Purposes for which personal data is processed

The personal data will be processed to carry out the membership agreement (e.g., invitation to meetings, contribution membership fee).

In addition, personal data for participation in events at the Jewellery Museum will be forwarded to it.

Furthermore, personal data relating to events, including the reporting thereof, will be published on the website of the association, in performances of the association in social media and on the website of the Jewellery Museum and transmitted to local, regional and national print media.

For the purpose of self-promotion of the Förderverein Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim advertising will be sent to the e-mail address of the members.

Legal basis on which the processing takes place

The processing of personal data is usually based on the need to fulfill a contract in accordance with Article 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR. The contractual relationships are primarily the membership in the association.

If personal data is collected without the processing required to fulfil the contract, the processing is carried out on the basis of consent pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 lit. a), combined with Article 7 GDPR.

The legal basis for self-promotion is Art. 6 para. Lit. f) GDPR.

The publication of personal data on the Internet or in local, regional or national print media takes place in order to safeguard legitimate interests of the association (see Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR). The legitimate interest of the association is to inform the public by reporting on the activities of the association. In this context, personal data, including images of the participants, is published, for example, in the context of reporting on association events.

Recipients or categories of recipients of the personal data

The data of the members’ bank details is forwarded to Sparkasse Pforzheim Calw for the purpose of collecting fees.

Duration for which the personal data is stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining the duration
Personal data is stored for the duration of the membership.

Upon termination of the membership, the data categories will be retained according to the legal retention periods and then deleted. In the period between the termination of the membership and the deletion, the processing of this data is restricted.

Certain categories of data are stored in the club archive for the purpose of the association’s chronicle. The categories are as follows: first name, last name, participation in an event, or events in which the person concerned participated. Storage is based on the legitimate interest of the association the historical documentation of events and occurrences at said events to record.

All data within the remaining categories (e.g., bank details, address, contact details) will be deleted upon termination of membership.

Use of cookies

In order to give you a good experience when you visit our website and to enable you to make use of certain functions, we use so-called “cookies” on some pages. The legal basis for any processing of personal data with these cookies is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our interest in optimising our website by this means is legitimate within the meaning of that statutory provision. Cookies are small text files which are installed on your device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted at the end of your browser session, i.e. when you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Others remain on your device and enable us to recognise your browser when you visit our website again (persistent cookies). You can set your browser to let you know when cookies are going to be stored on your device, leaving you free to decide whether to accept them on a case-by-case basis, or to exclude cookie installation in specific cases or in general. If you decide not to accept cookies, some website functions may be restricted.

Following an objection from you, an opt-out cookie will be installed on your device. If you delete your cookies, you will need to click on the link again.
Google Analytics
In accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, we use Google Analytics – a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”) – to help us design and constantly optimise our web pages so as to best meet your needs. For this purpose, pseudonymised usage profiles are created and cookies are used. The information produced by the cookie about your use of this website, e.g.
browser type/version,
operating system in use,
referrer URL (last page/site visited),

is sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to analyse the use of the website, to produce reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website and Internet use in order to carry out market research and make sure that our web pages meet our customers’ needs. The data may also be supplied to third parties if this is required by law or if the third parties concerned process the data on our behalf. Your IP address will under no circumstances be linked to other Google data. The IP addresses collected are anonymised so that it is impossible to link them to individual users (IP masking).
You can prevent the installation of cookies at any time by changing the settings on your browser software. However, in that case it may not be possible for you to fully utilise all of this website’s functions. In addition, by downloading and installing this browser add-on, you can prevent the data produced by the cookie about your website use (including your IP address) from being collected and processed by Google. As an alternative to the browser add-on, in particular for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent data collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. This will install an opt-out cookie which will prevent any future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie, which is installed on your device, will only work on this browser and for our website. If you delete cookies on this browser, you will need to install the opt-out cookie again. You can find further information about Google Analytics and data protection on the Google Analytics website.

Google Web Fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts, provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. When a page is accessed, the browser loads the required web fonts into the browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
To do this, the browser used must connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If the browser used does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.
More information about Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Google Maps

This site uses the mapping service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the features of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is usually transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online services and easy access of the places we have indicated on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
For more information on how to handle user data, please refer to Google’s Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.


In addition to the aforementioned deactivation methods, you can prevent the use of the described targeting technologies in general by changing your browser’s cookie setting. You can also deactivate preference-based advertising using the preference manager, which you can access here.

Social media plug-ins

In accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, we use social plug-ins from the social media providers Facebook, Google+, Xing and YouTube in order to raise our company’s profile. This is a form of advertising which qualifies as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR. Each individual provider is responsible for ensuring that operation of the plug-ins complies with data protection regulations. We use the so-called two-click method for these plug-ins to ensure the best-possible protection for visitors to our website.

Our link offers you the possibility to connect to our website on Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA) by clicking on it.

With this function, your personal data will only be transmitted if you consciously click on this button. It is not a so-called “social plugin”, with the result that data exchange only takes place if you consciously use this function. Which data is processed by Facebook is beyond our influence.

Recipients outside of the EU

With the exception of the processing described under the headings of Internet technologies and Social media plug-ins, we do not supply your data to recipients registered outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area. The aforementioned processing entails the transmission of data to servers operated by the tracking/targeting technology providers used by us. These servers are located in the USA. Transmission takes place in accordance with the principles of the “privacy shield” and standard contract clauses formulated by the EU Commission.

Right to object

Subject to the conditions of Art. 21 (1) GDPR, the processing of data may be objected to on grounds arising out of the particular circumstances of the person affected.
The aforementioned general right to object applies to all of the purposes of processing in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR described in this data protection information. In contrast to the special right to object which applies in the case of data processing for advertising purposes, we are only obliged to implement such a general objection if you supply us with overriding reasons (e.g. possible danger to life or health). Another option for you is to contact the regulatory authority responsible for us or our data protection officer.

Data security

All data personally supplied by you, including your payment details, are transmitted by means of the generally used, safe SSL (Secure Socket Layer) standard. SSL is a secure, tried-and-tested standard which is also used, for example, in online banking. One method by which you can check for the safe SSL connection is to look for the “s” added to the “http” (thus “https://…”) in your browser’s address bar or a padlock symbol in the lower section of your browser window.
We also implement appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data stored by us against manipulation, partial or complete loss and unauthorised third-party access. These security measures are constantly improved in line with technological developments.
