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:

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.

You can chan­ge your data pro­tec­tion set­tings with Twit­ter in your Twit­ter account: https://twitter.com/login?redirect_after_login=%2Faccount%2Fsettings

 

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.
