2.    Categories of personal data processed

In the following we inform you about personal data that may be automatically processed about you when you use the Arabia Felix Games website (“website”).


2.1. Collection of personal data when visiting our website

When visiting the website, the browser used automatically transmits data that is stored in a log file. GIZ itself only processes the data that is technically necessary to display the website correctly and to ensure stability and security.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line. If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Every time a user accesses a page of our website, and every time a file is downloaded, that information is stored in a log file.

Among other things, the following data is stored for each access:

·         Technical details of the browser used

·         The page from which the user was redirected

·         Anonymous IP address of the accessing device

·         Date and time of the access

·         Page opened/name of the file downloaded

·         Quantity of data transferred

·         Notification of whether viewing or download was successful

The stored data is evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes and then deleted. Data will not be passed on to third parties. The data in the log file is deleted after 14 days.


2.2 Cookies

When visiting the website, small text files, so-called cookies, are stored on the visitor’s computer. They serve to make the website more user-friendly and effective. Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer.

The website uses cookies that are automatically deleted as soon as the browser in which the page is displayed is closed (so-called temporary cookies or session cookies). This type of cookie makes it possible to assign various requests from a browser to a session and makes it possible to recognise the browser when the website is visited again (session ID). After anonymisation, an assignment to the requesting computer or connection is no longer possible according to the current state of technology. These session cookies are used for user analysis. They do not contain any personal data and expire at the end of the session.
