Data protection

Introduction

The protection of your personal data is of great importance to RED NOSES Clowndoctors International (RNI). RNI therefore strictly adheres to all legal provisions regulating the collection and processing of your personal data, in particular, the EU-wide General Data Protection Regulation (hereafter GDPR) as well as the most up-to-date Austrian data protection regulations. We would like to take this opportunity to inform you about the most important aspects of this new data privacy policy. We would also like to take this opportunity to address the scope and purpose of the personal data that we collect and process as well as the rights to which you are entitled as data subjects.

Data Privacy Policy

Personal Data

We are the controller[1] responsible for our website, which is currently accessible under https://www.rednoses.eu.

Every time you visit or use our homepage, we store the following data:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of query
  • Sub-pages that you visit on our website
  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system
  • Referrer URL

Purpose of Data Processing

Data processing is performed with the purpose of maintaining the integrity of our website. In particular, it enables swift error localization and related troubleshooting, while also allowing us to monitor traffic and, if necessary, make adjustments and improvements.

Legal Basis

Art 6(1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for data processing operations. Where the processing of personal data is concerned, our legitimate interest is to administer the necessary data security measures and maintain our web presence pursuant to Art 6(1) lit. f GDPR.

Storage Period

We assure you that your personal data (with the exception of the IP address) will only be stored for a short time and that it will be impossible to identify a person using this data because the attendant IP address will be deleted or, at the very least, anonymized.

Your computer’s IP address will only be stored for the duration of time that you use the website. Following this period of time, it will be deleted or abridged and thereby rendered anonymous. It may be necessary to store data for a longer period of time in cases where hacking or similar attacks are concerned in order to ensure the continued functionality and security of our web presence.  

Data Transmission

Your data will not be transmitted to third parties.

[1] Pursuant to Art 4 (7) GDPR.

Personal Data

We use "cookies" in order to improve and optimize our website for you and to provide insight into visitor statistics. The use and design of cookies also strictly adheres to European and Austrian legal provisions.[2]

Purpose of Data Processing

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses the above mentioned cookies, which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how visitors use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States . Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

You can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Please note that this website initializes Google Analytics with the setting "anonymizeIp".This guarantees anonymized data collection by masking the last part of your IP address. Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or at http://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/analytics/privacyoverview.html 

Legal Basis

Once again, our legitimate interest pursuant to Art 6(1) lit. f GDPR regarding online service offerings and, if necessary, receipt/revocation of consent serves as the legal basis for data processing operations.

Revocation of Consent

You can exercise your right to object and revoke your consent at any time without providing a reason by e-mailing office@rednoses.eu. In cases where data processing is based solely on your consent and we are not legally obliged to preserve the data, the data in question will be irrevocably deleted following receipt of your revocation.

Data Transmission

Your data will not be transmitted to third parties (excluding the circumstances detailed above).

 [2] Art 5(3) ePrivacy Directive; § 96(3) Telecommunications Act 2003 (TKG).

In addition to Google Analytics, the RNI website (https://www.rednoses.eu) includes other social media applications that enable content sharing with others. When you use these applications, your browser will automatically connect to the respective social network, and, if you have visited these platforms before, your browser will automatically transmit your IP address and other information, such as cookies. As far as is possible, RNI prefers to avoid this kind of data transmission until such time as users actually join one of the platforms. By clicking on the relevant symbol, you are indicating that you are ready to communicate with the selected platform and transmit your personal data, such as your IP address, to this social network. For more information, please refer to the particular terms and conditions of each network.

The following social networks are currently in rotation at RNI:

The individual data privacy notices for each social network are accessible via external links over which RNI exercises no content control and assumes no responsibility.

Google Fonts & MyFonts

To ensure that fonts used on this website are uniform, this website uses „Google Fonts“ (Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) and „Butterfly Ball“ (My Fonts Inc., 600 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, MA 01801, USA).

When you access a page on our website, your browser will load the required web fonts from Google and MyFonts into your browser cache to correctly display text and fonts.

To do this, the browser you use will have to establish a connection with Google’s and MyFonts' servers. As a result, Google and MyFonts will learn that your IP address was used to access our website. The use of web fonts from Google & MyFonts are on our interest in presenting our online content in a uniform and appealing way. According to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, this is a legitimate interest.

If your browser should not support the selected web fonts, a standard font installed on your computer will be used.

For more information on Google Web Fonts, please follow this link: https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and consult Google’s Data Privacy Declaration under: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

Google Maps

Via an API, this website uses the mapping service Google Maps. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

To enable the use of the Google Maps features, your IP address must be stored. As a rule, this information is transferred to one of Google’s servers in the United States, where it is archived. The operator of this website has no control over the data transfer.

We use Google Maps to present our online content in an appealing manner and to make the locations disclosed on our website easy to find. This constitutes a legitimate interest as defined in Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR.

For more information on the handling of user data, please review Google’s Data Privacy Declaration under: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

Use of YouTube videos

We use embedded YouTube videos in the extended data protection mode. YouTube is a service from Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. YouTube makes this extended data protection mode available, thereby ensuring that YouTube does not save any cookies with personal data on your computer. The IP address is transferred when calling up the website and embedding the video. This address cannot be correlated, provided you have not logged into YouTube or another Google service prior to calling up the site or you are not permanently logged in. As soon as you click on an embedded video to start playback, the extended data protection mode means that YouTube only saves cookies on your computer that contain no personally identifiable data. These cookies can be prevented with the relevant browser settings and extensions (source: YouTube “Activate the extended data protection mode for embedded videos”).

Further information on embedding YouTube videos can be found at YouTube information page

We employ technical and organizational security measures to protect your data from manipulation, damage, and destruction as well as unauthorized third party access. Our security measures are continuously improved in accordance with the technical advances on the Internet. All data is stored on servers that operate with a high level of security that protects against unauthorized access and misuse.

Data is stored and secured on our servers in Austria.
