Data Protection

Data protection policy at Mister Wong conforms to the general data protection regulations in the German Federal Data Protection Act ('BDSG') and the German Telemedia Act ('TMG') for the individual use of combinable data such as characters, images and sounds and for the offering and use of information and communication services directed at the public comprising text, sound and images.

The collection, processing and use of your personal data is based on the strict provisions of German data protection law, the policies being data avoidance, data transparency, and data security. The data collected is processed and used by Mister Wong and its cooperating partners only to the extent that this is necessary, legally permissible, and desired by yourself for the fulfillment of contracts concluded with you and maintenance of customer relations resulting therefrom.

Inasmuch as the website provides an opportunity to enter personal or business data (email addresses, names, postal addresses) the disclosure of such data by the user is on an explicitly voluntary basis. Entries made must be truthful. Use of all services offered is also permitted without entering such data or by entering anonymized data or a pseudonym, provided it is technically possible and reasonable. The misuse of names belonging to a natural person or legal entity or any other legally protected names is not permitted and can lead to closure of the user account.

Mister Wong issues to registered users a weekly status email (Wong Letter) containing statistics, recommendations for matching users and links, as well as information about new functions and extensions, if any. Subscriptions to the Wong Letter can be cancelled at any time by accessing the menu item "Profile".

Use of the contact data published as site owner information or comparable details, e.g. postal addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, and email addresses by third parties for mailing information that has not been explicitly requested is not allowed. We reserve the right to take legal steps against senders of so-called spam mail if this prohibitive clause is violated.

Whenever the Mister Wong website is accessed, a data record is stored on the web server. This data record consists of data that is required in order to handle the user session properly. In the case of unregistered users these data records are evaluated for internal, statistical purposes only. No data concerning unregistered users is passed on to external third parties. With each page impression access data is also stored in a log file. These log files provide information about your IP address, the remote host, the time of day, the status, any data quantity transferred, and the website from which the user arrived on the Mister Wong website, as well as product/version information concerning the browser being used.

In addition we hereby inform all users of our website that Mister Wong uses so-called cookies to manage user sessions. Cookies are small files that are stored on the respective user's computer for the duration of the session. Session management is not possible without cookies.

Personal data is only collected with your knowledge and your consent having been given by means of checkbox confirmation upon registration as a user. Upon informal request you can obtain free information about the personal data stored concerning you and you can also request deletion of your data at any time, either in writing or in the form of an email.
