Collection of general information

In order to ensure smooth and stable operation of the services provided, to detect irregularities and errors, and for security reasons, for example to prevent and possibly ward off improper access by unauthorised third parties, the connections to the servers are logged in so-called log files when our website is accessed and retained for a certain period of time

The legal basis for this results from art. 6 (1) sentence 1 f) DSGVO. The legitimate interest follows from the reasons mentioned and an overriding, contrary interest of the data subject worthy of protection is not evident in the present case

The following information is stored until the time of automatic deletion:

  • Web server: host name / IP address of the requesting computer, date and time of access, name and URL of the accessed file, website from which the access occurs (referrer URL), browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer. The lead time is 7-8 days. The system administrators and persons in charge have access to this data.
  • Mail server SMTP of the sender, recipient and size of a received or sent email, host name / IP address of the connected computer, date and time of access. The lead time is 4-5 weeks. The system administrators have access to this data.
  • Mail server POP3 / IMAP: account name (email address) of the connecting account, host name / IP address of the connected computer, date and time of connection.
    The lead time is 7-8 days. The system administrators have access to this data.

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed in the following. We only share your personal data with third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent in accordance with art. 6 (1) sentence 1 a) DSGVO,
  • the disclosure is necessary in accordance with art. 6 (1) sentence 1 f) DSGVO for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in the non-disclosure of your data,
  • in the event that there is a legal obligation for the disclosure in accordance with art. 6 (1) sentence 1 c) DSGVO,
  • this is legally permissible and necessary for the processing of contractual relationships with you in accordance with art. 6 (1) sentence 1 b) DSGVO.

Online presence on social media platforms

We offer channels on various social media platforms where you can find information and contact us.
We have no influence on the processing of personal data by the respective platform operators.
Generally, when you visit our social media channels, cookies are stored in your browser by the platform operators. These store information on your usage behaviour or interests for market research and advertising purposes. The usage profiles obtained in this way – usually across devices – are used by the platform operators to show you personalised advertisements. The data processing may also affect persons who are not registered as users of the respective social media platform. Under certain circumstances, the platform operators may process your data outside the area of the European Union, which may make it more difficult to enforce your rights. However, when selecting our social media platforms, we make sure that the operators undertake to comply with EU data protection standards.
The processing of your personal data when visiting one of our social media pages is based on our legitimate interest in a diverse external presentation of our project and in the interaction between the public and our project.
The legal basis for this is art. 6 (1f) DSGVO. Under certain circumstances, you may also have given a platform operator consent to data processing, in which case the legal basis is art. 6 (1a) DSGVO.
Detailed information on data processing in connection with the use of our social media pages, objection options and assertion of information rights can be accessed in the privacy policies of the respective platform operators.

Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your hard drive when you use the following applications on our website. In these text files, certain data about your computer or your internet connection, such as IP address, browser used, operating system or similar, are automatically stored and reused by the aforementioned applications during future connections.

Embedded YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos on some of your sites. The operator of the respective plug-in is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with a YouTube plug-in, a connection to YouTube servers will be established. YouTube will then be informed which sites you visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out from your YouTube account first.
When a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.
If you have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad program, such cookies will not be activated when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block storage of cookies in the browser.
For more information on data protection in YouTube, please refer to the provider’s privacy policy available at:

Donation form

On our website, we offer users the option to make donations online. If a user chooses this option, the data entered in the corresponding form will be transmitted to us and stored. The form is provided by the Bank der Sozialwirtschaft AG (BFS). The data entered will be forwarded directly to the BFS and to the technical service providers used by the BFS to provide the form using an encrypted SSL connection in order to execute the donation order. The data will not be shared with other third parties. The legal basis for the processing of the IP address is art. 6 (1f) DSGVO and the legitimate interest to technically enable you to use the donation form.
The following data are collected with the form:
Full name (surname, first name) with title (optionally title and company name); address (street, house number, city, postal code, country); email address; bank data (IBAN); donation data (donation recipient, amount, donation/ purpose of donation, donation receipt requested)
Additionally for donations via credit cards: card type, card number, CVV/CVC verification number, validity period of the credit card
If a donation receipt is requested, we process the data in order to issue and send the according donation receipt.
The collected data is necessary for execution and implementation of the donation order. The user’s email address is required to confirm receipt of the donation. The data will not be used for any other purpose. The legal basis for data processing is art. 6 (1b) DSGVO.
The IP address of the user is also stored at the time of submitting the form. The IP address is used for fraud prevention and to prevent unauthorised transactions to the detriment of third parties. The legal basis for processing of the IP address is art. 6 (1f) DSGVO.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of bank data, this is the case immediately after the donation amount has been received. Where applicable, the address data will be stored after creation and dispatch of a donation receipt as all other data entered within the framework of tax retention obligations, but blocked for any other use. The IP address collected during the sending process is deleted after a period of seven days at the latest.
The users have the possibility to object to the processing of the data at any time. It should be noted, however, that in the event of an objection, the donation order cannot be executed as requested.
