Collection of personal data and purpose of data processing

We process your personal data only if this if required to provide a functional website, our content and services.

If you use our website for purely information purposes, i.e. if you do not contact us using the contact form or transmit information in any other way, we only collect personal data transmitted by your browser to our server (protocol data). If you would like to view our website, our system records the following data that are required by us for technical reasons to display our website to you and to guarantee stability and security:

  • Your IP address
  • Date and time of the enquiry
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (entry page)
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Transferred data volume
  • Website sending the request
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software

These data are also saved in our system’s log files. We do not save these data together with other personal data. Your protocol data are only processed by us if this is required for the operation, security and optimisation of our website.

When you contact us by email, telephone or through the contact form, we process your personal data solely to answer your query and for possible follow-up questions.

Our website enables you to make an online donation via PayPal or with a credit card. To do so, you are forwarded directly to the PayPal website and asked either to input your payment information needed to process the payment or to register with your PayPal account. In this respect, PayPal’s data protection notice and terms and conditions of business apply:

The data processed by PayPal include, for example, name and address, bank details (e.g. credit card numbers, passwords, verification number), the donation amount and details of the recipient. This information is to carry out the transactions. However, the input data are only processed by the payment service provider, i.e. we do not receive any account or credit card-related information, but only information relating to confirmation of payment (first name, last name, address, amount and purpose of donation). We use these data to send you a donation certificate, our regular annual bulletin and sometimes a thank-you letter. This also applies if you have made your donation through our bank account using information on the website rather than via our website.

You are also listed as a donor in our donor register on the website or in our donor table on the respective fountain. We seek your consent in advance before we do this.

We normally use the collected personal data only within our foundation, subject to transmission to third parties that support us in the administration of the foundation and in relation to the provision of this website (e.g. host provider).
