Newsletter

If you choose to subscribe to our e-newsletter we will ask you for your email address. No further personal information is required. The submission of any other separately marked data is voluntary and is used to be able to address you personally.

For the subscription to our newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in process. This means that once you have subscribed, we will send you an email to the email address you gave us with which we request that you confirm your subscription. We also store the IP addresses you used at subscription and confirmation. The purpose of this process is to be able to prove that you subscribed and to be able to clear up any misuse of your personal data. The email address is only used in order to properly address the newsletter emails you requested.
Please note that your user actions are analyzed when sending the newsletter in order to optimize and evaluate it. Therefore, our newsletter contains so-called web beacons. A web beacon is a miniature image which lets us know when you opened one of our emails and which links in the email you clicked. Please note that sending the newsletter without the web beacon is not possible.

Your consent is the legal basis according to Art. 6 Sec. 1 lit. a GDPR for the use of data to send the newsletter and the processing of the data to optimize and evaluate the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time, with total autonomy and without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the standard rates. A message in text form to the above contact data (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this. Of course you can also unsubscribe by clicking on the unsubscribe link that is included at the bottom of every newsletter email you receive from us.
Our newsletters are sent out via the MailChimp platform, a trademark of The Rocket Science Group. Therefore the above mentioned data is transferred or processed by MailChimp as our data processor.

 

Petitions

If you choose to sign any of our petitions, we will ask you for the following details: your name, city, country, and email address. Fields which are mandatory for the signing are marked; other fields are voluntary. We also store the IP addresses you used at the time of signing. The purpose of this process is to be able to prove that you signed and to be able to clear up any misuse of your personal data. These details are stored securely by us and will not be transferred to any third party. Neither are they published on our website. We will use them to count all the supporters of our petition. At times we may publicize the total number of supporters, but without showing any individual personal data. Your consent is the legal basis according to Art. 6 Sec. 1 lit. a GDPR for the use of data. You can remove your date from our Petition at any time, with total autonomy and without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the standard rates. A message in text form to the above contact data (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this.

YouTube

We have integrated components of YouTube of YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA on this website. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. YouTube is an internet video portal which allows video publishers to upload videoclips for free and allows other users to watch, rate and comment these videos also for free.

The videos are embedded in enhanced privacy mode. When such an embedded YouTube video is played, YouTube places a cookie on the device of the user. YouTube uses these cookies inter alia in order to compile video statistics, to prevent fraud and to improve user-friendliness. This also leads to a connection with the Google DoubleClick Network. When you start the video, other data processing operations may be triggered. We have no influence on this. YouTube and Google are informed which particular subpage of our website you have visited.

If you are logged into YouTube at the same time, YouTube can match the transmitted data to the relevant YouTube account. This matching can be prevented by logging out of your YouTube account before you access our website.

The data protection regulations published by YouTube, which can be found at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provide information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google. Legal basis is Art. 6 Sec. 1 lit. f GDPR, since the embedding of YouTube allows us to show our users YouTube videos.
