Gathering of personal information
Some of our visitors choose to interact with our website in ways that require us to collect information that can identify them. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask those who join the Ereignis Institute to provide an e-mail address where we can reach them.
We collect such personally-identifying information only insofar as it is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. You may refuse to supply information that can identify you; however, such refusal may prevent you from engaging in certain activities, such as studying with the Ereignis Institute.
All of the information that we collect will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.
Protection of personal information
We only disclose your personal data to members of our administration and outside stakeholders with a legitimate claim to such information. In each case we only disclose personally-identifying information when it is necessary to provide services to you and on the condition that your information is not in turn disclosed to others, or when we are required to do so by law. In some cases the data handler may be located outside of your home country. By using our website you consent to the transfer of such information to them.
We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
Use of personal information
We only use the information you provide in the relevant context. We do not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying information to anyone. Those who register as members on our website may occasionally receive e-mails from us about our services.
We would like to send you further information via e-mail, and will ask for your consent to do so. If you later decide that you do not wish to be contacted for this purpose, please click the unsubscribe link at the end of the e-mail.
