Privacy policy

Privacy policy as set forth in Section 13(1) of the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, TMG)

The subsequent privacy policy is part of the internet presence of:

Jutta Zollt – Translations and International Communication
Goedekestr. 10
D – 29221 Celle

I am delighted to welcome you to my website and I appreciate your interest in my services. The privacy of your data is very important to me. At this point, I would like to provide you with information on data protection at www.jutta-zollt.de.

Naturally, I comply with the legal provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, TMG) as well as with other data protection regulations.

The subject matter of data protection is personal data. According to Section 3(1) BDSG, personal data consists of details of the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, postal address, email address or telephone number and also, if applicable, usage data such as your IP address.

I would like to point out that data transmitted via the internet (e.g. via email communications) may be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of data against unauthorised access by third parties is not possible.

 

Web server

When you visit my website, log files are stored by the service provider in charge of the web server (“Provider”) in order to log access via IP (access log files). This data, which serves exclusively to ward off possible attacks by hackers to the system, is removed automatically after 7 days.

The following data is recorded in these log files and stored until being automatically deleted:

  • The operating system used
  • The referrer URL (the previously visited website that links to my website)
  • The IP address of the requesting computer (network)
  • The date and time of the server inquiry
  • The transmitted status code
  • The search terms that were entered into the search form
  • The requested document/page

 

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses “cookies”. These are text files which are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of how you use my website. As a rule, the cookie-generated data regarding your use of this website will be forwarded to a Google server in the USA and be stored there.

However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will first be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in any other state that is a contracting party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. 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 other services regarding website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

You can stop these cookies from being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, I wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie on your use of this website (including your IP address) from being sent to and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. This sets an opt-out cookie which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website.

For further information about the Google Analytics Terms of Service and the Google Privacy Policy, please refer to http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html respectively to https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/.

With regard to the discussion about the use of analysis tools using a complete IP address, I would like to point out that an “_anonymizeIp()” extention with reference to Google Analytics is included into  this website. Therefore, IP addresses are truncated before being processed in order to exclude any reference to personal data.

 

XING

My website uses the “XING share button”. When you access this website, a connection to the servers of XING AG (“XING”) is briefly established via your browser to activate the functions of the “XING share button” (in particular, the calculation, resp. the display of the counter value). XING does not store any personal data related to you in connection with viewing this website. In particular, XING does not save any IP addresses. In addition, no evaluations with respect to your usage behaviour in connection with the “XING share button” are carried out using cookies. Currently relevant information on data protection concerning the “XING share button” and further information can be consulted on the following website: https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection

 

LinkedIn

Plugins of the social network LinkedIn of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (subsequently referred to as “LinkedIn”) are integrated on my website. You can recognise the LinkedIn plugins on my website by the LinkedIn logo or by the “Recommend” button. When you visit my site, a direct connection between your browser and the LinkedIn server is established by means of this plugin. This enables LinkedIn to receive information that you have visited my site using your IP address. If you click on the LinkedIn “Recommend” button while you are logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the content of my pages to your LinkedIn profile. This allows LinkedIn to associate your visit to my site with your user account. As the provider of this website, I expressly point out that I receive no information on the content of the transmitted data or its use by LinkedIn. Details on the data collecting (purpose, scope, further processing, usage) as well as the rights and settings of the user can be found in the LinkedIn privacy policy. Please refer to: LinkedIn Privacy Policy

 

Cookies

Within the framework of my internet presence, I only use session cookies that collect a random combination of figures and letters in the form of session IDs.

Session cookies are automatically deleted from most browsers as soon as the browser is closed.

You can prevent cookies from being stored by selecting “do not accept cookies” or by setting your browser so as to be asked each time whether you agree with the placement of cookies. You may, at any time, delete any cookie set in your browser.

 

Objection to promotional emails

I hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator expressly reserves the right to take specific legal action in the event that unsolicited advertising material, such as spam email, is received.

 

Liability for content

The contents of this website have been compiled with the greatest care. However, I cannot assume any liability for the accuracy, completeness and topicality of the contents. As a service provider, I am obliged in accordance with Section 7(1) of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) to ensure that my own content on these pages complies with general legislation. Pursuant to Sections 8 to 10 of the TMG, I am not obliged, as a service provider, to monitor transmitted or stored external information or to look for indications of illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with the general laws remain unaffected hereby. Any liability in this respect, however, can only be assumed from the moment I obtain knowledge of the specific breach of law. Should any corresponding violation of the law come to my knowledge, I will remove this content immediately.

 

Links to the websites of other providers

My website may contain links to the websites of other providers. I would like to point out that this privacy policy exclusively applies to my website. I am not aware of the content and the scope of the data collected, processed and stored by the respective service providers when websites that are linked to mine are visited. I have no influence on and do not control whether other service providers abide by the currently applicable data protection provisions.

When using links to other websites, you are responsible for familiarising yourself with the data protection notices of the respective other service providers.

 

Scope, collection and use of personal data

Generally, it is not necessary for you to provide personal data to use my website. I only collect personal data, if you knowingly make it available to me – and only to the extent determined by yourself. This personal data is used, in particular, for the purpose of quote generation, consulting services and service fulfilment – and only if you have expressly provided your consent. Such approval is granted, for example, by sending me an enquiry.

 

Right to information, revocation, changes, corrections, and updates

Users have the right to obtain information free of charge about which of their personal data I store. In addition, users have the right to have inaccurate data corrected and their personal data blocked and/or deleted, in as far as no legal retention obligations exist.

 

Storage of data

I only store personal data as long as is necessary to fulfil your contract or a service that you have requested or to which you have given your consent, as far as no other legal obligations (retention requirements) apply.

 

Public procedures directory

According to Section 4g of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the Data Protection Official, resp. the responsible authority, must make the information referred to in Section 4e BDSG available in an appropriate form to any person upon request.

I would be pleased to meet this obligation when requested to do so.

If you wish to receive information about your personal data or to have it corrected or removed, or if you have further questions concerning the use of the personal data entrusted to me, or if you would like to receive a copy of my public procedures directory, please contact me at the following address:
