Spatial Eye respects your privacy and adheres to the rules set by the General Data Protection Regulation and other privacy laws and regulations.
Spatial Eye can unilaterally change this privacy statement. We therefore advise you to check this statement regularly for changes.
Spatial Eye distinguishes between actively and passively provided data. Passively provided data is data that you provide to website managers without you perhaps being aware of it. When you visit the GSA User Community, we record a number of technical details such as the IP address of your computer, the operating system you use, the internet browser you use to browse, the last internet page you visited before you visited the websites of the GSA User Community came and the pages you visit within the websites.
In addition, we collect and process data that you actively provide to us. This only applies if you create an account or if you send us an e-mail. We collect and process the following categories of personal data:
- Date of Birth.
- Contact details.
- Other personal data that you can enter when you create an account (note that this data is not all mandatory for creating an Account).
- Personal data, insofar as these are included in the content that you post on the Website.
- Personal data, insofar as these are contained in messages exchanged via the Website.
- Personal data about your behavior on the Website such as imposed warnings and sanctions.
- Processing Purposes
The personal data that you actively provide to the GSA User Community is used for the following purposes:
- To provide our services to you.
- To give you the opportunity to post content on the Websites.
- To keep records of all visitors who create an account.
- To maintain contact with you about or in connection with the Websites and our services.
- To send you a newsletter on request in which we can keep track of whether you open it.
- To prevent fraud and abuse.
- To establish a activity profile based on your contribution to the GSA User Community.
- If you have given unambiguous permission to do so, to inform you about current and future products or services (opt-in).
The GSA User Community publishes certain data that you have included in your profile on the websites. This data is accessible to all visitors to the website. When completing your profile, it is indicated which information is published on the website. If you do not want this information to be public, you can leave the entry fields in your profile blank. The content that you place on the website is also accessible to all visitors to the website.
The GSA User Community will not make your data available to third parties, unless you agreed to participate to special promotion activities in collaboration with a third party. In such cases we always make this known in advance so that you have the choice to participate or not. Our employees and third parties cooperating with us are obliged to respect the confidentiality of your data.
With the help of a permanent cookie, the websites can recognize you on your next visit. When logging in to your account you automatically use the option to save your session ID in a permanent cookie.
The GSA User Community also contains cookies from Spatial Eye (https://spatial-eye.com). This allows data on visitor behavior to be combined with data from other Spatial Eye subsidiaries in order to better tailor advertisements to your interests.
Google uses this information to keep track of how the website is used, to prepare reports on website activity and to offer other services with regard to website activity and internet use. Google may provide this information to third parties if Google is legally required to do so, or insofar as these third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not combine your IP address with other data that Google has. You can find more information at Google: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.
As mentioned in article 5, you either select not to accept cookies at all, or you can set your internet browser to notify you when a cookie is being placed and you can completely block the placing of cookies. However, you may then not be able to use all parts of the Website.
The data that you include in your profile cannot, in principle, be indexed by external websites, such as search engines. All other content posted by you is indexed by search engines.
The personal data collected via this website are protected by current customary techniques.
Content that you have placed on the Website will in principle be stored for as long as your account is maintained. If you cancel your account, the personal data associated with your account will be made anonymous so that the content that you have placed on the websites can no longer be traced to your person by other visitors.
The other personal data is stored as long as your account is maintained or as long as the law requires. Personal data with inactive accounts will be deleted after a period of five (5) years.
You have the right to view, correct or delete your personal data. For the most part, members can do this themselves, for example via the My GSA User Community page. In cases where this is not possible in this way, you can address a specified request to the GSA User Community to view, correct or delete your personal data. For this you can send an email to community[at]geospatialanalysis.online
The GSA User Community will in principle respond to a request for inspection or correction within four weeks. In the event of a request for deletion, the GSA User Community will delete the personal data concerned as soon as possible, unless and insofar as the law requires that the personal data in question be stored or there are (other) urgent reasons that preclude deletion. The GSA User Community will send you a confirmation message after execution of a request for removal. If the GSA User Community has not (partially) deleted the personal data in question, the GSA User Community will send the visitor a message explaining why the request could not be (fully) met.
If the GSA User Community cannot or does not fully identify the personal data to which a request for access, correction or removal relates, the GSA User Community may ask the visitor to (further) specify his request. The execution of the request is then suspended until the visitor has provided the (further) specification.
The GSA User Community offers Direct Messages (in short: DM), a system with which registered visitors can send each other a message directly via the website. Direct Messages are basically visible to the addressee(s) in the DM discussion.
All participants also have the option to add new participants to the DM discussion, making the complete message series visible to the new participant. A maximum of 10 participants can be added to a DM discussion.
Just like the regular forum discussions, messages are stored on our servers unencrypted. In the event of misuse of the DM system or suspicion of unwanted activities (for example: spam, threat, scams, etc.), a select group of administrators of the GSA User Community can view the relevant DM boxes.
If you do not appreciate that other visitors can send you a message via the website or do not want to use Direct Messages for other reasons, you can turn this off in your preferences on the forum, under the heading “Privacy”.
For questions or complaints about your data and the protection of your privacy you can contact the Spatial Eye Data Protection Officer via community[at]geospatialanalysis.online
