Terms of Use and Privacy

1 Introduction

The content of this website is developed by many brothers and sisters together. Dealing with the Word of God is of central concern for us. The thoughts published in our various articles spring from our common discussions about the Bible.

In accordance with the biblical concept of church, there is no church leader among us but we all share the responsibility for what we believe. What God gives to all of us is written down by several brothers and sisters. That is why you will not find the names of any specific authors in our articles.

Naturally, we do not want to remain anonymous. We created this website with the wish to get in touch with anyone who honestly seeks God.

2 Terms of Use

We welcome the use of the articles on this website for personal study and group discussion. The ideas and conclusions in each article belong together. Therefore, we encourage you to read each text in its entirety to avoid any misunderstanding.

3 Privacy

The policy of running our website complies with the requirements of the European General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR).

You can visit our homepage without providing any personal information about yourself. We do not record your location information, neither do we track you in any other way. We do not use cookies except those Google Analytics does for analysing traffic to our site (see below in section 3.2).

3.1 Handling of Emails Sent by You

We ensure that if you write to us, your email’s content and any personal information you share therein (including your email address, phone number, address etc.) will be treated confidentially and will not be revealed to any third party. Needless to say, you will not receive any spam from us, nor will you be subscribed to any mailing lists.

In our experience, electronic correspondence with our site’s visitors may last several months. Therefore, we may store your emails in our account for a period of maximum 1 year. Emails older than this are deleted from our account and are not stored in any other way (e.g. printed). That is the standard policy we run. However, we definitely delete your emails even earlier upon your written (email) notice to do so.

3.2 Traffic Analysis

Our website runs the free version of Google Analytics, a webtraffic-analysing service operated by Google Inc. as a third party. You may find the description of the service and its privacy guidelines on https://www.google.com/analytics/

Google Analytics records and analyses the traffic to our website. We use the analysis exclusively for optimizing and developing our website. Google Analytics is set up in a way that complies with the European General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR). Accordingly, IP-address-anonymisation is enabled and no collection of personal data is done.
