3. Data protection

The district of Heinsberg takes the protection of personal data seriously. We want you to know when we store which data and how we use it.

Personal Information

Personal data is information that can be used to determine your identity. This includes information such as your name, address, postal address, telephone number. Information that is not directly associated with your real identity (such as favorite websites or number of users of a site) is not included.

You can use our online offer without disclosing your identity. When you submit an application or request using a form, you may be asked for your name and other personal information. It is your free decision whether you use these possibilities. Please note that this information may be accessed, falsified or deleted by unauthorised persons during transport. It is therefore always possible to send us confidential information by letter.

In connection with your access, data is stored on our servers for backup purposes, which may allow identification (for example IP address, date, time and pages viewed). No personal utilization takes place. We reserve the right to statistically evaluate anonymous data records.

Disclosure of personal information to third parties

We use your personal information only within the district administration and related offices and authorities. We will not pass them on to third parties without your express consent. Insofar as we are legally or by court order obliged to do so, we will transfer your data to bodies entitled to receive information.

Underage persons

Persons under the age of 18 should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request personal data from minors, do not collect it and do not pass it on to third parties.

Links to other websites

With the judgement of 12 May 1998, the Hamburg Regional Court ruled that the inclusion of a link may lead to co-responsibility for the content of the linked page. According to the Regional Court, this can only be prevented by expressly distancing oneself from these contents.

The Heinsberg district has placed links to other Internet sites on its pages. The following applies to all these links: The Heinsberg district expressly declares that it has no influence whatsoever on the design and content of the linked pages. Therefore he dissociates himself hereby expressly from all contents of all linked sides on his homepage and does not adopt these contents.

This declaration applies to all links displayed on the homepage of the Heinsberg district and to all contents of the pages to which the banners and links registered by the Heinsberg district lead.

Electronic communication

When communicating via e-mail, information during transport can be read, falsified or deleted by unauthorized persons. For this reason, confidential data should be sent by letter. Communication via e-mail is at your own risk.

4. Liability

As far as possible the district Heinsberg excludes its liability, in particular it is limited to intent and gross negligence.

5. Severability clause
