Personal Data

Personal data is all information about any individual. This includes information about your identity such as your name, your e-mail address, or your postal address. Any information that cannot be linked to your identity (e.g. statistical details such as the number of users of the online offering) is, however, not considered to be personal data.

You can browse our website without disclosing your identity and without providing any personal data. In that case, we will merely collect general information about your visit to our online offering. However, some of the online services offered require you to provide certain personal data. As a rule, we will process such data only for purposes connected with the use of this online offering, including without limitation for the provision of the desired information. Whenever personal data is collected, you are only required to provide the data that is essential. Also, you may be asked to provide additional details, which are optional information provided voluntarily. We let you know in each case whether the input fields are for mandatory or optional details.

Processing Personal Data

We store the information provided by you on our protected website servers. Technical measures are taken to protect such servers against loss, destruction, access, modification, or dissemination of your data by unauthorized persons. Access to your data will be permitted only to a limited number of people in charge of the technical, commercial, or editorial support of the servers. Notwithstanding regular controls, full protection against all risks cannot be provided.

Disclosure Of Personal Data to Third Parties

We use your personal information exclusively to provide the services that you have requested from us. As we use external service providers in performing the service requested, such external service providers will also access the data required for that specific service. By taking the necessary technical and organizational measures we ensure compliance with data privacy principles; and we demand the same from our external partners and service providers.

Moreover, we will not disclose the data to any third parties, without your express consent. We will only disclose your data without your consent if we are obligated to do so under legal provisions and/or administrative or judicial orders. This may include, without being limited to, giving information for purposes of criminal prosecution, to avert danger, or to enforce intellectual property rights.

Social Media

We use third-party plugins for online social media offerings, such as links to the social networks Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube. These plugins and add-ons are compatible with GDPR standards.

The links are identified by the logo of their relevant providers.

Clicking on a link opens the relevant social media web pages; this Privacy Policy does not apply to such web pages. For further details on the provisions applicable on such web pages please refer to the relevant Privacy Policies of each of the providers; you can find them at:





No personal information is forwarded to the relevant providers before clicking on the links or calling up a plugin. Calling up the linked website also constitutes the basis for data processing by the relevant website provider.

These applications do not track any user data that is not required to carry out the required task.

Some of these plugins have features to integrate embedded widgets from third party services like (Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn official buttons).

These plugins may send requests to third-party APIs for information like social shares and social comment count. The API requests do not include any personal data of the website user other than the IP address.

A4C and our plugin providers do not store any data obtained by our plugins on our servers, nor do we share that data with any third party.

Use of YouTube

Our Online Offerings may contain videos for which we use plugins from the Google-run site YouTube (“YouTube”). Using YouTube enables us to show you videos and give you more information about us and our projects.

The operator of the service is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you call up an internet page of our Online Offering which contains a video, a connection with the YouTube servers is created. On that occasion, the YouTube server is told which internet pages of our website you have visited.

If you are logged in to your YouTube account at that time, you allow YouTube to directly associate your browsing behavior with your profile. You can prevent that by logging out of your YouTube account first. For further information on the handling of user data please refer to the Google Privacy Policy which also applies to YouTube.
