What data do we collect?

Non-identified and non-identifiable information that you provide during the registration process or that is collected through the use of our services ("non-personal data"). Non-Personal Information does not identify who it was collected from. Non-Personal Information that we collect consists primarily of technical and aggregate usage information.
Individually identifiable information, which is any information by which you can be identified or could reasonably be identified ("personal data"). Personal information we collect through our Services may include information requested from time to time, such as names, email addresses, addresses, phone numbers, IP addresses and more. When we combine personal data with non-personal data, as long as it is in combination, we will treat it as personal data.

Nicht personenbezogene Daten
Bitte beachten Sie, dass unsere Unternehmen sowie unsere vertrauenswürdigen Partner und Dienstanbieter auf der ganzen Welt ansässig sind. Zu den in dieser Datenschutzrichtlinie erläuterten Zwecke speichern und verarbeiten wir alle nicht personenbezogenen Daten, die wir erfassen, in unterschiedlichen Rechtsordnungen.
Personenbezogene Daten können in den Vereinigten Staaten, in Irland, Südkorea, Taiwan, Israel und soweit für die ordnungsgemäße Bereitstellung unserer Dienste und/oder gesetzlich vorgeschrieben (wie nachstehend weiter erläutert) in anderen Rechtsordnungen gepflegt, verarbeitet und gespeichert werden.
How long will the data be held?
Please note that we will retain the data we collect for as long as is necessary to provide our services, to comply with our legal and contractual obligations to you, to resolve disputes and to enforce our agreements.
We may correct, amend or delete inaccurate or incomplete data at any time at our sole discretion.
How do we protect the data?
The hosting service for our digital assets provides us with the online platform through which we can offer our services to you. Your data can be stored via our hosting provider's data storage, databases and general applications. It stores your data on secure servers behind a firewall and it provides secure HTTPS access to most areas of its services.
Notwithstanding the measures and efforts taken by us and our hosting provider, we cannot and do not guarantee absolute protection and security of the data you upload, post or otherwise share with us or others.
For this reason, we ask that you establish strong passwords and, where possible, do not provide us or others with confidential information that you believe could cause you significant or lasting harm if disclosed. In addition, because e-mail and instant messaging are not considered secure forms of communication, we ask that you do not disclose confidential information through either of these communication channels.
the use of your personal data is necessary to perform or conclude a contract (e.g. to provide you with the services yourself or to provide customer service or technical support);
the use of your personal data is necessary to comply with relevant legal or regulatory obligations, or
the use of your personal data is necessary to support our legitimate business interests (provided that this is done at all times in a manner that is proportionate and respects your data protection rights).
As an EU resident you can:
request confirmation as to whether or not personal data relating to you is being processed and request access to your stored personal data and certain additional information;
request the receipt of personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format;
request the correction of your personal data that is stored by us;
request the deletion of your personal data;
object to the processing of your personal data by us;
request the restriction of the processing of your personal data, or
submit a complaint to a supervisory authority.
However, please note that these rights are not unlimited and may be subject to our own legitimate interests and regulatory requirements. If you have any general questions about the personal data we collect and how we use it, please contact us as set out below.
In the course of providing the Services, we may transfer data across borders to affiliates or other third parties and from your country/jurisdiction to other countries/jurisdictions around the world. By using the Services, you consent to the transfer of your data outside the EEA.
If you are located in the EEA, your personal data will only be transferred to locations outside the EEA if we are satisfied that there is an adequate or comparable level of protection for personal data. We will take appropriate steps to ensure that we have adequate contractual arrangements in place with our third parties to ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place so that the risk of unlawful use, alteration, deletion, loss or theft of your personal data is minimised and that these third parties act at all times in accordance with applicable laws.
