Data pri­va­cy

We app­re­cia­te your visit to our web­site and would like to fami­lia­ri­ze you with our online data pri­va­cy policy.

As a mat­ter of prin­ci­ple, the pro­tec­tion of your pri­va­cy is of the utmost importance to the ZKRD. Com­ply­ing with the legal data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons is the­r­e­fo­re a mat­ter of cour­se. In addi­ti­on, it is important to us that you always know when and which data is stored by us and how it is used.

With the excep­ti­on of the cont­act form, the use of our public web­site is pos­si­ble wit­hout having to dis­c­lo­se your per­so­nal data. To pro­tect the secu­ri­ty of your data during trans­mis­si­on, we use sta­te-of-the-art encryp­ti­on methods. We would like to point out that the­re may be secu­ri­ty gaps when sen­ding infor­ma­ti­on across the inter­net (e.g. when com­mu­ni­ca­ting by e‑mail). It is not pos­si­ble to ful­ly pro­tect the data against third-par­ty access.


To impro­ve the acces­si­bi­li­ty and effec­ti­ve­ness of our web­site, we coll­ect and eva­lua­te various sets of infor­ma­ti­on after your con­sent. For this pur­po­se, we send small files (coo­kies) – text files – that are stored on your com­pu­ter or device. Two types of coo­kies are used: tem­po­ra­ry coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted when you clo­se your brow­ser (ses­si­on coo­kies), while per­ma­nent coo­kies have an expi­ra­ti­on date in the future.

This infor­ma­ti­on, which is used for inter­nal sta­tis­ti­cal pur­po­ses only, con­ta­ins no per­so­nal refe­ren­ces. It will not be shared with third par­ties, eit­her for com­mer­cial or for non-com­mer­cial pur­po­ses. Your brow­ser set­tings allow you to deci­de whe­ther coo­kies should be blo­cked or you should be war­ned befo­re they are saved. Dis­ab­ling coo­kies may limit the func­tion­a­li­ty of this website.

This data will not be mer­ged with other data sources. We reser­ve the right to sub­se­quent­ly check this data if we beco­me awa­re of spe­ci­fic indi­ca­ti­ons of ille­gal use. You can chan­ge your coo­kie set­tings at any time at the bot­tom of this page under “Chan­ge pri­va­cy settings.”


This web­site uses Borlabs Coo­kie, a tech­ni­cal­ly neces­sa­ry coo­kie for saving your coo­kie con­sent. Borlabs Coo­kie does not pro­cess any per­so­nal data.

Borlabs Coo­kie is used to save the con­sent you give when you enter the web­site. If you want to revo­ke this con­sent, sim­ply dele­te the coo­kie in your brow­ser. When you reload/​return to the web­site, you will be asked again for your coo­kie consent.


Our web­site uses Mato­mo, the open source web ana­ly­tics ser­vice. Mato­mo stores data in a coo­kie to ana­ly­ze your use of the website.

This tells us the num­ber of visi­tors to each web­site, the dura­ti­on of the visit, the search terms used, set­tings, and move­ments around the site. It also records the inter­net pro­vi­der, brow­ser type used, access date and time.

For this pur­po­se, the infor­ma­ti­on gene­ra­ted by the coo­kie about the use of this web­site is stored on the ser­ver of our hos­ting ser­vice in Ger­ma­ny. The IP address is anony­mi­zed befo­re it is saved.

Exter­nal media

Con­tent from exter­nal media such as video plat­forms and social media plat­forms is blo­cked by default. If coo­kies are accept­ed by exter­nal media, access to such con­tent no lon­ger requi­res manu­al consent.

Cont­act form

If you send us an inquiry via the cont­act form, we will save your cont­act details for the pur­po­se of pro­ces­sing your inquiry and fol­low-up. We will not share this data wit­hout your consent.

Era­su­re of data

We heed the prin­ci­ples of data avo­id­ance and data eco­no­my. We the­r­e­fo­re only store your per­so­nal data for as long as is neces­sa­ry for ful­fil­ling the pur­po­ses men­tio­ned here or as requi­red by the sta­tu­to­ry sto­rage peri­ods. After ful­fill­ment of the respec­ti­ve pur­po­se or expiry of the­se peri­ods, the cor­re­spon­ding data will be rou­ti­ne­ly era­sed or pro­ces­sing rest­ric­ted as legal­ly specified.

Use of our part­ner portal

Our part­ner por­tal may be used only by our part­ners, after sepa­ra­te regis­tra­ti­on. The data coll­ec­ted the­re will not be shared with third par­ties wit­hout your express con­sent. The log­in pro­ce­du­res are saved.

Use of BMDnet

BMD­net is ope­ra­ted on a ser­ver in Ger­ma­ny owned by the ZKRD. To use BMD­net, sepa­ra­te regis­tra­ti­on is requi­red. The data coll­ec­ted in BMd­net will not be dis­c­lo­sed to third par­ties wit­hout your express con­sent. The log­in pro­ce­du­res are saved. To use BMD­net, coo­kies and Java­Script must be enab­led in the brow­ser. The Mato­mo web ana­ly­tics ser­vice for BMD­net is also ope­ra­ted enti­re­ly on a ZKRD ser­ver in Germany.

Your rights to infor­ma­ti­on, rec­ti­fi­ca­ti­on, rest­ric­tion, era­su­re and objection

You have the right to infor­ma­ti­on, at no char­ge, about your stored per­so­nal data, its ori­gin and reci­pi­ent, and the pur­po­se of data pro­ces­sing as well as a right to rec­ti­fi­ca­ti­on or era­su­re of this data or rest­ric­tion of its pro­ces­sing at any time.
