III. Data protection

FIZ Frankfurt Innovation Center for Biotechnology (hereinafter referred to as "FIZ") welcomes your visit to our website and your interest in our company and our products and services. Protecting your personal information during processing throughout the business process is a matter of great concern to FIZ, and we want you to feel secure when visiting our web pages. With this privacy policy FIZ wants to inform you about the data collected on the website by the users. It also explains how this information is used and what FIZ is doing to protect users' personal information. Furthermore, all employees of FIZ have been obliged to data secrecy in accordance with § 5 BDSG before commencing their activity.


1. Personal data

Personal data are individual details about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as For example, your real name, address, phone number and date of birth. Information that is not directly related to your real identity, such as preferred websites or number of users of a website, is not personal information.


2. Collection and processing of personal data

Users of the FIZ website do not need to register in general. Instead, we only collect the necessary information to offer you our products in individual cases. For this purpose, our web servers temporarily save for the purpose of system security temporarily the connection data of the requesting computer, the websites you visit us, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of the browser and operating system used and, where appropriate, the website from which you visit us , If you provide information voluntarily, this data, such as name, e-mail address, postal address, telephone and fax numbers, stored with us (for example, when using the contact form).


3. Use and disclosure of personal data

Information about individual users collected on the FIZ website is used for internal corporate purposes only.

Only if you have previously given us your consent, or if you have not objected, as far as statutory provisions so stipulate, we also use this information to inform you about news, improvements or innovations of products that you may find interesting. FIZ does not sell, trade, or lend personal information collected online, and does not knowingly disclose personally identifiable information to third parties.


4. Data storage

a) No data evaluation

In connection with your access to our website, for the purpose of data security, data is temporarily stored in our server which may allow identification (in particular the IP address, the date, the time, the pages accessed and actions taken, the previously accessed website, the related browser and the operating system). An evaluation, except for statistical purposes in anonymous form, does not take place.

Details about log files

Every time a website is accessed, as already mentioned, access data is stored in a log file, the server log. The saved data set contains the following data: the time, the status, the request made by the browser to the server, the amount of data transferred and the website from which you came to the requested page (referrer), as well as

the product and version information of the browser used (user agent).

The IP address of the user will not be saved after the visit of the websites. Subject to any statutory retention requirements, users' IP addresses will be deleted or anonymized upon termination of use. In the case of anonymization, the IP addresses are changed in such a way that the details of personal or factual circumstances can no longer be assigned to a specific or identifiable natural person, or only with a disproportionate amount of time, cost and manpower.

The log data (logs) are anonymized, ie without assignment or references to the person of the user, used for statistical evaluations. It can therefore be determined on which days and at what times the offers of the websites have been accessed particularly often and how much data volume is generated on the websites. In addition, possible errors can be detected by the log files, e.g. broken links or program errors. The log files can thus be used in the further development of the websites. The page views and usages stored in the server log can not be associated with individual users. FIZ reserves the right to use data from log files if certain facts give rise to suspicion that users are using the websites in breach of law or in breach of contract.

b) Use of cookies
