Data Protection Statement

We take the protection of personal data very seriously. We process personal data collected during a visit to the website in accordance with the data protection regulations in force. Your data is neither published nor communicated to third parties without authorisation by your explicit consent or statutory provisions. The following explains which data is recorded during your visit to the website and exactly how it is used.

  1. General information

    As a matter of principle, we only record and use users’ personal data to the extent necessary for the provision of an operational website and its contents and services. The users’ personal data are as a rule only recorded and used after the users have given their consent. An exception is made in those cases where statutory provisions permit the data to be processed.

    1. Legal basis

      We obtain the data subject’s consent to the processing of personal data. The legal basis for processing the data is Article 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter GDPR).

    2. Consent

      The data subject’s consent can be revoked at any time to the responsible entity:

      Viola Priesemann
      Am Faßberg 17
      37077 Göttingen
      E-Mail: info(at)

      Revocation does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent given until revocation.

    3. Purpose

      We only process the data for the sole purpose of publishing it on our website for our petition. Any data published on the website is freely available on the internet.

    4. Deletion

      All data is deleted after one year except for cases where statutory provisions require a longer storage period.

    5. Controller's contact details

  2. Provision of the website and creation of logfiles

    Whenever our website is accessed, our servers and applications record automated data and information from the accessing computer’s system.

    The following data is temporarily recorded:

    • Your IP address
    • Date and time of your access to the page
    • Address of the page accessed
    • Address of the website just visited (referrer)
    • Name and version of your browser/operating system (if communicated)

    The data are stored in our system logfiles. These data are not stored together with the user’s other personal data.

    The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the logfiles is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The data are stored in logfiles to ensure the operability of the website. In addition, the data help us to optimize the web pages, to eliminate faults and to ensure the security of our information system technology. These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in the data processing in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the Regulation.

    The data are deleted once they are no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were recorded. Where data are recorded in order to make the website available, they are deleted at the end of the session in question. Where the data are stored in logfiles, they are deleted at the latest after seven days. A longer storage is possible, but in this case users’ IP addresses are deleted or distorted so that the accessing client can no longer be identified.

    The recording of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in logfiles is essential for the operation of the website. Hence the user cannot object to this recording.

  3. Use of cookies

    Cookies are text files that are stored in or by the Internet browser on the user’s computer system. Our website does not use cookies.

  4. Data communication

    Your personal data will only be communicated to State institutions and authorities in the cases required by law and/or for the purpose of prosecuting offences due to attacks on our network infrastructure. Data will not be communicated to third parties for any other purpose.
