International Windsurfing Association DATA PROTECTION POLICY
The Association is committed to processing data in accordance with its responsibilities under the General Data Protection Regulation - http://www.internationalwindsurfing.com/userfiles/documents/DataProtectionPolicy.pdf
What personal information do we collect from the people that visit our website?
In general, our website can be used without providing any personal data.
General and Error Log Files
When you visit our website, our webservers automatically store certain data in log files. The general log files may tell us which Internet browser and operating system you were using and which IP address was allocated to your Internet access when you were visiting the site, the URL of the internet page from which you arrived at our website, the exact time when you accessed and left our website, the amount of data transmitted, and the pages you accessed on our website. The personal data automatically collected is necessary for us to provide the website (Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR), and for our legitimate interest to guarantee the website’s stability and security (Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR).
Should our web server(s) detect an error in processing requests, it will send the corresponding information to an error log file. Those log files for technical reasons also record the client IP address from which the request was sent, i.e. your IP address if your request caused the error.
We have no means, and no interest in, identifying you through the general or error log file data. We use the general log file data for statistical purposes. The information we can from time to time retrieve from the files relates to, for example, peak times of the use of our website, which information our users are most interested in on the website, how users navigate on our website and which browsers and operating system our users use. We use that information to improve the technical setup as well as the design of our website. The error log files are used to diagnose and fix the error. The personal data collected in the course of this process is necessary for our legitimate interest to guarantee the website’s stability and security (Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR).
Data policy for the use of Google Analytics
We will use the Information gathered by cookies deployed by Google Analytics to analyse your use of our website, to generate reports on website activities and to perform other website related services to you.
