Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below, we will inform you in detail about how we handle your data.

1. Accessing data and hosting

You can visit our website without providing any personal information. Each time you access a website, the web server only automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data), and documents the access. This access data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our services. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer, which are predominant in the context of a balancing of interests, in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 let. f GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). All access data is deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit to the site.

2. Data processing for contacting us and for member administration

2.1 Data processing for membership administration

For the purpose of member administration in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 let. b GDPR, we collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us as part of your registration. Mandatory fields are marked as such, since, in these cases, we absolutely need the data for registration and we cannot complete the registration without their specification. The data collected can be seen in the respective input forms.

2.2 Member account

Insofar as you have given your consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 let. a GDPR by deciding to open a member account, we will use your data for the purpose of opening a member account as well as for storing your data on our website. Your member account will be deleted when you leave the Verein zur Förderung internationaler Studenten in Weihenstephan e.V. after submitting a written declaration to the general meeting. After deletion of your member account, your data will be deleted.

2.3 Establishing contact

In the context of member communication, we collect personal data to process your inquiries in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 let. b GDPR if you voluntarily provide us with this data when contacting us (e.g., via contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such, since, in these cases, we absolutely need the data to process your contact. The data collected can be seen in the respective input forms. After complete processing of your request, your data will be deleted, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 let. a GDPR or we reserve the right to use data beyond this point, which is permitted by law and about which we will inform you via written statement.

3. Data processing for the purpose of shipment processing

For the fulfillment of the contract in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 let. b GDPR, we will pass on your data to the shipping service provider commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary during shipping.

4. Data processing for payment processing

For the processing of donations and membership fees, we work with these partners: technical service providers, credit institutions, payment service providers.

4.1 Data processing for transaction processing

Depending on the selected payment method, we will pass on the data necessary for processing the payment transaction to our technical service providers, who work for us within the framework of order processing, or to the commissioned credit institutions or to the selected payment service provider, insofar as this is necessary for processing the payment. This serves the fulfillment of the contract according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 let. b GDPR. In some cases, the payment service providers collect the data required for processing the payment themselves, e.g., on their own website or via technical integration. In this respect, the privacy policy of the respective payment service provider applies.

If you have any questions about our payment processing partners and the basis of our cooperation with them, please use the contact option described in this privacy policy.

4.2 Data processing for the purpose of fraud prevention and optimisation of our payment processes

Where applicable, we provide our service providers with additional data, which they use together with the data necessary for the processing of payment as our processors for the purpose of fraud prevention and optimisation of our payment processes (e.g., invoicing, processing of contested payments, accounting support). In accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 let. f GDPR, this serves to protect our legitimate interests in our protection against fraud or in efficient payment management, which outweigh our interests in the context of a balancing of interests.
