These data are subject to the applicable data protection rules. Users can create a user account by self-registration. The login data include a username and password, which must be set within the registration process.
Users have the right to be informed, without charge, about stored personal information upon written request.
Personal information is not passed on to third parties other than those involved in providing and maintaining the learning platform. An exception exists when users have explicitly permitted disclosure of their data or when disclosure is necessary because of legal regulations.

Users may delete their account through the Settings function within the platform or by emailing the provider at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Manual deletion of user accounts during the project results in anonymization and sanitization of all personal data, while statistical user data remains stored for further fulfillment of project-related performance and success monitoring. This data does not allow any subsequent or retroactive identification of the deleted user.
Personal information is stored for the lifetime of the Girls Go Circular project. After the project’s end it is permanently deleted.

Cookies (short text information) are used in Moodle Workplace in two forms:
- Moodle Session: This cookie is necessary for the login to persist when different pages of the Moodle Workplace platform are accessed. This cookie is deleted as soon as the cache of the user’s web browser is deleted or the user logs out of the Moodle Workplace platform. Usage of this cookie is mandatory.
- Moodle Tenant: if this cookie is used, the tenant information affiliated with the user is saved upon first usage and is saved on the Moodle Workplace platform even after logout. Usage of this cookie is mandatory.
- Embedded video content from YouTube: embedded videos from YouTube use tracking cookies which transfer data to YouTube/Google. Usage of this cookie is mandatory to ensure accessibility functions (subtitles). Further information provided below.
Use of embedded YouTube videos
This website uses embedded video content from YouTube, a service belonging to Google. YouTube videos are embedded in the courses for educational purposes to enrich the content which is the legitimate interest of this platform’s provider in accordance with the legal basis set out in Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.
The embedded YouTube videos are equipped with subtitles for all languages other than English to make them easily accessible to the target group. Subtitles are displayed as an overlay of the video container. For the realisation of this functionality, a privacy-friendly embedding via YouTube's Privacy-Enhanced Mode (use of no cookie domain) is not possible.
If you open a page with an embedded video, a connection is made to the YouTube servers. At this point YouTube is notified which of our pages you have visited. Google will process and save various data (IP address, our platform’s page on which the video is embedded, etc.). If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube may assign your surfing habits to your personal profile. You can only prevent this if you log out of your YouTube account before viewing the video. The provider of this platform has no influence on the transfer of these data.
YouTube videos are embedded with the purpose of making our website more attractive.
