GDPR changes

General Data Protection Regulation ( GDPR )

The day has finally come. The new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has become reality. With this new law every user has the right to know what data a service is storing. This post tries to clear up the situation what that means and what actually changed.

privacy policy

The new privacy policy describes which userdata gets processed and/or stored on my servers. In addition to that the storage duration is listed in detail.

The whole purpose of storing/ processing any user data on my services:

  • provide the service the user registered for
  • guarantee that the server/ service operates correctly

I do not profile, track and/ or monetize any of my users.

terms of service

Due to the GDPR changes and users from different contries I updated and translated the terms of service.
