Data security on the GACCNY web site
The GACCNY respects the security requirements for personal data. The following explains how the GACCNY handles personal data, what data is collected and how the data is used.

Collecting and processing personal data
Personal data represents information on your identity, e.g. your name, e-mail or mailing address. Such data is only stored if you make this information available to the GACCNY, for instance, to order a publication.

Use and dissemination of personal data
The GACCNY uses your personal data exclusively for technical purposes in the administration of the web pages. It provides the means for enabling your access to information as well as other communications with you. The GACCY will not provide your personal data to third parties or use it for any other purposes. GACCNY employees are committed to confidentiality.

You are free to decide what information you want to make available to the GACCNY. In case you choose not to furnish any information, you might be unable to access some contents of our website. If your personal data has changed, notify the GACCNY to correct or update the information.

Automatically collected data
When you go to a GACCNY web page, general data, which is not personal, is collected (what Internet browser is being used, number of visits, average duration of visit, what pages were brought up). This information, recorded automatically (thus not via registration), is used to develop a basis for making the site more attractive, enhancing its contents and functionality. In this instance, too, no further use or dissemination of your data takes place.

Cookies are small files temporarily stored on your hard drive. They are only intended to gather data on the use of the GACCNY website. It also enables us to recognize your computer automatically when the GACCNY website is accessed the next time. Because cookies do not contain personal data private information remains secure. Depending how it is set up, your browser accepts Internet cookies automatically. However, you can adjust your browser at any time and use the GACCNY website without cookies.

The GACCNY takes proper precautions to protect personal data from loss, destruction, forgery, manipulation and unauthorized access. It also takes the stipulations of the Federal Republic’s law on data protection into account.

Links to other websites
This declaration on data protection applies to the websites of the GACCNY. The websites may include links to information providers other than the GACCNY which are not covered by our data protection statement. Upon leaving the GACCNY website, we recommend reading the data protection guidelines of each website collecting personal data carefully.
