Liability for Contents
As service provider, I am liable for own contents of these websites according to paragraph 7, section 1 German Telemedia Act (TMG). However, according to paragraphs 8 to 10 German Telemedia Act (TMG), service providers are not obligated to permanently monitor submitted or stored information or to search for evidences that indicate illegal activities.
Legal obligations to removing information or to blocking the use of information remain unchallenged. In this case, liability is only possible at the time of knowledge about a specific violation of law. Illegal contents will be removed immediately at the time I get knowledge of them.
Liability for Links
My offer includes links to external third-party websites. I have no influence on the contents of those websites, therefore I cannot guarantee for those contents. Providers or administrators of linked websites are always responsible for their own contents.
The linked websites have been checked for possible violations of law at the time of the establishment of the link. Illegal contents were not detected at the time of the linking. A permanent monitoring of the contents of linked websites cannot be imposed without reasonable indications that there has been a violation of law.

General information and mandatory information
I take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Hence, I handle your personal data as confidential information and in compliance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
Personal data comprises data that can be used to personally identify you. This data protection declaration explains which data I collect as well as the purposes I use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the information is collected.
I herewith advise you that the transmission of data via the Internet (e.g. via email) may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data against third-party access.
Information about the responsible party (referred to as the "controller" in the GDPR)
The data processing controller on this website is:Alexander Haffer
For the full address and contact information, see the legal notice above.
The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).
Revocation of your consent to the processing of data
A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given me. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (article 21 GDPR)
In the event that data are processed on the basis of article 6 section 1 literal e or f GDPR, you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your personal data based on grounds arising from your unique situation. This also applies to any profiling based on these provisions. To determine the legal basis, on which any processing of data is based, please consult this data protection declaration. If you log an objection, I will no longer process your affected personal data, unless I am in a position to present compelling protection worthy grounds for the processing of your data, that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if the purpose of the processing is the claiming, exercising or defence of legal entitlements (objection pursuant to article 21 section 1 GDPR).
If your personal data is being processed in order to engage in direct advertising, you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your affected personal data for the purposes of such advertising. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is affiliated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for direct advertising purposes (objection pursuant to article 21 section 2 GDPR).
Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.
Right to data portability
You have the right to demand that I hand over any data I automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.
SSL and/or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to me as the website operator, this website uses a SSL encryption program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from "http://" to "https://" and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to me cannot be read by third parties.
Information about, rectification and eradication of data
Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified or eradicated. If you have questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.
Right to demand processing restrictions
You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact me at any time. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in the following cases:
- In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by me, I will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to demand that I restrict the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
- If I do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its eradication.
- If you have raised an objection pursuant to article 21 section 1 GDPR, your rights and my rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.
Recording of data on this website
Server log files
The aforementioned host automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser communicates to the server automatically. The information comprises:
- the type and version of browser used
- the used operating system
- referrer URL
- the hostname of the accessing computer
- the time of the server inquiry
- the IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
This data is recorded on the basis of article 6 section 1 literal f GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the technically error free depiction and the optimization of the operator's website. In order to achieve this, server log files must be recorded.
Request by email or telephone
If you contact me by email or telephone, your request, including all resulting personal data (name, request) will be stored and processed by me for the purpose of processing your request. I do not pass these data on without your consent.
These data are processed on the basis of article 6 section 1 literal b GDPR if your inquiry is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is required for the performance of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the data are processed on the basis of my legitimate interest in the effective handling of inquiries submitted to me (article 6 section 1 literal f GDPR) or on the basis of your consent (article 6 section 1 literal a GDPR) if it has been obtained.
The data sent by you to me via contact requests remain with me until you request me to delete, revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses (e.g. after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.
Contents and compilations published on my websites are subject to German copyright laws. Reproduction, editing, distribution as well as the use of any kind outside the scope of the copyright law require my written permission. Downloads and copies of my websites are permitted for private use only.
The commercial use of my contents without my written permission is prohibited.
Copyright laws of third parties are respected as long as the contents on my websites do not originate from me. Contributions of third parties on this site are indicated as such. However, if you notice any violations of copyright law, please let me know. Such contents will be removed immediately.
Data processing through social networks and gaming platforms
I maintain publicly available profiles in social networks (such as Twitch, Twitter, ...) and gaming platforms (such as Steam, GoG.com, ...).
These platforms can generally analyze your user behavior comprehensively if you visit their website or a website with integrated content (e.g. like buttons or banner ads). When you visit my profile pages, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations may be triggered. In detail: If you have created an account and are logged in to it while visiting my profile pages, the operator of the platform can assign this visit to your account. Under certain circumstances, your personal data may also be recorded if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective platform. In this case, this data is collected, for example, via cookies stored on your device or by recording your IP address. Using the data collected in this way, the operators of the platform can create user profiles in which their preferences and interests are stored. This way you can see interest-based advertising inside and outside of your platform presence. If you have an account with the platform, interest-based advertising can be displayed on any device you are logged in to or have logged in to.
Data transmission to the United States of America is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European Commission.
My platform appearances are to ensure a wider presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of article 6 (1) literal f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the platforms may be based on divergent legal bases to be specified by the operators of the platforms (e.g. consent within the meaning of article 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
Responsibility and assertion of rights
If you visit one of my profile pages (e.g. Twitter), I, together with the operator of the platform, am responsible for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. You can in principle protect your rights (information, correction, deletion, limitation of processing, data portability and complaint) vis-à-vis me as well as vis-à-vis the operator of the respective platform.
Please note that despite the shared responsibility with the social media portal operators, I do not have influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals.
The data collected directly from me via the platforms will be deleted from my systems as soon as the purpose for their storage lapses, you ask me to delete it, you revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses. Stored cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular, retention periods - remain unaffected.
I have no control over the storage duration of your data that are stored by the platform operators for their own purposes. For details, please contact the social network operators directly.
