For asserting the statutory data subject rights and for all other questions about data processing, please send an e-mail to

For US Residents: You authorize the Right.Brain Foundation e.V. to communicate with you in response to your submissions on the website and any other communications.

Notice to California Residents: The California Civil Code permits California residents to request that we not share your Personally Identifiable Information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident, you may contact to request information regarding whether and how we share personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes and/or to request that such information not be shared with third parties for such purposes.

1.4. Recipients

A transfer of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below does not take place. In addition, further transfer always occurs only if there is a legal basis.

We only transfer your personal data to third parties if for example:

  • to the extent that there is a legal obligation for the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 (1) c) GDPR; or
  • the disclosure according to Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR is necessary in the context of our legitimate interests, for example for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims and you have no overriding legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data.

On this legal basis and regarding the purposes we may share your information with third parties who provide services on our behalf to assist us in our business activities. These companies are authorized to use your personal information only to the extent necessary to provide those services to us.

Right.Brain Foundation and these companies have an agreement that the information you provide to us may not be shared by the outside vendors with outside companies without Right.Brain Foundation permission, and that this information may not be used for any purpose other than to provide a service or materials. Currently we use a service provider for our website hosting.

1.5. Duration of Storage

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected and processed. After the purpose has ceased to exist, the data will be deleted if storage is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims. Further information on storage periods can be found in the respective sections on individual processing operations.

2. When you visit our website

2.1. Providing our Website

In the case of merely informational use of the website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server and that is technically necessary for the presentation of our website and to ensure stability and security.

For retrieval from the website, the short-term registration of the IP number is indispensable. The IP address is the globally valid, unique identification of a computer and consists of four blocks of digits separated by dots. As a rule, private users are not assigned a constant IP address by the provider, but only a temporary IP address for one session. Nevertheless, with static IP addresses, a clear assignment of the user's data is possible in principle via this characteristic. The external web servers (see section 1.5) store IP addresses for a maximum of 14 days. Afterwards, the access data is anonymized.

The data we collect for the purposes stated above are:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (specific page)
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Amount of data transferred in each case
  • Website from which the request came
  • browser
  • Operating system and its interface

The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. Since the collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage in log files are absolutely necessary for the operation of the website and for protection against misuse, our legitimate interest in data processing prevails at this point.

3. Contact us via e-mail

When you provide your personal data to us of your own initiative, for example, when you contact us, we collect this personal data. We will, of course, use the personal data provided to us exclusively for the purpose for which you provided it when contacting us.

Any communication of this information is on a voluntary basis and in these cases is initiated by you. Insofar as this involves information on communication channels (for example, e-mail address, telephone number), we will use these channels to contact you in accordance with your request.

The purpose of processing your data is to handle and respond to your request or registration. The legitimate interest in the processing also lies in the purposes described. The basis for the processing of the data that you transmit to us in the course of contacting us is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR, if not stated otherwise below. If you consented to promotional e-mails in the context of our form the legal basis for processing your data for that purpose is Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR. Once you have given your consent, you can withdraw it at any time with future effect.

We will delete your data that we have received in the context of contacting you as soon as they are no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which they were collected, i.e. your request has been fully processed and no further communication with you is required or requested.

4. Changes to the privacy policy

We reserve the right to change or amend this Privacy Policy at any time in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
