We are very pleased that you are interested in our homepage. Data protection is particularly important to us. The use of the website is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services on our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject is always in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the applicable country-specific data protection regulations. By means of this data protection declaration, we would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of the rights to which they are entitled by means of this data protection declaration.
As the controller responsible for processing, the organization has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.
The data protection declaration of the organization “Goslar helps Ukraine” is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.
We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:
- a) Personal data Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). A natural person is considered to be identifiable if, directly or indirectly, in particular by means of assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more special features, the expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person can be identified.
- b) Data subject Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the data controller.

- f) Pseudonymization Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is stored separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures that ensure that the personal Data is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
- g) Controller or person responsible for processing Controller or person responsible for processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body that alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. If the purposes and means of this processing are specified by Union law or the law of the Member States, the person responsible or the specific criteria for his naming can be provided for by Union law or the law of the Member States.
- h) Processor Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the person responsible.
- i) Recipient Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or Member State law are not considered recipients.
- j) Third party Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.

2. Name and address of the person responsible for processing
The person responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the member states of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is:
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
4. Collection of general data and information
The organization’s website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by an affected person or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used to avert threats in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the organization does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore evaluated by the organization statistically on the one hand and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.
5. Contact option via the website
Due to legal regulations, the organization’s website contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a person concerned contacts the person responsible for processing by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned will be automatically saved. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
6. Comment function in the blog on the website
The organization offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog, which is on the website of the controller. A blog is a portal maintained on a website, usually open to the public, in which one or more people called bloggers or web bloggers can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.
If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, information about the time the comment was entered and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject will be stored and published in addition to the comments left by the data subject. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the data subject is also logged. The IP address is stored for security reasons and in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content by submitting a comment. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the person responsible for processing, so that he could exculpate himself in the event of a violation of the law. This collected personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the legal defense of the person responsible for processing.
7. Subscription to blog comments on the website
The comments made in the organization’s blog can generally be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, it is possible for a commenter to subscribe to the comments that follow their comment on a specific blog post.
If a data subject decides to subscribe to comments, the person responsible for processing sends an automatic confirmation e-mail in order to check in the double opt-in procedure whether the owner of the e-mail address provided is really responsible for this option decided. The option to subscribe to comments can be unsubscribed at any time.
8. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data
The person responsible for processing processes and stores the personal data of the person concerned only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this is required by the European directive and regulation giver or another legislator in laws or regulations which the person responsible for processing subject, was provided.

If the personal data has been made public by the organization and our company, as the person responsible, is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 Para. 1 DS-GVO, the organization shall take appropriate measures, including technical ones, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs to notify other data controllers processing the published personal data that the data subject has requested those other data controllers to delete any links to, or copies or replications of, that personal data , insofar as the processing is not necessary. The employee of the organization will arrange the necessary in individual cases.
- e) Right to restriction of processing Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulation giver to demand that the person responsible restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met:

Furthermore, when exercising their right to data portability in accordance with Art. 20 Para the rights and freedoms of other persons are not impaired by this. In order to assert the right to data transferability, the person concerned can contact an employee of the organization at any time.
- g) Right to object Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulation giver, for reasons that arise from their particular situation, at any time against the processing of personal data concerning them, which is based on Art. 6 para. 1 letters e or f DS-GVO to file an objection. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The organization will no longer process the personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If the organization processes personal data in order to operate direct advertising, the person concerned has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to the organization of the processing for direct marketing purposes, the organization will no longer process the personal data for these purposes. In addition, the data subject has the right, for reasons arising from their particular situation, against the processing of personal data relating to them, which is carried out in the organization for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes in accordance with Art. 89 Para. 1 DS-GVO to object, unless such processing is necessary to fulfill a task in the public interest. In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any employee of the organization or another employee directly.

- h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European directive and regulation giver not to be subjected to a decision based exclusively on automated processing – including profiling – which has legal effect on him or her similarly significantly affected, unless the decision is (1) necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) permitted by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is carried out with the express consent of the data subject. If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject’s explicit consent, the organization shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision. If the data subject wishes to assert rights relating to automated decisions, they can contact an employee of the data controller at any time.

If the data subject wishes to assert their right to revoke consent, they can contact an employee of the data controller at any time.
10. Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data could become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not prevail. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
11. Legitimate interests in processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is conducting our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.
12. Duration for which the personal data will be stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.
13. Statutory or contractual requirements for providing the personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us, which must then be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.
