Personally identifiable data will only be processed for the stated purpose (see below) and will not be retained any longer than necessary.
When somebody visits waag.org, this is a matter between them and Waag. No third parties are notified of this visit in any way; all resources, apart from clips at vimeo.com, are hosted on our own servers. In order to watch Vimeo video, we require specific permission.
We make use of Matomo for site visit analytics. No identifying data is stored as the last two bytes of your ip address are discarded. We host Matomo on our own servers, no data leaves the waag.org domain. Your visit is tabulated, but you are not being tracked.
Waag publishes several newsletters regarding our activities and projects. Your name and email address will only be added to the list of subscribers when you ask us to. Each issue of our newsletter includes a link to cancel your subscription. Waag uses a third party solution to manage the mailing lists, called MailChimp; see their privacy statement. Other than this the list of subscribers will not be shared with any third party.
Projects and events
For event registrations, Waag uses Eventbrite, or in some cases Typeform. At any moment you can request that your recorded personal data (name and email address) are removed by these services, unless there is a legal reason to keep your data, such as with financial transactions. See the respective privacy statements of Eventbrite and Typeform.
Waag uses recruitment software from Homerun for job applications. When using the application form, it is clearly indicated how long your personal data will be retained. When the application process has finished, all data will be deleted at the end of this period. This data can only be viewed by employees of Waag involved in the procedure.
