Naturland e.V. attaches great importance to compliance with the data protection laws and thus to the protection of your personal data. In this privacy notice we should like to explain to you what data we collect whenever you use our internet website naturland.de and what measures we adopt to protect your data.
The following privacy notice is valid from 25th May, 2018.

1 The data we process, how long we process it and the purpose for which we process it

1.1 The use of our website as a source of information

The information we process. Whenever you use our website simply as a source of information, meaning that you do not register with us or provide us with information by other means, then we only collect the personal data which your browser transmits to our server. When you visit our website, we collect the following data: IP address, date and time of the request, the time zone difference to GMT (Greenwich Mean Time), the contents of the request (specific page), the access status/HTTP status code, the quantity of data transferred in each case, the website from which the request has come, the browser, operating system and its interface, the language and version of the browser software.
Purpose and legal basis. The purpose of processing your personal data is to make it technically possible for you to access our website and to ensure its stability and security. The legal basis for the processing operation is to safeguard our legitimate interests. The purposes described above constitute our legitimate interest in processing your personal data.
How long we keep the information. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to accomplish the purpose for which it was collected. Where data is captured to enable provision of the website, this happens at the end of each session. We store IP addresses for seven days to be able to trace any abuse.

1.2 e-Newsletter

The information we process. When you subscribe to our newsletter, we ask you to provide your name and your email address. Any further details you provide are voluntary. First of all you receive an email with a link to click on to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. In this way we can prevent anyone else ordering the newsletter improperly in your name. If you have agreed to us analysing how you use our newsletter, we analyse the browser used and when and from which location you opened the newsletter and the contents that interested you.
Purpose and legal basis. Your data is only used for the purpose of sending you our newsletter and for our customer service to contact you individually (as far as this is legally permissible) and, if applicable, after researching further data to make you offers and clarify your needs with respect to the services we offer. We analyse your use of our newsletter to improve our services. We save your subscription to the newsletter and, where applicable, your agreement to usage analysis, and your confirmation of your subscription in order to be able to prove that you did actually subscribe to the newsletter. The legal basis is thus your consent and, so far as it concerns proof of your consent and permission for us to approach interested parties, our legitimate interests. In this respect our legitimate interest is to avoid unwarranted claims or to further the association's objectives, as the case may be.
How long we keep the information. For the purpose of sending you the newsletter and of usage analysis we save your data until you revoke your consent or until the definite discontinuation of the newsletter. For purposes of the provision of services to interested parties we delete your data as soon as you object to its being used or five years after your last expression of interest, and for the purpose of verifying your consent up to three years after the last newsletter was sent to you. If you do not confirm your subscription to the newsletter, we delete your data after 24 hours.

1.3 Downloading leaflets, newsletters

If you wish to download leaflets, newsletters and other content from our website, clause 1.1 applies accordingly.

1.4 Login/members’ only pages

The information we process. Users can log into our website by providing personal data on the homepage. On the members' only pages, certain more detailed information is provided. To access these pages, our members of staff give you an identification code. The following data are recorded in the registration process: surname, given name, address, identification code, password. We do not share your information with third parties. The website has a box you may tick if you wish to remain logged in.
Purpose and legal basis. The data is collected for the purpose of allowing you to log in to the password-protected pages and, furthermore, to avoid you having to enter your login details again the next time you visit the site. We store this data on the basis of the contract concluded with you upon registration.
How long we keep the information. The data cited here is stored until you withdraw your registration.

1.5 Integration of Twitter, Facebook, YouTube

We embed recommendation buttons from social networks, known as social plug-ins, in our website, using the two click solution. This enables you to use social media whilst at the same time protecting your privacy. Only after you have clicked on the button or link visible on our site is direct contact established between you and the social network. This solution prevents you leaving information behind on every page you visit. In particular we use links to Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. These plug-ins on our website are identified by their respective logos.
We have, however, no influence on the data transmitted by clicking on the links. You should assume that at the least your IP address and further device-related information (i. e. all data mentioned under clause 1.1) are registered and made use of. It is probable that Twitter, Facebook and YouTube will try to save cookies on your computer. We encourage you to read the privacy notices of the respective social media providers, since your activities on our website which are made public on social media are no longer covered by this privacy notice:
