You are not required to provide this information except when inquiring about an event or donating to the Koreanische Zen-Gemeinschaft.

We use your contact details so that we can contact you in case of issues with changes to event schedules, payment, and similar circumstances and send you our newsletter. We may also send you information relating to the event before, during, or after the event. Furthermore, we use your banking details to process donations you have made to us and to send you a receipt for such donations. We also use your personal data to claim tax relief on charitable donations, if applicable.
