We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it. In order to implement this protection in the best possible way, we allow ourselves to give you an overview of the technical background of the storage of data, the administration and the use of your data in this data protection declaration.

By using the website, you confirm that you agree to the provisions of this data protection declaration and thus accept them. If you do not want to accept this data protection declaration, we ask you not to enter any personal data on this website.

Cookie settings

1. Subject of this data protection declaration

In this declaration you will find out how we treat personal data that becomes known to us when you use this website and specifically the quiz software.

2. Collection and Use of Data

2.1 Registration to enjoy the benefits of being a registered player

If you decide to register on, all you have to do is provide your name and email address. The name can be any nickname or pseudonym. It just mustn't be in our database yet. The e-mail address, on the other hand, must exist and be valid. Because after the entry, the automatically generated password is sent there. This data is stored in a MySQLi database on our server.

As additional/optional information about your account, you can also enter your country and your gender. This data is only for statistical purposes and is only used for analysis and helps us to further develop our quiz software.

Each account also has its own profile page. You can set this to "public" (everyone can see your profile), "only your friends" or to "only me" (i.e. only you and the system administrators). And last but not least, you can switch the e-mail notifications for the newsletter or a friend request on or off.

All of the above data and configuration settings are stored in a MySQLi database on our server.

To give your profile a face, you have the option of uploading a picture as a so-called avatar. You may only upload royalty-free images or images that you own! By uploading an image, you agree that we may also use the image publicly on the entire homepage or in the quiz, especially on the high score lists.

Data storage of a registered account:

Your password is stored with one-way encryption. It cannot be decrypted. The e-mail address, on the other hand, is stored in plain text but is not visible to anyone (except the system administrators).

A database entry looks something like this:

|3|Dummy|$2y$10$JglrHjvgomMlsrXs3O.0..yiPr.MlkEAaYRHt5v1lk9PK6Au6QGRW|| |en|male|1,1,1,1,1|1346350088|0|user|0|0|0| | |1| |0| |0

2.2 Support form

We collect personal data via this website if you contact us via our support form. Here you will be asked to enter your name, your e-mail address and the actual message. We ask for your name because we want to address you personally. The e-mail address so that our reply can be delivered. The actual message, because an 'empty' message doesn't make much sense.

In addition, we use a security code query, a so-called Captcha. Here, a random character string is generated, encrypted and temporarily stored in a file on the web server together with the time stamp and the encrypted IP address. The IP address is encoded with a one-way encryption and cannot be decrypted again. If the contact form is called up by any visitor, every Captcha entry is checked. If an entry is longer than 5 minutes in the past, it will be irrevocably deleted.

Such an entry could look something like this:


Registered players only have to write the message themselves (if they are logged in).

The e-mails with all data (text, name, e-mail address, etc.) are stored on our local computer (not on the server) for some time (as long as the problem is being solved). After that (after 6 months at the latest) the e-mails will be completely deleted.

2.3 Player Analysis

Um dir eine bestmögliche Nutzerfreundlichkeit mit der Quiz Software zu bieten ist es notwendig das Spielverhalten der Nutzer zu kennen. Was wird am meisten gespielt, welche Systeme (Browser, Betriebssystem,...) nutzen die Spieler. Welche Sprache wird bevorzugt. Und so weiter. Je mehr wir wissen umso besser können wir unsere Spiele darauf optimieren.

Important: No IP address is stored in plain text, but encoded with a one-way encryption. This cannot be decrypted again.
