3.1 Automatic storage of data
Every time a person or automated system accesses our website, a series of general data and information is collected and stored in the log files of the server (log files).
The following specific data is stored in this log file:
- Date and time of the call
- Name of the Internet service called, the resource called and the action used
- if necessary, the query that the client has made
- the website from which the user has accessed our pages (referrer), as well as their country code (e.g. "en")
- the amount of data transferred
- Message as to whether the retrieval was successful
- IP address (Internet Protocol address) of the calling computer
- Data provided by the Internet client used by the visitor (browser type, e-mail program, etc.): Program, version, operating system, language
- the Internet service provider of the accessing system
- other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. These log files are required to correctly deliver and optimize the contents of our website as well as the advertising for it, to ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by us statistically and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order ultimately to ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.
3.2 General contact via the website
Due to legal regulations, our website contains information that enables quick electronic contact and direct communication with us, for example via e-mail. The personal data transmitted by you will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting you. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.
3.3 Contact and application forms
In some parts of our website you may be asked to enter personal data in forms. These include forms for registering, online short applications and online applications for the au pair, high school and tutor programs.
The specific personal data that is transmitted depends on the respective form. The personal data entered by you will only be collected and stored for the purposes stated on the form in order to comply with your respective request. It is your free decision whether you enter this personal data. Your personal data will not be linked or matched with other data.
The IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP), the date and time of registration are also stored. This data is stored against the background that this is the only way to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable us to investigate criminal offences committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for our protection. This data will not be passed on to third parties unless required to do so by law or for the purpose of criminal prosecution.
Furthermore, we at Ayusa International e.V. must also collect special personal data from the applicants for an au pair, high school or tutor program in order to carry out the consultation and application procedure in the online short applications and online applications. This includes the collection of health-related data and data on religious attitudes. This information is important for our application process, for placement with a suitable host family in the host country and for the support of the participant in the host country. In individual cases, participation in the program may not be possible due to health restrictions. As we are not allowed to process this special personal data without an explicit consent, we obtain it separately in the course of the application process.
3.4 Duration for which the personal data is stored
We store personal data for as long as it is necessary for the performance or initiation of the contract that you have requested, as well as for other important purposes, such as compliance with our legal obligations, dispute resolution and the duty of proof. Therefore, the actual storage period can vary considerably.
If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European regulator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
