Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer. They serve to make the Internet offer more user-friendly and effective overall.
a) This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:
- Transient cookies (for this purpose b)
- Persistent cookies (for this purpose c).
b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the common session. This enables your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

4 Newsletter (via the provider MailChimp)
(1) With your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter, with which we inform you about our current activities and events in our association.
(2) The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an email in which you are asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other email addresses. The registrations to the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time, as well as the IP address.
Similarly, the changes to your data stored with MailChimp
(3) The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. [The provision of further, separately marked data is voluntary and will be used to address you personally]. After your confirmation, we store your e-mail address for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.
(4) The newsletter is sent using "MailChimp", a newsletter sending platform of the US provider Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. The email addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in this notice, are stored on MailChimp's servers in the USA. MailChimp uses this information for the dispatch and for the
Evaluation of the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, according to its own information, MailChimp may use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimisation of the dispatch and the presentation of the newsletters or for economic purposes in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself or to pass them on to third parties.
(5) We trust in the reliability and IT and data security of MailChimp. MailChimp is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement "Privacy Shield" and thus undertakes to comply with the EU data protection requirements. Furthermore, we have concluded a "Data Processing Agreement" with MailChimp (available at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/forms/data-processing-agreement/). This is a contract in which MailChimp undertakes to protect the data of our users, to process the data on our behalf in accordance with its data protection provisions, and to provide us with the necessary information.
(6) The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the MailChimp server when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval are initially collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times.
(7) The statistical surveys also include the determination of whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our intention nor that of MailChimp to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
(8) There are cases in which we direct newsletter recipients to the websites of MailChimp. For example, our newsletters contain a link with which the newsletter recipients can call up the newsletter online (e.g. in the event of display problems in the email program). Furthermore, newsletter recipients can change their data, such as the email address, at a later date.
(10) You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. With this, your consents to its dispatch via MailChimp and the statistical analyses expire at the same time. A separate revocation of the dispatch via MailChimp or the statistical analysis is unfortunately not possible. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.
(11) In accordance with the requirements of the provisions in force from 25 May 2018.
Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), we inform you that the consent to the sending of e-mail addresses is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, 7 DSGVO as well as § 7 para. 2 No. 3, or para. 3 UWG. The use of the dispatch service provider MailChimp, the performance of statistical surveys and analyses as well as the logging of the registration process are carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our interest is directed towards the use of a user-friendly and secure newsletter system that serves our business interests as well as the expectations of the users.
(12) We would also like to point out that you have the right to object to the future processing of your data.
personal data in accordance with the legal requirements pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO at any time. The objection can be made in particular against the processing for purposes of direct advertising.
§ 5 Social media
1. use of social media plug-ins
(1) We currently use the following social media plug-ins: [Facebook, Instagram]. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the marking on the box above its initial letter or logo. We open up the possibility for you to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data stored under
§ 3 of this declaration. In the case of Facebook and Instagram, according to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymised immediately after collection. By activating the plug-in, your personal data is transmitted to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects the data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser's security settings before clicking on the greyed-out box.

The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.
(4) The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in to the plug-in provider, your data collected by us will be directly assigned to your account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link to the page, the plug-in provider will also store this information in your user account and share it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as this allows you to avoid an assignment to your profile with the plug-in provider.
(5) Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the data protection declarations of these providers communicated below. There you will also receive further information about your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.
