In accordance with the GDPR, you shall have the following rights regarding the processing of your personal data:
The consents to the data processing shall apply without any restrictions; however, you may revoke your consents at any time with effect for the future in text form without stating reasons and without this causing you any disadvantage.
You can visit the webpages of the German National Library of Economics without telling us who you are. We only get to know the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you came to our website and which of our webpages you visit. This information will be used for statistical purposes. You as an individual customer remain anonymous.
If you call up pages and files on this website and are requested to input data about yourself, we will advert you that the transmission of these data over the internet is unsecured and can therefore be noticed or even falsified by unauthorised persons.
The personal data collected on the webpages of the German National Library of Economics will only be used without your consent for the execution of contracts and in order to process your enquiries. Beyond this, your data will only be used with your prior consent for advertising and market research and the tailoring of electronic ZBW services to customer requirements. Equally, your data will only be used for tailoring individualised advertising if you have granted your consent. Your data will not be circulated to third parties. You can revoke your consent at any time, effective from the time of revocation.
We save so-called session-cookies on your hard drive which are valid only during your visit on our website. These are needed to identify and authorise you after successful login in the protected sections of our website for the duration of your visit. These cookies will automatically be deleted from your hard drive after you have ended your visit.
In order to provide you with the best possible information, we offer links to third parties’ websites on our website. Whenever it is not obvious that these are external links we will provide an explicit notice. The German National Library of Economics cannot control the contents and design of third parties’ websites. Therefore, the guarantees given by this data protection statement do not apply to those websites.
By reason of its legal mandate, the ZBW maintains close relations with scientific institutions, scientists at home and abroad, business, and with national and international institutions of research and information provision. The ZBW is active in social media networks in order to engage with our target group, to advert them to our services, and to share information with them.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) prescribes legal standards in particular for the usage of service providers not based in the EU. In these cases, your personal data will possibly be transferred to the USA and processed there. American companies have engaged to comply with EU data protection standards by means of the EU-US Privacy Shield. You can find more information about this at https://www.privacyshield.gov.
Service providers normally use personal data for purposes of market research and advertising. For this, cookies are installed on your computer that record your usage behaviour which can be used to compile user profiles. If you are logged in to one of these networks before accessing this website, your usage behaviour can be matched to your corresponding account. Below we have listed the social media networks we use for this web presence. We link to their data protection information and give notice of agreements with service providers where applicable.

Data protection policy
If you send us an e-mail, we will use your e-mail address only for corresponding with you. After the end of correspondence, your e-mail address will be deleted. It will not be used for other purposes or transmitted to third parties. We also advise you that unauthorised access and falsification are possible if e-mails are transmitted without encryption.
For cooperations, the ZBW offers mailing lists. Subscription to these mailing lists is voluntary and they will be used only with your consent. You subscribe to such a mailing list yourself, usually on a website, and you can unsubscribe the same way at any time, thus revoking your consent. You will then no longer receive any emails through this mailing list.
If you actively use mailing lists, your email will be sent to all members of the mailing list along with your name and email address. This information can then be seen, stored long-term and passed on to third parties. After sending the emails, the ZBW can no longer exert influence on the processing of these personal data.
Below we list the service providers we use for compiling mailing lists, refer to their data protection information and give notice of any agreements with these providers.
