Data Protection

MISEREOR aims to provide you with a broad online offering while protecting your right to information, self-determination and privacy. We see compliance with data protection regulations as a must, a fact that is reflected in our data protection principles.

1. Our data protection principles

MISEREOR takes data security on the Internet seriously. Consequently, we protect your data using modern security systems, comply with data protection legislation and use your data only for those purposes for which you have authorised us. Here you can find out exactly which of your data we have stored and what we do with it.

2. Anonymous access

Normally you can access our webpages without providing any personal data, i.e. you can use our website anonymously. MISEREOR only requests personal data when you make a donation or avail yourself of a service online.

3. Registration, database input

If you wish to make a donation or use a service (e.g. order or download information, register for information services or call up information) online, then we require your personal data in order to deliver these services. As you go through the registration process your attention is drawn explicitly to the fact that we are storing those data. These obligatory data – the scope of which is evident from the registration form – are needed and used solely for contractual purposes. The data marked "optional" are not required for registration. We use your address for our public information and education purposes. To have it removed from our mailing list, simply instruct us accordingly at MISEREOR-Geschäftsstelle, Mozartstrasse 9, D-52064 Aachen, Germany.

4. User profiles

MISEREOR does not generate any personalised user profiles. When you visit our website, your data are stored on an anonymous basis, i.e. are not in any way linked to your name. MISEREOR then uses these anonymous data to improve the user-friendliness and design of its website. 5. Cookies MISEREOR also uses cookies. Cookies are files that we store on your hard disk, and not on our server. The information contained in these cookies prevents you for instance from having to input all your registration data again each time you access our services. Of course you can also use our website without cookies. For this purpose, please de-activate the setting of cookies in your browser. For more information on how this works, please consult the instructions supplied by your browser manufacturer. If you do not accept cookies, this can, however, restrict your options for accessing certain services we offer.

6. Right of information

Once you are a registered user we will gladly supply you with information on your stored data at any time, free of charge. If interested, please contact us at MISEREOR-Geschäftsstelle, Mozartstrasse 9, D-52064 Aachen, Germany.

7. Deletion

Upon request, we will delete your data completely and immediately. Once again, if interested please contact us at MISEREOR-Geschäftsstelle, Mozartstrasse 9, D-52064 Aachen, Germany. Please note that we can only delete your data after our contractual relationship has come to an end. Upon request, we will gladly inform you once we have deleted your data.
