Data processing is the responsibility of Access to Sustainable Energy Programme (ASEP).

ASEP only processes personal data to the extent necessary. Which data is required and processed for which purpose and on what basis is largely determined by the type of service you use or the purpose for which the data is required.

Collection of personal data when visiting our website

When visiting the ASEP website, the browser used automatically transmits data that is saved in a log file. ASEP itself processes only the data that is technically required in order to display the website correctly and to ensure its stability and security.

Each time the website is accessed, the data stored includes, but is not limited to, the page that is viewed, the IP address of the accessing device, the page from which the user was redirected, as well as the date and time of access.

The data in the log file is deleted after five days.

 

Cookies

When you visit the ASEP website, small text files known as ‘cookies’ are stored on your computer. They are used to make the online presence more user-friendly and effective overall. Cookies cannot run programs or infect your computer with viruses.

The ASEP website uses cookies that are automatically deleted as soon as the browser on which the page is displayed is closed (referred to as temporary cookies or session cookies) This type of cookie makes it possible to assign various requests from a browser to a session and to recognise the browser when the website is visited again (session ID).

 

Processing of personal data when contacting us

Phone

When contacting us by phone, personal data will be processed to the extent necessary in order to handle the enquiry.

The legal basis for the processing of data in connection with communication by phone is Article 6 (1) e GDPR.

 

Other online services

To access other ASEP online services, for example job offers or registering for training courses, it is necessary to enter personal data for further processing. The corresponding data privacy policies for the respective service apply.

Processing of personal data in connection with social network use

On its website, ASEP invites users to visit its company presence on social networking sites and platforms including, but not limited to, TwitterLinkedInYouTube and Facebook.

These online presences are operated in order to interact with the users that are active on these sites and platforms and to inform them about projects and services. By clicking on a social network’s logo, the user is redirected to the ASEP presence on the respective network.

When users visit the platforms, personal data is collected, used and stored by the operators of the respective social network, but not by ASEP. This is also the case even if the users themselves do not have an account with the respective social network.

The individual data processing operations and their scope differ depending on the operator of the respective social network. ASEP has no influence on the collection of data or its further use by the social network operators. We are not fully aware of the extent to which, where and for how long the data is stored; to what extent the networks comply with existing obligations regarding erasure; what analyses are conducted and links established with the data; and to whom the data is disclosed.

Access to ASEP social media sites is subject to the terms of use and privacy policies of the respective operators. Click here for the contact details and links to the data privacy policies of the social media on which ASEP maintains a presence.

 

Disclosure to third parties

ASEP does not pass on personal data to third parties unless it is legally obliged or entitled to do so by law.

 

Duration of data retention

User data will not be kept any longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it is processed or as required by law.

IT security of user data

ASEP accords great importance to protecting personal data. For this reason, technical and organisational security measures ensure that data is protected against accidental and intentional manipulation and unintended erasure as well as unauthorised access. These measures are updated accordingly based on technical developments and adapted continuously in line with the risks.
