Your rights

You have the right to obtain, upon request, information about the personal data which are stored about you free of charge. You also have the right to demand that false data be corrected or deleted. You have the right to restrict the processing of your data, the right to object to processing, and the right to data portability.

Anonymous Data Collection

You can visit the webpages of the German National Library of Economics without telling us who you are. We only get to know the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you came to our website and which of our webpages you visit. This information will be used for statistical purposes. You as an individual customer remain anonymous.

Collection and Processing of Personal Data

If you call up pages and files on this website and are requested to input data about yourself, we will advert you that the transmission of these data over the internet is unsecured and can therefore be noticed or even falsified by unauthorised persons.

Utilisation and Circulation of Personal Data

The personal data collected on the webpages of the German National Library of Economics will only be used without your consent for the execution of contracts and in order to process your enquiries. Beyond this, your data will only be used with your prior consent for advertising and market research and the tailoring of electronic ZBW services to customer requirements. Equally, your data will only be used for tailoring individualised advertising if you have granted your consent. Your data will not be circulated to third parties. You can revoke your consent at any time, effective from the time of revocation.

Transfer and Processing of Data to Countries outside the European Economic Area

We do not transfer any of these data into states outside the European Union (so-called third countries).

External Links

In order to provide you with the best possible information, we offer links to third parties’ websites on our website. Whenever it is not obvious that these are external links we will provide an explicit notice. The German National Library of Economics cannot control the contents and design of third parties’ websites. Therefore, the guarantees given by this data protection statement do not apply to those websites.

Please note that the embedding of external content, such as videos from the video platform YouTube, can result in the use of trackers by other providers. You can find more information about this in the privacy policy of Google.

E-mails

If you send us an e-mail, we will use your e-mail address only for corresponding with you. After the end of correspondence, your e-mail address will be deleted. It will not be used for other purposes or transmitted to third parties. We also advise you that unauthorised access and falsification are possible if  e-mails are transmitted without encryption.
