Data privacy

Please note that the operators of websites linked to from www.in.bayern.de may record and evaluate data about visitors to the respective websites. This also applies to websites operated by the Bavarian State Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, Family and Integration on external servers, such as the StMAS channel on YouTube. Please observe the data privacy policies on the respective websites.

Logging

If you access this or other websites, you transfer data to our web server via your web browser. The following data is recorded while the connection is active for the purposes of communication between your web browser and our web server:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • Full IP address of the computer making the request
  • Volume of data transmitted

We store this data for technical security reasons, particularly to protect against attempted attacks on our web server. The data is made anonymous after a period of no more than seven days by shortening the IP address to the level of the domain so that it is no longer possible to link it to an individual user. The data is processed exclusively for this purpose and in anonymous form for statistical purposes. It will not be compared with other databases and will not be transferred to third parties either in whole or in part.

Cookies

When you access this website, we save cookies (small files) that are valid for a period of 12 months on your hard drive. We use these cookies exclusively for the purposes of identifying you during this visit and any subsequent visits to our website. Most browsers are configured to accept cookies automatically. However, you can deactivate this function for the current session or also permanently via the settings for your Internet browser.

Videos on this website are embedded from YouTube. The service provider may save cookies to the user’s computer when these videos are played. We have no influence over the saving of cookies in this case.

Local storage

We use the storage capacity of your Internet browser to save certain information, such as that required for providing a high-contrast view or to allow YouTube videos to be displayed. The data contained within this information is saved until the local storage cache for your browser is deleted.

Opt-in processes

Videos from the external video platform YouTube are integrated into various sections of the website www.in.bayern.de.

NO data will be transferred to the service provider the first time the website is visited. It is only after you have given your approval via the opt-in process on www.in.bayern.de that data (including, amongst other things, the current web page and the IP address of the user) will be transferred to the service provider with immediate effect and during every subsequent visit. You can decide yourself whether to activate the YouTube videos and thus to authorise the transfer of data or withdraw this authorisation again (opt-in process).

By default, deactivated images of the YouTube channel are embedded on the website that do not automatically establish a connection to the YouTube servers. Therefore, the service provider does not receive any data from the user when the websites are visited. It is only after you have given your approval for the playing of YouTube videos by clicking on “Permanently activate” that data is transferred to the relevant service provider. In order to save the user’s desired setting, the “Bayern” server saves a variable in the local storage of the browser. The videos are then active and can be played by the user. If you want to deactivate the automatic loading of YouTube videos, you need to delete the local storage for your browser. This can be achieved for the browser Firefox by e.g. using the Firefox add-on “Foundstone HTML5 Local Storage Explorer”. If using the browser Microsoft Edge, the local storage can be deleted via the developer tools (F12), in the tab debugger.

Deactivating the transmission of data for YouTube videos

Permanently deactivate

Active components

The active component JavaScript is used to provide the information offered by the publishing authority. You can deactivate this function in the settings for your web browser.

Evaluation of user behaviour (web tracking systems)

Programs for evaluating user behaviour are only used by us in an anonymous form. Your IP address will firstly be saved anonymously and only then is it evaluated by us. You can decide here whether a cookie is saved to your browser for an unambiguous web analysis. If you decide to allow this cookie to be saved, you enable the operator of the website to collect and analyse various statistical data in detail. Following the evaluation, the raw data collected is deleted after a maximum of six months. The evaluation and deletion of the data is carried out by employees of the Bavarian State Office for Digitization, Broadband and Surveying on behalf of the Bavarian State Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, Family and Integration. If you do not want to authorise the operator of the website to collect and analyse your statistical data in detail, please click the following option with your mouse to enter a tick:

Collection of other data

You can enter personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses) on the website operated by the Bavarian State Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, Family and Integration when you write to the Bavarian State Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs, Family and Integration, subscribe to newsletters, provide feedback and, where applicable, participate in discussion forums. The use of the provided services by the user takes place on an expressly voluntarily basis.

The email addresses used for sending out newsletters or other email subscriptions are saved on a server at the Bavarian State Office for Digitization, Broadband and Surveying and are not used for any other purposes other than for sending the newsletter or the email subscription. The subscriber to the newsletter or another email subscription can cancel the subscription themselves at any time; the email addresses are automatically deleted as a result.

In all cases (correspondence, newsletters, feedback, etc.), the personal data entered (especially names, email addresses, addresses) is only processed for the purposes of sending the desired information or for the other purposes explicitly stated on the individual forms and is not transferred to third parties.

Encryption

Information you send to us in unencrypted form by electronic post (email) could possibly be accessed and read by third parties along the transmission path. In general, we are also unable to check your identity and do not know who is behind an email address. Therefore, legally secure communication cannot be guaranteed via a simple email. Similar to many email providers, we apply a filter to protect against unwanted advertising (SPAM filter) that in rare cases may also automatically classify normal emails incorrectly as unwanted advertising and delete them. Emails containing harmful programs (viruses) will be automatically deleted by us in all cases.

If you wish to send us a sensitive or confidential message, we recommend that you encrypt and sign the message in order to prevent it being read or falsified by unauthorised persons along the transmission path or that you send us the message via conventional post. Encrypted emails can be sent to us as follows:

You can send PGP-encrypted emails to us at the following email address: poststelle@stmas.bayern.de

You can request the required PGP communication key (Public Key) from the central PGP Key Server of the Bavarian Public Authorities Network at: “pgp-keyserver.bayern.de”. Information on setting up PGP for communication with the Bavarian administrative bodies (PDF 774 KB)

You will find information on the free “Gpg4win” encryption software, which was developed on behalf of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) for the purposes of providing security in information technology, on the website www.gpg4win.de.

Please also let us know whether and in what form we can send you encrypted emails in response to your correspondence and whether – if this is not possible – you will accept an unencrypted reply via email to your correspondence. If you are unable to receive encrypted emails, please provide us with your postal address so that we may respond to your confidential correspondence by letter.

Electronic post (email)

Information you send to us in unencrypted form by electronic post (email) could possibly be accessed and read by third parties along the transmission path. In general, we are also unable to check your identity and do not know who is behind an email address. Therefore, legally secure communication cannot be guaranteed via email.

Similar to many email providers, we apply a filter to protect against unwanted advertising (SPAM filter) that in rare cases may also automatically classify normal emails incorrectly as unwanted advertising and delete them. Emails containing harmful programs (viruses) will also be automatically deleted by us.
