Data protection concerning donations

Our website offers  the possibility to donate online. If a user takes advantage of this possibility, the data entered into the associated form will be transmitted to us and stored. The form is provided by the Bank für Sozialwirtschaft AG (“BFS”). The data entered is therefore passed on directly to BFS as well as the technical service providers used by the BFS to provide the form for executing the donation order with an encrypted SSL connection. This data is not transferred to other third parties. The following data is collected with the form:

Full name (last name, first name) with salutation (optional title and company name); address (street, house number, city, postal code, country); e-mail address; bank data (IBAN); donation data (donation recipient, amount, donation / purpose, donation receipt desired)
Additionally for donations using credit cards: Card type, card number, CVV / CVC verification number, credit card expiration date
If a donation receipt is required, we process the data in order to issue and send a corresponding donation receipt.
The data collected is necessary for the execution and implementation of the donation order. The user’s e-mail address is required to confirm receipt of the donation order. The data will not be used for any other purpose. The legal basis for processing the data is Article 6, Para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
At the moment the form is sent, the user’s IP address is also stored. We use the IP address to prevent misuse of the donation form. The IP address is used for the purpose of fraud prevention and to prevent unauthorised transactions to the detriment of third parties. The legal basis for processing the IP address is Article 6, Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose it was collected. For bank data, this is the case immediately after collection of the donation amount. The address data are stored after any desired creation and sending of a donation receipt and the same with all other data entered in the context of tax retention obligations, but locked for use for any other reason. The additional IP address collected during the sending process will be deleted at the latest after a period of seven days.
The user can object to the processing of the data at any time. However, it should be noted that in the event of an objection, the donation order can not be carried out as desired.
