Data Protection

The Federal Administrative Court is strongly committed to protect your personal data. We want you to know when we save data and how it is used. The provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as well as the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) apply to the Federal Administrative Court. We have taken technical and organisational steps to ensure that we and providers that process data on our behalf adhere to the data protection regulations.

Processing of personal data

When you use our website we process your personal data. We store your data on particularly protected servers in Germany. There are only few persons with specific permission that may access the data.

When you use one of our contact forms we ask for your name as well as other personal data which is necessary to deal with your matter. We process your data with your consent only, in accordance with art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of your consent does not render the prior processing of your data unlawful. We erase your personal data when it is no longer needed for the respective purposes. When you fill in the form “Führungen durch das Gerichtsgebäude” (available in German only) your personal data will be forwarded to an external service provider (processor) which organises and bills the guided tours.

When you visit our website data is stored on our servers for technical security purposes. This may allow identification (e.g. IP address, date, time, and pages retrieved). This data is processed on the basis of art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The data is erased after two weeks.

We use so-called cookies, which are small files containing configuration information. They are used to record page access and hence to align our services with the needs of our users. Cookies improve our ability to measure traffic and the number of persons using our services. This data is processed on the basis of art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

We will not record your page access if you activate the “Do Not Track” option of your browser

Disclosure of personal data and data processing by processors

We only use your data within federal institutions. We do not forward it to third parties. Should an external service provider process personal data on behalf of the Federal Administrative Court (processor) we ensure the protection of your data.

Information and rectification

We will gladly inform you of the personal data we have collected about you and how it is used. You can demand the rectification of incorrect personal data concerning yourself. We will correct the data, taking into account the purpose of the processing.
