1. Privacy Policy

GRS takes the protection of personal data very seriously and collects this data sparingly and only where it is necessary for the user-friendly provision of our information services. We want you to know when we store which data and how we use it. As a company under private law, we are subject to the provisions of the European Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the data protection regulations are observed both by us and by external service providers.

a.) General information

In order to better adapt our websites and apps to your needs and to ensure the security of our information technology systems, personal data such as your IP address is collected and processed in various ways - in particular through cookies, server log files into our website.

Which personal data is specifically collected (b.), to what extent personal data is passed on to third parties and what rights you have as data subjects (c.) are explained below.
For questions and information about data protection at GRS, please contact the data protection officer of GRS gGmbH.

Gesellschaft für Anlagen- und Reaktorsicherheit (GRS) gGmbH
Schwertnergasse 1
50667 Köln

E-Mail: datenschutzbeauftragter@grs.de

He is also the contact person for the enforcement of your rights as a party concerned (see 1 c.).

b.) Information on the (automatic) collection and processing of personal data, on the purposes of data processing and to determine the legality of processing in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO


We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Cookies are text information files that your web browser stores on your computer when you open one of our websites. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change. The data recorded includes

  • Language settings
  • Log-in information
  • Entered search terms
  • Frequency of page views
  • Use of website functions.

If you wish to prevent the use of cookies, you can refuse the acceptance of cookies in your browser. Please refer to your browser manufacturer's instructions to find out how this works in detail.

Communication via contact form, registration form, e-mail or newsletter

We collect personal data when you voluntarily provide us with it, for example when you contact us. The personal data transmitted to us in this way will, of course, be used exclusively for the purpose for which you provided it to us when contacting us or registering for an event. A communication of this information takes place expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent, the legal basis being Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR. Insofar as this information relates to communication channels (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number), you also agree that we may contact you via this communication channel in order to respond to your request. You can, of course, withdraw your declarations of consent at any time for the future.

Server logs (log files)

When you use our website, our servers automatically record data for security purposes that may allow identification. These server log files contain the IP address, browser type, browser language, date and time of your request and pages viewed. There is no personal utilisation. We store IP addresses for a maximum period of seven days. Storage takes place for reasons of data security in order to guarantee the stability and operational security of our system. These server log files do not leave the GRS website structure. A statistical compilation of the GRS web servers is carried out at hourly intervals. The log files of the web server serve as a source here; but they are only used in anonymised form after the one-time processing (e.g. the calls made by Google links are only recorded as a continuous number in the statistics, but a list of IP addresses is not kept). The local statistics are therefore anonymous.

c.) Rights of the data subject

If personal data is processed by you, you are the data subject in terms of the GDPR or the BDSG and you have various rights (in particular the right of information Art. 15 GDPR, the right of correction Art. 16 GDPR, the right of deletion Art. 17 GDPR, the right of limitation of processing Art. 18 GDPR, and the right to object Art. 21 GDPR) vis-à-vis the person responsible.

Please note: If the identification of the data subject by the data controller, for which purposes a data controller processes personal data, is not or no longer required, the data controller is not obliged under Art. 11 GDPR to store, collect or process additional information in order to identify the data subject in order merely to comply with this Regulation. If the data controller can demonstrate that he is unable to identify the data subject, he shall, where possible, inform the data subject accordingly. In such cases, Articles 15 to 20 shall not apply, unless the data subject provides additional information enabling his/her identification in order to exercise his/her rights under those Articles.

Right to revoke a data protection declaration of consent
You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of presumed infringement, if you consider that the processing of your personal data is in breach of the GDPR.

The supervisory authority with which the complaint was lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.

2. Content of the online offer

The author assumes no liability for the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author relating to material or immaterial damage caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information are excluded unless there is evidence of wilful intent or gross negligence on the part of the author. All web pages are subject to change and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete parts of the pages or the entire website without prior notice or to discontinue publication temporarily or permanently.

3. References and links, legal validity of the disclaimer

The author is not responsible for any contents linked or referred to from his pages - unless he has full knowledge of illegal contents and would be able to prevent the visitors of his site from viewing those pages. The author hereby expressly declares that at the time the links were created, no illegal content was recognisable on the linked pages. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked pages. The author therefore expressly distances himself from all contents of all linked pages that have been changed since the link was created. This statement applies to all links and references set within the author's own website as well as to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and in particular for damages arising from the use or non-use of such information, the provider of the page to which reference is made is solely liable, not the party who merely refers to the respective publication via links.

This disclaimer is to be regarded as part of the internet publication which you were referred from. If sections or individual terms of this statement are not legal or correct, the content or validity of the other parts remain unaffected by this fact.

4. Copyright and trademark law

The author endeavours to observe the copyrights of the photographs, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications, to use photographs, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by himself or to use licence-free photographs, graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts.

All brands and trademarks mentioned within the website and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the applicable trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. The mere fact that a trademark is mentioned should not lead to the conclusion that it is not protected by the rights of third parties!

The copyright for published objects created by the author himself remains solely with the author of the pages. Any duplication or use of objects such as diagrams, sounds or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the author's agreement.

Insofar as GRS publishes reports created by it within the scope of its website, these are protected by copyright. The prohibition to change (§ 62 UrhG) and the requirement to cite the source (§ 63 UrhG) must be observed when using, duplicating or publicly reproducing the reports or parts thereof.
