We reserve the right to adjust the content from time to time. It is therefore advisable to take note of our information on data processing again at regular intervals.

This privacy notice will apply to the following domains as of July 15, 2020:


Personal data

We will only process your personal data with your consent or if required or permitted by law. We will only process personal data that is required for the processing of orders in our store, that is collected in the context of the contact form, the comment function or the registration for further e-mail deliveries or that you also provide to us voluntarily.

Personal data is all data that contains information about the personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable person. This includes, in a non-exhaustive list, the name, gender, date of birth, telephone number, e-mail address, physical address.

Transfer of personal data to third parties

For the processing of orders it may be necessary to transmit your personal data to third parties (e.g. carriers).

The data disclosed to third parties will only be disclosed to them for the purpose of fulfilling their obligations or tasks. Data will only be passed on to state institutions or authorities within the framework of mandatory legal provisions.

For example, we may or must provide information about our stored data on request in individual cases, insofar as this is necessary for the purposes of criminal prosecution, to avert danger, to fulfill other sovereign tasks or to enforce rights or defend against claims.

Duration of data storage

Your personal data will only be stored for as long as is necessary for the provision of our services. Sometimes data storage for longer periods may be necessary due to legal or statutory obligations.

Data security

We point out that data transmission over the Internet (eg communication by e-mail) may have security gaps. A comprehensive protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

We have set up technical and organizational security measures to protect your data with us, in particular against loss, manipulation or unauthorized access. These also include a valid SSL certificate for our websites.


You have the right to request information about your personal data stored by us free of charge at any time. If your data is incorrect or wrongly stored, or you wish to revoke your consent to the processing of your data, we will be happy to correct, block or, if necessary, delete it. Please also inform us as soon as there are any changes to your personal data. Please send your requests for information, questions, complaints or suggestions on the subject of data protection by post to: Evangelische Marienschwesternschaft e.V., Heidelberger Landstraße 107, 64297 Darmstadt or by e-mail to:
In any case, our response will be in writing and exclusively to the address already stored in our systems.
Notwithstanding this, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority if you believe that your personal data is being processed unlawfully by the Evangelical Sisterhood of Mary.
