Data protection
The Zentrum ÜBERLEBEN gGmbH, operator of these pages, takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.
We would like to provide you with information about our work on our website and refer you to the legal basis for processing in order to safeguard our legitimate interests according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal information. As far as on our sides personal data (for example name, address or E-Mail addresses) are raised, this takes place, as far as possible, always on voluntary basis. These data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent.
Please note that data transmission over the Internet (for example, when communicating via e-mail) may have security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.

Server Log Files
When visiting our website, the provider saves data in so-called server log files, which your Internet browser automatically transmits to the provider, in particular:

  • Date and time of server request
  • Description of the type of web browser used
  • used operating system
  • Referrer URL (page from which the file was requested)
  • Name of the requested file
  • transferred amount of data
  • Access status (file transfer, file not found, etc.)
  • IP address of the accessing device

This data is stored for a duration of 7 days. The IP address is anonymized immediately after processing and before its storage (only the first 2 octets of the IP address are stored). A merge of this data with other data sources will not be done. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively, if we become aware of specific indications for illegal use.

SSL encryption
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as the requests you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by changing the address line of the browser from “http: //” to “https: //” and the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Making Contact
If you contact us (for example, by contact form or e-mail), the information of the user will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent. We delete the requests, if they are no longer required. We check the necessity on an ongoing basis when the statutory retention periods apply.

By using this website, one or more cookies are stored on your computer. These are transmitted by your browser to the computer and stored on this. A cookie is a small file in which different information can be stored.
A cookie is primarily used to store the information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or after his or her visit to a website.
Temporary cookies, or “session cookies”, are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online service and closes their browser. In such a cookie, e.g. the contents of a shopping cart in an online shop, language settings or a login status are saved.
The term “permanent” or “persistent” refers to cookies that remain stored even after the browser has been closed. This allows, for example, e.g. save the login status of a user for the next website visit. Likewise, in such a cookie the interests of the users can be stored, which are used for range measurement or marketing purposes.
A “third-party cookie” refers to cookies that are offered by providers other than the person who runs the website (otherwise, if it is only their cookies, this is called “first-party cookies”).
Use of the offer is also possible without cookies. Users can disable the storage of cookies in their browser, restrict them to certain websites, or set their browser to notify them before a cookie is stored. You can delete cookies from your computer’s hard drive at any time using the privacy features of your browser. In this case, the features and usability of the offer could be limited.

When users leave comments on our site, they will be saved together with the time of their creation and the username and email address previously chosen by the site visitor. This is for our security, as we may be prosecuted for any illegal content on our website, even if created by users.

Use of YouTube in enhanced privacy mode
We rely on the inclusion of videos the provider YouTube (amongst others). This service is provided by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. The videos were embedded in the extended data protection mode. When you visit an Internet page, our website, with an embedded YouTube video, will connect to YouTube’s servers and display the embedded video. It will be communicated to the YouTube server which of our websites you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of YouTube, YouTube assigns this information to your personal user account. When you start to watch an embedded video, this information is also associated with your user account. You can prevent this association by signing out of your YouTube user account and deleting the corresponding cookies from YouTube before using our website.

Use social media buttons with Shariff
Some pages on our website use social media buttons of the providers listed below. The buttons can be recognized by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo of the social network.
Usually, these social media buttons cause every visitor to a page to be immediately tracked by these services with their IP address and their other activity logged on the Internet. This happens even if the user does not click on one of the buttons.
We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider through the use of Shariff. Shariff integrates these social network share buttons on our website only as graphics, which contain a link to the corresponding social network. By clicking on the corresponding graphic you will be redirected to the services of the respective network. The Shariff button does not establish direct contact between the social network and our visitors until the visitor actively clicks on the share button. Only then your data will be transmitted to the respective social network. If the Shariff button is not clicked, there will be no exchange between you and the social networks.

We integrate the following social networks on our website with “Shariff”:
