Data protection is of high priority for the iPRODUCE consortium. Thus, the member organisations of the iPRODUCE consortium, represented by the coordinator AIDIMME, are committed to full compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other relevant legislation.

The use of this website and other website pages and contents linked to this website is possible without the provision of personal data. However, if a data subject would like to use selected services of the website, processing of personal data may occur. The processing of personal data, such as the data subject’s name, e-mail address, address or telephone number will always be in line with the GDPR, and in accordance of other country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the iPRODUCE consortium.

The purpose of this this data protection and privacy policy is to inform on the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data collected, used, and processed. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this policy, of the rights to which they are entitled.

Although iPRODUCE has implemented several measures to ensure comprehensive protection of personal data processed through this website, internet-based data transmissions may still have security gaps. Thus, complete protection cannot be guaranteed.

3 | Cookies

The pages of the iPRODUCE website use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.
By using cookies, the iPRODUCE consortium can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. Cookies allow us to recognise our website users and to make it easier for users to use the iPRODUCE website.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

 
4 | Collection of general data and information

The website of the iPRODUCE consortium collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (a) the browser types and versions used, (b) the operating system used by the accessing system, (c) the website from which an accessing system reaches the iPRODUCE website (so-called referrers), (d) the sub-websites, (e) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (f) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (g) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, the iPRODUCE consortium does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. This information is relevant to (a) deliver the content of our website correctly, (b) optimise the content of the website and its advertisement, (c) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (d) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the iPRODUCE consortium analyses anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of the project consortium, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process.

 
5 | Newsletter and project updates subscription

On the website of the iPRODUCE consortium, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to project updates and the newsletter.

The iPRODUCE consortium informs its stakeholders and other visitors regularly by means of a newsletter about project updates. The newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (a) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (b) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter shipping, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure.

The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send the iPRODUCE newsletter. The subscription to the newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for shipping the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.

8 | Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

On this website, the controller has integrated a Google Analytics component (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the traffic on the iPRODUCE website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of the iPRODUCE website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our website, and to provide other services concerning the use of the website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of the website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component.

The cookie is used to store information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google

Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.

 
9 | Data protection provisions about the application and use of Twitter

On this website, the controller has integrated Twitter components. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly accessible microblogging service on which users may publish and circulate ‘tweets’ (e.g. short messages, limited in size).

With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, the data subject’s internet browser is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding Twitter component. During this technical procedure, Twitter gains knowledge of what specific sub-page of the website was visited by the data subject and allow the website visitors to introduce this web page to the digital world and increase our visitor numbers.

The applicable data protection provisions of Twitter may be accessed under https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en.

 
10 | Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, if it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
