Declaration pertaining to the Obligation to provide Information within the Meaning of the Data Protection Act

The protection of your personal data is a matter of particular importance to us. Personal data are all data by means of which you may personally be identified. The processing of your data is effected exclusively on the basis of the valid statutory provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) and the Telecommunications Act (TKG).

In this data protection declaration, we wish to inform you as to the data processing that takes place in the context of usage of our website.

Usage Data for Statistical Purposes

When you visit our websites, temporary, so-called usage, data will be evaluated for statistical purposes as a protocol in order to improve the quality of our websites. This data set consists of

  • The name and address of the requested contents,
  • The date and time of the request,
  • The volume of data transmitted,
  • The access status (content transmitted, content not found),
  • The description of the web browser and operating system used,
  • The referral link that indicates the site via which you accessed ours,
  • The IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened in such a way that no personal reference may be established any longer.

The protocol data referred to shall only be evaluated after having been rendered anonymous.

Data Security

In order to protect your data against undesired access to as great a degree as possible, we take a number of technical and organisational measures. We deploy an encrypting process on our websites. In this way, your details will be transmitted from your computer to our server and vice versa via the internet by means of TLS encrypting. You may recognise this as a general rule by the fact that, in the status bar of your browser, the lock symbol is closed and the address line begins with https://.


Contact Us

If you contact us by e-mail, the data you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and in case there should be any follow-up questions. We shall use these data in order to answer your inquiry on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 lit. f GDPR. We shall not forward these data without your consent.

Your data shall only be used for the purpose of answering your inquiry. We shall delete your data, inasmuch as they should no longer be required and no statutory archiving obligations should oppose this.

You may object to the processing at any time. For this purpose, please contact datenschutz@wpd.de.


Necessary Cookies

On our websites we deploy cookies that are necessary for the usage of said websites.

Cookies are small text files that can be stored on your terminal device and read out from there. A distinction is made between session cookies that are deleted again as soon as you close your browser and permanent cookies that continue to be stored after the individual session has been terminated.

We do not deploy these necessary cookies for analysing, tracking or advertising purposes.

These cookies in part merely contain information pertaining to certain settings and may not be traced to a particular person. They may also be necessary in order to enable user navigation, security and realisation of the site.

We use these cookies on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 lit. f GDPR.

You may set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the placement of cookies. The use of cookies is thus made transparent for you. You may also at any time delete cookies via our banner (link) or over the appropriate setting of your browser and prevent the setting of new cookies. Please note that, in this case, it might not be possible to display our websites and that some functions may no longer be technically available.


Registration for the wpd Inside Newsletter

You may order our newsletter from our internet site wpd.de/aktuelles/wpd-inside/. Please note that, for the registration for our newsletter, we require certain data (your e-mail address is the minimum requirement).

The newsletter will only be dispatched should you have given your explicit consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 lit. a GDPR. After placement of an order on our websites, you will receive a confirmation e-mail to the e-mail address you have indicated (so-called double opt-in). You may revoke your consent at any time. An uncomplicated possible way of doing so is, for example, available to you in the shape of the link to de-registration to be found in every newsletter.

In the context of registration for the newsletter, we shall, in addition to the data already referred to, also store other data inasmuch as these should be necessary, for example, to enable us to prove that you have ordered our newsletter. This may encompass the storage of the full IP address at the time of the ordering or confirmation of the newsletter, as well as a copy of the confirmation mail sent to us. The relevant data processing shall be effected on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 Clause1 lit. f GDPR and for the purpose of being able to account for the legality of sending the newsletter.


Deletion or Blocking of the Data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We accordingly only store your personal data for as long as this is necessary in order to attain the purposes referred to herein, or in accordance with the manifold storage periods provided for by the legislator. Once the respective purpose has ceased to apply or the periods referred to have expired, the data in question will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.


Use of Matomo

In order to be able to tailor our websites according to needs, we deploy the web analysis tool “Matomo”. Matomo creates usage profiles on the basis of pseudonyms. To this end, permanent cookies are stored upon your terminal device and read out by us. In this way we are able to recognise returning visitors and count them as such.

Data processing is effected on the basis of your consent granted in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 lit. a GDPR, inasmuch as you have submitted your consent via our banner.

You may revoke your consent at any time. In order to do so, please follow this link and undertake the relevant settings via our banner.

The Matomo programme is an open-source project. Information from the external provider pertaining to data protection may be retrieved from https://matomo.org/privacy/
