Learn what data we collect and how we use it

Who we are

The Climate Walk (hereinafter: Us, We, Our) is a multi-leveled research, education and media-art project by the Wanderers of Changing Worlds/the Austrian association ‘Europäische Klinawanderung’. You can find more information about the association in the imprint (German). If not stated otherwise, this privacy policy applies to the following of our websites and services:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Comments

When you leave comments on the main website we collect the data shown in the comments form (name, email address, website and the comment itself). We also collect your IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Contact forms

When you contact us via one of the contact forms provided on the main website we collect the data shown in the contact form (name, email, subject and the message itself).

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our main website you may opt-in to save your name, email address and website in the cookies. This is for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page on the main website, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in to our main website, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Link shortener

If you visit a shortened URL via our self-hosted link shortener service (e.g. sprint.climatewalk.eu/projectoverview) no personal data will be gathered and stored. We do only count the number of times a URL is clicked. This service is based on the open source software “Yourls” (www.yourls.org). We have adapted this application in such a way that it does not track the IP address of the visitors and in consequence not its location.

Newsletter management

If you have registered yourself for one of our newsletters, we will store your email address, first and last name as well as a list of countries that you are specifically interrested in to receive updates about. This data will be used to send you regular messages about the Climate Walk. This service is self-hosted by us and based on the open source software “Phplist” (www.phplist.org). Besides links that have been shortened with our link shortener (see point above) we will not track your individual clicking behavior in our newsletters. It is only possible for us to see how often a specific link was clicked, but not by whom.
