        • operating system used
        • Referrer URL (the previously visited page)

We reserve the right to subsequently check this data in the event of suspected illegal use of our website and to pass it on to authorized third parties. The data will be automatically deleted after 30 days at the latest.

(3) Third party services
Our website uses content, services and benefits from third-party providers. These are, for example, tools for sending newsletters, analyzing user behavior or displaying geographic maps or videos. So that the services can be made available, it is imperative that the IP address is transmitted from your end device to the third-party provider. Wherever possible, we chose a low-privacy configuration. However, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be saved.

Third party providers are listed below:

Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Sending email newsletters
Our website uses the service Newsletter2Go to send e-mail newsletters. Your voluntarily provided personal data will be passed on to this service provider so that the desired email newsletter can be sent. We use the double opt-in procedure for registration. This means that we will only send you newsletters if you confirm your registration after sending us your email address via an email we have sent and a link contained therein.
The registration and confirmation are logged. This is to ensure that only you as the user of the specified email address can register for the newsletter service. Your confirmation must be made promptly when we send the email, otherwise your registration and email address will be deleted from the service provider’s database. Until you have confirmed it, our newsletter service will not accept any further registrations at this email address. You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time. You can either send us an e-mail or cancel using a link at the end of the newsletter.

Display YouTube videos
We have included videos from the provider YouTube on our website (YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., based in 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).
We have embedded our videos in the so-called “extended data protection mode” to enable you to view them in a privacy-friendly manner. When you play the videos, a connection to a YouTube server is established. This tells YouTube which of our websites you have visited.

If you are logged in as a member of YouTube, YouTube will assign this information to your personal user account. When using the service, e.g. Clicking the start button of a video will also assign this information to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your YouTube user account and other user accounts of the companies YouTube LLC and Google Inc. before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies of the companies. Further information on data processing and information on data protection by YouTube can be found at

This data protection declaration does not regulate the collection, transfer or handling of personal data by third parties. Please check the data protection declaration of the responsible body.

(5) Social Media
The Ulm innovation region does not use social media plugins, but so-called social bookmarks (these are only included on our website as a link to the corresponding services. After clicking on the integrated graphic, the user is forwarded to the website of the respective provider). In addition, if a website is forwarded via the “Share this content” button, the corresponding website can be seen on Twitter, Facebook etc. and can be seen there as an activity in the respective profile of the user.

(6) data security
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure, which is why we cannot guarantee the security of the data transmitted via our website. We protect our website and other IT systems by appropriate technical and organizational measures against loss of availability, integrity and confidentiality.
