Cookies

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are placed and stored on a computer system via an Internet browser.

 

Many cookies contain a so-called ID. An ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized via a unique ID.

 

On our website, you can set which cookies you want to set by means of our cookie banner. Cookies that you accept there will be set and used based on your consent. Alternatively, you can deactivate the setting of cookies in your browser settings. You can also delete cookies that have already been set in your browser.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a service provided by Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). 

 

With Google Analytics, we recognize from which other website visitors come and how long they stay on a particular page on our website. We use this insight to improve the experience on our website. We use the anonymized version of Google Analytics. This version truncates IP addresses from EU countries as well as EEA member states so that IP addresses cannot be traced back to a specific person.

Our use of Google Analytics is based on your voluntary, explicit consent, which you can give via the cookie banner.

The privacy policy of Google Analytics can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy

Further information can also be found here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245 

 

Collection of general data and information

The website of the ReDI School collects a series of general data and information with each call. This general data and information are stored in the log files of the server. Collected can be:

 

  1. Browser types and versions used

  2. Operating system

  3. The website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (the so-called referrer)

  4. Sub websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website

  5. Date and time of access

  6. Internet protocol address (IP address)

  7. Internet service provider of the accessing system

  8. Other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

 

When using these general data and information, the ReDI School does not draw any conclusions about you. Rather, this information is required in order to:

  1. display the contents of our website correctly

  2. optimize the contents of our website as well as the advertising for the same

  3. ensure the long-term operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website

  4. provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber-attack

 

Therefore, the ReDI School analyzes these data and information on one hand, statistically, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data security of our organization, and ultimately ensuring an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

We only forward personal data if this is necessary for the execution of our service, for example, the forwarding of name lists for the use of external premises. We will inform you about this. The transfer of your personal data to other organizations or companies will only take place with your prior consent, or if it is necessary for the provision of services requested by you.

Binary Lights, as a contractor to ReDI School, is also required to comply with the GDPR.

 

Newsletters

When students graduate from our program we ask them if they want to receive news about upcoming events and offerings.

We also inform partners (companies that cooperate with us) at regular intervals by email newsletter about current developments and support opportunities.

The personal data requested for sending the newsletter is shown in the input mask. All information except for the email address is optional.

A confirmation email will be sent to the email address entered for the newsletter dispatch using the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation email serves to verify whether the owner of the email address has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.

 

The personal data collected in the context of a registration for the newsletter will be used exclusively for sending our newsletter. No personal data collected as part of the newsletter service is passed on to third parties. Recipients of newsletters can unsubscribe at any time.

 

For efficient newsletter dispatch, we use Mailchimp. Mailchimp is a service provided by The Rocket Science Group LLC, based in Georgia, USA.

Mailchimp collects the following information in connection with the newsletter:

Device information (IP address, operating system and other system information) of the device that opens the newsletter.

Information about the application you use to open the Mailchimp newsletter (browser ID and other Internet connection information)

Usage data about your interactions with the newsletter (which links you click on and at what date/time)

Deliverability of the newsletter

 

This information allows Mailchimp to improve and prevent abuse.

 

For more information about Mailchimp's privacy policy, please visit https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/#3._Privacy_for_Contacts.

 

The newsletters of the ReDI School contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in such emails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This enables statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, we can see if and when an email was opened (see Open Tracking) and which links located in the email were called (see Click Tracking).

 

Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

We store your personal data only as long as it is necessary to fulfill our services, legitimate interests and legal requirements.

 

In principle, we store personal data for the period specified below, unless further legal obligations prevent deletion:

 

  • Course participants: 24 months after completion of course

  • Volunteers:

    • 24 months after the last activity

    • Applications that don’t lead to any volunteering activity are anonymized after 12 months

Social media

We use social media for the following purposes:

We use these sites for the purpose of publishing our courses, events, and job postings.

 

The social media platforms described in more detail below collect data about your behavior and interests when you visit our websites, and in some cases provide us with an anonymized analysis of visitor groups and interactions. This processing of your data is based on our legitimate interest in better understanding our target groups pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

 

In addition, the data may be processed by the social media platforms for their own purposes for market research and advertising. Cookies may be stored on your computer to evaluate your usage behavior. Other data about your devices, Internet connection or location may also be collected and linked to your account if necessary.

 

A user profile may be created about you, even if you are not registered on the social media platforms or do not have an account. These profiles may be used to serve ads customized to you on various platforms. 

How the social media platforms use the data from the visit of the appearances for their own purposes, how long the social media platforms store this data is not clearly stated by the social media platforms and is not known to us beyond the processing mentioned above.

 

It may happen that your data is processed outside the European Union when you visit our social media sites. In particular, personal data may be transferred to the USA and processed there. For these cases, we have concluded standard contractual clauses with the providers, which have been drafted by the European Commission for these purposes.
