Thank you for your interest in our website and our organisation.
Protection and transparency in handling your personal data during your visit to our website are important to us. In the following we therefore inform you which data is collected during your visit to this website and how it is used.
By using our web pages you agree to the following described data use. We are developing our website further and implementing new technologies. It may therefore be necessary to amend this data protection declaration with effect for the future. Therefore, the version available when you visit this page always applies.
1. Name and address of the data controller
"Controller" within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other data protection laws and regulations is:
EuroDIG Support Association
Telephon: +49.341.247 430 08 (office Germany)
2. General information on data processing
2. 1 Scope of processing of personal data
We process personal data of visitors to our website only insofar as this is necessary for their provision and for the contents and services offered. The processing of personal data takes place regularly only after consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for real reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
2. 2 Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) (a) of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis. In the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies for operations necessary in pre-contractual measures.
As the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our association is subject, Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our association or a third party – without the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject prevailing – Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
2. 3 Deletion of data and duration of storage
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Beyond that a storage can take place, if this is provided by the European or national legislator in union-legal regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period specified in the mentioned laws and regulations expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.
3. Provision of the website and creation of log files
3. 1. Description and scope of data processing
For the processing of the data by service providers and for the hosting of the website, agreements on order processing have been concluded in accordance with Article 28 (3) GDPR. Data transmission between the user's data processing system and our service provider's systems is encrypted by using state-of-the-art technology.
Our systems automatically collect data and information of the accessing data processing system every time the web site of the contoller is visited. In this context, the following data is collected:
- IP address of the requesting system,
- information about the browser type and version used
- the operating system of the requesting computer,
- the name of the retrieved files of our services
- date and time of retrieval
- the amount of data transferred.
These data are stored with shortened IP address in the log files of our system. This excludes the possibility of assigning them to persons. These data are not stored or combined with other personal data of the user.
3. 2 Legal basis of data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
3. 3 Purpose of data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. For this the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session.
The data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data serves us to optimize the web site and to ensure the security of our IT systems. Use of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
For these purposes, our legitimate interest in data processing according to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
3. 4. Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the delivery of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.
If the data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Further storage is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or distorted, so that an assignment of the calling system is no longer possible.
3. 5 Possibility of objection and erasure
The collection of data for providing of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user, only the chance not to use the website.
4.1 Description and scope of data processing
- Log-in information (after logging into the wiki)
- Session information for wiki use
4.2 Legal basis of data processing
The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
4.3 Purpose of data processing
The user data collected by technically necessary cookies are not used to create user profiles. For these purposes, our legitimate interest also lies in the processing of personal data in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
4.4 Duration of storage
The cookies we set are deleted when the web browser is closed (session cookie).
4.5 Possibility of objection and erasure
5. Registration for wiki use
5.1 Description and scope of data processing
On our website we offer users the opportunity to register for access to the wiki by providing personal data in order to actively participate. This will be done by sending an e-mail to the EuroDIG Secretariat.
The account is created manually. The interested party will then receive an e-mail from wiki system with a temporary password. Unless otherwise stated, the user name is formed from the first name and the 1 letter of the last name, which makes a pseudonymous use of the wiki possible.
The form of registration serves to protect our information technology systems from misuse.
5.2 Legal basis of data processing
The legal basis for the processing of personal data for wiki registration is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
5.3 Purpose of data processing
The user must register in order to participate in the wiki. The possibility to publish material in the wiki requires an identification of the users for possible liability reasons of the website operator. These purposes give rise to a legitimate interest in the processing of personal data pursuant to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
5.4 Duration of storage
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. This is the case for the data collected during the registration process if the registration on our website is cancelled or changed.
5.5 Possibility of objection and erasure
As a user you have the possibility to cancel the registration at any time. You can change or have the data stored about you changed at any time.
Use the administration function in the wiki for your account, which makes changes to your data possible. Or contact the person responsible by e-mail or at the above-mentioned postal address.
If you cancel the registration, active participation in the wiki is no longer possible.
6. Contact via e-mail
6.1 Description and scope of data processing
You can contact us via the e-mail address provided on our website. In this case, the user's personal data transmitted by e-mail will be stored. The data is used exclusively for processing the conversation. In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties.
6.2 Legal basis of data processing The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted by e-mail is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. If the e-mail contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, then additional legal basis for the processing is Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR.
6.3 Purpose of data processing If you contact us by e-mail, we have a legitimate interest in the processing of your data. Other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.
6.4 Duration of storage The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were processed. For the personal data sent via e-mail, this is the case when the conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified. Longer-term storage may result from legal regulations on retention periods or from requesting an account to the wiki. The additional personal data collected during the transmission process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.
6.5 Possibility of objection and erasure The user has the possibility at any time to object to the processing of his transmitted personal data. Your consent can be revoked either by e-mail or by post to the above contact details. All personal data stored in the course of contacting us will be deleted in this case, provided that no longer-term storage is required by statutory provisions on retention periods. In such a case, the conversation cannot be continued by e-mail.
6.6 Security note We use technical and organizational measures to store your personal data in such a way that they are not accessible by third parties. When communicating by e-mail or web form, we cannot guarantee data security during transmission, so we suggest that you send confidential information by post.
