Privacy statement (translated from german)

Privacy

The operators of these website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

The use of our website is possible anonymously without providing personal data. If personal data (e. g. name or e-mail addresses) are collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a optional basis. These data will not be transmitted to third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e. g. when communicating by e-mail) may have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Cookies

Some of the websites use cookies. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly and effective. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

The cookies used are so-called "session cookies". They are created after logging in and deleted after logging out. However, if you do not log out, the cookies remain stored on your device for some time or until you delete them yourself. These cookies make it possible for us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website. Please note that for security reasons, only one browser can be connected to an account at a time and invalid cookies will automatically be removed.

You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, you can exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and you can activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. However, if cookies are disabled, the functionality of this website will be limited.

IP addresses

The IP addresses must be sent for data transmission. IP addresses can be used to identify users. Our web hosting company stores IP addresses in log files. Our website does not store IP addresses. End users are not detected or followed up. External providers can also store your IP data - but we have no influence on this.

External files

External files are files that are not physically located on our server and for which we have no control (e. g. images from other websites). These files can be used to track your IP addresses and possibly even identify you. We have no control over this. However, there is a setting for logged-on users that deactivates the automatic loading of external graphics (default setting: activated).

URL processing

The pages you visit are not transmitted directly to us by our bookmarklets or browser extensions. Instead, the URL is first shortened locally in the browser. A history of your surfing activity is not stored by us.

Code injection by bookmarklet

Bookmarklets are browser extensions written in JavaScript and saved as bookmarks. The bookmarklets are created and executed by the user himself. When using our bookmarklets, an IFrame is inserted into the current web page, which is needed for loading and displaying further content. Some web pages can prevent code injection. Apart from the URL, no other data is taken from the current page. For more information, see URL processing.

Note that you should only use trusted bookmarklets on trusted websites. Web pages can detect and prevent the injection, deliver incorrect content to you, or even manipulate or grab the content. We have done a great job to prevent this - despite all our efforts, there is no complete protection against it. We assume no liability for possible damages.

It is recommended to use bookmarklets for testing. For permanent and secure use, browser extensions (addons) are recommended because they do not require code injection and are executed separately from the website - i. e. the website cannot determine if an addon is running or not.

Contact form

If you send us inquiries by using the contact form, your data from the inquiry form including the contact details you provided there will be saved for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions.

Messages

Writing messages is the main function of this website. If you send messages, your user name and the time of creation will be saved in addition to your content - and if not anonymously used, also your user name. Don't forget that the messages are always public (similar to a forum or chat) and they will remain stored for a long time.

Encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content (e. g. login data). Encryption means that your data cannot be read by third parties. This encrypted connection is usually displayed in the browser's address line with https:// However, since we used IFrames (via bookmarklets) or browser extensions, the encrypted transmission is not always visible.

Passwords

Your passwords are never stored in plain text, but are first modified with non-public data and then processed by a one-way function (HASH). Password data generated in this way cannot be converted back. Logging in with incorrect passwords is complicated by the system. Your login data will not be passed on to third parties. The data is also stored as securely as possible in the database.

Webtracking

We do not use tracking tools to track your history. Instead, simple evaluation of the log files is enough, which are automatically created by the web hosting company.

Google reCAPTCHA

We only use reCAPTCHA from Google if we can't recognize you as a member - while you want to send data to our server. The query is used to determine whether the input is made by a human being or misused by automated, automatic processing. As part of the query, some data and the IP address will be transmitted to Google. All reCAPTCHA files are only loaded if they are needed immediately - this prevents the user from constantly tracking them. Sie k├Ânnen die Nutzung von reCAPTCHA verhindern, wenn Sie sich als Benutzer bei uns registrieren und sich einloggen.

JSDELIVR

We use a CDN service from www.jsdelivr.com to download an open source library "EmojiOne". This library consists of a JavaScript file and many associated Emoji graphics, which can be provided much more efficiently via CDN. During the data transfer, your IP address is transferred to a server of the provider in your area. However, these files are stored in the browser's cache for a very long time - this avoids possible user tracking.
