CONSTELLATORS INTERNATIONAL KG (“CI”)
is a company based and registered in Cologne, Germany, and is subject to German law.
CI has the legal form of a limited partnership.
The company operates the website https://constellators-international.com for the purpose of supporting people working with system constellations. “Supporting” means: Signed-up members can set up a basic profile for free. In this profile they inform about their name, the language they are working in, the places they work at, and the form of constellation work that they offer. CI leaves it up to the signed in members how much information they want to give. The free basic profile and later extended profile with all information of the International recognition is built with a structure of searchable information fields – that enables a search at the other end. Interested visitors who look for a constellator, can find them by the given search criteria.

The storage of the Email with Mailchimp si subject to the PP of INTUIT, the company that offers the Mailchimp service. Please read their PP here: https://www.intuit.com/privacy/statement/
In addition, we offer constellators the opportunity to set up their professional profile free of charge. To be able to set up a profile, they have to register with their first name, surname, and email address.
Through signing up, they become “CI Members”. With this status they can set up special interest groups, directly contact other members with the internal messenger tool and post their news and promotion for their constellation offers on the homepage of CI.
After registration, it is up to them what information they want to publish about themselves. The minimum requirement is that they upload a portrait pic and are identifiable as a constellator. “Identifiable as a constellator” means: One can see a portrait pic of the CI member and the filled-in profile shall inform about their form of constellation work. If they do not meet these minimum requirements, CI staff will advise them that the profile will be deleted after 3 months if the relevant minimum information is not provided.
CI staff do not access internal email content (or any content generated or shared as part of special interest groups unless authorized to do so by an account holder.
We do not make the login data publicly available, nor do we pass these data on to third parties.

When CI members upload images to the website, they should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
International Recognition Data
To apply for international recognition as constellatory or trainer, or for training, CI members have to fill in a questionnaire and send the filled-in form including certificates that prove their education to CI. A local team checks whether the given answers in the questionnaire can be proven by respectable certificates. In that case, the application of the CI user will be successful.
The CI Member receives a corresponding degree of recognition and in connection with this, the completed questionnaire (but not the certificates) is published in his profile, so that everyone (not only CI Members) can see the information about the respective qualification.
All data from this questionnaire are stored in our database. The international Recognition has to be actualized yearly. For the actualization, the CI Member opens the last version of the Questionnaire and actualizes it.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Ending the CI membership
If members want to delete their profile and by this end their membership, they can do that with one click within their personal account at the top right corner of the screen. By clicking on “delete profile”, the CI system will delete their profile including all data records that belong to this CI Member, and sends them a confirmation of this operation. To finally be deleted from our newsletter list, CI Members have to unsubscribe.
