We, the Jesus Gemeinde, represented by the Ölzweig e.V., thank you for visiting our homepage. As Jesus Gemeinde, the secure handling of your data is particularly important to us. We would therefore like to inform you in detail about the use of your data when visiting our website.
The data protection declaration of the Jesus Community is based on the terms used by the European Directive and Ordinance when issuing the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terminology used in advance.
a) personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
b) data subject
A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) controller or person responsible for the processing
The controller or controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union law or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union law or Member State law.
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the Controller.
A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not a third party. However, authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or Member State law are not considered recipients.
j) third party
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.
Consent means any freely given indication of the data subject’s wishes for a specific case in an informed and unambiguous manner, in the form of a statement or any other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
2. Data acquisition
The website of the Jesus Gemeinde collects a series of general data and information every time a data subject or automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded
- the browser types and versions used,
- the operating system used by the accessing system
- the website from which an accessing system arrives at our website (so-called referrer),
- the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
the date and time of an access to the Internet site,
- an Internet protocol address (IP address),
- the Internet service provider of the accessing system and
- other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, the Ölzweig e.V. does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is used to
- to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
- optimize the content of our website
- to ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and
- to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.
Therefore, the Ölzweig e.V. analyzes anonymously collected data and information on one hand for statistical purposes and on the other hand for the purpose of increasing the data protection and data security of our association/community, and ultimately ensuring an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.
3. Legal or contractual requirements to provide the personal data; necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We inform you that the provision of personal data is sometimes required by law (for example, tax regulations) or may also result from contractual provisions (for example, information about the contractual partner). Sometimes, in order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for a data subject to provide us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our association concludes a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact our data protection officer. Our data protection officer will inform the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what the consequences of not providing the personal data would be.
4. Use of data when subscribing to the email newsletter
On the website of the Jesus Gemeinde, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our association’s/our community’s newsletter. The personal data transmitted to the controller when the newsletter is subscribed to is specified in the input mask used for this purpose.
The Jesus Gemeinde informs the interested parties and members at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about developments within the association and projects, as well as events organized by the association. In principle, the newsletter of our congregation can only be received by the data subject if
- the data subject has a valid email address and
- the data subject registers for the newsletter mailing.
For legal reasons, a confirmation email is sent to the email address entered by a data subject for the first time for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail serves to verify whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject has authorized the receipt of the newsletter.
When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration, as assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP), as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of the data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later point in time and serves the legal safeguarding of the controller.
The personal data collected in the context of a registration for the newsletter will be used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a related registration, as could be the case in the event of a change to the newsletter offer or a change in the technical circumstances. No personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given us for the newsletter dispatch, can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking consent, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter. Furthermore, it is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter mailing directly on the website of the controller at any time or to inform the controller of this in another way.
5. Contact options via the website
Based on statutory provisions, the website of the Jesus Gemeinde contains data that enable a quick electronic communication to our association/our congregation, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or by using a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. No disclosure of this personal data to third parties will take place.
6. Data use when registering via a ChurchTools form
On the website of the Jesus Gemeinde, users are given the opportunity to register for a group in our database management tool ChurchTools using a registration form. Which personal data is transmitted to the controller when registering for a group, results from the input mask used for this purpose. Registration takes place by means of double opt in via the e-mail address in order to prevent misuse of e-mail addresses.
The leader and other authorized employees of the group will send the participant information about participation in the group and other group-specific messages. At the same time, depending on the group for which he/she has registered, the person will be listed either with the status of Event Guest or with the status of Visitor to our community. As a visitor, he or she will receive messages that concern the entire community. For technical reasons, the status cannot be deleted independently of the group membership.
Deletion of the data takes place either a few months after the end of the event, if the person has received the status event guest. If the person has been given Visitor status, it will be deleted a few months after participation in the group has ended, provided that in the meantime he or she has neither become a community member nor part of another group or service and also does not respond to the corresponding referral to another group or deliberately refuses it.
Irrespective of this, the person in question naturally has the right to revoke consent to the processing of the data, in which case the data will also be deleted.

The IP address is transmitted in the case of YouTube to Google Inc, 600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) and in the case of Vimeo to Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York 10011.
9. Notification of changes
In the event of such a change, we will inform you of this no later than six weeks before it comes into effect. You generally have a right of revocation with regard to the consent you have given.
10. Updating/deleting your personal data
At any time, you have the option to review, change or delete the personal information you have provided to us by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a member with us, you can also opt out of receiving further information there for the future.
Likewise, you have the right to revoke once granted consent with effect for the future at any time.
The deletion of stored personal data takes place when you revoke your consent to storage.
The controller processes and stores personal data of the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for by the European Directive and Regulation or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.
If the storage purpose ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Maker or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.
11. Rights of data subjects
Every data subject has the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, to obtain confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning him or her are being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or another employee of the controller.
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain at any time from the controller, free of charge, information about personal data concerning him or her, and a copy of such information. Furthermore, the European Directive and Regulation has granted the data subject access to the following information:

- the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information about the logic involved and the scope and intended effects of such processing for the data subject
Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right to obtain information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organization. If this is the case, the data subject also has the right to obtain information about the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller.
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to request the immediate rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Furthermore, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data – also by means of a supplementary declaration – taking into account the purposes of the processing.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectify, he or she may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer or another employee of the controller.
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation, to obtain from the controller the erasure without delay of personal data concerning him or her, where one of the following reasons applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary:
- The personal data were collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which they are no longer necessary.
- The data subject revokes his or her consent on which the processing was based Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO or Art. 9 (2) (a) DSGVO and there is no other legal basis Ilir the processing.
- the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Art, 21 (1) and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Art, 21 (2).
- The personal data have been processed unlawfully.
- The erasure of the personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
- The personal data has been collected in relation to information society services offered pursuant to Article 8(I) of the GDPR.
If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to arrange for the erasure of personal data stored by the Ölzweig e.V., he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller. The data protection officer of the Ölzweig e.V. or another employee shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.
If the Ölzweig e.V. has made the personal data public and our association as the controller is required to delete the personal data pursuant to Article 17 (I) of the Data Protection Regulation, the Ölzweig e.V. shall implement reasonable measures, including technical measures, to ensure that other data controllers process the published personal data, taking into account the available technology and the cost of implementation. to provide notice that the data subject has requested from these other data controllers the erasure of all links to the personal data or copies or replications of the personal data, unless the processing is necessary. The Data Protection Officer of the Ölzweig e.V. or another employee will arrange the necessary in individual cases.
Each data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, to obtain from the controller the restriction of the processing if one of the following conditions is met:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
- The processing is unlawful, the data subject objects to the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of the use of the personal data.
- The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
- The data subject has objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.
If one of the aforementioned conditions is met, and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by the Ölzweig e.V., he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller. The data protection officer of the Ölzweig e.V. or another employee will arrange the restriction of the processing.
Each data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, to obtain personal data concerning him or her, which has been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she also has the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data were provided, provided that the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR and the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, when exercising the right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller where technically feasible and provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other individuals.
In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact the data protection officer appointed by the Ölzweig e.V. or another employee.
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to object at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the Data Protection Regulation. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The Ölzweig e.V. shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the Ölzweig e.V. processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data processed for such marketing. This also applies to the profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the Ölzweig e.V. to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the Ölzweig e.V. will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her which is carried out by the Ölzweig e.V. for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may directly contact the Data Protection Officer of the Ölzweig e.V. or another employee. The data subject is also free to exercise his/her right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC.
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right, granted by the European Directive and the Regulation, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her or similarly significantly affects him or her, where such decision
- is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or

- is carried out with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision is
- necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or
- it takes place with the express consent of the data subject,
Ölzweig e.V. shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, which include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a data subject, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated decisions, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller.
Any data subject concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European Directive and Regulation to withdraw his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact our data protection officer or another employee of the controller.
12. Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO serves our association as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for a delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 (1) (b) DSGVO. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our association is subject to a legal obligation by which a processing of personal data becomes necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. c DSGVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured at an event of our association/community and as a result his or her name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In that case, the processing would be based on Art. 6(1)(d) DSGVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our association or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overridden. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, sentence 2 of the GDPR).
13. Legitimate interests in the processing pursued by the controller or a third party
If the processing of personal data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO, our legitimate interest is the performance of our association activities in accordance with the objectives and purposes set out in our Articles of Association for the benefit of the well-being of all our association members, our parishioners and all guests of events of our parish.
