Data protection

The owners of this private and non-commercial family genealogy site take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy. Genealogy details of living and deceased persons are, for privacy purposes, visible only to logged-in site users. Password protected user accounts are only supplied to family members upon application to and approval from the site administrator. Personal information is only used for creating family trees. Details of living and deceased persons are not sold or shared with third parties for any purposes, and this site does not carry out any marketing to companies nor to individuals.

The use of our website is not possible without providing personal data. When personal information is requested (for example name and email address on the Contact form), this is, however, given voluntarily. This data will never be passed on to third parties.

We point out that sending information over the Internet is subject to security issues. Complete protection of the data from being accessed by third parties is not possible. We have, however, installed a "public-key" certificate from Let's Encrypt, the public key is regenerated periodically and we have aktivated SSL (https) for more secure data transfer to and from the site.
