Dear parents and legal guardians

The International Commission for the Protection of the Rhine takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. This website particularly conceived for children can thus be used without indicating any personal data. Apart from indications concerning the age of the user, the language used and answers to the quiz on the Rhine, no further indications are possible.

You may of course assert any rights you have related to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) for your wards.

Please be aware that data transfer via the internet (e.g. during email communication) is not necessarily coded. In such cases, no seamless protection of data against access by third parties is possible.
