Anonymous Data Collection
You can visit the webpages of the GO FAIR initiative without telling us who you are. We only get to know the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you came to our website and which of our webpages you visit. This information will be used for statistical purposes. You as an individual customer remain anonymous.

Service Providers
We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our service (e.g. Implementation Networks coordination, outreach and linking, including but not limited to mailings and events organisation) to provide the service on our behalf, to perform service-related services or to assist us in analysing how our service is used.

These third parties have access to your Personal Data only to perform these tasks on our behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.

We may use third-party service providers to monitor and analyse the use of our service.

  • Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network.

You can opt-out of having made your activity on the service available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity.

External Links
In order to provide you with the best possible information, we offer links to third parties’ websites on our website. Whenever it is not obvious that these are external links we will provide an explicit notice. Our institutions cannot control the contents and design of third parties’ websites. Therefore, the guarantees given by this data protection statement do not apply to those websites.
Please note that the embedding of external content, such as videos from the video platform YouTube and Vimeo, can result in the use of trackers by other providers. You can find more information about this in the privacy policy of Google and Vimeo.

Use of Twitter Plugins
Our internet presence uses plugins of the social network Twitter. You can recognise these plugins by the Twitter logo on our website. When you visit our website the plugin will create a direct connection between your browser and the Twitter server. This tells Twitter that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click the “Like” button while you are logged into your Twitter account, you can link content on our pages to your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to match your visit on our pages to your user account. We wish to point out that we as the provider of this website have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or their usage by Twitter. You can find more information about this in the data privacy policy of Twitter. If you do not want Twitter to match your visit on our website to your Twitter user account, then please log out of your Twitter user account.

If you send us an e-mail, we will use your e-mail address only for corresponding with you. After the end of correspondence, your e-mail address will be deleted. It will not be used for other purposes or transmitted to third parties. We also advise you that unauthorised access and falsification are possible if e-mails are transmitted without encryption.
