Privacy Policy 

 

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

It’s simple: We provide you with this page, make sure it does not go offline and get an anonymous statistic to see if we succeeded in doing so.

Purpose: We process your personal data, to provide this page to you („transactional data” such as your IP address) and use it for ensuring the security of the page.
Storage: Transactional data is not stored. Security log data (e.g. when the software identifies an „incident“) are deleted within 14 days, unless there is an individual reason to keep information for a longer period of time (e.g. individual IP addresses are blocked).
Legal Basis: Your consent to send you the page you asked us for and 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”) – in this case our current hosting provider 1&1.
Third Country Transfers: None. We store your data within the EEA/EU.
Statistics: We run a statistics system that does not track personal data. Despite our system being only anonymous, we also respect „do not track“ requests and offer opt-out options here to exclude data on your visit from any kind of statistics.
Cookies: We do not store personal data in cookies. We may store your own page settings in non-personalized ways (e.g. your language settings).

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

It’s simple: We process the data that is necessary for managing your noyb membership (including thinks 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 under legal obligations (e.g. accounting provisions require 7 years of bookkeeping) or for legitimate interests (e.g. if you file a legal case 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”). Currently we e.g. use a hosting provider for the page (Hetzner).
Partners: If you choose to pay via credit card, you will be forwarded to a security 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).You can find the SIX privacy information here. Our bank (Erste Bank, for SEPA payments) or 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.
Cookies: We use a session cookie, to process your membership application. It is deleted when you close your browser. Other cookies are not containing personally identifiable data.

More Details: In addition to sending you an email, your email address may be processed so that our newsletter is not caught up in “spam” filters.
Purpose: Sending you our newsletter.
Storage:
Your data is removed from the mailing list when you cancel your subscription, but kept on a list of opt-outs. We remove these emails on a regular basis.
Legal Basis: Your consent for sending emails and our legitimate interest not to be listed as “spamers”.
Legitimate Interests: To not get blacklisted as “spam” we may block certain email addresses that our provider identified as problematic.
Recipients: None. We do not transfer your data to any other data controller.
