Privacy Policy

The following information details the manner in which we use your data. We reserve the right to modify these provisions from time to time. We therefore recommend that you review our information on data processing at regular intervals.

Responsible party

You will find legal information concerning liability in the imprint.


Social media share buttons

The Luther Memorials Foundation websites contain ‘Share’ buttons for the social media services Facebook, Twitter and Google+. In order to help prevent the accidental and involuntary collection and transfer of data to the service provider, we use a ‘two-click solution’.  It is only after this plug-in has been activated that the collection of information and its transfer to the service provider takes place.

To this end, we use ‘Shariff’ to ensure reliable data protection. Shariff was developed in order to increase privacy online and replace the conventional ‘Share’ buttons for social networks. You will find more information here.

The Luther Memorials Foundation itself does not collect any personal data through ‘Share’ buttons or the use thereof.

Embedded videos / YouTube

The Luther Memorials Foundation uses embedded YouTube videos in privacy-enhanced mode. This means that YouTube does not save any cookies for a user that visits a website with an embedded YouTube video player but who does not click on the video to launch it. If the user clicks on the YouTube video player, YouTube may under some circumstances save cookies on the user's computer, but no personal cookie information for the playing of embedded videos is saved (Source: YouTube ‘Aktivieren des erweiterten Datenschutzmodus für eingebettete Videos’ [Activating privacy-enhanced mode for embedded videos]). You will find more details in the privacy and data protection policies for YouTube. We do not collect any personal data related to embedded YouTube videos.

Google Maps

The Luther Memorials Foundation uses Google Maps for the depiction of maps and for generating directions on how to reach its sites.

Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use by Google and its representatives or third-party providers of data that has been automatically collected or that has been entered by you.

You will find the terms of service for Google Maps here.
