The public website (www.highnessproject.eu)
If you browse the public HighNESS website the following information is logged by our server: your browser, operating system, IP address, the date and time of your visit, the pages visited, and the amount of data transferred. This information is used to monitor for suspicious activities (e.g. attempts to hack the site), to diagnose technical problems on the site, and to create anonymous usage statistics. We do not attempt to identify or profile users based on these data. Processing these data is necessary for keeping the website secure and robust. We do not store any access logs.
By using this website, you consent to the processing of the data collected about your visit by Google analytics in the manner and for the purpose described above.
Links to other websites
Our website contains links to other websites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. When you access other websites via links from the HighNESS website, we advise you to be aware of their privacy policies.
Embedded content from other websites
The recordings of the past HighNESS webinars and videos about HighNESS success stories are available on the HighNESS website as embedded YouTube videos. For embedding the YouTube videos, the expanded data protection mode was used, so that the videos are loaded from the domain youtube.nocookies.com instead of youtube.com. By this, no cookies are installed in your browser by YouTube to capture information about your user behaviour. However, with each visit of one of our subpages containing an embedded video (even if the video is not played), your browser still communicates with YouTube and Google servers, which means that YouTube and Google gain knowledge of which subpage of our website was visited.
If you are logged in to YouTube, YouTube recognises with each visit of a subpage containing an embedded video (even if the video is not played), which specific page was visited, collects this information and assigns it to the respective YouTube account. Thus, YouTube and Google receive information that you have visited our website. If you do not want the transmission of this information you can prevent it by logging off from your YouTube account before visiting our website.
