Storage: (A) Traffic data is not stored. (B) Security log data (e.g. when the software identifies an “incident”) are deleted within 6 months, unless there is a particular reason to keep information for a longer period of time (e.g. individual IP addresses are blocked).
Legal Basis: (A) Your consent to receive our page and (B) our legitimate interests (for security reasons we process personal information, IP addresses, on this page) in maintaining the security of our page and fulfilling our legal duty to keep the page secure.

(2) Additional processing when you become a supporting member and use https://support.noyb.eu

In brief: In addition to the processing described under (1), we process the data that is necessary for managing your noyb membership, such as administering payments and mailings.
More Details: If you become a supporting member, we store the data you have provided in the online forms. We generate a member ID number once you join. We are also legally required to generate a timestamp recording when you join 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 not complete the sign-up process (“timeout”). If you become a noyb member, your information is kept for the duration of your membership and you can change it at any time by logging in on https://support.noyb.eu/. If you terminate your membership, we may need to continue storing some information if we are subject to a legal obligation that requires this (e.g. accounting provisions require 7 years of bookkeeping, but there may be other unforeseen duties), or for exceptional legitimate interests (e.g. if you file a legal claim against us).
Legal Basis: In order to enter into and continue performing the contract between our members and us, legal obligations resulting from your membership, and our 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).

Our bank (Erste Bank, for SEPA payments) and the postal service (to send you a welcome gift) needs to receive the relevant information to perform their tasks.

Drupal CMS by Acolono for noyb.eu

This website runs on Drupal, one of the leading Open Source CMS worldwide. With more than 1,000,000 developers worldwide contributing — including a large professional service provider ecosystem — Drupal is one of the most secure and stable platforms on the market.

We have chosen Drupal because of its impressive built-in multilingual capabilities, its advanced security and performance features and its active local community. The Austrian Drupal agency acolono GmbH was therefore the perfect partner. Acolono is very active in the local Drupal association and helped organize multiple Drupal conferences and the Open Minds Award.
