User profile information, including photos and nicknames from members, is provided to simplify the interaction with users in the community. In order to facilitate the search for members, we allow users to search for members by criteria like their nicknames, postal codes, and the IT focus, which is specified in the personal profile.

If activated in the users profile, we can use the members email addresses to send notifications of posts, updates, interesting products, recommendations, newsletters or up-to-date information about the service. If users do not want to receive such e-mails, they can switch off these functions in the user profile setting themselves(depending on the type of notification).

From time to time, an Administrator Technology GmbH or a partner sponsored advertising campaign, a raffle or a contest on our website is released. To participate, users may be asked to provide personal information (e.g. name, e-mail address or postal address), or answer questions. If users have explicitly asked for information from a specific advertising partner, we forward their personal data to them. In the case of this data collection the query clearly states who collects the personal data and whose data protection statement is valid.

Administrator Technology GmbH does not disclose any e-mail addresses to third parties.
