List of techniques and tools we use for data collection:
We process your personal data in compliance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (“GDPR”), the applicable EU laws and German national data protection laws.
Note: “Aggregated usage statistics”, such as web log data and other data without any connection to a single user, may be retained beyond these periods.
We collect as little data as possible. As far as anonymous or pseudonymous use is possible we anonymize or pseudonymize your data. We aim to empower you as an end user, to be in control of the data that is being shared with, and informed about what and how it is being shared. We believe in your right to remain anonymous and will enable you to prevent an illegitimate exploitation of your information.
We aspire to restore and maintain the value exchange between content creators and users and to ensure the free usage of the web.

This information includes, for example, details such as name, postal address, email address or telephone number, but also nicknames, certificates and information about your interests.

We collect and process website logs for technical reasons, such as, but not limited to, preventing denial of service attacks. Denial of service is typically accomplished by flooding the targeted machine or resource with superfluous requests in an attempt to overload systems and prevent some or all legitimate requests from being fulfilled. Preventing such overloads of our systems and any security issues by denial of service attacks is in your and our vital interest and therefore we use the website logs. We use information collected and processed via subscription downloads, extension update checks, emergency notifications and feedback data sent by you, for technical reasons, such as, but not limited to, ensuring the security of the extension version used by you. Ensuring the security of our extension is in your and our vital interest and therefore we use such data.

We will not transfer your personal data to third parties as a matter of course without letting you know in advance. We will ask for your prior permission unless the transfer of such data is permitted by GDPR or any other applicable EU laws and German national data protection laws.
