Information about data protection
We take the protection of personal data very seriously. We want you to know when we store data, which types of data are stored and how it is used. We comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure our compliance and the compliance of external service providers with the data protection regulation.
This website uses SSL – that is, TLS encryption – to protect the transfer of personal data and other confidential information (for example, orders or enquiries sent to the controller). A connection is encrypted if you see the character sequence 'https://' and the padlock icon in your browser's address bar.

III. Definition of terms
Personal data refers to any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter: ‘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 to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller.
Processing is any operation or set of operations performed on personal data or on sets of personal data – whether or not by automated 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, deletion or destruction.
Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting its processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
Controller or data processing controller
Controller or data processing controller means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or 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 Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities that may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
Consent of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
IV. General information on data processingScope of processing of personal data
We process personal data concerning our users exclusively to the extent required to provide a functioning website, as well as our content and services. Ordinarily, we will only process the personal data of our users after obtaining their consent. An exception to this rule is where obtaining prior consent is factually impossible and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
Legal grounds for the processing of personal data
Where we obtain consent from the data subject for the processing of personal data, the legal grounds are set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Where personal data is processed for the performance of a contract in which the data subject is a contractual partner, the legal grounds are set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (b) of the GDPR. This also applies to processing that is necessary for pre-contractual measures.
Where personal data is processed for compliance with a legal obligation to which our project is subject, the legal grounds are set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (c) of the GDPR.
Where processing of personal data is necessary for the protection of vital interests of the data subject or another natural person, the legal grounds are set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (d) of the GDPR.
Where processing is necessary for the legitimate interests of our project or a third party, and where the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the first interests, the legal grounds are set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (f) of the GDPR.
Data deletion and duration of data storage
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. In addition, storage takes place if authorised by Union or Member State directives, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data shall also take place when a storage period stipulated by one of the above standards comes to an end, except where it is necessary to continue storing the data to enter into or perform a contract.
Our system automatically collects data and information from the accessing computer system each time our website is visited.
The following data is collected in this context:
- Information about the browser type and version
- The user’s operating system
- The user’s Internet Service Provider
- The user’s IP address
- The date and time of access
- Referrer website(s)
- Websites accessed by the user from our website
The data is also stored in log files kept on our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data concerning the user.Legal grounds for data processing
The legal grounds for temporary storage of the data and log files are set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Purpose of data processing
Temporary storage of the IP address by our system is necessary to deliver the website to the computer of the user. For this purpose, the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.
Storage in log files takes place to ensure functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimise the website and to ensure security of our Information Technology systems. Data analysis for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.
The euROBIN website collects a variety of general data and information each time it is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in server log files. The data and information collected include the (1) browser types and versions; (2) the operating system used by the accessing system; (3) the website from which the accessing system arrives on our website (the referrer); (4) the sub-pages visited by the accessing system; (5) the date and time of accessing our website; (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address); (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that is used to protect against risks in the case of attacks on our Information Technology systems.
The euROBIN partners do not draw any conclusions about the identity of the data subject during use of this general data and information. Instead, this information is necessary to (1) deliver the contents of our website in their correct form; to (2) optimise the contents of our website and promote it; to (3) guarantee the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and equipment used for our website; and to (4) provide the information necessary for law enforcement organisations to investigate cyber-attacks. This anonymous data and information is analysed by CREATE, firstly for statistical purposes, and secondly with the objective of increasing data protection and data security, and hence to achieve an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data contained in the server log files is stored separately from all other personal data concerning the data subject.
These purposes justify our legitimate interests in data processing according to Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (f) of the GDPR.Duration of storage
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of data collection for the provision of this website, this applies at the end of each session.
In the case of data stored in log files, this occurs after no longer than seven days. Further storage is possible; in these cases, the users’ IP addresses are deleted or pseudonymised to prevent any association with the accessing client.Right to objection and removal
The collection of data for the provision of our website and the storage of data in log files is crucial to operation of the website. Hence, users are not granted a right to object.
Our website uses technical cookies. Cookies are text files placed on the user’s computer system by a browser and stored there.
The following data can be transferred in this way:
- Search terms entered
- Frequency of page access
- Usage of website functions
Technical measures are implemented to pseudonymise the data collected from users in this way. It is therefore not possible to associate the data with the accessing user. The data is not stored together with other personal data concerning the user.
Section IX contains a detailed description of data processing in connection with the web analysis tools that we use.Legal basis for data processing
The legal grounds for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies are set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The legal grounds for the processing of personal data using cookies for analysis purposes with consent of the user are set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (a) of the GDPR.
Purpose of data processing
The user data collected with technically necessary cookies is not used to produce user profiles.
Analysis cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its contents. Through the use of analysis cookies, we find out how the website is used and are therefore able to optimise our service continuously. A more precise description is contained under Section IX of this document.
These purposes represent our legitimate interest in processing personal data according to Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (f) of the GDPR.Duration of storage; right to objection and removal
The browser or other software programs can be used to delete cookies that have already been placed at any time. This is possible with all standard Internet browsers. The data subject may not be able to use the full functionality of our website if cookies are disabled in the active Internet browser.
You can change the settings of your Internet browser to disable or restrict the transfer of cookies at any time. Cookies that have already been placed on your computer can be deleted at any time. This can take place automatically. Disabling cookies may prevent you from using the full functionality of our website.
VI. Contact form and email contactDescription and scope of data processing
Our website includes a contact form that can be used to make contact with us by electronic means. Where a data subject uses this option, the data entered in the input screen will be transferred to us and stored. This applies to the following data:
- First name
- Family name
- Email address
The following data is stored additionally when sending a message:
- IP address of the user
- Date and time of registration
Your consent for data processing will be obtained, and you will be referred to this Privacy Notice during the sending process.
Alternatively, it is possible to contact us using the email address provided. The personal data of the user transferred with the email will be stored in this case.
The data is not transferred to third parties in this context. The data is used exclusively for processing the correspondence.Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for processing of the data in the event that consent has been received from the user is set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The legal basis for processing of the data sent to us by email is set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (f) of the GDPR. Where email contact is established with the intention of entering into a contract, additional legal bases for the processing are set out in Art. 6, paragraph 1, part (b) of the GDPR.Purpose of data processing
We use the personal data you provide in the contact form exclusively to process your enquiry. In the case of contact by email, this represents our necessary, legitimate interest in data processing.
Any other personal data that is processed when you send us the contact form is used to prevent abuse of the contact form and to protect the security of our Information Technology systems.Duration of storage
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the purpose for which it was collected. For personal data entered in the input screen of the contact form and personal data sent to us by email, this is the case when correspondence with the user has come to an end. A conversation has come to an end when the circumstances indicate that the relevant matter has been dealt with definitively.
Any additional personal data collected during the sending process will be deleted after a maximum of seven days.Right to objection and removal
The user is entitled to revoke their consent to the processing of personal data at any time. The user may object to the processing of personal data at any time by contacting
All personal data stored in connection with contacting us will be deleted in this case.
VII. Web analysis with Matomo (formerly known as PIWIK)
Scope of the processing of personal data
We use the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) on our website to analyse the browsing behaviour of our users. The software places a cookie on the user’s computer (see above for more details of cookies). The following data will be saved if individual pages are visited on our website:
- Two bytes of the IP address of the user’s accessing system
- The accessed website
- The website from which the user reached the accessed website (referrer)
- The sub-pages accessed from the website
- How long the user remained on the website
- How often the website was accessed
- The software hereby runs exclusively on the servers for our website. The user’s personal data is only stored there. This data will not be forwarded to third parties.
The legal basis for processing the user’s personal data is point (f) of Art. 6 (1) of the GDPR.
Purpose of data processing
Processing the user’s personal data allows us to analyse the browsing behaviour of our users. By analysing the collected data we are able to compile information about how individual components of our website are being used. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its usability. Profiling does not take place. These purposes justify our legitimate interests in processing data pursuant to point (f) Art. 6 (1) of the GDPR. The anonymisation of the IP address takes due account of the user’s interest in the protection of their personal data.
Duration of storage
The software has been configured so that the IP addresses are not stored completely. Two bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g.: 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, the shortened IP address can no longer be assigned to the accessing computer.
Right to objection and removal (opt-out option)
We offer users of our website an opt-out option for the analysis procedure. To opt out, follow the link and deactivate the web analysis. As a result, a further cookie will be placed on your system that tells our system not to save the user’s data. If the user temporarily deletes the corresponding cookie from their own system, they have to reset the opt-out cookie.

VIII. Use of YouTube
The controller has integrated components of YouTube on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to upload video clips free of charge and that permits other users to view, rate and comment on these videos, also free of charge. YouTube allows the dissemination of all kinds of videos, so that full movies and TV programmes, as well as music videos, trailers and videos produced by users, are accessible on the Internet portal.
The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
With each visit to one of the individual pages of this Website that are operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the Information Technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding YouTube component.
The embedding code for YouTube videos was generated in advanced data privacy mode (for more detailed information in this regard, visit https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/171780).
Further information about YouTube is available at https://www.youtube.com/intl/en/yt/about/. During the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google acquire knowledge of the specific sub-page of our website that was visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is simultaneously logged into YouTube, YouTube recognises – with each visit to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video – which specific sub-page of our website the data subject visited. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and associated with the YouTube account of the data subject.
YouTube and Google will receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into YouTube when visiting our website; this occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such a transmission of information to YouTube and Google is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she can prevent this by logging off from their YouTube account before visiting our website.
IX. Use of Twitter
The controller has integrated Twitter components on this website. The Twitter plug-ins (tweet button) are identified by the Twitter logo (blue bird) on our website. For an overview of tweet buttons, click here: https://about.twitter.com/resources/buttons.
Twitter is a multilingual, publicly accessible microblogging service on which users can publish and disseminate so-called tweets, which are short messages of no more than 280 characters. These short messages are accessible to everyone, so also to persons not registered with Twitter. The tweets are also shown to the user’s Twitter ‘followers’. Followers are other Twitter users that have subscribed to the tweets by a certain user. In addition, Twitter enables the addition of hashtags, links or retweets to address a broad audience.
The operating company of Twitter is Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.
When you visit a page on our website containing this kind of plug-in, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter server. Twitter therefore receives information that you visited our page with your IP address. If you click on the Twitter ‘tweet button’ while logged into your Twitter account, you can link the content of our page to your Twitter profile. Twitter is therefore able to associate your Twitter account with your visit to our pages. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the pages, we are not aware of the content of the data transmitted or how Twitter uses it.
Please log out of your Twitter user account if you do not want Twitter to associate your visit to our website with your account.
With each visit to one of the individual pages on this website that are operated by the controller and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will be automatically prompted by the respective Twitter component to download a displayable Twitter component from Twitter. For further information on the Twitter buttons, visit https://publish.twitter.com/. In the course of this technical procedure, Twitter becomes aware of which sub-page of the website the data subject has visited. The purpose of integrating the Twitter component is to enable our users to disseminate the content of the web page, to publicise the web page in the digital world and to increase our visitor numbers.
Where the data subject is simultaneously logged onto Twitter, Twitter will recognise (for the duration of the visit to our website) each individual sub-page that the data subject visits while accessing our website. This information is collected by the Twitter component and associated with the Twitter account of the data subject. Where the data subject clicks on one of the twitter buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transmitted in this way will be associated with the Twitter user account of the data subject and will be stored and processed by Twitter.
The Twitter component will also inform Twitter if the data subject has visited our website, while simultaneously logged into their Twitter account; this takes place regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks on the Twitter component. If such a transmission of information to Twitter is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she can prevent this by logging off from their Twitter account before visiting our website.
The applicable Twitter privacy policies can be accessed at: https://twitter.com/privacy.
X. Use of LinkedIn
The controller has integrated components supplied by the LinkedIn Corporation into this website. LinkedIn is a web-based social network that enables users with existing business contacts to connect and to make new business contacts. Over 400 million registered people in more than 200 countries use LinkedIn. Thus, LinkedIn is currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.
With each access to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to download a displayable representation of the corresponding LinkedIn component. Further information about the LinkedIn plug-in may be accessed at https://developer.linkedin.com/plugins. During the course of this technical procedure, LinkedIn gains knowledge of what specific sub-page(s) of our website was/were visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time, LinkedIn detects every access to our website by the data subject, and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site, which specific sub-page(s) of our Internet page was/were visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the LinkedIn component and associated with the LinkedIn account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the LinkedIn buttons integrated on our website, then LinkedIn associates this information with the personal LinkedIn user account of the data subject and stores this personal data.
LinkedIn receives information via the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited our website, provided that the data subject is logged in at LinkedIn at the time of the access to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the person clicks on the LinkedIn button or not. If such a transmission of information to LinkedIn is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their LinkedIn account before accessing our website.
XI. Data protection for applications and during the application process
The controller collects and processes applicants’ personal data for the purpose of administering the application process. This processing might also be performed electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website.

Where processing of the personal data concerning you has been restricted, such personal data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
Where you have obtained restriction of processing under the conditions set out above, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction of processing is lifted.
Right to deletion
Obligation to delete
You have the right to request the controller to delete personal data concerning you without undue delay, and the controller will be obliged to delete personal data immediately where one of the following grounds applies:
- the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed;
- you withdraw consent on which the processing is based according to part (a) of Art. 6, paragraph 1, or part (a) of Art. 9, paragraph 2 of the GDPR, and there is no other legal basis for the processing;
- you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21, paragraph 1 of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21, paragraph 2 of the GDPR;

The right to deletion does not apply to the extent that processing is necessary:
- for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
- for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject or for the performance of tasks carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
- for reasons of public interest in the area of public health in accordance with parts (h) and (i) of Art. 9, paragraph 2 and Art. 9, paragraph 3 of the GDPR;
- for archiving purposes in the public interest, for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89, paragraph 1 of the GDPR, insofar as the rights referred to in section (a) are likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or
- for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Where you have exercised the right to correction, deletion or restriction of processing with the data controller, the data controller shall be obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you was disclosed of this correction or deletion of data or of the restriction of processing, except where compliance proves to be impossible or is associated with a disproportionate effort.
In addition, you are entitled to require that the data controller inform you about these recipients.Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to the controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and have the right to transfer that data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, where:
the processing is based on consent pursuant to part (a) of Article 6, paragraph 1 or part (a) of Article 9, paragraph 2 of the GDPR or in a contract pursuant to part (b) of Art. 6, paragraph 1 of the GDPR; and the processing is carried out by automated means.
In exercising your right to data portability, you have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. This must not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
The right to data portability does not apply to processing that is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Right to object
You have the right to object, at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you, which is based on parts (e) or (f) of Art. 6, paragraph 1 of the GDPR; this includes profiling based on those provisions.
The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you, unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Where personal data concerning you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object, at any time, to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing. This applies also to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.
Where you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for such purposes.
In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means that use technical specifications.
Where personal data is processed for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89, paragraph 1 of the GDPR, you have the right, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning you, except where the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

Right to withdraw consent pursuant to Art. 7, paragraph 3 of the GDPR
You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of data at any time, with future effect. In the event that you withdraw consent, we will delete the data concerned immediately, except where processing can be based on legal grounds that do not require consent. The withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing carried out prior to withdrawal of consent.
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects for you or similarly significantly affects you.
This does not apply if the decision:
- is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between you and the data controller;
- is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also contains suitable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests; or
- is based on your explicit consent.
However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Art 9, paragraph 1 of the GDPR, unless parts (a) or (g) of Art. 9, paragraph 2 of the GDPR applies and suitable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.
In the cases referred to in parts (1) and (3), the data controller is required to implement suitable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express your own point of view and to contest the decision.
Right to lodge a complaint with a 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 of your normal residence, you place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged is required to inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78.
