We, the city of Bad Wimpfen (hereinafter "we/our(s)"), take the protection of your personal data very seriously and strictly adhere to all applicable laws and regulations on data protection, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).  

The following statements will give you an overview of how we protect your data and which data we process for which purpose.

 

Usage data

Each time you access our website and each time a file is retrieved, general data about this process is automatically stored in a log file. The data is stored exclusively for system-related and statistical purposes (on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR), as well as in exceptional cases for reporting criminal offences (on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (e) GDPR).

Specifically, the following data is stored each time content is accessed:

Personal data will only be processed by us if this is permitted by law or if you have given us your consent.

 

Contact

If you contact us, we will store your data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for any further correspondence.

 

Cookies

We use so-called cookies in some parts of our website. These are small text files that allow your computer to be identified as a technical unit during your visit to this website and make it easier for you to use our services, also during repeat visits.

As a rule, however, you have the option of setting your Internet browser so that you are notified about the use of cookies and can allow or block them, or delete existing cookies.

Please use the help function of your Internet browser to find out how to change these settings. We would like to point out that individual functions of our website may not function if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

Cookies do not allow a server to read private data from your computer or data stored by another server. They do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses.

The legal basis for the use of cookies is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR: We process the data in order to improve the functions of our website. The processing is therefore necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests.

 

Use of the "Google Analytics" service

On our website we use the web analysis service Google Analytics of Google Inc. This service uses cookies. These are text files which are stored on your computer and allow your user behaviour on our website to be analysed. The cookies generate information that is transmitted to a Google server. These servers are usually located in the USA; however, your IP address is truncated before transmission to the United States, according to the agreement for use within the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will your IP address be shortened after transmission to the USA. Google evaluates the information transmitted and provides further services for us website operators in this context. Your IP address determined is not merged with other Google services. By changing your browser settings, you can prevent cookies from being saved on your computer. If you do so, however, the functions and presentation of this website may be restricted. In addition, a browser plug-in prevents the collection and use of data generated by cookies. You can download it under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en 

Learn more about the privacy terms of Google and Google Analytics at: 

www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html orat https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/.

The legal basis for the use of the above analysis tool is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR: The data is processed to analyse usage behaviour and is therefore necessary for the protection of our legitimate interests.

You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent your information from being collected on future visits to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.

 

Use of Klick-Tipp

This website uses Klick-Tipp for sending newsletters. The provider is KLICK-TIPP LIMITED, 15 Cambridge Court, 210 Shepherd's Bush Road, London W6 7NJ, United Kingdom.

Klick-Tipp is a service that can be used to organize and analyse the sending of newsletters, among other things. The data you enter for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored on the Klick-Tipp servers.

 

Data analysis by Klick-Tipp

When we send newsletters with the help of Klick-Tipp, we can determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked.

Klick-Tipp also enables us to subdivide newsletter recipients according to different categories (so-called tagging). The newsletter recipients can be subdivided according to gender, personal preferences (e.g. vegetarian or non-vegetarian) or customer relationship (e.g. customer or potential customer). In this way, the newsletters can be better adapted to the respective target groups. Further information is available at: https://www.klick-tipp.com and https://www.klick-tipp.com/handbuch.

If you do not want a Klick-Tipp analysis, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.

 

Use of social plugins from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. We have therefore not embedded the social plugins directly on our website.

Our website only contains links to these social networks. The social plugins are only activated if you click on the corresponding links.

Please note that data will not be transmitted until you have activated a social plugin by clicking on the corresponding link. Visiting our pages alone does not trigger any data transmission.

If you activate the data transmission by clicking on the corresponding link, the following data transmission takes place:

 

Facebook

Plugins of the social network Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA) are integrated in our website. You can recognize the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo or the "Like" button on our page. An overview of the Facebook plugins can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

The plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook receives the information that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click the Facebook "Like" button while logged into your Facebook account, you can link the contents of our platform to your Facebook account.

This allows Facebook to associate visiting our website with your account. We would like to point out that, as the operator of this website, we are not aware of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Facebook. For more information, please see Facebook's privacy policy at http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.

If you do not want Facebook to associate visiting our website with your Facebook account, please log out of your Facebook account or do not activate the social plugins.

 

Twitter

We have embedded Twitter functions on our website. These functions are offered by Twitter Inc, 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

By using Twitter and the "Re-Tweet" function, the pages you visit are linked to your Twitter account and made known to other users. In this process, data is also transmitted to Twitter. We would like to point out that, as the operator of this website, we do not have any knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Twitter. For more information, please refer to Twitter's Privacy Policy at http://twitter.com/privacy.

You can change your Twitter privacy settings in your account settings at http://twitter.com/account/settings

 

Instagram

We have embedded Instagram functions on our website.

These functions are offered by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. Since 2012, Instagram LLC has been part of the Facebook Inc. group of companies, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA.

An overview of the Instagram plugins can be found here: http://blog.instagram.com/post/36222022872/introducing-instagram-badges.

When you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the "Instagram" button, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Instagram server. Instagram will then know that your browser has visited the appropriate page on our website, even if you do not have an Instagram account or are not logged in to Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transferred directly from your browser to Instagram's server in the USA and stored there. This allows Instagram to assign the visit to our website to your Instagram account.

We would like to point out that, as the operator of this website, we do not have any knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Instagram. For more information, see Instagram's privacy statement at https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.

If you do not want Instagram to be able to assign your visit to our website to your Instagram account, please log out of your Instagram account or do not activate the social plugins.

The legal basis for the use of the aforementioned social plugins is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. By activating the corresponding link, you give us your consent to process your data. In any case, the data processing is permitted by Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR; when the corresponding link is activated, data is processed for marketing purposes, which is in our legitimate interest.

 

Use of YouTube plugins

Our website also links to the website of the social network YouTube. We also operate a social media website here.

If you click on a link to YouTube, you will be redirected to the relevant external page on YouTube. If you are also logged in as a member of YouTube, the operator, YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066 USA, can assign your visit to our website to your respective user account. Please note that YouTube LLC belongs to the group of companies of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

If you do not want YouTube to collect and store information about your visit to our website, you must log out of your YouTube account before clicking on the link. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of your data by YouTube can be found in its privacy policy, which you can access here: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

The legal basis for the use of YouTube is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. By clicking on the link and simultaneously registering with YouTube, you give us your consent to process your data. In any case, the data processing is permitted by Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR; by activating the link with simultaneous registration in the respective social network, data is processed for marketing purposes, which is in our legitimate interest.

 

Use of Google Web Fonts and Google Maps

External fonts, so-called Google Web Fonts, are used on our website. We also use Google Maps to show you how to get to our company and to make it easier for you to plan your journey. Here, too, we rely on the services of Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. When you visit our website, your browser loads the required information from the Google server in the USA into your browser cache. This is necessary for a visually enhanced presentation of our texts by the browser, or to display the map on our website.

In this process, information is transmitted to the Google server about which of our web pages you have visited. Your IP address is also stored by Google. Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?hl=en-EN&csw=1. Further information on Google Maps can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de_en/help/terms_maps.html

You can find general information about Google's Privacy Policy at www.google.com/policies/privacy/

The legal basis for the use of the above tools is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR: The data is processed to improve the user-friendliness of our website and is therefore in our legitimate interest.

 

 

Duration of storage

We store your data as long as it is necessary for a final processing of your request. The statistical data collected using the "Google Analytics" tool is already anonymised during the survey and the results are stored for a maximum of 14 months. This does not include data that are subject to statutory retention periods or other legal requirements; these are stored for the duration of the respective retention period and are then routinely deleted.
