Data protection

The Bund Deutscher Landschaftsarchitekten, operator of these pages, takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations as well as this data protection declaration.

We would like to use our website to provide you with information about our work and refer as the legal basis for this to the processing for the protection of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. Insofar as personal data (for example, name, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We point out that data transmission over the Internet (eg communication by e-mail) security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Server Log Files

When you visit our website, the provider stores in so-called server log files data that your Internet browser automatically transmits to the provider, in particular:

  • Date and time of the server request
  • description of the type of web browser used
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL (page from which the file was requested)
  • name of the requested file
  • amount of data transferred
  • access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • IP address of the accessing device

This data is stored for a period of 7 days. The IP address is anonymized immediately after processing and before it is stored. This data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of concrete indications of unlawful use.

SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


If you send us inquiries by e-mail, your data will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent. We delete the inquiries if they are no longer necessary. We check the necessity on an ongoing basis; furthermore, the statutory retention periods apply.


When users call up the offer, one or more cookies are stored on their computer. A cookie is a small file that contains a certain string of characters and may uniquely identify your browser. With the help of cookies, the provider improves the comfort and quality of its service, for example by saving user settings. Cookies do not cause any damage to the user's computer and do not contain viruses.
We use session cookies to provide login functionalities.

It is also possible to use the service without cookies. Users can deactivate the storage of cookies in their browser, limit them to certain websites or set their browser to notify them before a cookie is stored. You can delete cookies from your computer's hard drive at any time using the privacy functions of your browser. In this case, the functions and user-friendliness of the offer could be limited.

This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other e-mail addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements.

Your rights as a user

When processing your personal data, the DSGVO grants you certain rights as a website user:

Right to rectification and erasure (Art. 16 and 17 GDPR): You have the right to request without undue delay the rectification of any inaccurate personal data concerning you and, where applicable, the completion of any incomplete personal data.

You also have the right to request that personal data concerning you be deleted without undue delay, provided that one of the reasons listed in detail in Art. 17 DSGVO applies, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued.

Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 DSGVO): You have the right to request the restriction of processing if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 DSGVO applies, e.g. if you have objected to the processing, for the duration of any review.
