Imprint and Data Protection
WELCOME TO THE AI GUILD
We are delighted that you are visiting our website and would like to thank you for your interest in the AI Guild, an association of individuals.
The imprint and data protection statement to the website of The Guild under https://theguild.ai as well as all sites and profiles of The Guild whose imprints and data protection statements refer to this page (https://theguild.ai/data-protection). For all external websites that are e.g. linked from this page, corresponding data protection and privacy statements apply. The Guild collects and processes all data on its websites solely according to current regulations and laws, especially those defined in the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, 2016/679).
THE GUILD RESPECTS YOUR PRIVACY
We take the protection of personal information seriously. Protecting your privacy when processing personal data and the security of all information is an important matter for us, which we observe in our processes. We treat personal information collected during your visit to our website confidentially and only use it in accordance with legal regulations.
Our web pages may contain links to third-party providers to which this statement on data protection does not apply. We have no influence on whether the administrators of these web pages maintain and uphold the relevant data protection regulations.
Personal data is information that can be used to learn about your identity. This includes e.g. your name, email, phone number, internet profiles. Information that cannot be associated with your identity, such as the number of users on a website, is not considered personal data.
OBTAINING, SAVING AND PROCESSING PERSONAL DATA
Whenever you visit our website, we save the name of your internet service provider, the browser type used, the website from which you visit ours, the web pages that you visit while on our website and the date and duration of your visit. No other personal information is stored. You can therefore use our website without having to disclose your identity.
When you visit special areas of our website or participate in certain campaigns, additional data may be collected and saved. Personal data may need to be entered in order to participate in a survey, forward an inquiry, or process a contract.
Specifying personal data is voluntary. When you submit a query using one of our contact forms or via e-mail, we save the data that you provide about yourself in order to facilitate individual communication with you and to process your query.
Some campaigns or promotions, such as those that access specific information, require you to make several data entries. Entry fields that must be completed are designated with an asterisk (*). Additional information that has not been highlighted as mandatory is optional and provided voluntarily.
USE AND DISSEMINATION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION, THE PROCESSING PURPOSE AND LEGAL BASIS
We use your personal data to technically manage our websites, customers, and marketing to the extent required for each specific case only. We will never transmit your data to third parties outside the AI Guild without your consent, especially with regard to marketing purposes.
We will transmit your data to authorities entitled to request such information to the extent that this is required by law or has been mandated by a court order.
So that our operations are correctly and appropriately managed, carefully selected members from The AI Guild also have access to your data. The data cannot be used by these members for their own purposes.
Anyone tasked shall undertake to uphold confidentiality and data secrecy. Moreover, an acceptable level of data protection is guaranteed at all times.
Information about cookies:
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your device when visiting a web page to help identify your device in the process. Cookies are used to store information when you visit different pages of a website or when you return to a website. Cookies do not contain any personal information and cannot execute any programs that could activate a virus.
Cookies of this category are stored on the device of the visitor so that the website can function as intended.
Cookies of this category are used to collect statistics on visitors to the website to improve the experience of the visit. Data collected is used internally and is not transferred to third parties.
Internet browsers are typically configured to automatically accept cookies. However, you can deactivate the function to automatically save cookies or configure your Internet browser so that it notifies you accordingly as soon as cookies are sent.
We employ the services of Webtrends Inc., 851 SW 6th Avenue, Portland, Oregon 97204, USA (www.webtrends.com) to carry out statistical evaluations. A U.S.-based company, Webtrends, has signed the EU/US data protection shield to ensure a level of data protection similar to that common in Europe.
Collected data is used to create anonymous usage profiles that serve as the basis for web statistics. However, individual users are not personally identified, nor is the data collated with other data.
You can prevent data from being collected and saved at any time by changing the settings of your Internet browser. This setting will also be recognized during any subsequent visits. For this purpose, access your browser’s settings section and configure the browser to block or reject third-party cookies.
IP addresses are fully anonymized before we are able to view the collated data via the PIWIK Suite. It is not possible to reverse the anonymization of the IP addresses or match up the IP addresses with the collated data.
We use this information to evaluate the behavior of visitors to our website, create corresponding reports, and ultimately to improve the website experience for our website visitors. PIWIK will not pass this information on to third parties or use it for marketing or promotional purposes of any kind.
We implement technical and organizational security measures to protect the information collected from you and managed by us against tampering, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorized persons, as well as unauthorized disclosure. Only a few authorized individuals have access to your data.
As a rule, our website data and the information you send to our website are transferred in unencrypted format. Consequently, we cannot rule out that third parties may intercept and view and/or directly access the data transferred.
We ask that you take this aspect into account when deciding on whether and to what extent you are willing to transmit data to us over the Internet. On our portals that require registration and user login information, we use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption for data transmission wherever possible.
We are continuously improving and adapting our security measures to keep up with technological developments.
We would also like to use your data to inform you about our products and, where applicable, to ask you about them. Naturally, participation in such initiatives is voluntary on your part. If you do not consent to this, you can send us a message at any time requesting that we block and/or delete these details.
Sending an email to the address listed in the legal notice is sufficient for this purpose.
INFORMATION, CORRECTION, DELETION, PROCESSING RESTRICTION, AND OBJECTION
You have the right to obtain information on your data in written or electronic form. Furthermore, you have the right at all times to have any personal data blocked or deleted, you have the right to object to the processing of data and you also have the right to have incorrect data rectified.
(Please note: Whenever country-specific, legal retention periods are to take effect, then the data/documentation will be blocked prior to deletion for a period laid down by the particular country.)
RIGHT OF APPEAL TO A SUPERVISORY AUTHORITY
Should the processing of your data contravene applicable law, you have the right to lodge a complaint with supervisory authority.
