Data protection

We take your privacy extremely seriously when processing personal data. The personal data collected from visitors to our website is processed in accordance with the relevant statutory stipulations. Our web pages may contain links to websites of other providers and integrated services (see below) to which this data protection statement does not extend.

Processing of personal data

Although no personalised logs are made of website use, data is collected and exchanged for every visit made to our web pages. BIBB stores data which your browser transmits to our server. The following data is collected.

  • Type and version of your Internet browser

BIBB evaluates this data for statistical purposes only (web statistics) in order to improve our Internet provision. Data for web statistics is collected anonymously (with abbreviated IP address) and cannot be allocated to any specific person. Data is not collated with other data sources.

We use cookies in order to enhance the display of contents.

Personal data is only stored in cases where you yourself provide such data, for example when registering for an event or when ordering information material. The transmission of personal data is encrypted using a procedure in accordance with the latest status of technology (Secure Sockets Layer – SSL).

Surveys and empirical studies

The data collected by BIBB within the scope of surveys and empirical studies is treated confidentially and is used for research purposes only. Responses provided in online surveys are transmitted in encrypted form (Secure Sockets Layer - SSL). Evaluations carried out analyse anonymised datasets only. This makes it impossible to trace data back to an individual respondent.

You have the right at any time to receive information regarding personal information stored on you, the origin of such data and the purpose of the storage. Upon request, we will act in accordance with applicable law in notifying you in writing whether we hold personal information about you and which information we hold. If, despite our best endeavours, information stored is incorrect, we will rectify such information in request. Information about data stored is provided by the BIBB Internet Editing Team.
