Welcome to our website! The LGA is pleased that you are interested in our company. Protecting your personal data is something we take seriously as we would like you to feel safe and comfortable when visiting our site.
Acquiring and processing personal data
As a rule, you can visit the LGA website without us asking you for any personal data (storing and using cookies, etc.).
Personal details are only acquired when you give them to us, for example in the course of registration, a survey or for the implementation of a contract.
Use and transmission of personal data and earmarking
Any personally related data in the LGA's Internet services is acquired, processed and used in accordance with the valid regulations for the protection of personal data, and solely for the purposes of contract handling and the protection of our own business interests such as consultancy and service for our clients and interested parties.
This data is disclosed by the user on an expressly voluntary basis. The use and payment of all services offered is also permitted - as far as technically possible and reasonable - without revelation of such data or using anonymous data or a pseudonym.
Right of information and public procedural register
On request, we will inform you in writing, in accordance with current law, if personal data on you is stored by us, and if so, what.
We have summarized the details for you in a procedural register, in accordance with section 4e of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
The LGA uses technical and organisational security measures to protect the data you have entrusted to us from accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access to unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
