By entering your personal and business data on the web pages of BTG (Bund Taufgesinnter Gemeinden e.V.) you declare your personal consent to BTG processing and using your data for the purpose of performing and processing your enquiry as well as for the purposes outlined in the following. You have the right to withdraw your consent with effect for the future in writing at any time.
2. General Principles
a) Data Protection Rights
BTG is committed to protecting your privacy and therefore only uses the information it gathers regarding your person in compliance with the prevailing Federal Data Protection Law (DSG).
This data protection advice explains, in the sense of these provisions, which non-user-related and user-related data gathered while you visit our website is processed and used by BTG, and how this is done.
BTG reserves the right to amend the information contained in this data protection advice in line with changes in legislation, adjudication or business processes, without prior notification. The valid formulation is the respective version published here.
b) Data Security
The protection of your data enjoys high priority at the BTG. We operate active data protection to guarantee the confidentiality of all user-related data.
3. How data is gathered and processed while you visit our website
a) What non-user-related data does BTG gather while you are visiting our website?
Each time a user accesses our website, i.e. each time a user retrieves or attempts to retrieve a file on this server, data referring to this process is stored in a log file. This data is not user-related; we can therefore not generally ascertain which user has retrieved which data and neither do we attempt to ascertain this information.
b) Each time a file is retrieved, a dataset is saved comprising the following items:
- * IP address (possibly user-related)
- * Name of the retrieved file
- * Date and time of file retrieval
- * Volume of data transferred
- * Report as to whether retrieval was successful
- * Report as to why retrieval failed
- * Name of Internet service provider
- * Browser information (e.g. type of browser and monitor resolution)
- * Operating system
- * Website from which you arrived on our site.
c) How does BTG use the non-user-related data it gathers?
All of the aforementioned data is used for our own statistical evaluations. We use this data to make our website better and safer for you to use.
d) What user-related data does BTG gather while you are visiting our website?
The personal data you enter (such as your name, address, and contact data) is sent to a central e-mail address in the form of an online contact form, and read and evaluated by our service personnel. This means that your personal data is stored temporarily in a mailbox pending further processing, and is deleted automatically after completion of processing (after four weeks at the latest).
The personal data we receive is used exclusively for the purpose of getting in contact with you and responding to your enquiry. No matter much we endeavour to maintain the security of your data in compliance with prevailing data protection laws, no electronic communication is completely safe. It can therefore not be excluded that, despite the efforts made by us, any information that you disclose voluntarily through the Internet may be used by others. For this reason, we are unable to accept any responsibility or liability for information becoming disclosed due to errors in data transmission and/or unauthorised access by third parties.
BTG currently uses temporary cookies for the purpose of rendering our Internet services more customer friendly, effective, and safe. These so-called session cookies are deleted at the end of your Internet session.
