We are delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of AcademicFish. The use of AcademicFish is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our application or website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to AcademicFish.
As the controller, AcademicFish has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.
The data protection declaration of AcademicFish is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners.
2. The controller
Controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable in Member states of the European Union and other provisions related to data protection is:
By means of a cookie, the application and website can be optimised with the user in mind. Cookies allow us to recognize our users. The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
4. Collection of general data and information
The website of AcademicFish collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files.
When using these general data and information, AcademicFish does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content correctly, (2) optimise the content as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack.
Therefore, AcademicFish analyses anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process.
5. Registration on our website
The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for his own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more processors that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller.
By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address – assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject – date, and time of the registration are also stored. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.
6. Subscription to our newsletters
On the website of AcademicFish, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise’s newsletter. The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.
During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP). The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter.
7. Contact possibility via the website
AcademicFish contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.
8. Rights of the data subject
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller free information about his or her personal data stored at any time and a copy of this information.
If a data subject wishes to avail himself of this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of AcademicFish.
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
