Our cookie policy

1. General

The Refugee Law Clinic eV takes the protection of personal data very seriously. On this page we inform you which personal data is processed when using this website and its offers and for what purposes this data is used.

2. Cookie Policy

2.1 Introduction

Our website, (hereinafter: "the website") uses cookies and other technologies (for the sake of simplicity hereinafter generally referred to as cookies) so that our website runs reliably and securely. Cookies are also placed by third parties commissioned by us. In this document we inform you about the use of cookies on our website.

2.2 What are cookies?

A cookie is a simple small file that is sent together with the pages of an Internet address and can be saved by the web browser on the PC or other device. As soon as you visit our website or use another service provided by Refugee Law Clinic Berlin eV, cookies are collected and stored. The information stored therein can be sent to our servers or those of relevant third-party providers during subsequent visits.

2.3 Consent

When you visit our website for the first time, you will see a popup with an explanation of our cookies. As soon as you click on "I agree", you agree that we will use all cookies and plug-ins that are described in the popup and in this cookie statement. You can deactivate the use of cookies via your browser. Please note, however, that our website may no longer function properly.

3. Cookies

3.1 Necessary cookies

Some technically necessary cookies ensure that parts of our website function properly and that your user preferences are known. By placing functional cookies, we enable you to visit our website. We also make it easier for you to access our website so that you do not have to enter the same information repeatedly when you visit our website. We can place these cookies without your consent.

3.2 Analysis cookies

Analysis cookies are used to better understand user behavior. These also enable the needs-based design of our services

Since these statistics are recorded anonymously, no permission is required to place analytical cookies. The analysis cookies are placed in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

3.3 Social media buttons

We have added buttons for Facebook and Twitter on our website. These buttons work using pieces of code coming from Facebook and Twitter themselves. This code places cookies. These social media bars can also store and process certain information so that personalized advertising can be displayed to you. The data may also be passed on to other third parties. The data protection information of the respective provider linked below can be used to determine whether and to what extent this happens. Please note that the use of your data beyond our processing is the responsibility of these companies and that it takes place without our cooperation.

Please read the privacy policy of these social networks to find out how they handle your personal data that they process with the help of these cookies. Please also note that the data protection declarations can change regularly.

The retrieved data is anonymized as far as possible, so that a direct conclusion about a person as a visitor to our website is normally not possible. The legal basis for the integration is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. The use of the data in this category is therefore only possible with your consent.

4. Types of Cookies

  • A distinction is made between two types of cookies. First-party cookies are stored and managed directly by the provider of the website. These are used to record information about your user behavior on our website. Cookies are also collected and managed by third parties (so-called third-party cookies).

  • Session cookies (temporarily) are deleted when you close your browser and do not collect any information from your computer. These cookies usually store information in the form of a session identification that does not personally identify the user.

  • Persistent cookies (permanent) are stored on your hard drive until they expire (i.e. based on their expiration date) or you delete them yourself. These cookies are used to collect identifying information about users, such as web surfing behavior or preferences in relation to certain websites.

  • Absolutely necessary cookies are cookies that you can use to view the website and which are primarily required for security reasons.

  • Functional cookies "remember" registered visitors / customers in order to improve their user experience.
