We take protecting your personal data very seriously. Particular respect for your privacy when processing personal data is very important to us.

Personal data is information that can be used to determine a user’s identity or make it possible to determine their identity. This includes information such as your proper name, date of birth, address/postal address, e-mail address, IP address or telephone number. This does not include information that cannot be directly linked to the true identity (for example preferred websites or number of users of a site, anonymized data).

Our website can be used generally without revealing your identity. However, if you decide to register, i.e. log in as a member (registered User), you can store personal information and therefore personal data in your individual user profile. However, it is up to you to decide whether you want to enter this data. As an attempt is made to collect as little personal data as possible to use the service, all you have to do to register is enter an e-mail address, which does not have to contain your real name. The automatically generated password is then sent to this address.

The following explanations give you an overview of how we protect you and which type of data is collected for a given purpose.

This data is only analyzed to improve our service and does not allow any conclusions to be made about you. This data is not combined with other data sources. The data is also deleted after a statistical evaluation.

We observe the tax and company law archival periods before deleting personal data if the data in question is no longer required for the intended use purposes. If you register for long-term services on our website (e.g. newsletter), your data is deleted from the service in question after any archival periods after you deregister from the service in question.
