Data Protection Statement

Thank you for your interest in the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience. The use of the internet pages of the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience. By means of this data protection declaration, our program management would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.

As the controller, the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience management has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.

1. Definitions

The data protection declaration of the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

3. Cookies

The internet pages of the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser. Through the use of cookies, the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. We use the application Piwik to set these cookies. This application makes your browser set two ID’s (HTTP cookies) to differentiate between users. The IP address of users is used for the statistics, but right away cut to avoid the identification of the individual website visitor.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies.

Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers.

If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable. Furthermore you may adjust your browser not to set a cookie. In that case Piwik would save a Opt-out-Cookie, valid for two years (“piwik ignore”) and not report the visit of our website.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. You may object to your usage data being recorded by clicking on the link below to remove it. This stores a so-called opt-out cookie on your computer preventing your usage data being recorded.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience 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 the browser types and versions used, the operating system used by the accessing system, the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), the sub-websitesthe date and time of access to the Internet site, an Internet protocol address (IP address), the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and 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, the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to deliver the content of our website correctly, optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience analyzes 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.

5. Subscription to our newsletter

On the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to the newsletter.

On a regular basis, the Bernstein Network Computational Neuroscience informs about the news from the network via e-mail. The Bernstein Bulletin (henceforth referred to as 'newsletter') can only be received if the data subject has a valid e-mail address and subscribes to the newsletter.

If you wish to subscribe to the newsletter offered on our website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and to consent to receiving the newsletter.

To ensure that we act by mutual consent, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. In the course of this subscription, the potential recipient will be added to a mailing list. The user then receives a confirmation e-mail to confirm the registration legally. Only if this confirmation takes place, the address is taken up actively in the distribution list.

We use these data exclusively for mailing of the requested information.

Newsletter2Go is used as newsletter software. Your data will be transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH. Newsletter2Go is prohibited from selling your data and from using it for purposes other than sending newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a German, certified supplier, which was selected after the requirements of the data security regulation and the Federal Law for Data Protection.

Further information can be found here: https://www.newsletter2go.de/informationen-newsletter-empfaenger/

You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, e-mail address and their use to send the newsletter at any time, for example via the "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.

For this reason, we ask you to inform yourself about our data protection measures at regular intervals by inspecting our data protection declaration.

6. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage.

If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.

7. Social Media

We deliberately refrain from using plug-ins from social media companies. Our website links to our Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook pages without collecting personal data.

Legally binding is the German version.
