Data protection

Information on data protection at DAHW

In order to carry out our worldwide work in the fight against diseases of poverty, we depend on your support. Transparency and trust are the cornerstones of our relationship with you as donors and supporters. We therefore consider it a matter of course to inform you in detail not only about our work and our statutory mission, but also about how we handle your data.

The issue of data protection is very close to our hearts. We collect data from you for the purpose of soliciting and administering donations. Data that pave the way for us to help the poorest people in the world. Data that we value highly and want to protect in the best possible way.

It is particularly important to us that you know when we store which information and how we use it. In order to be able to fulfill our mission, we process your data exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f) of the European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in part also with the support of service providers. You can find all the details in the text below.

Please do not hesitate to contact us in case of any questions. If you do not wish to receive further information about DAHW's work in the future, you can object to the use of your address at any time in writing or by e-mail (datenschutz(at) in accordance with Article 21 (2) (DSG-VO). Your personal data will then no longer be processed by us.

A heartfelt thank you for your trust!

Your data will be used within the framework of our statutory purposes (based on Art. 6 (1) f) and Art. 9 (2) d) DS-GVO) for information and education about neglected diseases, in particular leprosy and tuberculosis, for public relations, for the processing of donations (based on Art. 6 (1) b) and c) DS-GVO) and for raising the necessary funds , including through donations, honorary members, circles of friends and supporters, collections of all kinds (based on Art. 6 (1) f) and ErwG (47) DS-GVO). The legitimate interest arises here from the promotion of its own association purpose, the request for support for Leprosy and Tuberculosis Relief.

What happens to your data on the website?

When you submit data to (e.g. through orders, donations or inquiries), we ask for your name and other personal information. It is your free decision whether you enter this data.

For data stored before the entry into force of the GDPR, this review will take place for the first time at the end of 2018.

What rights do you have regarding your data?

You will receive information from us about the stored data and have the right to correct incorrect data, to restrict processing and the right to deletion, insofar as this does not conflict with a retention obligation. With regard to the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us, for example in an input mask or a contact form, on the basis of consent, you have the right to data portability in a structured, common and machine-readable format.

Provision requirement

The provision and processing of personal data is necessary on the one hand for the accounting of a donation in your name and the issuance of a donation receipt. Without the provision of the data, the accounting of a donation is not possible. Of course, you are not obliged to provide the data.

06) Data security with DAHW online donation

Is my data safe with DAHW?

We treat your personal data with utmost confidentiality and guarantee that it will not be shared with parties outside DAHW or Altruja GmbH. When you fill out the donation form, your data is electronically transmitted via an encrypted SSL connection. This enables secure communication between the web browser (=client) and the server. By using SSL, a communication channel is established between the web browser and the server that blocks third party intrusion. Once this connection is established, your sensitive information can be transferred without access by unauthorized persons.

By the way: you can also recognize a secure connection by the fact that "https" instead of "http" is displayed in the address line (URL). The "s" stands for secure. So you can be sure that your confidential direct debit data is transmitted securely.

07) Usage of etracker

This website uses the analysis service etracker. The provider is etracker GmbH, Erste Brunnenstraße 1, 20459 Hamburg, Germany.

The data can be used to create user profiles under a pseudonym. etracker uses technologies for this purpose that enable the recognition of the user (e.g. cookies or device fingerprinting). The data collected with the etracker technologies will not be used to personally identify visitors to this website without the separately granted consent of the person concerned and will not be merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym.

The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the anonymized analysis of user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising. If a corresponding consent was requested (e.g. consent to store cookies), the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.

You can prevent the collection by etracker, by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set, which will prevent the future collection of your data when visiting this website: deactivate tracking

08) Usage of Social-Plugins

DAHW has integrated plugins from social networks on these Internet pages. These are the networks „facebook“ (, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ) as well as „Youtube“ (, YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066 USA), „Twitter“ (, Zentrale, 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103 USA) and„Instagram” (, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, USA).

If you call up a page of our website that is provided with such a plugin, we try to ensure from the outset that your browser does not initially establish a direct connection to the servers of the corresponding networks. 

Facebook & Twitter: However, if you click on the corresponding tab on the home page or the preceding protection layer in the Press section, a connection will be established. The plugin is thus only displayed on the page by notifying your browser. The server of the social network then automatically receives the information which of our Internet pages you have visited, which video you have watched or which page you want to share. If you are a member of one of the social networks - and also logged in as such - it assigns the information to your personal user account and also stores this information when you use the plugin function. For example, if you click on the "Like" or "Tweet" button, personal data, including your IP address, will be stored. You can prevent this by logging out of the social network pages beforehand.

We have also provided the option on some of our pages to "share" them via social media, so-called share buttons (Facebook, Twitter). By actively clicking on these buttons, you create a contact to the corresponding social media websites. This in turn results in a forwarding of data to the operators of the social media sites.

Youtube: On some of our websites we embed YouTube videos. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. In the process, Youtube is told which pages you are visiting. If a Youtube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior.
For all videos, the so-called "extended data protection mode" is activated, which only forwards a minimum of data. Nevertheless, please note that if you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.
We are looking for technical ways to further minimize the collection of data. Please also note the use of cookies / prevent cookies.

The networks themselves provide more detailed information on data collection and processing and the corresponding rights and options for members in their privacy notices.

09) Usage of Google Web Fonts

We integrate fonts ("Google Fonts") of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. When you access pages of ours that contain Google Fonts, a connection is established between your device and Google's servers in the USA so that the fonts are displayed correctly on your device. The use of the fonts by us is done in order to make our website also appealing to you and is therefore our legitimate interest.

Google processes data relating to the use of Google Web Fonts exclusively for the effective use of the fonts. The data is not forwarded to other Google services. Against this background, there is no reason for us to assume here that interests worthy of protection of your person outweigh our legitimate interests in the processing of your data by cookies. The legal basis for the storage of the data obtained through cookies is therefore DSGVO-compliant (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f).

Use of third-party fonts

We embed fonts ("Icomoon Fonts") of the provider IcoMoon.Io via Amazon Web Services, Inc., 410 Terry Avenue North, Seattle WA 98109, United States.

When you access pages of ours that contain these fonts, a connection is established between your device and the servers of the aforementioned third-party providers in the United States so that the fonts are displayed correctly on your device. The use of the fonts by us is done in order to make our website also appealing to you and is therefore our legitimate interest.

The aforementioned third-party providers process data relating to the use of the aforementioned web fonts exclusively for the effective use of the fonts. A forwarding of the data to other services does not take place. The legal basis for the storage of the data obtained through cookies is thus DSGVO-compliant (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f).
