Processing of Personal Data

Ci3 e.V. processes personal data according to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

Personal data is individual information about the personal or material circumstances of a specific or specifiable natural person, including the name, address, email address and IP address, among others.

This Data Privacy Statement describes how we process your personal data. For the purpose of this website, your personal data is processed within the meaning of section 6 para. 1 sub. f GDPR; for the purpose of registrations/newsletter, your personal data is processed based on your approval according to section 6 para. 1 sub. a GDPR. As soon as your personal data is no longer needed for the intended purpose or the basis for processing has become obsolete, we delete the data while adhering to legal retention periods.

Please note that web-based data transfer is subject to security vulnerabilities making it impossible to fully protect the data from third-party access.


This website is hosted by 1&1 Internet SE, Elgendorfer Str. 57, 56410 Montabaur, Germany. For the purpose of using individual services of our website, it may be necessary to collect personal data as set out below.


This website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are placed and stored on your computer by your Internet browser. Cookies are used for technical reasons, for example in order to resume the session of a user when logging in and if the previous session was terminated by closing the browser. These cookies are not used to analyze the use of our website. The legal basis is provided in Article 6 (1) f) GDPR.

You may block the installation of cookies by adjusting the settings of your browser. Please be aware that you may not fully use all functions of our website if you block the installation of cookies

Server Data
When visiting the website, certain data including data sent by the browser (e.g. IP addresses, cookies, referring website, date and time, displayed content) is temporarily stored on the 1&1 web server.

This data is used to enable users to use the website. In addition, the data may be necessary to be able to investigate any claims or violations of legal stipulations, terms of use and third-party rights and enforce such rights.  The legal basis is provided in Article 6 (1) f) GDPR.

This anonymous data is stored separately from other personal data you may have provided and thus does not allow drawing conclusions on a specific person. It is evaluated for statistical purposes to optimize our online presence and services.

Registration Function

Our website features a registration function that allows you to register for events, among others. The data collected during the registration process and visible in the registration template (name, email address, organization, business address) is solely collected and stored for the purpose of using our services. The legal basis is provided in Article 6 (1) f) GDPR.

When you register on our site, we also store your IP address and the date and time of your registration.  We do this to protect us against any claims in case a third party abuses your data or registers on our website without your consent. None of this data is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information reconciled with the data third parties may have collected through other components of our site. We will keep the data you have entered into the form until you either request us to delete the data or withdraw your consent to data sharing, or if the purpose of data sharing does no longer exist.

When you sign up for our newsletter, we will save your email address and, where applicable, name, IP address, date and time of your registration. We do this to protect us against any claims in case a third party abuses your email address or signs up for our newsletter without your consent.  We do not collect any other data apart from the data mentioned above. The data we collect in this manner is used exclusively to provide you with our newsletter. None of this data is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information reconciled with the data third parties may have collected through other components of our site.
