Global Nature Fund (GNF) takes the protection of personal data very seriously.
Personal data is information such as name, address, telephone, email and other information necessary for the respective use, which can be assigned directly to a particular person. The handling of personal data is governed in particular by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
At all times, GNF ensures that the relevant data protection requirements are complied with and the statutory time limits for storage are met. We undertake the necessary technical and organisational measures to this end.
This information provides explanations about the nature and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider. They also explain the choices you have regarding the processing of your personal data and how you can contact us.

Right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR)

Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR)

You can object to the processing of personal data for advertising purposes including an analysis of customer data for advertising purposes at any time without reasons.
In addition, you as a person also have a general right to object (cf. Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR). In this case, the objection to data processing must be justified. If the data processing is based on a consent, your consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
The easiest way to assert your rights is to contact the address given in the imprint. In addition, you have the right of appeal to the data protection supervisory authority responsible for you.
III. Processing of personal data
As a rule, you can use our website without specifying personal data. If you would like to donate, contact us or use our information offers, you are asked to enter the necessary data for processing. We ask you, for example, for your name and for some other personal information relevant to the respective type of use. Mandatory information is marked as such. Your data are sent to us via an SSL-secured connection and are stored on specially protected servers in Germany. Access to the data is only possible by a few specially authorized persons who deal with the technical or commercial support of these servers or who are commissioned with internal work processes. These persons have been instructed about data protection law and are committed to data secrecy. In no case will your personal data be passed on to third parties without your express consent. When entering personal data, you will be informed about the use thereof, and you must consent to such use.
In addition, we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating via email) may have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible. Protected data should therefore only be transmitted via a secure connection.
In the following we would like to give you an overview of how we guarantee the protection of your personal data when you access our website and what types of personal data we process for what purposes and to what extent.
