Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of the page view). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data – free of charge and at any time. You also have a right to request rectification, blocking or erasure of this data. You can contact us at any time via the address given in the “Legal notice” with regard to this and other questions on the subject of data protection. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
You also have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data under certain circumstances. For details, please refer to the section “Right to restriction of processing” in the Data Protection Statement.
Third-party analytics and tools
When visiting our website, your surfing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This is done mainly using cookies and so-called analysis programs. Analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous – your surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. Detailed information about this can be found in the Data Protection Statement below.
You can object to this analysis.
We will inform you about the objection options in this data protection statement.
2. General notes and mandatory informationnen
The operators of these pages take protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with statutory data protection regulations and this data protection statement.
When you visit the website, various personal data is collected. Personal data is any data by which you can be personally identified. This data protection statement explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how this is done and for what purpose.
We would like to emphasise that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. e-mail communication) can have security flaws. Complete protection from access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the body responsible
The body responsible for data processing on this website is:
Andreas Hermes Akademie im Bildungswerk der Deutschen Landwirtschaft e.V.
Godesberger Allee 66
53175 Bonn – Bad Godesberg
Telephone: +49 228 91 929 – 0
The body responsible is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses etc.).
Withdrawing your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw at any time consent already given. For this purpose, a non-formal message by e-mail is sufficient. The legality of any data processing carried out until consent is withdrawn remains unaffected by this withdrawal.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection statement. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data in question unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or such processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objecting under Article 21 (1) GDPR).
If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (objecting under Art. 21 (2) GDPR).
Right to complain to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of breaches of the GDPR, data subjects shall have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, notably in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged breach. Right to appeal shall not prejudice other administrative or judicial remedies..
Right to data portability
You have the right to obtain data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
Information, blocking, erasure and rectification
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to rectification, blocking or erasure of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice.
Right to restrict processingitung
You have the right to request restrict processing of your personal data. For this purpose, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data happened/happens unlawfully, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
If you have lodged an objection under Art. 21 (1) GDPR, balancing of your and our interests must take place. Insofar as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or for asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or for protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest in relation to the European Union or a Member State.
Objecting to advertising e-mails
You may not use contact data published on the website for the purpose of sending advertising and information materials that have not been expressly requested. The website operators expressly reserve the right to take legal action against unsolicited transmission of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

Data collection on our website
Our website pages partly use so-called “cookies”. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies that we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically erased after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you erase them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser upon your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general and activate automatic erasure of cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are disabled, the functionality of the website may be limited.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you have requested (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored in line with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection statement.
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called “server log files”, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- browser type and version
- operating system used
- Referrer URL
- host name of the visitor’s computer
- time of the server request
- IP Adress
This data is not merged with other data sources.
Collection of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of the website – for this purpose, server log files must be collected.
Contact form for processing data on interested parties
You have the possibility to request further information about seminars or to book events using contact forms on our webpages. If you make use of this option, the information you provide in the enquiry form, including the contact data you enter there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent, unless this is necessary for execution of the contract, for example, to the cooperation partner commissioned with implementation.
Processing the data entered into the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal message by e-mail is sufficient. The legality of data processing operations carried out until withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
The data you enter into the contact form will remain with us until you request us to erase it, withdraw your consent to storing it, or until the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
Processing of data (client and contract data)
We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent necessary for establishing, shaping the content of or modifying our legal relationship. This takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which allows processing of data for execution of a contract or pre-contractual measures. The client data collected will be erased after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.
5. Analysis tools and advertising
This website does not use any analysis tools or advertising.
If you would like to receive the newsletter proposed on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receiving the newsletter. Further data is not collected or else only on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
Processing the data entered into the newsletter registration form takes place exclusively as a result of your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can withdraw your consent to storage of the data, the e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example, via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The legality of data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the withdrawal of consent.
The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be erased after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.
7. Plugins und Tools
Our website uses plugins from the video portal Vimeo. The provider is Vimeo Inc, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with a Vimeo plugin, a connection to Vimeo’s servers is established. This tells the Vimeo server which of our pages you have visited. In addition, Vimeo obtains your IP address. This also applies if you are not logged in to Vimeo or do not have an account with Vimeo. The information collected by Vimeo is transmitted to the Vimeo server in the USA.
If you are logged into your Vimeo account, you allow Vimeo to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.
The use of Vimeo serves to create an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
YouTube with enhanced privacy
Our website uses plugins from the YouTube website. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
We use YouTube in extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode prevents YouTube storing information about visitors to our website before they watch the video. Transfer of data to YouTube partners, on the other hand, is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. YouTube – regardless of whether you are watching a video – therefore creates a connection to the Google DoubleClick network.
As soon as you launch a YouTube video on our website, a connection to YouTube’s servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, YouTube may store various cookies on your end device after launching a video. These cookies allow YouTube to obtain information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud attempts. These cookies remain on your end device until you erase them.
If necessary, further data processing operations over which we have no control may be triggered after launching a YouTube video.
YouTube is used to enable an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
Google Web Fonts
This website uses so-called “web fonts” provided by Google to enable uniform display of fonts. Google Fonts are installed locally. A connection to Google servers does not take place.
This website uses Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The website provider has no influence over this data transmission.
Google Maps is used to enable an appealing presentation of our online offers and to make it easy to find the places we indicate on the website. This constitutes legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
Our social media presence
Data processing by social networks
We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. Further details on the social networks we use can be found below.
Social networks such as Facebook, Google+, etc. can generally analyse your user behaviour extensively when you visit these websites or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. “Like” buttons or advertising banners). Visiting our social media pages triggers numerous processing operations relevant to data protection. In detail:
If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media pages, the operator of the social media portal can match this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected under certain circumstances if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In such cases, this data collection takes place, for example, via cookies that are stored on your end device or by recording your IP address.
With the help of data collected in this way, operators of social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, interest-based advertising can be displayed to you on and away from the respective social media pages. If you have an account with the respective social network, interest-based advertising may be displayed on all devices on which you are, or were, logged in.
Our social media pages are designed to ensure the broadest possible presence on the Internet. This is legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by social networks may be based on different legal foundations, which must be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent in the sense of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
Person responsible and assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media pages (e.g. on Facebook), we are jointly responsible along with the operator of the social media platform for data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (information, rectification, erasure, restricting processing, data portability and lodging a complaint) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. against Facebook).
Please note that despite joint responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have complete influence over the data processing operations of social media portals. Our options are largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.
DData collected directly by us via social media pages will be erased from our systems as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies, you request us to erase it or you withdraw your consent to storing it. Stored cookies remain on your end device until you erase them. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular, retention periods – remain unaffected.
We have no influence over the duration for which your data is stored by the operators of social networks for their own purposes. For further details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly for information (or see their privacy policies below).
