Netwars Privacy Statement
Thank you for being interested in netwars.
“netwars / out of CTRL” is a fact-based TV documentary, interactive web documentary, TV movie and graphic novel app exploring the impending threat of cyberwarfare. We want you to know what’s happening, to get a sense for the threats and an attitude of self-defense. We want your personal attention, we do not want your personal data. But still, your data is everywhere.
So when you use this site, information about you may may be collected by us or third parties we trust. This is why we wrote this policy to help you understand what information we collect, how we use it, and what choices you have regarding your information. Some of the concepts below are a little technical, but we’ve tried our best to explain things in a simple and clear way.
We’re going to explain what this data is, where it goes, how it could be used and how you can prevent it from coming into existence in the first place. We welcome your questions and comments on this policy, please contact us at info(at)netwars-project.com, via Twitter @netwarsproject, Facebook or telephone.
WHAT INFORMATION DO WE COLLECT AND WHAT CHOICES DO YOU HAVE ABOUT YOUR DATA?
We like to divide the data into three types: “personally identifiable information”, “device information” and “aggregate information”.
Personally identifiable information is anything that can potentially be used to uniquely identify, contact, or locate you. This could be your email address or the IP address assigned to you by your Internet provider. There are two instances where we collect this type of information:
a) we record your email address when you choose to subscribe to our newsletter and
b) your IP address gets recorded in our servers logfiles (see below).
Device information is anything your browser, your computer or smartphone tells our website about itself, such as information about how it’s configured, which plugins you use, screen size, etc. This is purely technical at first glance, but may become personally identifiable in cases where it is associated with your email or other identifier, or if you use a very rare browser / plugin combination (you can check the uniqueness of your browser for yourself).
Aggregate information is anonymous information obtained by summing up device and personally identifiable information. This includes items such as frequency of visits, most popular pages, most popular in-page interactions used during each visit. Aggregate information cannot be used to identify or locate you because your data has been mangled into a large group of user data.
Server logfiles: Our servers record your IP address and some device information automatically in their log files. We use those files to help troubleshooting our website and help to make it better. The logfiles are kept for two weeks and deleted afterwards. We do not use this information to locate, contact or identify anybody. We will not share this information with anybody unless forced to do so by german law.
Opting out: You can opt out of having your IP address and device information recorded by anybody, including us, by using the Tor Browser Bundle on your computer to access our website.
Cookies:Our server and some third-party servers of services we use send cookies, little text fragments, to your browser. The cookies are used to collect aggregate, technical and personally identifiable information and make logins easier if you want to comment. You can use almost all of our website – except for the comments – without accepting the cookies.
Opting out: You can set your browser not to accept cookies. Please refer to your browsers help or to this website: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/stop-cookies-installed.html.
Google Analytics:We use Google Analytics to collect and analyze aggregate information and look for things we can improve on our website. We’ve set Google Analytics to anonymize your IP address to make it more difficult to collect personally identifiable information.
Opting out: If you would like to opt-out of Google Analytics, Google has developed a tool that works with major internet browsers to permit you to opt-out. For more information and install their opt-out tool please visit: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
YouTube: We embed video in privacy enhanced mode – no data is transmitted until you click on “play”. Be aware that some videos start automatically, but only on the detailed view of the articles. Please refer to YouTube Datenschutzbestimmungen for further information.
Opting out: To prevent any data from being transmitted to YouTube, you must refrain from using the video feature.
Social Network: Sharing The “sharing”- function on our website prevent Facebook, Twitter and Google+ from collecting data on you, as long as if you don’t click on them.
HOW DO WE USE THE DATA WE COLLECT?
If you choose to subscribe we will send you our newsletter. Should we be the target of an attempt to disrupt, or maliciously modify our work, we may find this data useful when we do our best to defend us. And we’ll use the aggregated data to get a sense about what are the most and least popular parts of our website, what technology you use to access ist and where in the world you are listening, watching and reading.
It’s possible to opt out of being part of that data pool, (see above), which is perfectly fine.
HOW DO WE SHARE THE DATA WE COLLECT?
We never share your personal or personally identifiable information, unless by law. We may share aggregate in
HOW DO WE MAKE CHANGES TO THIS POLICY?
We may update this policy throughout the process, and if we do we’ll post any changes. If you continue to follow our project you agree to the revised policy. If the changes are significant, we provide more prominent notice or obtain your consent as required by law.
