In the following, we inform you about the collection of personal data when using our website. Personal data is all data that can be related to you personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, user behaviour. We have taken extensive technical and operational precautions to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. The security procedures are regularly reviewed and adapted.
The person responsible for data processing
The responsible party according to Art. 4 para. 7 of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) is
Verein für Heimatpflege e.V. Viersen - Gerberstraße 20a - 41748 Viersen
represented by the board members Dr. Albert Pauly and Marlies Brüse.
You have the following rights in relation to us in respect of personal data relating to you:
You have a right of access, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, objection to processing and data portability. Insofar as an agreement is based on your consent, you have the right to revoke this with respect to us with effect for the future.
Right in case of data processing according to legitimate interest
Pursuant to Art. 21(1) DSGVO, you have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(e) DSGVO (data processing in the public interest) or on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO ( data processing for the purposes of legitimate interest ).
In the event of an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
You also have the right to complain to a competent data protection supervisory authority about our processing of your personal data.
Collection of personal data when visiting our website
When using the website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect the personal data that your browser automatically transmits to our server. This is data that is technically required to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security: IP address, date and time of the request, URL of the requested page, website from which the request comes, browser, operating system, language and version of the browser software. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Contacting us by e-mail
When you contact us by e-mail, the data you provide (your e-mail address, name and telephone number, if applicable) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions. Any communication of this information is expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Insofar as this involves information on communication channels (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number), you also consent to us contacting you via these accesses, if necessary, in order to answer your request. You can, of course, revoke this consent at any time for the future. We delete the data accruing in this context after storage is no longer necessary or restrict processing if there are legal retention periods.
When you fill out our membership application form (also online, if applicable), the data you provide (name, e-mail address, address and, if applicable, telephone number, as well as data on birthday and bank details) are stored by us in order to process your membership application and your subsequent membership. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. Insofar as we request information in this context that is not absolutely necessary, we have always marked this as optional.
The communication of this information is expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Insofar as this involves information on communication channels (for example, e-mail address, telephone number), you consent to us contacting you via this access, if necessary, if this is required within the scope of membership or for processing the collection (e.g. in the event of problems with account changes). You can revoke this consent at any time for the future. You also consent to us sending you information about our activities, invitations to events and general meetings, if applicable. You can revoke this consent at any time for the future.
We delete the data accruing in this context after storage is no longer necessary or restrict processing if there are legal retention periods.

As a matter of principle, your data will not be transferred to third parties unless you have expressly consented to the transfer of your data beforehand. We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation by third parties for the transmission of advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby expressly prohibited. The operators of the site expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example through spam mails.
