Who we are

This website is operated by the German Windsurfing Association e.V. (DWSV). Our website address is: https://rentandbuy.dwsv.net.

The German Windsurfing Association e.V. (DWSV) respects the privacy of every person who visits our website. The protection and security of your personal data are of the utmost importance to DWSV. We treat your personal data confidentially and handle your data with care and only use it when absolutely necessary. The data of the members of the DWSV are not sold to third parties. The DWSV is subject to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the legal provisions of the Federal Republic of Germany, in particular the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).
The DWSV points out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.

Gathering of General Information

When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically recorded. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, and similar. This is exclusively information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. This information is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this type is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our website and the technology behind it.

Personal and club-related data of the DWSV

We would like to point out that the DWSV complies with the Federal Data Protection Act and, in accordance with § 28 BDSG, collects, processes and uses personal data exclusively for its own purposes and collects data only for the purpose for which it is also used. The DWSV undertakes to use the data collected only as a means of fulfilling its own statutory tasks and for scientific purposes.

Users have the right to request information about the personal data stored about them free of charge. In addition, you have the right to correction, block, and deletion of this personal data in accordance with the statutory provisions.


If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. A transfer to third parties does not take place. A comparison of the data collected in this way with data that may be collected by other components of the offer does not take place either.

Data entered in forms that you have called up or downloaded from our website are not stored online by the provider or transmitted to them online. Only when you send the completed form to the provider by post or email will the data then be accepted and processed and used for the specific purpose.


DWSV will keep your data safe and take all technical, organizational, and precautionary measures to protect your data from loss, misuse and manipulation.

Deletion or blocking of the data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as provided for by the various storage periods provided for by the legislature. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection

You have the right to receive information about your personal data stored by us at any time. You also have the right to correction, blocking or, apart from the prescribed data storage for business transactions, deletion of your personal data. You can make changes or revoke your consent by notifying us with effect for the future.
