Privacy policy

The following privacy policy applies to the use of filehorst.de (hereinafter referred to as the "Website") both as a registered and non-registered user or visitor.

The protection of your data is very important to us. The collection, processing and storage of your personal data is carried out in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). We use your personal data exclusively to provide you with filehorst.de. This statement explains what data is collected and used for what purpose and what options you have regarding the handling of your personal data.

1 Responsible person

Responsible for the collection, processing and use of your personal data in the sense of Art. 4 No. 7 DSGVO is

Jens Hummert,
Hermannstrasse 224a
12049 Berlin-Neukoelln

If you wish to object to the collection, processing or use of your data by filehorst.de in accordance with these data protection provisions, either in whole or in respect of individual measures, you may address your objection to the person responsible.

You can save and/or print this privacy policy at any time.

2 General use of the website

2.1 General

We at filehorst.de make it a point to collect, use and store only those data that we need to offer filehorst.de in a stable and secure manner, in accordance with the principle of data economy. Under no circumstances do we sell your data to third parties.

Young people under the age of 16 cannot effectively consent to the collection and use of their personal data. We have therefore decided to offer the use of filehorst.de only to persons who have reached the age of 16. Persons under the age of 16 who registered before this age limit was introduced can, after consultation with us, provide proof of consent from their legal guardians in order to continue using filehorst.de.

2.2 Access data

When you visit filehorst.de, your terminal device automatically transmits some data to our servers. This access data includes:

  • Name and URL of the retrieved file
  • Date and time of retrieval
  • Data volume transferred
  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system
  • Referrer URL (i.e. the previously visited page)
  • IP address and the requesting provider
  • Session data (see also 2.3 Cookies)

We store and use this data - without assigning it to your person or otherwise profiling it - for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operating, securing and optimizing our online offering, but also for anonymous recording of the number of visitors to our website (traffic) as well as the extent and type of use of our website and services.

Specifically, we create evaluations of the utilization of our website to enable the availability of the service, use the data to detect and ward off possible attacks on our data processing systems, and prevent the illegal use of our service, e.g. by uploading content that is harmful to minors or infringes copyright.

This is also our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) DSGVO. The aforementioned access data are stored in so-called server log files and are automatically deleted after seven days, unless we need the data for the defense and clarification of attacks or illegal use of the service. In this case, the data is deleted immediately as soon as the reason for its storage and use ceases to exist.

2.3 Cookies

We use so-called session cookies to optimize our online offer. A session cookie is a small text file that is sent by the respective servers when you visit a website and is temporarily stored on your hard drive. This file as such contains a so-called session ID, with which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the common session. This allows your terminal device to be recognized when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted after you close the browser.

To a small extent, we also use persistent cookies (also small text files that are stored on your terminal device), which remain on the terminal device and allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit. These cookies are stored on your hard drive and delete themselves after the specified time. As a rule, they last no longer than one year. This enables us to present filehorst.de in a more user-friendly, effective and secure manner and, for example, to display information on the site that is specifically tailored to your interests. However, we only set one cookie across all cookies that contains any personal data at all. It is called ablgtan and is technically necessary to enable you as a registered user to log in. The information it contains is stored in a form that can only be interpreted by filehorst.

Our legitimate interest in the use of cookies pursuant to Art 6 (1) p. 1 f) DSGVO is to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure.

The following data and information are stored in the cookies:

  • Log-in information (in a form that can only be interpreted by filehorst)
  • The acceptance of our cookie policy
  • The setting whether you prefer HTTP or HTTPS links
  • Hiding our donation information
  • ...

Only to provide the log-in function, a cookie is generated that contains a unique identification number. This can only be linked to your filehorst account by us on the server. This allows us to recognize that you have already logged in. The setting of this cookie is mandatory for technical and security reasons. Therefore, there is also a legitimate interest in the use of this cookie according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) DSGVO.

We work together with advertising networks that help to finance our offer. Therefore, when you visit our website, connections to partner companies are also established and third-party cookies are stored on your hard drive - provided that you have actively given us your consent via our cookie consent banner. You can find more information about the processing of your data on this basis in the cookie consent banner itself. As a rule, these are temporary cookies that are automatically deleted after the specified time. Cookies from advertising partners are usually deleted after a few days or up to 24 months, in individual cases even after several years.

You can - in addition to the settings in the cookie consent banner - if necessary set your browser so that you are informed in advance about the setting of cookies and can decide in individual cases whether you want to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally, or that cookies are prevented completely. However, this may limit the functionality of the website. In addition, you can delete already stored cookies at any time using the privacy settings of your browser. You can also usually prevent the setting of cookies from our advertising partners with the usual adblockers. Adblockers are available as add-ons (browser extensions) for all common browsers.

An up-to-date overview of all contents of our cookie consent banner (and thus all potentially set cookies, connections to external partners and the like) can be found at the very bottom of the privacy policy.

2.4 E-mail contact

If you contact us (e.g. via contact form or email), we store your data for processing the request and in case follow-up questions arise. This is also our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) DSGVO. We only store and use further personal data if you consent to this or if this is legally permissible without special consent.

2.5 Storage duration

Unless specifically stated, we store personal data only as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes pursued.

3 Processing of inventory data

Furthermore, we process inventory data described below.

3.1 User account

To enjoy the benefits of a user account, you can register by entering personal data on filehorst.de. For the new registration we collect an e-mail address and access data (username and password). These data are necessary to verify the user account and to protect it from access by third parties. This is also our legitimate interest in the use according to Art 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) DSGVO.

In order to ensure your proper registration and to prevent unauthorized registrations by third parties, you will receive an activation link by e-mail after your registration to activate your account. Only after successful registration do we permanently store the data transmitted by you in our system.

Once you have created a user account, you can have it deleted by us at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates. A notification in text form to the contact data mentioned in section 1 (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this purpose. We will then delete your stored personal data, insofar as we do not have to store them due to statutory retention obligations.

3.2 Newsletter

We at filehorst.de send out various types of circulars by e-mail to registered users.

a) Donation circulars
We send out donation circulars to finance filehorst.de. The receipt of these "donation circulars" represents your consideration for the free use of filehorst.de and is therefore permitted without consent. This will be clearly pointed out to all users during registration. You can stop receiving these donation circulars by deleting your user account at filehorst.de. However, it is also possible to restrict or unsubscribe from parts of the donation circulars without deleting the user account. The donation financing of filehorst.de as a free offer represents our legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO.

b) Standard Rundschreiben
Our standard newsletter only includes information that we believe is in your best interest not to miss. We limit ourselves to the essentials, e.g. announcements of new features and requests for your satisfaction.

c) Supplementary circular
The supplementary circular is a supplement to the standard circular. It contains, for example, seasonal greetings or further information about filehorst.de.

In order to be able to send you standard and supplementary newsletters, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. Only if you have previously expressly confirmed that you wish to receive these newsletters, we will send you an activation e-mail and ask you to confirm that you wish to receive our newsletters by clicking on a link contained in this e-mail. You may cancel your registration at any time without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the prime rates. A message in text form to the contact data mentioned under point 1 (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this purpose. Of course, you will also find an unsubscribe link in every newsletter and an unsubscribe option under "My Account".

3.3 Storage duration

Unless specifically stated, we store personal data only as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes pursued or as required by law.

4 Your rights as a person affected by data processing

4.3 Right to erasure ("right to be forgotten")

You have the right under Article 17(1) of the GDPR to request that we delete personal data concerning you without undue delay, and we are obliged to delete personal data without undue delay if one of the following reasons applies:

  1. The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.

4.4 Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request us to restrict processing if one of the following conditions is met:

  1. You dispute the accuracy of the personal data for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the personal data,
  2. the processing is unlawful and you refuse the erasure of the personal data and have instead requested the restriction of the use of the personal data;

  4. you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, as long as it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of our company outweigh yours.

4.5 Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and you have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from us, provided that

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) sentence 1 e) or f) DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. We will no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you is unlawful.

5 Data security

We make every effort to ensure the security of your data within the framework of the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities.

Your personal data will be transmitted encrypted. However, we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

To secure your data, we maintain technical and organizational security measures in accordance with Art. 32 DSGVO, which we constantly adapt to the state of the art - to the extent necessary.

We also do not guarantee that our offer will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are carefully backed up on a regular basis.

6 Disclosure of data to third parties, no data transfer to non-EU countries

In principle, we only use your personal data within our company.

In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing ("commissioned processing"), we contractually oblige commissioned processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.

A data transfer to bodies or persons outside the EU outside the cases mentioned in this declaration in number 2 does not take place and is not planned.

Data transfer to entities or persons outside the EU in the context of connections with partner companies such as advertising networks is possible if you actively consent to this via the cookie consent banner.
