Privacy policy

We are very pleased about your interest in, our website and online offer. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of NAUDASGOVS.

The use of our website is possible without any indication of personal data. However, processing of personal data could become necessary if you want to use our services or when you contact us. If processing of personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

Therefore, it goes without saying that we comply with Latvia`s Personal Data Processing Law (PDPL) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and treat personal data as strictly confidential.

As the Data Controller, NAUDASGOVS has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can always be subject to security vulnerabilities, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means.

What this privacy policy regulates
This privacy policy governs the handling of personal data. It describes what personal data we collect when you use our website and how we use it. Personal data is individual information about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as your name, address, telephone number or date of birth as well as Online Identifiers and IP addresses. Statistical information that cannot be directly or indirectly linked to you - such as the popularity of individual website on our website or the number of users of a site - is not personal data.

Your rights
The data protection laws in your country may give you the following rights:

• Right to information: what personal data a company processes and why (this notice).
• Right of access: You can request information about data collected.
• Right to rectification: If data collected is not correct, you can ask for it to be corrected.
• Right to erasure: Under certain circumstances, you can request the erasure of your data.
• Right to restriction of processing: In certain circumstances, you can request the further processing of your data, but the data will remain stored.
• Right to data portability: You can have the data collected about you transferred to another provider in a machine-readable format.
• Right to object: In certain circumstances (including where your data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests or for marketing purposes) you may object to processing.
• Rights in relation to automated case-by-case decisions, including profiling: This includes several rights where data is processed solely by automated means, and this has a legal or significant impact on an individual. In these circumstances, you have, among other things, the right to human intervention in the decision-making process.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights listed above, you can contact us. For your protection and the protection of all our users, we may need to request certain information from you to help us confirm your identity before we can respond to the above requests.

If you feel that we have not resolved your concern, you have the right to make a complaint at any time. You can also contact your local data protection supervisory authority.

Legal basis for data processing on our website

Based on your consent: Insofar as you have given us consent to process personal data for specific purposes, the lawfulness of this processing is based on your consent. Consent given can be revoked at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the data processed until the revocation.

For the fulfilment of contractual obligations: In some cases, the processing of your data is also carried out for the fulfilment of a contract concluded with you at your request or for the fulfilment of a pre-contractual measure, such as in the context of a service obligation towards you. Further details on the relevant data processing purposes can be found in the relevant contractual documents and conditions of participation.

Within the framework of the balancing of interests: Where necessary, we process your data to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of third parties. These are, for example:

• Use of cookies
• Assertion of legal claims and defence in legal disputes
• Ensuring stability and security.

Purposes of data processing on our website: Insofar as we process your personal data on our website, this is done for the purposes outlined below:

• Technical provision of the website and monitoring its functionality
• Statistical analysis of the use of the website
• Collection of your device data (through the use of cookies)

How we use information
The main reason we use your information is to provide and improve our services. We also use your information to protect you and to provide you with advertisements that may be of interest to you.

Data processing
We process your personal data on our website in different ways:

Cookies are text files which are stored on a computer system via an internet browser. Numerous Internet pages and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters by which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognised and identified via the unique cookie ID. For further details please visit our Cookie Policy.

Log files
The website of NAUDASGOVS collects a series of general data and information each time a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following data may be collected: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, NAUDASGOVS does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed (1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) to optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for these, (3) to ensure the long-term operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber-attack. Therefore, NAUDASGOVS analyses anonymously collected data and information on one hand, and on the other hand, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so that we can ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

Comment function on our blog
For comments in our blog, we collect in addition to your comment, details of when the comment was created and, if you do not post anonymously, the username you have chosen will be stored. You have choices about the information on your comment. You don’t have to provide additional information on your comment; however, comment information helps you to get more from our Services. It’s your choice whether to include sensitive information in your comment and to make that sensitive information public. Please do not post or add personal data in your comment that you would not want to be available.

The comments and the associated data (e.g., IP address) are stored and remain on our website until the commented content has been completely deleted or the comments have to be deleted for legal reasons (e.g., offensive comments).

The storage of comments is based on your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

We have integrated components from Vimeo on our website. Vimeo is operated by Vimeo, Inc., 555 West 18th Street New York, NY 10011, USA. The integration requires that Vimeo can perceive the IP address of the user. The IP address is required in order to send the content to the user's browser. If you call up a single page of our website on which a Vimeo component (video) is located, your internet browser will be prompted by the component to download a corresponding representation of the component. In this way, Vimeo knows which specific sub-pages you have visited. If you are logged in to Vimeo at the same time, Vimeo can track which of our sub-pages containing a video you have visited.
If you do not want information to be transmitted to Vimeo, log out of Vimeo before you visit our website.

Information you provide to us as part of a donation
We store and process information that you give us as part of a donation primarily for the purpose of carrying out the collection of donations that you have instructed us to do. Depending on the payment method selected, at least your full name, e-mail address are required. If you choose direct debit for your donation, you also provide us with your bank details, which are necessary for the further processing of your donation. Credit institutions only receive your data insofar as they are necessary for the processing of the donation collection.

The data is passed on directly to the selected credit institution via an encrypted SSL connection in order to execute the donation. The data will not be passed on to any other third parties. The data collected is required for the execution of the donation. The user's e-mail address is required to confirm receipt of the donation. The data will not be used for any other purpose. The IP address of the user is also stored at the time the form is sent. We use the IP address to prevent misuse of the donation form. The IP address is used for the purpose of fraud prevention and to prevent unauthorized transactions to the detriment of third parties. The legal basis for the processing of the data is our legitimate interest.

Sharing your personal data
In the course of the necessary business processes, we are supported by external service providers in order to fulfil their tasks. To protect the data to be processed, the necessary data protection contracts have been concluded with all service providers. These are, in particular, service providers, as well as financial and consulting companies, which provide support in checking relevant data. In addition, we make use of specialised IT experts from suppliers and partner companies who have the relevant product know-how to support us in individual areas.

Updating your information
If you believe that the information, we hold about you is inaccurate or that we are no longer entitled to use it and want to request its rectification, deletion or object to its processing, please contact us.

For your protection and the protection of all of our users, we may ask you to provide proof of identity before we can answer the above requests.

Keep in mind, we may reject requests for certain reasons, including if the request is unlawful or if it may infringe on trade secrets or intellectual property or the privacy of another user. If you wish to receive information relating to another user, such as a copy of any messages you received from him or her through our service, the other user will have to contact us to provide their written consent before the information is released.

Icon links to social networks
We use small icons that refer to our website on third-party platforms. These are hyperlinks in each case, so no data is transferred from you automatically, but only when you click on the icons and a new tab opens in your browser with the third-party website. When you visit one of our pages equipped with a plugin, a connection to the platforms server is established. This tells the platforms server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your account, you enable the platform to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your account.

Social Media
The data you enter on our social media pages, such as comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages, etc. are published by the social media platform and are not used or processed by us for any other purpose at any time. We only reserve the right to delete content if this should be necessary. Where applicable, we share your content on our site if this is a function of the social media platform and communicate with you via the social media platform. The legal basis is our legitimate interest. The data processing is carried out in the interest of our public relations and communication.

If you wish to object to certain data processing over which we have an influence, please contact us. We will then examine your objection. If you send us a request on the social media platform, we may also refer you to other secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality, depending on the response required. You always have the option of sending us confidential inquiries to our address stated in the imprint.

As already stated, where the social media platform provider gives us the opportunity, we take care to design our social media pages to be as data protection compliant as possible. With regard to statistics that the provider of the social media platform makes available to us, we can only influence these to a limited extent and cannot switch them off. However, we make sure that no additional optional statistics are made available to us.

Data processing by the operator of the social media platform
The operator of the social media platform uses web tracking methods. The web tracking can also take place regardless of whether you are logged in or registered with the social media platform. As already explained, we can unfortunately hardly influence the web tracking methods of the social media platform. We cannot, for example, switch this off.

Please be aware: It cannot be ruled out that the provider of the social media platform uses your profile and behavioural data, for example to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences, etc. We have no influence on this. In this respect, we have no influence on the processing of your data by the provider of the social media platform.

Exercising your rights
If you would like to exercise any of our rights as set out above in the “Your rights” section above or have a complaint, please contact us. Any such request will be responded to within one month and we might require proof of identity to verify and process your request. For more information about these rights, please contact us.
For security reasons, this site uses TLS/SSL encryption. You can recognise this encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://", as well as by the lock symbol in your browser line. If encryption is activated, data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Data of Children
Persons under the age of 18 are not permitted to transmit personal data to us or to submit a declaration of consent without the consent of their legal guardians. We encourage parents and guardians to actively participate in the online activities and interests of their children. If you become aware that your Child has provided us with Personal Data, without parental consent, please contact us and we take the necessary steps to remove that information from our server.

How often do we update this privacy policy?
This privacy policy may be amended from time to time, for example to bring it into line with new data protection legislation. We will post any changes to the privacy policy on this page. We will keep older versions of this privacy policy in an archive for your reference.
