We take data protection very seriously and treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory regulations.
If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

The data collected is used for statistical evaluations and to improve the website. We reserve the right to check the server log files retrospectively if there are concrete indications of illegal use.
4. handling personal data
Personal data is any information that can be used to identify you personally and that can be traced back to you - for example, your name, email address and telephone number.
The IZT only collects and uses personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the data collection by double opt-in, i.e. also with an e-mail confirmation.
5. handling of contact data
If you contact the IZT using the contact options provided, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. Your data will not be passed on to third parties unless otherwise stipulated by law.
6. dealing with comments and contributions
If you leave a post or comment on this website, your IP address will be stored. This serves the security of the IZT as website operator - only within the scope of legal obligations.
7. google analytics
This website does not use the "Google Analytics" service.
8. social media buttons with data protection (Shariff)
The Facebook, Google+ and Twitter "Like" buttons are a privacy issue. Normally, these social plugins result in all visitors to a page being immediately recorded by these services with their IP address and their further activities on the internet being logged. This happens even if the users do not click on any of the buttons.
To prevent this, the IZT uses the Shariff method on its website. Our social buttons only establish direct contact between the social network and visitors when the latter actively click on the share button. If the users are already logged in to a social network, this is done without another window for Facebook and Google+. On Twitter, a pop-up window appears in which the text of the tweet can still be edited.
Users can therefore post the content of www.izt.de on social networks without the latter being able to create complete surfing profiles. With the Shariff method, the IZT takes the data protection interests of its visitors into account as far as is possible according to the current state of the art. The Shariff method is already used by many websites to protect users. The starting point was an initiative by Heise de, where you can find more information on the current state of the discussion.
9. online surveys via Sosci Survey
We are pleased if you participate in our online surveys. On projekte.izt.de we only collect the information mentioned above under access data. When a questionnaire is called up, a serial number is automatically assigned, which ensures that we can allocate the different pages of the questionnaire.
If you are registered with the Stakeholder Panel TA for our panel surveys for the German Bundestag, we will automatically send you invitations to these surveys. Once you have completed your questionnaire, it is no longer possible to assign it to your e-mail entry. The assignment of the record to an address entry is deleted when the interview is completed. The serial number sent with the invitation is then changed to "anonymous".
Occasionally, we invite a closed group of people to participate in a survey in several survey waves. In this case, we generate a personal link during this period. After the survey is completed, this link is deleted.
10. newsletter subscription
We would like to inform you about our newsletter. This is usually published quarterly. If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter, you must provide a valid e-mail address and answer our confirmation request (double opt-in).
Newsletter2Go is used as the newsletter software. Your data will be transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH. Newsletter2Go is prohibited from selling your data and using it for purposes other than sending newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a German, certified provider, which was selected according to the requirements of the Data Protection Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act.
You can find more information here:
You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.
11. rights of users: information, correction and deletion
Upon request, we will inform you which personal data about you has been stored. Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to retain data (e.g. data retention), you have a right to have incorrect data corrected and to have your personal data blocked or deleted.
If the use of personal data is based on your consent, you can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. Please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
12. handling of data from applicants
After receipt of your documents, we will inform you about the type of data collection. Therefore send applications only to firstname.lastname@example.org.
