General Information on Data Processing
Scope of the processing of personal data
The protection of personal data is a very important concern for the Robert Koch Institute (RKI). The Robert Koch Institute is a federal authority and as such subject to the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). The use of the GaP RISK Research Project website (www.gap_risk.de) is, as a matter of principle, possible without disclosing any personal data. When using email links and in the event of telephone contacts to research project members, personal data are processed. There is no automated decision making (so-called profiling).
Personal data are information which are associated with an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes data which allow conclusions concerning your identity. Further definitions of the terms used (eg “processing”) can be found in Article 4 GDPR.
Since new technologies and the permanent further development of this website can lead to amendments to this Data Privacy Statement, we recommend that you re-read the Data Privacy Statement at regular intervals.
Duration of storage
The storage is carried out in conformity with the directive for the processing and administration of records in federal German ministries which is implemented within RKI as the registry directive (RegR).

The processing of your data is based on your consent (Article 6 para 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw your consent to further processing at any time with effect on the future. If deletion is not possible because of storage periods, the data will be restricted in terms of processing. Further information can be found in the section "Your Data Privacy Rights".

Contents of other providers
The web pages www.gap_risk.de contain links to other websites. On all pages, links to contents of web pages of third parties (“third party content”) have been created by Dr Margrit Kalckloesch (editorial scientist) to the best of her knowledge and belief and taking into account the highest possible care. We merely provide access to “third party content”. In this connection the trustworthiness of third party providers and the accuracy as well as lawfulness of the “third party content” has been given special attention.
However, since the content of web pages is dynamic and can change at all times, a permanent individual review of all contents provided with a link is not possible in each case. RKI does, therefore, expressly not appropriate the content of web pages of third parties which are linked with its own internet presence. The respective provider of the page to which a reference is made is exclusively liable for damage and legal infringements from the use or non-use of “third party content”. Any obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general legislation is not affected. A corresponding liability is, however, only possible after knowledge has been obtained with respect to a concrete legal infringement. If such legal infringements become known, we will immediately remove such contents.
RKI does not control and has no influence on its operators complying with the data privacy provisions.
Insofar as the contents published on these pages include legal provisions, public notifications, recommendations or information, they have been created to the best of our knowledge and withthe greatest possible care. In the event of discrepancies, the current official version applies, however, exclusively in the way it has been published in the public promulgating organ provided for that purpose. Any legal indications, recommendations and information are non-binding. There is no legal counselling.
The Robert Koch Institute is not liable for damage or legal infringements arising out of the use or a failure to use the information provided.
The editor kindly asks the users of www.gap_risk.de to draw their attention to illegal or inaccurate contents of third parties to which a link is maintained in the internet presence. In the same way we kindly ask you to inform us under the stated contact address if our own contents are not error-free, up to date, complete or comprehensible.
These internet pages are property of the GaP RISK research project. Their use, copying, circulation, translation, microstorage, storage and processing using electronic systems for commercial or other purposes is only allowed within the frame of the applicable legal regulations, in particular the German Copyright Act.
