About Human Rights Monitor

The Human Rights Monitor (HRM) is an independent, international non-profit project promoting human rights through documentation and advocacy. HRM is based in Europe and active since 2022. We are achieving our vision by documenting violations; researching institutional, social and political contexts that affect rights protection and peace; and sharing the conclusions of evidence-based monitoring work.

Our team members are based in and outside the European Union. Locally, in the contexts we monitor, we are collaborating closely with civil society organisations, churches, lawyers, human rights defenders, and journalists to verify information. Internationally, we partner with organisations such as the World Council of Churches on individual conflict and human rights situations. HRM works with international human rights mechanisms such as the United Nations Human Rights Council for the promotion of rights.

Liability for content

As a non-profit service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages in accordance with general legislation pursuant to Section 7 Paragraph 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG). However, according to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we are not obliged as a service provider to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general laws remain unaffected by this. However, liability in this regard is only possible from the point in time at which a concrete infringement of the law becomes known. If we become aware of any such infringements, we will remove the relevant content immediately.

Liability for links

Our website contains links to external websites of third parties over whose content we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognisable at the time of linking. However, permanent monitoring of the content of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete indications of a legal violation. If we become aware of any infringements of the law, we will remove such links immediately.

Data Privacy Notice

We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting your personal data. This Privacy Notice aims to inform you about how we handle your personal data as per the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), also known as Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (DSGVO) in Germany.

1. Data Processing on our Website

You can generally use our website without providing any personal data. If you contact us directly, for example via email, the personal data transmitted by you (such as your email address) is stored for the purpose of processing your inquiries or for possible follow-up questions.

2. Data Security

We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational security measures designed to protect your personal data against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure, unauthorized access, and other unlawful or unauthorized forms of processing, in accordance with applicable law.

3. Data Subject Rights

As a data subject, you have the right to access, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, data portability, and objection. You can assert these rights at any time by contacting us at our provided contact information. If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection claims have been violated in another way, you can lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.

4. Amendments to this Privacy Notice

We may update this Privacy Notice from time to time in response to changing legal, technical or business developments. When we update our Privacy Notice, we will take appropriate measures to inform you, consistent with the significance of the changes we make.

5. Newsletter and Mailchimp

We offer a newsletter in which we inform you about our latest news. If you would like to subscribe, you will need to provide a valid email address. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it and to the described procedures.

We use MailChimp to send our newsletter. MailChimp is a service provided by The Rocket Science Group, LLC, which is based in the United States. MailChimp offers detailed insight into its features and the data it collects on its website. MailChimp is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield, which ensures compliance with the level of data protection in the EU.

When you sign up for our newsletter, the data you provide during the newsletter registration (like your email address) is transferred to MailChimp and stored by MailChimp. After registration, MailChimp will send you an email to confirm your subscription.

MailChimp also offers various analytics options on how the sent newsletters are opened and used, e.g., to how many users an email was sent, whether emails were rejected, and whether users unsubscribed from the list after receiving an email. However, these analyses are only group-related and are not used by us for individual evaluation. MailChimp also uses the analytics tool Google Analytics and may include it in the newsletters.

More detailed information about MailChimp and data protection at MailChimp can be found in MailChimp’s privacy policy at https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.

You can cancel the newsletter subscription, i.e., revoke your consent, at any time. This revokes your consent to its shipment via MailChimp and the statistical analyses by MailChimp. Unfortunately, a separate revocation of the shipment via MailChimp or the statistical evaluation is not possible. A link to cancel the newsletter can be found at the end of each newsletter.
