This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation
about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator Transformative Techniologies PCC,
info[at]transformative-technologies.com (thereafter website operator).

The website operator takes your data protection very seriously and treats your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal regulations.

Keep in mind that data transmission over the Internet can be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection against access by third parties is not possible.

Access data

The website operator or page provider collects data about access to the page and saves it as “server log files”. The following data is logged in this way:

  • Visited Website
  • Time at time of access
  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source/reference from which you accessed the page
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • IP address used

The data collected is used solely for statistical evaluations and to improve the website. However, the website operator reserves the right to subsequently
check the server log files if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

Handling of personal data

The website operator only collects, uses and passes on your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.

Personal data is all information that serves to determine your person and which can be traced back to you – for example your name, your e-mail address and telephone number.

Handling of contact data

If you get in touch with the website operator or the persons organizationally connected to him through the contact options offered, your details will be
stored so that they can be used for processing and responding to your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Dealing with comments and contributions

If you leave a message or comment here, your IP address and the name and e-mail address associated with your user account will be stored. This serves the identification of the author and the security of the website operator: if your text violates the law, he wants to be able to trace your identity.

Rights of the user: information, correction and deletion

Upon your request, you as a user will receive free information about which personal data about you has been stored. Unless your request conflicts with a
legal obligation to store data (e.g. data retention), you have a right to have incorrect data corrected and your personal data blocked or deleted.

Comments

When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.

Media

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
