Data protection and data security for the supporters and partners of our foundation as well as for interested parties and users of our website are of great importance to our foundation. Transparency regarding the processing of your personal data as well as the protection of your data are therefore particularly important to us. This declaration provides you with an overview of how your personal data is collected and processed when you use our website and what you can do yourself to improve the protection of your data.
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. The decisive factor is whether the data collected can be related to a person. This includes information such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address.
Information that is not directly related to your real identity - such as favourite websites or the number of users of a site - is not personal data.
When you visit our website, our web servers temporarily store the connection data of the requesting computer, the web pages you visit on our site, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of the browser and operating system type used as well as the website from which you visit us, as standard for the purpose of system security.
Additional personal information such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address is not collected unless you provide this information voluntarily, e.g. as part of a registration, a survey, a competition, for the performance of a contract or a request for information.
If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (email addresses, name, addresses) is given, the input of these data takes place voluntarily. E-mails are transmitted via a contact form. If you send us such a message, your personal data will only be collected to the extent necessary for a reply.
The e-mail is transmitted encrypted on our website under a Secure Socket License (SSL). We use the personal data you provide exclusively for the purpose of the technical administration of the websites and to fulfil your wishes and requirements, i.e. generally to process the contract concluded with you or to answer your enquiry.
We also use this data for service-related or product-related surveys, marketing purposes and statistical purposes only insofar as you have given us your prior consent or if you have not objected to this - insofar as this is provided for by legal regulations. Your personal data will not be passed on, sold or otherwise transferred to third parties unless this is necessary for the purpose of processing the contract or you have given your express consent.
Any consent given can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
