Privacy policy

We are pleased to welcome you to the website of CLAIM- Allianz gegen Islam- und Muslimfeindlichkeit and thank you for your interest. The protection of your personal data when using this website is very important to us. Your personal data is saved and processed in accordance with the data protection laws of Germany. Should you send us an inquiry via our website, the data you provide is expressly given to us on a voluntary basis. Your personal data is used to further process your inquiry and will be electronically saved and processed until we receive your withdrawal of consent.

Scope of application of the privacy policy

The legislator defines the processing of personal data as activities such as the collection, recording, organisation, ordering, storage, adjustment or alteration, reading, retrieval, usage, disclosure by transfer, distribution or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction of personal data.

Personal data is all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

What personal data do we process?

Your personal data is collected by us when you establish any contact with us. This can occur, for instance, when you subscribe to our newsletter or register for an event.

The following types of personal data are processed by us:

  • details concerning your personal identity (e.g. first and last name, date of birth, gender, address details, e-mail address, telephone number
  • data concerning your online behaviour (e.g. IP addresses, data concerning your visits to our website, actions displayed on our website, location from where the website is accessed)

Personal data of underage persons

Persons under the age of 16 may not transmit personal data to us without the consent of their parent or legal guardian.

For what purposes do we process personal data?


You have the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter via our website. In order to send the newsletter, we collect your e-mail address and your first and last name. Only after successfully completing a double opt-in will our newsletter be sent. You may, at any time, view your declaration of consent or unsubscribe from the newsletter. Corresponding links are embedded in each newsletter. Should you unsubscribe, we will immediately erase your contact details from our newsletter distribution list. The validity of your electronic consent, as applied when subscribing to our newsletter, is coupled with certain requirements put in place by the legislator. These include creating a record on your declaration of consent. We therefore record the date and time of your consent, the text contained in the declaration of consent, your e-mail address as well as your first and last name. We also record the date and time that you click on the Send button and the link contained in the confirmation e-mail. We collect and save these details solely in order to comply with the legal requirements concerning electronic consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). To send our newsletter, we use the Mailchip system, which is provided by

The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA

Invitation to events

When you register to participate in one of our events via our registration form, we process your personal data as part of the registration process and, where applicable, in order to contact you during the event. After you have participated in the event, we use your data to inform you about events and actions. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

Images and videos showing persons on the website

In order to show persons in images and videos, we have obtained a declaration of consent on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. There may be cases, however, where persons are shown for whom we have not previously obtained their consent. If you feel that this concerns you and you wish to object to the image or video, please contact us at

Creation of logfiles

The website provider automatically collects and saves information in so-called server logfiles, which your browser transmits to us automatically.

The following is the information concerned:

  • Browser type/Browser version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL through which the user has accessed the current website
  • host name of the computer accessing the site
  • time of the server inquiry
  • IP Address

This data is not assignable to specific persons. The data is not merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to review this data at a later date if we become aware of specific situations suggesting that our website has been used illegally. The legal basis for processing data in this instance is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

Use of cookies and plug-ins – what does this mean?

We link our website to our web presence on the following social media platforms: Facebook (Anti-Muslim Racism Day), Instagram, Soundcloud, YouTube, Vimeo and Twitter. Moreover, certain pages of our website incorporate videos from YouTube as well as image files from Flickr and Instagram. This always presupposes that the providers of such content (hereinafter referred to as „third-party providers“) detect the users‘ IP address, because, without the IP address, they would be unable to send the content to the browser of the user in question. The IP address is therefore required in order to display the content. We make every effort to ensure that only such content is used for which the respective provider uses the IP address only to deliver the content. However, we have no influence over whether the third-party providers save the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Should we become aware of this, we will notify  users accordingly. The personal data is processed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

If you are logged on to your own account with the corresponding third-party providers, it is possible that the providers will attribute information on your user behaviour to your personal user account on these platforms. You can prevent this from occurring by logging out of your user account. To learn about the purpose and scope of the data that is collected and how it is further processed and used by Facebook, Instagram, Soundcloud, YouTube, Twitter and Vimeo and about your corresponding rights and settings that you can make in order to protect your privacy, please consult the privacy notices posted on Facebook, Instagram, Soundcloud, YouTube, Twitter and Vimeo.

Our website also uses Google Analytics, a so-called web analysis service. Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are text files placed on your computer to help us analyse how users use our site. To this end, the user information generated by the cookie (including your truncated IP address) is transmitted to our server and saved in order to analyse usage of this website. This helps us optimise our website. During this process, your IP address is immediately anonymised to ensure that you remain an anonymous user. The information on your website use generated by the cookie is not forwarded to any third parties. You can deny cookie access by making the corresponding changes to your browser software settings. This may, however, result in you being unable to enjoy full use of all the features found on this website. The legal basis for placing Google Analytics cookies is Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

If you do not wish to consent to data being collected when visiting our site, you can object at any time to it being saved and used with just one click of the mouse. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie will be placed on your browser. This will result in Google Analytics being unable to collect any session data. Important: By deleting your cookies, you will also delete the opt-out cookie and may need to reactivate it.

By using this website, you consent to the data collected on you being processed by Google Analytics in the manner described above and for the aforementioned purpose.

Where do we transfer the data to and why

Data utilisation within Teilseiend

Within TEILSEIEND, only those departments which need access to your personal data in order to fulfil our contractual or legal duties or to protect our legitimate interests have access to your data.

Data utilisation outside Teilseiend

We respect the protection of your personal data and only transfer information about you when this is required by any legal provisions if you have given your consent, for the fulfilment of our contractual obligations, or in order to achieve our project goals.

In the case of the following recipients, there may be a legal obligation to transfer your personal data:

  • Public offices or supervisory authorities, e.g. tax authorities, customs authorities;
  • Judicial or criminal investigation authorities, e.g. police, courts, office of the public prosecutor;
  • Lawyers or notaries;
  • Auditors

In order to be able to fulfil our contractual obligations, we cooperate with other companies. These include:

  • Donors and public funding agencies
  • Project sponsors
  • Event organisers
  • Banks and financial service providers
  • Partner companies/funding partners
  • Service providers engaged to ensure the proper running of our business operations (e.g. IT service providers, printing and telecommunications service providers)

In order to ensure that the same legal data protection standards apply to our service providers as in our own enterprise, we have concluded corresponding third-party processing contracts. Among other things, these contracts provide

  • that third parties only gain access to data which they need to complete the tasks assigned to them;
  • that only those service provider employees explicitly obliged to comply with data protection laws have access to your data;
  • that service providers comply with technical and organisational measures which ensure data security and data protection;
  • for what happens to your data when the contractual relationship between the service provider and us ends.

In the case of service providers who have their registered office outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we ensure that the data is handled with the same level of care as within the EEA.

Deletion periods

In accordance with the applicable data protection regulations, we store your personal data for no longer than necessary in order to fulfil the purposes of the relevant processing. When data is no longer required for the fulfilment of contractual or statutory duties, we will regularly erase such data, unless it needs to be retained for a time-limited period. The time-limited retention of data may be required for the following reasons:

Adherence to commercial and/or taxation laws: the corresponding retention period is typically ten (10) years (cf. especially Sections 238 and 257 of the German Commercial Code (HGB) and Section 147 of the Fiscal Code of Germany (AO)).

Should the data be required in order to preserve evidence in the case of legal disputes, a legitimate interest in further retaining such data may exist within the scope of the statutory provisions governing the statute of limitations. (The standard statute of limitations for legal claims is three (3) years.)

Your rights

With respect to the processing of your personal data, you have certain rights under the provisions of the GDPR, which we have explained below. Further details can be obtained from the corresponding provisions of the GDPR (specifically Articles 15 to 21).

a) Right to information – Article 15 GDPR

You have the right to obtain information concerning how we process your personal data. If we have forwarded your data to third parties, we will inform you provided that you make a corresponding request.

b) Right to rectification – Article 16 GDPR

Under your right to rectification, you have the opportunity to require us to rectify inaccurate personal data concerning you.

c) Right to erasure – Article 17 GDPR

You have the right to require us to erase your personal data. The right to erasure applies if one of the following grounds is given:

  • if your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected;
  • if you withdraw your consent and there is no other legal basis for processing the data;
  • if you object to the processing;
  • if your data has been unlawfully processed; or
  • if your personal data needs to be erased in order to comply with the legal provisions.

Prior to erasing the data, we will, however, always first check whether circumstances apply that require us to continue storing and processing your personal data (for more information, see „Deletion periods“ above).

d) Right to restriction of processing – Article 18 GDPR

You have the right to require us to cease further processing your personal data for the time being, if one of the following grounds is given:

  • if you contest the accuracy of the data, until such time as we have had an opportunity to verify the accuracy of the data;
  • if the data is processed unlawfully and, instead of requiring us to erase the personal data, you ask us to restrict its use;
  • if we no longer need the personal data for the processing purposes, but you need it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
  • if you have objected to the processing and it is still unclear whether your legitimate interests override ours.

e) Right to data portability – Article 20 GDPR

With respect to the personal data that you have transmitted to us for processing, you have the right to receive, upon request, the data in a transmittable, machine-readable format in order to transmit it to another controller. Pursuant to Article 20(3), Sentence 2 GDPR, this right shall not apply if the data processing is necessary for the performance of tasks carried out in the public interest.

f) Right to object – Article 21 GDPR

Provided that the processing occurs in the public interest or on the basis of a weighing of interests, you have the right to object in writing to your data being processed. If you withdraw your consent to the processing of data or object to the use of the data, this will not affect the lawfulness of the data processing up to the time the objection is received. Should you object, we will only further process your personal data if we can prove that there are compelling reasons or legitimate interests which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or because your personal data serves the establishment, exercise or defence against legal claims. Please note that your objection will not apply for the past but for the future. Your objection can be provided informally and should be addressed to:

Depending on the frequency of the inquiries, it may take up to 30 days before we can inform you about your matter. Should it take longer, we will notify you in good time concerning the reasons for the delay and discuss the next steps with you.
