Protection of personal data

We are very pleased about your interest in our association. Data protection is a particular priority for the board of The LGBT life e.V. The use of The LGBT life e.V. website is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to use special services of our association via our website, the processing of personal data may become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legitimate reason for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of the data subject shall always be in accordance with the national data protection regulations applicable to The LGBT life e.V.. With this data protection declaration, our association wishes to inform the public of the type, scope and purpose of the personal data that we collect, use and process. In addition, data subjects are informed of their rights through this data protection declaration.

The LGBT life e.V. as controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this site. Nevertheless, data transmission over the Internet can always have security vulnerabilities, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each data subject may transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by telephone.

1. definitions

The LGBT life e.V.'s data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Regulation (EC) in adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration must be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

 

In this data protection declaration, we use the following terms in particular:

(a) personal data.

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is a person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as name, identification number, location data, online identity or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

(f) Pseudonymization.

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is stored separately and subject to technical and organizational measures that ensure that personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person

(g) Controller or person responsible for data processing

The controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that, alone or in association with others, determines the purposes and means of processing personal data.

3. Cookies

The LGBT life e.V. website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are saved on your computer system via your Internet browser.

Many Internet pages and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain what is known as a cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique cookie ID. It consists of a string of characters with which Internet pages and servers can be linked to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie has been stored. This allows visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by a unique cookie identifier.

 

With the help of a cookie, information and offers on our website can be optimized from the user's perspective. As mentioned above, cookies allow us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, a user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter their access data each time they visit the website, because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is an online shopping cart cookie. The online store remembers the products that the customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart by means of a cookie.

The data subject can, at any time, prohibit the installation of cookies on our website through the appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently reject the installation of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time by the Internet browser or other programs. This is possible with all common Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the installation of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website can be fully accessed.

4. Collection of general data and information

The LGBT life e.V. website collects a series of general data and information each time a data subject or automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the server log files. The following data may be collected: (1) the type and version of the browser used, (2) the operating system used by the access system, (3) the website from which the access system accesses our site (the so-called referrer), (4) the sub-sites to which the access system accesses our site, (5) the date and time of access to the site, (6) the internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the access system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to prevent danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

By using this general data and information, The LGBT life e.V. does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is necessary (1) to properly deliver our website content, (2) to optimize our website content and advertising on our website, (3) to ensure the long-term performance of our information technology systems and our website technology, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary to prosecute a cyberattack. Therefore, Quarteera e.V. analyzes the anonymously collected data and information on the one hand, and on the other hand, in order to enhance data protection and data security of our association, in order to ultimately provide an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by the data subject.

We use Netlify Inc, 610 22nd Street, Suite 315, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA, as our hosting provider. When you call one of our websites, your browser establishes a connection to a server at Netlify, Inc. This server stores some information about the connection in a log file. Netlify provides additional information about data collection and use, as well as your rights and protections in this regard, in the data protection information available at www.netlify.com/privacy/. This storage takes place on the legal basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) of the DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is the improvement, stability, functionality and security of our website. The data are deleted after 30 days at the latest, unless further storage is required for evidentiary purposes. Otherwise, the data will not be fully or partially deleted until the final clarification of the incident.

5. Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility to register on the controller's website by providing personal data. The personal data that are transmitted to the data controller in this context are the result of the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject is collected and stored exclusively for the controller's internal use and for its own purposes. The controller may arrange for the data to be transmitted to one or more processors, such as a parcel delivery service provider, which will also use the personal data solely for internal use relating to the controller.

When registering on the controller's website, the IP address assigned by the data subject's Internet Service Provider (ISP), date and time of registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the abuse of our services and, if necessary, this data enables criminal offenses to be clarified. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the data controller. In principle, this data is not transferred to third parties, unless there is a legal obligation to transfer it or if the transfer serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject by voluntary submission of personal data serves the purpose of the controller to offer the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registrants may at any time change the personal data provided upon registration or delete them completely from the controller's database.

The controller must at any time, upon request, provide any data subject with information on what personal data is stored about the data subject. In addition, the controller shall correct or delete personal data at the request or direction of the data subject, unless it conflicts with any statutory data retention obligations. All personnel of the controller shall be available to the data subject as contact persons in this context.

6. subscribing to our newsletter

On the website of The LGBT life e.V., users have the opportunity to subscribe to our association's newsletter. The personal data to be transmitted to the controller when subscribing to the newsletter is specified in the input mask used for this purpose.

The LGBT life e.V. regularly informs its customers and business partners about the association's offers and news with its newsletter. The newsletter of our association can only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject has registered to receive the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation letter will be sent to the e-mail address specified by the data subject for the first time to send the newsletter using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation letter serves to verify whether the owner of the email address, as a data subject, has permitted the receipt of the newsletter.

When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration as well as the date and time of registration, which is assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary so that the (possible) misuse of the data subject's e-mail address can be traced at a later date, and therefore serves as a legal guarantee for the controller.

Your e-mail address that we receive in connection with a partnership or a jointly implemented project will be used exclusively for direct communication in the form of our newsletter about such projects, unless you object to such use. You can opt out of the use of your email address at any time without incurring any costs other than the basic costs of data transmission. Your objection (and therefore cancellation of our mailing list) can be made by sending an appropriate message to our email address (see imprint).

The personal data collected in the context of newsletter registration is used exclusively for sending our newsletter. In addition, newsletter subscribers may be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or the associated registration, such as in the case of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in technical conditions. No personal data collected as part of the mailing service will be disclosed to third parties. The data subject may unsubscribe from our newsletter service at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given to us for the newsletter service, can be revoked at any time. To revoke consent, you can find a corresponding link in each newsletter. You can also unsubscribe at any time directly from the newsletter on the website of the controller or inform the controller in another way.

7. News tracking

The LGBT life e.V. newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in such emails sent in HTML format to allow log files to be recorded and analyzed. This allows you to statistically assess the success or failure of your online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, The LGBT life e.V. can see whether and when an email was opened by the data subject, as well as which links in the email were triggered by the data subject.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the distribution of the newsletters and to better tailor the content of future newsletters to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. Data subjects shall have the right to revoke at any time the separate consent declaration made in this regard by means of a double consent procedure. Upon revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the data controller. The LGBT life e.V. automatically treats a withdrawal from receiving the newsletter as a revocation.

8. how to contact us through the website

The website of The LGBT life e.V. contains voluntarily provided information to enable a quick electronic contact to our association, as well as direct contact with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called email address (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject is saved automatically. After a request, a helpdesk ticket is usually automatically created with your request, which is then processed by us. Personal data voluntarily provided by the data subject to the data controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or communicating with the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. If a longer retention is not required due to legal obligations, your data will normally be deleted five years after the final response to your request.

9. blog comments function on the website

The LGBT life e.V. offers users the ability to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog located on the controller's website. A blog is a portal on a website, usually public, where one or more people, called bloggers or web bloggers, can publish articles or write down thoughts in what are called blog posts. Blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.

If the data subject leaves a comment on a blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the data subject, the time the comment was entered and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject will be saved and published. In addition, the IP address assigned by the person's Internet Service Provider (ISP) is recorded. The IP address is stored for security purposes and in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties by publishing a comment or posting illegal content. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the controller's own interest, so that he or she can exonerate himself or herself in the event of a breach. The collected personal data will not be disclosed to third parties, unless such disclosure is required by law or serves the legal protection of the controller.

10. subscribing to blog comments on the website

Comments posted on The LGBT life e.V. blog can generally be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, the commenter has the option to subscribe to comments following his or her comment on a particular blog post.

 

If the data subject selects the option to subscribe to comments, the controller sends an automatic e-mail confirmation to verify, as part of the double opt-in procedure, that the owner of the specified e-mail address has indeed selected this option. The ability to subscribe to comments can be terminated at any time.

11. regular deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the storage purpose or in the cases stipulated in the European directive and regulations or other legislation in the laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the storage purpose ceases to be valid or the storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Maker Regulation or other competent legislative authority expires, the personal data will be regularly blocked or deleted in accordance with the legislative provisions.

    The processing is unlawful, the data subject objects to the deletion of the personal data and requests that the use of the personal data be restricted instead.

    The controller no longer needs the personal data for processing purposes, but the data subject needs it to establish, exercise or defend legitimate claims.

    The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the Data Protection Regulation, and it is not yet clear whether the controller's legitimate grounds prevail over those of the data subject.

    If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by The LGBT life e.V., he or she may at any time contact any employee of the controller. An employee of The LGBT life e.V. shall arrange the restriction of processing.

e) The right to data portability

Any person interested in the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, to obtain the personal data concerning him which have been supplied by the data subject to the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. The data subject shall also have the right to transmit such data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, where the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) GDPR and the processing is performed by automated means, except where the processing is necessary to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in exercise of official powers vested in the controller.

In addition, in exercising the right to data portability under Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to obtain the direct transfer of personal data from one controller to another controller, if this is technically possible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact any employee of The LGBT life e.V.

(f) Right to object

Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, at any time to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing concerning his or her personal data that is carried out under Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR. This also applies to profiling on the basis of these provisions.

The LGBT life e.V. will no longer process personal data in the event of an objection unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If The LGBT life e.V. processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data processed for such marketing. This shall also apply to profiling insofar as it relates to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to processing for direct marketing purposes by The LGBT life e.V., The LGBT life e.V. will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject shall have the right, on grounds relating to his or her specific situation, to object to processing concerning his or her personal data that is carried out by The LGBT life e.V. for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) of the Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO), unless processing is necessary for a task carried out in the public interest.

In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact any employee of The LGBT life e.V. or another employee. The data subject may also exercise the right to object to the use of information society services notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC through automated procedures using technical specifications.

g) Automated solutions in individual cases, including profiling

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, not to be subjected to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal consequences for it or similarly significantly affects it, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or execution of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or Member State law, cat.

 

If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of the contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) it is taken with the explicit consent of the data subject, the LGBT life e.V. shall take appropriate measures to protect the data subject's rights and freedoms and its legitimate interests, which include at least the right of the data subject to participation by the controller, expression of its views and challenges to the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise rights with regard to automated decisions, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the controller.

13. Data protection in applications and application procedures

The controller collects and processes applicants' personal data in order to manage the application procedure. The processing can also take place electronically. This occurs in particular when the applicant sends the controller the relevant application documents electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If the data controller enters into an employment contract with the applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in accordance with legal provisions. If the data controller does not enter into an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will automatically be deleted two months after notification of the decision to refuse, provided that no other legitimate interests of the data controller conflict with such deletion. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, the obligation to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

14. Data protection with regard to counseling activities

The controller collects and processes the personal data of persons seeking help in order to provide advice (psychological, social, legal and other advice). The processing can also be done by electronic means. In particular, this applies when the person seeking help sends the relevant information and documents to the controller electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. In principle, consultations with us can be conducted anonymously. Personal data voluntarily provided by the data subject to the data controller will be stored for the purpose of consulting the data subject. Any data beyond this will only be processed on the basis of your explicit consent. We use a digital ticketing system for documenting procedures and quality assurance. As a rule, facts that become known to us in the course of counseling are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We may, however, pass this data on to government authorities or other counseling and support organizations if the person concerned has given his or her consent to this. This can take place, for example, in the form of statements or expert opinions about your personal situation. The data retention period depends on the legal retention obligations and is usually 10 years.

15. data protection with regard to membership, employment, services or volunteering.

The data controller collects and processes the personal data of its members, employees, suppliers and volunteers for the purpose of contract fulfillment. In principle, only data provided for the performance of the contract are processed. Any additional data will be processed on the basis of your explicit consent. Your data will be passed on to public authorities (e.g. tax authorities, social insurance agency, employers' liability insurance association, customs authorities, etc.) insofar as it takes precedence over legal regulations. Data will also be shared with external service providers and other contractors if necessary to fulfill the contract. This may be necessary to provide working equipment for data processing and communication, to record gratuities or fees, to record travel expenses, to record insurance payments, etc. Data will only be transferred to other external organizations if the person concerned has given his or her consent or if the transfer is permissible for reasons of overriding interest. The data retention period depends on the legal retention obligations and is usually 10 years after the termination of the contractual or membership relationship.

16. data protection provisions for the use and application of Facebook

The controller has integrated Facebook components on this site. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a social meeting place that functions on the Internet, an online community that usually allows users to communicate and interact with each other in a virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform for sharing opinions and experiences or allow an online community to provide personal or company-related information. Facebook allows social network users to create private profiles, upload photos and communicate, in particular through friend requests.

Facebook's operating company is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The controller of personal data, if the data subject resides outside of the United States or Canada, is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the data controller on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated is called up, the Internet browser of the data subject's IT system is automatically forced by the corresponding Facebook component to load a representation of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. A complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. As part of this technical procedure, Facebook receives information about which specific subpage of our website the data subject has visited.

If the data subject simultaneously logs in to Facebook, Facebook recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits each time the data subject accesses our website and for the duration of their stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the relevant Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, such as the "Like" button, or if the data subject posts a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the data subject's personal Facebook user account and stores this personal data.

Facebook always receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject has logged into Facebook at the same time as calling our website; this happens regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, he or she can prevent its transmission by logging out of his or her Facebook account before accessing our website.

The data policy published by Facebook, which can be accessed at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, contains information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains what settings Facebook offers to protect a data subject's privacy. In addition, there are various applications to suppress the transfer of data to Facebook. Such applications can be used by the data subject to suppress the transfer of data to Facebook.

17. Data protection provisions for the use and application of Google AdSense

The controller has integrated Google AdSense on this site. Google AdSense is an online service that allows you to place ads on third-party sites. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects ads displayed on third-party sites according to the content of the corresponding third-party site. Google AdSense allows you to target Internet users based on their interests, which is done by creating individual user profiles.

The operating company of the Google AdSense component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

The purpose of the Google AdSense component is to integrate advertising on our website. Google-AdSense installs a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting a cookie, Alphabet Inc. is able to analyze the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website managed by the data controller on which the Google AdSense component is integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject's information technology system automatically causes the corresponding Google AdSense component to transmit data to Alphabet Inc. for the purpose of placing online advertisements and billing commissions. During this technical procedure, Alphabet Inc. receives personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Alphabet Inc. uses in particular to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to calculate commissions.

The data subject may at any time prevent the installation of cookies on our website, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently refuse the installation of cookies. This setting of the Internet browser used will also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the data subject's information technology system. In addition, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other programs.

Google AdSense also uses so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic image that is embedded in Internet pages to provide a log file recording and analysis that allows for statistical evaluation. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Alphabet Inc. can find out whether and when a data subject opened a website, as well as which links the data subject clicked on. Among other things, tracking pixels are used to estimate the flow of visitors to a website.

Through Google AdSense, personal data and information, which also includes the IP address and is necessary for the collection and billing of the ads shown, is transmitted to Alphabet

Inc. in the United States. This personal data is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may transfer this personal data collected during the technical process to third parties.

For more information about Google-AdSense, see this link https://www.google.de/intl/de/adsense/start/.

18. Data protection provisions on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymization feature)

The controller has integrated the Google Analytics (with anonymization feature) component on this site. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, compilation, and evaluation of data about the behavior of website visitors. Among other things, the web analytics service collects data on which site the data subject came to the site from (so-called referrers), which subpages of the site were visited or how often and for how long a particular subpage was viewed. Web analytics is mainly used to optimize a website and to analyze the costs and benefits of online advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

The controller uses the "_gat._anonymizeIp" add-on for web analysis via Google Analytics. With this add-on, the IP address of the data subject's Internet connection is shortened and anonymized by Google if our Internet pages are accessed from a member state of the European Union or from another member state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our website. Google will use this data and information, in particular to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide other services relating to the use of our website.

Google Analytics sets a cookie on the data subject's information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting cookies, Google is able to analyze the use of our site. Each time one of the individual pages of this website managed by the data controller on which the Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject's information technology system is automatically forced by the corresponding Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google receives information about personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses in particular to track the origin of visitors and clicks, as well as for the subsequent calculation of commissions.

Personal information such as the time of access, the location from which access was made, and the frequency with which the data subject visited our website is stored by means of cookies. Each time the data subject visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States. Google may transfer this personal data collected in the course of the technical process to third parties.

The data subject may at any time prevent the installation of cookies on our website, as already described above, by means of the appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently refuse the installation of cookies. This setting of the Internet browser used will also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the data subject's information technology system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other programs.

In addition, the data subject has the opportunity to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to the use of this website, as well as to the processing of this data by Google and to prevent such processing. To do this, the data subject shall download and install the browser add-on via the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics by means of JavaScript that no data and information about the website visit can be transmitted to Google Analytics. Installing the browser add-on is considered an objection by Google. If the data subject's IT system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person under its control, the browser add-on can be reinstalled or activated.

19 Data protection provisions for the use and application of Google AdWord

Controller has integrated Google AdWords on this site. Google AdWords is an online advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in the search results of the Google search engine as well as in the Google ad network. Google AdWords allows the advertiser to specify certain keywords in advance, with which the ad is displayed in Google search engine results exclusively when the user finds a result matching the keyword in the search engine. On the Google ad network, ads are distributed to thematically relevant sites using an automatic algorithm and according to pre-specified keywords.

The operating company for Google AdWords services is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying user-relevant ads on third-party websites and in Google search engine results, and to display third-party ads on our website.

If the data subject accesses our website through Google ads, a so-called conversion cookie will be stored by Google in the data subject's information technology system. What a cookie is has already been explained above. The conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the data subject. A conversion cookie is used to keep track of whether certain subpages, such as an online shopping cart system, have been invoked on our website, provided that the cookie has not yet expired. A conversion cookie allows us and Google to track whether a data subject who has visited our site through an AdWords ad has made a sale, i.e. whether they have completed or cancelled a product purchase.

The data and information collected through the conversion cookie is used by Google to create statistics about visits to our website. These visit statistics, in turn, are used by us to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us through AdWords ads, that is, to determine the success or failure of the relevant AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our association nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google with which to identify the data subject.

A conversion cookie stores personal information, such as the websites the data subject visits. Each time the data subject visits our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States. Google may transfer this personal data collected by technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may at any time prevent the installation of cookies on our website, as already described above, through the appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently refuse the installation of cookies. This setting of the Internet browser used will also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the data subject's information technology system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other programs.

In addition, the data subject has the opportunity to object to advertising based on Google's interests. To do so, the data subject shall invoke the link www.google.de/settings/ads from any Internet browser he or she uses and make the necessary settings there.

We are very pleased with your interest in our association. Data protection is a particular priority for the board of The LGBT life e.V. The use of The LGBT life e.V. website is possible without specifying personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to use special services of our association via our website, the processing of personal data may become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legitimate reason for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of the data subject shall always be in accordance with the national data protection regulations applicable to The LGBT life e.V.. With this data protection declaration, our association wishes to inform the public of the type, scope and purpose of the personal data that we collect, use and process. In addition, data subjects are informed of their rights through this data protection declaration.

The LGBT life e.V. as controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website.

This information is collected by the LinkedIn component and assigned by LinkedIn to the data subject's respective LinkedIn account. If the data subject activates the LinkedIn button integrated on our website, LinkedIn assigns this information to the data subject's personal LinkedIn user account and stores this personal data.

LinkedIn always receives information via the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject has logged into LinkedIn at the same time as calling our website; this happens whether or not the data subject clicks on the LinkedIn component. If the data subject does not want this information transmitted to LinkedIn, he or she can prevent its transmission by logging out of his or her LinkedIn account before visiting our site.

LinkedIn offers the ability to unsubscribe from emails, text messages and targeted ads, and to manage your advertising preferences on https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls.

22 Data protection provisions for the use and application of Matomo

Controller has integrated the Matomo component of this site. Matomo is an open-source software tool for web analytics. Web analytics is the collection, aggregation, and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to Web sites. Among other things, the web analytics tool collects data on which site the data subject came to the site from (so-called referrer), which subpages of the site were visited or how often and how long a particular subpage was viewed. Web analytics is mainly used to optimize a website and analyze the costs and benefits of Internet advertising.

The software runs on a data controller server, and the log files, which are confidential under data protection law, are stored exclusively on that server.

The purpose of the Matomo component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our site. The controller uses the resulting data and information, among other things, to evaluate the use of this site in order to generate online reports reflecting activity on our site.

Matomo sets a cookie on the data subject's information technology system. What cookies are, has already been explained above. Setting a cookie allows us to analyze the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, the Internet browser of the data subject's information technology system is automatically forced by the Matomo component to transmit data to our server for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical procedure, we receive information on personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which we use in particular to track the origin of visitors and clicks.

A cookie stores personal information, such as access time, the location from which access was made, and the frequency of visits to our site. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by that person, is transmitted to our server. This personal data is stored by us. We do not share this personal data with third parties.

The data subject may at any time prevent the installation of cookies on our website, as described above, by means of the appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thereby permanently refuse the installation of cookies. This setting of the Internet browser used will also prevent Matomo from setting a cookie on the data subject's information technology system. In addition, a cookie already set by Matomo can be deleted at any time using an Internet browser or other programs.

In addition, the data subject has the opportunity to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Matomo and related to the use of this site. To do so, the data subject must set the "Do Not Track" function in his or her browser.

25. Payment method: data protection rules for PayPal as a payment method

The controller has integrated the PayPal components on this site. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are made through so-called PayPal accounts, which are virtual private or business accounts. In addition, PayPal offers the ability to process virtual credit card payments if the user does not have a PayPal account. The PayPal account is managed through an email address, so there is no classic account number. PayPal allows you to initiate online payments to third parties or receive payments. PayPal also takes on the role of trustee and offers buyer protection services.

PayPal's European operating company is PayPal (Europe) S.à.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal L-2449, Luxembourg.

If the data subject chooses "PayPal" as a payment option during the ordering process in our online store, the data subject's data are automatically transferred to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, the data subject consents to the transfer of personal data required to process the payment.

The personal data transmitted to PayPal are usually the name, last name, address, e-mail address, IP address, phone number, mobile number or other data necessary for the processing of the payment. The personal data required for the processing of the purchase contract is also personal data relating to the respective order.

The purpose of the data transfer is payment processing and fraud prevention. The controller will transfer personal data to PayPal in particular if there is a legitimate interest for the transfer. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and the controller may be transferred by PayPal to credit reference agencies. The purpose of such a transfer is to verify identity and creditworthiness.

PayPal may transfer personal data to affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors to the extent necessary to fulfill contractual obligations or to process data on their behalf.

The data subject has the option to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data in relation to PayPal at any time. The withdrawal does not affect personal data which is necessarily processed, used or transferred for (contractual) payment processing.

The applicable PayPal data protection provisions can be found at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.

26 Legal basis for processing

Article 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent to the specific purpose of the processing. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to implement pre-contractual measures, such as in the case of inquiries about our products or services. If a legal obligation is imposed on our company, by virtue of which the processing of personal data becomes necessary, e.g. to comply with tax obligations, the processing shall take place on the basis of Article 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This can occur, for example, if a visitor is injured on our premises, as a result of which his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information needs to be transmitted to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Article 6 I lit. d of the DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations can be based on Art. 6 I lit. f of the DS-GVO. Processing operations that do not fall under any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are allowed to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this regard, he suggested that a legitimate interest can be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (paragraph 47, sentence 2 GDPR).

Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f of the DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our activities for the benefit of all our employees and our members.

27. legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party. 

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our members.

28. The length of time for which personal data is stored

The criterion for how long personal data is stored is the relevant statutory retention period. After this period has expired, the relevant data will be deleted in the usual manner if it is no longer required for the performance or initiation of the contract.

29. legal or contractual requirements for the provision of personal data; necessity for a contract; obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide personal data.

 

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (e.g. tax law) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information about a contractual partner). Sometimes a data subject may be required to provide us with personal data, which must then be processed by us, in order to enter into a contract. For example, the data subject must provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with him or her. Failure to provide personal data means that no contract can be concluded with the data subject. Before a data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will explain to the data subject in each case whether the submission of personal data is required by law or by contract or is necessary to enter into a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide personal data and what the consequences of not providing personal data are.

30. The existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automated decision-making or profiling.

This data protection declaration was created by the data protection declaration generator DGD Deutsche Gesellschaft für Datenschutz GmbH, which acts as Passau's external data protection commissioner, in cooperation with data protection law attorney Christian Solmecke.
