    Some of the websites use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.


    Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.


    You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.


    Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you require (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for analyzing your surfing behavior) are stored, these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.


    The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:


This data will not be merged with other data sources.


This data is recorded on the basis of Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of his website - the server log files must be recorded for this.

7. Registration for the intranet on this website


Members of the Diversity Africa in Hanover e.V. can register on our website in order to use the functions of the intranet. We use the data entered for this purpose only for the purpose of using the respective offer or service for which you have registered. The mandatory information requested during registration must be given in full. Otherwise we will refuse the registration. For important changes, for example in the scope of the offer or for technically necessary changes, we use the e-mail address given during registration to inform you in this way. The processing of the data entered during registration is based on your consent (Art. 6 Abs. 1 lit. aDSGVO). You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal e-mail to us is sufficient for this. The legality of the data processing that has already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation. The data recorded during registration will be stored by us as long as you are registered on our website and will then be deleted. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.

Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

    Right to rectification

    There is a right to correction if the information concerning you is (no longer) correct. Incomplete data can be completed.

    Right to restriction of processing

    You have the right to request that the processing of your data be restricted, unless this is contrary to an important public interest (e.g. economic use of budget funds).


    Right to object

    You have the right to object to the processing of the relevant data for reasons that arise from your particular situation, unless an overriding public interest or a legal provision precludes this (e.g. implementation of the procurement procedure).


    Right to data portability

    In principle, you can "take" your data with you if it is needed by another body. However, this does not apply if your data is used for the performance of tasks in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority that has been assigned to the district government.


If you make use of your right of objection, the district government will no longer process your personal data unless it can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, Exercise or defense of legal claims (Art. 21 DSGVO).

If you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data violates the GDPR, you can contact the supervisory authority with a complaint (Art. 77 DSGVO). In Lower Saxony the responsible supervisory authority is: The State Commissioner for Data Protection Lower Saxony: Prinzenstrasse 5, 30159 Hanover (Die Landesbeauftragte für den Datenschutz Niedersachsen : Prinzenstraße 5, 30159 Hannover)
