What personal data we collect and why we collect it
Purpose of data processing
We collect personal data for sending out the NIMA newsletter, to run and optimize the NIMA website. Our webserver for our website is hosted by Alfahosting GmbH, Ankerstraße 3b, D-06108 Halle (Saale), Germany. Every time you access our websites your browser automatically transfers specific information to our webserver. This includes information on your browser type, your operating system, your IP address, as well as the date and time of the page view that you visited. This data serves the purpose of system security, statistics and the technical and content administration of our website. Any data collected is directly anonymized. We only process personalized data (IP-address) if it is required for the secure running of the website. This data will neither be assigned to a specific person nor consolidated with other data sources. Your personal data (i.e. name, email address, IP address) will only be collected in case you deliberately and voluntarily submit such information, for example as part of the newsletter subscription, and will only be used for the pre-assigned purpose.
We use WordPress (WordPress.org) for creating and publishing our website.
Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow it). It enables the site’s or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information.
