In the following, the term "**user**" refers to everyone registered in the Global S4D Community Network. **(2) Personal data collected** The GS4DC Network has been designed to minimize the amount of personal data to be collected, processed or used.

In addition, all data are processed that usually arise in the context of a community platform. The personal data may not be used for further purposes, in particular not for commercial inquiries or mailings.Your personal data will not be used by us for automated decision-making or profiling. In addition, on a voluntary basis, you can make further personal details statements accessible to other users. **(4) Legal basis for the processing of your personal data** The processing of the first name, name, E-Mail address, gender, country, age, S4D background, motivation, years of experience, username and password of the user for the purpose of creating his or her profile as well as to send him or her e-mails to notify him or her when creating an account on the GS4DC Network or when using the "Forgot your password" function is necessary for us to perform our contractual obligations with regard to the contract concluded with the user for the use of the GS4DC Network (Art. 6(1) lit. b) of the GDPR).

Every user can send messages to, and receive messages from, other users. Messages sent / received are stored under "Messages", but you may delete them at any time, and only you and the sender or recipient can view them. **(6) Recipients of your personal data and third country data transfers** We use the Social Network Open Source Software "Humhub", a service from Humhub GmbH& Co.KG. This service provider processes your personal data when using this website. It is bound by our instructions and instructed in writing. The data processing by this service provider takes place within the framework of the legal provisions of data protection law of the European Union, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation ("**GDPR**").

Except for the contact email, you can do searches for all data. Of course, the search results depend on what the other users have chosen to render visible. Your data is not transferred to other third parties. Third parties such as users of Internet search engines may therefore not access your personal data by using such Internet search engine. Apart from the above where personal data is shared with third party service providers, who will process it on our behalf for the purposes listed, personal data may be shared with government authorities and/or law enforcement officials if required for the purposes above, if mandated by law or if required for the legal protection of our legitimate interests in compliance with applicable laws. Where information is transferred outside the EEA, e.g. to a vendor in a country that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the EU-Commission, data is adequately protected by EU-Commission approved standard contractual clauses (see at [https://commission.europa.eu/publications/standard-contractual-clauses-international-transfers_en](https://commission.europa.eu/publications/standard-contractual-clauses-international-transfers_en) for further information).  **(7) Cookies and Webanalysis technology** The GS4DC Network uses certain cookies that are technically necessary to provide you with the Service. This cookie can be deleted in your browser settings. Furthermore, the following technically necessary cookies are used: * PHPSESSID: Current Session (Login) - Technically required cookie that contains the session identifier and is used to recognise the user * _csrf - Protects against "Cross-Site Request Forgery" attacks, where a user unknowingly performs an action within an application * language - This cookie permanently stores the language setting selected * RichTextEditor.backup - Text editor support The GS4DC Network also uses certain functional cookies.

The data may subsequently no longer be called up. Due to the data stored in the cache, the user data may still be accessible for a short period after deactivating the account. When you have deleted your account, except where there is a legal obligation to archive such data for a certain period of time, your personal data will be irretrievably deleted, and forum entries and personal messages will be made anonymous so that they can no longer be assigned to you. This is done, for example, to prevent the course of a discussion from being interrupted. **(9) Amendments to the privacy policy** The contents and functions of the GS4DC Network are constantly being developed and improved. This can cause the need to arise for an amendment of this privacy policy. Registered users will be informed about changes when logging in. Where new personal data processing operations require the consent of the user, such consent will be asked for when logging in. **(10) Right to information and contact** You have the right to access your personal data stored by us at any time.

Furthermore, you have a right to object to the further processing of your data and the right to receive your data in electronic form.
