Privacy

Your privacy is valued and any personal details you submit to the Site, such as your name and email address, will not be used for any other purposes than to contact you in case a message from you requires a reply. The Site will take reasonable technical and organisational precautions to prevent the loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. The Site will securely store any personal information you provide.

Like many other websites, the Site uses Google Analytics to analyse the use of the site. Google Analytics generates statistical and other information about website use by means of cookies, which are stored on client computers. The information generated relating to the Site is used to create reports about the use of the website. Google will store and use this information. Google's privacy policy is available at: http://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html.

The Site publishes Google Adsense advertisements on this website. These are tailored by Google to reflect your interests. To determine the latter, Google will track your behaviour across the web using cookies. You can view, delete or add interest categories associated with your browser using Google's Ads Preference Manager, available at: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences. You can opt-out of the Adsense partner network cookie at: http://www.google.com/privacy_ads.html. However, this opt-out mechanism uses a cookie, and if you clear the cookies from your browser your opt-out will not be maintained. To ensure that an opt-out is maintained in respect of a particular browser, you should use the Google browser plug-in available at: http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/plugin.

The Site uses the +1 interface provided by the social network, Google Plus, which is operated by Google. When you open a page on the Site that includes the respective button, your browser will establish a direct connection with a Google server. The content of the +1 button is conveyed directly to your browser by Google and integrated into the website by your browser. The Site therefore does not have any influence on the scope of the data that Google is able to capture via this button. According to Google if you do not click on the button, no personal data will be captured. Data, including the IP address, is only captured and processed from members who are signed in to their account. Information about the purpose and extent of capturing this data and the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your respective rights and options to protect your personal privacy can be found in Google’s data privacy notifications about the +1 button. http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html, as well as in Google’s Data Privacy Policies (https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy). If you are a Google Plus member and do not want Google to collect data about you via the Site and link it with your membership data that is stored by Google, you must sign out of your Google Plus account before visiting the Site.

The Site contains plug-ins for the social network, Facebook. You will recognise Facebook plug-ins by the Facebook logo or the “Like” buttons on the Site. When you visit the Site, the plug-in establishes a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. This enables Facebook to know that you have visited their website. If you click the Facebook “Like” button while you are signed in to your Facebook account, you can link the content of the Site to your Facebook profile. This means that Facebook can allocate this interaction with our website to your user account. The Site does not receive any notification about the content of the conveyed data or how it is used by Facebook. Further information about this topic can be found in the Facebook Data Privacy Statement (http://www.facebook.com/policy.php). If you do not want Facebook to be able to allocate your use of the Site to your Facebook user account, please sign out of your Facebook account.

Various functions offered by Twitter are integrated into this Site. Using Twitter and the function called "Tweet" enables websites that you have visited to be linked to your Twitter account and made available to other users. In the process, data is conveyed to Twitter. The Site does not obtain any knowledge about the content of the conveyed data or how it is used by Twitter. Please find more information about this in the Twitter Data Privacy Statement (http://twitter.com/privacy). You can change your data privacy settings in Twitter by going to http://twitter.com/account/settings.
