Privacy Policy

We respect the privacy of our users and we have updated this Privacy Policy to demonstrate its commitment to protecting your privacy in line with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). The Privacy Policy is intended to describe for you, as an individual who is a user of our online services, the information we collect, how that information may be used, with whom it may be shared, and your choices about such uses and disclosures.

We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy carefully when using our website or services. By using our websites or any of our applications, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Policy.

If you have any questions about our privacy practices, please refer to the end of this Privacy Policy for information on how to contact us.

Personal information collected

We may collect personal information that can identify you, such as your name and email address, and other information that does not identify you.
Stakeholder database: We keep the contact information of the stakeholders who we meet during events, networking activities:

  • Inventory data (Name, address)
  • Contact data (Email, phone number)
  • Usage data (visited websites, access)
  • Meta-/Communication data (browser details, IP addresses)

This information is securely stored on specially protected servers. These servers can be accessed only by a limited number of carefully selected persons of our consortium who are subject to strict confidentiality requirements. It isn’t used outside the framework of the project nor transmitted to 3rd parties without prior consent of the person.

Newsletter subscription: We use a third party service (Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.) (see privacy policy: MailChimp).

The service provider may use the data of the recipients in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve their own services, e.g. for the technical optimization and the presentation of newsletters or for statistical purposes. However, the service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to address them themselves or to pass the data on to third parties.

The subscribers can unsubscribe/opt out at any time and the information will be deleted (link).
