Data protection

In connection with access by registered and non-registered users and for the purpose of rendering services and clarifying grievous errors or abuses, IP addresses, date, time and the pages accessed are stored on our server. This data is not evaluated with reference to any individuals. We reserve the right to statistical evaluation with methods that ensure anonymity.

As internet users you may in principle use our online services without divulging your identity. Where within the services offered on the internet the option of inputting personal or commercial data is provided the disclosure of such data by the user occurs on an express voluntary basis.

As a user you agree that any information you have submitted when registering may be stored in a database. This forum system uses cookies to store information on your local computer. Such cookies do not contain any of the information you have submitted above; they serve only to improve your viewing pleasure. The email address is only used for confirming your registration details and password (and for sending new passwords should you forget your current one).

We only use your specifically personal information internally. We do not pass this on to any third parties without your express consent. We only transmit stored data to agencies entitled to have such information if we are obliged to do so by statute or by court order. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent, the webmaster, administrator and the moderators cannot be held liable for any attempt at hacking that may entail the data being compromised.

Registration and membership

The operator collects and presents all published contents of the members for which the members are themselves responsible. Membership is possible after registration. Only those possessing a valid licence code may become WUFI® software users. However, there is no claim to membership. A member may terminate membership at any time by sending a relevant email to the contact address or in any other written manner. The operator in turn reserves the right, in cases where the services are abused, to at any time terminate membership temporarily or completely without giving any reasons for doing so. The use of false personal information in the context of registration is not admissible and will constitute grounds for criminal prosecution.

Contents and their submission

After completing registration all members may submit their own contents and are then responsible for the same. The language of the postings should be English but may also be German. All contents are accessible for both registered and non-registered users. Only contents may be submitted and disseminated that are related to the subject, do not infringe copyrights held by third parties or violate other statutes, that do not contain any commercial advertising and that are not extremist, discriminatory, pornographic or defamatory. The operator and those having editorial responsibility reserve the right to delete submitted contents if these rules are violated or if the contents and the identity information are false or outdated and provided that such circumstances become known to them. The IP address of every posting is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions.
