Scope of This Notice
This Privacy Statement is intended to describe this web site’s privacy practices and provide information about the choices you have regarding the ways in which information collected by this web site is used and disclosed.
Commitment to Privacy
At the piware.de web site, your privacy is important to me. To better protect your privacy, I have provided this Statement explaining my information practices and the choices you can make about the way your personal information is collected, used and disclosed.
This website uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology, which encrypts data to and from my website.
This Privacy Statement applies to all information collected by or submitted to piware.de, including personal data. “Personal data” is data that can be used to identify an individual.
This web server logs your interaction with the site in something called a log file. Standard web server log files contain basic information like what time what pages were viewed, the browser name, and the IP address of the visitor. I use this information to analyze trends, administer the site, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use in my server’s statistical reports. I make no effort to identify IP addresses with individual visitors. It is my policy to delete log files after a one year period or sooner.
Sharing Your Personal Data
Unless you consent, piware.de will never process or share the personal data you provide to me except as described below.
piware.de may disclose your personal data to third parties under any of the following circumstances:
As required to provide service, and for e-mail housing (as a consequence of uses already described in this Privacy Statement). It is in the piware.de page’s legitimate interest to provide all visitors an accurate record of data and content provided by the piware.de page’s services, and to maintain the integrity of that data and content for historical, scientific, and research purposes. This data and content may include but is not limited to email, comments, photos, and other downloadable artifacts.
As required by law (such as responding to a valid subpoena, warrant, audit, or agency action, or to prevent fraud).
For research activities, including the production of statistical reports (such aggregated information is used to describe my services and is not used to contact the subjects of the report).
Public Forums Reminder
This site contains links to other sites. piware.de does not control the information collection of sites that can be reached through links from piware.de. If you have questions about the data collection procedures of linked sites, please contact these sites directly.
Your Rights and Choices in the EEA
Where the EU General Data Protection Regulation 2016 / 679 (“GDPR”) applies to the processing of your personal data, especially when you access the website from a country in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), you have the following rights, subject to some limitations, against piware.de:
- The right to access your personal data;
- The right to rectify the personal data I hold about you;
- The right to erase your personal data;
- The right to restrict my use of your personal data;
- The right to object to my use of your personal data;
- The right to receive your personal data in a usable electronic format and transmit it to a third party (also known as the right of data portability); and
- The right to lodge a complaint with your local data protection authority.
If you would like to exercise any of these rights, you may do so by contacting me via email. Please understand, however, the rights enumerated above are not absolute in all cases.
Where the GDPR applies, you also have the right to withdraw any consent you have given to uses of your personal data. If you wish to withdraw consent that you have previously provided to piware.de, please contact me. However, the withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
How to Access, Modify or Update Your Information
Contact me if you wish to remove your personal data from the piware.de website. Other locations outside of piware.de where you may have used your personal data as an identifier (e. g. Google+ posts, GitHub comments, list postings in email list archives) will not be altered.
Changes to this Privacy Statement
piware.de reserves the right to change this Privacy Statement from time to time. If I do make changes, the revised Privacy Statement will be posted on the main project’s website.
