It is important to us to protect your privacy when using our websites,
so we would like to ask you to please note the following information:
Anonymous Data Collection
As a matter of principle, you can visit the websites of the German
National Library of Economics without informing us who you are.
We only get to know the name of your internet service provider,
the website from which you came to our website and which of our
websites you visit. This information will be evaluated for statistical
purposes. You as an individual user remain anonymous.
Collection and Processing of Personal Data
If there is an option to enter personal or business data (e-mail
addresses, names, addresses) on the website, the user will disclose
such information on a voluntary basis only. Personal data are only
collected if you submit them voluntarily, e.g. in order to execute
a contract or a survey.
Utilisation and Circulation of Personal Data
The personal data collected through the websites of the German
National Library of Economics will only be used without your consent
for the execution of contracts and in order to process your enquiries.
If you have previously provided your consent, your data shall also
be used for the purposes of providing information on our products
and services, conducting market research, and tailoring our electronic
services to meet your requirements. Equally, your data shall only
be used for tailoring information to your personal requirements
if you have granted your consent. Your data will not be circulated
to third parties. You can of course revoke your consent at any
time, effective from the time of revocation.
Transfer and Processing of Data to Countries
outside the European Economic Area
We do not transfer any of these data into states outside the EEA. This excludes personal data you provide in the webforms sent to EconDesk. This data transfer is performed on the basis of the "standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to third countries" of the European Union. Please be aware that the level of data protection in third countries might differ from German and EU standards.
In order to provide better functionality we use so-called "cookies". These "cookies" allow files to be saved on your computer when you access our website. You can disallow the saving of cookies on your PC by changing the settings of your internet browser. However, this will reduce the range of services available to you.
In order to provide you with optimized information, you will find
links to third parties’ websites on our website. The German
National Library of Economics cannot control the contents and
design of these third parties’ websites. Therefore, the
guarantees given by this data protection statement do of course
not apply to these websites.
Usage of Facebook Social Plug-ins
Our internet presence uses social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network Facebook.com which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
These plugins can be recognised by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs-up” sign) or are marked as “Facebook social plugin”. As soon as a page on our internet presence is accessed which contains such a plugin, your browser will establish a direct connection with the servers of Facebook. The content of the plugin will be communicated directly from Facebook to your browser and embedded in the website. Facebook obtains the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website through the embedding of the plugin. If you are at that time logged into Facebook, Facebook will be able to allocate your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, (e.g. use the “like” button or leave a comment) then this information will be transmitted by your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. For further information as well as your rights in this respect and settings options available to protect your privacy, please contact Facebook Inc., or refer to Facebook’s data protection information. If you do not wish Facebook to collect data about you through our internet presence, you have to log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
