WHAT WE USE YOUR DATA FOR
When visiting the website
When you access the website, access data is sent automatically and without your intervention from your browser to the server of our website. This is necessary to ensure a smooth connection of the website as well as a comfortable use of the website and to guarantee and optimise the security and stability of the system.
The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO, whereby our legitimate interest results from the need to present our website to you in a functional manner in accordance with your expectations.
Contact requests via the website to the KI Park
Insofar as we offer you the opportunity to contact us via a form provided on the website, it is necessary for you to provide your full name, title and e-mail address (contact data) in order to respond to your contact request. Any communication content will only be processed for the purpose of dealing with your request.
The legal basis for data processing when contacting us is a legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO; our legitimate interest lies in answering and processing your enquiry, for which the temporary storage of data is also necessary. If you contact us for the purpose of initiating a contract (e.g. questions about membership or application for membership), the legal basis is the implementation of pre-contractual measures according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO.
We regularly delete personal data that we collect from you in connection with a contact request as soon as your request has been finally processed. Further information on the storage period can be found below in the relevant section of this data protection notice.
If you expressly agree to this before sending the contact request, we will also store the data you provide beyond the contact request in order to be able to refer to previous conversations during the next contact. The legal basis for this is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, 7 DS-GVO, which we obtain separately from you. You have the right to revoke your consent. revoke at any time with effect for the future.
For a promotional address
On the website, we offer you the opportunity to enter your contact details so that we can contact you in the future with information about current events, services and promotions of the KI Park (e.g. in the form of a newsletter). Registration to receive advertising and information by e-mail is always carried out in a so-called double opt-in process. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This request is necessary so that no one can register with other people's e-mail addresses.
If you are contacted by e-mail (as a rule), the legal basis for data processing is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, 7 DS-GVO, which we obtain separately from you.
You have the right to withdraw consent you have given. revoke at any time with effect for the future (e.g. via an unsubscribe link provided in every promotional email).
Registrations to receive promotional communications (e.g. newsletters) are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time as well as the IP address.
The legal basis for the processing of access data for the purpose of logging is a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO, which results from the need to properly document the declarations made and actions taken and, if necessary, to be able to prove them.
In order to improve our advertising approach via e-mail and to be able to measure the success of the advertising communication, we collect personal data from you (access data, possibly also e-mail address) when you open, read and click on links contained in the e-mail. This analysis includes information that the newsletter was opened, when it was opened and which links were clicked. In addition, certain parameters on reading behaviour, the retrieval location (determinable by means of the IP address) and the access time are collected and transmitted to us. This information enables us to better understand the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or send different content according to the interests of our users.
The legal basis for data processing for the purpose of measuring success is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, 7 DS-GVO, which we obtain from you together with your consent to be addressed in advertising. You have the right to withdraw your consent. revoke at any time with effect for the future. NoteA separate revocation of consent to performance measurement is not possible for technical reasons.
Contact data that we collect from you for advertising purposes will be deleted as soon as you object to being contacted for advertising purposes by e-mail (e.g. via the unsubscribe link in a newsletter), provided that there are no further statutory retention obligations to the contrary. Further information on the storage period can be found below in the relevant section of this data protection notice.
If no explicit storage period is specified in this data protection information, your personal data will be deleted or the processing of this data will be restricted as soon as it is no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes. In addition, we store your personal data insofar as we are legally obliged to do so. Corresponding obligations to provide proof and to store data result, among other things, from the German Commercial Code, the German Fiscal Code and the German Money Laundering Act. As a rule, the storage periods are up to ten years.
RECIPIENTS OF PERSONAL DATA AND THIRD COUNTRY TRANSFERS
We work together with carefully selected service providers who support us in the operation of the website as well as in the dispatch of promotional addresses (e.g. via newsletters). We transmit your personal data to these service providers to the extent necessary for this purpose.
Insofar as the legal requirements for this are met, we have concluded so-called order processing contracts within the meaning of Art. 28 DSGVO with these service providers. These contracts oblige the service providers, among other things, to process the personal data strictly according to our instructions in compliance with the requirements of data protection law and to take all necessary measures to protect personal data.

We do not intend to use any personal data collected from you for any automated decision making process (including profiling).
RIGHT OF OBJECTION
You have the right to object to the processing of your data for reasons relating to your particular situation, insofar as we process it for our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO.
In the event of an objection, we will not further process your data unless this is necessary for overriding, compelling or legitimate reasons or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, in which case we must be able to demonstrate these reasons.
Insofar as we process your data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO for the purpose of direct advertising, you may object to this processing at any time without stating reasons; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with direct advertising.

Pursuant to Art. 18 DS-GVO, you may also request that the processing of your personal data be restricted if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data stored by us or if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DS-GVO. In this case, we must restrict the processing of your data for the duration of the review of your request. You can also request the restriction if the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data, or if you do not need your data stored with us but for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
