1. Privacy at a glance

General information

The following notes provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. Personal data is any data by which you can be personally identified. You can find detailed information on the subject of data protection in our privacy declaration listed below this text.

Data collection on our website

Who is responsible for data collection on this website?

The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find his contact details in the printing details of this website.

How do we collect your data?

Your data is collected on the one hand by you providing it to us. This can be, for example, data that you enter in a contact form.

Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of page view). The collection of this data takes place automatically as soon as you enter our website.

What do we use your data for?

Some of the data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.

What rights do you have regarding your data?

You have the right at any time to receive information free of charge about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose as well as for further questions on the subject of privacy, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the printing details. In addition, you have the right to file a complaint with the competent regulator.

You also have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data in certain circumstances. Details of this can be found in the privacy policy under “Right to restriction of processing”.

Analytics and third-party tools

When visiting our website, your surfing behaviour may be statistically evaluated. This is done primarily with cookies and with so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually anonymous; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. You can find detailed information on this in the following privacy declaration.

You can object to this evaluation. We will inform you about the objection options in this privacy policy.

2. General information and mandatory data

Privacy

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory privacy regulations and this privacy declaration.

When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data are data that can be used to identify you personally. This privacy policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by email) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Reference to the data controller

The data controller for this website is:

Verband für Gedenkkultur e.V.
Bad Nauheimer Str. 4
64289 Darmstadt

Telefon: +49 (0) 61 51 – 734 75 944
E-Mail: info@gedenkkultur.de

The controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke previously granted consent at any time. An informal communication by email to us is sufficient for this purpose. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in individual cases and to direct publicity (Art. 21 GDPR)

If the data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective statutory basis on which the processing is based can be found in this privacy policy. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objection under Article 21(1) GDPR).

If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct publicity, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such publicity; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct publicity. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for direct publicity purposes (objection under Art. 21 (2) GDPR).

Right to complain to the competent regulator

In the event of a breach of the GDPR, data subjects will have the right to lodge a complaint with a regulator, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence or place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right to lodge a complaint will be without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol on your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you send to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion and correction

Within the context of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing, as well as the right to correct, block or delete this data if necessary. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the printing details.

Right to restrict processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the printing details. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify it. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
  • • If you have lodged an objection under Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may – apart from storage – only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Objection to advertising emails

The use of contact data published within the context of the printing details obligation for the purpose of sending advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam mails.

3. Data collection on our website

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of its website – for this purpose, the server log files must be collected.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal communication by email to us is sufficient for this. The lawfulness of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Cookies

We use cookies on our website. Some of them are essential, while others help us to improve this website and your experience.

4. Newsletter

Newsletter details

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and agree to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example using the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The lawfulness of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.
