The International Data Spaces Association takes the protection of personal data very seriously. We want you to know when we store which data and how we use it. As an association we are subject to the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the data protection regulations are observed both by us and by external service providers.
Personal data are information that can be used to determine a user's identity. This includes information such as user name, address, postal address and telephone number. Information that is not directly associated with the real identity of the user (such as favourite websites or number of users of a site) is not included. Users can use our online offering without disclosing their identity. Personal data is only collected if the user provides it of his or her own accord – for example when registering, making an enquiry via the contact page or submitting an online application.
Access to this data is only possible for a few specially authorised persons who are involved with the technical or editorial support of the servers. In connection with user access, data are stored on our servers for security purposes which may allow identification (for example IP address, date, time and pages viewed). These data are not utilized in a personalised form. We reserve the right to statistically evaluate anonymised data records.
The IP address is stored for data security reasons in order to guarantee the stability and operational security of our system.
1 Disclosure of personal information to third parties
We do not pass on personal information to third parties without the users’ explicit consent. Should data be passed on to service providers within the scope of order data processing, they are bound by the BDSG and other legal regulations. In so far as we are legally obliged to or obliged to do so by court order, we will transfer your data to such bodies that are legally entitled to receive such information.
2 Right of withdrawal
Persons under the age of 18 should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians.
Our website may contain links to other websites. We have no influence over whether their operators comply with the data protection regulations.
5 Reserve the right to change
The rapid development of the internet requires adjustments to the data protection declaration from time to time. We will inform you of any necessary changes.
6 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies" that are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will shorten your IP address beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting member states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use.
You can find more information at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or at www.google.com/intl/de_DE/analytics/learn/privacy.html.
We would like to point out that Google Analytics has been extended on these Internet pages by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" in order to guarantee the anonymous collection of IP addresses in compliance with data protection regulations.
