    Your rights as a data subject

    Every data subject has the following rights:

    In addition, the data subject also has a general right of objection (cf. Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR). In this case, the objection to data processing must be justified. If data processing is based on consent, your consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.

    III. For the processing of personal data

    In the following we would like to give you an overview of how we guarantee the protection of your personal data when you access our website and what types of personal data we process for what purposes and to what extent.

    Processing of data when accessing our website - log files
    When accessing our website, information of a general nature is automatically recorded. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar. In addition, the IP address is transmitted and used to use the service you have requested. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet.

    According to our IT security concept, the resulting log file data is stored for a period of three months in order to detect and analyze any attacks on our website. The IP address is removed from the logs after seven days. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 f) GDPR.

    Notes on ensuring data security
    We take technical and operational security precautions on our website to protect the personal data stored by us from access by third parties, loss or misuse and to enable secure data transfer.

    We have to point out that due to the structure of the Internet, third parties may access data unintentionally. It is therefore also your responsibility to protect your data against misuse by encryption or in some other way. Without appropriate protective measures, unencrypted transmitted data in particular can be read by third parties, even if this is done by e-mail.

    Membership and Associate Membership
    If you decide to become a member of the non-profit cooperative act for transformation, acc. eG, we collect and store personal data from you. This includes name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, bank details and IP address.

    Personal data will be used to administer the membership until the end of the membership or sponsoring membership. We use your name and address to issue certificates of membership and payment of the membership fee. We use your e-mail address and telephone number to be able to get in touch with you. In addition, we inform you about the work of the cooperative supported by the membership and the projects, this only corresponds to topics that are relevant to the membership and therefore there is a legitimate interest in sending you this information. This includes, for example, the invitation to the annual general assembly by e-mail.

    Notes on the integration of third-party services

    To collect donations, we use betterplace.org, a service provided by the gut.org non-profit corporation, Schlesische Straße 26, 10997 Berlin. Cookies can be set when using this service via our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser in order to be able to recognize your browser. You can object to data collection and storage at any time with effect for the future by setting your browser accordingly. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted. Please note that you will have to object again if you change your browser settings or access our website with a different browser.

    Our Cookie Policy
    General information on the use of cookies
    Our website uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device and saved by your browser. They serve to make our offers more user-friendly, effective and secure. We use both so-called temporary cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser ("session cookies"), as well as persistent (permanent) cookies.

    You have the choice whether you want to allow the setting of cookies. You can make changes in your browser settings. You have the choice of accepting all cookies, being informed when cookies are set, or rejecting all cookies. If you decide on the last variant, it is possible that you will not be able to use our offer in full.

    When using cookies, a distinction must be made between the absolutely necessary cookies and those for further purposes (measurement of access numbers, advertising purposes).

    Respecting "Do not track"
    Of course we respect "Do not track" (DNT). Depending on the browser, DNT is either a switch in the program settings or a module (add-on or plug-in) to be installed later. If this option is activated, your browser signals to our web server that you do not want any tracking measures without your explicit consent. We will then automatically deactivate all tracking functions on the server side.

    This also means that our websites are delivered without code for Matomo. This ensures the best possible data protection without you having to take any further measures with regard to our website.

    Depending on the Internet browser used, the procedure for activating the "Do not track" option differs. To do this, follow the links below:
