For registration purposes, an e-mail address must be submitted. The scope of the personal data required for use of a service and the manner in which it is handled are set out in the description of the corresponding service on the web sites of benevol-jobs.ch.

Any and all data generated by the nonprofit are stored in the database of benevol-jobs.ch for an indefinite period to facilitate a reactivation at a later time.

2.4 Storage of access data
Upon accessing our web sites, furthermore, general access data is stored in a log file for statistical purposes. This concerns in particular:
• IP address
• Date and time of access
• Name of the file viewed
• Access status (OK, partial content, document not found, etc.)
• Page on which the access was made
• Top-Level-Domain (*.ch, *.fr, *.com etc.)
• Web browser used
• Operating system used.
benevol-jobs.ch processes such data anonymously to ascertain for example the days on which there is the most web site activity. No person-related evaluation of the log files is carried out.

You can find more detailed information on the NET-Metrix Audit at http://www.net-metrix.ch/.
c) Tracking and analysis tools
We use a variety of technical tracking and analysis systems to measure and analyse the use of our services. These measurements may be anonymous or personally identifiable. The collected data may also be disclosed by us or the third-party suppliers of such technical systems for processing.
The most commonly used analysis tool is Google Analytics, a service of Google Inc. This tool generally makes it possible to transfer the collected data to a Google server in the USA or another third-party country with the IP addresses anonymised via IP anonymisation so that they cannot be associated. The IP address transmitted by your browser under Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. You may object to the collection and processing of these data via Google Analytics by setting an opt-out cookie that prevents your data from being collected when you visit this website in future. You can find detailed information about this at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
3. SOCIAL PLUG-INS
We use so-called social plug-ins on our websites. Plug-ins can be recognised by their social network logos. All of the plug-ins we use are set up with two-click functionality. They are only activated if you click on the icon.
When you open one of our websites that has an activated plug-in, your browser will create a direct connection to the provider’s servers. The content of the plug-in is sent directly from the provider to your browser and integrated into the site. By integrating the plug-in, certain information is sent to the third party and saved by them.
If you are not a member of the social network in question, your IP address may still be captured and saved by the network via the social plug-in. If you are already logged into the social network, the third parties can immediately link your visit to our websites to your personal profile in the social network. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example with the “Like”, “+1”, "LinkedIn", “Twitter” or “Instagram” buttons, the corresponding information will also be sent directly to a server at the third party and saved there. The information is also published on the social network, in your Twitter or Instagram account and then shown to your contacts. For more information about the purpose and scope of the data capture, the further processing and use of the data by the third party, and the related rights and settings options to protect your privacy, please look at the data privacy statements of the third parties themselves.
If you would like to prevent Google, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram from linking your personal information captured on our websites with the social networks in question, you need to log out of that social network before visiting our website. You can completely prevent plug-ins from being loaded using special add-ons for your browser such as “NoScript” (http://noscript.net/) or „Ghostery“(https://www.ghostery.com/).
