Privacy Policy

The German Red Cross Society (GRC) takes the protection of personal data very seriously. We would like you to know, what data we save, when and how we use that data. We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that the statutory regulations on data privacy and protection are observed both by us and by our external service providers. Compliance with applicable data protection law is subject to constant review by our Data Protection Officer.

Personal data

Personal data is information that relates to you as an individual. This includes details such as your real name, address, postal address, telephone number and email address. It does not include information that cannot be directly associated with your real identity (for example, time spent on the website or the number of users of the website).

Disclosure of personal information to third parties

Your personal data will only be processed within the GRC and associated companies. Other than that we do not disclose your data to third parties.

All personnel who process your data are obligated to comply with the Federal Data Protection Act, any other applicable statutory regulations and are bound by contract to the privacy policy of the GRC. However, we do pass on data to authorities that are entitled to receive the information, if we are required to do so by law or by a court order.

Right of objection to the use of data

However, in your capacity as the person affected you can object at any time to the use of your data in accordance with the data protection regulations. 

Under certain conditions you have a right to the correction, barring and deletion of the data stored by us. Please let us know about any concerns you may have, stating your full address, and write to: g.aubke(a) You have the right at any time to receive information about the data stored in relation to you personally, its origin, recipients and the purpose of the data processing.

Technical standards – secure transfer

Our measures are continually adapted to the state of the art whenever there are changes. Nevertheless, we draw attention to the fact that data protection for the transfer of data within the Internet cannot be comprehensively guaranteed with the present state of the art. Under certain circumstances other Internet users may be technically capable to interfere without authorisation in the network security and to control communication.

The online content provided by us contains links to other websites. We have no control over the compliance of the operators of those websites with the data protection regulations. We also have no influence whatsoever on the legality of the content of those websites. We therefore reject any responsibility whatsoever for the content of other websites.
