3. Log Statistics
For each visit at https://www.hni.dk, Hugo Nielsen builds logistics statistics. Log statistics mean that a statistical system collects information that can provide a statistical view of how many visitors the website has had, where they come from, on which part of the website it was abandoned.

No personal data is processed for log statistics.

The purpose of collecting the above-mentioned information is primarily to increase user-friendliness, to measure the effectiveness of services and to document the use of the Hugo Nielsen Institute online store.

When you shop at the Hugo Nielsen Institute online store, personal information is collected and recorded for the purpose of providing the service to you that you have ordered. Your personal information will only be processed if you have agreed to it and agree with the process activities undertaken.

6. Security
Hugo Nielsen Institute has implemented a number of technical and organizational safeguards to protect your personal information against abuse. Specifically, measures that protect against accidental or illegal destruction, that your information is lost or impaired, or that your information becomes unauthorized, is being misused or otherwise treated in violation of data protection legislation.

The Hugo Nielsen Institute stores and transmits no personal data encrypted, but all the personal information we process is protected by a firewall. In case of payment by payment card, card information is also encrypted to the Hugo Nielsen Institute payment service provider, why the Hugo Nielsen Institute does not have access to either account or registration numbers.

In addition, we have implemented access control in a wide range of our systems, so that only employees with a work-related need have access to personal data. We continuously provide training for our employees and have prepared and implemented a wide range of policies and procedures to ensure that processing of personal data is in accordance with the principles that follow from the personal rights. Finally, it can be mentioned that logging of access attempts is made and that the exchange of personal data internally in the Hugo Nielsen Institute is relatively encrypted.

The safety measures are reviewed on a continuous basis and revised in accordance with technological developments. In addition, all of the Hugo Nielsen Institute employees are subject to professional secrecy, so you can be sure that your information is treated confidentially.
