Privacy & Cookies

Last updated: November 17, 2016.
Since it is the primary language of this website the privacy policy is at the moment only available in English (a German version will be available soon).


The following outlines which personal data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, and how it will be stored and processed.

Please read it carefully!


Data we collect from you

When you use and interact with our site we may collect and process the following data about you:

  • Information that you provide by filling out forms on our site, especially at the time of signing up for an account or inquiring about information.
  • If you contact us via phone or email, we may keep a record of the correspondence.
  • Details of your visits to our site including, but not limited to, traffic data, weblogs and other communication data, whether this is required for our own purposes or otherwise.
  • Information about the device which you use to access our page, including unique device identifiers, operating system, browser type and mobile network information.
  • When using location-based services, we may collect and process information about your actual location. Most devices will acquire your acceptance before exposing your location but this is not within our responsibility. We recommend not to use our service if you are not fine with sharing your location.

Where we store your data

As of now we store data you submit to this website on servers within the European Union, but might decide in the future to store or process it somewhere else for strategic or economic reasons. By submitting data to our website, you agree to this potential transfer without further notice. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure at all times that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of it and strongly suggest you do not submit data that could harm you or others if exposed. Any data submission is at your own risk.


How we use your data

We will use your email address to communicate with you, send you updates about our service and provide you with relevant offers from our service partners. If not specifically stated otherwise we do not share your email address with anyone, communication with third party services outside of our page always goes through us.

Data you add to your profile besides your email address, like profile picture, username etc. will be publicly visible to all users of our website.


Disclosure of information

We won't disclose any of your private information without your prior confirmation. Please note however that some of the integrated third party services might very well do so. Please refer to their privacy policies for further information. Please also have a look at the sections "Facebook login and import" and "third party widgets" with regards to these issues.


Server log files

In order to monitor usage and problems of this site we store so-called server log files, which your browser transmits automatically while using the website. The collected information is generally not associated with personal data and or other data sources. However, there might be exceptions in the case of suspected misuse or illegal actions.

The collected information comprises:

  • Brower type / version
  • Operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Hostname of the system executing requests
  • Timestamps of requests


Cookies

This website uses cookies to improve the user experience. A cookie is a small file that is stored on your device to save and retrieve information. Some cookies are essential and the site won't properly work without them. These include cookies that are set when you sign up or log in (session cookies). Additionally, this site may use non-essential cookies, i.a. to anonymously track visitors and user behaviour. We use this data to improve our service.

Among the used cookies are also cookies from third party services that store and transmit data which we have no control of. Please refer to the privacy- and cookie policies of those services (listed below) for more details. Also refer to the 'Widgets' section for more information about cookies used by third party widgets.


Please do not use our service if you disagree with the use of cookies as stated above!


Facebook login and import

If you sign up with Facebook or import events from Facebook, Facebook will ask you to grant our service access to some personal information of you. If you grant these access rights the stated personal information will be imported from Facebook and stored on our servers. So please think carefully about it and do not use this feature if you do not agree with the above.

We do not have any control of those services and their policies. Please refer to their websites for more information about their policies.
