An EMS is a third party service provider of software/applications that allows marketers to send out email marketing campaigns to a list of users.

Online presence in social media
We maintain an online presence within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, prospects and users active there and to inform them about our services.
We point out that data of the users outside the area of the European Union can be processed. This may result in risks to users because e.g. the enforcement of user rights could be made more difficult. With respect to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we point out that they are committed to respecting EU privacy standards.
Furthermore, the data of the users are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, e.g. user profiles are created from the user behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles may, in turn, be used to e.g. Place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are allegedly in line with users' interests. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users, in which the user behaviour and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, in the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the devices used by the users (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and logged in to them).
The processing of personal data of users is based on our legitimate interests in effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. If the users are asked by the respective providers for consent to the data processing (that is, they declare their agreement, for example, by ticking a checkbox or confirming a button), the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. a., Art. 7 GDPR.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of contradiction (opt-out), we refer to the following linked information of the provider.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be claimed most effectively from the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, then you can contact us.

Integration of services and contents of third parties

DSGVO), we make use of content or services offered by third-party providers in order to provide their content and services Services, such as Include videos or fonts (collectively referred to as "content").
This always presupposes that the third-party providers of this content perceive the IP address of the users since they could not send the content to their browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We endeavour to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. Third parties may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also referred to as "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. The "pixel tags" can be used to evaluate information, such as visitor traffic, on the pages of this website.
Use of Facebook social plugins
On the basis of our legitimate interests (ie interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO) we use social plugins ("plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"). The plugins can represent interaction elements or content (eg videos, graphics or text contributions) and can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on blue tile, the terms "Like", "Like" or a "thumbs up" sign ) or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here:
Facebook is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, providing a guarantee to comply with European privacy legislation (
When a user invokes a feature of this online offering that includes such a plugin, their device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Facebook directly to the device of the user and incorporated by him into the online offer. In the process, user profiles of the processed data can be created. Therefore, we have no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to our knowledge.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example, press the Like button or leave a comment, the information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will find out and save their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this online offer and link it to his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook and delete his cookies before using our online offer.

Explanation of the use of video and photo recordings
At the church services/events of the Christ International Church, we will take photos and video recordings, later on, the homepage (www.cichurch.org ) / on Facebook (cichurch) / on Instagram (cichurch) / on Twitter (cichurch ) and during the events. We process this data solely on the basis of the legal provisions on data protection and do not pass on the photographs in their raw form for utilization by third parties. In the course of the overarching cooperation, recordings in the form of e.g. Graphics for certain print or digital media (flyer, worship book, small group promotion, etc.) and videos (sermon series videos, countdown video before worship, etc.) are shared with other communities (usually through the platform at ). Other communities use our products as a template, with the possibility that our media used will not be replaced.
The purpose of the shootings is: to present ourselves as a church and to give an exemplary insight into church life to people who were not or not yet in our church services/events.
In doing so, we pay attention to the legitimate interest of each participant of our services, that he or she will not be harmed by a publication. This happens above all through the admission of larger groups of people.
According to § 13 of the BFP data protection regulations, we point to the right of opposition, which is possible for reasons that arise from a particular situation.
