§ 3 Collection of personal data when visiting our website
(1) In the event of merely informative use of the website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we will only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website and to ensure its stability and security (the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) (f) sent. 1 GDPR):
- shortened IP address
- Date and time of the request
- Content of the request (concrete page)
- Access status/HTTP status code
- Transmitted amount of data
- Website from which the request arises
- Operating system and its interface
- Language and version of the browser software
(3) In addition, to improve usability, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your device for a specified period of time. If you visit our site again to take advantage of our services, it will automatically recognise that you have already been with us and what inputs and settings you have made, so you do not have to re-enter them.
(5) The data processed by cookies is required for the purposes mentioned, namely to protect our legitimate interests as well as the interests of third parties pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) sent. 1 GDPR.
(6) Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a notice always appears before a new cookie is set. However, disabling cookies completely may mean that you can not use all features of our website.
§ 5 Social media plug-ins
(2) We have no influence on the collected data and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, the purpose of the processing or the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.
(3) The plug-in provider saves the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for purposes of advertising, market research and/or tailor-made website design. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for non-logged-in users) for the presentation of needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the formation of these user profiles; you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins, we offer you the opportunity to interact with social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 (1) (f) sent. 1 GDPR.
(4) The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged into the plug-in provider, your data collected from us will be assigned directly to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button and, for example, if you link to the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend logging out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this will prevent assignment to your profile with the plug-in provider.
(5) For more information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the privacy policies of these providers, which are provided below. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy.

(1) Insofar as you wish to use our portal, you must register yourself by providing your email address, a password you have chosen and your own user name. There is no requirement to provide your real name; pseudonymous use is possible. We use the so-called double-opt-in procedure for registration, i.e. your registration is only completed if you have previously confirmed your registration via a confirmation email sent to you for this purpose by clicking on the link contained therein. If your confirmation is not received within [24 hours], your registration will be automatically deleted from our database. The specification of the aforementioned data is mandatory; you can voluntarily provide all other information when using our portal.

Your entire profile with the data you have released is also visible to all members who have confirmed you as a personal contact. If you make content accessible to your personal contacts that you do not send by private message, this content will be visible to third parties as far as your personal contact has granted their approval. If you post in public groups, this will be visible to all registered members of the portal.
(4) In order to prevent unauthorised access by third parties to your personal data, in particular financial data, the connection is encrypted using TLS technology.
§ 9 Data security
We use the popular SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method within you visit our site, in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. In general, this is 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we will use 128-bit v3 technology instead.

We also take appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
§ 11 General
We at BONGARD & LIND also take corporate privacy seriously.
The relevant legal provisions require that personal data be processed in a manner that ensures the rights of data subjects to the confidentiality and integrity of their data. According to these regulations, it is forbidden to process personal data unlawfully or without authorisation or to intentionally or unintentionally violate the security of the processing in such a way as to destroy, to lose, to change, or to disclose or allow access to unauthorised parties.
For this reason, our employees have been obliged to maintain secrecy and, in particular, to comply with the data protection provisions for confidentiality pursuant to Art. 5 (1) (f), Art. 32 (4) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Employees are therefore prohibited from processing, using or making personal data accessible to third parties without authorisation. If external service providers are commissioned by BONGARD & LIND to process personal data for the first time, they will be contractually obliged to comply with the requirements of Art. 28 GDPR.
