2. Collection and processing of personal data

We primarily process the personal data that we receive in the course of our projects and business relationships with our dialog partners, customers and other business partners and other persons involved, or that we collect from their users when operating our websites and other applications.

To the extent permitted, we also take certain data from publicly accessible sources (e.g. press, Internet, commercial register). In addition to the data about you that you give us directly, these are categories of personal data that we receive about you from third parties, in particular information from public registers, information in connection with your professional functions and activities, information from the media and Internet about your person (if this is appropriate in the specific case, e.g. in the context of a job application, press releases, etc.). e.g. in the context of a job application, press review, etc.), your addresses and data in connection with the use of the website (e.g. IP address, MAC address of the smartphone or computer, details of your device and settings, cookies, date and time of visit, pages and content accessed, functions used, referring website, location details).


3. Purposes of data processing and legal basis

We use the personal data we collect primarily to process our dialogs and projects or to inform you about relevant topics and activities of the Risk Dialog Foundation.
In addition, we process personal data of you and other persons, to the extent permitted and deemed appropriate, also for offering, ensuring and further developing our offers, services and websites and other platforms on which we are present;
Insofar as you have given us consent to process your personal data for certain purposes (for example, when you register to receive newsletters), we process your personal data within the scope of and based on this consent, insofar as we have no other legal basis and we require such a basis. Consent given can be revoked at any time, but this has no effect on data processing that has already taken place.


4. Cookies / tracking and other technologies related to the use of our website

We typically use “cookies” and similar technologies on our websites to identify your browser or device. A cookie is a small file that is sent to your computer or automatically stored on your computer or mobile device by the web browser you use when you visit our website. This allows us to recognize you when you return to this website, even if we do not know who you are. In addition to cookies that are only used during a session and deleted after your website visit (“session cookies”), cookies can also be used to store user settings and other information for a certain period of time (e.g. two years) (“permanent cookies”). However, you can set your browser to reject cookies, store them for one session only, or otherwise delete them early. Most browsers are preset to accept cookies. We use persistent cookies to allow you to save user preferences (e.g., language). If you block cookies, you may not be able to use certain functionalities (such as language selection).
We also include visible and invisible image elements in our newsletters in some cases and where permitted, by retrieving these from our servers we can determine whether and when you have opened the email, so that we can also measure this and better understand how you use our offers and tailor them to you. You can block this in your email program; most are preset to do so.
By using our websites and agreeing to receive newsletters and other marketing emails, you consent to the use of these techniques. If you do not want this, then you must set your browser or email program accordingly.
