The EKBO is concerned about the protection of your personal data – this page is intended to make transparent how we handle the personal data you provide to us. The constant optimization of our website is very important to us. Therefore, computer-related data is stored to track trends and compile statistics. This stored data is also used for purposes of identifying and tracking unauthorized attempts to access our web server. Therefore, logged data is stored and evaluated in case of unauthorized access. The evaluation is carried out by employees of the EKBO. We have made all employees aware of the data protection regulations and obligated them to comply with them.
The Data Protection Act of the Evangelical Church in Germany gives you various options to check our handling of your personal data yourself by providing information and notification and to influence it yourself by correcting, deleting and blocking data. You have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing, as well as a right to correct, block or delete this data.

Cookies among others
Every time the website is accessed, relevant access data is stored for the above-mentioned security and statistical reasons. User profiles are not created. A passing on to third parties, also in extracts, does not take place. Depending on the access protocol used, the log record contains information with the following contents:
- IP address of the requesting computer
- Date and time of the request
- access method/function requested by the requesting computer
- input values transmitted by the requesting computer (e.g. form entries)
- Access status of the web server (file transferred, file not found, command not executed…)
- Name of the requested file (URL) and, if applicable, the network path from which the file was requested or the desired function was initiated (referrer).
If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (e.g. in the context of a personal registration, order, request or communication) is given, the input of these data takes place voluntarily.
If you send us an e-mail, your e-mail address will only be used for correspondence with you.
Our website contains links to other websites. We have no influence on their content and on whether their operators comply with data protection regulations.
Social Media PlugIns
Our subpages partially use social media plug-ins (YouTube and Twitter). In this process, personal data of the users is transferred to the providers of these services (i.e., the companies registered in the USA Google LLC and Twitter Inc.) forwarded (at least IP addresses). We are currently working on minimizing this and in the future we want to reach the content from social media entirely without embedding these plug-ins. No social media plugins are used on our homepage.
This website uses the Google Maps product from Google Inc for route planning. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of automatically collected data by Google Inc, its representatives and third parties.
Use of personal data and purpose limitation
All personal data arising in the context of the Internet services will be collected, processed and used in accordance with the applicable provisions on the protection of personal data only for the purpose of this service and to protect our own legitimate interests with regard to the information, advice and support of our visitors and a demand-oriented offer design. The EKBO will transmit personal data to institutions (authorities) entitled to receive information if the EKBO is obliged to do so by legal provisions or by court order. Unless prohibited by law, we will notify you of such transfer.
Photo/video recordings and streaming
As part of our press and public relations work, photos and videos are taken at events and appointments or published via live stream on the Internet, on which you may be recognizable. You can object to the recording and/or publication.
If you wish to object to the use of your data for information, a short message by e-mail or post to us is sufficient at any time. You can find the contact details in the imprint.
This website uses the donation tool kollekte.app of the company Digital.Wolff, Plötz & Co GmbH., which is integrated via iFrame, an auxiliary element with a direct link to enter data on the website kollekte.app.
By default, kollekte.app uses only the local cache from the user’s browser to store data only as long as it is needed for the current operation. After the current process is finished, the entered data will no longer be stored by kollekte.app. The deactivation of a cache by the user does not lead to any restriction of the functionality of kollekte.app.
Thus, when processing a donation, only necessary information is collected to complete the current payment process involving the payment service provider VR Payment. When donating by credit card, this is the card information and the cardholder’s address information. When donating by SEPA direct debit, it is the account information as well as the address data of the account holder. The collection of address data is based on the EU Directive PSD2 on the regulation of payment services and payment service providers. The entered data is transmitted directly to the payment service provider VR Payment, the consistory can see it. Digital.Wolff stores and uses the data according to the legal guidelines for the processing and settlement of payments.
In principle, data is thus only passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract and/or there is a legal obligation to do so in individual cases.
