This tool establishes direct contact between the networks and users only after users click on one of these buttons.

This tool does not automatically transfer user data to the operators of these platforms. If users are logged into one or more of the social networks, the Like, +1, and Share buttons will display an information window in which the user can edit the text before it is sent.

Our users can share the content of this page on social networks without their providers creating profiles of users' surfing behavior.


Facebook plugins (Like & Share buttons)

Our website includes plugins for the social network Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. The Facebook plugins can be recognized by the Facebook logo or the Like button on our site. For an overview of Facebook plugins, see https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

Google stores both the fact that you have +1'd a piece of content and information about the page you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your +1 can be displayed together with your profile name and photo in Google services, for example in search results or in your Google profile, or in other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet.

Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google + button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used by all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace a different name that you have used to share content via your Google account.

Use of collected data: In addition to the uses mentioned above, the information you provide is used in accordance with the applicable Google data protection policies.

INFOnline

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

Data collection
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 contain reference to a specific, identifiable person will be anonymized as soon as possible.
IP address
Every device needs a unique address, the so-called IP address, to transmit data on the Internet. For technical reasons, the IP address must be stored at least for a short period of time to ensure the functioning of the Internet. IP addresses are shortened before processing and are only processed anonymously. The unabridged IP addresses are not stored or processed.
Geolocalization
The so-called geolocalization, i.e. the allocation of a website visit to the place of the visit, takes place exclusively on the basis of the anonymized IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states/regions. Under no circumstances can the geographical information obtained in such a way be used to draw conclusions about the specific place of residence of a particular user.
Cookie
In order to recognize computer systems, audience measurement uses either a cookie with the ID "ioam.de", a "Local Storage Object," or an anonymous signature, which is created from various automatically transmitted information of your browser. The validity of the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.
Shared Use
To measure shared use (use of a service from different devices), the user ID may be transmitted to INFOnline at login, if available, as an anonymous checksum.
Deletion
The stored usage processes are deleted after 7 months at the latest.
Opt-Out
If you do not wish to participate in the measurement, you can opt out by using the following link: http://optout.ioam.de Additional information on data protection using the measurement technique can be found on the website of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de), which uses the measurement technique, as well as in the Privacy Policy of AGOF (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the Privacy Policy of IVW (http://www.ivw.eu).

Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an AdWords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie by changing your browser settings.

This website uses CleverReach to send newsletters. The supplier is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. CleverReach is a service which organizes and analyzes the distribution of newsletters. The data you provide (e.g. your email address) to subscribe to our newsletter will be stored on CleverReach servers in Germany.

Sending our newsletters with CleverReach enables us to analyze the behavior of newsletter recipients. Among other things, we can find out how many recipients have opened the email containing the newsletter and how often various links contained therein are clicked. With the help of conversion tracking, we can also analyze whether a predefined action (such as the purchase of a product on our website) takes place after clicking on the link in the newsletter. For more information on how data is analyzed by CleverReach, please visit https://www.cleverreach.com/de/funktionen/reporting-und-tracking/.

Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing to the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

If you do not want your usage of the newsletter to be analyzed by CleverReach, you will have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter we send. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.

The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted from our servers and those of CleverReach. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remains unaffected.
