  • Issuing of a donation receipt by DKFZ
  • Asking for donations (by mail), e.g. sending of information material by DKFZ and/or contract processors commissioned by DKFZ.

DKFZ also processes personal data for the purpose of asking for donations, as DKFZ has a legitimate interest in collecting donations for cancer research. This also applies if you would like to initiate or have initiated a donation campaign or a donation event and have provided us with your data for this purpose. This also applies if you requested information material about DKFZ and have provided us with your data for this purpose.

In the case of occasional donations, using a password, your first and last name (respectively the company name) will be forwarded to the initiator of the donation event (donor list), if he is known to us, and requests this information. Your personal data will not be passed on to additional third parties.
The personal data collected in the course of your donation will be stored for ten years from the date of receipt of your last donation. We delete the data arising in this context after the storage is no longer necessary, or restrict the processing if statutory retention obligations exist.
You can request information at any time as to which data of yours we are processing (right of access). You have the right to revisions and/or additions, if the processed personal data concerning you are incorrect or incomplete (right of rectification). You can demand the restriction of processing of your personal data at any time (to restriction of processing).
