Data Protection

When general DHZB web pages are accessed, information on the number of visitors to a page is stored in anonymous form in protocol files for statistical purposes. The information recorded consists of the fact that a document was called up and when. No connection to the individual user can be made.  When a user writes to us using an email address given on the DHZB web pages, it is assumed that the user is in agreement with the DHZB replying to the email address used to send the message.
When the DHZB web pages allow personal data (email addresses, names, addresses) to be entered, providing them is the decision of the user, on an entirely voluntary basis. We draw users’ attention to the fact that all data transmission through the internet is insecure and that the information may therefore be visible to third parties who might use or falsify it. Personal data are stored until the user’s query has been answered. They are not passed on to any third party or used for any purpose other than that intended.
