Principles of data security

Dear visitors to our website,
the internet presentation of LfA Förderbank Bayern is subject to strict regulations concerning data security, which are an integral part of our customer service to you and serve to assure the security of your data. Your personal data, such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address are not recorded during a visit by you on our homepage. LfA Förderbank Bayern only comes into the possession of such information, when you send us an e-mail message that contains your personal data. May we ask you to take into consideration that, for technical reasons, such a public transmission cannot be protected by us.

To assure systems security, it is however necessary to register certain technical data for a limited period of time. Such data includes the IP address or the domain name of the requesting server, the access date, the file name and URL of the client, the HTTP answering code, as well as the number of transferred bytes during a transmission session. LfA Förderbank Bayern also reserves the right to store so-called „cookies“ on your PC, which deposit data for the technical control of access sessions in the memory of your browser. Such data contains no personal information and is deleted at the latest when your browser is closed. This information helps us to fine-tune our internet offer to the needs of our visitors, presently and in the future. Under no circumstances is an association between these technical data and a certain person possible. The individual user remains totally anonymous.

Personal information, which is provided to us voluntarily (for instance by e-mail), is used exclusively by us for transmitting offers and for providing services with regard to our internet presentation, such as answering concrete questions or sending requested informational material. Such information will only be used for informational purposes when you have given us your advance consent, or, in so far as permitted by legal regulations, when no objection to the use of this data has been raised by you. Your information is processed and used exclusively for the indicated purposes, and it will not be provided to any third-party without your advance consent. Personal information, which is provided by you to LfA Förderbank Bayern, is protected by appropriate technical and organisational measures against coincidental or premeditated manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorised persons, as well as unauthorised disclosure to third parties. Our security measures are continuously monitored and improved, in correlation with technological developments and organisational possibilities.

This data security declaration and the described policies are exclusively valid for the internet offer of LfA Förderbank Bayern, and are continuously adapted to current requirements. No responsibility can be assumed for the content and data security of websites, to which reference may be made by means of links. LfA Förderbank Bayern commits itself to the maintenance of the above measures, as described.

If you have any questions regarding data security and the processing of your personal information, you may contact the data security manager of the LfA Förderbank Bayern - by e-mail datenschutzbeauftragter@lfa.de or by phone +49 / 89 / 21 24 - 24 41.
