Data Protection

Data Protection general

Protecting personal data has high priority for GIZ. We therefore wish to inform you below about the personal data we store and how we use it.
For statistical purposes and to improve our service, this website uses technology provided by the company Piwik, which evaluates and then deletes data. No other use is made of the data, and the data are not passed on to third parties.

Web analytics opt-out feature (using an iFrame)

Below, visitors can “opt-out” being tracked by the Piwik server. By default, all of the website visitors are tracked, but if you opt-out by clicking on the iframe link, a cookie ‘piwik_ignore’ will be set. All visitors with a piwik_ignore cookie will not be tracked.

Every time you visit a page on the GIZ website and every time you download a file, information about the activity is processed and stored in a temporary protocol file. Before it is stored, each data set is rendered anonymous by altering the IP address.
The following information is stored for each page you view and each file you download:

  • Technical details of the browser used
  • Anonymous IP address
  • Date and time
  • Page opened/name of the file downloaded
  • Quantity of data transferred
  • Notification of whether viewing or download was successful

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 behavior.

You may at any time lodge an objection to the storage of your anonymously collected visitor data, so that these will no longer be collected in future. Please send an email to: simone.dettling@giz.de or achim.deuchert@giz.de
