Data Protection Statement

The protection of your privacy when using our websites is important to us.

Anonymous data collection

As a matter of principle, we do not collect, process or use personal data. You can visit the website of the Förderverein AIP e.V. at without telling us who you are. We only learn the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you visit us and the web pages you visit on our site. This information is evaluated for statistical purposes. You remain anonymous as an individual user.

Personal data

Personal data is only collected if you give it to us voluntarily, for example to use personalised services (e.g. data queries).  The data collected in this way is not passed on or used beyond the limited purpose of registration/use, except for anonymous usage statistics.

Passing on of data

The personal data collected within the framework of the website of the Friends will only be used without your consent for the purpose of processing and handling your enquiries. No data will be passed on to other third parties. You can, of course, revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

The association uses IT systems of the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) for the storage, processing and use of the aforementioned data and also receives technical support from employees of the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP).

External links

For your optimal information, you will find links on our pages that refer to the pages of third parties. The Friends have no influence whatsoever on the content and design of these pages of other providers. The guarantees of this data protection declaration therefore naturally do not apply there.

In addition, you can send information, requests for deletion and correction of your data and also suggestions at any time by e-mail or letter to the board of the Förderverein AIP e.V.:
