Data protection

This data protection declaration has been translated from the german , where
inconsistencies occur, the german version will take precedence.
Data Protection Declaration
The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. As far
as personal data (for example name, address or email addresses) is collected, this
occurs, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to
third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g.
communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data
against access by third parties is not possible.
The use of the contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation by
third parties for sending unsolicited advertising and information material is hereby
expressly prohibited. We expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event
of unsolicited advertising information being sent, for example through spam mails.

This data protection declaration informs users about the type, scope and purposes of
the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider Facing Finance
e.V., Schönhauser Allee 141 – HINTERHAUS 2, 10437 Berlin (Tel: +49-30-3266
1681, Mail: on this website.
The legal basis of data protection can be found in the General Data Protection Act .
In this policy the terms “we , us and our” refer to the organisation Facing Finance

We collect data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files). Access data
Name of the accessed website, file, date, time and duration of the access,
transferred data volume, notification of successful access, browser type and version,
the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address
and the requesting provider.
Facing Finance e.V. uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose
of operation, security and optimisation of the offer. Facing Finance e.V. reserves the
right, however, to check the log data subsequently if there is a justified suspicion of
illegal use based on concrete evidence.

Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information
that can be traced back to a person. This includes your name, email address or
telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which
websites were viewed by someone count as personal data.
Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is legally
permitted or if the users agree to the data collection.

When contacting Facing Finance e.V. (e.g. via contact form, e-mail, telephone or
fax), the user’s details are stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in
the event that follow-up questions arise.

When users leave comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are
stored. This is done for the security of Facing Finance e.V., if someone writes illegal
contents in comments and contributions (insults, forbidden political propaganda,
etc.). In this case Facing Finance e.V. itself could be prosecuted for the comment or
contribution and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

It may happen that third party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from
Google Maps, survey tools, e.g. from opinion stages, RSS feeds or graphics from
other websites, is integrated within this online offer. This always presupposes that
the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third party providers”)
perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not
send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore
required for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only those
contents whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the
contents. However, we have no influence on this if the third party providers store
the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we inform the users
about this in the following.

Cookies are small files that enable the user’s access device (PC, smartphone, etc.)
to store specific information relating to the device. They serve on the one hand the
user-friendliness of web pages and thus the users (e.g. storage of login data). On
the other hand, they are used to collect statistical data on the use of the website
and to analyse it for the purpose of improving the offer. Users can influence the use
of cookies. Most browsers have an option with which the storage of cookies is
restricted or completely prevented. However, this can limit the use and especially
the comfort of use without cookies.
You can manage many corporate online ad cookies through the US
site or the EU site

If you enter data during registration, it will be used for the purpose of using the
offer. Users can be informed by e-mail about information relevant to offers or
registration, such as changes to the scope of offers or technical circumstances. The
data collected can be seen in the input mask during registration. This includes first
and last name, postal address, email address and their purpose.

This site uses social plugins (buttons) of the social network, which is
operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
(“Facebook”). The plugins can be identified by one of the Facebook logos (e.g. white
or blue “f” or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social
Plugin” or “share on Facebook”.
When a user clicks such a button on a website of Facing Finance (this website), his
browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. The content of the
plugin is then transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated
into the website. Facing Finance e.V. therefore has no influence on the amount of
data Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore directs users to the
following knowledge:
By clicking on the button, Facebook receives information that a user has called up
the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook
can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins,
for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding
information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there.
If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to obtain and
store their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is
stored in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of
the data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and setting options for the
protection of users’ privacy, can be found in Facebook’s data protection
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to use this offer to
collect data about him or her and link it to his or her membership data stored on
Facebook, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.

Our website uses plugins from Google’s YouTube site. This website is operated by
YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
If you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the
YouTube servers is established. The Youtube server will be informed which of our
pages you have visited.
If you are logged into your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your
surfing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging
out of your YouTube account.

transmitted or how Instagram uses it.
