B) Information on the website

SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses an SSL-encrypted connection. TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

If you wish to send us sensitive data, we recommend that you send the message to us by conventional post or encrypt the e-mail or its content. Please get in touch with us (see contact address under A)).

Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

After the end of the connection, the data is anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to individual users.

Responsible persons
We are jointly responsible with Facebook for the operation of our Facebook fan page in accordance with Art. 26 GDPR.

This agreement between Facebook and the fan page operator (here: Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft im Landkreis Cham mbH) is automatically concluded when a fan page is created.

This includes, among other things, the information obligations under Art. 12 and 13 GDPR, the handling of data subject rights in accordance with Art. Art. 15 to 22 GDPR as well as data security and reporting obligations pursuant to Art. 32 to 34 GDPR.

We assume that the scope of joint responsibility extends to the processing of so-called “insights data”.

“Insights data” is personal data that is collected in connection with a visit to a page. Facebook provides the Wirtschaftsförderungsgesellschaft im Landkreis Cham mbH as the operator of the fan page with this “Insights data” in the form of statistics, e.g. on the usage behavior of page visitors. This would open up the possibility of constantly optimizing our Facebook presence and, for example, displaying personalized advertisements within Facebook.

Data protection officer
The details of the controller within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 7 GDPR and the contact details of our Data Protection Officer can be found under A) General information.
