Privacy Policy


We are aware that the protection of your privacy is important to you when using our website. The protection of your privacy in the processing of personal data and the security of all business data is an important concern that we take into account in our business processes. We process personal data collected during your visit to our online offers confidentially and only in accordance with legal regulations.

Responsible company for processing your data is Crime Prevention Council Lower Saxony; exceptions are explained in this data protection information.
The contact details are as follows: Crime Prevention Council Lower Saxony, Ministry of Justice Lower Saxony, Am Waterlooplatz 5a, 30169 Hanover

Collection of Data

We collect and process personal data only to the extent necessary for the establishment and content design or change of the legal relationship (inventory data). The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. As far as on our sides personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) are raised, this takes place, as far as possible, always on voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) is regularly unsecured and may therefore have security gaps, so that the data can be viewed or falsified by unauthorised persons.

Data Processing on this Website

When you visit our websites, data that your browser automatically transmits to us is recorded on the web server of our hosting service provider and stored for a short period of time and then deleted in order to identify malfunctions and security reasons (e.g. to clarify attempted attacks). Only the following information is logged:

  • Name of the retrieved files or information
  • IP address (Internet Protocol address) of the terminal from which the online service is accessed
  • Internet address of the website from which the online offer was accessed (originating referrer URL)
  • date and time as well as duration of retrieval
  • the amount of data transferred
  • Operating system and information on the Internet browser used
  • http status code (e.g. "Request successful" or "404. requested file not found").

The storage serves technical and statistical purposes. It is not merged with other data sources.


Some of the Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
We use so-called "session cookies" on our websites, which are small text files that are stored on the user's computer and are automatically deleted (depending on the setting of your browser program) when you end your visit to our website and close your browser. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies. As a rule, your browser is set so that it automatically accepts cookies. You can also allow or disallow the acceptance of cookies in certain cases. In this case, however, this can lead to functional restrictions of the website. Please refer to the operating instructions for your browser to find out how these settings can be made.

External Links

We use links on our websites to external sites whose contents are not on our server. The external contents of these links were checked when the links were set. However, it cannot be ruled out that the contents may have been subsequently changed by the respective providers. After clicking on the link, we no longer have any influence on the collection, processing and use of any personal data transferred to the third party by clicking on the link (such as the IP address or the URL of the page on which the link is located), since the conduct of third parties is naturally beyond our control. We assume no responsibility for the processing of such personal data by third parties.
Should you notice that the content of external providers violates applicable law, please let us know.

Right to Information, Deletion, Blocking, Objection

You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing at any time.
Furthermore, you can revoke your consent to the collection, processing and use of your personal data for the future at any time. You can contact us at any time at the addresses given in the imprint.
Personal data will be deleted if you revoke your consent to its storage, if knowledge of the personal data is no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which it was stored or if its storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons.
Data which is required for accounting and bookkeeping purposes or which is subject to the legal obligation to retain data are not affected by this.

Pseudonymised Use of the Website

As a matter of principle, you can visit our Internet pages without providing us with personal data. Pseudonymised usage data are not combined with the data of the bearer of the pseudonym. Pseudonymous user profiles are not created.

Changes to the Data Protection Notice

We reserve the right to change our security and data protection measures if this is necessary due to technical developments. In these cases we will also adapt our data protection information accordingly. Please therefore note the current version of our data protection notice.


For information, suggestions and complaints regarding the processing of your personal data, you are welcome to contact us. You can reach us at the address given in the "Person in Charge" section. Should incorrect information be stored despite our efforts to ensure that the data is correct and up-to-date, we will correct this at your request.
