Privacy Policy

We thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our association. The protection of your personal data and privacy is of particular concern to our association “Vision Yamalé e. V. Aufbau- und Rückkehrprojekte in Afrika”. Generally, you can use our website without giving any personal data. However, if you want to make use of special services on our website, processing of personal data might become necessary. If this becomes the case and there is no legal basis for this processing, we will obtain consent from the data subjects

We process personal data (e. g. name, postal address, email, telephone number) gathered during your visit on our website in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR and the country-specific Data Protection Regulations. Our Privacy Policy will give you an overview of what happens to your personal information when you visit our website. Furthermore, you will learn about your vested rights.

We as party responsible for data processing have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure at most the uninterrupted protection of processed personal data on this website. Still, web-based data transfers might display security gaps, therefore, a complete protection cannot be guaranteed. For that reason, you are free to use alternatives for the transmission of personal details, e. g. telephone.

1. Definitions

Our Privacy Policy rests upon the terminology used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our Privacy Policy aims to be easily readable and understandable for the general public as well as our members and associates. In order to ensure this, we will define the terminology used in our Privacy Policy in advance.

In our Privacy Policy, we use the following terms:

  • a) Personal data

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

  • b) Data subject

Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data are being processed by the controller.

  • c) Processing

Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

  • d) Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.

  • e) Profiling

Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

  • f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

  • g) Controller

Controller means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

  • h) Processor

Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

  • i) Recipient

Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing;

  • j) Third party

Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data;

  • k) Consent

Consent of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

3. Cookies

Our website uses cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

A great number of web pages and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is an unambiguous label for a cookie. It consists of a character string through which web pages and servers can be allocated to the concrete web browser in which the cookie was saved. This enables the visited web pages and servers to distinguish the browser of the data subject from other browsers that contain cookies. A specific browser can be recognised and identified through the unambiguous cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, we can provide user-friendly services, which would not be possible without the configuration of cookies.

By using cookies, we can optimise the information and offers on our website in favour of the users. As mentioned above, cookies enable the recognition of our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to simplify the use of our website. For example, the users of a website with cookies do not have to enter their access data anew, because the website and the cookie stored on the users’ computer system remember them. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket at an online shop. Thanks to the cookie, the online shop remembers the article that the customer has placed in the virtual shopping basket.

You can configure your browser to inform you when a cookie is about to be set, so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject this cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies only under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when your browser is closed. However, disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

4. Collection of general data and information

Every time our website is opened by the data subject or an automated system, it collects general data and information. These general data and information are stored in the server logfiles. Our website collects (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing systems gets to our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-sites, which access our website via an accessing system, (5) date and time of access, (6) IP address, (7) ISP of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that avert attacks on our information technology system.

We draw no conclusions about the data subject based on the use of the general data and information. We rather need this information to (1) display our website contents correctly, (2) optimise our contents, (3) ensure the permanent functioning of our information technology system and (4) provide prosecuting authorities with information in case of a cyber-attack. Our association evaluates these anonymously collected data and information with the objective to increase data protection and security. The anonymous data from the server logfiles are stored separately from all personal data entered by data subjects.

5. Contact request / contact option

If you contact us via contact form or email, your provided data will be used to process your request. Your data are necessary for processing and answering your request – without the provision we are unable to answer your request in its entirety.

Article(6) I lit. b GDPR serves as legal basis for this processing.

We will erase your data if your request has been answered and there is no duty to preserve records as it may be the case for a subsequent processing of contracts.

6. Subscription to our Newsletter

You can subscribe to our newsletter on our website. The personal data transmitted to the controller are those entered into our newsletter input mask.

Through our newsletter, we inform you regularly about our activities. You can only receive our newsletter if (1) you have a valid email address and (2) you have registered for the newsletter. You will receive a confirmation email that allows us to verify that you are the rightful owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive the newsletter.

We also store the IP address assigned by the ISP of the computer system used by the data subject as well as date and time of the subscription. This data collection is necessary in order to reconstruct possible malpractice of a data subject’s email address and therefore serves as legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a newsletter subscription are used for the dispatch of our newsletter only. Furthermore, subscribers can be informed via email if this is required for the newsletter operation service or for a registration. These collected personal data must not be transferred to third parties. Data subjects have the right to cancel the subscription at any time. The consent to store personal data in relation to the newsletter can be cancelled at any time. You find a link in every newsletter for the purpose of cancellation. Furthermore, you can unsubscribe from our newsletter directly on our website or through our controller.

7. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

Where the controller has made the personal data public and is obliged pursuant to paragraph 1 to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform controllers which are processing the personal data that the data subject has requested the erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data.

  • e) Right to restriction of processing

The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller restriction of processing where one of the following applies:

The data subject shall have the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1), including profiling based on those provisions. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless the controller demonstrates compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

We will no longer process personal data in case of objection, unless we can prove mandatory legitimate grounds for processing that prevail over the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject; or the processing serves the enforcement, exercise or protection of rights.

Where personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. Where the data subject objects to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data shall no longer be processed for such purposes.

  • h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

The data subject shall have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her. Paragraph 1 shall not apply if the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller; (2) is authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests; or (3) is based on the data subject’s explicit consent.

In the cases referred to in points (a) and (c) of paragraph 2, the data controller shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

If data subjects want to exercise their right to automated individual decision-making, they can contact the controller at any time.

  • i) Right to revoke

The data subject shall have the right to revoke their consent of processing personal data at any time.

If data subjects want to exercise their right to revoke, they can contact the controller at any time.

9. Legal basis of processing

Article(6) I lit. a GDPR serves as legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If processing of personal data is required to fulfil a contract in which the data subject is the contracting party, as it is the case with processing operations necessary for delivering goods or providing other services, the processing rests upon Article(6) I lit. b GDPR. The same holds true for processing operations required for implementing pre-contractual measures in case of inquiries about our services. If our association is subject to legal obligations through which processing of personal data is required as e. g. to fulfil fiscal duties, the processing rests upon Article(6) I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, processing of personal data might be required to protect vital interests of the data subject or other natural persons. This may be the case if a person in our association got hurt and his or her name, age, health insurance data and other vital information would need to be transmitted to a doctor, hospital or other third parties. In this case, processing would rest upon Article(6) I lit. d GDPR.

Processing operations may rest upon Article(6) I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the formerly mentioned legal bases rest upon this legal basis if processing is required to preserve legitimate interests of our association or other third parties, as long as interests, civil rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not prevail.

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

If processing of personal data rest upon Article(6) I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is the performance of our activities to the benefit of all our members.

11. Time period for storage of personal dat

The respective retention period decides the duration of storage of personal data. After expiration, the relevant data are routinely erased, insofar as they are not required for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract.

12. Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data; Necessity for contract conclusion; Obligation of the data subject to provide personal data; Possible consequences of failure of provision

We hereby want to let you know that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e. g. tax regulations) or results from contractual regulations (e. g. data on contracting party).
To conclude a contract, the data subject may be required to provide personal data, which subsequently have to be processed by us. The data subject is required to provide personal data if we conclude a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data will result in failure to conclude the contract.
Before providing personal data, the data subject has to contact our board. Our board clarifies whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contractual regulations, whether there is an obligation to provide personal data, whether personal data are needed for the contract conclusion and which consequences would result out of a failure to provide personal data.
