Welcome to www.ioannalin.net. Data protection and data security when using my website are very important to us. We would therefore like to inform you which of your Personal Data we collect when you visit my website and for what purposes it is used.
Who is responsible?
The person responsible in the sense of Greece’s Data Protection Act (Law 4624/2019) (“DPA”) and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) is Ioanna Lin and the terms “we”, “us”, or “our” refer to me and the third parties acting on my behalf. Please direct any questions you may have to me using email@example.com, or use my Contact Form.
Principles of data processing
- Personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, e-mail address, IP address or user behavior.
The processing of Personal Data (e.g. collection, retrieval, use, storage or transmission) always requires a legal basis.
- Legal basis
In accordance with the DPA and the GDPR, we have to have at least one of the following legal bases to process your Personal Data: i) you have given your consent, ii) the data is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract / pre-contractual measures, iii) the data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation, or iv) the data is necessary to protect our legitimate interests, provided that your interests are not overridden.
Processed Personal Data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no longer any legally required retention obligations.
Data we collect
- Provision and use of the website
When you call up and use my website, we collect the Personal Data that your browser automatically transmits to our server. This is technically necessary for us to display my website and to ensure its stability and security. In this sense, we collect the following data: i) IP address of the requesting computer, ii) Date and time of access, iii) name and URL of the file accessed, iv) website from which the access was made (referrer URL), v) browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider. The legal basis is our legitimate interest.
The hosting service used by us for the purpose of operating my website is OVH Groupe SAS. In doing so OVH processes inventory data, contact data, content data, usage data, meta data and communication data of interested parties and visitors of my website and services, on the basis of our legitimate interests.
- Content Management System
We also use the Content Management System (CMS) of WordPress by Automattic Inc to publish and maintain the created and edited content and texts on my website. This means that all content and texts submitted to us is transferred to WordPress. This represents a legitimate interest.
We have integrated Google Fonts by Google LLC, and Font Awesome of Fonticons Inc. To enable the display of fonts, a connection to Font Awesome’s and Google’s server is established when my website is accessed. This enables Google and Fonticons to determine which website sent the request and to which IP address the display of the font is to be transmitted. The integration is based on our legitimate interest.
We have integrated video components from Vimeo and YouTube (Google LLC). The integration requires that Vimeo/YouTube can perceive your IP address. This is a mere technical process and required to make the video components available for viewing in your browser. The basis for processing is our legitimate interest.
We use so-called cookies on my website. Cookies are pieces of information that are transmitted from our web server or third-party web servers to your web browser and stored there for later retrieval. Cookies may be small files or other types of information storage. There are different types of cookies: i) Essential Cookies. Essential cookies are cookies to provide a correct and user-friendly website; and ii) Non-essential Cookies. Non-essential Cookies are any cookies that do not fall within the definition of essential cookies, such as cookies used to analyze your behavior on a website (“analytical” cookies) or cookies used to display advertisements to you (“advertising” cookies).
- Cookie consent
My website uses a cookie consent management tool to obtain your consent to the storage of cookies and to document this consent. When you enter my website, the following Personal Data is transferred to us via Hu-manity: i) Your consent(s) or revocation of your consent(s); ii) Your IP address; iii) Information about your browser; iv) Information about your device; v) Time of your visit to my website. The basis for processing is our legitimate interest.
- Contacting me
We offer you the opportunity to contact me using various methods. We collect the data you submit such as your name, email address, telephone number and your message in order to process your enquiry and respond to you. The legal basis is both your consent and contract.
- When using my services
We process the Personal Data involved in your use of our services in order to be able to provide my contractual services. This includes in particular support, correspondence with you, invoicing, fulfillment of my contractual, accounting and tax obligations. Accordingly, the data is processed on the basis of fulfilling our contractual obligations and our legal obligations.
- Administration, financial accounting, office organization, contact management
We process data in the context of administrative tasks as well as organization of my business, and compliance with legal obligations, such as archiving. In this regard, we process the same data that we process in the course of providing my contractual services. The processing bases are our legal obligations and our legitimate interest.
- Payment Data
If you purchase one of my lesson packages, your payment data will be processed via our payment service provider PayPal through my website. Payment data will solely be processed by PayPal and we have no access to any Payment Data you may submit. The legal basis for the provision of a payment system is the establishment and implementation of the user contract for the use of the service.
We undertake to protect your privacy and to treat your Personal Data confidentiality. In order to prevent manipulation or loss or misuse of your data stored with us, we take extensive technical and organizational security precautions which are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress. These include, among other things, the use of recognised encryption procedures (SSL or TLS).
However, we would like to point out that, due to the structure of the Internet, it is possible that the rules of data protection and the above-mentioned security measures are not observed by other persons or institutions that are not in our area of responsibility. We have no technical influence on this. It is the user’s responsibility to protect the data he or she provides against misuse by encrypting it or in any other way.
How we may share your Personal Data
We may also disclose your Personal Data for any purpose with your consent or for law enforcement, fraud prevention or other legal actions as required by law or regulation, or if we reasonably believe that we must protect us, our customers or other business interests. Except as described above of which you will be informed in advance, we will not disclose your Personal Data.
