Visiting the website

When you access our website, the following information about you is automatically stored as server log files:

  • Your web browser
  • Your operating system
  • Your IP address and port
  • The accessed web page or components thereof
  • The website from which you visit us
  • The access time

This data is collected on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR and the purpose of the data collection is the operation, maintenance and protection of our systems. By default, the data accrues every time a connection is established with a web server on the Internet. If an error occurs while using our website or if we suspect an attack or misuse, this data is used to reproduce the scenario that occurred. Your IP address is additionally used to determine the number of visitors to our website on a monthly basis. All data collected in this way is stored for a period of six months and then deleted.

Cookies and analysis tool

Saving cookies is not necessary to visit our website. The FZI does not use any software on its website to analyse the usage behaviour of website visitors (e.g. Google Analytics)


To subscribe to our newsletter, we only need your email address – all other information is voluntary. We use the “double opt-in procedure” for registration to our newsletter. This means that after initially registering, you will receive an email from us with a confirmation link. Only after clicking this link are you fully registered for our newsletter. This procedure serves to ensure that no third party abuses your email address. By sending the registration form, you consent to the entered data being transmitted (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR) for the purpose of sending the activation link. By clicking on the activation link, you consent to the processing of your data (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR) to receive the email newsletter.

If the confirmation link is not activated within 30 days or if you unsubscribe from the newsletter, all data collected during registration will be deleted.

Contacting us

In case you want to contact us via e-mail we will process your e-mail address and the data provided in your e-mail in order to answer and process your inquiry. This is done on the basis of your consent. You can revoke this consent at any time.
If you contact one of our partners, for example by clicking on the partner’s social media button or by sending an e-mail to the partner, the responsibility for data processing does not lie with us but with the respective partner.
