Data protection declaration
Thank you for visiting our website. We are delighted that you are interested in the euBusinessGraph project and our website. Protecting your personal data is important to us. This data protection declaration sets out the method, extent and purpose of our collection, processing and use of your personal data.

Basic principles
We collect, process and use your personal data in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations. Personal data refers to all individual pieces of information about personal or factual details of a particular or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your name, your address, your e-mail address and your telephone number.

Scope of data collection, processing and use
When you call up our web pages, we are provided with access data, which is saved for security purposes and generally enables identification: this includes the name of the web pages retrieved, the date and time of the retrieval, the volume of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, the browser type and version, the user’s operating system, the referrer URL (the previous page visited) and the requesting provider. We evaluate this data (known as the “click path”), and it enables us to optimise our Internet presence and tailor the content to you.

Merely to visit our Website, it is not necessary for you to provide us with any personal data (such as your name or your e-mail address). If you provide us with personal data, we collect, process and use this information only for the purposes of providing the website and the services available on the website.

Personal data is only shared with public authorities and government institutions when this is stipulated by law, or when we are forced to do so by a court of law. Our staff and any service providers we work with are bound to confidentiality and to observing the applicable data protection regulations.

For this purpose, the usage information generated by the cookie (including your truncated IP address) is transmitted to our server and stored for analysis.

Social plug-ins

These social plug-ins enable you to share information on our website using Twitter or to follow us on Twitter. When you call up a page that contains one of these social plug-ins, your browser establishes a connection with the Twitter servers.

Twitter may be able to track your visit to our website and associate it with a Twitter account. When you click on the button, your browser transfers corresponding information directly to Twitter, and we are unable to influence this.
