By accessing this site, certain information about the user, such as Internet protocol (IP) addresses, navigation through the site, the software used and the time spent, along with other similar information, will be stored on servers.

The MEbA Quickscan is a tool offered on this website to allow for a quick assessment of the degree to which an interested institution can be classified as pursuing “microfinance for ecosystem-based adaptation”. To evaluate this, detailed information on the respective institution's economic performance Is necessary (among others). Furthermore, personal data (name, email-address) of a contact person is requested to be able to send the results of the evaluation automatically thereafter. None of this collected data is used with third parties later on. The collected data is used by the MEbA-team for (1) statistical purposes and (2) to potentially contact participating institutions with the offer to participate in the current project or similar projects in the future. This would be done via email with the sole reason of offering project participation.
If the user provides unique identifying information (other than within the MEbA-Quickscan), such as name, address and other information on forms stored on this site, such information will be used only for statistical purposes and will not be published for general access.
The MEbA-Team, however, assumes no responsibility for the security of any of this information.
