This website has been compiled with the utmost care. Nevertheless, GIZ gives no guarantee that the information provided is current, accurate, complete or error-free. GIZ accepts no liability for damage or loss arising directly or indirectly from the use of this website, provided it has not been caused intentionally or by gross negligence.
GIZ expressly reserves the right to modify, append and delete the website in part on in whole without prior notice, or to halt publication completely or for a limited period.
This website contains links to external sites. Responsibility for the content of the external sites linked to this website always lies with their respective publishers. When the links to these sites were first posted, GIZ checked the third-party content to establish whether it could give rise to civil or criminal liability. However, the constant review of the linked external sites cannot reasonably be expected without concrete indication of a violation of rights. If GIZ itself becomes aware or is notified by a third party that a linked external site gives rise to civil or criminal liability, it will remove the link to this site immediately. GIZ expressly dissociates itself from such content.
Cartographic presentations in no way constitute recognition under international law of boundaries and territories.
Links to the GIZ homepage may be created, provided the GIZ website opened is then the sole content of the browser window.

Collection of personal data when using our website
Every time a user accesses GIZ's website and every time a file is accessed, information about the activity is processed and stored in a temporary log file. Before it is stored, each data set is rendered anonymous by altering the IP address.
In the case of merely informative use of the website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. If you wish to visit our website, we only collect the data that is technically necessary for us to display our website and to ensure its stability and security (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 f GDPR).
The following information is stored for each page you view and each file you download:
• 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
When single pages are called up, so-called temporary cookies are used to facilitate navigation. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the site visitor's Internet browser. These session cookies contain no personal data and expire after the end of the session or after the end of a user survey, which is usually conducted every two years. Techniques, such as Java applets or Active X controls, which make it possible to understand the access behaviour of users, are not used.
Newsletter and Bulletin
Any personal details collected as part of the newsletter and compliance bulletin subscription will only be used for the purpose of processing the subscription and dealing with your enquiries. The only mandatory information for sending you the newsletter is your email address. Any personal information that we collect apart from your address, especially the job function and medium that you work for, is optional and helps us pinpoint and deliver topics relevant for your target audience. To register for our newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that, after you have registered, we will send you an email, to the email address stated by you, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. After your confirmation, we will store your email address for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 a) GDPR.
In addition, we store the IP addresses you use and times of the registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to prove your registration and, if necessary, to inform you about possible misuse of your personal data. You can revoke the consent you have given about receiving the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe the newsletter. The revocation can be realised by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter email or by sending an email to email@example.com.
We point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the emails sent include so-called web beacons or tracking pixels that represent one-pixel image files stored on our website. For the analysis, we link the above-mentioned data and the web beacons with your email address and an individual ID. The data is always anonymised when collected so the IDs are not linked to your personal data, and thus a direct personal reference is excluded. You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each email or informing us by contacting us in another way. The information will be stored as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After logging out, we store the data purely statistically and anonymously.
Your details will not be passed on to third parties. No use will be made of your details for consulting purposes, for advertising or for market research. If you cancel your subscription, all your personal details will be deleted from our database. Postal addresses and email addresses that you provide when you make an enquiry or order information materials are used exclusively for correspondence or delivery purposes. When you use other web-based services that require the submission of more extensive personal data, such as registration for training courses, the data protection declarations adapted to those services will also apply.
When using the contact form, the salutation, surname, first name and e-mail address are processed. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para 1 b) EU GDPR for the purpose of receiving the contact form’s request. Data are not passed on to third parties. The passing on to GIZ takes place by means of a connection encrypted with SSL, which makes an unauthorised notice much more difficult. Inquiries made via the contact form will be deleted after completion.
Inclusion of services and contents of third parties
In the following, an overview of third-party providers, their contents as well as links to their data protection declarations, which contain further information on the processing of data and possibilities to object (so-called opt-out) is given:
Data protection rights
You have the right to ask for information on your personal data and its processing, to have such data rectified if necessary, or to demand the restriction of the processing or the deletion of the data. The data will be deleted accordingly.
If you have any questions or complaints about this website, you can contact the data protection officer. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant data protection supervisory authority. The responsible authority is the Federal Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (BfDI).
Use of Matomo (formerly Piwik)
This website uses the web analysis service Matomo to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. With the statistics we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of Matomo is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) GDPR.
Notes on the objection: For this purpose, a cookie is stored on the device, which prevents the collection of user data when visiting the website. In order to object, the cookie must be placed on each device in use. Where multiple browsers are used on one device (for example Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) it is necessary to store the cookie in every browser since the cookie is only stored in the respective browser. It should also be noted that the objection cookie is deleted when all cookies are being deleted and needs to be stored again.
This website uses Matomo with the extension ‘AnonymizeIP’. As a result, IP addresses are processed in shortened form, which means that direct reference to persons is excluded. The IP address transmitted by Matomo from your browser will not be merged with other data collected by us.
The Matomo program is an open source project. Third-party privacy information is available at https://matomo.org/privacy-policy/.
