IDEA respects your Privacy
Protection of your privacy in the processing of your personal data is an important concern to which
we pay special attention. Personal data collected during visits to our websites are processed by us
confidentially and according to the legal provisions. Data protection and Information security are

covered by this privacy statement.

Collection and Processing of Personal Data
When you visit our web pages our web server automatically records the name of your internet

the preferences of our visitors and optimize our websites accordingly. You can reset your browser
either to notify you when you receive a cookie, or to refuse to accept cookies. Please note that
certain areas of most websites may not function properly if you reject a cookie.
Additional personal data is only stored if volunteered by you, for example in context of a registration,
a survey or other activities.

Use and Disclosure of Personal Data and Purpose Specification
IDEA will use your personal data for the sole purpose of technical administration of the websites,
only to the extent necessary in each specific case. Your personal data will not be disclosed to third
parties outside the IDEA-Project without your consent.

IDEA uses security measures in order to protect the data we have under our control against
manipulation, loss, destruction, access by unauthorized persons or against unauthorized disclosure.
Our security procedures are adjusted accordingly to new technology.
