The Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training analyses this data purely for statistical purposes (web statistics) in order to improve its website. Web statistics data is captured anonymously (using a truncated IP address) and cannot be associated with a particular individual. This data is not combined with other data sources.
Personal data will only be stored if you actively provide it, e.g. when registering for an event or ordering information materials. The transmission of personal data is encrypted using a state-of-the-art method (Secure Sockets Layer – SSL).
Data that is captured by the BIBB in the course of surveys and empirical studies is treated as confidential and only used for scientific purposes. Where data is captured online, the entries are transmitted in encrypted form (Secure Sockets Layer – SSL). The data sets used for analyses are always anonymised so that no inferences can be made about individual respondents.
If you no longer agree to the transfer of your personal data, you may inform us of this at any time so that we can put a block on your data accordingly.
You have the right to demand what information is being stored about you at any time, as well as the origin of this data and the purpose for which it is being stored. On request, we will inform you in writing – in accordance with the applicable legislation – whether we are storing any personal data about you and, if so, of what this consists. If, in spite of our best efforts, it emerges that the stored information is incorrect, we will correct it at your request. Information about the stored data is available from the BIBB editorial team .
We employ security measures of a technical and organisational nature to protect your data against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, and destruction as well as against access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are subject to continuous improvement in line with technological advances.
The web statistics are generated using the "Piwik" tracking and analytics software.
