Relevant legal basis
The following is an overview of the legal basis of the GDPR on the basis of which we process personal data. Please note that in addition to the provisions of the GDPR, national data protection regulations may apply in your or our country of residence or domicile. Furthermore, should more specific legal bases be decisive in individual cases, we will inform you of these in the data protection declaration.
- Consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a. DSGVO) – The data subject has given his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her for a specific purpose or purposes.
- Contractual performance and pre-contractual requests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b. DSGVO) – Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or for the performance of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the data subject.
- Rightful interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) – Processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, unless such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data.
National data protection regulations in Germany: In addition to the data protection regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation, national regulations on data protection apply in Germany. These include, in particular, the Act on Protection against Misuse of Personal Data in Data Processing (Federal Data Protection Act – BDSG). In particular, the BDSG contains special regulations on the right to information, the right to erasure, the right to object, the processing of special categories of personal data, processing for other purposes and transmission, as well as automated decision-making in individual cases, including profiling. Furthermore, it regulates data processing for employment purposes (Section 26 BDSG), in particular with regard to the establishment, implementation or termination of employment relationships as well as the consent of employees. Furthermore, state data protection laws of the individual federal states may apply.
We take appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk, in accordance with the law, taking into account the state of the art, the cost of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of the processing, as well as the various probabilities of occurrence and the level of risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons.
Measures include, in particular, ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data by controlling physical and electronic access to data as well as access to, entry into, disclosure of, assurance of availability of, and segregation of data concerning them. Furthermore, we have established procedures to ensure the exercise of data subjects’ rights, the deletion of data, and responses to data compromise. Furthermore, we already take the protection of personal data into account during the development or selection of hardware, software as well as procedures in accordance with the principle of data protection, through technology design and through data protection-friendly default settings.
Shortening of the IP address: If IP addresses are processed by us or by the service providers and technologies used and the processing of a full IP address is not required, the IP address is shortened (also known as “IP masking”). In this process, the last two digits or the last part of the IP address after a period are removed or replaced by wildcards. With the shortening of the IP address, the identification of a person by means of their IP address is to be prevented or made significantly more difficult.
SSL encryption (https): To protect your data transmitted via our online offer, we use SSL encryption. You can recognize such encrypted connections by the prefix https:// in the address line of your browser.
Performance of tasks according to articles of association or rules of procedure
We process the data of our members, supporters, interested parties, business partners or other persons (collectively “data subjects”) if we have a membership or other business relationship with them and perform our tasks and are recipients of services and benefits. Otherwise, we process the data of data subjects on the basis of our legitimate interests, e.g. when it is a matter of administrative tasks or public relations work.
The data processed in this context, the nature, scope and purpose and the necessity of their processing, are determined by the underlying membership or contractual relationship, from which also the necessity of any data disclosures arise (otherwise, we point to required data).
We delete data that is no longer required to fulfill our statutory and business purposes. This is determined according to the respective tasks and contractual relationships. We retain the data for as long as they may be relevant for business processing, as well as with regard to any warranty or liability obligations based on our legitimate interest in regulating them. The necessity of retaining the data is reviewed regularly; in all other respects, the statutory retention obligations apply.
- Types of data processed: Inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), payment data (e.g. bank details, invoices, payment history), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), contract data (e.g. subject matter of contract, term, customer category).
- Data subjects: Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services), members, business and contractual partners.
- Purposes of processing: Providing contractual services and customer service, contact requests and communication, managing and responding to requests.
- Legal basis: Contract performance and pre-contractual requests (Art. 6 para 1 p. 1 lit. b. DSGVO), Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para 1 p. 1 lit. f. DSGVO).
Provision of the online offer and web hosting
In order to provide our online offer securely and efficiently, we use the services of one or more web hosting providers, from whose servers (or servers managed by them) the online offer can be accessed. For these purposes, we may use infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services as well as security services and technical maintenance services.
The data processed in the course of providing the hosting service may include all information relating to the users of our online service, which is generated in the course of use and communication. This regularly includes the IP address, which is necessary to be able to deliver the content of online offers to browsers, and all entries made within our online offer or from websites.
Email sending and hosting: The web hosting services we use also include the sending, receiving as well as storing of e-mails. For these purposes, the addresses of the recipients and senders as well as further information regarding the e-mail dispatch (e.g. the providers involved) and the contents of the respective e-mails are processed. The aforementioned data may also be processed for SPAM detection purposes. Please note that e-mails are generally not sent encrypted on the Internet. As a rule, e-mails are encrypted in transit, but (unless a so-called end-to-end encryption method is used) not on the servers from which they are sent and received. We can therefore not assume any responsibility for the transmission path of the e-mails between the sender and the reception on our server.
Collection of access data and log files: We ourselves (or our web hosting provider) collect data on each access to the server (so-called server log files). The server log files may include the address and name of the web pages and files accessed, date and time of access, data volumes transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page) and, as a rule, IP addresses and the requesting provider.
The server log files can be used on the one hand for security purposes, e.g. to avoid overloading the servers (especially in the case of abusive attacks, so-called DDoS attacks), and on the other hand to ensure the utilization of the servers and their stability.
- Types of data processed: Content data (e.g. entries in online forms), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. Device information, IP addresses).
- Data subjects: Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).
- Purposes of processing: Provision of our online offer and user experience.
- Legal basis: Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. DSGVO).
Installed services and service providers:
When contacting us (e.g. via contact form, email, phone or via social media), the information of the inquiring persons is processed as far as this is necessary to answer the contact requests and any requested actions.
The response to the contact requests in the context of contractual or pre-contractual relationships is carried out to fulfill our contractual obligations or to respond to (pre)contractual requests and otherwise on the basis of the legitimate interests in responding to the requests.
- Types of data processed: Inventory data (e.g. names, addresses), contact data (e.g. e-mail, telephone numbers), content data (e.g. entries in online forms).
- Data subjects: Communication partners.
- Purposes of processing: Contact requests and communication.
- Legal basis: Contract performance and pre-contractual inquiries (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b. DSGVO), Legitimate Interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. DSGVO).
Presence on social networks (social media)
We maintain online presences within social networks and process user data within this framework in order to communicate with users active there or to offer information about us.
We point out that in the process, user data may be processed outside the area of the European Union. This may result in risks for users, because, for example, the enforcement of the rights of users could be made more difficult.
Furthermore, user data within social networks is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created based on the usage behavior and resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the networks that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users’ computers, in which the usage behavior and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data independent of the devices used by the users may also be stored in the usage profiles (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).
For a detailed presentation of the respective forms of processing and the options to object (opt-out), we refer to the privacy statements and information provided by the operators of the respective networks.
Also in the case of information requests and the assertion of data subject rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to the users’ data and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. If you still need help, then you can contact us.
Facebook: We are jointly responsible with Facebook Ireland Ltd. for the collection (but not the further processing) of data from visitors to our Facebook page (so-called “fan page”). This data includes information about the types of content users view or interact with, or the actions they take (see under “Things You and Others Do and Provide” in the Facebook Data Policy: https://www. facebook.com/policy), as well as information about the devices users use (e.g., IP addresses, operating system, browser type, language settings, cookie data; see under “Device Information” in the Facebook Data Policy Statement: https://www.facebook.com/policy). As explained in the Facebook Data Policy under “How do we use this information?”, Facebook also collects and uses information to provide analytics services, called “Page Insights,” to Page operators to provide them with insights about how people interact with their Pages and with content associated with them. We have entered into a special agreement with Facebook (“Page Insights Information,” https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum), which governs in particular which security measures Facebook must observe and in which Facebook has agreed to fulfill data subject rights (i.e., users can direct information or deletion requests to Facebook, for example). The rights of users (in particular to information, deletion, objection and complaint to the competent supervisory authority), are not restricted by the agreements with Facebook. Further information can be found in the “Information on Page Insights” (https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/information_about_page_insights_data).
- Types of data processed: Contact data (e.g. email, phone numbers), content data (e.g. input in online forms), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), meta/communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses).
- People concerned: Users (e.g. website visitors, users of online services).
- Purposes of processing: Contact requests and communication, feedback (e.g. collecting feedback via online form), marketing.
- Legal basis: Legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f. DSGVO).
Services and service providers used:
Deletion of data
The data processed by us will be deleted in accordance with legal requirements as soon as their consents permitted for processing are revoked or other permissions cease to apply (e.g. if the purpose of processing this data has ceased to apply or it is not necessary for the purpose).
If the data are not deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing will be limited to these purposes. That is, the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for reasons of commercial or tax law or whose storage is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural person or legal entity.
Our privacy notices may also contain further information on the retention and deletion of data, which shall have priority for the respective processing operations.
Rights of data subjects
