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later time, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person within his/her control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.
Additional information and Google's privacy policy can be found at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail at www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

15    Use of Google Maps
Our online presence uses Google Maps and the Google Maps API to visually display a map and geographical information. When Google Maps is used, Google also collects, processes, and utilises data about the visitor's use of map functions. Further information about how Google processes data can be found in Google's Privacy Policy, which you can access at www.google.com/privacypolicy.html You can also change your settings in the Data Protection Centre so that you can manage and protect your data. You can find the Google Maps terms of use at: www.google.com/intl/de_en/help/terms_maps.html.

16    Duration for which the personal data will be stored
The criterion for the duration for which the personal data will be stored is the statutory retention period in question. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted if it is no longer required to fulfil the contract or for initiating a contract.

17    Legal or contractual provisions to provide the personal data
We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In some cases, it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded if a data subject provides us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contractually or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and about what consequences failure to provide the personal data would have.

18    Further information and contacts
Your trust is important to us. Therefore, we invite you, if you have questions or suggestions regarding "Data Protection at SKZ", to send an e-mail or mail to our data protection officer:

Frankfurter Straße 15-17
97082 Würzburg
