These data are logged anonymously. For this purpose your IP address will be shortened (last part (byte) is replaced by “x”), so that no conclusions may be drawn to you as an individual. The anonymized protocols will only be used for statistical purposes and to optimize our services; a comparison with other databases or a transmission to third parties will not take place.

2.2   Cookies

In order to make the visit on our website more convenient and to track the functionality and activity of our websites, we use cookies. These are small text files that are saved on your computer and allow the identification of you as a user. However, cookies do not tell us who you are. These pseudonymised user profiles will not be connected to any personal data of the bearer of the pseudonym, if an explicit consent is not given in this context. You can adjust your browser in a way that all cookies will be deleted from your hardware, get blocked or that you receive a warning before a cookie will be saved. In some cases though, the deletion of cookies can result in a limited use of the offered services.

On our website http://www.notghiacademy.com/ we use social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network facebook.com, which is owned by Facebook Inc., 471 Emerson St. Palo Alto, CA 94301-160, (“Facebook”). The plugins are identified by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile or a “thumbs up” – sign) or are indicated with the additional “Facebook social plugin”. The list and the look of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/faqs. If you visit one of our websites containing a plugin, your browser will establish a direct connection to the servers of Facebook. Facebook sends the plugin’s content directly to your browser and from there to the website. Therefore we do not have an influence on the amount of data Facebook is collecting through the plugin and can only inform you according to our information status: Through the integration of the plugin Facebook receives a notification that you did visit one of our websites. If you are logged onto Facebook, Facebook can connect your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins by using the Like Button or comment on an action for example; the corresponding information will be transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and will be saved there. If you are not a Facebook member, there is still the possibility for Facebook to find out and store your IP address. For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the ongoing processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your relevant rights and the settings available for the protection of your privacy, please refer to Facebook´s privacy policy: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

If you are a Facebook member and you do not want Facebook to collect your data and connect it with the data saved by Facebook, you have to log out before visiting our websites.

Furthermore, it is possible to block Facebook social plugins with browser add-ons such as the “Facebook Blocker”.

3      Transmission of Data

We will not pass any of your data to third parties except you consent in a data transmission or we are obliged to the transmission due to legislation and/or court or authority rulings. This may be in particular for law enforcement purposes, preserving public order and safety, or the enforcement of intellectual property rights.
