Governance

EarthServer is an open community of large-scale Earth data providers, including research centers, supercomputing centers, companies, agencies. All EarthServer members contribute jointly to the single common information space for multi-dimensional spatio-temporal Earth data which EarthServer offers as a single point of Earth data and services.

Currently, the EarthServer Charter is being established for discussion and, upon agreement, adoption by the EarthServer community. Goal is to retain full autonomy of every participant while providing a fair, open, usable contribution valuable to the EarthServer users.

German Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

The controller responsible for the described data collection and processing is Jacobs University. Our data protection officer, Prof. Dr. Peter Baumann, will be happy to provide you with information or suggestions on the topic of data protection.

When you visit our website, the Web server temporarily stores usage information on our server machine (running in Germany) for statistical purposes in the form of a log in order to improve the quality of our website and to fulfill funding agency statistics reporting obligations.

We do not transfer your personal data to third parties without your express consent. We use revolvermaps for determining the city of visitors (nothing beyond this anonymized information is available); see their privacy statement which, at the time we evaluated it, obviously was in accordance with GDPR.

When it comes to processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you certain rights as a website user:

  • Right of Access (Art. 15 of the GDPR): You have the right to request confirmation as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed; where this is the case, you have a right of access to this personal data and to the information specified in Article 15 of the GDPR.
  • Right to Rectification and Right to Erasure (Art. 16 and 17 of the GDPR): You have the right to immediately request the rectification of incorrect personal data concerning you and, if necessary, the completion of incomplete personal data. You also have the right to request that personal data concerning you be erased immediately if one of the reasons listed in Art. 17 of the GDPR applies in detail, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected.
  • Right to Restriction of Processing (Art. 18 of the GDPR): You have the right to request a restriction of processing for the duration of a review if any of the conditions specified in Art. 18 of the GDPR have been met, e.g. if you have lodged an objection to the processing.
  • Right to Data Portability (Art. 20 of the GDPR): In certain cases (which are outlined in detail in Article 20 of the GDPR), you have the right to obtain from us your personal data in a structured, standard, machine-readable format or to request the transfer of such data to a third party.
  • Right to Object (Art. 21 of the GDPR): If data is collected on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR (data processing on the grounds of legitimate interests), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. If you make such an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.
  • Right to Lodge a Complaint with a Supervisory Authority In accordance with Art. 77 of the GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your personal data violates data protection regulations. This right to lodge a complaint may particularly be exercised before a supervisory authority in the EU member state where you reside, work, or where you suspect that your rights have been infringed.
