Personal data provided by the user shall be processed in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data
The State of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg does not collect any personal data when visiting websites apart from IP addresses in the web server logs for security reasons, so user consent is not required before visiting this portal.
The person responsible for this processing is the body responsible for this portal, i.e. the Government Information and Press Service (SIP).
Users may submit complaints regarding the protection of their data via the respective communication channels provided and to the body responsible for this portal, the Government Information and Press Service (SIP). The user may also file a complaint with the data protection officer of the Agency via the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The user may also contact the [National Commission for Data Protection] (https://cnpd.public.lu/en.html), whose registered office is at 15, Boulevard du Jazz, L-4370 Belvaux, for any dispute in this area.
The user's data are recorded and processed by the SIP solely for the purpose of managing the procedures concerned. Access to these data is strictly limited to the persons of the SIP who have been defined as responsible for this processing. Under no circumstances are these data used for commercial purposes or communicated to third parties. The data may be rendered anonymous for statistical or historical purposes.
The data are stored for as long as they remain necessary for the fulfilment of the above-mentioned purposes.
The SIP and the Land Registry and Surveying Administration, which hosts and operates the portal, take all precautionary measures to ensure data security, taking into account the more or less sensitive nature of the data. However, they cannot rule out all the risks associated with the use of the Internet.
2.2. Creation of an account
The creation of an account only requires the user's first and last names and an e-mail address. The data freely deposited on the site are either data sets intended to be published to the general public or cases of re-use of these data.
In accordance with the Data Protection Act, the user may access his/her personal data, modify them, request their deletion or object to any processing of data. To exercise these rights, the user may contact the SIP using the contact details at the bottom of this page.
2.3. Processing related to audience measurement
Certain data relating to the user's hardware and software which are not of an identifiable nature are collected when the user visits the public portal. The sole purpose of this collection is to obtain statistics on the number of visits (type of browser, resolution, approximate location, etc.) in order to provide users with the best possible service.
The user's full IP address is not stored under any circumstances. Only part of the IP address is kept in order to obtain global statistics and in no case is it possible to identify a user.
This data is stored and hosted in Europe in a solution provided by a subcontractor, namely Adobe Systems Inc. which, as a subcontractor, is subject to the same legal obligations concerning the protection of personal data in the event that such data is collected in the future.
The duration of data retention does not exceed that necessary to observe the evolution of audiences according to the evolution of browsers, resolutions used, or other available statistical data.
The person responsible for this processing is the organisation responsible for this site.
