You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.
This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
5. Use of Matomo
For the analysis of user behaviour on our project website we use the web analytics platform Matomo, yet without applying any tracking cookies. In addition, a part of the individual IP address is anonymised, so that direct user reference is not possible.

We aim to regularly inform you about the current developments of the alliance making use of the short news service Twitter Inc, 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103 U.S.A.for this purpose. Responsible for the data processing of persons living outside the United States is Twitter International Company, One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street, Dublin 2 D02 AX07, Ireland. Please note, that you use this service and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. share, rate).
Data processed by Twitter:
We have no influence neither on the type nor the scope of the data processed by Twitter. Furthermore, the type of data processing, the use of data or the transfer of data by Twitter cannot be affected. There are no effective means of control implemented.
By using Twitter, your personal data will be collected, transferred, stored, disclosed and used by Twitter Inc. and, in doing so, transferred to, stored and used in the United States, Ireland and any other country in which Twitter Inc. does business, regardless of your place of residence.
Twitter processes data that you voluntarily enter such as your name and user name, e-mail address, telephone number or the contacts in your address book when you upload or synchronize it. Twitter also evaluates the content you share to determine what topics you are interested in, stores and processes confidential messages that you send directly to other users, and can determine your location using GPS data, wireless network information, or your IP address to send you advertising or other content.
For evaluation purposes, Twitter Inc. may use analysis tools such as Twitter or Google Analytics. We have no influence on the use of such tools by Twitter Inc. and have not been informed about such potential use. If tools of this kind are used by Twitter Inc. for our account, we have neither commissioned Twitter to do so nor approved of this or supported it in any other way. Neither will the data obtained during the analysis be made available to us. Only certain, non-personal information about the tweet activity, such as the number of profile or link clicks through a particular tweet, can be viewed by us via your account. Furthermore, we have no way of preventing or disabling the use of such tools on your Twitter account.
Since Twitter Inc. is a non-European provider with a European branch only in Ireland, it is not bound by German data protection regulations. This concerns, for example, your rights to information, blocking or deletion of data or the possibility of using usage data for advertising purposes to contradict. You have the possibility to limit the processing of your data in the general settings of your Twitter account as well as in the section
"Privacy and Security". In addition, you can restrict Twitter access to contact and calendar data, photos, location data, etc. on mobile devices (smartphones, tablet computers) in the settings there. However, this is dependent on the operating system used.

Data processed by EURICE:
We may also process your personal data. Although we do not collect any data about your Twitter account ourselves, the data you enter into Twitter, in particular your user name and the content published under your account, will be processed by us to the extent that we re-tweet or reply to your tweets, if applicable, or write tweets that refer to your account. The data you freely publish and distribute on Twitter is thus included by us in and made accessible to your followers.
