Introduction and terms
The operation of our website www.scalehub.com and
event.scalehub.com (in the following both also “website”) involves the processing of personal data.
“Personal data” is all information relating to an identified or identifiable person (Art. 4 Par. 1 of the GDPR). Details of an identified person could be their name or e-mail address.
However, data can also be described as personal if, despite the fact that a person’s identity cannot be deduced directly from the data, their identity can nonetheless be deduced by combining the data with other information.
A person could, for example, be identified via their address or bank details, date of birth, username, IP address or location details. The key point is that any information that can be used in any way to identify a person can be described as personal data.
Under Art. 4 Par. 2 of the GDPR, “processing” describes any process applied to personal data. This especially includes the collection, capture, administration, classification, recording, amendment, printing, making available, use, disclosure, sharing, dissemination, provision, comparison, linking, restriction, erasure or destruction of personal data.
