Data privacy policy

Data protection principles – Internet presence

The Internet presence of LfA Förderbank Bayern is subject to the European Union’s data protection standards. Processing of personal data is governed in particular by the provisions of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We attach great importance to the security of your personal data and to compliance with data privacy regulations. We store your personal data only if you have disclosed it to us of your own accord, for example actively by registering for a protected area of our Internet offering. If you send us an e-mail containing your sender information of your own accord, such an open means of transfer is not protected for technical reasons.

LfA Förderbank Bayern constantly works to improve its online offerings. We analyse user behaviour on our homepage so as to be able to provide the information that is precisely sought and asked for and to keep on improving our website. We use netmind technology for that. IP addresses are anonymised in analyses with netmind so that they can no longer be linked to a person.
You can object to analysis of your website visit at any time by clicking on this link. To block tracking for you, netmind has to install a cookie on your computer system. Cookies are small text files that can be read by a wide range of different software and whose information stored in them can be processed. Please make the necessary settings in your browser to enable installation of the cookie if you object to analysis of your visit.
We warrant now and in the future that the data collected by netmind on this website will only be used for market research purposes and optimising the website. The data is stored at Mindlab in Germany, where we ensure the highest-possible security against its being accessed by external parties. No data is transferred abroad. Because IP addresses are anonymised by netmind, it is no longer technically possible for the individual data records to be linked subsequently to a person.

In order to present our offerings in an appealing manner, we use the web fonts provided by Monotype GmbH ( or A connection to the servers of is established for that purpose when you use our offerings.

We use the following social media:

  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • YouTube (Google)
  • XING

If you call one of the following privacy policies, you leave our Internet presence and go to a website of the social medium in question. The information there has been created without our involvement and so we are not responsible for it. We do not warrant that it is up-to-date, correct or complete. Reference to a social medium does not constitute any approval by us in any form.

Please note that we have no influence on how and what data reaches the social medium. When you activate the privacy policy, the social medium in question is informed that you have called a page of the medium in the Internet. If you are already registered with the social medium, it can assign your visit to your account with the social medium. If you have not registered, the social medium might collect or store your IP address after you click on the privacy policy.

Some pages on our site also contain integrated videos from the provider YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. As soon as you call a page containing embedded videos, your IP address is normally sent to YouTube and cookies are set on your computer system. However, we have integrated our YouTube videos in privacy-enhanced mode (in this case, YouTube always contacts Google’s DoubleClick service; however, personal data is not analysed as part of that according to Google’s Privacy Policy). As a result, no information on visitors is stored by YouTube, unless they watch the video. When you click on the video, your IP address is sent to YouTube and YouTube learns that you have watched the video. If you are logged on to YouTube, this information is also assigned to your user account (you can prevent that by logging out of YouTube before you call the video).
We have no knowledge of whether and how your data may then be collected and used by YouTube, nor can we influence that. Please refer to YouTube’s Privacy Policy for more details. We also refer you to our general information in this data privacy statement for details of the general use of cookies and how to deactivate them.

We use personal data you provide us with voluntarily (for example by e-mail) only for a small number of offerings and services in our Internet presence – such as replying to specific inquiries and sending you information material if you so request. We also use this data for information purposes only if you have given us your prior consent or – where required by law – you have not objected. We process and use your particulars solely for the stated purposes and do not pass them on to third parties without your consent. Personal data you provide to LfA Förderbank Bayern is protected by suitable technical and organisational means and so against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, access by unauthorised persons or unauthorised disclosure to third parties. Our security measures are constantly checked and improved to reflect technological advances and organisational possibilities.

We process data to safeguard legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) f) GDPR). One example of that is to ensure IT security and IT operation at LfA. If you have given us your consent, we process the data pursuant to Article 6 (1) a) GDPR.

Personal data is erased as soon as the purpose for which it has been stored no longer applies. The storage duration is also governed by the statutory limitation periods.

You have the right of access to information (Article 15 GDPR), the right to rectification of data (Article 16 GDPR), the right to erasure of data (Article 17 GDPR), the right to restriction of processing (Article 18 GDPR), and the right to data portability (Article 20 GDPR). The restrictions defined in Sections 34 and 35 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) apply to the right of access to information, as well as to the right to erasure of the data.
