Data Protection

Scope and updates

This data protection policy applies to the use of the website

Steinbeis takes the protection of your personal information extremely seriously and adheres to prevailing data protection laws, including the regulations of the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, “TMG”) and Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, “BDSG”).

Data that we gather or that you submit to us is only acquired, used, processed, stored, or, if necessary, shared with third parties (and in such instances, only if required by law or if stipulated by a contractual obligation) according to prevailing data protection legislation (TMG/BDSG).

If our website needs to be updated or has to be adapted to new technology, it may become necessary to make amendments to this data protection policy. Steinbeis therefore reserves the right to amend its data protection policy whenever necessary in accordance with latest developments.

Using the contact form to get in touch with Steinbeis

You can use the contact form to send us a query. To respond to your query and get back to you, we require your name and email address. You may also voluntarily submit further personal information if you want to. Your data is forwarded to us by email via our provider and unless we are legally obligated to retain your information, it will be deleted immediately after responding to you. Your information will not be used for any other purposes or shared with third parties.

SSL encryption

Our website uses SSL encryption to transmit any confidential and personal user information. Please ensure that SSL encryption is enabled for these functions required by our website. It is easy to see if encryption is enabled: The address bar in your browser switches from http:// to . Data encrypted using SSL cannot be accessed by third parties. Please do not send us confidential information unless SSL encryption is activated. If in doubt or if you still need to know more about this issue, please contact us.

Use of Vimeo plugins

This website uses Vimeo plugins to integrate and share video content. This content is provided by Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.

If you access a website page featuring a Vimeo plugin – for example if you visit our media library – a connection will be established to the servers of Vimeo. This will result in the Vimeo server being informed which of our pages you have accessed. Vimeo will also be given your IP address. This will even be the case if you are not logged in with Vimeo or do not have an account with Vimeo. The information gathered by Vimeo will be transferred to the Vimeo server in the United States.

If you are logged into a Vimeo account, you allow Vimeo to match your surfing activity to your personal profile. You can prevent this happening by logging out of your Vimeo account.

Use of YouTube plugins

This website contains at least one plugin of YouTube, a company belonging to Google Inc., based in San Bruno/California, USA.

If you access one of our website pages featuring a YouTube plugin, an automatic connection will be established to the servers of YouTube. This will result in the YouTube server being informed which of our pages you have accessed.

If you also have a YouTube account and are logged in, you will allow YouTube to match your surfing activity to your personal profile. You can prevent this possibility of your profile being linked to activity by logging out of your account beforehand.
