Each time you access our website and retrieve a file, the following information is stored automatically:

  • The user's IP address
  • The user's internet service provider
  • Date and time of access
  • The accessed page of our website offer/name of the retrieved file
  • The websites from which the user's system accesses our website
  • The websites accessed by the user's system via our website
  • The amount of data transferred
  • Notification whether access/retrieval was successful
  • The browser and operating system utilised
  • The session ID used
  • The equipment used
  • Security-related actions (for example, incorrect password entry, deleting user account)
  • Security-related tampering with the application

The log files contain IP addresses of the calling system, which allow for an assignment to a user. Other data that is logged is limited to purely technical information. The data is stored in the log files of our system. This data will not be stored together with other personal data of the user.
The logging of the BA’s Internet pages takes place exclusively on the BA’s own web servers for a maximum period of 27 days.

This information is processed for backup purposes. The BA pursues legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 lit. f of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as this is the only way to ensure the availability and integrity of the portal. There are no other categories of data recipients than the employees who manage the BA's portal.

When using the website, so-called session cookies are used. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the local cache of the website's browser. These cookies serve the purpose of supporting the use of the portal in the course of the respective "session," and are deleted after the end of the use. Additionally, cookies are used for a statistical visitor evaluation of the website and to ensure a user-friendly design of the platform. Cookies allow the recognition of the browser during later visits to the website. The lifespan of the cookies we use is limited to 30 days. The cookies do not store any personal data or IP-addresses.

Reading the content on the platform is possible without restriction with the technically necessary cookies. You must have agreed to the use of these cookies. There are different types of cookies that you actively select and you must agree to their selection. You can change these cookie settings at any time using the following link: cookie settings

This website includes videos that are made available via a video management platform from the external service provider movingimage EVP GmbH (Stralauer Allee 7,10247 Berlin). When a video is called up, a so-called “view event” is created using our web analysis software. This means that the video ID and the URL where the video is embedded are sent to us. The information obtained here does not allow us to draw conclusions about a natural person.

When playing the videos, the video platform operator movingimage uses first-party cookies, in which certain information on the display and playback of videos is transferred to movingimage, as standard for analytical evaluations. The information obtained here does not allow any conclusion to be drawn about a natural person. The video user’s IP address will be stored by movingimage in encrypted form for a maximum period of 13 months. Additional information on data collection by movingimage as well as your rights in this regard and the available settings options for protecting your privacy can be found in movingimage’s data protection information at https://www.movingimage.com/gtc/privacy-policy-of-movingimage-evp-gmbh/?noredirect=en-US.

The BA uses the web analysis software Matomo for statistical visitor evaluation of the website (tracking). This enables visitor behaviour on the platform to be evaluated anonymously. Anonymization is achieved by masking the last two bytes of the IP address (example IP address: 192.168.xxx.xxx). Conclusions about the identity of “users” and “participants” are therefore not possible.

The data centre of the Bundesagentur für Arbeit is located in Nuremberg. The information serves to further develop and improve the platform.

A statistical evaluation of your visit only takes place if you have selected the cookie type “Statistics” and confirmed your selection. Otherwise no evaluation takes place. You can view your settings via the link: cookie settings

Affected persons have the opportunity to contact the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (Husarenstr. 30, in 53117 Bonn), if they believe that the processing of their data is in breach of the General Data Protection Regulation.
