General information

This privacy policy is intended to inform users of this website about the nature, scope and purpose of personal data collection and usage activities.

The data protection officer is:

Leopoldstr. 21
80802 München

When contacting the data protection officer, please name the company to which your request relates. Please refrain from enclosing sensitive information such as a copy of your ID with your request.

We take the protection of your data very seriously and treat your personal data confidentially and in line with the legal regulations. As new technologies and this website’s continuous further development may result in changes to this privacy policy, we recommend that you re-read it at regular intervals.

You will find definitions of the terms used (e.g. ‘personal data’ or ‘processing’) in Art. 4 of the GDPR.

Access data

Based on our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR), we collect website access data and store it on the website server as ‘server log files’. The following data is therefore logged:

  • the web page visited
  • the time of access
  • the amount of data sent in bytes
  • the browser used
  • the operating system used
  • the IP address used

Our servers automatically store data for security reasons, e.g. to be able to clarify cases of misuse. If data has to be erased for the sake of proof, erasure of the same shall be excluded until the incident has been finally clarified.

Measuring coverage and cookies

This website uses cookies to measure coverage in pseudonymised form; cookies are transmitted either by our server or the third-party server to the user’s browser. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device. Your browser accesses these files. Using cookies makes this website more user-friendly and secure.

Common browsers offer users the option of rejecting cookies. Note: There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all of this website’s functions without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.

Purpose of personal data collection and processing

We collect and use your personal data to the extent permitted by law. Your data shall not be disclosed to third parties without your consent. Personal data is all information that serves to identify you as a person and that can be traced back to you, such as your name, email address and phone number.

You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, we store your website access data (without any references to you personally) to improve our online services. This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your internet provider. Data anonymisation means that conclusions cannot be drawn about you as a person.

Submitting online applications

You can apply to .riess online. If you do so, we gain access to your personal data. If we cannot consider your application at present, we shall store your data for potential future collaboration subject to your consent.

Registering for events

You can usually register via our website for the events that .riess organises or takes part in. The data provided in this regard shall only be stored in connection with these events.

Handling contact details

If you contact us using the contact options offered, your details shall be stored so they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. This data shall not be disclosed to third parties without your consent. You can revoke consent that you have already given at any time.

If you would like to revoke your consent, it is sufficient if you send us an informal notification to this effect by email to the following address: box@dont-want-spam.riess.de.

Links to other websites

The .riess website may contain links to other companies’ websites. .riess is neither responsible for the contents of such websites nor for these companies’ data protection precautions.

The user’s rights

As a user, you have the right to request free information about the personal data stored about you. You also have the right to have incorrect data rectified, processing of your personal data restricted and your personal data erased. You may also exercise your right to data portability if applicable. If you believe that your data has been processed unlawfully, you may file a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.

Erasure of data

Unless your request conflicts with a legal data retention obligation (e.g. data preservation), you have a right to have your data erased. Data that we store shall be erased if we no longer require the same for its intended purpose and there are no legal retention periods. If erasure cannot be carried out because the data is required for permissible legal purposes, data processing shall be restricted. In this case, the data shall be blocked and not processed for other purposes.

Right of objection

Users of this website may exercise their right of objection and object to the processing of their personal data at any time.
Please contact us on the following email address if you would like us to rectify, block, erase or provide you with information about the personal data stored about you, if you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, or if you would like to revoke your consent: box@dont-want-spam.riess.de.
