We not only protect the climate but also your data. Find out how we process data here. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
Glacier Carbon Reduction GmbH (hereinafter "Glacier" or "we") is the organizer of Climate Impact Day, the Climate Ranger Academy, and operator of a digital platform for carbon reduction (hereinafter the "Services"), as well as this website.
For these purposes, we process personal data. Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable person, such as name, date of birth, address but also the content of email correspondence or behaviour on websites (hereinafter "personal data" or "data"). Among the personal data, there are special categories that are particularly protected by law. These include, for example, data on religious beliefs or health data.
The protection of your personal data is of particular importance to us and we process it exclusively on the basis of the legal provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 ("GDPR"), the Data Protection Act 2018 ("DPA 2018"), as well as the Telecommunications Act ("TKG 2003").
In this privacy notice, we inform you about the most important aspects regarding the processing of personal data.
In the context of data processing, Glacier acts as the data controller within the meaning of Art. 4 lit 7 DSGVO. The role of the data controller is characterized by the fact that the controller decides on the purpose and means of the processing of personal data. The controller within the meaning of the GDPR is:
Glacier Carbon Reduction GmbH
Address: Schönbrunner Straße 131 Top 2.03, 1050 Vienna
Company register number: FN540361z
Place of jurisdiction: Commercial Court of Vienna
As a matter of principle, we only collect and use personal data if this:
Glacier processes personal data from you if you provide this data in the context of a registration, contact initiation, business correspondence, or contract processing. This data includes, among other things, contact data (e.g. name, e-mail address, telephone number), company data (e.g. company, position, number of employees), correspondence data (e.g. content of e-mails, letters), and transaction data (e.g. offers, contract documents, invoices).
This personal data is processed for the purpose of contract initiation and processing, as well as for internal company administration. The transmission of personal data is necessary for this purpose, as otherwise a contract cannot be initiated or processed.
In the paragraphs from § 6 onwards, we describe in detail the individual processing activities in connection with our website. It should be noted that not every processing activity described below is necessarily carried out in relation to all data subjects.
We only disclose personal data to third parties (hereinafter referred to as "recipients") if and insofar as this is necessary and permissible. Details on the respective recipients can be found below under the individual data processing operations (see § 6). We may also need to disclose your personal data to a competent authority or a competent court if we are obliged to do so.
In addition, we sometimes use external service providers (so-called "data processors") who process personal data on our behalf. These have been carefully selected by us and are bound by our instructions. If we use processors, they are named in the "Recipients" section of the respective processing activity. In addition, we conclude so-called Data Processing Agreements with all data processors.
Applicable data protection law grants you comprehensive rights with regard to the processing of your personal data, about which we would like to inform you in the following paragraphs. To exercise these rights, please contact email@example.com. If you wish to unsubscribe from any email correspondence, you can do so directly in the newsletter itself by unsubscribing or changing your subscription preferences.
You have the right, on request and free of charge, to obtain confirmation from us as to whether we are processing personal data about you, to obtain information about the personal data we are processing about you, to obtain further information about Glacier's data processing, and to obtain copies of such personal data we are processing about you.
In addition, you have the right to correct inaccurate and complete incomplete personal data that we hold about you, as well as the right to the immediate deletion of the personal data concerning you or, insofar as further processing is required pursuant to Art 17 (3) GDPR, to restriction of processing (in terms of Art 18 GDPR). Glacier will delete your personal data as soon as they are no longer required for the provision and billing of the services.
In addition, you have the right to object to the further use of your personal data in the future or to restrict such use at any time, in case it is processed in accordance with Art 6 (1) (f) GDPR to protect the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party.
However, we would like to point out that the deletion of personal data immediately after the purpose of its storage has ceased to exist, as well as your right to demand the deletion of your personal data, may be restricted by statutory retention obligations (in particular § 212 UGB and § 132 BAO).
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the Austrian Data Protection Authority (www.dsb.gv.at) if you believe that your personal data is being processed by us in breach of data protection regulations.
Description, scope, and purpose: When you visit our website, we process a minimum amount of personal data in the form of server log files as well as cookies and website analytics to provide the website and to ensure its functionality and relevance. In addition, we also integrate third-party content (such as YouTube videos or podcasts). In the following section, we will give you a brief insight into how the processing of personal data for these purposes works:
In part, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the retrieving device, e.g. your computer or mobile phone. We use this data to provide the website and to create so-called log files about the access requests to our website. Log files are stored to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. Under no circumstances is the data from server log files used for marketing-related purposes.
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the delivery of the website to the user's device. For this purpose, the user's IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. In addition to the IP address, we collect the following information, among others: Browser type and version used; Language and version of the browser software; user's operating system; user's internet service provider; user's IP address; date and time of access; the volume of data transmitted; websites from which the user's system accesses our website; and websites accessed by the user's system via our website. The data is also stored in the log files of our system.
This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. This is done anonymously, without identifying the user of the site personally. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.
By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
The data sent by our website and linked to cookies, user IDs, or advertising IDs are automatically deleted by Google after 14 months (once a month). You can prevent the collection of data generated by cookies and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link.
We also use third-party content or services on this website. Specifically, we include videos from YouTube, podcasts from Spotify and fonts from Google. You can find out more details about how they process your personal data on their privacy statements.
In order to integrate content and services (such as videos or podcasts), these third-party providers must retrieve the IP address of the user, as without the IP address they could not send the content to their browser. The IP address is therefore necessary for the display of this content. We aim to only use content whose providers only use the IP address to deliver the content.
Retention period: Personal data is generally deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of personal data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. Server log files are stored for a maximum of 60 days to ensure the operational security and integrity of our systems.
Possibility of revocation: The collection of personal data to provide the website and the storage of personal data in log files is necessary for the operation of the website. You can therefore only exercise your right to object by not visiting the website.
