Guiding Principles

Avoiding data-collection and limiting collected data: We follow best current practices in limiting the amount of personally identifiable information (in the following, PII) our services collect. All data we do have to collect is only stored as long as this is necessary to provide our service, or as long as otherwise legally mandated.

Your Rights: Information, Correction, Complaint, Locking and Deletion

The GDPR, or “Datenschutz-Grundverordnung” as the applicable German implementation, guarantees you certain rights which you as a user–given appropriate legal basis–can invoke versus us.

Art. 15 DS-GVO – Right to be informed

Your have the right to demand a confirmation on whether we do or did process your PII. If we did process PII connected to your person, you have the right to be informed which PII we processed, as well as for why we did process this data, and in which way we processed it.

Art. 16 DS-GVO – Right to correction

You have the right to demand the immediate correction of incorrectly stored PII. Under consideration of the reason of processing of the collected PII, you also have the right to demand the completion of incomplete datasets, which also includes demanding additional annotations.

Art. 17 DS-GVO – Right to deletion

You have the right to demand the immediate deletion of all PII related to your person. If a deletion is not possible, the right to limit processing, see below, applies.

Art. 18 DS-GVO – Right to limit processing

You have the right to demand to limit the processing of your PII.

Art. 20 DS-GVO – Right to portability

You have the right, given PII processing takes place based on an explicit agreement or to fulfill a contract, to receive all data you provided to us in a structured, common, and machine readable format. You have the right to directly transfer this data to another service provider without our interference as long as this is technically feasible.

Art. 21 DS-GVO – Right to objection

You have the right to object to our processing of your PII, if this processing takes place for our own justified interests, serves the fulfillment of public interests, or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

If you object to processing, your PII will no longer be processed, except if we do offer protected reasons for the processing of this data that outweigh you rights and interests, or if the processing is necessary to claim, exercise, or defend legal claims.

Please note that we have to verify your identity to exercise before implementing your requests and this policy. Please send your inquiries to abuse@measurement.network and we will handle your requests within four weeks. Please do not send copies of legal documents, passports, or other identification cards along with these mails.

We process your data for services under measurement.network based on the following grounds:

  • Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a EU-Datenschutzgrundverordnung (DSGVO): If we collected your consent to process this data;
  • Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. b EU-Datenschutzgrundverordnung (DSGVO): If we collected PII to fulfill a contract or agreement;
  • Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. c EU-Datenschutzgrundverordnung (DSGVO): If we are legally required to collect this PII;
  • Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f EU-Datenschutzgrundverordnung (DSGVO): If we need to collect this data to fulfill the legitimate interests of the service we provide, or a third party. In these cases, you interests, basic rights, and basic freedoms must not outweigh these legitimate interests.

If PII is processed based on Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. a or f you can object to processing of your data at any time.

Note on requests for data deletion: A legal obligation to preserve certain PII exists in some cases, for example, for financial documentation, but also for claiming or defending legal claims for compensation of damages. Even in the event of a deletion request we will store such data up until the legally obligated limits, in case such limits apply.

Development Systems

We are operating several development systems. These systems, and all data stored on them, are decommissioned and completely erased as soon as the associated testing procedures have been concluded. In general, we ask you not to attempt to use any development systems hosted under measurement.network, even though some may allow users to self-register. These systems are, generally, in the process of being audited and evaluated, including identifying which PII is being collected by these tools.

Currently active development systems include:
