Privacy Statement

Data protection is of high priority for the Technische Informationsbibliothek (TIB). As a general rule, the use of TIB’s services does not require the provision of any personal data. However, the processing of personal data may be required where a data subject wants to use special services via the TIB’s web pages. Where the processing of personal data is required and where there is no legal basis for such processing, we shall obtain the data subject’s consent.

The processing of personal data, such as for example the data subject’s name, address, email address, or telephone number shall always be carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the state and institution-specific data protection rules and regulations applicable to the TIB. This privacy statement serves to inform the public about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process, as well as of the rights data subjects are entitled to.

The terms used in this privacy statement are to be understood within the meaning of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Cookies

This website does not use cookies.

Use of web analysis tools

For the creation of the web statistics we use the open source software Matomo (formerly PIWIK) in anonymized form. This means that no personal data is processed. The use of cookies in the web analysis software Matomo is deactivated.

When saving the user IP address, the last two octets are not processed. The collection of the user ID is deactivated. For the analysis, the following data is collected in addition to the access to the site and the anonymized IP address: Date and time of the request, page title of the requested page, URL of the previously requested page (referrer URL), screen resolution of the client system, local time zone, URL of clicked and downloaded files, URL of clicked external domains, geolocation of the client (country, region, city), main language of the used browser, user agent of the used browser.

Matomo

The information generated with Matomo about the use of this website is processed and stored exclusively with the TIB.

In this case, an opt-out cookie is placed in the browser of the data subject, which prevents Matomo from storing usage data. When the cookies are deleted, the Matomo opt-out cookie is also deleted. Such objection (opt-out) must be redeclared when visiting the TIB website again

Collection of general data and information (logfiles)

Whenever a data subject calls the TIB web pages, these pages automatically collect information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to the TIB. This is:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of the accessing computer
  • IP address
  • Internet service provider of the accessing system
  • Time of the server request

As a general rule, this data is not attributable to a particular person. This data will not be merged with other data sources.

Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The TIB processes and stores the data subject’s personal data only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of such storage and in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and the country and institution-specific data protection regulations applicable to the TIB. Thereafter, the personal data will routinely be blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Rights of the data subject

You shall at any time be entitled to obtain information about the data stored in this library, its origin and recipient and about the purpose of such data processing, as well as to rectification or erasure or restriction of processing or – to the extent that such processing is based on your consent – a right of withdrawal, possibly a right of objection and the right to data portability. Complaints may be lodged with the above-mentioned supervisory authority. You can contact us at any time for further questions on the subject of personal data.
