We are very pleased about your interest in our organization. Data protection is particularly important for Afghanic.de. The use of the website of Afghanic e.V. is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to use special services of our company via our website, processing of personal data may be necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

3. Cookies

The websites of Afghanic e.V. use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and stored on a computer system via an internet browser.

Many 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 string by which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows the websites and servers visited 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 by the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, Afghanic e.V. can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the sense of the user. Cookies allow us to recognize the users of our website, as mentioned above. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-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, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

4. Collection of general data and information

The website Afghanic.de collects a series of general data and information with each call-up of the website by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The browser types and versions used (1) can be recorded, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (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 other data (8) other data , which are designed to prevent attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, Afghanic e.V. does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) to optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) to ensure the long-term functioning 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 evaluated statistically by Afghanic e.V. on the one hand and further with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

5. Possibility of contact via the website

Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller shall be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

6. Comment function in the blog on the website

Afghanic.de offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog located on the website of the controller. A blog is a portal, usually open to the public, on a website, in which one or more people called bloggers or web bloggers can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment in the blog published on this website, in addition to the comments left by the data subject, information on the time of the comment is entered and on the username (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject will be stored and published. In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons and in the event that the data subject violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content by making a comment. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the controller, so that the controller could, if necessary, exculplate himself in the event of an infringement. No personal data collected will be passed on to third parties unless such disclosure is required by law or serves the legal defense of the controller.

Further information on the Shariff component is available from the computer magazine c’t under http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldung/Datenschutz-und-Social-Media-Der-c-t-Shariff-ist-im-Einsatz-2470103.html. The purpose of using the Shariff component is to protect the personal data of visitors to our website and at the same time to enable us to integrate a button solution for social networks on this website.

14. Privacy Policy on the Use and Use of Twitter

The controller has integrated components of Twitter on this website. Twitter is a multilingual publicly available microblogging service where users can post and distribute so-called tweets, i.e. short messages limited to 280 characters. These short messages are available to everyone, including people who are not registered 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 allows a wide audience to be approached via hashtags, links or retweets.

Twitter operates Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

By each call-up of one of the individual pages of this website, 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 data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Twitter component to download a representation of the corresponding Twitter component of Twitter. More information on the Twitter buttons is available at https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons. As part of this technical procedure, Twitter becomes aware of which specific sub-page of our website is visited by the data subject. The purpose of the integration of the Twitter component is to enable our users to redistribute 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 with each call-up of our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website, which specific sub-page of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected by the Twitter component and assigned by Twitter to the respective Twitter account of the data subject. If the data subject activates one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transmitted with it will be assigned to the personal Twitter user account of the data subject and stored and processed by Twitter.

Twitter receives information via the Twitter component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged in to Twitter at the time of accessing our website; this occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Twitter component or not. If such a transmission of this information to Twitter is not wanted by the data subject, the data subject can prevent the transmission by logging out of his Twitter account before calling up our website.

Twitter’s current privacy policy is available at https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=de.

15. Payment method: Privacy policy on PayPal as payment method

The controller has integrated components from PayPal on this website. PayPal is an online payment service provider. Payments are processed via so-called PayPal accounts, which represent virtual private or business accounts. PayPal also allows you to make virtual payments via credit cards if a user does not have a PayPal account. A PayPal account is held via an email address, so there is no classic account number. PayPal makes it possible to trigger online payments to third parties or to receive payments. PayPal also assumes fiduciary functions and offers buyer protection services.

The European operating company of PayPal is PayPal (Europe) S.A.R.l. & Cie. S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, 2449 Luxembourg, Luxembourg.

If the data subject selects „PayPal“ as a payment option during the ordering process in our online shop, data of the data subject will be automatically transmitted to PayPal. By selecting this payment option, the data subject agrees to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing.

The personal data transmitted to PayPal is usually a first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number or other data necessary for payment processing. In order to process the purchase contract, it is also necessary to carry out personal data that are related to the respective order.

The purpose of the transfer of data is to process payments and to prevent fraud. The controller will transmit PayPal personal data in particular if there is a legitimate interest in the transfer. The personal data exchanged between PayPal and the controller may be transmitted by PayPal to business information agencies. The purpose of this transmission is to verify identity and creditworthiness.

PayPal may pass on the personal data to affiliated companies and service providers or subcontractors to the extent necessary to fulfil the contractual obligations or if the data is to be processed on behalf of the company.

The data subject has the possibility to revoke his consent to the handling of personal data to PayPal at any time. A revocation does not affect personal data that must be processed, used or transmitted for (contractual) payment processing.

The applicable PayPal privacy policy is available at https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full.

16. Legal basis for processing

Article 6 I lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for our company for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. Where 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, in the case of processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing shall be based on Article 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfilment of 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 to be injured and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third parties. The processing would then be based on Article 6 I lit. d GDPR.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is based on processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases where the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are allowed to do this kind of processing, in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be presumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

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

Based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest in carrying out our business for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR.

18. Duration for which the personal data will be stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of the period, the relevant data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer necessary for the performance of the contract or initiation of the 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 non-provisioning

We 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 on the contractual partner).
In some ways, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
Before providing personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies 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 what consequences the non-provision of the personal data would have.

20. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
