// Privacy policy

The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation by third parties for the purpose of sending advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby expressly prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example through spam mails.

Your visit to the website of ia.hs-mainz.de is logged. Essentially, the IP address currently used by your PC, the date and time, the browser type and the operating system of your PC as well as the pages you have viewed are recorded. These data do not belong to personal data, but are anonymised. We use this data exclusively for statistical purposes and to improve our services.

When you visit our website, data may be stored on your computer, so-called "cookies", which make it easier for you to use our website. However, you have the option of deactivating this function within your web browser; this may lead to restrictions in the usability of our pages.

Personal data transmitted to us, such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address, will only be processed for correspondence with you and only for the purpose for which you have provided us with the data. We will not pass on your data to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so or you have given us your prior consent. All personal data will only be stored by us for as long as is necessary for the respective purpose or for as long as we are legally obliged to store it.

If you have provided us with personal data, you can have it deleted at any time.

If you have any questions, we offer you the possibility of contacting us by e-mail. In doing so, it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address so that we can answer the enquiry.

Data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily given consent. The personal data we collect (e-mail address, your name and address, if applicable, etc.) will be deleted after we have dealt with your enquiry.

Within our online offer, we use content or service offers of third parties on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR) to integrate content or services offered by third-party providers, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as "content").

This always requires that the third-party providers of this content are aware of the IP address of the user, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to their browser. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. We endeavour to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. Third-party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. The "pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user's device and may contain, among other things, technical information about the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information about the use of our online offering, as well as being linked to such information from other sources.

We can embed the videos of the platform "Vimeo" of the provider Vimeo Inc., Attention: Legal Department, 555 West 18th Street New York, New York 10011, USA. Privacy policy: vimeo.com/privacy. We point out that Vimeo may use Google Analytics and refer to the data protection declaration google.com/policies/privacy as well as opt-out options for Google Analytics tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout or Google's settings for data use for marketing purposes adssettings.google.com.

We integrate the videos of the platform "YouTube" of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy policy: google.com/policies/privacy, Opt-Out: adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

If you no longer agree to the storage of your personal data or if this data has become incorrect, we will arrange for the deletion or blocking of your data or make the necessary corrections (insofar as this is possible under the applicable law) upon your instruction.

Upon request, we will provide you with information free of charge about all personal data we have stored about you.
