WEBKNOSSOS is a team-based open-source tool for exploring and collaboratively annotating 3D image datasets. Viewing datasets is possible without a registration. However, if users want to create annotations or perform any other changes to the system, they need to have a registered account. Personal data is processed in WEBKNOSSOS. This privacy statement describes the data that is processed, the rights data subjects have, what external services are used and other privacy-related information.

In order to provide the WEBKNOSSOS application, several external services are used. Some personal data of users may be transmitted to these services as described below.
For registered users we store and process the following pieces of personal data:
● First/Last name● Email address● Organization affiliation● Encrypted password● Activity times● Application configurations
This data is attached to the user's account. It is used to identify the annotation data that was created by the user and for administrative purposes. The legal basis is user consent (upon signup).
Registered users may participate in discussions on the WEBKNOSSOS support platform. Posts and replies that they make there are visible to other webKnossos users (also from other WEBKNOSSOS instances). Their posts and replies may be removed at any time.
Registered users may choose to publish datasets or annotations they have created or uploaded or are maintaining. This data will then be publicly available to everybody on the internet. Personal data such as name, email address and organization affiliation may be made public as well in order to provide the attribution that is common within the scientific community. Users may unpublish their work at any time.
For scientific purposes, it may be required to retain personal information in order to provide attribution and accountability.
We do not sell, trade, share, or rent the personal data collected from our Service to third parties other than as outlined in this policy.
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Are we subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR.
The processor has implemented a number of technological and organizational measures in order to maintain the safety and integrity of your data.

More information on the use of Google Analytics
For the web analytics through Google Analytics the processor uses the option "anonymizeIp". By means of this option, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymized when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use to the application and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
