On this website we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before this happens. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This means that IP addresses are further processed in a shortened form, so that a personal reference can be excluded. If the data collected about you contains a personal reference, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is immediately deleted.

We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework). 

The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit a) DSGVO, namely your consent. The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached will be automatically deleted once a month.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when visiting this website. To prevent Universal Analytics from collecting data across multiple devices, you must opt-out on all systems in use. If you use the link at the bottom of the page, you can disable tracking by Google Analytics.

This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in your customer account under "My Data", "Personal Data".

Social Plugins

Our website uses so-called "social plugins" from third-party services that operate social networks. Currently, these are social media plug-ins from Facebook, Google+, Twitter and WhatsApp. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plugins. You can recognize the provider of the plugin by its initial letter or logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider of the plugin via the button. Only if you click on the marked box and thereby activate it, the plugin provider will receive the information that you have visited the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned under point 3 of this declaration will be transmitted. In the case of Facebook, according to the respective providers in Germany, the IP address is anonymized immediately after it is collected. By activating the plugin, therefore, personal data is transmitted from you to the respective plugin provider and stored there (in the case of US providers in the USA). Since the plugin provider collects data in particular via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser's security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box.

We have no influence on the collected data and data processing procedures, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information about the deletion of the collected data by the plugin provider. 

The plugin provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of presenting need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. 

Through the plugins we offer you the possibility to interact with the social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. 

Legal basis for the use of the Plugins is art. 6 exp. 1 S. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

The data transfer is independent of whether you have an account with the plugin provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in at the plugin provider, your data collected by us will be directly assigned to your existing account at the plugin provider. If you click on the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plugin provider will also save this information in your user account and publicly share it with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, but especially before activating the button, as you can avoid an assignment to your profile at the plugin provider.

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the following privacy statements of these providers. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings to protect your privacy. Addresses of the respective plugin providers and URL with their data protection information:

Facebook Custom Audience 

On our website, the custom Audiences pixel of Facebook, Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025 (hereinafter "Facebook") is integrated. If you have visited our website using the embedded pixel and then log in to Facebook, your Facebook account will be linked to the information that you have previously visited our website. In addition, if your Facebook account meets certain parameters (e.g. age, gender, region) that we have previously defined and is therefore part of a specific target group (so-called "audience") of ours, we can display interest-based advertising on Facebook that is specially tailored to this target group. However, we will not be informed about the data stored in your Facebook account.

For Facebook Custom Audience, we process the following data and transmit it to Facebook:

  • Date and time of access
  • Visited category of our online service
  • IP - Address
  • Domain Name

Your data will be processed in order to display advertising within Facebook that is in line with your interests on the basis of article 6 paragraph 1 letter f) DSGVO. 

Further information on the type, scope, purposes, legal basis and objection possibilities of data processing by Facebook as well as your setting options for protecting your privacy can be found in the Facebook data protection guidelines, which can be found, among other things, at https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audiences/

and https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation can be found.

Facebook Pixel

We use the "Facebook Pixel" on our website, a service of Facebook Inc, 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA (hereinafter referred to as: "Facebook"). The "Facebook Pixel" enables Facebook to display our ads on Facebook, so-called "Facebook Ads", only to those Facebook users who were visitors to our website. The Facebook pixel enables us to check whether a user has been redirected to our website and/or made a donation after clicking on our Facebook Ads. Among other things, the Facebook pixel uses cookies, i.e. small text files that are stored locally in the cache of your web browser on your end device. If you are logged into Facebook with your user account, your visit to our online offer will be noted in your user account. The data collected about you is anonymous to us, so we cannot draw any conclusions about your identity. However, this data can be linked by Facebook with your user account there. We have no influence on the extent and further use of data collected by Facebook through the use of the Facebook Pixel. To the best of our knowledge, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you have a user account with Facebook and are registered, Facebook can assign the visit to your user account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, it is possible that Facebook may learn and store your IP address and other identifying information.

We use the Facebook pixel for marketing and optimization purposes, in particular to display relevant and interesting advertisements within Facebook on the basis of article 6 paragraph 1 letter f) DSGVO and thus improve our offer, make it more interesting for you as a user and avoid annoying advertisements. Herein lies also our legitimate interest in the processing of the above data. The collected data will only be stored for as long as it is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected.

You can object to the aforementioned collection by the Facebook Pixel as well as the use of your data for the display of Facebook-Ads. You can make settings regarding the types of ads that are displayed to you within Facebook on the following Facebook website: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads. In addition, you can deactivate cookies, which are used to measure reach and advertising purposes, via the following websites: 

Please note that this setting will also be deleted if you delete your cookies.

In addition, Facebook has subjected itself to the privacy shield agreement concluded between the European Union and the USA and has been certified. As a result, Facebook undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law.

Embedding YouTube videos

We have included YouTube videos on our website, which are stored at http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all embedded in "enhanced privacy mode", which means that no information about you as a user is transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos will the data mentioned in the following paragraph be transferred. We have no influence on this data transfer.

By visiting our website, YouTube receives, among other things, the information that you have visited the corresponding subpage of our website. This happens regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile on YouTube, you have to log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of providing need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

The legal basis for the inclusion of YouTube videos is Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f) DSGVO. The purpose of this is the display of YouTube videos. The pursued legitimate interest lies in enabling the viewing of YouTube videos.

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by YouTube can be found in the Privacy Policy. There you will also find further information on your rights and setting options to protect your privacy: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Integration of Google Maps

On this website we use the offer of Google Maps. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to use the map function conveniently.

When you visit the website, Google receives, among other things, the information that you have called up the corresponding subpage of our website. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, you have to log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

The legal basis for the integration of Google Maps maps is Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f) DSGVO. The purpose of this is to provide a map service. The legitimate interest pursued thereby is to enable the provision of a map service.

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the provider's data protection declarations. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings to protect your privacy: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Internal recipients: Within our company, only those persons who need access for the above mentioned purposes have access. 

External recipients: We will only pass on your personal data to external recipients outside of Help if this is necessary to process or handle your request, if another legal permission exists or if we have your consent to do so.

External recipients can be:

a) Order processors

Service providers we use to provide services, for example in the areas of technical infrastructure and maintenance for our offerings or the provision of content. These contract processors are carefully selected and regularly reviewed by us to ensure that your privacy is protected. The service providers may only use the data for the purposes we have specified.

b) Public authorities

Authorities and state institutions, such as public prosecutors' offices, courts or tax authorities, to which we must transfer personal data for legally binding reasons

c) Private bodies

To process the donation payments, we will pass on your payment data to the credit institute commissioned with the payment. These companies may only use your data for order processing and not for other purposes.

If a data transfer takes place to entities whose registered office or place of business is not located in a member state of the European Union or in another state that is a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, we will ensure prior to the transfer that, apart from exceptional cases permitted by law, either an adequate level of data protection exists at the recipient's end (e.g. e.g. by an adequacy decision of the European Commission, by appropriate safeguards such as self-certification of the recipient for the EU-US Privacy Shield or the agreement of so-called EU standard contractual clauses of the European Union with the recipient) or your sufficient consent has been obtained.

Please refer to the respective chapter on data processing for the storage period of personal data. In addition, the following generally applies: we only store your personal data for as long as it is necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes or - in the case of consent - as long as you have not revoked your consent.  In the event of an objection, we will delete your personal data, unless further processing is permitted under the relevant legal provisions. We also delete your personal data if we are obliged to do so for legal reasons.

As a person affected by the data processing, you have numerous rights as listed below: 

Right to information: You have the right to receive information about the data we have stored about you. 

Right of correction and deletion: You can demand that we correct incorrect data and - if the legal requirements are met - delete your data. 

Restriction of processing: You can demand that we restrict the processing of your data, provided the legal requirements are met. 

Data transferability: If you have provided us with data on the basis of a contract or consent, you can demand, if the legal requirements are met, that you receive the data you have provided in a structured, common and machine-readable format or that we transfer it to another responsible party.

Revocation of consent: If you have given us consent to process your data, you can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. The legality of the processing of your data until revocation remains unaffected.

Right of complaint to the supervisory authority: You can also submit a complaint to the supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of your data violates applicable law. You can contact the data protection authority responsible for your place of residence or your country or the data protection authority responsible for us.

Your contact with us: Furthermore, you can contact us free of charge if you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal data, your rights as a data subject and any consent you may have given. To exercise all of your aforementioned rights, please contact datenschutz@help-ev.de or by post at the address given above under "Contact". Please make sure that we can clearly identify you.

In addition to the general rights of data subjects listed under "Data subject rights" in this data protection declaration, you have a right of objection in accordance with Art. 21 DSGVO.

Right of objection on a case-by-case basis: You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you, which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 letter e) DSGVO (data processing in the public interest), and Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) DSGVO (data processing based on a weighing of interests). This also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 DSGVO. If you lodge an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Right to object to the processing of data for the purpose of direct marketing: In individual cases, we process your data for the purpose of direct marketing. You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising.  This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object to processing for the purposes of direct marketing, your personal data will no longer be processed for those purposes.

The objection can be made without any form requirements. Please send it to us:
