This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, text files that are saved to the user’s computer and facilitate the analysis of website use. The information created by the cookie about the user’s interaction with this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, the user’s IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or, in other contractual states, within the European Economic Area.
In exceptional cases, the full IP address may be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymisation has been activated on this website. Google will use this information to evaluate the user’s use of this website, create reports about website activities and carry out further services related to internet use on behalf of the website operator.
The IP address transferred by Google Analytics from your browser will not be added to any other Google data. The user can prevent the saving of cookies by altering the settings in their browser software; this website must make the user aware, however, that they will not be able to fully use all the website’s functions if they do so. The user can also prevent the collection of the data created by the cookie regarding their use of the website (including their IP address), its transfer to Google and its processing by Google by downloading and installing the browser-plugin available here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Use of Facebook Social Plugins
This website uses social plugins (‘plugins') provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (‘Facebook’). The plugins can be identified by the Facebook logo (a white ‘f’ on a blue background, the term ‘like’ or the ‘thumbs up’ symbol) and may be labelled ‘Facebook social plugin’. You can see a list and examples of Facebook social plugins’ appearance here: developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. When a user visits a page on this website that contains a plugin, there is a direct connection between their browser and Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is transferred directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website by Facebook. The operator has no influence on the scope of data that Facebook collects using this plugin and therefore informs the user of the extent of their knowledge:
By connecting to the plugin, Facebook receives the information that a user has visited the relevant website page. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook is able to allocate the site visit to their Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, such as by clicking the ‘like’ button or leaving a comment, the relevant information shall be transferred directly to Facebook from your browser and saved there. If a user does not have a Facebook account, it is still possible for Facebook to find out and save their IP address. According to Facebook, IP addresses are only saved in an anonymised form in Germany. The purpose and scope of data collection, further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as related rights and setting options to protect the user’s privacy, can be found in Facebook’s data protection policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
If a user has a Facebook account but does not want Facebook to gather information about them via this website and allocate this website visit to other member data, they must log out of Facebook before visiting this website. You can find more information on settings and contesting the use of data for advertising purposes within your Facebook profile settings: www.facebook.com/settings.
+1 Interface by Google+
This website uses the ‘+1’ interface operated by the social network Google Plus, operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (‘Google’). The button can be identified by the ‘+1’ symbol on a white or coloured background. If a user accesses a page on this website containing this interface, their browser will create a direct connection with Google servers. The content of the ‘+1’ interface will be directly transferred to the browser by Google and integrated into this webpage. Therefore, the operator has no influence on the scope of data collected by Google via this interface. According to Google, no personal data will be collected if the user does not click on the interface. Such data, including IP address, will only be collected and processed if a member is logged in. Users can find out more about the purpose and scope of Google’s data collection, further processing and use as well as setting options to protect their privacy in Google’s data protection policy for the ‘+1’ interface: www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html and their FAQs: www.google.com/intl/de/+1/button/.
This website uses the Twitter interface. These interfaces are provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They can be identified by terms such as ‘Twitter’ and ‘follow’ in combination with a stylised blue bird. This interface makes it possible to share an entry or page on this website on Twitter and to follow the provider on Twitter. When a user visits a page on this website containing this button, there is a direct connection between their browser and Twitter’s servers. The content of the Twitter interface is transferred directly from Twitter to the user’s browser. The operator has no influence on the scope of data that Twitter collects using this plugin, and therefore informs the user of the extent of their knowledge. Afterwards, the user’s IP address and the URL of the relevant website page will be transferred in relation to the button, but not for any other purposes than to display the button.
