Thank you for visiting our website and taking data protection and privacy as seriously as we do at d|part. This page provides information on our digital presence and how it abides by both the German Federal Data Protection Act and the European General Data Protection Regulation.
We want to be as clear as possible in this data protection policy, so that it is easy for you to understand how your data is used and what your rights are. The following sections detail the different ways in which we collect, use and handle your data on this website, http://www.dpart.org. Each section also points to the respective privacy policies of services we use.
In legal terms, d|part controls any information you share with us. At any time, you have the right to ask us what data we have collected on you as well as to request that we update or delete this data. If you would like to get in touch with us on these issues, please send a message to dpo(at)dpart.org.

On this website we presently use Google Analytics to help us determine how visitors use our website. When you visit our website and its different pages, Google Analytics collects certain information about you. Examples are the date and time of your visit, the pages you looked at, and the IP address of the device on which you visited d|part’s website. We only use this data in anonymised form to make sure our website is functioning correctly, to determine usage patterns and to improve our online presence (in legal terms, our ‘legitimate interest’). We do not share this information with anyone else.
If you sign up to our newsletter, you provide your explicit consent to receive information from d|part. You will receive an email from us about five times a year. The d|part newsletter highlights recent research activities, reports, commentary, and more. To receive our newsletter, we need at least your e‑mail address. (We also ask for your first and last name, but these are not required fields.) We use an opt-in process to manage our newsletter subscriptions, which means that we only send you our newsletter if you explicitly allow us to. We save this data and use it only for the purpose of sending you our newsletter. We do not share your personal data with anyone else and you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Just click the “unsubscribe” link included at the very bottom of each newsletter, or contact us at info(at)dpart.org.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are 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 leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. You can see, edit, or delete your personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
