We handle your personal data securely and in accordance with the applicable data protection laws as well as the following data protection declaration.
Under the definition in German law (Section 3 Par. 1 of the Federal Data Protection Act), personal data means "any information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an indentified or identifiable individual (the data subject)." This includes all information that reveals something about a person. Information that cannot (or can only with a disproportionate amount of effort) be linked to an individual e.g. because pseudonyms or anonymization has been used, is not classified as personal data.
ECCHR collects and processes personal data connected with this website only for the purposes of facilitating use of the website and your contact preferences. Personal data is not used for any individual evaluations. We reserve the right to evaluate pseudonymous or anonymized datasets. These can be used for example to improve the website and for statistics (number of users, page views, etc.). These can also be used for purposes relating to system security.
