III. Processing of personal data by NABU
Below we would like to give you an overview of how we ensure the protection of your personal data when accessing our website and which types of personal data we process for which purposes and to what extent.
1. Processing of data when accessing our website – Log files
When you access our website, general information is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and the like. In addition, the IP address is transmitted and used to offer the service you have requested. This information is technically necessary for the correct delivery of content requested by you from websites and is mandatory when using the internet.
This log file data is anonymised by us immediately after the end of the usage process or stored for a period 190 days in order to recognise and analyse any attacks against our website, after which it is deleted. Legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
2. Processing of data when using the website – your enquiries
If you send us an inquiry by e-mail to the contact details provided, we process your data for the processing and response to your request. We store this information for verification purposes over a period of up to two years, if necessary, under certain circumstances up to eleven years. Legal basis for data processing Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.
3. Possible recipients of your data
Your data will not be sold to third parties.
Possible recipients are our project partners named on the website, for instance in order to answer your inquires.
Recipients of the data may be technical service providers who, in our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, act as contract processors for the operation, maintenance and, if applicable, the expansion of our website. Here an access to your data can be possible; therefore all service providers are contractually obligated to the adherence to the data security. Should this access exceptionally take place beyond the European Economic Area, appropriate data protection guarantees will be provided.
On our website you will find links to other websites, services and platforms, such as our Twitter Accout or websites of project partners. If you are redirected to these websites, services and platforms by clicking on these links or icons, their operators might receive some of your data. You will find information on this in the respective data protection declarations on the websites, services and platforms.
IV Integration of external services
Our website uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal and stored by your browser. They serve to make our offers more user-friendly, more effective and safer. We use so-called temporary cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser ("session cookies"), as well as persistent (permanent) cookies.
You can make changes in your browser settings. You can choose whether you want to accept all cookies, be informed when cookies are set or reject all cookies. If you choose the latter option, it is possible that you may not be able to make full use of our services, e.g. your learning progress will not necessarily be saved.
When cookies are used, a distinction must be made between the mandatory cookies and those required for further purposes (measurement of access figures, advertising purposes).
2. Mandatory required cookies when using the website
We use session cookies on our websites, which are absolutely necessary for the use of our websites. This includes cookies that enable us to recognize you while you are visiting the site during a single session. These session cookies contribute to the safe and user-friendly use of our services by, for example, temporarily storing the learning progress achieved.
No tracking cookies or other cookies that need your consent are used.
VI Notes on ensuring data security
We take technical and operational security precautions on our pages in order to protect the personal data stored with us against access by third parties, loss or misuse and to enable secure data transfer. In order to protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (certified SSL) via HTTPS.
We must point out that due to the structure of the internet, unwanted data access by third parties may occur. It is therefore also your responsibility to protect your data against misuse by encryption or other means. Without appropriate protective measures, unencrypted data in particular can be read by third parties, even if this is done by e-mail.
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. Your renewed visit will then be subject to the new data protection declaration.
