Who we are
Our website address is: https://rundfunkbeitrag-abschalten.de.
When visitors leave comments on the site, we collect the data displayed in the comment form, as well as the visitor’s IP address and the browser’s user agent string to assist in spam detection.
When uploading images to the website, you should avoid uploading images that contain embedded location data (EXIF GPS). Site visitors can download and extract any location data from images on the site.
When you leave a comment on our site, you may agree to have your name, email address and website stored in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to re-enter your information when you leave another comment. These cookies have a lifetime of one year.
When you visit our login page, we set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie does not contain any personal information and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we also set several cookies to store your login information and screen display choices. The login cookies are stored for two days, and the screen options cookies are stored for one year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will be retained for two weeks. When you log out of your account, the login cookies are removed.
When you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie is stored in your browser. This cookie does not contain any personal data and only shows the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this website may contain embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves exactly as if the visitor had visited the other website.
With whom we share your information
If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.
How long we keep your data
When you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are stored indefinitely. This allows us to automatically detect and approve any follow-up comments, rather than keeping them in a moderation queue.
For users who register on our site (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit this information.
What rights you have over your information
If you have an account on this website or have left comments, you may request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You may also request that we delete any personal data we hold about you. This does not apply to data that we are required to retain for administrative, legal or security reasons.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be screened by an automated spam detection service.
