General information for data processing

Legal basis: EU – General Data Protection Regulation GDPR

1. Making contact – handling contact data
If you contact us as operator of the internet site via the offered opportunities for contact (e.g. by e-mail, telephone or via social media), you provide us with your consent to store your personal data so that we may access these for the processing and answering of your request. Without your consent we will not disclose your personal data to any third parties. The personal data will be processed and stored in our head office in Switzerland (address see above). We will delete your personal data if it is no longer necessary.

We explicitly point out that data transmission in the Internet (e.g. by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data from third party access is not possible. The use by third parties of the contact data published within the scope of our statutory legal notice obligations for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby expressly forbidden. Excepted from this are existing relationships or when our corresponding consent is provided. The operators and any third parties mentioned on this website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising or information materials. The same applies to the commercial use or distribution of data.

2. Scope of personal data processing
We process personal data of our users in principle only in so far as this is required for the provision of a functional website as well as for our content and services.

3. Data deletion and storage duration
The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted immediately, as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply or the person requests this in writing. Data, bound by legal regulations to a storage duration, e.g. banking information of donors on our donation accounts will not be deleted until the legal storage period has expired.

4. Withdrawal option
The user will at any time have the opportunity to revoke his consent to the storing and processing of personal data. In such a case the conversation cannot be continued. A withdrawal of your consent to the storing and processing of your personal data can be sent to us at any time by e-mail or post:

E-mail: nch@neuchristen.com

Alle personenbezogenen Daten, die im Zuge der Kontaktaufnahme gespeichert wurden, werden in diesem Fall gelöscht (ausser es liegt eine gesetzliche Speicherfrist vor, siehe Punkt 3).

 

Your rights as person concerned

As user of our websites, the GDPR grants you certain rights when processing your personal data:

1. Right of access
You have the right to demand a confirmation whether the personal data concerning you is processed. If this is the case, you are entitled to obtain information regarding these personal data. For data protection reasons, this information will only be given upon written request (with original handwritten signature) and will likewise only be sent in the form of a letter.

2. Right of correction, restriction and deletion
You have the right to demand the immediate correction of
inaccurate personal data concerning you, the restriction of the same or, if applicable, to have incomplete personal data completed.

You also have the right to demand a deletion of the personal data concerning you without undue delay, provided we are not bound by legal obligations to store the data.

3. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you consider that the processing of the data concerning you infringes data protection regulations.

 

Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing
Each time our website is visited, our system automatically records data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer.

  • Information on the browser type and the version used
  • The user’s operating system
  • The user’s internet service provider
  • The user’s IP address
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites from which the user’s system reaches our website
  • Websites that are accessed by the user’s system via our website

The data will also be stored in the log files of our system. This data will not be stored together with other personal data of the user.

2. Purpose of data processing
Temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable provision of the website for the user’s computer. For this purpose the user’s IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

Storage in log files is carried out to ensure the functionality of the website. Furthermore, the data allows us to optimise the website and to guarantee the security of our Information Technology systems. Data analysis for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

3. Duration of storage
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was obtained. In the case of data collection for the provision of the website, this applies at the end of the respective session.

When data is stored in log files, this is the case after three days at the latest. Storage beyond this is possible. In this case, the users’ IP addresses are deleted or scrambled so that assignment of the accessing client is no longer possible.

4. Option for objection and elimination
Recording of data for provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is absolutely necessary for operation of the website. Therefore, the user has no right of objection.

 

Use of Cookies

1. Description and scope of data processing
Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored in the user’s Internet browser or on the user’s computer system by the Internet browser. If a user accesses a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic character string which enables unique identification of the browser the next time the website is called up.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require the accessing browser to also be identifiable after a page change. Some cookies used by us are deleted again at the end of your browser session after your browser has been closed (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your PC and enable us to identify your browser at your next visit (persistent cookies).

At the same time, the following data is stored and transferred in the cookies:

  • Date and time of access
  • A unique number / letter combination for the recognition of your browser
  • A cookie name that can explicitly be assigned to the accessed Internet site
  • Information on the storage duration of cookies

Cookies are stored in encrypted form and cannot be read by third parties who can access the cookie folder of your browser. Only the server/the website who created the cookie can decrypt and read it.

2. Purpose of data processing
The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for the users. Please note that some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. These functions require that the browser can be recognised even after a page change.

3. Duration of storage, option for objection and elimination
Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transferred from there to our website. Therefore, as a user you also have full control over the use of cookies. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your Internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the Internet site to their full extent.

 

Web analysis by Matomo (formerly PIWIK)

1. Scope of the processing of personal data
We use the Open-Source-Software-Tool Matomo (previously known as PIWIK) on our website to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. The software places a cookie on the user’s computer (see above for cookies). If individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data is stored:

  • Two bytes of the IP address of the user’s accessing system
  • The accessed website
  • The website from which the user has reached the accessed website (referrer)
  • The sub-pages accessed from the accessed website
  • The time spent on the website
  • The frequency with which the website is accessed

In the process, the software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. The personal data of users is stored only there and will not be forwarded to third parties.

The software is set so that the IP addresses are not completely stored, but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g.: 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, it is no longer possible to assign the shortened IP address to the accessing computer.

2. Purpose of data processing
The processing of the personal user data enables us to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. Evaluating the resulting data enables us to compile information on the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its user-friendliness. These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in the processing of the data. The interests of the users with regard to the protection of their personal data are sufficiently taken into account through the anonymisation of the IP address.

3. Duration of storage
The data will be deleted once it is no longer required for the purpose for which it was stored.

4. Option for objection and elimination
Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transferred from there to our website. Therefore, as a user you also have full control over the use of cookies. You can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your Internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the Internet site to their full extent.
