We are pleased about your visit on our website. Valudis n.e.V. is a recognized non-profit organization.
Liability for contents and links
We cannot assume any liability for the correctness, completeness and topicality of the contents. However, the contents of our pages have been created with the utmost care by the staff of the Valudis Association. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages in accordance with § 7 paragraph 1 TMG under the general laws. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG we are not obligated to monitor transmitted or stored information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information under the general laws remain unaffected. However, liability in this regard is only possible from the time of knowledge of a concrete infringement. If we become aware of any such infringements, we will remove the relevant content immediately.
Our website contains links to external third-party websites over whose content we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for the content of external websites. The respective provider or operator of the websites is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. The external websites linked on our website were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking. A permanent and repeated control of the contents of the linked websites is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. If we become aware of any legal violations of linked external websites, such links will be removed immediately.
The designations and brand names of external companies mentioned on our website are subject to the respective brand, patent or trademark protection. All logos and images shown as well as all brand names mentioned are the property of the respective companies and/or persons.
The contents and works available on the website are subject to German copyright law. Duplication, processing, distribution, or any form of commercialization of such material beyond the scope of the copyright law shall require the prior written consent of its respective author or creator. Copies and downloads of this site – also in extracts – are only permitted for private, non-commercial use. Insofar as the content on this website was not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties are respected. In particular, third-party content is identified as such. If, despite this, a copyright infringement should exist, we request that you inform us of this so that we can remove such content immediately.
All information on this website may contain inaccuracies or errors. Therefore, the information on this website may be changed or updated at any time without prior notice.

Purposes of data processing by the data controller and third parties
- you have given your express consent to this,
- the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you,
- the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation,
- the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data.
Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Collection of general information when visiting our website
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content of web pages requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. In particular, they are processed for the following purposes:
- Ensuring a smooth connection setup of the website,
- Ensuring the smooth use of our website,
- evaluating system security and stability, and
- for other administrative purposes.
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned data collection purposes. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. Recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if applicable, order processors. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, if necessary, in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it. The data automatically collected in this way is not merged with other data sources. However, if concrete indications of illegal use of the website become known, the collected data can be subsequently checked, for example, to determine the location of a website user.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called „cookies“. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. Through this, we automatically receive certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can facilitate your navigation and enable the correct display of our web pages.
Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
In order to protect the security of your data during transmission, we may use state-of-the-art encryption (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS – provided that data transmission, for example via a contact form or registration form, is intended and possible at all.
On the basis of your expressly given consent, we may send you our newsletter or comparable information by e-mail to your specified e-mail address on a regular basis.
To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address. When registering to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be informed by e-mail about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (for example, changes to the newsletter offer or technical circumstances).
For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that a registration is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the „double-opt-in“ procedure. For this purpose, we log the order of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the response requested herewith. No further data is collected. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter and is not passed on to third parties.
Email und contact form
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form regarding questions of any kind, you give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting you. For this purpose, it is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address. This serves the assignment of the request and the subsequent response to the same. The provision of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. After completion of your request, personal data will be deleted automatically.
Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts and Ajax Jquery)
In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Ajax and Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/).
on this website. Google Webfonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access, content is displayed in a standard font.
Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – although it is currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.
Use of Google Maps
Detailed instructions on managing your own data in connection with Google products can be found here.
Embedded YouTube videos
We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. This tells Youtube which pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.
If you have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to deal with such cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.
Embedded Vimeo videos
Auf einigen unserer Webseiten betten wir Vineo-Videos ein. Betreiber der entsprechenden Plugins ist Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. Wenn Sie eine Seite mit dem Vimeo-Plugin besuchen, wird eine Verbindung zu Servern von Vimeo hergestellt. Dabei wird Vimeo mitgeteilt, welche Seiten Sie besuchen. Wenn Sie in Ihrem Vimeo-Account eingeloggt sind, kann Vimeo Ihr Surfverhalten Ihnen persönlich zuzuordnen. Dies verhindern Sie, indem Sie sich vorher aus Ihrem Vimeo-Account ausloggen. Wird ein Vimeo-Video gestartet, setzt der Anbieter Cookies ein, die Hinweise über das Nutzerverhalten sammeln.
Die Datenschutzerklärung für Vimeo mit näheren Informationen zur Erhebung und Nutzung Ihrer Daten durch Vimeo finden Sie unter https://vimeo.com/privacy.
Außerdem ruft Vimeo über einen Frame, in dem das Video aufgerufen wird, den Tracker Google Analytics, sowie den ScoreCard Research Beacon auf. Dabei handelt es sich um ein eigenes Tracking von Vimeo, auf das wir keinen Zugriff haben. Wir haben intern das Tracking nach bestem Wissen deaktiviert, können aber nicht garantieren, dass keine Daten seitens Vimeo ermittelt werden. Sie können das Tracking aber zusätzlich unterbinden, indem Sie die Deaktivierungs-Tools einsetzen, die einige Internet-Browser anbieten.
