Data Protection

(1) Personal data are collected and used pursuant to the provisions of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) to the extent that this is necessary for the use of the services offered on the website, especially online forms, and the user has given consent thereto. Consent is logged. The user can access the content of the consent at any time and withdraw consent with effect for the future.

(2) Within the business, only the following data are stored: logfiles and IP addresses that do not permit any further conclusions regarding personal data.

(3) Within the scope provided by law, users can obtain information regarding the personal data concerning them that are stored, or view these data, at any time. You can contact the data protection officer of the city of Wiesbaden for this.

Data transfer and e-mail communication

(1) does not establish a protected connection between the user’s browser and the Web server.

(2) All entries made in forms are transferred using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) with 128-bit encryption.

(3) The e-mail boxes mentioned on establish access within the meaning of Sec. 3a of the Administrative Procedure Act for the State of Hesse (Hessisches Verwaltungsverfahrensgesetz) subject to the following overall conditions:

e-mails to the Audio Forest are transferred without security unless expressly stated otherwise. This means it is not impossible that data may be viewed or modified by unauthorized parties.

It cannot be guaranteed that encrypted e-mails sent to the Audio Forest can also be decrypted. The establishment of access therefore refers only to unencrypted e-mails.

None of the e-mail boxes are intended to receive electronic declarations with which statutory or contractually agreed time limits are to be set in motion or satisfied. There is no guarantee that the e-mail boxes are emptied regularly.

None of the e-mail boxes are intended to receive legally binding declarations with electronic signatures. Access is thus only established for e-mails without signatures.
