We would like to provide you with information on what personal data we collect when you visit our website www.blitzlab.de and/or use our online services and how we utilize your data.

When users access our website, data such as the computer’s IP address, internet browser used, date, time of day and duration spent on the page is logged for a period of seven days. In principal, this data is only analyzed when technical problems or attacks on our webserver arise.

We do not use statistics programs to analyze user behavior and do not use any “social media plugin” (such as the “Facebook Like button”) on our pages.

We in no way save or gather additional personal data through this website (such as names, addresses, telephone numbers or email addresses) unless you provide us with such information (for example, if you get in contact with us, utilize registration forms for events and workshops or fill in online applications) as well as in the context outlined as follows. Personal data you willingly provide (also in regard to required fields as part of your request) is treated confidentially and will only be processed to answer your request. If you use the contact form on our contact site, your e-mail address is verified to make sure you are not a spammer. Otherwise, no information is passed on to third parties without your consent and/or your being informed. The website is hosted on an internal server by Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf e.V., the research institute Blitzlab is located at. An external service provider for maintenance and support is not used.

 We use https (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure) on this website, which is the secure version of HTTP encrypting all communications between your browser and the website. Users should be aware that Internet data transfer (e.g., through email communication) can encounter security issues. Complete protection from access by third parties is impossible.
