II. General information

1. Definitions
Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.

Breach – A breach is any potential or actual misappropriation, unauthorized use of, or unauthorized access to, personal data as defined below or any other compromise of the security of such data through malevolent actions such as hacking.

Controller or controller responsible for the processing – is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by local law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by local law.

Consent – Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed, and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

Cookies – Cookies are trackers consisting of small sets of data stored in the user’s browser.

Data subject – is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.

Personal data – means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”). Identifiable is a natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier (e.g., cookie) or one or more special features that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.

Processing – means any operation carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures or any such series of operations in connection with personal data. The term goes a long way and covers any operation with personal data by any means, such as collecting, recording, storing, retaining, using, adapting or altering, disclosing, transferring, erasing or destructing personal data.

Profiling – Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements.

Pseudonymisation – Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Processor – Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

Recipient – Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with local law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.

Tracker – Tracker indicates any technology – e.g cookies, unique identifiers, web beacons, embedded scripts, e-tags and fingerprinting – that enables the tracking of users, for example by accessing or storing information on the user’s device.


2. Data processing principles
The processing of personal data by Inclusive Peace complies with the following data processing principles:

Lawful process – Personal data is processed by Inclusive Peace in a proportionate and appropriate way and in compliance with applicable laws and regulations and this Policy.

Transparency – Inclusive Peace provides data subjects with all information with regard to the processing of their personal data not later than at the time of collection of such personal data.

Limited processing – The processing of personal data by Inclusive Peace is limited to the purposes indicated at the time when it was collected. If personal data is disclosed to a third party, Inclusive Peace ensures that such third party’s use of the personal data is compatible with the purposes for which the personal data was collected. Inclusive Peace shall also delete said personal data once the purpose for which it has been collected is terminated, unless applicable laws, regulations or adequate corporate governance provide for a longer period of retention.

Security – Technical and organizational measures shall be implemented by Inclusive Peace to ensure the security of personal data. These measures protect personal data from unauthorized access and unlawful processing or disclosure.

Data protection by default – Inclusive Peace must take appropriate measures to mitigate the risk of data protection breaches. Only personal data which is necessary for the contemplated processing is processed.


3. Third party disclosures and cross-border data transfers
Inclusive Peace will pass on your personal data only if you have given express permission, if there is a legal obligation to do so or if this is necessary for the assertion of our rights, in particular to enforce claims arising from the relationship between you and Inclusive Peace.
In addition, we pass your data on to third parties as far as necessary in the context of use of the website to provide you with your chosen services and to analyze your user behavior. As far as required for the purposes named in the preceding sentence, your data may be passed on also to third parties abroad. If the website contains links to third-party websites, once you have clicked on one of these links, Inclusive Peace will no longer have any influence on the collection, processing, storage or use of personal data by third parties, and accepts no responsibility for this.

Inclusive Peace is further entitled to pass your personal data also on to third-party companies (contracted service providers) abroad, when this is required for the data processing described in this Privacy Policy. These third-party companies are committed to protecting your data to the same extent as we are. This Privacy Policy only applies to Inclusive Peace and Inclusive Peace is not responsible for the privacy practices of third parties.


III. Website

1. Data collected
The following data is collected on our websites:
– information about the browser type and version used;
– the operating system of the user;
– the user’s Internet service provider;
– the IP address of the user;
– date and time of access (log files);
– websites from which the user’s system accesses our website;
– websites that are accessed by the user’s system via our website contact details (e.g., when using any contact forms);
– content data (e.g., text input when using any contact forms or search terms entered).
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. For the following reasons the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session:
– provision of the online offer, its functions and contents;
– answering contact inquiries and communication with users;
– security measures;
– ensuring the functionality of the website;
– measurement of the reach / marketing.

We use https to transmit data securely on the Internet. By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission over the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You acknowledge the use of this safeguarding of the data transfer at the small lock symbol in the upper left corner of the browser and the use of the scheme https (instead of http) as part of our Internet address.

2. Duration of storage
The data collected on our website will be deleted as soon as they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. If the data is not deleted because it is necessary for other and legally permissible purposes, its processing shall be restricted, i.e., the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for commercial or tax reasons.

3. Rights of affected persons
Data subjects may request information with regard to the processing of their personal data by Inclusive Peace, and in particular about the personal data being processed, the purpose of such processing, and the contemplated period of storage of the personal data. Data subjects can request to correct, update, modify or delete their personal data by sending a request to Inclusive Peace.

Data Subjects shall have the right to file a complaint with the local data protection authorities for a breach of this Policy by Inclusive Peace.

IV. Use of cookies

1. General
When visiting our website for the first time, every user is expressly made aware, by means of a so-called Cookie banner (so-called Borlabs Cookie), of the use of cookies. Reference is made to this Data Privacy Policy, which in particular explains in detail how the user must proceed to prevent any cookies or other such tools being used. If you continue to navigate on our website, without having made use of the options for rejecting cookies described here, you are giving your express consent to the use of cookies.

The Cookie banner itself constitutes a technically necessary cookie (borlab cookie) but does not collect any personal data. Its purpose is to store the consent you have given when you entered the website. To revoke said consent, simply delete the cookie from your browser (see Section IV. 6. hereunder). The Cookie banner will pop-up anew upon reentering / reloading of our website. If you wish to modify your preferences, please access the footer menu “Cookie preferences” at the bottom of the website.

2. Cookies
Cookies are information files that your Internet browser automatically stores on your computer’s hard drive when you visit our website. Cookies do not damage your computer’s hard drive, nor do they transmit users’ personal data to us. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier for the cookie. It consists of a sequence of characters by which website pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows the website pages visited and the servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. In this way, a specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by means of the unique cookie ID.

Please refer to the “Cookie Preferences” in the footer for the list of web analytic tools, tracking tools and cookies used on our website.

3. Web analysis tools
Web analysis tools are used to obtain statistical information about use of our website pages and thereby improve our online services. These tools are generally provided by an external service provider (e.g., Google Analytics). Usually the information gathered for this purpose about the use of a website page is transmitted by means of cookies to the server of the third party, which may be located abroad (notably in the USA).

Before data is transferred, the user’s IP address is shortened, preventing the identification of individual end devices. The IP addresses recorded as part of the use of third-party web analysis tools are not linked with other data of these third-party providers.

4. Tracking tools
Various so-called tracking tools are being used on our website. These tracking tools enable us to observe your surfing behavior on our website. These observations help us to improve our website continuously as we tailor it better to user needs. This process involves the creation of pseudonymized user profiles and the use of cookies.

Please refer to the “Cookie Preferences” in the footer for the list of web analytic tools, tracking tools and cookies used on our website.

5. Social media plugins
Various social media plugins are being used on our website, for example from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and YouTube. The plugins on our website are not deactivated by default. You can deactivate the plugins by accessing the footer menu “Cookie preferences” at the bottom of the website.
If these plugins are activated, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of the corresponding social media service as soon as you call up one of our website pages. The content of the plugin is transmitted direct from the social media service to your browser, which integrates the content into the website. The plugins can be deactivated again with a single click.
If you wish to prevent social media services from assigning data collected via our website to your personal profile in the corresponding social media, you must log out of the relevant social media before visiting our website.

You can also completely stop the plugins from loading by using special add-ons for your browser.

Please refer to the “Cookie Preferences” in the footer for the list of web analytic tools, tracking tools and cookies used on our website.

6. Prevention and deletion
Most Internet browsers accept cookies automatically. You can, however, configure your browser to that no cookies are stored on your computer or so that a message always appears whenever you receive a new cookie. You can also delete cookies from your computer or your mobile device by using the corresponding function on your browser.

You may not be able to use all functions of our website, should you choose to deactivate cookies.


V. Newsletter

1. Subscription, processing of your data and cancellation
You have the possibility to subscribe to our newsletter through our website. This requires registration. As part of the registration process, you must supply your e-mail address and your first and last names. This information is compulsory for data processing (mailing the newsletter). You may also supply further information (organization, position, city, and country) but this is not compulsory.

By registering, you give us permission to process the information supplied in order to send the newsletter regularly to the address you provided, for statistical analysis of user behavior, and to optimize the newsletter, as described hereunder (see Section V. 2 hereunder). This consent constitutes our legal basis for processing your e-mail address and other information.
You thereby also authorize us to commission third parties to carry out technical processing of advertising measures and authorize us to pass on your data for this purpose (see Section II. 3. above).

At the end of every newsletter is a link that allows you to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. As you unsubscribe, you have the option of letting us know your reason. Once you have unsubscribed, your personal data is deleted. Further processing shall take place only in anonymized form to help us optimize our newsletter.

2. Analysis of newsletter use
To send out our newsletter, we use e-mail marketing services supplied by third parties. Our newsletter may therefore contain a so-called web beacon (tracking pixel) or similar technical tool. A web beacon is an invisible graphic image measuring 1×1 pixel that is associated with the user ID of the corresponding newsletter subscriber.

The use of such services allows us to determine if the e-mails containing our newsletter have been opened or not. These tools can also help record and evaluate the click-through behavior of the newsletter recipient. We use these data for statistical purposes and to optimize our newsletter in terms of content and structure. This enables us to tailor the information and offers in our newsletter better to the individual interests of each recipient. The tracking pixel is deleted when you delete the newsletter.

To prevent tracking pixels from being included in our newsletters, please set your e-mail program so that no HTML is displayed in messages.


VI. Contact form

You have the option of using a contact form to get in touch with us. Doing so requires that you enter the following personal data:
– name;
– e-mail address;
– at the time the message is sent, the following data is also stored: date and time of contact;
– message content and all entered data from the user.

To make use of the contact form, you will have to consent that the above data may be processed in order to answer your queries and stored for documentation purposes in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


VII. Amendment of the data protection declaration

We reserve the right to amend or add to this statement at any time at our discretion. The version currently displayed on the website is definitive.
