No personal data will be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Information, deletion, blocking

Within the framework of the statutory provisions, in particular the European basic data protection regulation (EU-GDSR), you have the following rights: You have the right to receive information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing, as well as the right to correct, block or delete this data. You also have the right to restrict processing and a right to object to processing and a right to data transferability. You can revoke your consent to data processing at any time without affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation. You also have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority.

If you are registered as a user, we also offer you the opportunity to view your data yourself and, if necessary, to delete or change it, in addition to various functions within our website. If, despite our efforts to ensure that data is correct and up-to-date, you should see incorrectly stored information, we will correct it at your request.

When examining an application for the deletion of personal data within the framework of the statutory provisions, we also take into account aspects that may prevent deletion. These include, in particular, mandatory requirements for the operation of the website and its individual functions, the display of crosstables and gamescores and matters that are essential for the pursuit of the Lechenicher SchachServers purpose.

Our websites may contain links to websites of other natural or legal persons to whom this data protection information does not extend.
