General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR)
The entity assuming the role of data processing and controller for the purpose of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable in Member states of the European Union and other provisions related to data protection is:
Hochschule Karlsruhe Technik und Wirstchaft (HsKA) & Centro Tecnológico del Mueble y la Madera de la Región de Murcia (CETEM)
The project website TOURINGS collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, TOURINGS does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, TOURINGS analyses anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
Our main policy and procedure document for data protection does meet the standards and requirements of the EU GDPR. Accountability and governance measures are in place to ensure that we understand and adequately disseminate and evidence our obligations and responsibilities with a dedicated focus on privacy by design and the rights of individuals.
The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. of GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favour of the well-being of all our consortium, employees and the shareholders.
