Following the requirements of the GDPR (data privacy regulation) of the European Commission we established this privacy statement to explain, which information we collect, how we use and process your personal data and which decisions you, as a visitor of our websites, can make. acib collects personal data on the following websites:
Automatic data storage
Storage and use of personal data
Personal data you transmit on an acib website such as name or email address will be used together with date and IP-address only for the use intended. We, therefore, collect, process and use the data made available to us only for purposes agreed with you or with your consent or otherwise, if there is a legal foundation in accordance with the GDPR. An exception to this is the use for statistical purposes, provided that the data provided has been made anonymous.
The collection, processing and use of your personal data is carried out exclusively in compliance with data protection and civil law provisions. Only such personal data are collected that are necessary for the implementation and processing of our offered services or that you have voluntarily provided to us. This data will be stored securely and not transferred to third parties. This means we use personal data only for communication with visitors who explicitly desire to stay in contact and for processing services and products offered on our website. We will not forward your personal data without your prior consent. We will not retain data for longer than it is necessary to fulfill our agreed, contractual or legal obligations.
Your request for information, rectification, deletion, restriction, data transfer and/or objection as well as the withdrawal of consent can be sent to the following e-mail address: email@example.com
Data Security and notification of data breaches
We use https for secure internet data transfer. The use of TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transfer enables us to guarantee the protection of confidential data. The use of secure data transfer is indicated by a small lock symbol at the upper left side of the website address in your Browser window and the use of https as part of our internet address.
Our newsletters are distributed through the Mailchimp system of The Rocket Science Group, LLC (675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA).
If you subscribe to a free newsletter, your data is transferred to Mailchimp. Mailchimp, therefore, stores, processes and uses your data for this purpose in the US. We would like to point out that currently, in the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is no adequate level of protection within the meaning of the GDPR for the transfer of data to the US. This may be associated with various risks for the lawfulness and security of data processing.
However, Mailchimp uses standard contractual clauses approved by the EU Commission as defined in Art 46 para 2 c) GDPR, as included in their Data Processing Addendum: https://mailchimp.com/legal/data-processing-addendum/
Your data is, therefore, processed and stored by Mailchimp on the legal foundation of Article 46 GDPR (standard contractual clauses).
We would like to point out that YouTube processes data in the US, among other places, and that currently, in the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is no adequate level of protection within the meaning of the GDPR for the transfer of data to the US. This may be associated with various risks for the lawfulness and security of data processing.
Your data is, therefore, processed and stored by YouTube/Google on the legal foundation of your consent within the meaning of Art 49 para 1 lit a GDPR.
