Internet Privacy Statement
Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung e.V. (Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft) is very serious about protecting your personal data. We process personal data collected during the visit to our websites by observing the applicable data protection regulations. Your data will neither be published nor disclosed to third parties without authorization. Below, we will explain which data we will collect during your visit to our websites and how exactly they will be used:

1. Data collection and processing for access from the internet
When you visit our websites, our web servers will temporarily store each access in a log file. The following data are collected and stored until the time of automated deletion:
IP address of the accessing computer
Date and time of access
Name and URL of file accessed
Quantity of transferred data
Message whether file access was successful
Identity data of the browser and operating system used
Website from which access was initiated
Name of your internet access provider
These data are processed for the purpose of granting users access to the website (connection), for system security, the technical administration of the net infrastructure as well as the optimization of the internet offer. The IP address is only evaluated in the case of attacks on the net infrastructure of Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.
Personal user profiles are not created. The German Telemedia Act (TMG) permits the use of user profiles under a pseudonym according to § 15 para. 3 TMG, provided that the user does not object. Should we make use of this option in our internet offer, we will inform you of your right to object where applicable.
Beyond the above mentioned cases, personal data are not processed, unless you expressly consent to any further processing.

2. Use and disclosure of personal data
Your personal data will only be used for the stated purposes and to the extent required for these purposes.
Your personal data will only be disclosed to public institutions and authorities within the scope of compulsory national legal provisions or if the disclosure is required in the case of attacks on our net infrastructure for legal action or criminal prosecution. Your data will not be disclosed to third parties for any other purposes.

3. Consent to further use
The use of certain offers on our website, such as newsletters or forums, requires prior registration and further processing of personal data, for instance a longer-term storing of email addresses, user IDs and passwords. Such data will only be used if you have sent these to us and given your prior consent.

4. Newsletter and press distribution list
In order to register for a newsletter service of Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, we will require at least your email address to which the newsletter should be sent. Any further data are optional and will be used in order to contact you personally and resolve any queries on the email address. For deliveries by regular mail, we will require your address data. For press distribution lists, you are required to name the press organization you work for so that we know that a press organization is actually supplied.

For the newsletter distribution, we normally use the double opt-in procedure. This means that we will only send the newsletter to you once you state your email address and confirm the link we will send you by email. This is to ensure that only you yourself can register for the newsletter service as a user of the stated email address. You must confirm the link promptly after we send you the email; otherwise your registration and email address will be deleted from our database. Until you confirm the link, our newsletter service will not accept any further registrations under this email address.

You may unsubscribe from a newsletter you registered for at any time. To unsubscribe, you may either send us an email or click on the corresponding link at the end of the newsletter.
