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.

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.

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.
