We take the protection of data privacy seriously
The protection of your privacy in the processing of personal data is important to us. When you visit our website (www.tiaft.org), our web servers will by default save the IP of your Internet Service Provider, the website from which you visit us, the web pages you visit as well as the date and the duration of your visit. This information is necessary for the technical transmission of the websites and the reliable server operation. A personalised evaluation of these data does not take place.
If you send us data via a contact form, these data will be saved on our servers in the course of the data backup. We will use your data exclusively for the processing of your request. Your data will be treated as strictly confidential. It will not be disclosed to a third party.
Personal data are data about your person. They include your name and your e-mail address. You do not have to disclose any personal data in order to be able to visit our website. In some cases, we will require your name and address as well as other information in order to be able to offer you the requested service.
The same applies in case that you want to receive information material or if we answer your requests. In these cases, we will always point this out. We will only save the data that you have automatically or voluntarily sent to us.
If you use one of our services, we will usually only collect the data required to offer you our service. We might ask you for additional information which are, however, of a voluntary nature. Whenever we process personal data, we do this so we can offer you our service or to pursue our commercial goals.
Automatically saved non-personal data
When you visit our websites, we save certain information for administrative and technical reasons. These are the following: Type and version of the browser used, data and time of day of the visit as well as the IP address.
These data will be anonymised and used only for statistical purposes or to improve our Internet and online services.
These anonymised data will be - separate from the personal data - saved on secure systems and can not be assigned to any individual person. This means that your personal data are protected at all times.
Only the protocol address is saved in the process – no other personal data. The information saved in the cookies makes it possible to automatically recognize you during the next visit, which makes it easier for you to use it.
Google Analytics with Anonymisation Function
On our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google". Google-Analytics uses so-called "cookies“, text files that are saved on your computer allowing for an analysis of your visit to the website.
The information provided by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your visit including your IP address, will be sent to Google in the USA and saved at this location.
On our website, we use Google Analytics with the suffix "_gat._anonymizeIp". In this case, Google will already shorten and thus anonymise your IP address within the member states of the European Union or other signatories of the Agreement on the Economic Area.
Google uses this information to evaluate your visit to our website, to create reports for us about the website activities and to render additional services associated with the use of the website and Internet. Where appropriate, Google will also disclose this information to third parties if legally required or if a third party processes these data on behalf of Google.
Google will never link your IP address with other data from Google on its own account. You can prevent the installation of cookies with the corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case you won't be able to make full use of all the functions on our website.
If you visit our website using a mobile end device (smartphone or tablet), you must click on this link instead to prevent tracking by Google Analytics on this website in future. This is also possible as an alternative to the browser add-on mentioned above. By clicking the link, an opt-out cookie will be set in your browser that is only valid for this browser and this domain. If you delete cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie will be deleted as well, so you will have to click on the link again.
If you have agreed to have your web and app browser history linked to your Google account and that information from your Google account can be used to personalise your data, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data to create target group lists for remarketing purposes across devices. For this purpose, Google Analytics will first collect your Google-authenticated ID on our website which is then linked to your Google account (thus personal data). Google Analytics will then temporarily link your ID to your Google Analytics data in order to optimise our target groups.
If you don't agree with this, you can stop this by making the corresponding settings in the "My account" area of your Google account.
We have taken technical and administrative safety precautions to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All of our employees as well as service providers working for us are obligated to comply with the applicable data protection laws.
Whenever we collect and process personal data, they will be encrypted before their transmission. This means that your data can not be misused by a third party. Our safety precautions are constantly improved and our data protection statements are continuously revised. Please make sure that you have the latest version available.
