Provision of the website and creation of log files

Every time you access a page of the scandria-corridor.eu website and every time you access a file, data concerning this process is saved in a protocol file. The following set of data is stored for each individual instance where something is accessed:

  • Name of the file accessed
  • IP address of the computer from which the request was sent
  • Date and time it was accessed
  • Amount of data transmitted
  • Notification of whether or not it was accessed successfully
  • Description of the type of browser and operating system used

This data is stored because this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services and, when necessary, this data can be used to investigate any crimes committed. In this respect, it is necessary to store this data for the protection of the entity responsible for processing.

There will be no analysis of the server log files related to specific individuals as long as there has been no willful destruction of data, tampering, manipulation, unauthorised access or unauthorised publishing of data. Data generally will not be forwarded to third parties, unless there is a legal obligation to forward the information or such forwarding is necessary for law enforcement purposes.

Option to object and erasure:
The collection of data in order to provide the website and the storage of data in log files constitutes a justified interest of the responsible entity and is absolutely necessary to the operation of the website. The user therefore has no right to object.

Contact form and e-mail contact

There is a contact form on the website that can be used to contact us electronically. If the user decides to take advantage of this option, the data entered into the form will be transmitted to us and stored. This data includes:

  • First and last name
  • E-mail address

The following data is also stored when the message is sent:

  • Date the form was sent
  • Time the form was sent

For the processing of data, reference is made to this data protection declaration within the context of this sending process.

The data is used exclusively to process the conversation.

Option to object and erasure:

Password-protected internal area (login area)

scandria-corridor.eu offers partners the opportunity to use a separate, password-protected internal area (login area).

User profiles for the login area will be generated by the responsible entity. They contain:

  • First and last name of the user
  • Login name of the user
  • E-mail of the user
  • First password of the user
  • Date of registration by the responsible
  • Date of the user’s last visit

The user data associated with use of the login area will be collected, stored, and processed for the purpose of combating misuse, resolving issues, and maintaining functionality. It will not be used for other purposes and the data will not be forwarded to third parties.

The data collected for the “Forgot User Name or Password” function will be used to resend the forgotten login data.

The user profiles for the login area will be deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for the purpose for which they were collected. The user’s data will therefore be stored for as long as the user profile is active.

Option to object and erasure:
The user has the right to withdraw permission to process and store their personal data collected in conjunction with their use of the login area at any time. The withdrawal must be submitted to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. In such cases, it will no longer be possible to use the login area.

Option to object and erasure:
The user has the right to withdraw permission to process and store their personal data collected in conjunction with their use of the login area at any time.

Use of cookies

Cookies are small files that make it possible to save specific information about the device on the user’s access device (PC, smartphone, etc.). One of their purposes is to make the website more user-friendly and thus serve the users (e.g. storage of login information). Another purpose is to collect statistical data on website use and analyse it for the purpose of improving the offering.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Cookies don’t damage your computer and don’t contain any viruses.

They can deactivate or limit the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in their web browser. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time.

Please note, however, that it may not be possible to use the website or it may be less convenient to use the website without cookies.
