Data Protection Policy
The person responsible for data processing is:
Dr. Balasubramarian Ramani
Thank you for your interest in my website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. In the following we will inform you in detail about the handling of your data.
1. Access data and hosting
You can visit my website without giving any personal information. Each time a website is called up, the web server only automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, date and time of the call, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call. These access data are evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer. This serves to safeguard our predominantly legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 § 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR. All access data will be deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit to the website.
The services for hosting and displaying the website are partially provided by our service providers as part of processing on our behalf. Unless otherwise stated in this data protection declaration, all access data and all data collected in the forms provided on this website are processed on your servers. If you have any questions about our service providers and the basis of our cooperation with them, please use the contact option described in this data protection declaration. Our service providers are based in the USA. There is no adequacy decision by the European Commission for the USA. Our cooperation with them is based on standard data protection clauses of the European Commission.
Content Delivery Network
For the purpose of a shorter loading time, we use a so-called content delivery network (“CDN”) for some offers. With this service, content, e.g. large media files, is delivered via regionally distributed servers of external CDN service providers. Therefore, access data is processed on the servers of the service providers. Our service providers work for us as part of order processing. If you have any questions about our service providers and the basis of our cooperation with you, please use the contact option described in this data protection declaration. Our service providers are based in the USA. There is no adequacy decision by the European Commission for the USA. Our cooperation with them is based on standard data protection clauses of the European Commission.
2. Data processing for establishing contact and customer communication
We collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us when you contact us (e.g. using the contact form or email). Mandatory fields are marked as such, because in these cases we need the data to process your contact and you cannot send the contact without specifying it. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you provide to process your inquiries in accordance with Art. 6 § 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR.
After your customer inquiry has been fully processed, your data will be restricted for further processing and will be deleted after expiry of the retention periods under tax and commercial law in accordance with Art. 6 § 1 S. 1 lit. b GDPR or we reserve the right to use data that goes beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we will inform you in this declaration.
