The reew.berlin website draws on the services of Biohost (www.biohost.de) to analyse usage data. No other use is made of the data, and the data are not passed on to third parties. The following information is stored for each page you view and each file you download:
- Technical details of the browser used
- Anonymous IP address
- Date and time
- Page opened/name of the file downloaded
- Quantity of data transferred
- Notification of whether viewing or download was successful
Temporary session cookies are used each time you view an individual page, to make navigation easier. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in your browser cache. Session cookies do not include any personal data and expire at the end of each session, or after the completion of a user survey, which is conducted as a rule every two years.
We do not use methods such as Java applets or ActiveX controls that make it possible to track your browsing behaviour.
Data is processed based on Art. 6 paragraph 1 f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) with the legitimate interest of analysing usage to improve the company’s website. Users have the option of objecting to use of their data to analyse their behaviour. You can prevent the collection of your user data via the link below.
You may at any time lodge an objection to the storage of your anonymously collected visitor data, so that these will no longer be collected in future. Please click on the link at the bottom of this page to be excluded from counting.
Notes regarding objection
For this purpose, a cookie is stored on the device, preventing user data from being collected when the user visits this website. In order for the objection to take effect, the cookie must be stored on every device used. As the cookie is stored in specific browsers (internet programs), the cookie must be stored in every browser if several browsers are used on one device (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox). Please also note that, if you delete all cookies, the objection cookie will also be deleted and will need to be stored again.
When you use the contact form, we process your title, first and last names, email address and, where appropriate, your postal address. The data is processed based on Art. 6 paragraph 1 b) of the EU GDPR for the purpose of receiving the query formulated in the contact form.
Regular data erasure deadlines
Personal data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the performance of a contract (e.g. employment, subsidy, rental, purchase or service contracts), if there is no separate consent on the part of the persons concerned, or if legally stipulated storage obligations and periods do not require longer data storage.
Planned transfers of data to third countries
As a general principle, data will not be transferred to third countries. Exceptions are possible under exceptional legal circumstances. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if you have given your express consent, if processing is necessary to process a contract with you (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO), if processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation, and if processing is necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests. If we commission third parties with the processing of data based on a so-called "contract processing agreement", this is done based on Art. 28 DSGVO.
The rights of the data subject
You are entitled to enquire about your personal data and its processing, to have the data corrected if necessary, and to request restriction of processing or the erasure of the data. The data will then be erased. If you have any questions or complaints about this website, please contact the reew.berlin team (see contact information provided below). You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible data protection supervisory authority. The responsible authority in this case is the German Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI).
