Privacy Policy

Green PE takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We strictly adhere to the data protection laws, in particular to the basic European General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR). Personal data is collected on this website only to the technically necessary extent. In no case we sell the collected data or pass them on to third parties for other reasons.
The following privacy policy gives you an overview of how we guarantee this protection and what kind of data is collected for what purpose.

Data collection during the visit on our website

This website is hosted by Webgo and maintained with the WordPress content management system.
When you visit a Webgo website, the Webgo servers automatically store the information that the browser sends when you visit that page. The information includes the call (request), the IP address, the browser type and language as well as the date and time of the call.
The information is used to analyse and maintain the technical operation of the Webgo servers and the network and to combat abuse. You can read here which data Webgo collects and how they are processed: https://www.webgo.de/datenschutz/
Web pages hosted by Webgo are delivered TLS-encrypted (HTTPS). You can recognize the secure connection by the small green lock symbol in the address line of your web browser.

Agreement for contract data processing

We have concluded an agreement for contract data processing with Webgo GmbH. This ensures that our service provider complies with the strict requirements of German data protection law in all points when operating with user data. This also ensures that your data is only stored within the EU with a high level of protection. Your data will not be stored on servers outside the EU.

Cookies

As a rule, we do not use cookies on our websites. Only in exceptional cases are so-called session cookies used, which store data for technical session control in your browser’s memory. These data are not personal. Should we exceptionally have to store personal data in a cookie, we will obtain your express consent in advance. Furthermore, we would like to point out that browsers generally have functions for managing cookies.

External providers

On our website we use active JavaScript content and fonts, which can also come from external providers such as Google. By accessing our website, these providers may receive information about your visit to our website, for example by transmitting your IP address. You can prevent this transmission by installing a JavaScript blocker such as the browser plugin ‘NoScript’ or deactivating JavaScript in your browser. However, this can lead to functional restrictions.
We also include third-party content on our website, such as images, text and multimedia files from other websites. This always requires a transmission of your IP address to the providers of this content. We cannot make any statement about the use of this data. In particular, not about whether the data is also used for other purposes, such as profiling. Please refer to the relevant data protection information of the respective third party providers.
You can protect yourself against further prosecution by tracking pixels of these providers by disabling the acceptance of third-party cookies in your browser settings.

The newsletter subscription takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. After registration you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration or to cancel registration process. Therefore, you cannot be subscribed to our newsletter without you explicit permission. Subscriptions to the newsletter are logged by date, month, year in order to be able to prove the registration process in accordance with legal requirements. If you do not confirm the newsletter subscription, your email address will be deleted after one month. We use the ‘Newsletter plugin’ to store your email address. Newsletter plugin stores you email address only in our WordPress blog database and does not transfer any data to this site or to any services of our company. We use your email address only for the distribution of the Green PE newsletter and we will not forward it to third parties.
At the end of each newsletter you will find a link with which you can revoke your consent at any time and cancel the newsletter.

MailChimp
This website uses the services of MailChimp for the newsletter distribution. The provider is Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
MailChimp is a service that can be used to organise and analyse the distribution of newsletters, among other things. If you enter data for the purpose of newsletter subscription (e.g. email address), these are stored on the servers of MailChimp in the USA.
MailChimp is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. The “Privacy Shield” is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA to ensure compliance with European data protection standards in the USA.
When you open an email sent with MailChimp, a file contained in the email (so-called web beacon) connects to the MailChimp servers in the USA. This allows to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. They are used exclusively for statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients. We would like to point out that we do not make use of these analysis options.
If you do not want MailChimp to analyse your data, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in each newsletter.
The data will be processed on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time by cancelling the newsletter. The legality of the data processing processes already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data provided by you for the purpose of subscribing to our newsletter will be stored until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of MailChimp after you unsubscribe from the newsletter.
