1. Storage of data.

The data is saved per user.

The following data is recorded in the ODS statistics in the login:
- Server-IP
- Date and Time
- Modulname (Software)
- current and found Version
- Installation path or sha1 String from path

Server location is Germany.

After deleting the account, all data from it will be deleted! A restore is then only possible via the server backups (max. 3 days), which is a lot of effort and costs money.

2. Profile/Account

There is a charge for using the updates. The use of the program itself is not.
Registration with SoftwareCheck from ODS (OutDated.Software) itself is free.
The account must be confirmed by the mailbox owner via double opt-in.
The user can then unsubscribe from the newsletter via the profile, change his access data (which is saved via sha512 via salted hash), change contact details (= bill recipient), payment reminder settings, etc.

If the user no longer wants to use the service, they can delete their account and all data (server, profile data...) themselves.
The data will be deleted within a few minutes. Then only the server backup of the database is there for 3 days.

4. Privacy

All user data can and may be deleted, changed or temporarily saved by the author if there is a reason (as soon as the user deletes his account, all data is automatically deleted).
If the author changes or deletes data, he will attempt to contact the person concerned from the data record available to him and point out the change.
If the author was unable to reach or contact the person affected, the author cannot be held liable for the resulting consequences.
If there are objections or concerns, the user can contact the author at any time using the above contact details and resolve or clarify any misunderstandings.
It is generally possible to use our website without providing any personal data. As far as personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. No data will be passed on.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating via email) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible. (A certificate is offered for the login (issued to another domain), which means that the data exchange is encrypted via SSL).
The use of contact details published as part of the imprint obligation by third parties to send unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby expressly prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited advertising information being sent, such as spam emails.

So-called session cookies are set on some pages so that, for example, the data entered can be written back into the form. These cookies are deleted after sending or when you click on another page within the website or when you close the browser. A random session ID is temporarily stored in the cookies.
When you log in, a cookie is set for authentication, which is deleted via "Logout".

The cookies can also be deleted early and at any time in the browser itself or the setting of them can be blocked!
In addition, the standard logs of the Apache web server (ip, url, browser, date...) are stored anonymously for around 7 days to generate statistics and then automatically deleted.
In the event of attacks (DDOS, SQL injection, RFI, LFI...), the log files with the attackers' IP addresses are forwarded to the police to file a report.

When using the contact form, the IP address is included in the email so that we can report threats or similar insults.

All data specified in the profile can be deleted by the user after logging in. These are automatically deleted shortly afterwards and after 3 days, when the server backups have been overwritten, they no longer exist and can no longer be restored.
