When you simply visit our website, i.e. if you do not contact us by email or another channel, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you want to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security:
- IP address

- time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- content of the request (specific page)
- access status / HTTP status code

- b) Establishing contact
If you make use of the opportunity to communicate with us, depending on the communication channel, we may collect your email address and your name, as well as other data that you send us in the event of communication.
This includes e.g. information such as your name, address or telephone number.
c) Subscribing to the newsletter
If you register as a specialist for our newsletter in order to be kept up to date with the latest news in the context of “City of Engineering”, we will collect your name and email address. You also have the opportunity, on a voluntary basis, to tell us your country of origin and your professional activity.
We only use your data for the purpose for which you have provided us with the data, e.g. to process your request sent to us, to include you in our newsletter dispatch. We use the information about your country of origin and your professional activity to better classify the distribution of our newsletter and, if necessary, to expand it in a targeted manner. The two data categories are processed in an aggregated form.
Your data will not be passed on to third parties, unless we are legally obliged to do so (e.g. request from an authority or a court) or you have given us your consent.
4. LEGAL BASIS OF THE COLLECTION, PROCESSING AND USE OF PERSONAL DATA
The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is our legitimate interest. Our legitimate interest is the functionality of our website and in this context, of course, answering your inquiries. The legal basis for processing within the scope of the newsletter registration is your consent, which you can withdraw at any time with future effect.
DELETION OF DATA
Your data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the purpose for which it was collected (after your visit to our website or when processing your request by email / post / contact form / telephone) and the deletion does not conflict with any statutory retention requirements.
- USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services related to website and internet use.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by using the browser plug-in available under the following link where you can download and install it: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or otherwise set an opt-out below.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. As a result, IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, so that they cannot be linked to a person. As far as the data collected about you is personal, it is immediately excluded, and the personal data is deleted immediately.
We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. Using the statistics obtained, we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data are transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR, as we strive for a better understanding of the use of our website and want to constantly improve the offer.
7. USE OF VIMEO
Our website uses plugins from the Vimeo video portal. The provider is Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.
If you visit one of our pages equipped with a Vimeo plugin, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established. The Vimeo server is informed which of our pages you have visited. Vimeo also obtains your IP address. This also applies if you are not logged in to Vimeo or do not have a Vimeo account. The information collected by Vimeo is transmitted to the Vimeo server in the USA.
If you are logged into your Vimeo account, you enable Vimeo to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account. Further information on the handling of user data can be found in Vimeo’s data protection declaration at: https://vimeo.com/privacy.

We have taken various technical and organizational measures to ensure that the data we collect and process is protected against unauthorized access, loss, destruction or manipulation. Legal requirements regarding data protection are of course observed. However, we would like to point out that no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure.
