We are very pleased about your interest in our website. By means of this privacy policy we would like to inform you about the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. You can retrieve this policy at any time on our website.


A use of the websites of Kompetenz statt Demenz (KsD) is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if an affected person wishes to use special services of our project via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable to KsD.

We specifically point out that the transmission of data over the Internet (for example in the case of communication by e-mail) has security gaps and cannot be completely protected against access by third parties. For this reason, every person concerned is free to submit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.


The privacy policy of KsD is based on the terms used by the European legislator in the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our privacy policy should be easy to read and understand, both for the public and for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain in advance the terminology used.

Among other things, we use the following terms in this privacy policy:

Restriction of processing

The restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim to limit their future processing.

In particular, to analyze or predict aspects of work performance, economic condition, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location of that natural person.


Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.

It consists of a string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual’s browser from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID.
By using cookies, KsD can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies.
