Privacy Policy 

We are happy to wel­come you to our web­site. Be­low we would like to in­form you about our deal­ing with your data. Cur­rent status: 25.05.2018 (We re­serve the right, in com­pli­ance with the cur­rent legal po­s­i­tion, to make changes in fu­ture.)

 

The hand­ling of all the data will take place within the scope of the cur­rent legal EU data pro­tec­tion rules. You are hereby in­formed in ac­cord­ance with para­graph 33, sec­tion 1 of the Bundes­datens­chutzge­setz (Fed­eral Data Pro­tec­tion Act) that your per­sonal data is stored in ma­chine-read­able form. Dis­clos­ure to third parties does not oc­cur.

 

Must a Data Pro­tec­tion Del­eg­ate be ap­poin­ted?

A Data Pro­tec­tion Del­eg­ate (DPD) is not re­quired since there are fewer than 10 per­sons reg­u­larly work­ing with per­sonal data.

 

Name and ad­dress of the per­son re­spons­ible:

General information for data processing

Legal basis: EU – General Data Protection Regulation GDPR

 

1. Mak­ing con­tact – hand­ling con­tact data

If you con­tact us as op­er­ator of the in­ter­net site via the offered op­por­tun­it­ies for con­tact (e.g. by e‑mail, tele­phone or via so­cial me­dia), you provide us with your con­sent to store your per­sonal data so that we may ac­cess these for the pro­cessing and an­swer­ing of your re­quest. Without your con­sent we will not dis­close your per­sonal data to any third parties. The per­sonal data will be pro­cessed and stored in our head of­fice in Switzer­land (ad­dress see above). We will de­lete your per­sonal data if it is no longer ne­ces­sary.

 

We ex­pli­citly point out that data trans­mis­sion in the In­ter­net (e.g. by e‑mail) can have se­cur­ity gaps. A com­plete pro­tec­tion of data from third party ac­cess is not pos­sible. The use by third parties of the con­tact data pub­lished within the scope of our stat­utory legal no­tice ob­lig­a­tions for send­ing un­so­li­cited ad­vert­ising and in­form­a­tion ma­ter­i­als is hereby ex­pressly for­bid­den. Ex­cep­ted from this are ex­ist­ing re­la­tion­ships or when our cor­res­pond­ing con­sent is provided. The op­er­at­ors and any third parties men­tioned on this web­site ex­pressly re­serve the right to take legal ac­tion in the event of the un­so­li­cited send­ing of ad­vert­ising or in­form­a­tion ma­ter­i­als. The same ap­plies to the com­mer­cial use or dis­tri­bu­tion of data.

 

2. Scope of per­sonal data pro­cessing

We pro­cess per­sonal data of our users in prin­ciple only in so far as this is re­quired for the pro­vi­sion of a func­tional web­site as well as for our con­tent and ser­vices.

 

3. Data de­le­tion and stor­age dur­a­tion

The per­sonal data of the per­son con­cerned will be de­leted im­me­di­ately, as soon as the pur­pose of stor­age ceases to ap­ply or the per­son re­quests this in writ­ing. Data, bound by legal reg­u­la­tions to a stor­age dur­a­tion, e.g. bank­ing in­form­a­tion of donors on our dona­tion ac­counts will not be de­leted un­til the legal stor­age period has ex­pired.

 

4. With­drawal op­tion

The user will at any time have the op­por­tun­ity to re­voke his con­sent to the stor­ing and pro­cessing of per­sonal data. In such a case the con­ver­sa­tion can­not be con­tin­ued. A with­drawal of your con­sent to the stor­ing and pro­cessing of your per­sonal data can be sent to us at any time by e‑mail or post:

 

Neu­christen

Bergstrasse 52

CH-9038 Re­het­o­bel

E‑mail: nch@neuchristen.com

 

All per­sonal data stored in the course of con­tact­ing us will be de­leted in this case (un­less there is a legal stor­age period, see item 3).

Your rights as person concerned

 

As user of our web­sites, the GDPR grants you cer­tain rights when pro­cessing your per­sonal data:

 

1. Right of ac­cess

You have the right to de­mand a con­firm­a­tion whether the per­sonal data con­cern­ing you is pro­cessed. If this is the case, you are en­titled to ob­tain in­form­a­tion re­gard­ing these per­sonal data. For data pro­tec­tion reas­ons, this in­form­a­tion will only be given upon writ­ten re­quest (with ori­ginal hand­writ­ten sig­na­ture) and will like­wise only be sent in the form of a let­ter.

 

2. Right of cor­rec­tion, re­stric­tion and de­le­tion

You have the right to de­mand the im­me­di­ate cor­rec­tion of in­ac­cur­ate per­sonal data con­cern­ing you, the re­stric­tion of the same or, if ap­plic­able, to have in­com­plete per­sonal data com­pleted.

You also have the right to de­mand a de­le­tion of the per­sonal data con­cern­ing you without un­due delay, provided we are not bound by legal ob­lig­a­tions to store the data.

 

3. Right to lodge a com­plaint with a su­per­vis­ory au­thor­ity

You have the right to lodge a com­plaint with a su­per­vis­ory au­thor­ity if you con­sider that the pro­cessing of the data con­cern­ing you in­fringes data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions.

Provision of the website and creation of log files

 

1. De­scrip­tion and scope of data pro­cessing

Each time our web­site is vis­ited, our sys­tem auto­mat­ic­ally re­cords data and in­form­a­tion from the com­puter sys­tem of the ac­cess­ing com­puter.

The fol­low­ing data is gathered here:

 

In­form­a­tion on the browser type and the ver­sion used

The user’s op­er­at­ing sys­tem

  • The user’s in­ter­net ser­vice pro­vider
  • The user’s IP ad­dress
  • Date and time of ac­cess
  • Web­sites from which the user’s sys­tem reaches our web­site
  • Web­sites that are ac­cessed by the user’s sys­tem via our web­site

The data will also be stored in the log files of our sys­tem. This data will not be stored to­gether with other per­sonal data of the user.

 

2. Pur­pose of data pro­cessing

Tem­por­ary stor­age of the IP ad­dress by the sys­tem is ne­ces­sary to en­able pro­vi­sion of the web­site for the user’s com­puter. For this pur­pose the user’s IP ad­dress must be stored for the dur­a­tion of the ses­sion.

Stor­age in log files is car­ried out to en­sure the func­tion­al­ity of the web­site. Fur­ther­more, the data al­lows us to op­tim­ise the web­site and to guar­an­tee the se­cur­ity of our In­form­a­tion Tech­no­logy sys­tems. Data ana­lysis for mar­ket­ing pur­poses does not take place in this con­text.

 

3. Dur­a­tion of stor­age

The data is de­leted as soon as it is no longer re­quired to achieve the pur­pose for which it was ob­tained. In the case of data col­lec­tion for the pro­vi­sion of the web­site, this ap­plies at the end of the re­spect­ive ses­sion.

When data is stored in log files, this is the case after three days at the latest. Stor­age bey­ond this is pos­sible. In this case, the users’ IP ad­dresses are de­leted or scrambled so that as­sign­ment of the ac­cess­ing cli­ent is no longer pos­sible.

 

4. Op­tion for ob­jec­tion and elim­in­a­tion

Re­cord­ing of data for pro­vi­sion of the web­site and the stor­age of data in log files is ab­so­lutely ne­ces­sary for op­er­a­tion of the web­site. There­fore, the user has no right of ob­jec­tion.

Use of Cookies

 

1. De­scrip­tion and scope of data pro­cessing

Our web­site uses cook­ies. Cook­ies are text files which are stored in the user’s In­ter­net browser or on the user’s com­puter sys­tem by the In­ter­net browser. If a user ac­cesses a web­site, a cookie may be stored on the user’s op­er­at­ing sys­tem. This cookie con­tains a char­ac­ter­istic char­ac­ter string which en­ables unique iden­ti­fic­a­tion of the browser the next time the web­site is called up.

 

We use cook­ies to make our web­site more user-friendly. Some ele­ments of our web­site re­quire the ac­cess­ing browser to also be iden­ti­fi­able after a page change. Some cook­ies used by us are de­leted again at the end of your browser ses­sion after your browser has been closed (so-called ses­sion cook­ies). Other cook­ies re­main on your PC and en­able us to identify your browser at your next visit (per­sist­ent cook­ies).

 

At the same time, the fol­low­ing data is stored and trans­ferred in the cook­ies:

  • Date and time of ac­cess
  • A unique num­ber /​ let­ter com­bin­a­tion for the re­cog­ni­tion of your browser
  • A cookie name that can ex­pli­citly be as­signed to the ac­cessed In­ter­net site
  • In­form­a­tion on the stor­age dur­a­tion of cook­ies

Cook­ies are stored in en­cryp­ted form and can­not be read by third parties who can ac­cess the cookie folder of your browser. Only the server/​the web­site who cre­ated the cookie can de­crypt and read it.

 

2. Pur­pose of data pro­cessing

The pur­pose of us­ing tech­nic­ally ne­ces­sary cook­ies is to sim­plify the use of web­sites for the users. Please note that some func­tions of our web­site can­not be offered without the use of cook­ies. These func­tions re­quire that the browser can be re­cog­nised even after a page change.

 

3. Dur­a­tion of stor­age, op­tion for ob­jec­tion and elim­in­a­tion

Cook­ies are stored on the user’s com­puter and trans­ferred from there to our web­site. There­fore, as a user you also have full con­trol over the use of cook­ies. You can de­ac­tiv­ate or re­strict the trans­mis­sion of cook­ies by chan­ging the set­tings in your In­ter­net browser. Cook­ies that have already been saved can be de­leted at any time. This can also be done auto­mat­ic­ally. If cook­ies are de­ac­tiv­ated for our web­site, it may no longer be pos­sible to use all the func­tions of the In­ter­net site to their full ex­tent.

Web analysis by Matomo (formerly PIWIK)

 

1. Scope of the pro­cessing of per­sonal data

We use the Open-Source-Soft­ware-Tool Mat­omo (pre­vi­ously known as PIWIK) on our web­site to ana­lyse the surf­ing be­ha­viour of our users. The soft­ware places a cookie on the user’s com­puter (see above for cook­ies). If in­di­vidual pages of our web­site are ac­cessed, the fol­low­ing data is stored:

 

Two bytes of the IP ad­dress of the user’s ac­cess­ing sys­tem

  • The ac­cessed web­site
  • The web­site from which the user has reached the ac­cessed web­site (re­fer­rer)
  • The sub-pages ac­cessed from the ac­cessed web­site
  • The time spent on the web­site
  • The fre­quency with which the web­site is ac­cessed

In the pro­cess, the soft­ware runs ex­clus­ively on the serv­ers of our web­site. The per­sonal data of users is stored only there and will not be for­war­ded to third parties.

The soft­ware is set so that the IP ad­dresses are not com­pletely stored, but 2 bytes of the IP ad­dress are masked (e.g.: 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, it is no longer pos­sible to as­sign the shortened IP ad­dress to the ac­cess­ing com­puter.

2. Pur­pose of data pro­cessing

The pro­cessing of the per­sonal user data en­ables us to ana­lyse the surf­ing be­ha­viour of our users. Eval­u­at­ing the res­ult­ing data en­ables us to com­pile in­form­a­tion on the use of the in­di­vidual com­pon­ents of our web­site. This helps us to con­stantly im­prove our web­site and its user-friend­li­ness. These pur­poses also con­sti­tute our le­git­im­ate in­terest in the pro­cessing of the data. The in­terests of the users with re­gard to the pro­tec­tion of their per­sonal data are suf­fi­ciently taken into ac­count through the an­onymisa­tion of the IP ad­dress.

 

3. Dur­a­tion of stor­age

The data will be de­leted once it is no longer re­quired for the pur­pose for which it was stored.

 

4. Op­tion for ob­jec­tion and elim­in­a­tion

Cook­ies are stored on the user’s com­puter and trans­ferred from there to our web­site. There­fore, as a user you also have full con­trol over the use of cook­ies. You can de­ac­tiv­ate or re­strict the trans­mis­sion of cook­ies by chan­ging the set­tings in your In­ter­net browser. Cook­ies that have already been saved can be de­leted at any time. This can also be done auto­mat­ic­ally. If cook­ies are de­ac­tiv­ated for our web­site, it may no longer be pos­sible to use all the func­tions of the In­ter­net site to their full ex­tent.

Data transfers by third-party providers in third countries

 

In some cases, per­sonal data is trans­ferred by the fol­low­ing third-party pro­viders to third coun­tries out­side the EU. In the event of Google LLC (USA), an ap­pro­pri­ate level of data pro­tec­tion res­ults from the cor­res­pond­ing par­ti­cip­a­tion of Google LLC in the Pri­vacy Shield agree­ment. In the fol­low­ing sec­tions, with the third-party pro­viders in ques­tion it is ex­pli­citly poin­ted out, should the pos­sib­il­ity ex­ist, that col­lec­ted per­sonal data is trans­ferred to third coun­tries out­side the EU by the pro­vider.

 

Data pro­tec­tion (com­ment func­tion)

Within the scope of the com­ment func­tion of our blog, we col­lect per­sonal data (e.g. name, e‑mail) within the scope of your com­ment on a con­tri­bu­tion only to the ex­tent that you have com­mu­nic­ated to us. When a com­ment is pub­lished, the e‑mail ad­dress you provided will be stored but not pub­lished. Your spe­cified name will be pub­lished. You can also use a pseud­onym.

 

1. You­Tube

We in­teg­rate videos of the plat­form “You­Tube” of the pro­vider Google LLC, 1600 Am­phi­theatre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA, into this web­site. The pri­vacy policy of Google LLC can be viewed here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy as well as the pos­sib­il­ity for opt-out here: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

 

2. Pri­vacy policy for the use of Twit­ter

On this site, plug-ins are in­teg­rated of the mes­sen­ger ser­vice Twit­ter (Twit­ter Inc., 1355 Mar­ket Street, Suite 900, San Fran­cisco, CA 94103, USA). By us­ing the plug-ins, the web­sites vis­ited by you are linked to your Twit­ter ac­count and made known to other users. Thereby, data will also be trans­ferred to Twit­ter. We ex­pli­citly point out that we as pro­vider of these In­ter­net sites have no know­ledge of the con­tent of the data trans­ferred and their use by Twit­ter. You can find ad­di­tional in­form­a­tion about data pro­tec­tion by Twit­ter at: https://twitter.com/privacy.

3. Data pri­vacy state­ment for the use of Face­book plug-ins (Like-But­ton, etc.)

In­teg­rated on this web­site are the plug-ins of the so­cial me­dia pro­vider Facebook.com (for Europe: Face­book Ir­land Lim­ited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dub­lin 2, Ire­land; for the USA: Face­book Inc., 1601 Wil­low Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA). You will find an over­view of the Face­book plug-ins at: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

Your vis­its to sites con­tain­ing Face­book plug-ins es­tab­lish a con­nec­tion between your browser and a Face­book server en­abling Face­book to ob­tain in­form­a­tion re­lat­ing to your IP ad­dress as well as your visit to our web­site.

By click­ing on the Face­book plug-ins you will be dir­ec­ted to the Face­book lo­gin area. Already logged-in Face­book users are able to im­me­di­ately pub­lish con­tent of our web­site on their own Face­book pro­files. As a res­ult of us­ing these plug-ins, Face­book can al­loc­ate your visit to our web­site to your per­sonal user ac­count. We ex­pli­citly point out that we as pro­vider of these In­ter­net sites ob­tain no know­ledge of the con­tent of the data trans­ferred nor their use by Face­book. You can find fur­ther in­form­a­tion about data pro­tec­tion by Face­book at: https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.

In or­der to avoid a con­nec­tion by Face­book between your visit to our web­site and your user ac­count, you will need to log off your Face­book ac­count.
