I. Provision of the website and creation of log files

Each time this website is accessed at books.eslarn-net.de, the server and portal software automatically collect data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

The data is stored in the server’s log files. This does not affect the IP addresses of the users or other data that enable the data to be assigned to a user.

A storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. To do this, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session. This also includes our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case as soon as the respective session has ended or you leave this website. 5. Opposition and removal option The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. There is consequently no possibility of objection on the part of the user. If you do not want this, you have to leave this website immediately and do not visit it again.

III. Integration of external content

We use (partially) external dynamic content to optimize the presentation and offer of our website. When you visit the website, an API request is automatically sent to the server of the respective content provider, in which certain log data (e.g. the IP address of the user) is transmitted. The dynamic content is then transmitted to our website and displayed there.

We use external content in connection with the following functionalities:
1. Integration of YouTube videos

On our website we sometimes have videos from the YouTube portal of YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave. San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (“YouTube”) integrated. When the videos are played, log data is transmitted to the YouTube servers in the USA. This processing takes place on the basis of our predominantly legitimate interest in an optimal presentation of our information offer, as well as the fulfillment of our journalistic information obligation according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit.f GDPR.

YouTube is certified under:

2. Google Maps

When the maps are displayed, data, including your IP address and your location, are transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. This processing takes place on the basis of our predominantly legitimate interest in an optimal presentation of our information offer or for the purpose of fulfilling our journalistic information obligations according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR.

3. Embedded content from other websites, so-called re-blogs,
Data transfer to non-EU countries

Articles on this page may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.) from other websites. This content behaves as if you were to visit this website originally.

These embedded websites can collect data about you, use cookies, third-party tracking software, and record and / or process your interaction with the embedded content (playing a video, selecting one or specific images, etc.).

This data can (also) be transferred to non-EU countries, processed and evaluated there. We have no influence on this, as we regard this content as part of our duty to provide information and therefore have to include it. If you do not agree that personal data about you is collected in this way and, if necessary, processed, or transferred to non-EU countries for the purpose of processing, then you are no longer allowed to use this website.

4. External content likeGoogle (R) fonts

The theme operating the blog uses so-called “Google (R) Fonts”. We have implemented a plugin which blocks the connection to the GoogleFontDatabase, and stores the Fonts only on our own server in Germany.

Since these fonts are reloaded as required, the establishment of a connection to Google cannot be completely ruled out. We therefore point out the following:

In its original state, ie fonts that are centrally stored by Google (R) LLC servers. in the USA are transmitted to the respective internet pages. Google (R) LLC writes:

“Also, please note that Google LLC is certified under both the EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield frameworks and our certifications can be viewed on the Privacy Shield list.

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI (…)

The Google Fonts API is designed to limit the collection, storage, and use of end-user data to what is needed to serve fonts efficiently.

Use of Google Fonts is unauthenticated. No cookies are sent by website visitors to the Google Fonts API. Requests to the Google Fonts API are made to resource-specific domains, such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com, so that your requests for fonts are separate from and do not contain any credentials you send to google.com while using other Google services that are authenticated, such as Gmail. ”

Nevertheless, we have decided to host Google (R) Fonts on our own server for the time being. In this respect, when using this website – without clicking on further external links and thus calling up other websites – no personal data is transmitted to Google (R) LLC.

IV. Provision of data via email and / or fax contact

1. Description and scope of data processing

You can contact us using the email address provided and a fax number on our website. In this case, the personal data of the user transmitted with the e-mail or fax document transmission will be saved.

If you have a concern about our website or give us research tips, the data can be passed on to third parties in this context. In compliance with journalistic due diligence, no personal data will be passed on, except with the prior written consent of the user. All data transmitted to us are used exclusively for processing the conversation or the intended research.

2. Legal basis for data processing

If the user has given his / her consent, the legal basis for processing the data is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

The legal basis for processing the data that is transmitted in the course of sending an email is Article 6 (1) lit.f GDPR.

3. Purpose of data processing

The processing of personal data serves us only to process the contact. If you contact us by e-mail, there is also the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. For the personal data sent by email, this is the case when the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified.

5. Opposition and removal option

The user has the option to revoke his consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by email, he can object to the storage of his personal data at any time. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued.

The revocation must be sent to oikos-sms@office.eu.org

In this case, all personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted.

V. Usage of analytical tools

Data Privacy

For better planning which information we should offer you, we use the WP plug-in “Statify” as a page access counter.

In direct comparison to statistics services such as Google Analytics, WordPress.com Stats and Matomo (Piwik) Statify doesn’t process and store personal data as e.g. IP addresses – Statify counts site views, not visitors.

Absolute privacy compliance coupled with transparent procedures: A locally in WordPress created database table consists of only four fields (ID, date, source, target) and can be viewed at any time, cleaned up and cleared by the administrator.

In this context, no IP addresses are stored, and the data is not brought in any other way together with the IP addresses of users.

Due to this tracking approach, Statify is 100% compliant with GDPR and serves as an lightweight alternative to other tracking services. Statify’s data is stored for eight days.
