Data Protection

Piwik web analytics and user tracking “privacy compliant”

For statistical purposes and to improve our service, this website uses Piwik in highest compliance with the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), for analysing the website traffic and for tracking user actions, such as downloads or links clicked.

Automatically anonymised visitor IPs

By default, Piwik stores any visitors IP address in the database for each new visitor. If a user has a static IP address this means his browsing history could be easily tracked across several days and even across websites tracked within the same Piwik server.

To ensure that the visitors IP is not stored, which is Personally Identifiable Information (PII), IP anonymisation is enabled, with at least 2 bytes masked from the IP.

Deletion of old visitors logs

Piwik is configured to automatically delete the older logs from the database. For privacy reasons, we keep the detailed Piwik logs for only 3 to 6 months and delete older log data.

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.

The rights of the data subject

You are entitled to enquire about your personal data and its processing, to have the data corrected if necessary, and 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 (datenschutzbeauftragter@giz.de). 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).
