Entering personal data

To use our website, it is generally not necessary for you to provide us with personal data, unless you would like to use certain offers from us such as the form for gift vouchers. In this case it is necessary that you provide certain data. The use of this service is expressly on a voluntary basis.

We only collect, use and, if necessary, pass on personal data if this is legally permitted. Under no circumstances will the data be transferred to areas outside the EU. Legal permission for such processing is based on Art. 6 of the EU General Data Protection Regulation because

the person concerned has given their consent to the processing of their personal data for one or more specific purposes;

the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures that take place at the request of the data subject;

the processing is necessary for the performance of a task that is in the public interest or takes place in the exercise of official authority that has been assigned to the person responsible


We use the reCAPTCHA service from Google Inc. (Google) to protect your inquiries via the Internet form. The query is used to differentiate whether the input is made by a human or improperly by automated, machine processing. The query includes the sending of the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha will not be merged with other Google data. The different data protection provisions of Google apply to this data. Further information on Google's data protection guidelines can be found at:

Electronic mail (email)

Information that you send to us unencrypted by electronic mail (e-mail) can possibly be read by third parties during transmission. As a rule, we also cannot verify your identity and we do not know who the real owner of an email address is. Legally secure communication by simple e-mail is therefore not guaranteed. Like many e-mail providers, we use filters against unwanted advertising (“SPAM filters”), which in some cases automatically classify and delete normal e-mails as unwanted advertising. E-mails that contain harmful programs (“viruses”) are always automatically deleted by us. If you want to send us sensitive messages, we recommend that you send the message to us by conventional mail.

Use of Google Maps

We use the "Google Maps" component from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google", on our website. Each time the "Google Maps" component is called up, Google sets a cookie in order to process user settings and data when the page on which the "Google Maps" component is integrated is displayed. As a rule, this cookie is not deleted when you close the browser, but expires after a certain period of time, unless you delete it manually beforehand.
If you do not agree to this processing of your data, you have the option of deactivating the "Google Maps" service and thereby preventing the transmission of data to Google. To do this, you have to deactivate the JavaScript function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you cannot use "Google Maps" or only to a limited extent.
"Google Maps" and the information obtained via "Google Maps" are used in accordance with the Google Terms of Use and the additional terms and conditions for "Google Maps" https: //

Social networks (Facebook)

We expressly point out that we have no knowledge of the scope and content of the data transmitted to the respective social networks or their processing and use by the respective social networks.

Legal basis for data protection

The Pilgrim Church Center applies the data protection regulation for religious orders under papal law (KDR-OG), because in this respect the religious communities and their associated legal entities have a right to self-administration of their own according to Art. 91 EU-DS-GVO, Art. 140 GG and Art.137 WRV Have affairs. In other legal transactions, the European General Data Protection Regulation applies with regard to data protection as it does for other legal entities.
