We understand that it is important for you to protect your privacy when using our online services. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously, and we have therefore taken the necessary technical and organisational measures to ensure full compliance with the legal regulations on data protection.
This privacy statement explains how Bundesvereinigung Logistik e.V. (referred to as "BVL" in the following) handles the personally identifiable data of people who use our online sites (website and social media profiles of BVL):
The responsible entity under the terms of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is:
Bundesvereinigung Logistik (BVL) e.V.
Phone: +49 (0)421 173 84 0
Fax: +49 (0)421 16 78 00
The use of our website is generally possible without prior registration and without providing personally identifiable data. We only collect and use personally identifiable data of our users where this is necessary in order to provide a functioning website and give you access to our content and services. If this is not the case, personally identifiable is only regularly used with the consent of the user. The only exception is in cases in which it is not possible to obtain prior consent for factual reasons and the processing of data is permitted by legal regulations.
Where we obtain consent from the persons concerned for processing procedures relating to personally identifiable data, the legal basis for this is provided by Art. 6 Para. 1 a of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
When we process personally identifiable data required for the fulfilment of a contract where the affected person is a party to the contract, the legal basis for this is provided by Art. 6 Para. 1 b GDPR. This also applies to processing procedures necessary to implement pre-contractual measures.
Where processing of personally identifiable data is necessary to meet a legal obligation to which we are subject, the legal basis for this is provided by Art. 6 Para. 1 c GDPR.
In the event that vital interests of the concerned person or another natural person render it necessary to process personally identifiable data, the legal basis for this is provided by Art. Para. 1 d GDPR.
If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our association or of a third party, and if the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the concerned person do not outweigh the first-named interest, the legal basis for processing is provided by Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR. The legitimate interest of our association consists in the performance of our business activities.
We only process and store personally identifiable data of the concerned person for as long as this is required to achieve the purpose of storage. Storage beyond this point is only possible if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in legal regulations of the Union, acts or other provisions to which the entity responsible for processing is subject. As soon as the purpose of storage no longer exists or expires due to the storage period stipulated by the aforementioned regulations, the personally identifiable are routinely blocked or deleted.
We take all appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the protection of your data. Moreover, all Web forms via which you transmit sensitive data to us are encrypted and therefore protected against authorised reading to the best possible degree. For the remainder, we would like point out that transmitting data via the Internet (e.g. communication via email) is generally unprotected, with the result that data may be accessed or falsified by third parties.
Every time you call up the website, we or the page provider collect data and information via an automated system. These data and this information is stored in the logfiles of the server.
The following data may be collected during this process:
The processing of data enables us to serve the content of our website, to ensure the proper functioning of our IT systems and to optimise our website. The data in the logfiles are always stored separately from other personally identifiable data of users.

The Google tag is used to show visitors to our website interest-based advertisements within the context of the Google Display network and the Google search feature ("Google Advertising Network") as well as for the purpose of conversion tracking. When you visit our website, a cookie is stored on your computer for this purpose. The cookie enables Google to recognise the visitor when he or she calls up our webpages that belong to the advertising network of Google. Our advertisements can be shown to the visitor on these pages ("remarketing").
Moreover, Google uses the Google tag to generate a list of persons who are anonymous to us, and we use this list for remarketing in the display of Google AdWords during Google searches. In the event that you search with Google for certain search terms and the cookie on your computer has been identified by Google, our advertisement can then be displayed to you in the search results.
We are not able to identify you as a user or as a specific or identifiable person based on the information obtained from the Google tag or the cookie. In other words, we cannot assign the conversion data to any specific visitors but only have access to the overall data for our ads and keywords.. In particular, we also do not connect the data with any personally identifiable data that we may have collected about you by other means. You remain completely anonymous to us.

How can I object to data collection and processing?
The Google Maps service is integrated in the website of Bundesvereinigung Logistik in order to visualise and display the contact address. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. When you use this feature, Google collects and processes data on the use of the map function by the user. You can find more information on this data processing in the Google privacy statement.
Personally identifiable data constitute information on your person that permits conclusions as to your identity or that are indirectly or directly related to your person, such as your name, your address or your telephone number. Information that does not permit conclusions as to a specific or identifiable person do not constitute personally identifiable data.
If you use the option of registering on the website of BVL providing personally identifiable data, these data are transmitted to BVL in the respective input mask. The data are stored solely for the purpose of internal use at BVL. During the registration process, the IP address of the user and the date and time of registration are stored alongside the data outlined below. This serves to prevent misuse of the services. The data are not passed on to third parties. The only exception is when there is a legal obligation to pass on these data.
Registered persons can have the stored data deleted or changed at any time. The concerned person can receive information on the personally identifiable stored about him or her at any time.
Registration is performed on the basis of our legitimate interests. By offering the option of registration, we provide our visitors with a convenient means of regularly logging in once again and having their data stored permanently.
During the registration process, we need certain details form you such as name, telephone number, e-mail address and address. The fields of data that are required for registration and have to be entered are marked as compulsory fields in the registration menu. You have the option of providing further data (such as your mobile phone number). The data you provide are stored by us and are used solely for the purpose of providing you with the requested services and therefore fulfilling our contracts with you – e.g. reduced fees for national events and special-interest forums of BVL, for participation at seminars and courses staged by BVL Seminars and DAV, and for studies and publications of BVL in the DVZ Shop. Where necessary, the data are passed on to commissioned service providers and cooperation partners of BVL for this purpose.
"Social plug-ins" of social networks are used on this website to enable you to also use the interactive options provided by the social networks you use on our Internet pages. Separate data protection and liability regulations apply to the social networks and in general to websites of third-party providers. The storage and use of personally identifiable data by the respective website operator (service provider) resulting from the use of their services may exceed the scope of this privacy statement. BVL has no influence on which data are recorded by an activated plug-in and how these data are used by the provider. BVL itself does not collect any personally identifiable via the social plug-ins or based on the use of these plug-ins.
In order to enhance the level of protection for your data, the plug-ins are not integrated in the page in an unrestricted way but only using an HTML link (so-called "Shariff solution" of c‘t). This mode of integration ensures that when you call up a page containing these types of plug-in, this in itself does not create any connection to the servers of the provider of the social network in question. If you click on one of the buttons, a new window opens in your browser and calls up the page of the respective service provider on which you can, for example, click the "Like" or "Share" button (where applicable after entering your login data).
Please see the privacy information of the providers for the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the providers on their pages as well as for information on your relevant rights and setting options to protect your private sphere.
