Privacy Policy

This privacy policy covers noyb.eu, support.noyb.eu and the noyb.eu Newsletters.

(1) When you browse our main page https://noyb.eu

It’s simple: We provide you with this page, make sure it stays secure and get an anonymous statistic to see if we succeeded in doing so.

Purpose: We process your personal data for two purposes: To (1) provide this page to you („transactional data” such as your IP address) and (2) use it for ensuring the security of the page.
Storage: (1) Transactional data is not stored. (2) Security log data (e.g. when the software identifies an „incident“) are deleted within 6 months, unless there is an individual reason to keep information for a longer period of time (e.g. individual IP addresses are blocked).
Legal Basis: (1) Your consent to receive our page and (2) our legitimate interests in security of our page.
Legitimate Interests: For security reasons we may process personal information (IP addresses) on this page.
Recipients: None. We do not share personal data with other controllers.
Processors: We only use trustworthy processors that only process your personal data on our behalf (“processors”) – our current hosting provider is Hetzner. The particular provider may be subject to changes over time.
Third Country Transfers: None. We store your data within the EEA/EU.
Cookies: We do not store personal data in cookies. We may store anonymous technical information in cookies (e.g. language settings).
Statistics: In addition to the processing above, we run a statistics system that does not process any personal data.

(2) In addition, when you become a supporting member and use https://support.noyb.eu

It’s simple: In addition to the processing described under (1), we process the data that is necessary for managing your noyb membership (including things like payments and mailings).

More Details: If you become a supporting member, we store the data you have provided in the forms. We generate a member ID number once you join. In addition we are legally required to generate a timestamp when you joined noyb as a member. If you join as a member we store your IP address for reasons of fraud prevention. We keep a record of any changes you make to your membership data to be able to manage the account. This data is only stored in order to manage your membership (the contract between us).

Purpose: The management of your membership and for regular updates via email.
Storage: All data is deleted, should you abort the sign-up process (“timeout”). If you become a noyb member, your information is kept as long as you are a member and you can change it at any time by logging in on
https://support.noyb.eu/. We may need to store information even after you have quit as a member if we fall under a legal obligation that requires this (accounting provisions require 7 years of bookkeeping, but there may also be other unforeseen duties) or for exceptional legitimate interests (e.g. if you file a legal claim against us).
Legal Basis: The contract between our members and us, to enter into this contract, legal obligations resulting from your membership and our legitimate interests.
Legitimate Interests: For reasons of fraud prevention we process personal information (IP addresses) and may process data in cases of legal disputes stemming from a membership.
Processors: We only use trustworthy processors that only process your personal data on our behalf (“processors”) – our current hosting provider is Hetzner. The particular provider may be subject to changes over time.
Payment Providers: If you choose to pay via credit card, you will be forwarded to a secure page of SIX Payment Services Austria GmbH and/or your payment provider that is not under our control (e.g. the 3D Secure Code form by your issuing bank).You can find the SIX privacy information
here. Our bank (Erste Bank, for SEPA payments) and the postal service (to send you a welcome gift) needs to get the relevant information to perform their tasks.
Other Recipients: None. We do not transfer your data to any other data controller.
Third Country Transfers: None. We store your data within the EEA/EU.
