Data protection

Every time a user accesses a webpage hosted by Forschungszentrum GmbH and every time a file is requested, data connected to these processes are stored in a log. These data do not contain personal information; we are unable to trace which user accessed what information. Personal user profiles therefore cannot be created. The data that is saved will be used for statistical purposes only. This information will not be disclosed to third parties.

We use only technical cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer but that do not contain any personal data and only store the status of system login, i.e. these cookies are used to transfer the logged-in status. Their lifetime is restricted to one session.

Our website uses the Piwik web analytics platform. Piwik uses cookies to analyse how a website is used. To this end, the usage information generated by the cookies (including your abbreviated IP address) is transferred to our server and saved in order to analyse usage behaviour, which enables us to optimize our website. During this process, your IP address is immediately made anonymous so that you, as a user, remain anonymous. The information about your behaviour on our website generated by the cookies is not passed on to third parties.

If you do not consent to the storage and evaluation of these data from your visit then you can withdraw this consent at any time by ticking the box below ("Opt out"). In this case, an opt-out cookie will be sent to your browser, which means that Piwik will not collect any data on the session.

Please note: If you delete your cookies, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and you will have to reactive it, if required.

Should you use email to order and/or purchase information material from Forschungszentrum GmbH, your personal data will be saved and used solely for the purpose of sending you the material you requested. If you register by email as a participant for any of the events run by Forschungszentrum GmbH, your personal information will also be saved by us. These personal data will be used solely for registration purposes and related contracts. Personal data will also be passed on to the respective organiser of the event(s). The data will not be used for any other purpose nor will they be disclosed to any other recipients.

The provision of data upon registration implies agreement to their use for this purpose.

Data collected by Forschungszentrum GmbH may be used within the institution itself and by the organisers of the event. To the latter, we will only disclose those data deemed necessary for the provision of the corresponding services. Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH is committed to ensuring the protection of your personal data and the exclusive use of these data for the explicit purposes defined by you. We make every effort to protect your data from loss, misuse, unauthorised access, unauthorised disclosure, falsification and deletion. Within our institution, your data are saved on a password-protected server to which only a limited number of people have access.
