In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we have updated our policy on the protection of private information, pertaining to the visitors of your website.

For visitors under 18 years of age

We care about privacy protection for those under 18 years of age. If you are younger than 18, please ask for permission from your parent or guardian before your share your personal information with us.

UPDATE TO THE PRIVACY POLICY FROM MAY 2018

b.)   INFORMATION WE AUTOMATICALLY GATHER FROM YOU

Zelena akcija uses cookies and gathers information regarding IP addresses, downloaded content, number of visitors, traffic times and national demographic data of visitors, all for statistical purposes. Zelena akcija does not reveal information collected in this way to any third-parties under any circumstances, unless legally obligated to do so.

Other than that, this website does not collect data from visitors, apart from information willingly shared through communication with Zelena akcija. All personal information is strictly confidential and its processing is in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

2. HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

The e-mail addresses you have given us are used exclusively for delivering the newsletter or information on the mailing list.

Your e-mail address is kept in a database, which is also located on the server that generates the monthly newsletters. Zelena akcija has taken all security measures to ensure that your information is used for its intended purpose.  

The information you give us by filling out a contact form is used to answer your query. Anonymous information can be used for statistical purposes about queries, or consultations with journalists and citizens.

Gathering information through cookies is used to optimise your user experience and to keep track of general statistics of website visits and traffic analysis through the use of Google Analytics (a service which allows us to keep track of anonymous user traffic on the website).

Zelena akcija occasionally conducts questionnaires about its programmes, public opinion research, etc. These questionnaires are conducted electronically or in written form. Their specific purposes and terms of use are part of the data gathering form. All questions regarding specific questionnaires can be sent to [email protected].

Your information is kept as long as it is needed for its given purpose. If you share your e-mail with us to receive the monthly newsletter, it is kept as long as Zelena akcija provides the newsletter, unless you cancel your subscription. In that case your address is deleted from the database. For other types of information, it is kept as long as it is needed for its given purpose, or as long as it is legally required/allowed. For example, if you fill out a questionnaire for a project that lasts for two years, the information that you have given is kept long enough to fulfil the project requirements (two years, plus the reporting period). You may request that we delete or change your information in our database at any time.

3. WHO HAS ACCESS TO YOUR INFORMATION?

Only employees of Zelena akcija with access privileges can access your information in our secure server data base, and only specifically for purposes authorised by the user (for which you have explicitly given us permission) or a legal basis for use.

This website uses services, like the newsletter distribution service MailChimp, through which information you share with us (your e-mail) can be transferred outside the territories of Croatia or the EU, where the database servers are located. Those countries do not necessarily have the same data protection laws as the EU. By providing your personal information for use, you agree to share it in this way. In case your information is shared with third parties outside Croatia or the EU, we will make all necessary arrangement to make sure that all security and technical measures for the protection of your information are met, as is described in the Privacy Policy.
