Below we inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and the use of personal data by the Fliegerschule Wasserkuppe and our web space provider sysda.net:

1. Logging of access data / server log files

When you visit this website, the web server automatically collects data about every access, but it cannot be assigned to a specific person. This anonymous data includes e.g. B. the requested URL or the file name, date and time of access, the referrer URL (previously visited page), the browser type / browser version, the operating system used, and the IP address of the accessing device.
This log data is only used for statistical evaluations and for the security and optimization of the website. However, the web space provider reserves the right to check this data if there is reason to suspect illegal use. In addition, it is not passed on to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes.

2. Use of personal data

Personal data is only collected by the site operator to the extent that you provide it to us with your knowledge. This includes, for example, name, email address, telephone number and address, which are transmitted in the context of an inquiry via a contact form. This data is stored for the purpose of processing your request. A comparison with other data that may have been recorded in a different way does not take place. Personal data will only be passed on if the site operator is legally obliged to do so.

3. Use of cookies

Cookies are text files that are stored by the web server on the visitor's access device. These text files contain information that, on the one hand, serves to make the website more user-friendly and, on the other hand, enables statistical analysis of website use. There is no impairment of your access device or files stored there.
As a website visitor, you can influence the use of cookies yourself: on the one hand, you can configure your browser accordingly so that the storage of cookies is deactivated. On the other hand, there is the possibility to object to the use of cookies in the information displayed by the website operator. In this case, a cookie is also created, but only with information about the use of cookies (yes / no). If you delete the cookies via the browser settings, this means that you may have to agree or contradict the use of cookies again.
We also point out that the use and convenience of use is restricted by deactivating cookies.

3.1 Use of Matomo

This website uses the Matomo web analysis service to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of Matomo is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Cookies are stored on your computer for this evaluation. The person responsible stores the information collected in this way only on his server in Germany. You can stop the evaluation by deleting existing cookies and preventing the storage of cookies. If you prevent the storage of cookies, we would like to point out that you may not be able to use this website to its full extent. The setting in your browser can prevent cookies from being saved.

Preventing the use of Matomo is possible by removing the following check mark and thus activating the opt-out plug-in:

Matomo uses this website with the "AnonymizeIP" extension. As a result, IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, which means that they cannot be directly linked to a person. The IP address transmitted by your browser using Matomo will not be merged with other data collected by us. The Matomo program is an open source project. You can find information from the third-party provider on data protection at http://Matomo.org/privacy/policy.

4. Integration of services and content from third parties

If third-party content, such as B. Videos from the provider YouTube, maps from the provider Google and RSS feeds or graphics from other providers must be integrated, this presupposes that the IP address of the accessing device is also transmitted to these third-party providers. This is essential for the presentation of this content.

5. Information, revocation and deletion

You have the right to request information about personal data that has been stored about you. Please send your request in writing or by email to the above address. In addition, you have the right to correct, block and delete your personal data, as long as there is no statutory retention requirement.

6. Google reCAPTCHA privacy policy

Our primary goal is to secure and protect our website for you and for us in the best possible way. To ensure this, we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google Inc. For the European region, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services. With reCAPTCHA we can determine whether you are really a flesh and blood human and not a robot or other spam software. We understand spam as any unsolicited information that comes to us electronically. With the classic CAPTCHAS you mostly had to solve text or picture puzzles to check. With reCAPTCHA from Google, we usually don't have to bother you with such puzzles. In most cases, it is sufficient to simply tick the box and confirm that you are not a bot. With the new Invisible reCAPTCHA version you don't even have to check the box anymore. You will find out exactly how this works and, above all, which data is used for it in the course of this data protection declaration.

What is reCAPTCHA?

reCAPTCHA is a free captcha service from Google that protects websites from spam software and misuse by non-human visitors. The most common use of this service is when filling out forms on the Internet. A captcha service is a type of automatic Turing test that is designed to ensure that an action on the Internet is carried out by a human and not a bot. In the classic Turing test (named after the computer scientist Alan Turing), a person determines the difference between bot and human. With captchas, this is also done by the computer or a software program. Classic captchas work with small tasks that are easy for humans to solve, but are very difficult for machines. With reCAPTCHA, you no longer have to actively solve puzzles. The tool uses modern risk techniques to distinguish people from bots. Here you only have to tick the text field "I am not a robot" or with Invisible reCAPTCHA even this is no longer necessary. With reCAPTCHA, a JavaScript element is integrated into the source text and then the tool runs in the background and analyzes your user behavior. The software calculates a so-called captcha score from these user actions. Google uses this score to calculate the probability that you are human before entering the captcha. reCAPTCHA or captchas in general are always used when bots could manipulate or abuse certain actions (such as registrations, surveys, etc.).

Why do we use reCAPTCHA on our website?

We only want to welcome people of flesh and blood on our side. Bots or spam software of all kinds can safely stay at home. That is why we are doing all we can to protect ourselves and offer you the best possible user-friendliness. For this reason we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google. So we can be pretty sure that we will remain a “bot-free” website. By using reCAPTCHA, data is transmitted to Google in order to determine whether you are really human. reCAPTCHA thus serves the security of our website and consequently also your security. For example, without reCAPTCHA, it could happen that a bot registers as many email addresses as possible in order to "spam" on forums or blogs with unwanted advertising content. With reCAPTCHA we can avoid such bot attacks.

What data is stored by reCAPTCHA?

reCAPTCHA collects personal data from users in order to determine whether the actions on our website really come from people. The IP address and other data that Google needs for the reCAPTCHA service can therefore be sent to Google. IP addresses are almost always shortened beforehand within the member states of the EU or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before the data ends up on a server in the USA. The IP address will not be combined with other Google data unless you are logged into your Google account while using reCAPTCHA. First, the reCAPTCHA algorithm checks whether Google cookies from other Google services (YouTube, Gmail, etc.) have already been placed on your browser. ReCAPTCHA then sets an additional cookie in your browser and takes a snapshot of your browser window.

The following list of collected browser and user data does not claim to be complete. Rather, they are examples of data that, to our knowledge, are processed by Google.

  • Referrer URL (the address of the page from which the visitor comes)
  • IP address (e.g. 256.123.123.1)
  • Information about the operating system (the software that enables the operation of your computer. Known operating systems are Windows, Mac OS X or Linux)
  • Cookies (small text files that save data in your browser)
  • Mouse and keyboard behavior (every action you perform with the mouse or keyboard is saved)
  • Date and language settings (which language or which date you have preset on your PC is saved)
  • All Javascript objects (JavaScript is a programming language that enables websites to adapt to the user. JavaScript objects can collect all possible data under one name)
  • Screen resolution (shows how many pixels the picture consists of)

It is undisputed that Google uses and analyzes this data even before you click on the tick “I am not a robot”. With the Invisible reCAPTCHA version, there is even no ticking and the entire recognition process runs in the background. How much and which data Google stores exactly cannot be learned from Google in detail.

The following cookies are used by reCAPTCHA: Here we refer to the reCAPTCHA demo version from Google at https://www.google.com/recaptcha/api2/demo. All of these cookies require a unique identifier for tracking purposes. Here is a list of cookies that Google reCAPTCHA has set on the demo version:

Note: This list cannot claim to be complete, as experience has shown that Google always changes the choice of cookies.

How long and where is the data stored?

By inserting reCAPTCHA, your data will be transferred to the Google server. Where exactly this data is stored, Google does not clearly state, even after repeated inquiries. Without having received a confirmation from Google, it can be assumed that data such as mouse interaction, time spent on the website or language settings on the European or American Google Servers. The IP address that your browser transmits to Google is generally not merged with other Google data from other Google services. However, if you are logged into your Google account while using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, the data will be merged. Google's different data protection provisions apply.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

If you do not want any data about you or your behavior to be transmitted to Google, you must completely log out of Google and delete all Google cookies before you visit our website or use the reCAPTCHA software. In principle, the data is automatically transmitted to Google as soon as you visit our website. In order to delete this data again, you have to go to Google support  https://support.google.com/?hl=de&tid=331609772751 Contact.

So if you use our website, you agree that Google LLC and its representatives automatically collect, process and use data.

You can learn a little more about reCAPTCHA on Google's web developer page https://developers.google.com/recaptcha/. Google goes into the technical development of the reCAPTCHA in more detail here, but you will look in vain for precise information about data storage and data protection issues. A good overview of the basic use of data at Google can be found in the in-house data protection declaration https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
