How does our site handle Do Not Track signals?

Personal data

We use personal data only to execute our legal obligation based on the application of membership and exclusively to provide our members – via the website – with a wide range of personalised services (for CEO member companies only) or to comply with contact requests of members, as well as for preparing anonymised analytics for statistical surveys.

In order to comply with the General Data Protection Regulation, if a personal data breach is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, we will communicate the personal data breach to the data subject as soon as possible via email.

Statistical analysis

No direct personal analysis takes place. We reserve the right to perform statistical analysis of anonymised data records. This analysis is saved to improve the website and for statistical purposes. In such cases, general information is recorded, e.g. when and which one of our sites was launched, or which site was visited most often. These data do not allow for any conclusions to be made about the user.

Sharing personal data to third parties           

We do not generally share personal data with third parties.

Should any changes to this data protection declaration occur, they will be published on this website together with the date of the change.
