Purposes And Legal Bases Of The Processing

In accordance with Art. 2 Para. 6 BayHSchG, Art. 4 Para. 1 S. 1 and 2 BayEGovG, we offer our services and administrative services as well as information for the public about our activities on our websites.

Our social media appearances are part of our public relations work. It is our endeavour to inform target groups and to exchange information with them, Art. 2 para. 6 BayHSchG . We enable you to make rapid electronic contact and direct communication via the media of your choice, § 5 Para. 1 No. 2 TMG.

Contents, contributions and inquiries, which violate the rights of third parties or which constitute a criminal offence or administrative offences, which do not comply with legal or contractual duties of conduct, we disclose by transmission to the responsible authority or the social media service and blocking or deleting these.

We use cookies, log files, statistics of the social media providers and the web analysis tool Google Analytics to compile business statistics, to carry out organisational investigations, to check or maintain our web service and to guarantee network and information security in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 BayDSG, § 13 Para. 7 TMG, Art. 11 Para. 1 BayEGovG. Insofar as the processing purpose is not impaired, we anonymise or pseudonymise personal data.

Data Categories

Administration and editing

For administration and editorial purposes, function identifiers and personal identifiers with access protection mechanisms are created and changes made with these identifiers are logged.

– Name of the requested file

– Page from which the file was requested

– Access status (e.g. file transferred, file not found)

The basic functions of the website can be used without cookies. Cookies are only used to analyse user behaviour (“Analytical Cookie”).


If you send us a request or opinion by e-mail, post, telephone, fax or social media, the information provided will be processed for the purpose of processing the request as well as for possible follow-up questions and for the exchange of opinions. We always use the same communication channel for this purpose, provided you do not wish to change.

Recipients Or Categories Of Recipients Of Personal Data

If you use our social media channels and pages, their providers also process your personal data.

Our IT service providers can also be recipients of your personal data within the framework of the contracts concluded by us for order processing. However, in order to guarantee the security of our data processing systems, we do not disclose our service providers.

Transfer Of Personal Data To A Third Country Or International Organisations

All of our social media providers are visibily for everyone certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield, providing a legally appropriate level of protection for personal information:

Youtube (Youtube LLC) and Google+ under Google LLC


An exception is Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025 USA. This protection does not exist there.

Google Analytics

If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC (“Google”). The use includes the “Universal Analytics” mode of operation. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across several devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus to analyse the activities of a user across all devices.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookies about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if you activate IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it will be shortened. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include IP anonymisation in order to guarantee anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. You can find more information on terms of use and data protection at or

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and Internet usage to the website operator.

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S.1 lit. a DSGVO.

Recipients / Categories Of Recipients
