Data pro­tec­tion

The oper­a­tors of these sites take the pro­tec­tion of your per­son­al data very seri­ous­ly. We treat your per­son­al data con­fi­den­tial­ly and accord­ing to data pro­tec­tion leg­is­la­tion and this pri­va­cy policy.

The use of our Web site is pos­si­ble with­out indi­ca­tion of per­son­al data. As far as per­son­al data (for exam­ple name, address or E‑Mail address­es) are col­lect­ed on our pages, this is, as far as pos­si­ble, on a vol­un­tary basis. These data are not passed to third par­ties with­out your explic­it consent.

We would like to point out that data trans­mis­sion over the Inter­net (e.g. when com­mu­ni­cat­ing via e‑mail) may have secu­ri­ty gaps. A com­plete pro­tec­tion of data against access by third par­ties is not possible.


This web­site uses the dona­tion form of twingle GmbH, Prinzenallee 74, 13357 Berlin. twingle GmbH pro­vides the tech­ni­cal plat­form for the dona­tion process for this dona­tion form. The data you entered dur­ing the dona­tion (e.g. address, bank details, etc.) will only be stored by twingle on servers in Ger­many for the pur­pose of pro­cess­ing the dona­tion. We have con­clud­ed a con­tract with twingle for order data pro­cess­ing and ful­ly imple­ment the strict require­ments of the EU Gen­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion and the Ger­man Data Pro­tec­tion Author­i­ties when using twingle’s dona­tion form. The trans­mis­sion of your data is based on Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR (con­sent) and Art. b GDPR (pro­cess­ing for the per­for­mance of a con­tract). You have the option to revoke your con­sent to data pro­cess­ing at any time. A revo­ca­tion does not affect the effec­tive­ness of data pro­cess­ing oper­a­tions in the past.

Use of Matomo

The dona­tion form of twingle uses the web analy­sis ser­vice soft­ware Mato­mo (, a ser­vice of the provider InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Welling­ton, New Zealand, (“Mato­mo”) based on twingle’s legit­i­mate inter­est in the sta­tis­ti­cal analy­sis of user behav­iour for opti­miza­tion pur­pos­es in accor­dance with Art. f GDPR data col­lect­ed and stored. From this data, pseu­do­nymised user pro­files can be cre­at­ed and eval­u­at­ed for the same pur­pose. Cook­ies can be used for this pur­pose. Cook­ies are small text files that are stored local­ly in the cache of the web­site visitor’s inter­net brows­er. Among oth­er things, the cook­ies enable the recog­ni­tion of the Inter­net brows­er. The data col­lect­ed with Mato­mo tech­nol­o­gy (includ­ing your pseu­do­nymized IP address) is processed on twingle servers. The infor­ma­tion gen­er­at­ed by the cook­ie in the pseu­do­ny­mous user pro­file is not used to per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fy the vis­i­tor to this web­site and is not merged with per­son­al data about the bear­er of the pseudonym.

If you do not agree with the stor­age and eval­u­a­tion of this data from your vis­it, then you can object to the stor­age and use at any time with just a click. In this case, an opt-out cook­ie is stored in your brows­er, which means that Mato­mo does not col­lect any ses­sion data. Please note that the com­plete dele­tion of your cook­ies means that the opt-out cook­ie will also be delet­ed and may have to be reac­ti­vat­ed by you. 

Col­lec­tion, pro­cess­ing and use of per­son­al data in the event of donations

In the case of a dona­tion, we only col­lect and use your per­son­al data inso­far as this is nec­es­sary for the ful­fill­ment and pro­cess­ing of your dona­tion and, if nec­es­sary, for the pro­cess­ing of your enquiries. The pro­vi­sion of the data is nec­es­sary for the pro­cess­ing of the dona­tion process. Non-pro­vi­sion­ing means that your dona­tion can­not be received. Pro­cess­ing is car­ried out on the basis of Arti­cle 6 (1) lit. b GDPR and is required for the pro­cess­ing of the dona­tion. Your data will not be passed on to third par­ties with­out your explic­it con­sent. Exclud­ed from this are only our ser­vice part­ners, which we need to process the dona­tion or ser­vice providers used in the con­text of order pro­cess­ing. In addi­tion to the recip­i­ents named in the respec­tive claus­es of this Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy, these are, for exam­ple, recip­i­ents of the fol­low­ing cat­e­gories: pay­ment ser­vice providers, ser­vice providers for send­ing the dona­tion cer­tifi­cate. In all cas­es, we strict­ly observe the legal require­ments. The scope of the data trans­mis­sion is lim­it­ed to a min­i­mum. You have the option to revoke your con­sent to data pro­cess­ing at any time. A revo­ca­tion does not affect the effec­tive­ness of data pro­cess­ing oper­a­tions in the past.
