We process personal data of our users only in compliance with the relevant data protection provisions in accordance with the principles of data economy and data avoidance.

An exception applies in those cases in which the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.
We take organizational, contractual and technical security measures in accordance with the state of the art to ensure that the provisions of data protection laws are complied with and thus to protect the data processed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons.
If content, tools or other means of third-party providers (e.g. YouTube videos) are used within the scope of our online offer and their named registered office is abroad, it is to be assumed that a data transfer to the registered office states of the third-party providers takes place.

PROTECTION TOOL SHARIFF
So-called “social plug-ins” are used on our websites. Currently these are especially
buttons of the services Facebook and Twitter. Via these plugins, data, including personal data, can be sent to the respective service providers (also outside Germany or Europe) and used by them if necessary. Facing Finance e.V. does not itself collect any personal data using the social plugins (described in more detail below) or about their use. In order to prevent data being transferred to service providers without the user’s knowledge, Facing Finance e.V. uses the so-called Shariff solution. This solution ensures that no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the individual social plug-ins when you visit our websites. Only when you click on one of the buttons of the social plugins can data be transferred to the service provider and saved there.
More information about the Shariff solution can be found
at http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html (in German)
This site uses social plugins (buttons) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
(“Facebook”). The plugins can be identified by one of the Facebook logos (e.g. white or blue “f” or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin” or “share on Facebook”.
When a user clicks such a button on a website of Facing Finance (this website), his
browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. The content of the
plugin is then transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated
into the website. Facing Finance e.V. therefore has no influence on the amount of
data Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore directs users to the following knowledge:
By clicking on the button, Facebook receives information that a user has called up
the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook
can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins,
for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding
information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to obtain and store their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of
the data by Facebook, as well as the relevant rights and setting options for the
protection of users’ privacy, can be found in Facebook’s data protection
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to use this offer to
collect data about him or her and link it to his or her membership data stored on
Facebook, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.
This offer uses the buttons of the social network Twitter, which is offered by Twitter Inc, 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They are
recognizable by terms such as “Twitter” or “sequence”, combined with a stylized
white or blue bird. With the help of the buttons it is possible to share a contribution or page of this website on Twitter or to follow Facing Finance e.V. or our campaign account on Twitter.
When a user clicks such a button on this website, his browser establishes a direct
connection to the Twitter servers. The content of the Twitter button is then
transmitted directly from Twitter to the user’s browser. Facing Finance e.V. therefore has no influence on the amount of data Twitter collects with the help of this plugin and informs users according to their level of knowledge. After this only the IP address of the user the URL of the respective web page is transmitted with the purchase of the Buttons, but not for other purposes, than the representation of the Buttons, used.
