COOKIES

The Internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you have requested (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behavior) are stored, these are treated separately in this privacy policy.

SERVER LOG FILES

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

CONTACT FORM

If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your data from the inquiry form including the contact data you provided there will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

We use the data entered for this purpose only for the purpose of using the respective offer or service for which you have registered.

GOOGLE ADWORDS AND GOOGLE CONVERSION TRACKING

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").

Within the framework of Google AdWords, we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser stores on the user's computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify the user. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked across AdWords customers' websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

This allows the effectiveness of the Facebook ads to be evaluated for statistical and market research purposes and future advertising measures to be optimized.

The collected data is anonymous for us as the operator of this website, we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, according to the Facebook data usage policy. This allows Facebook to enable the placement of advertisements on Facebook pages as well as outside of Facebook. This use of the data cannot be influenced by us as the site operator.

9. VG WORT

COOKIES AND MESSAGES ON ACCESS NUMBERS

We use "session cookies" from VG Wort, Munich, to measure access to texts in order to record the probability of copying. Session cookies are small units of information that a provider stores in the RAM of the visitor's computer. A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. In addition, a cookie contains information about its origin and the storage period. Session cookies cannot store any other data.

These measurements are performed by INFOnline GmbH according to the Scalable Central Measurement Method (SZM). They help determine the copying probability of individual texts for the purpose of compensating authors and publishers for legal claims. We do not collect any personal data via cookies.

We thereby enable our authors to participate in the distributions of the VG Wort, which ensure the statutory remuneration for the uses of copyrighted works in accordance with § 53 UrhG. It is also possible to use our offers without cookies. Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser to notify you as soon as cookies are sent.

PRIVACY STATEMENT ON THE USE OF THE SCALABLE CENTRALIZED MEASUREMENT SYSTEM

Our website uses the measurement procedure ("SZMnG") of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de) to determine statistical characteristic values about the use of our offerings. The aim of reach measurement is to determine the intensity of use, the number of users of a website and the surfing behavior statistically - on the basis of a uniform standard procedure - and thus to obtain values that are comparable across the market. For web offerings that are members of the Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. (IVW - http://www.ivw.eu) or participate in the studies of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. (AGOF - http://www.agof.de), the usage statistics are published regularly by the AGOF and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e.V. (agma - http://www.agma-mmc.de), as well as the IVW, and can be viewed on the respective websites.

Data processing

INFOnline GmbH collects and processes data in accordance with German data protection law. Technical and organizational measures ensure that individual users cannot be identified at any time. Data that may have a reference to a specific, identifiable person is anonymized as soon as possible.

Anonymization of the IP address

On the Internet, every device needs a unique address, the so-called IP address, to transmit data. The storage of the IP address, at least for a short time, is technically necessary due to the way the Internet works. The IP addresses are shortened before any processing and are only processed anonymously. No storage or processing of the untruncated IP addresses takes place.

Geolocation up to the level of federal states / regions

A so-called geolocalization, i.e. the assignment of a website call to the location of the call, takes place exclusively on the basis of the anonymized IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states / regions. The geographical information obtained in this way cannot be used to draw any conclusions about the specific place of residence of a user.

Identification number of the device

Reach measurement alternatively uses either a cookie with the identifier "ioam.de", a "Local Storage Object" or an anonymous signature created from various automatically transmitted information from your browser to recognize computer systems. The validity of the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.

Login ID

In order to measure distributed usage (use of a service from different devices), the user ID at login, if available, can be transmitted to INFOnline as an anonymized checksum.

Deletion

The stored usage processes are deleted after 7 months at the latest.

Opposition

If you do not wish to participate in the measurement, you can object at the following link: http://optout.ioam.de

Further information on data protection in the measurement process can be found on the website of INFOnline GmbH, which operates the measurement process, the data protection website of AGOF and the data protection website of IVW.
