Website Analytics

The IBiS website does not draw on any services to analyse usage data. No data are stored, processed, or passed on to third parties.

Temporary session cookies are used each time you view an individual page, to make navigation easier. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in your browser cache. Session cookies do not include any personal data and expire at the end of each session.

We do not use methods such as Java applets or ActiveX controls that make it possible to track your browsing behaviour.

Contact forms
When you use the contact form, we process your name and email address. The data is processed based on Art. 6 paragraph 1 b) of the EU GDPR for the purpose of receiving the query formulated in the contact form.

Data is transmitted to GIZ using an SSL-encrypted connection, which makes it significantly more difficult for unauthorised persons to intercept it. Similarly to queries sent to GIZ by email, queries transmitted using the contact form are deleted following a 12-month retention period.

Other web pages
This website uses cookies, i.e. small files containing short texts for technical processing. Without cookies – in other words, for example, when cookies have been deactivated in the browser – full use of this website is not possible.

Recipients of personal data
• Data are not passed on to third parties
• As a general principle, data will not be transmitted to third states

Duration of data retention
Personal data are regularly deleted when:
• they are no longer needed for contractual purposes (e.g. for employment, top-ups, rental, sale or service contracts)
• when the individuals concerned have not given any separate authorisation
• when statutory data storage obligations and periods have expired.

Reference to user rights
You are entitled to:
• object to data processing
• enquire about your personal data and its processing
• have this corrected if necessary, or to request restriction of processing or the erasure of the data

The data will then be erased.

If you have any questions or complaints about this website, please contact the GIZ data protection officer (see contact information provided above). You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible data protection supervisory authority. The responsible authority in this case is the German Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI).
