    • Google Account (if the user is signed in to Google, this will be recognised and
    • assigned)

    • Presentation instructions (CSS) and scripts (Javascript) of the website
    • Mouse or touch events within the page

The service uses "cookies" - text files stored on your device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the US and stored there. On this website accesses the IP anonymization. The IP address of users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area.

7. In order to present our content in a correct and graphically appealing way across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, such as: Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font. The call of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and if so for what purposes – that operators of such libraries collect data. The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Automattic Inc. has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov.

7. Use of the scalable central measuring method (SZM)

1. 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 statistically determine the usage intensity, the number of users of a website and the surfing behaviour - 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. Anonymisation of the IP address On the Internet, every device needs a unique address, the so-called IP address, to transmit data. The at least short-term storage of the IP address is technically necessary due to the functioning of the Internet. The IP addresses are abbreviated before any processing and only processed anonymously. The unabridged IP addresses are not stored or processed.

Geolocalization up to the level of the federal states/regions - A so-called geolocalization, i.e. the allocation of a web page call to the place 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. Under no circumstances can the geographical information obtained in this way be used to draw conclusions about the specific place of residence of a user.

Identification number of the device - The range measurement alternatively uses either a cookie with the identification "ioam.de", a "Local Storage Object" or an anonymous signature, which is created from various automatically transmitted information of your browser, to recognise computer systems. The validity of the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.

Login identification - To measure distributed usage (use of a service from different devices), the user ID can be transmitted to INFOnline as an anonymous checksum when logging in, if available.

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

Objection - If you do not wish to participate in the measurement, you can object under the following link: http://optout.ioam.de Further information on data protection in the measurement procedure can be found on the website of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de), which operates the measurement procedure, the data protection website of AGOF (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the data protection website of IVW (http://www.ivw.eu).

 

2. We use the SZM procedure to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the SZM procedure is Section 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.
