ESTICOM, a consortium led by the German Robert Koch Institute (RKI) and involving 9 European organisations, takes the protection of personal data very seriously. The utilisation of the web service of ESTICOM (www.esticom.eu) is, as a matter of principle, possible without the disclosure of personal data.
These web pages are produced and maintained by the German Robert Koch-Institute (RKI) and hosted by the Federal Information Technology Centre as IT service provider for German federal authorities. The Federal Information Technology Centre compiles usage statistics for the websites hosted by it. For this purpose it uses the programs AWStats (status: March 2017) and Piwik (status: December 2017). You will find the Link to the Data Protection Statement of the Federal Information Technology Centre below. The Federal Information Technology Centre provides ESTICOM with evaluations of the usage of the Internet service www.esticom.eu. ESTICOM uses these evaluations, which do not include any personal data, exclusively for the purpose of analysing, updating and improving its website.
The web pages www.esticom.eu include links to other websites. ESTICOM does not check whether the operators of these sites comply with the data protection provisions and has no influence on such compliance.
The web presence www.esticom.eu provides contacts and offers the possibility to send messages or make enquiries. As a rule forms are used for this purpose. The mandatory fields of the forms are limited for reasons of data protection to the minimum which is necessary to answer the enquiries. The personal data transmitted in this context is exclusively used to answer the enquiries. The data is not passed on to third parties. For reasons of data protection the data are transmitted in encrypted form by a secure socket layer (SSL).
