Data protection declaration / duty to provide information according to § 5 TMG & Art. 13/14 GDPR
At ENFSI e.V., we believe the protection of personal data involves far more than just complying with legislation. We are therefore happy that you are interested in how we handle personal data.
We always process personal data such as a person’s name, address, e-mail address, or phone number in accordance with applicable privacy law.
With this privacy notice, we would like to inform everyone about the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data that we collect, use, and process. Furthermore, we would like to explain to the persons concerned the rights to which they are entitled.
ENFSI e.V. has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this Web site is protected as comprehensively as possible.
Despite the care we take, Internet-based data transmission is vulnerable to security flaws and, consequently, absolute protection can never be guaranteed. For this reason, you of course have the option of transmitting your personal data by alternative means, for example, by telephone or post.

The data controller has integrated Google Maps on this website.
Google Maps (API) is a web service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) to display interactive (land) maps for visual representation of geographical information. By using this service, visitors to the website are shown the company’s location and any directions are made easier.
Information about the use of the respective website (such as the IP address) is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA as soon as the sub-pages into which the Google Maps map is integrated are accessed. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which the person concerned is logged in, or whether no user account exists. If the person concerned is logged in to Google, their data will be assigned directly to their account. If this assignment is not desired, the person concerned must log out before activating the button. Google saves the data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. The data transmission takes place in particular according to art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR based on your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time via your cookie settings on our website or via your browser. Furthermore, you have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.
Google LLC, based in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.
Data Protection Provisions for the Use of Google Fonts
The controller has integrated Google Fonts into this Web site. Google provides free fonts that can be used when designing Web sites. Google Fonts was installed locally. A transfer of data does not take place. Only if you give your consent (GDPR art. 6(1)(a)) for Google Maps, Google Fonts will be automatically included for the display of Google Maps.
So that fonts for Google Maps can be displayed consistently, this Website uses Web fonts that are provided by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). When visiting a page on our Web site, the data subject’s browser loads the required Web fonts into its cache so that it can display text and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser used by the data subject must establish a connection with Google’s servers. This process informs Google of the corresponding page being visited from the data subject’s IP address. If the data subject’s browser does not support Web fonts, the data subject’s computer will use a default font.
Google LLC., based in the United States, has been certified for the purposes of the U.S.-EU “Privacy Shield” data protection framework, which ensures compliance with the level of privacy required in the EU.
