Thank you for your interest in Cademi! We are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy when you use our website at www.cademi.io and our Services.
What is Personal Data?
Personal data is any information relating to personal or material circumstances that relates to an identified or identifiable individual. This includes, for example, your name, date of birth, e-mail address, postal address, or telephone number as well as online identifiers such as your IP address. In contrast, information of a general nature that cannot be used to determine your identity is not personal data. This includes, for example, the number of users of a website.
General Information on Data Processing

All personal data that we obtain from you via the website will be processed for the purposes described in more detail below. This is done within the framework of the DPA and the GDPR or with your consent. In particular, we process personal data only when processing is permitted and if:
- you have given your consent,
- the data is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract / pre-contractual measures,
- the data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation or
- the data is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of our company, provided that your interests are not overridden.

c) Exercising your rights
If you wish to access your personal data or exercise any of the rights listed above, you should apply in writing, providing evidence of your identity. Any communication from us in relation to your rights as detailed above will be provided free of charge. However, in case of requests that are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of their repetitive character, we may charge a reasonable fee taking into account the administrative costs of providing the information or communication or taking the action requested; or refuse to act on the request.
d) Updating your information
If you believe that the information, we hold about you is inaccurate or that we are no longer entitled to use it and want to request its rectification, deletion, or object to its processing, please contact us using email@example.com.
e) The competent supervisory authority
The Information Commissioner`s Office (ICO) is the relevant authority in the UK. The ICO is located at Wycliffe House, Water Ln, Wilmslow SK9 5AF, UK (www.ico.org.uk). If you believe that the processing of your personal data is not lawful, you can lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority. We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach any Supervisory Authority.
f) International data transfer
In the course of our business and website operations, we process data. This also includes disclosure by transmission to third parties and, where applicable, to so-called third countries outside the UK and the EEA. Where we transfer data outside the UK or the EEA, we make sure to use the necessary and appropriate safeguards to ensure that the security of your personal data is maintained and guaranteed. In particular those include standard contractual clauses, binding corporate rules and data processing agreements. If you have any questions relating to our third-party providers, please refer to their relevant Privacy Policies or contact us for further details using firstname.lastname@example.org.
g) Storage and retention of your data
We process and store your personal data only for the period of time required to achieve the respective processing purpose or for as long as a legal retention period (in particular commercial and tax law) exists. Once the purpose has been achieved or the retention period has expired, the corresponding data is routinely deleted.
We have implemented technical and administrative security measures to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation, and unauthorised access. All our employees and service providers working for us are bound by the applicable data protection laws.
Nonetheless, databases or data sets that include personal data may be breached inadvertently or through wrongful intrusion. Upon becoming aware of a data breach, we will notify all affected individuals whose personal data may have been compromised, and the notice will be accompanied by a description of action being taken to reconcile any damage as a result of the data breach. Notices will be provided as expeditiously as possible after the breach was discovered.
Processing of Automatically Collected Data
a) Collection of access data and log files
We collect data on every access to our website. The access data includes the name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.
Log file information is stored for security reasons (e.g., for the clarification of abuse or fraud) for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. Data whose further storage is necessary for evidentiary purposes is exempt from deletion until the respective incident is finally clarified. The legal basis for the data processing is our legitimate interest in providing an appealing website.
c) Google Tag Manager
We use Google Tag Manager, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. This service allows website tags to be managed via an interface. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. No cookies are set, and no Personal information is collected. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that may collect data. The Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags, insofar as these are implemented with the Google Tag Manager. More information on the Google Tag Manager can be found at the following link: http://www.google.com/tagmanager/use-policy.html. The legal basis for the data processing is our legitimate interest.
d) Google Fonts
We use Google Fonts on our website to display external fonts. This is a service provided by Google Inc. To enable the display of certain fonts on our website, a connection to the Google server in the USA is established when our website is accessed. The connection to Google established when you call up our website enables Google to determine which website sent your request and to which IP address the display of the font is to be transmitted. The legal basis for the data processing is our legitimate interest.
We also use Google`s reCAPTCHA from Google Inc of 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, US to check whether data input is made by a human being or by an automated program. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor on the basis of various characteristics. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. The legal basis for the data processing is our legitimate interest in operating a secure and spam free website.
f) YouTube Videos
We have integrated components from YouTube. The integration requires that YouTube can perceive your IP address. The IP address is required in order to send the video content to your browser. If you click on a video on our website, your browser will be prompted by the component to download a corresponding representation of the component. In this way, YouTube knows which specific sub-pages you have visited. The legal basis for the data processing is our legitimate interest and your consent.
