This includes, for example, your correct name, address, telephone number or date of birth. Personal data also includes personal data, i.e. data without direct reference from which a person can be derived, such as the IP address.

Personal data includes such data that is generated in connection with the retrieval of and stored in so-called log files on the servers of DVV Media and the technical service providers.

Server log files are stored for security reasons (e.g. for the clarification of abuse or fraud) for a maximum of seven days and then deleted. Data whose further storage is required for evidentiary purposes is excluded from deletion until final clarification of the respective incident.server log files are stored for a maximum of seven days for security reasons (e.g. to clarify acts of abuse or fraud) and then deleted. Data whose further storage is necessary for evidentiary purposes are excluded from deletion until the final clarification of the respective incident.

During your visits to the pages of DVV Media, personal data is also processed automatically in anonymous form. This includes usage data such as the beginning and end of your visit, the pages you call up or the time you spend on the portal. A person-related utilization of these data does not take place.

§ 2 Safety measures


We take organizational and technical security measures in accordance with the state of the art to ensure that the regulations of the data protection laws are observed and thus to protect the data processed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons.

§ 3 Contacting us


When contacting us (via contact form or e-mail), the user's details are processed for the purpose of handling the contact request and its processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

§ 4 Use of Cookies


Cookies are small amounts of data that are transferred from the Internet to your computer together with the data actually requested. This data is stored there and kept ready for later retrieval. DVV Media uses the following types of cookies for

  1. Session cookies:
    These are cookies that are only stored on your computer for the duration of an Internet session. These cookies are deleted when the session is ended, i.e. when you leave the website or close the browser window.

  2. Login cookies:
    A cookie is also used for user authentication. Different cookies can be used for this purpose: By default, cookies are used which are only generated for the respective session. They store information about the user name, user rights and the validity of the session.

  3. Google-Re/Marketing Services:
    We use the marketing and remarketing services (hereinafter "Google Marketing Services") of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter "Google"). The legal basis for the processing is § 25 para.1 TDDDG.

    The Google Marketing Services allow us to display advertisements for and on our website in a more targeted manner in order to present users only with ads that potentially match their interests. If, for example, a user is shown ads for products he or she was interested in on other websites, this is referred to as "remarketing". For these purposes, when our website and other websites on which Google Marketing Services are active are called up, a code is executed directly by Google and so-called (re)marketing tags (invisible graphics or code, also referred to as "web beacons") are integrated into the website. With their help, an individual cookie, i.e. a small file, is stored on the user's device (comparable technologies can also be used instead of cookies). The cookies can be set by various domains, including,,, or This file records which websites the user has visited, which content he is interested in and which offers he has clicked on, as well as technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other information on the use of the online offer. The IP address of the user is also recorded, whereby we inform Google Analytics that the IP address is shortened within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and only in exceptional cases is transferred in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address is not merged with user data within other Google offerings. The aforementioned information may also be linked on the part of Google with such information from other sources. If the user subsequently visits other websites, he can be shown ads tailored to his interests.

    The user's data is processed pseudonymously within the framework of Google Marketing Services. This means that Google does not store and process the name or e-mail address of the user, for example, but processes the relevant data on a cookie basis within pseudonymous user profiles. This means that from Google's point of view, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie holder regardless of who this cookie holder is. This does not apply if a user has explicitly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymization. The data collected by Google Marketing Services about users is transmitted to Google and stored on Google servers in the USA.

    We may integrate third-party advertisements based on the Google Marketing Services Google Ad Manager. Google Ad Manager uses cookies that enable Google and its partner websites to serve ads based on users' visits to our website or other websites on the Internet.

    We may include third-party advertisements based on Google's "AdSense" marketing services. AdSense uses cookies to enable Google and its partner websites to serve ads based on users' visits to our website or other websites on the Internet.

    We may also use Google Tag Manager to integrate and manage Google's analytics and marketing services on our websites.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and only shortened there.

    Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
