Legal basis for processing personal data
As an Interreg project, one of the tasks contractually agreed upon with Interreg Germany-Danmark is to inform project and network partners, external interested parties and the general public about the contents and results of the project. For this purpose we operate this website
The processing of the data collected on these pages for the aforementioned purposes is carried out in accordance with Article 6 (1b) of the GDPR, which permits the processing of data in order to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual measures. Additionally, the processing of your data in connection with the sending of newsletters and mailings (see below for details) is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1a) of the GDPR, which permits the processing of data if you, as the affected party, have given your consent to the processing of the personal data concerning you for one or more specific purposes.

What data does the provider collect and why?
This website is hosted by the provider Webgo and created and maintained by the content management system Contao. When visiting a site hosted by Webgo, server log files are created by the provider. These log files and the therein contained personal data are necessary to be able to sustain server operation or to analyse and shut down harmful activities.
The only personal data Webgo collects from you as a visitor is the IP-address. This IP address is stored by the provider in the access and error log files of the web server for seven days and then automatically anonymized after seven days are up so that it can no longer be assigned to a specific person.
In addition, the provider automatically collects and stores the following data, which are not personally identifiable and do not allow any indication of the identity of the user:

  • Type and version of web browser
  • Utilised operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request

This data will not be merged with other data sources.


Newsletter & MailChimp
As an Interreg project, it is our job to inform project and network partners, external interested parties and the public about the content and results of the project. We do this, among other things, with the help of our newsletter and short mailings, e.g. to project events. The newsletter is published approximately twice a year. The frequency depends on the topics and developments in the project.

We use MailChimp to create and send our newsletters and mailings. MailChimp is a shipping service provider for marketing services such as Email campaigns and marketing platforms of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE # 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. You can view the data protection regulations of the shipping service provider here:


The Rocket Science Group LLC d / b / a MailChimp is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus guarantees compliance with the European data protection level


The Syddansk Universitet has in accordance with MailChimp. Art. 28 para. 3 GDPR concluded a data processing contract that guarantees that the data processing by MailChimp is carried out in accordance with the data protection regulation. MailChimp is therefore a processor for the SDU within the meaning of Article 4, Paragraph 8 of the GDPR.


On the ACCESS & ACCELERATION page you will find a form for signing up for newsletters and mailings. After registering, you will receive a so-called double opt-in email, in which you will be asked to confirm the registration. You can object to receiving the newsletter / mailings at any time (so-called opt-out). An unsubscribe link and a link to change the data already left can be found at the end of each newsletter or mailing as well as in the double opt-in email.


MailChimp saves the email address you provided, your name and your language preferences as well as your IP address when you register for the newsletter or change your data. This is done to ensure that the newsletter is sent without errors. The collection of the name is optional and is done so that we can personalize the mailings to the recipients. MailChimp also uses the email address to carry out a success measurement in a statistical evaluation. These statistics are not pseudonymized, i.e. it is possible for us to see for each individual email address when the person concerned opened the newsletter and when they clicked on which links. By subscribing to the newsletter, you not only agree to receive the newsletter, but also to the type of data processing just described by MailChimp. We will not pass on or sell the data collected to third parties.
