Privacy Policy

Preamble

We take the protection of your personal data seriously. The special consideration of privacy when processing personal data is an important concern for us. Personal data is used only in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act [BDSG]. The operators of this website commit themselves to maintaining confidentiality. These web pages may contain links to websites of other providers to which this Privacy Policy does not apply.

Personal data

Personal data means information that can be used to identify a particular person. This includes information such as the correct name, street address, postal address and telephone number. It does not mean information that is not directly related to a real identity (such as favourite websites or number of users of a site). As a rule, our website can be used without disclosing your identity. But you can store personal information in your individual user profile if you decide to register, i.e. log in as a member (registered user). It is at the discretion of the user to enter or withhold this data. Since we try to collect as little personal data as possible for the use of our website, registration only requires that you enter a name – also a pseudonym under which you will be registered as a member – and an email address to which we can send your password. Our servers store data when you access our pages (e.g. IP address, date, time and pages viewed). This data is not used in connection with you as a person. We reserve the right to compile statistical analyses of anonymised datasets. We use the personal data for purposes of technical administration of the web pages and for customer management, and only to the extent that is necessary in each case. In addition, personal data is only stored if it is provided voluntarily.

Transfer of personal data

We use personal information only for the purposes of this website. We do not transfer the information to third parties without explicit consent. Should data be transferred to service providers within the framework of a data processing agreement, these providers are bound by the Federal Data Protection Act [BDSG], other statutory regulations and this Privacy Policy. Personal data is only collected and transferred to government institutions and authorities for compliance with mandatory legal provisions.

Use of cookies

We use cookies, which are small files containing configuration information. They help to identify user-specific settings and implement particular user functions. We do not use cookies to collect personal data. All functions of the website can also be used without cookies, but some user-defined properties and settings will then be unavailable.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. (Google). Google Analytics uses cookies, text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website, compile reports on website activity for the website operators and provide other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties for compliance with legal requirements, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Under no circumstances will Google connect your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting the settings in your browser. However, we would like to point out that you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent if you do so. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

Children

Persons under 18 years of age should not transfer personal data to us without the consent of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request or collect personal data from children, and we do not transfer any such data to third parties.

Right of withdrawal

If you have provided us with personal data, you can change and delete the data at any time in your user profile. Kindly contact the webmaster if you wish to delete your account completely. However, contributions in forums, comments, date announcements and articles that you have posted up to this point may be retained.

Links to other websites

Our website contains links to other websites. We have no influence on whether their operators comply with the data protection regulations.

Contributions

Contributions posted on our website are freely accessible. Contributions should, therefore, be carefully checked prior to posting to determine whether they contain information that is not intended for public consumption. The contributions may be registered in search engines and might also be available worldwide, without a user accessing our website specifically.

Questions and comments

Please contact the Computron-MV webmaster by email if you have questions, suggestions or comments concerning data protection.

Right to information

You have the right at any time to obtain information about the data stored concerning your person, its origin and recipients, as well as the purpose of the data processing. The webmaster will gladly provide information about the stored data.

Security notice:

We implement technical and organisational measures to ensure to the greatest extent that your personal data is stored in such a way that third parties cannot access it. However, we cannot guarantee complete data security when communicating by email, so we advise you to send confidential information by post.
