4.5. External links

The website contains links to other websites. Such links are clearly recognizable due to certain symbols and usually its internet address being fully displayed on purpose. With clicking on an external link a new browser window will be opened.

Each link is only checked and assessed tentatively before its integration. A continuous examination of its content is not intended nor feasible. However, we do not have any control about the collection and processing of your data nor do we know the scope of data collection, purpose of processing or retention periods. Furthermore we do not have any information about a possible deletion of your collected data by the service provider.

4.6. Social Media

By default we do not transmit any data to linked social networks (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube) when browsing through our website www.zwickau.de. Hence, users are not tracked by third parties. Contact to any social media platform is not established before the user deliberately clicks on the respective button in order to share content on such a network. By this the selected social network is opened within a new window/tab and the following data will be transmitted:

  • Address of the current website www.zwickau.de
  • Website title

Using the URL the social network independently determines further website contents; however, user data will not be transmitted. Identifying the user account lies within the authority of the social network and is not part of our website www.zwickau.de

4.7. OpenStreetMap

This website integrates maps provided by OpenStreetMap (https://www.openstreetmap.org), a service based on the Open Data Commons Open Database License (ODbL) offered by the OpenStreetMap Foundation (OSMF): https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Privacy_Policy).

To our knowledge OpenStreetMap solely uses personal data in order to display different map features and to temporarily save various user settings. These data particularly include IP addresses and location data of the user. However, it is not allowed to collect these data without the user’s consent (by default this is done via the settings of your mobile device).

Offering OpenStreetMap makes it easier to find the locations we inform about on our website.

4.8. Use of eTracker

Scope of processing personal data

This website uses technologies provided by the company etracker GmbH (http://www.etracker.com) in order to collect and store data to be used for optimization purposes. These data may be aggregated to a usage profile by means of an alias. For this purpose we may use cookies. Cookies are small text files which are saved locally in the cache of the user’s internet browser. Cookies facilitate the recognition of the internet browser. The following data is saved when a user visits single pages of our website:

  • two bytes of the IP address of the user’s requesting computer system;
  • the requested website;
  • the website which referred the user to our website (referrer);
  • any subpages the user requests starting from the requested website;
  • how long the user visits the website;
  • how often the user requests the website.

The software is only running on our website servers; personal user data is solely saved on these servers. The data will not be made available to third parties.

The software settings do not allow to store complete IP addresses but rather enable the masking of two bytes of it (e.g 192.168.xxx.xxx). By this means it is not possible to associate the requesting computer with the shortened IP address.

Legal basis for personal data processing

For the processing of personal data art. 6 (1e) GDPR in connection with clause 3 Data Protection Act of the Free State of Saxony (SächsDSDG) respectively art. 6 (1a) GDPR (position paper of the national data protection authorities: consent) shall apply as legal basis.

Purpose of data processing

We use eTracker in order to analyze and optimize the usage of our website. By means of the extracted statistics we are able to improve our service and make it more interesting for our users. Any collected data will be stored permanently and analyzed anonymously using an alias.

Duration of storage

Your data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for record-keeping purposes.

Possibility of objection and clearance

Cookies are saved on your computer and thereby transmitted to our website. Thus, the user has full control over the use of cookies. By changing the preferences of your internet browser you may disable or limit the cookie transmission. Cookies already saved on your computer can be deleted at any time. This may be performed automatically as well. Please consider that some website features may not be used to their full extent if you disable cookies for our website.

Additionally the following data are transmitted with your subscription:

  • date and time of registration;
  • which newsletter type and frequency is selected;
  • cancellation date;
  • reason for termination (optional);
  • mailing date of the verification e-mail.

During the registration process you are asked to agree with the processing of your data; reference is made to this privacy statement.

Your data will not be made available to third parties in the context of the data processing for the purpose of dispatching this newsletter. Your data is solely used to send the newsletter.

Legal basis for data processing

Art. 6 (1a) GDPR shall apply as legal basis for the processing of your data after registering for our newsletter and giving your consent.

Purpose of data processing

Your e-mail address is used in order to send the newsletter. Any further personal data collected during the registration process is used to prevent the misuse of services or the used e-mail address.

Duration of storage

Your data will be erased as soon as the purpose of their collection is achieved and these data are no longer necessary. Your e-mail address is saved as long as your newsletter subscription is active. Any further personal data collected during the registration process will be deleted within 7 days by default.

Possibility of objection and clearance

You may terminate the newsletter subscription at any time. Hence, you will find an appropriate link in every newsletter; you may also write an email to newsletterzwickaude or a message via the contact details provided in our disclaimer. Hereby your consent to save your personal data collected during the registration process is revoked.

4.10. Integration of YouTube videos

(1) We integrated YouTube Videos in our online services saved under http://www.YouTube.com and directly made available via our website. These videos are embedded in a so-called ‚advanced data protection mode‘ i.e. your user data will not be transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play a video the data referred to below in paragraph (2) will be transmitted. We do not have any influence on this data transmission.

(2) When visiting www.zwickau.de YouTube receives the information that you requested the appropriate subpage of our website. Thereby the data stated in clause 4 of this privacy statement will be transmitted. This takes place regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account with login or if there is no user account. If you are logged in with Google your data is directly matched with your account. If you do not want to match your profile with YouTube you have to log out out before pressing the button. YouTube saves your data as a usage profile and uses it for advertising purposes, market research and/or tailoring its website according to user preferences. This analysis is especially done (even for users not being logged in) in order to provide customized advertising and to inform other social network users about your activities on our website. You may exercise your right of revocation regarding this profile creation; however, you have to contact YouTube to do so.

(3) Please refer to the privacy policy of YouTube in order to get further information about purpose and scope of data collection and processing by YouTube. You will be provided with further information about your rights and optional settings in order to protect your privacy: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google processes your personal data within the USA as well and is subject to the EU US Privacy Shield, please see https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

4.11. Safety of data transfer

The data entered is encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer). Depending on your browser (settings and version) this is a 256 bit or 128 bit encryption for recent browser versions; older versions offer a lower encryption level.

If you open a secure site you will receive a public key by our server. Your browser checks this key automatically and recognized the website as www.zwickau.de. Thereupon your browser transfers a random number which is coded with our public key. Thus, only our server is able to decode the transmitted data and encode this session. This way a kind of ‚tunnel‘ is created between your browser and our server i.e. the transmission is basically protected against outside intrusion.

However, please keep in mind the following:

Your message via e-mail is not automatically encrypted. As information sent to us is not encrypted, unwarranted disclosure to third parties cannot be excluded.

If you wish an answer we assume that you agree to receive an answer via an unencrypted e-mail in case our answer, according to its content, does not require an encryption either.
