Data Protection Statement pursuant to the TDM of IDC Egypt Ltd.
For us, IDC Egypt Ltd., the protection and confidentiality of personal data is of great importance. We gather and use personal data exclusively in accordance with the legal provisions i.e. the applicable German and European Data Protection Act. With this data protection statement, we are informing site visitors about the personal data we gather and for what purpose we use the data as well as what options site visitors have regarding their personal data.
We have taken organisational, contractual and technical security measures in order to ensure that the provisions of the Data Protection Act are adhered to and coincidental or intentional manipulations, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons is avoided. Nevertheless, 100% security with regards to online data transfer is not possible.
1 Access data
We gather data for every access to the online offer (so-called server log files). The access data includes the name of the website called up, file, date and time the website was called up, quantity of data transferred, report on successful call up, type of browser along with the version, the site visitor’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited site) and the requesting provider.
We use the protocol data without attribution to the site visitor or any profiling as per the legal provisions only for statistic evaluation for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of the online offer. However, we reserve the right to check the protocol data subsequently if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful usage based on precise evidence.
We save IP addresses for a limited time in the log files if this is necessary for security purposes or for service provision, if there is precise suspicion of a crime in connection with the usage of the internet.
2 Inventory data
We save and use additional personal data only if you give this data voluntarily for instance you get in touch with us. If you provide us with personal data, we only use this to answer your questions, to process contracts concluded with you and for technical administration.
We use “cookies” within the framework of our online offer. Cookies are small data files which are saved on the site visitor’s computer and can save information for the provider. Temporary cookies are deleted upon closure of the browser. Permanent cookies are retained for a specific period of time and can provide the saved information once the online offer is called up once again. For registration (with username and password), we use the so-called “session cookies” with which the site visitor can be identified during the period of his visit. The session cookies contain parts of the registration data in coded form. Site visitors can delete these cookies from the browser of their terminal devices at any time. Session cookies expire automatically at the end of the session.
The site visitor can influence the usage of cookies. Most browsers have the option which partly or completely prevents the saving of cookies. We are making an effort to organise the online offer in such a way that the usage of cookies is not necessary. We would like to point out that the usage and particularly the user convenience are limited without cookies.
4 Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics which is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses the so-called “cookies”, text data files which are saved on the site visitor’s computer and which enable analysis of the usage of the website by you. The information generated by the cookies regarding the usage of this website by the site visitors is usually transmitted to Google’s server in the USA and saved there.
In case of activation of the IP anonymisation on this website, the site visitor’s IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting member states of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases shall the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. IP anonymisation is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google shall use this information in order to analyse the site visitor’s usage of the website, in order to compile reports on website activities and in order to provide the website operator other services associated with the usage of the website and the internet.
The IP address transmitted from your browser by Google Analytics shall not be merged with other Google data. Site visitors can prevent the saving of the cookies by setting up their browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use all functions of this website comprehensively.
Moreover, site visitors can prevent the gathering of the data generated by the cookie and which is related to the usage of the website (including your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available here:
5 Sending information via newsletter
E-mail messages with promotional information about us as well as our services are sent only with the site visitor’s express consent. The site visitors can object the receipt of the newsletter at any time. The option of objection can be found in every e-mail.
Prior to sending the newsletter, the owner of the e-mail address receives a confirmation e-mail in which he has to confirm the registration for the newsletter. Unconfirmed registrations shall automatically be deleted within four weeks at the latest.
Within the framework of registration for the newsletter, we save the registration as well as the confirmation time and the site visitor’s IP address. We are legally bound to record the registrations in order to be capable of proving proper registration.

The newsletter is sent by CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede, Germany – a dispatch service provider.

The dispatch service provider can use the recipient’s data in a pseudonymised form, i.e. without attribution to the user, for the optimisation or improvement of its own services e.g. for the technical optimisation of the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter or for statistic purposes. The dispatch service provider does not use our newsletter recipients’ data to write to them itself or to pass on the data to third parties.

7 Integration of Google Maps
We use Google Maps on this website. In this way, we can show you interactive maps directly on the website and enable you to use the map function comfortably.

This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account via which you have logged in or whether there is no user account. When you have logged on to Google, your data will be attributed to your account directly. If you do not want attribution with your profile on Google, you have to log out of Google prior to activation of the button. Google saves your data as usage profile and uses it for purposes of advertising, market research and/or need-based designing of its website. Such an evaluation is particularly done (even for users who have not logged in) to deliver appropriate advertisement and to inform other social network users about your activities on our website. You have the right to raise objection against the creation of this user profile. You have to notify Google about exercising this right.

8 Usage of Facebook-Plug-ins
On our page, plug-ins of the social network Facebook, 1601 South Carolina Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA have been integrated. The Facebook plug-ins recognise you on the Facebook logo or the “like button” on our site. A summary of the Facebook plug-ins can be seen here: developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. When you visit our site, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook thus obtains the information that you visited our page with your IP address.

Facebook can thereby associate the visit to our page with your user account.
