This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator, Institute Water for Africa e.V., in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act.
The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. As far as on our sides personal data (for example name, address or e-mail addresses) are raised, this takes place, as far as possible, always on voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
The website uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
This website uses Google Fonts. This will transfer data from your browser or device to Google. This includes your IP address. The IP address is a personal feature like your name. This enables Google to process your IP address and track your surfing behaviour and process the data obtained from it.
The provider of this website stores data in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits. In addition to the IP address these are
- Browser type and browser version
- operating system used
- referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
The IP address is partially anonymized by the provider, i.e., the last three digits of the IP address are made unrecognizable (e.g. abc.abc.abc.xxx). This means that the IP address loses its personal reference. Identification is no longer possible. It is no longer a personal date.
We reserve the right to check these data subsequently if we become aware of concrete indications of an illegal use.
Right to information, deletion, blocking
You have the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing as well as a right to correction, blocking or deletion of these data at any time. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint if you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.
Contradiction advertising mails
We herewith object to the use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation to send unsolicited advertising and information material. The operators of these pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising information being sent, for example by SPAM emails.
