We are very pleased about your interest in our non-profit association. Data protection is particularly important to us. The use of the Internet pages of Socialis for The Gambia e.V. is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services of our association via our website, processing of personal data may become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the Socialis for The Gambia e.V.. By means of this data protection declaration, our association would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, data subjects will be informed of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.
Socialis for The Gambia e.V. has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:
a) Personal data
Personal data are all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter „data subject“). Identifiable is a natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special characteristics that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
b) Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing means any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures in relation to personal data, such as the collection, collection, organisation, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, reading, retrieval, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, reconciliation or linking, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of restricting their future processing.
Profiling is any form of automated processing of personal data consisting in the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the performance of work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or relocation of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data are not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
The data controller or controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, institution or other body which alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are laid down by Union law or by the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his appointment may be laid down in accordance with Union law or the law of the Member States.
h) Contract processors
Processor is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that processes personal data on behalf of the data controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities which may receive personal data under Union law or the law of the Member States within the framework of a particular investigation mandate shall not be regarded as recipients.
j) Third parties
A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body other than the data subject, the data processor, the data processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the data processor or the data processor.
Consent shall mean any informed and unequivocal expression of will voluntarily given by the data subject in the particular case in the form of a declaration or other clear affirmative act by which the data subject indicates his or her consent to the processing of personal data concerning him or her.

5. COLLECTION OF GENERAL DATA AND INFORMATION
The Socialis for The Gambia e.V. website collects a series of general data and information each time a person or an automated system accesses the website. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. We may record (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrer), (4) the subwebsites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of access to the Website, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service providers of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information used for security purposes in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
Socialis for The Gambia e.V. does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned when using this general data and information. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimize the contents of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. These anonymously collected data and information are therefore evaluated by Socialis for The Gambia e.V. statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our association in order ultimately to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.
6. CONTACT VIA THE WEBSITE

If one of the above conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by Socialis for The Gambia e.V., he/she may contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of Socialis for The Gambia e.V. will cause the restriction of the processing.
f) Right to data transferability
Any data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to receive personal data relating to him/her provided by the data subject to a data controller in a structured, current and machine-readable format. It shall also have the right to transmit such data to another data controller without obstruction by the controller to whom the personal data have been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent provided for in Article 6(1)(a) DS GMO or Article 9(2)(a) DS GMO or on a contract in accordance with Article 6(1)(b) DS GMO and that the processing is carried out using automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority conferred on the data controller.
Furthermore, in exercising his right to data transferability pursuant to Article 20(1) DS-GMO, the data subject has the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly by a data controller to another data controller, provided this is technically feasible and provided that the rights and freedoms of other persons are not affected thereby.

This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising.

h) Automated decisions in individual cases including profiling
Any person data subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect against him or significantly affects him in a similar manner, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller, or (2) is admissible under Union or Member State law to which the data controller is subject and that such law contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) with the express consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the data controller or (2) is made with the express consent of the data subject, Socialis for The Gambia e.V. takes appropriate measures to protect the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the data controller, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.

i) Right to revoke consent under data protection law
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the European legislator of directives and regulations to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise his/her right to withdraw his/her consent, he/she may contact an employee of the controller at any time.
9. DATA PROTECTION FOR APPLICATIONS AND IN THE APPLICATION PROCEDURE
The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends corresponding application documents to the controller by electronic means, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the decision of refusal, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller stand in the way of deletion. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
To maintain our online presence, we use an Internet service provider on whose server the website is stored (hosting) and who makes our website available on the Internet. The Internet service provider processes contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, inventory data as well as meta and communication data on our behalf. Legal basis: The legal basis for the aforementioned processing is our legitimate interest in an efficient and secure provision of our online offer, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO in conjunction with Art. 28 DSGVO (order processing contract).
If you use our website for information purposes only, our Internet service provider will only collect the personal data that the browser you are using transmits to its server. This is the following data:
– IP address
– the date and time of access to our website
– Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
– Access status (HTTP status)
– the amount of data transferred
– the Internet service provider of the accessing system
– the type of browser you are using and its version
– the operating system you are using
– the website from which you may have accessed our website
– the pages or sub-pages which you visit on our website.
The aforementioned data is stored as log files on the servers of our Internet service provider. This is necessary to display the website on the device you are using and to ensure stability and security. Our legitimate interest in data processing lies in the
above purposes. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. The above data for the provision of our website will be stored for a period of 7 days and then deleted. Since the processing of the above data is absolutely necessary for the provision of our Internet presence, there is no right of objection.
We use third party services such as plugins or APIs (Application Programming Interface) on our website to extend the functionality of our website. Data may be transferred to the provider of these services. In detail we use the following services:
Our website uses services of Google LLC („Google“), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google complies with the requirements of the „EU Privacy Shield“. The Privacy Shield Agreement regulates the protection of personal data transferred from a member state of the European Union to the USA. It shall ensure that the data transmitted there is also subject to a level of data protection comparable to that of the European Union. The list of certified companies is available here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/list. You can find more information on the handling of user data in Google‘s data protection declaration: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
a) Google APIs
Our website uses „Google APIs“ from Google. This service allows us to extend our website through the external integration of code frameworks. The required frameworks are usually requested from a Google server in the USA. This request transfers the following information to the Google server and stores it there: The one of our Internet pages that you have visited and the IP address of your terminal. The legal basis for the processing of your data in relation to the „Google APIs“ service is Art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing). The legitimate interest arises from our need for an attractive and uniform presentation of our online offer and for a technically flawless and fast presentation of our website.
b) Google Fonts
Our website uses the external font service „Google Fonts“ from Google. This service enables us to present our website in a uniform and attractive manner, even on user devices with very different configurations, by loading fonts from an external server instead of the user‘s device. The required fonts are usually requested from a Google server in the USA. This request transfers the following information to the Google server and stores it there: The one of our Internet pages that you have visited and the IP address of your terminal. The legal basis for the processing of your data in relation to the „Google Fonts“ service is Art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 letter f) DSGVO (legitimate interest in data processing). The legitimate interest arises from our need for an attractive and uniform presentation of our online offering.
We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms, offered by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland, to communicate with active customers, prospects and users and to inform them about our services there.
We would like to point out that user data can be processed outside the European Union. This can pose risks for users because, for example, the enforcement of users‘ rights could be made more difficult. With regard to US providers that are certified under the privacy shield, we would like to point out that they are thus committed to complying with EU data protection standards.
Furthermore, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, user profiles can be created from the user behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the user‘s computer, in which the user‘s usage behavior and interests are stored. Furthermore, data can also be stored in the user profiles independently of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to these).
The processing of users‘ personal data is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in effective user information and communication with users pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of objection (opt-out), we refer to the Facebook information linked below.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the provider. Only the provider has access to the users‘ data and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, you can contact us.

On the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) Social Plugins („Plugins“) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland („Facebook“). This may include, for example, content such as images, videos or texts and buttons with which users can share content from this online offer within Facebook. The list and appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law.
When a user calls up a function of this online offer that contains such a plugin, his device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the user‘s device and integrated into the online offer. The processed data can be used to create user profiles. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore inform users according to our level of knowledge.
