The Czech Geological Survey guarantees full protection of the personal data of visitors to the Information Portal. It is not necessary to log in on the CGS external pages and no personal data are requested.

The web server records information about the IP address from which users log on to the CGS server. Service Toplist also records the same information.

The Google Analytics service collects and classifies data based on IP addresses (country and town of a visitor, and the domain). Since August 2014 we have been following anonymous statistical data on the demographic profile of visitors through Google Analytics. In any case this data cannot be assigned to a the specific visitor or specific IP address. Users who want to prevent their data from being used by Google Analytics, can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on for the Google Analytics JavaScript.

The CGS does not provide data about visitors that is not publicly accessible to third parties. Such information is stored only for a limited period.

Certain services on the CGS Information Portal require visitors to register (e.g. on-line shopping in the CGS book shop, submitting a question in the section Ask a geologist etc.) because some personal data is necessary in order to provide the services.

To accept and fulfill orders in the CGS on-line book shop it is necessary for the visitor to provide the personal data necessary so that the order can be completed. By registering in the CGS on-line book shop, visitors agrees to the collection and to use of information about themselves and their orders. This information is privy to the Czech Geological Survey. All personal data are protected to prevent abuse, and personal information is not supplied to third parties.
