If you choose to contact us by email, we use your email address only to reply to you; we never contact you after such reply (unless you reply to us or contact us again). We do not archive your emails and do not keep a database of everyone who has contacted us.
Information about Cookies
ImprovEncyclopedia.org does not store cookies on your computer. We do use Google Adwords for advertising, which may store cookies on your computer. Read on to learn more about this.
Cookies are very small text files used by Internet pages, which your browser stores on your computer and which provide certain information from the place where the cookie is set (here by us). Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer.
Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. This particularly includes session cookies. Session cookies store a session ID, with which different requests from your browser can be assigned to the common session. This means that your computer can be recognized when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.
Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies at any time in your browser’s security settings.
You can set your Internet browser to inform you when a web server wants to send you a cookie. You can then either accept or refuse the cookie. You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and refuse the acceptance of third party cookies or all cookies, for example. Please note that you may not be able to use all functions of this website if you disable cookies. You can find out more about this in the help system of your Internet browser.

Data Deletion Requests
Since we do not store any user data, a data deletion request is kind of pointless. EU GDPR does force us to provide you with a way to demand an inventory of your data we keep, and a means for you to request to delete it. Both can be done by email via our contact page.
