The content of this website has been prepared solely for the purpose of providing information about Rapid Response Foundation.
It is not intended to constitute professional advice. Although reasonable care has been taken to ensure that the content of this website is accurate, Rapid Response Foundation makes no representation as to the completeness or accuracy of the information contained on this website, which may be incomplete, out of date or may contain errors.
We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the Rapid Response Foundation. The use of the Internet pages of the Rapid Response Foundation is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the data protection regulations applicable to the Rapid Response Foundation. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
Rapid Response Foundation has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.

Collection of data and information
The website of the Rapid Response Foundation collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the Rapid Response Foundation does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the Rapid Response Team Foundation analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
Rights of the data subject
Every data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right to receive without cost information about the personal data stored concerning that person and to receive a copy of this information at any time. Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right to obtain information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate security measures in connection with the transfer.
Every data subject shall also have the right to request the rectification without delay of inaccurate personal data concerning that person. Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration, taking into account the purposes of the processing.
Finally, every data subject shall have the right to oppose the processing of personal data. In addition, the data subject shall have the right to request that personal data relating to that person be erased immediately where processing is not necessary. In the event of an objection, Rapid Response Foundation will no longer process the personal data unless we can provide evidence of compelling reasons for processing that are worthy of protection and outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If a data subject requests to exercise one or more of these rights, this person may contact the responsible at any time.
