Privacy Policy

Data needs better protection! The International Society for Human Rights (ISHR) adheres to this in accordance with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (‘GDPR’) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (‘DPA’) referred to as the ‘data protection legislation’ and other data protection regulations. Here, in the data protection declaration of the ISHR, you will find detailed information.

Data protection is important to us! We only collect data for as long as is necessary for important reasons so that we can issue you a donation receipt, where there are statutory regulations, etc. Data protection is of particular importance to the International Society for Human Rights (ISHR). With this data protection declaration, we would like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. In addition, you will be informed about your rights with this data protection declaration.

The processing of personal data, such as a person’s name, address or email address, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations.

3. Cookies

The website of the International Society for Human Rights (ISHR) uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and stored on a computer system via an internet browser.

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, the International Society for Human Rights (ISHR) can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

A cookie can be used to optimize the information and offers on our website in the interests of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. The user of a website that uses cookies, for example, does not have to enter his access data every time he visits the website, because this is taken over by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of 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 using 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, under certain circumstances not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website of the International Society for Human Rights (ISHR) collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. The following can be recorded: (1) the 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 that use 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 that serves to avert risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, the International Society for Human Rights (ISHR) does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. 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) to 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 statistically evaluated by the International Society for Human Rights (ISHR) and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in the ISHR in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us, The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes.

In order to guarantee data protection-compliant processing, we have concluded a contract for order processing with our host.

d) How long is the data stored?

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. When the website is provided, this is the case when the respective session has ended. The log files are kept accessible only for administrators for 7 days. After that, they are only available indirectly via the reconstruction of backup tapes and will be permanently deleted after four weeks.

5. Registration on our website

The data subject has the option of registering on the website of the data controller by providing personal data.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The person responsible for processing uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. With this addition, the IP address of the data subject’s internet connection is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our website is from a member state of the European Union or from another contracting state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse visitor flows on our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is able to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically triggered by the respective Google Analytics component To transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Every time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on from the link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google considers the installation of the browser add-on to be an objection. If the data subject’s information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or another person who is within their sphere of influence, there is the option of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google can be found at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

13. Data protection regulations for the application and use of Twitter

The controller has integrated Twitter components on this website. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly accessible microblogging service on which users can publish and distribute so-called tweets, i.e. short messages that are limited to 140 characters. These short messages are available to everyone, including anyone who is not logged in to Twitter. The tweets are also displayed to the so-called followers of the respective user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user’s tweets. Twitter also enables a wide audience to be addressed via hashtags, links or retweets.

Twitter is operated by Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically activated by the respective Twitter component prompted to download a representation of the corresponding Twitter component from Twitter. Further information on the Twitter buttons can be found at about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons. As part of this technical process, Twitter receives knowledge of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject. The purpose of integrating the Twitter component is to enable our users to disseminate the content of this website, to make this website known in the digital world and to increase our visitor numbers.

If the data subject is logged in to Twitter at the same time, Twitter recognizes each time our website is accessed by the data subject and for the entire duration of their stay on our website, which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected by the Twitter component and assigned to the respective Twitter account of the data subject by Twitter. If the data subject clicks one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transmitted with it are assigned to the personal Twitter user account of the data subject and saved and processed by Twitter.

Twitter always receives information via the Twitter component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Twitter at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Twitter component or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to Twitter, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of their Twitter account before accessing our website.

The applicable data protection regulations of Twitter are available at twitter.com/privacy.

14. Data protection regulations for the application and use of YouTube

The controller has integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, evaluate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and TV programs, but also music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be called up via the Internet portal.

YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically activated by the respective YouTube component prompted to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are made aware of which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits by calling up a subpage that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the person concerned.

YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to YouTube at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of their YouTube account before accessing our website.

The data protection regulations published by YouTube, which are available at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

15. Data protection regulations for the application and use of OpenStreetMap (ISHR Worldwide)

We integrate map material from OpenStreetMap on our website https://ishr.org/regions/. OpenStreetMap is a project of the OpenStreetMap Foundation, 132 Maney Hill Road, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands B72 1JU, Great Britain, which collects freely usable geodata and maintains it in a database for free use.

When you visit the website, no connection is initially established to the OpenStreetMap servers. Instead of the embedded map, you will initially only see a preview image, which we call up from our web server.With every subsequent interaction on this website a connection to the servers of the OpenStreetMap Foundation is established and data is transferred to the OpenStreetMap Foundation in order to display embedded maps. Further information on data protection in connection with OpenStreet Map can be found in the data protection information of the OpenStreetMap Foundation (https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Privacy_Policy).

When establishing a connection to display the maps, the following data is transmitted to the OpenStreetMap server:

  • IP address,
  • browser and device used,
  • Operating system,
  • Website from which you were redirected to the OpenStreetMap Foundation website (referring web page) and
  • Date and time of the visit to the website.

If you have a user account with OpenStreetMap and are logged in when you visit our website, the following data is also transmitted to the OpenStreetMap servers:

  • user ID,
  • Email address associated with your account and
  • User-blocked content and associated messages.

The integration takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. It is done to make our website more user-friendly and interesting. This is a legitimate interest in the sense of the aforementioned regulation.

You can prevent any data transfer to the OpenStreetMap servers by deactivating JavaScript in your browser. In this case, however, you cannot use the map display.

Further information on data protection in connection with OpenStreetMap can be found here: https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Privacy_Policy

16. Legal basis for processing

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves us as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other 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 cases of inquiries about our products or services. If the IGFM is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had 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 processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of IGFM or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh them. 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 GDPR).

17. Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR is our legitimate interest in carrying out our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

18. Duration for which the personal data are stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the period has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required to fulfil or initiate a contract.

19. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of not providing

We will inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information about the contract partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data that we subsequently have to process. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if the IGFM concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would result in the contract not being concluded with the person concerned. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of not providing the personal data.

20. Existence of automated decision-making

We reject profiling and refrain from it. We also forego automatic decision-making.
