- the processing is necessary for the execution of a contract with you,

the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection in not disclosing your data.

Collection of general information when visiting our website
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected using a cookie. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar information. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions about your person.
This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the contents of websites requested by you and is mandatory when using the Internet. It is processed in particular for the following purposes:
- Ensuring that the website can be connected without problems,
- Ensuring a smooth use of our website,
- Evaluation of system security and stability and
- for other administrative purposes.
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person. The recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if applicable, processors.
Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us, if necessary, in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.
On the basis of your expressly given consent, we will regularly send you our newsletter or comparable information by e-mail to your specified e-mail address.
To receive the newsletter, it is sufficient to enter your e-mail address. If you register to receive our newsletter, the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers can also be informed by e-mail about circumstances relevant to the service or registration (for example changes to the newsletter offer or technical conditions).
For an effective registration we need a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that a registration is actually made by the owner of an e-mail address, we use the “double opt-in” procedure. For this purpose, we log the ordering of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the hereby requested answer. Further data is not collected. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of your personal data and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. There is a corresponding link in every newsletter. You can also unsubscribe at any time directly on this website or inform us of your wish via the contact option at the end of this data protection notice.
If you contact us by e-mail or contact form with regard to questions of any kind, you give us your voluntary consent for the purpose of contacting us. For this purpose, you are required to provide a valid e-mail address. This serves to assign the inquiry and to answer it afterwards. The indication of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your enquiry and for possible follow-up questions. Personal data will be automatically deleted after completion of your inquiry.
This website uses the donation form of twingle GmbH, Prinzenallee 74, 13357 Berlin, Germany. The twingle GmbH provides the technical platform for the donation process for this donation form. The data you enter when making a donation (e.g. address, bank details, etc.) will only be stored by twingle on servers in Germany for the purpose of processing the donation. We have concluded a contract with twingle for order data processing and when using the twingle donation form we fully implement the strict requirements of the EU data protection basic
regulation and the German data protection authorities. Your data will be transmitted on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO (consent) and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO (processing for the fulfilment of a contract). If you have given your consent for data processing, you can revoke your consent at any time. A revocation does not affect the effectiveness of past data processing operations.
Use of Matomo
In the donation form of twingle, data is collected and stored using the web analysis service software Matomo (www.matomo.org), a service of the provider InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, (“Matomo”) on the basis of twingle’s legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation purposes in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. From this data, pseudonymised user profiles can be created and evaluated for the same purpose. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the Internet browser of the page visitor. The cookies enable, among other things, the recognition of the Internet browser. The data collected using Matomo technology (including your pseudonymised IP address) is processed on twingle servers. The information generated by the cookie in the pseudonymous user profile is not used to personally identify the visitor to this website and is not merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. If you do not agree with the storage and evaluation of this data from your visit, you can object to its storage and use at any time by mouse click. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser, which means that Matomo does not collect any session data. Please note that the complete deletion of your cookies means that the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and may have to be reactivated by you.
Collection, processing and use of personal data for donations
In the case of a donation, we collect and use your personal data only to the extent necessary to fulfil and process your donation and, if applicable, to process your enquiries. The provision of the data is necessary for the processing of the donation process. A non-delivery means that your donation cannot be received. Processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO and is necessary for the processing of the donation. Your data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. Excluded from this are only our service partners, which we need to process the donation or service providers we use in the context of order processing. In addition to the recipients named in the respective clauses of this data protection declaration, these are, for example, recipients of the following categories: Payment service provider, service provider for the dispatch of the donation receipt. In all cases we strictly observe the legal requirements. The scope of data transmission is limited to a minimum. You have the possibility to revoke your consent to data processing at any time. A revocation does not affect the effectiveness of past data processing operations
Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)
In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Web fonts are cached in your browser to prevent multiple downloads. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prevents access, content will be displayed in a default font.
Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – although it is currently unclear whether and for what purposes – that the operators of such libraries collect data.
Use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data on the use of the map functions by visitors. Further information about data processing by Google can be found in the Google data protection information. There you can also change your personal data protection settings in the data protection centre.
Detailed instructions on how to manage your own data in connection with Google products can be found here.
Embedded YouTube videos
On some of our websites we embed Youtube videos. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is established to Youtube servers. This tells Youtube which pages you visit. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by first logging out of your Youtube account.
If you’ve disabled cookies for the Google Ad program, you won’t be able to expect to receive cookies when you watch Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always meets the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration then applies to your renewed visit.
