Personal Data

Personal information such as, for example, your name, position or email address, will not be automatically collected by us unless you provide us with this information yourself, for example, over the course of supporting and signing the Declaration of the Many. We use any data you have provided us with exclusively for the purpose for which you gave it to us.

Standard Data

When you visit our Internet site, our web server generally does not record your complete IP address and the domain name of the computer used. The server has been configured so that an automatic logging of information that is required for individual identification does not take place. As a result, no personal data or data that can be attributed to an individual exists on our server. IP addresses are stored for a maximum of 60 days. This data is stored solely for the purpose of securing the information technology systems used. IP addresses are only used when facts justify the suspicion that unauthorized third parties are seeking to access our IT systems and/or would like to negatively influence the operation of our Internet site. In this manner, we are able to protect ourselves against hacking/cracking and other forms of negative influencing (e.g. denial of service attacks, et cetera). Upon the deletion of the IP address, at the latest, we are no longer able to identify individuals from the remaining data.

Supporting the Declaration of the Many

Personal data, as explained in detail above, is collected and stored over the course of supporting the Declaration of the Many. We need this data in order to process and allocate the supporters. Your data will be stored for an unspecified amount of time in order to form an archive of all supporters. This affects all data that is forwarded to us via email. If you send us your support in the form of an email, we send you a confirmation link. If you confirm this email using the link provided, you become a confirmed supporter. You are recognized as a confirmed supporter via a cookie. Only your name, position and place of residence are publicly visible on this website, within the Declaration of the Many and for search engines. As a confirmed user, you can revoke permission for the visibility of your signature at any time (see below).
