The Belvedere processes personal data when you use this website and when you contact us personally, electronically, by telephone, or by post. This is done in accordance with the legal requirements of the Austrian Federal Act concerning the Protection of Personal Data (DSG) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as amended from time to time.
A content management system (CRM) is provided for the purpose of managing and reviewing submissions (peer review). Authors, reviewers, and editors receive a user account for this purpose. The responsible party or the data processor processes your master data, user name and password (encrypted), e-mail address, role, assigned articles, review result, log files in accordance with your consent (author) or on the basis of an agreement (reviewer, editor). If you have given your consent, you can revoke it at any time using the contact details provided. Deletions in CRM will be carried out within the scope of technical possibilities.
If you send us your submission, you agree to the processing of your personal data (master data, if applicable ORCID-iD, contact data, submissions, results of the peer review, download statistics, communication history) for the purpose of collection, review and publication on the website https://journals.ub.uni-heidelberg.de/index.php/brj/. Your data will be passed on to third parties (reviewers, editors) for the purpose of the peer review process and to the Heidelberg University Library for archiving. You can revoke your consent at any time using the contact details provided. Information in print media already published cannot be deleted. Deletions on the website or social media channels will be carried out within the scope of technical feasibility.
However, we reserve the right to archive data for submission and the review processes indefinitely due to our legitimate interest in scholar quality assurance, compliance with strict scholar standards, and traceability of the review process and any associated decisions.
