Data protection

General information
We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (email addresses, name, addresses, account information, etc.) is given, the input of these data takes place voluntarily. You can object to the use of this data at any time, for example if you no longer wish to receive information about Bewegungsstiftung's work. In addition, personal data is collected, processed and used in compliance with the provisions of the German Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), the German Data Protection Act and the German Telemedia Act, insofar as this is necessary for processing an order.

Executive director: Jens Bock

Data protection officer
You can reach our data protection officer Maret Vogt by e-mail at (PGP key). Maret will be happy to provide you with information or suggestions on the subject of data protection.

Purposes of processing / legal basis
We store users' personal data insofar as this is necessary for the administration of donations or for foundation purposes, or the user has also consented, for example, to receive further information about Bewegungsstiftung's work.

We process your data because either
you have given your express consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR,
according to Article 6 (1) (b) of the DSGVO, the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract with you,
according to Article 6 (1) (c) the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject,
according to Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR, processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not having your data used.

Recipients of your data
We do not sell your data to third parties, nor do we provide or make it available to third parties for use outside of this statement. We provide data to service providers when we use the services of third-party providers. This is the case, for example, when sending out our publications and newsletter. We conclude data protection agreements with our external service providers in advance. The service providers are only allowed to use the data for the completion of the order and the data is deleted after completion of the order. Data processing in a so-called third country does not take place.

Data collection for the transmission of information
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter.
You can also register for our mailing list by voluntarily providing us with your postal address. No further data will be collected. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and only pass it on to special service providers who support us in sending the newsletter e-mails (Rapidmail) as well as in sending letters (Letter-Shop). Otherwise, we do not pass this data on to third parties.

Our newsletter service provider Rapidmail states that all data is stored on servers in Germany. Details on Rapidmail's handling of data protection and data security as well as contact to the Rapidmail data protection officer can be found here.

Our email service provider provides link and opening tracking as standard for the needs-based design of the newsletter. We do not use this option, but we would like to point this out clearly. Should we decide to use tracking, the purpose (needs-based design of the newsletter) would constitute a legitimate interest, for the protection of which we would process the necessary personal data (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO).

Right to information, deletion, blocking
You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. You can also contact us by e-mail, letter post or telephone to have your data changed, renewed or deleted (, 04231/957 540, Bewegungsstiftung, Artilleriestraße 6, 27283 Verden).
According to the Federal Data Protection Act, you have a right to free information about your stored data and, if applicable, a right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted.
If you have any further questions or comments on the subject of data protection, please send an e-mail to, (PGP key).

Data collection on our website
Our servers are located in Germany and work with up-to-date SSL encryption. SSL guarantees secure and encrypted data transmission that is not accessible from the outside (recognisable by the "s" in "https://" in the address line of the web browser).

The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This includes browser type and browser version, operating system used, search terms, incoming and outgoing pages and the time of the server request. We use this information with the help of the analysis programme Webalizer for statistical evaluation of visitor access. All data is treated confidentially and is only used to optimise our internet presence. No data is passed on to third parties. This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources.

In addition, the IP addresses of website visitors are stored in the provider's computer centre in order to ensure the secure operation of the web server. These are deleted after seven days. We as the website operator do not have access to the IP addresses.

This website partly uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

The cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

No profiling
We do not process your personal data for profiling purposes. As a matter of principle, we do not use automated decision-making to establish and implement the contractual relationship.

Consequences of not providing your personal data
Of course, you are not obliged to provide us with your data at any time. However, we only ask you for the most necessary data in our forms - if we do not have this available, we will not be able to meet your requests (sending information, newsletters, collecting donations and endowments, etc.).
