Data protection

The Lower Saxony State Office for the Preservation of Monuments attaches great importance to the protection of personal data. We want you to know when we collect which data and how we use it.

According to Art. 2 Para. 1, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) applies "to the fully or partially automated processing of personal data that is stored or is intended to be stored in a file system." The operation of a website always leads to the automated processing of personal data. In order to use the Internet at all, data must be exchanged during communication between the computers, i.e. those who access content and those who offer content. When a computer retrieves the data, it also always tells which computer to send the data to. For this purpose, so-called IP addresses are assigned to all devices connected to the Internet. Therefore, the IP addresses of the users who visit our website and the other data transmitted by the browser are processed by us.

The legal basis for this processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter c and Letter e in conjunction with Article 57 GDPR. The data is stored in accordance with the legal requirements.

This processing does not involve automated decision-making in the sense of profiling according to Art. 22 GDPR.

We are therefore informing you on this page about the responsibilities, the collection of data and your rights in accordance with Art. 13 GDPR.

Responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR):

analysis data
Our websites use Matomo, which is a so-called web analysis service. Matomo uses so-called "cookies", which are text files that are stored on your computer and enable us to analyze the use of the website. For this purpose, the usage information generated by the cookie (including your shortened IP address) is transmitted to our server and stored for usage analysis purposes, which serves to optimize our website. Your IP address is immediately anonymized during this process, so that you as a user remain anonymous to us. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will not be passed on to third parties. You can prevent the use of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly, but it is possible that in this case you will not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. If you do not agree to the storage and evaluation of this data from your visit, you can object to the storage and use at any time with a mouse click. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in your browser, which means that Matomo does not collect any session data. Attention: If you delete your cookies, this means that the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and you may have to reactivate it.

Here you can decide whether a unique web analysis cookie may be stored in your browser to enable the operator of the website to collect and analyze various statistical data.
