General principles of data protection
The Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Krebstherapie e.V. takes the protection of your data, which you have entrusted to us, very seriously. This is so-called "personal data", which is an asset particularly worthy of protection. As a non-profit association, we always treat your data confidentially and follow the existing legal rules on data protection.
We want you to know how we collect your data, which of your data is stored, why we do this, what we need it for, and when we delete it. This declaration is intended to provide you with a sufficient explanation of our data protection measures. Furthermore, we would like to inform you about your rights regarding your data with us. This statement is intended to explain to you in sufficient detail the data protection measures of the Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Krebstherapie e.V. If you have any questions that are not answered by this data protection declaration, please contact Dr. Rainer Scheer, who is responsible for the data protection of the Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Krebstherapie e.V. The contact details can be found at the end of this statement.
How do we collect your data? Which data do we collect, process, store and link? When do we delete them?
We only collect personal data directly from you, for example when you become a member of the Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Krebstherapie e.V. or when you support our work. The legal basis for these data collection is described in the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) in Article 6 paragraph 1, more specifically in paragraph b (membership in our association as a contractual relationship) as well as in paragraph f (to safeguard and achieve our association goals). If you send the Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Krebstherapie e.V. a signed application for membership or a SEPA direct debit mandate or transfer the membership fee or a donation to us, your data such as first name, surname, title, street with house number, postcode with place of residence and the country you come from will be stored as basic data. We need this basic data for the support service and administration of members, as well as for appeals for danations and for advertising in order to maintain and achieve our own goals (defined in the statutes). We also ask for your e-mail address and telephone number, where we can reach you. Both are voluntary information. You can revoke this voluntary data and its use at any time and without justification (see right of revocation).
I necessary, your data will be linked to your bank details, the IBAN or BIC, the date of receipt of payment, the start and end of your membership and the date of deletion of your data after the storage period has expired. Thus, your personal data will be deleted after termination of your membership, unless it has to be kept according to tax law requirements. With regard to your rights concerning your data, we will inform you in a later chapter of this declaration.
For what purpose do we need this data?
The data is required by us,
- to get in touch with you or to maintain contact with you. That is for example
- to invite you to our general meetings and events,
- to keep you up to date about news in our association,
- to send you our annual brochure „Öschelbronner Akzente“, which we publish together with the Klinik Öschelbronn and Anthromed Öschelbronn,
- to send you your donation receipts,
- for sending appeals for donations and advertising to achieve the Society's own goals (defined in the statutes )
- to answer your enquiries by post, by telephone  or by e-mail . When communicating by e-mail, we must point out as a precaution that this is primarily intended to simplify communication with each other, but that this type of communication may also have security gaps. A complete protection of e-mail traffic against access by third parties is not possible.
If you send us enquiries by contact or membership form, your details from the respective enquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case of follow-up enquiries.
Updating your data with us
We ask you to keep your data up to date at all times, i.e. to inform us in good time an in writing of any changes (e.g. address, telephone and e-mail details, account details). In this case, the previous data will be replaced or deleted.
Who receives knowledge of your data and to whom is it forwarded?
As a matter of principle, your data remains in the business area of the Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Krebstherapie e.V.
No data will be transferred to unauthorized third parties. Your data will only be communicated if we are obliged to hand over, for example due to a court or official order.
