s.Pro – sustainable projects GmbH ("us", "we", or "our") is responsible for operating www.msp-platform.eu (the "site"). You may use this site without giving us personal data (information linked to your person). We collect and process personal data only to provide the services you requested. By using our site and submitting personal data you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this policy.

In this case we will ask for your permission prior to transferring data to third parties.

 

COOKIE USAGE

Our site uses cookies. Cookies don't harm your computer and don't contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our site more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files, that your browser programme saves on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are so called „session-cookies“. Session cookies are removed once you terminate your browser programme. Other cookies remain on your device for a longer time or until you delete them. These cookies allow us to re-identify your browser programme when you return to our site.
You may configure your browser programme to inform you before cookies are saved on your device, to allow setting a cookie one-by-one, to allow only specific types of cookies, to refuse all cookies or to delete all cookies on termination of your browser programme. If you refuse cookies completely, some functions of our website may not work properly.
We ask for your permission to receive cookies when you visit our site. If you agree your permission will be saved as a cookie in the browser programme you use on your device:

USAGE ANALYSIS

Server Log Files

Our site automatically saves information in server log files, that your browser programme automatically sends to us with every request. These are:
•    your browser programme's name and its version
•    your device's operating system
•    the (complete) IP-address of your device
•    the exact time of your request
•    the URL-address of the requested file or page
•    the referrer URL (the address of the website which pointed to our site, if you clicked on a link)
•    the HTTP status code (important in case of an error)
For us, just this information is insufficient to identify a person. We refrain from aggregating this data with other data sources. We do not use these logs unless we need this information to analyse cases of irregular or illegal usage of our site. We assume our interest in safeguarding the functionality of the page justifies saving data which may not be personalized without further effort. Only if you submit a form containing personal data (see below), we may associate your IP-address with you, which we have to do anyway, as we are obliged by §76 of the German BDSG to prove the identity of the person submitting personal data on our website on request. To meet these requirements, we also save Server Log Files until the end of the following year.

 

Matomo

Our Website uses the Open Source tracking software "Matomo" (formerly known as "Piwik"). Matomo runs on a server we rent to operate this site (please see “Hosting” below).  Matomo generates up to three cookies. If you permit these cookies, the programme records information about your usage of our site which is aggregated with other users' data for generating usage statistics. We use these statistics to improve the website's usability and the usefulness of its content. These statistics are saved for a couple of years. To protect your privacy, the last half of your IP-address is omitted when saving data to the server. For us, this information is insufficient to identify a person.:

_pk_id.3.978a

_pk_ses.3.978a

If you don't permit saving and using your usage data for our statistical purposes, you may deactivate saving your data below. In this case an opt-out-cookie will be saved in your browser programme which will tell the Matomo service not to record any data during your visits. If you delete all cookies, the Matomo opt-out-cookie will be deleted, too. In this case, the deactivating of Matomo must be repeated the next time you visit, if you disapprove of being tracked.

 

EMBEDDED FONTS
