2. When does the Tannenhof Foundation collect data about you?
2.1. Visit of the website (access data)

We collect data to a very limited extent. You can visit our website without providing any personal information. We only store technical access data in so-called server log files, such as date and time of access, transferred data volume and the requesting provider. This data is evaluated exclusively to ensure the trouble-free operation of the site and to improve our offer and does not allow us to draw any conclusions about your person.

The following personal data will be processed by you:

  • IP address of the requesting device
  • Date and time of the request
  • Address of the accessed website and the requesting website
  • Information about the browser and operating system used
  • Access status/http status code
  • Amount of data transferred in each case
  • Website from which the access takes place (referrer URL),
  • the browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer, language and version of the browser software and the name of your access provider

The data processing of this access data is necessary to enable the visit of the website and to guarantee the permanent functionality and security of our systems. For the purposes described above, the access data is also temporarily stored in internal log files in order to generate statistical data on the use of our website, to further develop our website with regard to the usage habits of our visitors (e.g. if the proportion of mobile devices used to access the pages increases) and for general administrative maintenance of our website. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR.

2.2. When you contact us

You have different possibilities to get in contact with us. These include contacting us by e-mail and telephone. In the course of contacting us, the following personal data is usually processed:

  • name, first name
  • Phone number
  • e-mail address
  • Request

In this context we process data exclusively for the purpose of communicating with you. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. The data collected by us in the course of contacting you will be automatically deleted after your inquiry has been completely processed, unless we still need your inquiry to fulfill contractual or legal obligations (see section “When will your data be deleted?”).

2. Transfer of your data

If a third party is responsible for the operation of this website or the provision of services by a service provider (hosting provider), these companies will only have access to your data to the extent necessary to fulfill their respective tasks and functions.

If these service providers process your data outside the European Union, this may result in your data being transferred to a country that does not offer the same data protection standards as the European Union. In this case, we will ensure that the respective recipients of your data guarantee, by contract or otherwise, a level of data protection equivalent to that of the European Union.

3. When will your data be deleted?

After complete processing of your request (contacting us) or termination of your visit to our website, your data will be blocked for further use and deleted after expiry of the tax and commercial law retention periods, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use your data in a way that goes beyond this, which is permitted by law and which is described in this data protection declaration. The deletion of your personal data is possible at any time and can be done either by sending an informal message to the above mentioned contact option.

4. What data protection rights do you have?

You have a right of information (Art. 15 DSGVO), of correction (Art. 16 DSGVO), of deletion (Art. 17 DSGVO), of restriction of processing (Art. 18 DSGVO) as well as of data transferability (Art. 20 DSGVO) with respect to the Tannenhof Foundation under the respective legal requirements. You also have the right of appeal to a data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 DSGVO).

If you have given us your consent, you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future.

If we process your data on the basis of a weighing of interests, you can object to the processing. If you object, your data will no longer be processed unless the company responsible can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If you wish to exercise your right of revocation or objection, simply send an e-mail to

5. What technical measures have we taken?

We use the common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure within the website visit in connection with the highest encryption level supported by your browser. Usually this is a 256 bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is being transmitted in encrypted form by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.

We also use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
