Data privacy

The protection and security of your data have utmost priority in the creation of this website. Read on to learn more about what this means in practice.

Data protection for online appeals

When you participate in online appeals, your data is processed by the provider of our petition tools in encrypted form (SSL). The provider is not authorized to use this data for their own purposes. This data may be passed on only to us and to our e-mail provider (e.g. for sending activation e-mails and, if necessary, for registration to receive our newsletter). Your data is deleted at the latest three months after the closure of the appeal if you have not subscribed to at least one of our newsletters.

Data protection for online donations

If you donate to or sponsor us via our website, your data is transferred via a secure connection (SSL) to our service provider charged with handling donations and creating donation receipts. The service provider stores the data in accordance with the most stringent security standards on servers in Germany and is not authorized to use or pass on this data for their own purposes.

Data protection for subscribing/unsubscribing to newsletters

On nearly every page on this website, you have the opportunity to sign up for our weekly newsletter. Your e-mail address (and any other data) is SSL-encrypted. Our e-mail provider stores this data on servers based in Europe.

No spam

We send our newsletters only to people who have signed up to receive them. Every newsletter also contains an “unsubscribe” link.

Secure buttons for social networks

Because the buttons provided by Facebook, Twitter and Google+ send data to the relevant services even if you don’t click on them, we use specially developed “share buttons” that do not do this.

No trackers

We do not store any data concerning your personal surfing habits. The only information we save is when you close our newsletter opt-in message, which means that you will not see this message for the next three months. We use Google Analytics as a tool for obtaining information about, for example, how many people visit our website and how long they stay. Your IP address is anonymized here. For more details, please read our legal notice.

No selling of data

We pledge not to sell your details.
