Data security on the GACCPHL web site
The GACCPHL respects the security requirements for personal data. The following explains how the GACCPHL 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 GACCPHL, for instance, to order a publication.

Use and dissemination of personal data
The GACCPHL 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 GACCPHL will not provide your personal data to third parties or use it for any other purposes. GACCPHL employees are committed to confidentiality.

You are free to decide what information you want to make available to the GACCPHL. 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 GACCPHL to correct or update the information.

Automatically collected data
When you go to a GACCPHL 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.

It also enables us to recognize your computer automatically when the GACCPHL 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 GACCPHL website without cookies.

Security
The GACCPHL 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.
