We expose injustice. We’re independent and non-profit.

Privacy

CORRECT!V is a trademark of CORRECTIV – Recherchen für die Gesellschaft gGmbH.

We collect and process our members’ and donors’ personal data, including membership fees and donations, address, telephone number and email address. Fiscal law requires us to retain contact information as well as the sums of donations and membership fees.

We will not publish, sell, rent out or otherwise offer our donors’ and members’ personal data unless the donor or member has given us express permission, such as for publication in the donors’ list, or if we are legally required and permitted to do so.

Donors and members who have given us over €1000 in one year will be listed on our website.

If a donor or member who has given us less than €1000 in one year does not expressly permit the publication of their personal data, we will treat their data as confidential in accordance with German data protection law. Donors’ contact data is primarily used for the following purposes:

  • Sending donation receipts
  • Acknowledging and expressing gratitude for individual donations
  • Internal appraisal and bookkeeping
  • Notification of tax authorities under applicable law
  • To notify donors of changes in this directive

Transfer of personal data to third parties

We pass on certain tasks to external contractors (sending donation receipts and information) who may process personal data on our behalf for these ends. These service providers are contractually bound through PULS – Recherchen für die Gesellschaft gGmbH and are only permitted to use personal data that they receive in this context for the agreed purposes.
