The security and privacy of your data is our highest priority. Within the EMPOWERING project, we comply with all statutory EU legislations. Thanks to the principle of “Privacy by design”, the data transferred for analysis are encoded and anonymised, assuring that individual consumers cannot be recognised outside the utility.
Privacy by design
The EMPOWERING information system makes use of the principle of “Privacy by Design”. This means that privacy is directly embedded into the design and architecture of IT systems. The Privacy by Design principle delivers a maximum degree of privacy by ensuring that personal data are automatically protected. No personal data are sent out. All data are sent and received by a unique ID. For e.g. weather comparisons, we will ask for a ZIP-code instead of the exact location.
