Thank you for your interest in our website and our foundation.
We take protecting your personal data and safeguarding your privacy very seriously. Your personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail, telephone number, etc.) will only be processed by us in accordance with the German data protection law. Data are personal if they can be clearly assigned to a specific natural person. The legal basis for data protection can be found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz - BDSG-neu) and the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz - TMG). In order to ensure that you are fully informed about the collection and use of your personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail, telephone number, etc.) on our websites, please take note of the following information.
Scope of application
This data privacy statement provides users with information on the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of their data by the responsible provider. The legal framework for data protection is provided by the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz - BDSG-neu), the German General Data Protection Regulation (Datenschutz-Grundverordnung - DSGVO) and the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz - TMG).
Collection of general information
With every visit of this website, information is automatically collected by us or the web hosting service. This information, also referred to as server log files, is of a general nature and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. Among other things, the following information is collected: name of the website, file, date, amount of data, web browser and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your internet provider, the so-called referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our offer) and the IP address. Without this data, it would not be technically possible to deliver and display the contents of the website. In this respect, the collection of this data is absolutely necessary. In addition, we use the anonymous information for statistical purposes. They help us to optimise the offer and the technology. We also reserve the right to subsequently check the log files in the event of suspicion of illegal use of our offer.
Handling of personal data
Definition: Personal data is any information that uniquely identifies a person. It is therefore data that can be traced back to a person. This personal data includes the first name and surname, telephone number and e-mail address. Information on hobbies, memberships and preferences as well as Internet pages that have been accessed are also considered personal data. This data is only collected, used and, if necessary, passed on by the provider if this is expressly permitted by law or if the user consents to the collection, processing, use and passing on of the data.
A donation is always made on a voluntary basis. We can receive your donation in two ways. Either via a direct transfer to our bank account, stating the purpose of the donation, or via the betterplace.org platform. When donating directly to us, the Schweisfurth Foundation receives your name, if applicable your company, e-mail address, postal address, the desired donation goal (project organisation or fundraising campaign), the time at which the donation was made, the amount and the method of payment. The Schweisfurth Foundation only uses your name and e-mail address for queries, to confirm a donation or if there is personal news for you (see below: Newsletter). The Schweisfurth Foundation only processes and uses your postal address to send you a donation confirmation and a thank you note.
You would like to apply online or in written form to the Schweisfurth Foundation? Our application process is carried out by ourselves in compliance with data protection regulations. Of course, we assure you that we will handle your data, which we receive as part of the application process, in a trustworthy manner. In order to process your application, we require personal data (full name, address, e-mail address and telephone number, qualifications if applicable, professional experience, references, desired position). In the case of employment, we also require additional data that is necessary for the establishing and conducting of an employment relationship. If we are unable to offer you employment, we will retain the data you have provided for up to six months for the purpose of answering questions relating to your application and rejection.
If you register for our newsletter, we use the data you enter exclusively for this purpose or to inform you about circumstances relevant to this service or registration. This data is used by our external service provider networkerz GmbH to send the newsletter. Of course, we have concluded an ADV with this external service provider in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO.
If you register for our newsletter, we use the data you enter exclusively for this purpose or to inform you about circumstances relevant to this service or registration. This data is used by our external service provider networkerz GmbH to send the newsletter. Of course, we have concluded an ADV with this external service provider in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO. A valid e-mail address is required to receive the newsletter. The IP address used to register for the newsletter and the date on which you ordered the newsletter are also stored. This data serves us as proof in the event of misuse if a third-party email address is registered for the newsletter. In order to also ensure that an e-mail address is not improperly entered into our distribution list by third parties, we work in accordance with the law with the so-called "double opt-in" procedure. Within the framework of this procedure, the ordering of the newsletter, the sending of the confirmation e-mail and the receipt of the registration confirmation are logged. You have the option to revoke your consent to the storage of the data, your email address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. We will provide you with a link for revocation in each newsletter. You also have the option of informing us of your wish to revoke via the contact options mentioned in this document.
If you contact us by e-mail, we will store the information you provide in order to answer your enquiry and to be able to ask possible follow-up questions.
Integration of third-party services and content
Our offer sometimes includes content, services and links from other providers. In order for this data to be called up and displayed in the user's browser, the transmission of the IP address is necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") therefore take note of the IP address of the respective user. Even though we endeavour to use only third-party providers who only need the IP address to be able to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be stored. In this case, this process serves statistical purposes, among other things. If we are aware that the IP address is stored, we inform our users of this fact.
This website uses so-called session cookies (also called temporary or transient cookies). Session cookies are only stored for the duration of your use of our website. After the end of each session, the session cookies are deleted. The session cookies are not used for any other purpose. These cookies are necessary for the function of the website and cannot be deactivated in our systems. The use of these session cookies is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Without the use of these cookies, it is not technically possible for you to call up and use the website.
Web analytics application "Matomo"
The use of this website is stored on our server. For this purpose, the Schweisfurth Foundation, as owner of "wir-kooperieren", uses the web analysis service "Matomo" on its websites. "Matomo" is an open source software that serves to optimise websites and anonymously evaluates the access of website visitors via cookies. The analysis serves exclusively to optimise our offer. The IP address is anonymised before storage.
Matomo cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Matomo cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If you do not agree to the storage and anonymous evaluation of the data from your visit, you can object to the storage and use at any time. If you subsequently object to the processing of the data by mouse click, a so-called opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser, with the result that "Matomo" will not collect any session data.
If you delete your cookies in your internet browser, the opt-out cookie will of course also be deleted. When you visit our website again, it must therefore be activated again.
YouTube with privacy enhanced mode
Our website uses the video-sharing platform YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
We use YouTube in the privacy enhanced mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the transfer of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by the privacy enhanced mode. After your consent, YouTube establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network - regardless of whether you watch a video.
If you start watching a video from the YouTube platform on our website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Here the YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited. If you're logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, YouTube can save various cookies on your end device after starting a video. These cookies allow YouTube to obtain information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud attempts. The cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them.
It is possible that further data processing operations may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video over which we have no control.
YouTube is used to help make our website appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of YouTube under: https://www.youtube.com/t/privacy_at_youtube.
Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the consistent display of fonts. The Google Fonts are installed locally. A connection to Google servers does not take place.
In accordance with the principles of data avoidance and data minimisation, we only store personal data for as long as necessary or prescribed by law (statutory storage period). If the purpose of the information collected no longer applies or the storage period ends, we block or delete the data.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection
You have the right to request, free of charge, information about the personal data stored by us and/or to demand correction, blocking or deletion. Exceptions: It is the prescribed data storage for business processing or the data is subject to the legal obligation to retain. For these purposes, please contact our data protection officer (contact details: at the end of the data protection declaration). In order to be able to consider a data block at any time, it is necessary to keep the data in a blocking file for control purposes. If there is no legal archiving obligation, you can also request the deletion of the data. Otherwise, we will block the data if you so wish.
Change of our data privacy statement
In order to ensure that our data privacy statement always complies with the current legal requirements, we reserve the right to make changes at any time. This also applies in the event that the data privacy statement has to be adapted due to new or revised services, for example new services. The new data privacy statement will then apply the next time you visit our website. If you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, for information, correction, blocking or deletion of data as well as revocation of any consent granted, please contact us by e-mail, fax or letter:
