We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH. The use of the Internet pages of the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e‑mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation, and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller, the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be vulnerable to security risks, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
- personal data: Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”).

- Pseudonymization: Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
- Controller: The controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
4. Collection of general data and information
The website of the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH collects a series of general data and information whenever a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) to optimize the content of our website and any advertising for it, (3) to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so as to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
5. Registration on our website (member login)
The data subject has the possibility to register on the website of the controller by providing personal data and after having been accepted into the network. Which personal data is transmitted to the data controller in this context results from the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for its own purposes. The controller may arrange for the data to be transferred to one or more processors, who will also use the personal data exclusively for an internal use attributable to the controller.
By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the data subject, the date as well as the time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that only in this way can the misuse of our services be prevented and, if necessary, this data makes it possible to clarify committed crimes. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for the protection of the data controller. As a matter of principle, this data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.
The registration of the data subject by voluntarily providing personal data serves the purpose of the controller to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to modify the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from the data stock of the controller.
The controller shall provide any data subject at any time, upon request, with information about what personal data is stored about the data subject. Furthermore, the controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory retention obligations. The entire staff of the controller shall be available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

A person who registers with our newsletter via his/her email address, will receive a confirmation email according to the Double-Opt-In procedure based on statutory provisions. This confirmation email serves the control whether the holder of the indicated email address authorized the newsletter’s receipt.
- Double-Opt-In andProtocolling: The newsletter registration takes place as a so-called Double-Opt-In procedure. I.e., you receive an email once you registered, in order to confirm your registration. This confirmation is required to validate the indicated email address. Newsletter registrations are protocolled to provide proof of the registration process according to statutory provisions. This process includes the storage of registration and confirmation time as well as the respective IP-address.
Upon registration, we also save the IP-address assigned by the Internet-Service-Provider (ISP) concerning the person’s used computer system at that time as well as date and time of the registration. Processing these data is required to be able to understand (possible) abuse of the email address at a later stage and serves the controller’s legal protection.
- Using Plug-ins „Campaign in Craft CMS”: The newsletter is distributed via “Campaign”, a Plug-in for Craft CMS of the Austrian provider PutYourLightsOn. The email addresses of our newsletter recipients, and their further described data, are stored on European servers. Campaign and Craft CMS process these information to distribute and assess the newsletter on our behalf.
- Registration Data: It is only required to indicate your email address to register with the newsletter. We optionally request your salutation, title, name and surname. These data only serve the newsletter’s personalization.
- Statistical Assessment and Analysis:
The statistical assessment includes the determination whether the newsletter has been opened, when it has been opened and which links have been clicked. These information can be associated with the respective newsletter recipient. However, we do not aspire to observe individual users. Instead, we use these assessments to identify the users’ reading habits as well as to tailor contents respectively or to distribute different contents concerning our users’ interests.
- Online View and Data Management: Our newsletters contain a link to view the newsletter online (e.g., in case of display difficulties within the email program). In addition, newsletter recipients can amend their email addresses, among other data, subsequently.
- Cancellation/Withdrawal: You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time, i.e., to withdraw from your agreement. Simultaneously, your agreement to the newsletter’s distribution via Campaign and its statistical analysis expires. A separate withdrawal from the newsletter’s distribution via Campaign or from the statistical assessment is unfortunately not possible. You find a link at the bottom of each newsletter to unsubscribe.
- Statutory Provisions of GDPR: In compliance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation, being effective as of May 25, 2018, we inform you that the acceptance of the email address’ distribution takes place on the basis of Art. 6 sect 1 lit. a, 7 GDPR as well as § 7 sect. 2 no. 2 and sect. 3 UWG (Act Against Unfair Competition). Using Craft CMS Plug-in Campaign, statistical assessments and analysis as well as protocols of registration processes are based on our eligible interest according to Art. 6 sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our interest concerns the application of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system, which also serves our business interests and complies with the user’s expectation.
We would like to point your attention to your right to object the future processing of your personal data according to statutory provisions Art. 21 GDPR at any time. The objection can particularly be against the processing for the purpose of direct advertising.

If the personal data has been made public by the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH and our company is responsible for it pursuant to Art. 17 Para. 1 DS-GVO, Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH shall implement reasonable measures, including technical measures, to compensate other data controllers for processing the personal data published, taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation, in order to inform the data subject that he or she has requested from those other data controllers to erase all links to the personal data or copies or replications of the personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH will arrange the necessary in individual cases.

If the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data processed for such marketing. This also applies to the profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes. In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the Data Protection Regulation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest. In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact any employee of the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH.

- Automated decisions in individual cases, including profiling: Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, unless the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is permitted by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and that law contains suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is made with the data subject’s explicit consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) it is made with the data subject’s explicit consent, the Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the data subject’s involvement on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decisions, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
- Right to withdraw consent under data protection law: Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
10. Legal basis of processing
Article 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
11. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
12. Duration for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiry of the period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfillment or initiation of the contract.
13. Legal or contractual requirements to provide the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact us. Industrielle Biotechnologie Bayern Netzwerk GmbH will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or by contract, or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
14. Existence of automated decision making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
