The Spectrum Project (“We”, “us”, “our”) is committed to protecting your privacy. This privacy notice explains why we collect personal data, which information we have access to, how we collect and disclose the data, and how we protect your data. We will use or process your personal data only in accordance with the GDPR.

Some data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This data is primarily technical data such as the browser and operating system you are using or when you accessed the page. The data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
Part of the data is collected to ensure the proper functioning of the website. Other data can be used to analyze how visitors use the site.
You have the right to have data which we process based on your consent or in fulfillment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.

You also have the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted.

To make this Website work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a service which transmits website traffic data to Google servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage. For more information, please read the article about Google Analytics Cookie Usage on Websites.
The website also stores a permanent authentication cookie (ci_auth) on your device while you are logged in to your account. This cookie is required; by disabling it you would not be able to sign in and manage your account.
The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and the pattern data is fully under our control. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here.
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer, and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed.
