Some of the internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you require (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for analyzing your surfing behavior) are stored, these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.

Contract for order processing
We have concluded an order processing contract with Usercentrics. This is a contract stipulated by data protection law, which ensures that Usercentrics processes the personal data of our website visitors only in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

• Browser type and browser version
• the operating system used
• Referrer URL
• Host name of the accessing computer
• Time of the server request
• IP address

This data will not be merged with other data sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Use of the online booking tool from OBS OnlineBuchungService GmbH

Our online presence uses the online booking tool (hereinafter "OBT") from OBS OnlineBuchungService GmbH, Im Gewerbepark D 33, 93059 Regensburg (, hereinafter "OBS"). As part of the OBT, OBS processes the data as the person responsible. The information and provisions on data protection can be found in the OBS data protection declaration for the OBT, which you can access at any time from the OBT or at

Electronic mail (email)
Information that you send to us unencrypted by electronic mail (e-mail) can possibly be read by third parties during transmission. As a rule, we also cannot verify your identity and we do not know who is hiding behind an e-mail address. Legally secure communication by simple e-mail is therefore not guaranteed. Like many e-mail providers, we use filters against unwanted advertising ("SPAM filters"), which in rare cases automatically classify normal e-mails as unwanted advertising and delete them. E-mails that contain harmful programs (“viruses”) are automatically deleted by us in any case.

Data protection
Insofar as the Schwandorf district website has the option of entering personal or business data (e.g. name, address, telephone number, email address), it is assumed that this personal data is provided voluntarily. Since the transmission of information on the Internet is not completely secure, it cannot be ruled out that third parties may intercept or change transmitted data. Other types of transmission should therefore be used in matters that require special confidentiality. The employees of the Schwandorf District Office are obliged to maintain secrecy and to comply with the relevant statutory data protection regulations.

Video surveillance of vending machines and donation boxes
The purpose and legal basis of data processing is the exercise of domiciliary rights, deterrence of theft, burglary and the associated damage to property (Art. 6 Para. 1 Letter e, Para. 2 and Para. 3 DSGVO in conjunction with Article 24 BayDSG). Insofar as this is necessary to avert dangers to public safety and order or to prosecute administrative offenses of considerable importance or criminal offenses, the data will be passed on to the police. The data will be deleted after 48 hours or when they are no longer required to achieve the purpose.

Rights of data subjects according to the GDPR
If your personal data is processed, you have the right to receive information about the data stored about you (Art. 15 GDPR). If incorrect personal data is processed, you have the right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR). If the legal requirements are met, you can request the deletion or restriction of processing and object to processing (Articles 17, 18 and 21 GDPR). If you have consented to the data processing or if there is a data processing contract and the data processing is carried out using automated procedures, you may have the right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR). If you make use of your above-mentioned rights, the public body will check whether the legal requirements for this have been met. Furthermore, there is a right of appeal to the Bavarian State Commissioner for Data Protection.
You can revoke your consent to the processing of your data at any time for the future. The legality of the data processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation is not affected by this.
