Data Privacy Statement of the Robert Koch Institute
The protection of personal data is a very important objective of the Robert Koch Institute. As a federal authority, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) is subject to the provisions of the Federal Data Privacy Act (BDSG). The utilisation of the web offering of RKI (www.rki.de) is, as a matter of principle, possible without the disclosure of personal data.
These web pages are hosted by the Federal Information Technology Centre as IT service provider for the federal authorities. The Federal Information Technology Centre compiles usage statistics for the websites hosted by it. For this purpose it uses the programme AWStats (status: January 2013). You will find the Data Privacy Statement of the Federal Information Technology Centre below. The Federal Information Technology Centre provides the Robert Koch Institute with evaluations of the usage of the Internet offering www.rki.de. The Robert Koch Institute uses these evaluations, which do not include any personal data, exclusively for the purpose of analysing, updating and improving its website.
The website www.rki.de offers the possibility to contact employees of the Institute, send messages or make enquiries. As a rule we use forms for this purpose. The mandatory fields of the forms are limited for reasons of data privacy to the minimum which is necessary to answer the enquiries. The personal data transmitted by you in this connection are exclusively used to answer your enquiries. They are not passed on to third parties. Your data are transmitted in encrypted form by a secure socket layer (SSL) connection so that unauthorised persons cannot view them (https connection).
If you make use of the possibility to order information material through the website, we need your address data. We will use such data exclusively for the processing of your order.
