We respect your right to privacy and collect, process and store personal data only as permitted by law or if you have given us your consent to do so.
The personal data we collect are limited to information regarding our relationship with you. This may include contact information as well as information relating to projects, events or to your use of our website.

In general, we collect data when you apply for a grant; when you visit our website; when you communicate with us directly; when you provide personal data for other purposes; or when you apply for a job with us. In all cases, we process your data only for a specific purpose, and that purpose is known to you.

Data Transmission: We only pass your data on to third parties with your consent or if we are authorized by law to do so. When data are transmitted abroad, we comply with the relevant legal provisions.

Data Retention: We retain your data as long as necessary for our relationship with you, or as long as we have a legitimate interest in continuing to store the information. We delete your personal data in all other cases, except when continued storage is required under the law (for example, we are legally obligated to retain documents such as contracts and invoices for a period of 10 years).

Data processed in connection with your use of this website: When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar information. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions about your person. This information is technically necessary to correctly deliver the contents of websites requested by you and is mandatory when using the internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.

Data security / SSL encryption: To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Use of Google Analytics: This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (following: Google). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these web pages, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from 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. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics.
In addition, or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can disable tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking here. This will install an opt-out cookie on your device. This prevents Google Analytics from tracking this website and this browser in the future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

Your rights concerning your personal data: You are entitled to request information about your stored data. You may request that your personal data be corrected, supplemented, blocked or deleted. If you have consented to the processing of your data, you may revoke that consent at any time for the future. You may do so vial letter or e-mail.
