We assure you....

... that your data will be treated in accordance with applicable data protection regulations and that we will take all necessary technical and organizational measures to ensure data protection. We will collect, process and store your personal data exclusively for the processing of inquiries and, if necessary, for the processing of orders / contracts as well as for the administration of donations. Only if you have previously given your explicit consent, will your data also be used for more extensive purposes that have been specifically agreed upon in the permission.


As far as personal data (such as name, address or e-mail addresses)  is concerned, we are only saving, as much as possible, at your request/consent. These data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent. We want to point out, however, that data transmission over the Internet (for example, when communicating by e-mail) may contain security gaps. A complete security protection against access by third parties in the transmission of data via internet is therefore not possible.

The data protection safety regulations provide various rights for users. Here we provide the information for you:

Exceptions to this exist, where compelling legal regulations oppose to it (for example, retention requirements in (donation) accounting). Please use the following e-mail address to send us your objection:

  • Affected Right: You have the right to have your personal data corrected, blocked or deleted.
  • Right to complain: Anyone who assumes that they have been violated in the collection, processing or use of their personal data has the right to contact the relevant data protection supervisory authority. This authority will investigate the complaint and informs the person concerned about the result.

These data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent.

Please note that data transmission through the Internet (for example, when communicating via e-mail) may have security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.

Extent of processing personal data

As Provide, we only process personal data of our users to the extent that this is necessary to provide a functioning website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users only takes place after an explicit consent of the user. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for reasons of fact and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

For the processing of personal data with consent of the user, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a (DSGVO) serves as a legal basis. For the fulfillment of a contract Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO serves as the basis. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions. Should we be subject to fulfill a legal obligation, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO will be the legal basis. If vital interests of the data subject or another actual person require the processing of personal data, this is done in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. D DSGVO. In the case of processing for the protection of a legitimate interest of our non-profit association, where the interests of the data subject deserving protection do not exceed the interests of the person responsible, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO will be serving as the legal basis.

Deleting data and storage duration

The personal data of the individual will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage is omitted. In addition, such storage may be provided if it was intended by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject to. Blocking or deleting data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned, expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for conclusion or fulfillment of the contract.
