Privacy Policy

Data Protection Information

The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. As far as personal data (for example, name, address, or mail addresses) is collected, this occurs, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (for example, communication by mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. The use of the contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation by third parties for sending unsolicited advertising and information material is hereby expressly prohibited. We expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising information being sent, for example through spam mails.


This data protection information informs users about the type, scope and purposes of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible Internet service provider ALL-INKL.COM on this website.

The legal basis of data protection can be found in the European Union General Data Protection Regulation / EU GDPR.

In this policy, the terms “we, “us” and “our” refer to the Institute for Innovation & Valuation in Health Care (InnoValHC, Institut für Innovation & Evaluation im Gesundheitswesen e.V., An der Ringkirche 4, D-65197 Wiesbaden / Tel: +49-(0)-611-4080-789-10, Fax: +49-(0)-611-4080-789-99, Mail: info(at)

Access Data / Server Logfiles

We have a GDPR data processing agreement with our Internet service provider ALL-INKL.COM. As web space provider, ALL-INKL.COM collects data about every access to the offer, so-called server log files. Server log files / access data include:

  • name of the accessed website,
  • file, date, time and duration of the access,
  • transferred data volume,
  • notification of successful access,
  • browser type and version,
  • the user’s operating system,
  • referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  • IP address and the requesting provider.

InnoValHC e.V. uses the server log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security, and optimisation of the offer. InnoValHC e.V. reserves the right, however, to check the log data subsequently if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete evidence.

Handling of Personal Data

Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes your name, email address or telephone number. But also, data about preferences, hobbies, memberships, or which websites were viewed by someone count as personal data. Personal data is only collected, used, and passed on by the provider if this is legally permitted or if the users agree to the data collection.

In accordance to the Right of access by the data subject (Art. 15 GDPR), our visitors (as the data subject) can request information from us about any personal data stored or processed. The General Data Protection Regulation also grants website visitors whose personal data is processed additional rights, including the Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR), the Right to erasure ("right to be forgotten", Art. 17 GDPR), and the Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR).

Establishing Contact

When contacting InnoValHC e.V. (for example, via contact form, mail, telephone, or fax), the user’s details are stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and if follow-up questions arise.


In order to protect your privacy, our Institute deliberately refrains from using external statistics and analysis services. We use the Contao CMS software to generate and manage our website with the integrated Visitors and DownloadStats add-ons to analyze and statistically evaluate the use of our website. These add-ons store the following data from our visitors – without the use of JavaScript and cookies:

  • IP address,
  • browser agent,
  • referrer,
  • URL of downloaded documents.

Visitors and DownloadStats convert the IP address and other internal data into a hash value directly on the webserver and store them as a pseudonym. A recalculation is conceivable, but only with considerable effort. The hash value is not associated with any other statistical analysis. Except for the detection of bots/crawlers/spiders, which are blocked by default in Visitors, the IP address is not used for other analysis purposes.

To collect further statistical information, such as browser, language, operating system and screen resolution, the browser agent and the referrer of the visitor are read out by Visitors and DownloadStats (if available). Parts of the browser agent (not the complete string) and the URL of the referrer, together with a count and a timestamp, are stored independently and separately from the anonymized IP address. In addition, DownloadStats stores the URL of the documents downloaded by visitors so that we can count and evaluate the scientific documents we provide free of charge. Browser agent, referrer and anonymized IP address can not be associated with each other. Because it is not possible to identify personal data in Visitors, deletion at the user's request is not feasible.


We only use session cookies on our website, which are automatically deleted as soon as you end your browser session. These cookies are classified as "technically necessary cookies" and therefore do not require your consent. A session cookie stores a small text file on your computer. Text files cannot execute any code and therefore cannot cause any damage. As text, the session cookie stores an automatically generated, unique session ID consisting of a long combination of letters and numbers. The server can use this session ID to uniquely identify your session. This ensures, for example, that no unauthorized third party can manipulate a user's form entries. We do not use cookies that remain on users' computers for a longer period, for example for tracking or profiling purposes or to determine when a user visits your website again.
