Your security on the Internet and the protection of your personal data are very important to us. Basically, we only collect data that is absolutely necessary for the functioning of our afrika-junior site and the communication with you. We adhere to the laws on data protection.
To let you know who is running this site and who is responsible for the processing of your data, here is our address:

These are also the contact details of our data protection manager.
Why is data protection so important?
With every step you take on the Internet, you leave tracks like a rabbit in the snow. And there are a lot of foxes who are after these traces because they earn money with them or pursue some other interests. Of course, you don't want that. That's why we're telling you about it and explaining what we do with your data and how we protect it. Because you also leave traces with us. Why do we track your data? Because we want to improve our website. To do this, we want to know what you particularly like and what you are less interested in.
When do we receive data from you and what kind of data is it?
In order for you to view our website, we receive information from your computer. When you visit one of our web pages, your computer asks our computer for a specific Internet address, the URL. At the same time, your computer also sends us the following information:
a number (IP address) at which it is currently accessible and
a number of other data. For example, what program and operating system you are using.
Sometimes your computer also tells us from which website you came to our site.
In order for our website to open in your computer, we need to briefly store and process your IP address and the other data. In case our computer has problems, we save all accesses for a week as a precaution. This way we can check what exactly happened. If there are such problems, we may also store the data longer so that we have time to investigate the problem thoroughly. After that, the data is deleted. We only collect the data anonymously - i.e. without names and addresses. From this, we create anonymous statistics. With this we find out which areas and topics you like most. We use the results to improve the site.
