Anonymous collection of data
You can visit the GDA website without telling us who you are. When you visit our website, we only obtain details of the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you are visiting us and the pages of our website you actually visit. This information is evaluated for statistical purposes. As an individual user, you remain anonymous.
Collection and processing of personal data
Personal data are only collected if you volunteer these to us, for example to fulfil a contract, conduct a survey or register for our personalised services. Within the scope of GDA’s personalised services, your registration details will only be used to provide information on our range of products and services, conduct market research or for tailoring our electronic services to meet actual requirements if you have consented beforehand that we may do so. Furthermore, if you have given your consent, the information you request when you visit the GDA website will be collated into a user profile in order to be able to offer you information tailored specifically to your personal requirements. These data are transmitted encoded to combat possible misuse by third parties.
