Hallo VFR-Freunde. Die Datenschutz-Grundverordnung, die seit Freitag, 25.5.2018 in Kraft ist, überschwemmt die Medien wie eine Sturmflut. Deswegen habe ich im "Smalltalk" ein Diskussions-Thema eröffnet. Fragen, Anregungen oder sonstiges sind herzlich willkommen. ;-)

A comparison of the data collected in this way with data that may be collected by other components of our site does not take place either. Registration assigns a "User ID" to your user name. This "User-ID" is generated by the forum and is used to identify posts, personal notes (PN), pictures, etc.
