Privacy Policy

We collect, use and store the personal data you provide in compliance with the strict data protection laws in Germany (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz). Below we inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of data.

Collection and processing of data

Each access to our website and each download of a file on this website are logged. This storage is for internal system-related and statistical purposes. The following are logged: name of file accessed, date and time of access, data volume transferred, notification of successful retrieval, web browser and enquiring domain. In addition, the IP addresses of the enquiring computer are logged. Additional personal data is only collected if you provide information voluntarily, for instance by submitting an enquiry or registration, by entering into a contract, or via the settings in your browser.

Use of cookies

Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a small text file that is sent to your browser and stored temporarily on the hard drive of your computer when you visit a website. Every time you access the website again, your browser sends the cookie received earlier back to the server. The server can then analyse the information obtained by this procedure in various ways. For example, cookies are used to facilitate your visit as you navigate to different pages on a website. If you want to disable cookies, you can do so by changing the settings of your web browser, that is, the software application for accessing and viewing websites (e.g. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera or Safari).

Use of your data for the newsletter

If you have subscribed to our newsletter, the German Children and Youth Foundation uses your data (first name, surname, e-mail address) to send you information about new activities, offerings etc.

When you subscribe to the newsletter, a ‘double opt-in process’ applies. In other words, you receive the newsletter only if you reconfirm the subscription you took out via our website by activating a link we send to you by e-mail. By subscribing to the newsletter, you agree to allow the German Children and Youth Foundation to use your name and your e-mail address to send you information about the German Children and Youth Foundation and its activities.

Your personal data will only be transmitted or otherwise passed on to third parties if this is required for contract implementation or for invoicing purposes or if you have given your prior consent.
