3. General notes and obligatory information
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the responsible office The responsible party for data processing on this website is: Kagyu Berlin Buddhistischer Verein e.V.
c/o Gründlich Verda Möckernkiez 22 10963 Berlin Phone: 0151 121 33 666 E-mail: email@example.com The controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
General information on the legal basis for data processing on this website
Note on data transfer to the USA and other third countries
Among other things, we use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that U.S. authorities (e.g. intelligence agencies) may process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on U.S. servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation..
Right to object to the collection of data in specific cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects shall have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.
Information, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction or deletion of this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. For this purpose, you can contact us at any time. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:
If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. If the processing of your personal data has happened/is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) of the GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – apart from its storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Our internet pages use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small data packets and do not cause any damage to your terminal device. They are stored either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your end device. Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself or until they are automatically deleted by your web browser.
In some cases, cookies from third-party companies may also be stored on your terminal device when you enter our site (third-party cookies). These enable us or you to use certain services of the third-party company (e.g. cookies for processing payment services). Cookies have various functions.

Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
Browser type and browser version Operating system used Referrer URL Host name of the accessing computer Time of the server request IP address This data is not merged with other data sources.
The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of its website – for this purpose, the server log files must be collected.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your data from the inquiry form including the contact data you provided there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b of GDPR, if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) of GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) Of GDPR) if this has been requested; the consent can be revoked at any time.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

7. plugins and tools
Google Fonts (local hosting)
This site uses so-called Google Fonts, which are provided by Google, for the uniform display of fonts. The Google Fonts are installed locally. A connection to Google servers does not take place.
This site uses the map service Google Maps. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission. If Google Maps is activated, Google may use Google Fonts for the purpose of uniform display of fonts. When calling up Google Maps, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and an easy location of the places indicated by us on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of GDPR. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of GDPR and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user’s terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG.

Data protection information for online meetings via “Zoom”
of the association Kagyu Berlin – Buddhistischer Verein e.V.
We would like to inform you below about the processing of personal data in connection with the use of “Zoom”.
Purpose of the processing
An order processing agreement (Global DataProcessing Addendum) exists with Zoom in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. https://zoom.us/docs/doc/Zoom_GLOBAL_DPA_December_19.pdf. In addition, EU standard data protection clauses have been concluded in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR. The meetings are hosted in the following regions: USA, Canada, Japan, Europe.
The controller for data processing directly related to the conduct of “online meetings” is Kagyu Berlin – Buddhist Association e.V.
Note: If you access the “Zoom” website, the provider of “Zoom” is responsible for data processing. However, accessing the website is only necessary for the use of “Zoom” in order to download the software for the use of “Zoom”.
You can also use “Zoom” if you enter the relevant meeting ID and any other access data for the meeting directly in the “Zoom” app.
If you do not want to or cannot use the “Zoom” app, the basic functions can also be used via a browser version, which you can also find on the “Zoom” website.
Which data is processed?
Various types of data are processed when you use “Zoom”. The scope of the data also depends on the data you provide before or when participating in an “online meeting”.
The following personal data is processed:
User details: first name, surname, telephone (optional, when dialing in by telephone), e-mail address, password (if “single sign-on” is not used), profile picture (optional)
Meeting metadata: Topic, description (optional), participant IP addresses, device/hardware information
For recordings (optional): MP4 file of all video, audio and presentation recordings, M4A file of all audio recordings, text file of the online meeting chat.
When dialing in by telephone: details of the incoming and outgoing telephone number, country name, start and end time. If necessary, further connection data such as the IP address of the device can be saved.
Text, audio and video data: You may have the option of using the chat, question or survey functions in an “online meeting”. In this respect, the text entries you make are processed in order to display them in the “online meeting” and, if necessary, to log them. In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your end device and from any video camera of the end device will be processed accordingly for the duration of the meeting. You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time via the “Zoom” applications.
To take part in an “online meeting” or enter the “meeting room”, you must at least enter your name.
We use “Zoom” to conduct “online meetings”. If we want to record “online meetings”, we will inform you transparently in advance and – if necessary – ask for your consent. The fact of the recording will also be displayed to you in the “Zoom” app.
If it is necessary for the purposes of logging the results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will not usually be the case.
In the case of webinars, we may also process the questions asked by webinar participants for the purposes of recording and following up webinars. If you are registered with “Zoom” as a user, reports on “online meetings” (meeting metadata, telephone dial-in data, questions and answers in webinars, survey function in webinars) can be stored for up to 12 months at „Zoom”.
Automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 GDPR is not used.
Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 of the GDPR. Here we are interested in the effective implementation of “online meetings”.
Recipients / disclosure of data
Personal data that is processed in connection with participation in “online meetings” will not be passed on to third parties unless it is intended to be passed on. Other recipients: The provider of “Zoom” necessarily receives knowledge of the above-mentioned data, insofar as this is provided for in our order processing contract with “Zoom”.
Data processing outside the European Union
“Zoom” is a service provided by a provider from the USA. Personal data is therefore also processed in a third country. We have concluded an order processing contract with the provider of “Zoom” that meets the requirements of Art. 28 GDPR.
An adequate level of data protection is guaranteed on the one hand by the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses. As additional protective measures, we have also set up our Zoom configuration in such a way that only data centers in the EU, the EEA or secure third countries such as Canada or Japan are used to conduct “online meetings“.
