Registration, Login, and User Account
Users can create a user account. Within the scope of registration, the mandatory information required is communicated to the users and processed for the purposes of providing the offer on the basis of contractual fulfilment of obligations. The processed data includes in particular the registration information (name, password as well as an e-mail address). The data entered during registration will be used for the purposes of using the offer and its purpose.
Users may be informed by e-mail on proceedings relevant to their registration, such as technical changes. If users have terminated their registration, their data with regard to the registration are deleted, subject to a statutory retention obligation. In the event of termination, it is the responsibility of the users to secure their data before the end of the contract. We are entitled to irretrievably delete all user data stored during the term of the contract.
Within the scope of using our registration and login functions as well as the use of the user account, we may store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests, as well as the users’ protection against misuse and other unauthorized use. This data will not be passed on to third parties unless it is necessary to pursue our claims or there is a legal obligation to do so.
Participation in the Forum requires registration, which, unless otherwise specified in the registration form, must include a name or your name, a password and the e-mail address to which the access data will be sent. For security reasons, the password should be state of the art, i.e., complicated (users will be advised of this during registration if necessary) and should not be used elsewhere. Forum posts are visible to the public unless their visibility is restricted to certain members or groups of members. The contributions of the authors are stored with their name, if registered or indicated, the time and the entry content. When registering and writing entries, the IP addresses of the users are also stored, in case the entries should have an illegal content and the IP addresses could serve the prosecution. The responsible person reserves the right to delete the applications and entries based on proper consideration.
