Privacy

This privacy policy informs users about the way, extend and purpose of the collection of personal data by the responsible provider Techstory e.U.

The legal basis for the privacy policy is contained in the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG – Federal Data Protection Law) and the Telemediengesetz (TMG- Telecommunications Media Law).

ACCESS DATA/ SERVER-LOGFILES

The provider (or more specifically his web space provider) collects data whenever someone visits the site of the offering (these are called server log files). These access data include:

Name of the visited website, date and time of visit, transmitted data volume, information of successful visit, type of browser and version, operating system of the user, referrer URL (the site visited before), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider uses these protocol data for statistical evaluation for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the offering. The provider reserves the right to check protocol data at a later time, when there exists concrete evidence justifying suspicion of illegal use.

HANDLING PERSONAL DATA

Personal data is information that helps determine a person, meaning these dates help trace one particular person. Among this information ranges the name, email address or phone number. Details such as preferences, hobbies, memberships or websites visited are on the list of such personal data as well.

The provider will only collect, use or divulge data related to your person if this is a legal act and provided the user gives consent to the collection of the data.
