Purposes of data processing by the data controller and third parties
We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration. Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those stated. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
– you have given your express consent to this, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO
– the processing is necessary for the execution of a contract with you, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO
– the processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO
– the processing is necessary to safeguard legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Provision of our statutory and business services
We process the data of our members, supporters, interested parties, customers or other persons in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. DSGVO, insofar as we offer them contractual services or act within the framework of an existing business relationship, e.g. with members, or are themselves recipients of services and benefits. Otherwise, we process the data of data subjects pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interests, e.g. in the case of administrative tasks or public relations work.
The data processed, the type, scope and purpose and the necessity of their processing are determined by the underlying contractual relationship. This basically includes the inventory and master data of the persons (e.g., name, address, etc.), as well as the contact data (e.g., e-mail address, telephone, etc.), the contract data (e.g., services used, contents and information communicated, names of contact persons) and, if we offer services or products subject to payment obligations, payment data (e.g., bank details, payment history, etc.).
Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as provided for by the various storage periods provided for by law. This is determined according to the respective tasks and contractual relationships. In the case of business processing, we keep the data for as long as it is relevant to the business transaction and also with regard to any warranty or liability obligations. After the respective purpose has ceased or these periods have expired, the corresponding data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
Your rights of data subjects
If personal data are processed by you, you are affected in the sense of the DSGVO. You can exercise the following rights at any time using the contact details provided by the person responsible:
– Information about your data stored with us and their processing, Art. 15 DSGVO
– Correction of incorrect personal data, Art. 16 DSGVO
– Deletion of your data stored with us, Art. 17 DSGVO
– Restriction of data processing if we are not yet allowed to delete your data due to legal obligations, Art. 18 DSGVO
– Objection against the processing of your data by us, Art. 21 DSGVO and
– Data transferability if you have consented to data processing or have concluded a contract with us, Art. 20 DSGVO.
If you have given us your consent, you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future, Art. 7 para. 3 DSGVO.
You may at any time lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority responsible for you. Your competent supervisory authority depends on the federal state of your residence, your work or the presumed violation. A list of the supervisory authorities (for the non-public sector) with their addresses can be found here: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon is displayed in your browser’s address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Opposition to promotional emails
We hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited advertising material, such as email spam, is received.
Collecting general information when you visit our website
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected by means of a cookie. These so-called “server log files” contain, for example, the type of browser, the operating system used, your IP address, date and time of access and similar information.
This information does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. It is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content requested by you on the website and is mandatory when using the Internet.
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest in ensuring the problem-free establishment of a connection and the use of our website. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. The data for the provision of the website will be deleted after the end of the respective session. The collection of data for the provision of the website and its storage in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. Therefore, there is no possibility to object.
Our system sets two technically necessary cookies: “wp-settings” and “wp-settings-time”. These are necessary to make our website more user-friendly, i.e. to save language settings, backend login, WP settings.
Cookies that are not technically necessary, such as for the analysis of surfing behaviour, are not used on our pages.
Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.
