Principles of Data Processing

Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, age, address, phone number, date of birth, email address, IP address, or user behavior. Information that we can not relate to your person (or only with disproportionate effort), e.g. by anonymizing the information, are not personal information. The processing of personal data (e.g. collecting, querying, using, storing or transmitting) always requires a legal basis or your consent. Processed personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and no legally required retention requirements have to be maintained.

If we process your personal data for the purpose of providing certain offers, we will subsequently inform you of the specific transactions, the scope and purpose of the data processing, the legal basis for the processing and the respective retention period.

Use of This Websites

When you use this websites, we may create log files that contain the date and time, the retrieved URL path, the referrer (if applicable) and the browser used. However, we anonymize your IP address using IP masking, so that we do not collect any personal data.

Use of the Online Converter

When you enter text in the the input field entitled “Traditional spelling” at https://www.lytspel.org and press the “Convert” button, the entered text will be sent to our web server. There it is automatically converted into the reformed Lytspel spelling and both the original and the converted text are sent back to your web browser. While being processed on the server, the text is only stored in memory, never on disk. At our side, no person will ever look at the text or get any information about its contents. The only thing we may log (in addition to the general information mentioned above) is the number of characters in the original and the converted text (that is, the length of the text).

When you select a file to upload and convert and press the “Convert file” button, a copy of the selected file will be sent to our web server. There it is automatically converted into the reformed Lytspel spelling and the converted file is sent back to your web browser. For technical reason, both the original and the converted file are stored on disk until the converted file has been downloaded by you and possibly for a short additional period of time; however, no file is ever stored for more than one hour. At our side, no person will ever look at the files or get any information about their contents. The only things we may log (in addition to the general information mentioned above) are the number of characters in the original and the converted file as well as the file extension (e.g. “txt” or “html”).
