Use and dissemination of personal data
The AAECCBA uses your personal data exclusively for technical purposes in the administration of the web pages.

Automatically collected data
When you go to a AAECCBA web page, general data, which is not personal, is collected (what Internet browser is being used, number of visits, average duration of visit, what pages were brought up). This information, recorded automatically (thus not via registration), is used to develop a basis for making the site more attractive, enhancing its contents and functionality. In this instance, too, no further use or dissemination of your data takes place.

Cookies are small files temporarily stored on your hard drive. They are only intended to gather data on the use of the AAECCBA website.

Depending how it is set up, your browser accepts Internet cookies automatically. However, you can adjust your browser at any time and use the AAECCBA website without cookies.

The AAECCBA takes proper precautions to protect personal data from loss, destruction, forgery, manipulation and unauthorized access. It also takes the stipulations of the Federal Republic’s law on data protection into account.
