a) When visiting the website
You may access the website www.projectacclaim.eu without having to disclose any details of your identity. What the browser on your terminal device does automatically is only to send information to the server of our website (e.g. browser type and version, date and time of access) so as to allow a connection with the website. This also includes the IP address of your requesting terminal device. It is temporarily stored in a so-called log file and automatically deleted after 4 days:
The IP address is processed for technical and administrative purposes regarding connection set-up and stability, to guarantee the security and functioning of our website and to be able to track any illegal attacks on the website, if required.
The legal basis for processing the IP address is the first sentence of point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. Our legitimate interest ensues from said security interest and the necessity of the unobstructed availability of our website.
We cannot draw any direct conclusions about your identity from processing the IP address and other information in the log file.
b) When using the contact form
We offer website visitors the opportunity to contact us via a form on our website www.projectacclaim.eu. To enable you to communicate with us via this form, we request the following data:
We need these required data to learn who contacted us and to process the user request.
We process the requested data in response to your enquiry. Our purpose is to answer your query in pursuit of your legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 para. 1, page 1 lit. f GDPR.
Once we have satisfied the enquiry via contact form, we will immediately delete the collected personal data.
Except for the aforementioned cases, we forward your personal data to third parties only if:
Especially if you have registered for an event, it may be necessary within the scope of performance of the contract that your personal data needs to be transferred to an external organizer. In connection with an event registration, you will be informed about who the organizer is and whether it is an external organizer. This organizer will process personal data within the scope of the event and especially for the management of participants.
Sending personal data to a third country (outside the EU) or an international organization is excluded.
Cookies contain information resulting from connection with the specific terminal device used. However, this does not mean that we have immediate knowledge of your identity.
The data processed by cookies is necessary for the purposes mentioned with due regard of our legitimate interest pursuant to the first sentence of point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR.
Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you may configure your browser so that cookies are not stored on your computer or that you are always notified before a new cookie is created. The complete disabling of cookies, however, may lead to your not being able to use all functions of our website.
On the basis of a consent pursuant to the first sentence of point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, we use components (videos) of the company YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA (hereinafter: “YouTube”), a company of Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter: “Google”) on our Internet pages.
In so doing we use the option of “extended data protection mode” provided by YouTube.
When you access a page containing an embedded video, a connection to the YouTube servers is established and the contents are displayed on the Internet page through a notification to your browser.
Pursuant to YouTube specifications, in the “extended data protection mode” your data – especially which of our Internet pages you have visited as well as device-specific information including the IP address – is sent to the YouTube servers in the US only when you view the video. By clicking on the video, you give your consent to this transfer.
If you are simultaneously logged on to YouTube, this information is assigned to your YouTube member account. You may prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website.
Google respects the data protection regulations of the “US Privacy Shield” and is registered with the “US Privacy Shield” program of the US Department of Commerce.
For more information on data protection in connection with YouTube, please refer to the data protection regulations of Google.
You have the right:
You have the right to object, on grounds relating from your particular situation, at any time to processing of your personal data, which is based on point (e) of Article 6(1) GDPR (data processing for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest) and on point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR (data processing for the purposes of the legitimate interests); this is also applicable to profiling pursuant to Article 4(4) GDPR based on this regulation.
If you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If your objection is directed against the processing of data for the purpose of direct marketing, we will stop the processing immediately. In this case, citing a special situation is not necessary. This is also applicable to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
If you wish to make use of your right to object, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
All your personal data is transferred in an encoded manner using the widely used and secure TLS (Transport Layer Security) encryption standard. TLS is a secure and proven standard that is also used for online banking, for instance. You will recognize a secure TLS connection by the additional s after http (i.e., https://..) in the address bar of your browser or from the lock icon in the lower part of your browser, among other things.
Besides, we use suitable technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously being improved as the technology advances.
This data protection information as amended in September 2018 is currently applicable.
It may become necessary to change this data protection information due to the further development of our website and its offers or on account of amended legal or official requirements.
