Privacy Policy

Legal Requirements on the privacy policy declaration are set out in the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG) and the Telemediengesetz (TMG).

The content of this website is provided by the Europäische Meteorologische Gesellschaft e.V.  The Webhosting Provider is 1&1.

Server Log-files – automatically created records

When accessing this website a record is created automatically by the provider (or the wehosting provider) that contains information such as date and time, pages accessed, number of visits, size of data transferred, type of browser including version number, operating system of the user, referrer URL, IP address and accessing provider. The provider uses these records only for statistical analyses to monitor and improve services.

Personal Data

Personal data (e.g. names, addresses and e-mail addresses) is only collected with the prior consent of the website user, for example when registering for a photo competition or subscribing to the newsletter.

We currently use the US-based newsletter tool of mailchimp to distribute the ems-message to all subscribers, and therefore store all subscriber e-mails plus first and last name as provided by the subscriber in the mailchimp data base.

No data will be forwarded to third parties without the express permission of the user.

Links zu other websites

This statement applies to the EMS Website and further emetsoc-domains that are accessible via this portal. The websites in these domains may provide links to other websites and providers which are not controlled by EMS. A link from the EMS website is not an EMS endorsement for any organisation and EMS is not responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance or legality of material contained on any other website; this privacy policy declaration does not apply to these other websites.

Future Changes

EMS reserves the right to change this policy in any manner at any time without prior notice. If we make material changes to our privacy policy, these changes will be posted on this page.
