  • Technical details of the browser used
  • Anonymous IP address
  • Date and time
  • Page opened/name of the file downloaded
  • Quantity of data transferred
  • Notification of whether viewing or download was successful

Temporary session cookies are used each time you view an individual page, to make navigation easier. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in your browser cache. Session cookies do not include any personal data and expire at the end of each session, or after the completion of a user survey, which is conducted as a rule every two years.

We do not use methods such as Java applets or ActiveX controls that make it possible to track your browsing behaviour.

The procession of data will be conducted according to Art. 6 (1) (f) EU-GDPR for the purposes of the legitimate interests of website analytics to improve the website.

You may at any time lodge an objection to the storage of your anonymously collected visitor data, so that these will no longer be collected in future. Please click on the link at the bottom of this page to be excluded from counting.

Processing of personal data when applying to the scholarship opportunity via the online form

If you apply to the scholarship opportunity, the information you provide in the online form, including your contact details, will be stored for the purpose of processing your application.

The uploaded form is used exclusively to ensure that you have officially made an application to the scholarship opportunity, and that you comply with our application criteria that your details will be stored only in our internal application management. Personal details such as your name and position will not be published on our website, unless you actively agree to it for the purpose of quoting your lessons learned from the Leadership and Diversity Program if your application is successful.

The legal basis for the processing is consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 a) DSGVO.

The data will only be used for the purposes described in this statement; any other use will always be subject to renewed consent.
The InsuResilience, under the Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH secures the data by appropriate technical and organisational measures against accidental or intentional falsification, destruction, loss or access by unauthorised persons.
The data will not be forwarded to third parties.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is thus based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can withdraw this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
