Use of YouTube components with enhanced data protection mode 

On our website we use components (videos) of YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a company belonging to Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.  

When you display a page that has an embedded video, a connection will be made to the YouTube server and the content will appear on the website via a communication to your browser.  

According to the information provided by YouTube, in “- enhanced data protection mode -”, data is only transferred to the YouTube server, in particular which of our websites you have visited, if you watch the video. If you are logged onto YouTube at the same time, this information will be matched to your YouTube member account. You can prevent this from happening by logging out of your member account before visiting our website.

Fundraising box donation form   

On our website we use donation forms of the Fundraisingbox. The technical operator of the corresponding donation forms is Wikando GmbH, Schießgrabenstr. 32, 86150 Augsburg, Germany.

If the donation form is used and personal data such as name and account details are sent, the following data will be used and stored exclusively for the purpose of collecting donations and for further donation requests: first name, last name, email address, and depending on the payment method, account holder, account details. Your data in connection with donations will be stored together with the details of the donation amount, donation frequency and donation purpose/project.    

If you wish to receive further information about our work, your name and e-mail address will be processed with our newsletter tool until you revoke it (for information on the processing of this data, see point …).  

If a donation process is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.
