General information

The site’s administrators take the protection of personal data seriously.

Personal data is any information that directly or indirectly identifies a natural person. It can for example, be a surname, forename, a postal address or an e-mail address, but also information on the user’s behaviour (Article 4, Para. 1 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)).

For this site, the person liable for the purposes of Article 4 (7) of the GDPR is the President of Eucor – The European Campus, Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Hans-Jochen Schiewer (postal address: University of Freiburg, Fahnenbergplatz, 79085 Freiburg, Germany, e-mail: info@eucor-uni.org).

Your rights

You have the following rights with respect to your personal data:

  • right to information,
  • right of rectification and erasure of data,
  • right to restrict data processing,
  • right to oppose data processing,
  • right to data portability.

You also have the right to dispute the processing of your personal data by us with the competent supervisory authority concerning your personal data.

In case of manifestly unfounded or excessive requests, we reserve the right to demand appropriate compensation. In any other case, the data is provided free of charge (Article 12 (5) of the GDPR).

In the event of doubt as to the identity of the person claiming the rights mentioned above, we may request any additional information necessary to confirm their identity (Article 12 (6) of the GDPR).

SSL/TLS encryption

For security reasons and in particular to protect any confidential information, such as certain requests that are addressed to us, this site uses SSL/TLS type encryption. When this encryption is active, the data transmitted by the user to our server cannot be read by any third party. An encrypted connection is recognised in particular by the presence of a small padlock and an address starting with “https://” and not “http://” in the address bar of the browser.

Server log files

The information automatically transmitted by your browser is automatically collected and stored by this site on the server in log files. These record:

  • the page visited on our domain;
  • the date and time of the request to the server;
  • the browser including the version number;
  • operating system used
  • the referral site (the site having, if applicable, redirected the user to this site);
  • ‘Hostname’ of the terminal used;
  • the anonymized IP address of the user.

This data is not cross-referenced with data from other sources. The legal basis for this processing is Article 6 (1) lit. b of the GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the purpose of fulfilling a contract or as part of pre-contractual measures.

Forms

Any data you provide to us through forms, including your contact information, is stored to process your request and for follow-up purposes. This data is not passed on to third parties without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in a form is carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (article 6, paragraph 1, lit. a of the GDPR). Your consent already given can be revoked at any time. For this purpose, an informal message sent by e-mail is sufficient. The legality of the processing of this data until its revocation is not affected by said revocation.

The data that you transmit to us via forms remains stored until you ask us to delete it, until you revoke your consent to its storage or until the need for data retention disappears. Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – are not affected.

Newsletter

If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on this site, you need to provide a valid e-mail address.

To send this newsletter, we use rapidmail, a certified German software publisher (headquarters: Augustinerplatz 2, 79098 Freiburg, Germany), whose practices comply with the GDPR. As part of the subscription to the newsletter, your data is transmitted to rapidmail GmbH. Rapidmail GmbH is prohibited from using your data for any purpose other than sending the newsletter. Sharing or assignment of your data is not allowed. The data transmitted as part of the subscription to the newsletter is stored on the rapidmail servers in Germany.

For analytical purposes, e-mails sent via rapidmail contain what is called a “tracking pixel”, which connects to the rapidmail servers when the e-mail is opened. This makes it possible to know if a newsletter has been opened. Rapidmail also records whether any links in the e-mail have been clicked and, if so, which ones. The service employs links for tracking and counting clicks. The data thus collected is anonymous. More information about rapidmail’s scanning features: https://de.rapidmail.wiki/kategorien/statistiken/ (German) / https://fr.rapidmail.wiki/article-categories/statistiques (French).

With rapidmail, we concluded a data processing agreement whereby rapidmail undertakes to protect the data of our subscribers and not to transmit it to third parties. This contract (in German) can be consulted via the following link: https://de.rapidmail.wiki/files/adv/muster-auftragsdatenverarbeitung.pdf.

You can withdraw your agreement concerning the storage of your data, your e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time. To this end, please send an e-mail to presse@eucor-uni.org or click on the unsubscribe link in each newsletter. Your data transmitted as part of the subscription of the newsletter will be deleted after unsubscription.

Matomo (formerly Piwik)

Our site uses Matomo, an open-source web analytics tool.

Matomo uses cookies. The information generated by the cookies concerning the use of our site is stored on our server. Before any backup, your IP address is made anonymous. Matomo’s cookies are likely to remain on your device until you delete them.

The placement of cookies by Matomo is based on article 6, paragraph 1, lit. f GDPR. As the administrators of this site, it is in our legitimate interest to be able to analyse the behaviour of the users (anonymised) in order to optimise the present site.

Certain features of this site may however be affected by a restriction or prohibition of the placement of cookies.

Here you can disable the recording and processing of your data. Your browser will then carry an exclusion cookie that prevents Matomo from tracking usage data. If you delete your cookies, this exclusion cookie will also be deleted. In this case, if you later come back to our site, the exclusion cookie will have to be generated again to disable the recording and processing of your data.
