§ 1 Introduction
Animals' Angels e. V.
are the operators (hereinafter “we” or the “operators”) of the website www.animals-angels.de (hereinafter the “website”) and the services offered on it and thus constitute the controller for the collection, processing and use of personal data within the meaning of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).
Even in collecting data, the principle of data economy is very important for us. We collect and process personal data only to the extent that you have granted your consent for us to do so, or the law explicitly permits or requires us to do so, or you permit us to do so. In the following, we explain what data we collect, how we use it and what rights you have with regard to our use of your data.
§ 2 Collection and storage of personal data
1. Personal data
The term “personal data” is defined in the Federal Data Protection Act. Under this law, such data consists of individual elements of information regarding the personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This thus includes your real name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth. Furthermore, it also includes company-related data.
a) When you visit our website
Unless otherwise described in the following sections, we generally do not collect, process or use any personal data when you use our websites.
When you visit our website, our servers temporarily store each access in a log file. In parallel, the following data is collected without your taking action and is stored on a server in Germany by a data center commissioned by us, until it is automatically deleted after 30 days at the latest:
- IP address assigned to your computer,
- Name and URL of the requested file,
- Referrer URL (the website visited beforehand),
- Date and time of the request,
- Browser version and browser type you use,
- Operating system you use,
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Size of the file transferred
If you contact us by email or our contact form, we store your email address and the other information. We do this solely for the purpose of responding to you or, if necessary, to be able to contact you again later on regarding the subject matter of your request.
We store and process your personal data on rented servers in Germany. We, and also the data centers we commission, protect your data by means of technical and organizational security measures to minimize risks in connection with the loss, misuse, unauthorized access and unauthorized disclosure and modification of such data. For this purpose, we use firewalls and data encryption, for example, but also physical access restrictions and authorization controls for data access. We take measures to ensure that the personal data we collect is correct and up to date.
§ 3 Use of personal data
Your personal data is collected and processed for the purpose of implementing the mutual contractual relationship, in particular to enable us:
- To know who has entered into the contract with us,
- To check the data entered for plausibility and legal capacity,
- To create contractual relationships with you regarding the use of the website and the services offered on it, to structure them in terms of content, to implement them and, if necessary, make changes to them,
- To contact you if we have questions,
- To inform you of future offers if you have granted your express consent.
Before the data specified above is evaluated, it is first pseudonymized. This allows us to evaluate user behavior, without a specific personal reference, in order to improve our website and services. You can object to the use of your personal data for advertising purposes at any time, altogether or for individual measures. It will suffice if you send us an informal communication in text form (such as email, fax, letter), using the contact data below.
§ 4 Disclosure of data
1. Transfer of personal data to third parties
Your personal data is only passed on or otherwise transferred to third parties if such is necessary for the purpose of contract implementation or if you have granted your consent beforehand.
Furthermore, without your consent, we will not sell your data or otherwise pass it on to third parties. Anything to the contrary shall only apply insofar as there is a corresponding legal obligation (such as an obligation to inform particular authorities as part of their legal tasks) or insofar as such is necessary in order to enforce our rights, in particular to assert claims arising from the contractual relationship with you.
2. Integration of third-party services and content
It is possible that third-party content (such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites) is integrated in our website. This always requires the providers of such content (“third-party providers”) to be able to detect the IP addresses of the users. Without the IP address, they could not send the content to the respective user’s browser. We use our best efforts only to use content where the respective provider uses the IP address only for delivering the content. However, we have no influence on the matter if the third-party provider stores the IP address, for example for statistical purposes. To the extent that we are aware that such is the case, we inform our users accordingly.
§ 5 Information, correction and deletion of data
You have the right to obtain information about the personal data stored about you; you also have the right to have incorrect data corrected and to have your data blocked or deleted.
To obtain information about your personal data, to have incorrect data corrected, to have data blocked or deleted, or if you have any other questions about the use of your personal data, please contact:
