Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your personal data is of major importance for the International Centre for Innovation in Education (ICIE). In accordance to the GDPR, the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG), this privacy policy will inform you about the processing of your personal data and/ or submitted information and documents when using this website.
 
The International Centre for Innovation in Education (ICIE) offers a number of websites, including this website, to introduce its international network, events, projects, conferences, capacity building programmes, publications, and journal.
 
The GDPR, the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), as well as further European and German regulations and statutes form the legal basis for the processing of personal/and or institutional data.
 
In reference to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), when you visit this website, your privacy is important to us. Access to your personal data is subject to strict security controls and we will not share it with third parties.
 
All personal data received and stored in the website will be used only in communication with you relating to the ICIE's fields of work, activities, conferences, workshops, publications, journal, and educational/scientific meetings.
 
The ICIE’s General Director, Director, and only designated officials in charge of the International Centre for Innovation in Education (ICIE) have access to your data, which is contained in the website database. Your submitted information, in the conference website, and the journal website, includes: Name, address, e-Mail, and other information relating to your submission.

The personal data collected by the website is stored no longer than is necessary for the performance of the purpose for which it was collected (e.g., registration for the conference, submitting your abstracts, registration for capacity building programmes, uploading your research papers and presentations, accessing the ICIE’s publications and journals). If this purpose no longer exists, we will delete or anonymize the data insofar as there are no legitimate reasons or obligations preventing this (e.g., tax regulations). In the latter case, data is only processed to a limited extent, i.e., only to comply with the above mentioned reason or obligation to store data, and also only with consent for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal rights, for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of an important public interest of Germany, the European Union (EU) or an EU member state. In the case of an obligation to store data, we shall erase or anonymize the data following certain expiry of the legitimate reason or obligation to store the data.
 
If you register for an event (e.g., the international ICIE annual conference, capacity building conferences and prorammes, distribution of IJTDC journal) we use the data stored in the website database to register you for this event and to hold the event. The data transmitted during registration for an event is required for the preparation and fulfillment of a contractual relationship (event participation). The legal basis for the processing of your data is therefore Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 b) GDPR; and Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 c) GDPR.
 
In addition, I have to inform you that this website uses cookies. By continuing to use this website, you agree to their use. Cookies are small data packages generated by the Web server and stored on your computer’s hard drive during communication between your computer and the Web server. A distinction is made between so-called session cookies, which serve merely to enable the functionality of the website and are immediately deleted when the browser is closed, and so-called persistent cookies, which are stored and used for further sessions. The website uses both types of cookie. The legal basis regarding the processing of your data is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 a) GDPR.
 
You can exercise your right to reject cookies at any time. Regardless of the other possibilities to prevent cookies, you can achieve this by setting your browser so that it does not accept any cookies or always asks for your approval before placing a cookie. Please refer to the Help function of your browser for more details on this. If you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use all features of the website.
 
These descriptions also inform you how to prevent persistent cookies.
 
We undertake technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data against unintentional or unlawful erasure, alteration or loss, and against unauthorized disclosure or unauthorized access.
 
This privacy policy & data protection corresponds to the date stated below. We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy. We would therefore ask you to regularly consult our privacy policy in order to be informed about any possible changes.
