Privacy Policy

Our data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator within the framework of the Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Our data protection declaration should be readable and understandable for the public, but also for our participants, customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would first like to explain some of the terms used.

1. Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier, or by reference to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

2. Data subject

Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

3. Processing

Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data or personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

4. Profiling

Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain aspects of a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects of that person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or movements.

5. Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific person without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not assigned to a specific or identifiable natural person.

6. Controller

The controller shall be the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or national law, the controller or the specific criteria for their designation may be determined by Union or national law.

7. Processor

Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

8. Recipient 

The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body to which the personal data is transferred, whether or not it is a third party. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation under Union or national law shall not be considered as recipients; the processing of such data by those authorities shall be carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection rules and in accordance with the purposes of the processing.

9. Third parties

Third parties are natural or legal persons, public authorities, agencies or bodies other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized to process personal data under the direct supervision of the controller or processor.

The person responsible within the meaning of the DSGVO and other national data protection laws of the member states and other data protection regulations is

1. Scope of processing

As a matter of principle, we process personal data of our website visitors and users only to the extent necessary to provide a functioning website and our contents and services. The processing of personal data of our users is regularly only carried out with the consent of the user. An exception is made in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.

2. Legal basis

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d DSGVO serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.

3. Storage and deletion of your data

We delete or block personal data of the person concerned as soon as the purpose of the storage is no longer applicable. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which our company is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the above-mentioned standards expires, unless it is necessary to continue storing the data for the purpose of concluding or fulfilling a contract.

If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of the DSGVO and – after successful identification – you have the following rights against us:

1. Right of information

You can request confirmation from our company as to whether we process personal data relating to you.

If such a processing is present, you can, in accordance with the DSGVO, request information from us on a variety of matters such as

(1) the purposes for which your personal data are processed

(2) the categories of personal data which are processed;

(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data has been or will be disclosed;

(4) the planned duration of the storage of your personal data or, if specific details cannot be provided, criteria for determining the storage period;

(5) the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of your personal data, a right to limit processing by our company or a right to object to such processing;

(6) the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;

(7) all available information on the origin of your personal data, unless your personal data was collected from yourself;

(8) the existence of an automated decision making process, including profiling in accordance with Art. 22, paras. 1 and 4 DPA and – at least in these cases – meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing on the data subject.

You have the right to request information as to whether the personal data concerning you are being transferred to a third country or to an international organization. In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 DPA in connection with the transfer.

 

2. Right of rectification

You have the right to have your personal data corrected and/or completed if they are incorrect or incomplete. We will make the correction without delay.

 

3. right to limit processing

Under certain conditions, you can request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.

(1) if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the personal data;

(2) if the processing is unlawful and you object to the deletion of your personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of your personal data;

(3) if we no longer need your personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims; or

(4) if you have lodged an objection to the processing and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of our group of companies and affiliated subsidiaries outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of your personal data has been restricted, we may process this data – apart from storing it – only with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person.

If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above-mentioned conditions, you will be informed by us before the restriction is lifted.

 

4. Right of deletion

You can demand that we delete your personal data immediately and we are then obliged to delete this data immediately if one of the following reasons applies:

(1) Your personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;

(2) you revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO and there is no other legal basis for the processing.

(3) You lodge an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO and there are no legitimate reasons for the processing, or you lodge an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 2 DSGVO.

(4) The personal data concerning you have been processed unlawfully.

(5) The deletion of personal data concerning you is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.

If we have made your personal data public and we are obliged to delete it pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 DSGVO, we must take reasonable measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other companies processing your personal data that you have requested them to delete all links to your personal data (as well as all copies thereof) (“right to be forgotten”).

The right of cancellation does not apply insofar as the processing is necessary

(1) to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;

(2) to comply with a legal obligation requiring processing under Union or national law to which the controller is subject or to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

(3) for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Article 9 (2) lit. h and i and Article 9 (3) DSGVO, or

(4) to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

 

5. Right to information of third parties by our company

If you have asserted the right to correction, deletion or restriction of processing against our company, we are obliged to notify all recipients to whom we have disclosed your personal data of this correction, deletion or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. You also have the right to be informed by us about these recipients.

 

6. Right to data transferability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to have this data communicated to another person in charge without interference from the person in charge to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that

(1) the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DSGVO and

(2) the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to obtain that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to data transferability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

 

7. Right of objection


You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you that is carried out pursuant to art. 6, paragraph 1, letter e or f of the DPA; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

In this case, we will no longer process the personal data concerning you, unless there are compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection and outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for the purposes of direct marketing, we will no longer process your personal data for those purposes.

 

8. Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law


You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. Revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the processing that has taken place on the basis of your consent until revocation.

 

9. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – which has legal effect on you or which significantly affects you in a similar way.

This shall not apply if the decision

(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and us,

(2) is authorised by Union law or the law of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject and that law contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests; or

(3) with your express consent.

 

With regard to the cases mentioned in (1) and (3), the responsible person shall take reasonable measures to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from our company to present his or her own point of view and to challenge the decision.

 

10. right to appeal to the supervisory authority


Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you are resident, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you is in breach of the DPA. The names and contact details of the competent supervisory authorities in the European Union can be found at http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/article-29/structure/data-protection-authorities/index_en.htm.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Art. 78 DSGVO.

 

Protecting the information you give us or that we receive about you is a priority for us. We take appropriate security measures to protect your information from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction. ProjectTogether has taken measures to ensure the ongoing confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of systems and services that process personal data and will restore the availability of and access to information in a timely manner in the event of a physical or technical incident.

We reserve the right to update this privacy policy from time to time. In the event that we make material changes that limit your rights or ProjectTogether’s obligations under this Privacy Policy, we will post a prominent notice in this section of the Privacy Policy informing users when it is updated.
