II. DEFINITIONS

 

This privacy policy uses the definitions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

 

“Personal data” is any information concerning an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, men-tal, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

 

“Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisa-tion, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmis-sion, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

 

“Restriction of processing” means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.

 

“Profiling” means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of per-sonal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

 

“Pseudonymisation” means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisa-tional measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natu-ral person.

“Controller” means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the con-troller or the specific criteria for his nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

 

“Processor” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

 

“Recipient” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may re-ceive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients. The processing of this data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules and in accordance with the purposes of the processing.

 

“Third party” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or proces-sor, are authorised to process personal data.

 

“Consent” of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject's wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signi-fies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

  • if we are using the data on the basis of a legitimate interest, for as long as your interest in deletion or anonymisation does not outweigh ours.

Application data for a job as Reader shall be deleted automatically after six months, provided no con-tract has been concluded.

 

 

IX. YOUR RIGHTS

 

You have the right, partly under certain preconditions,

  • To demand information about the processing of your data, as well as to get a copy of your per-sonal data stored with us.

X. CONTACT FORM & E-MAIL CONTACT

 

There is a contact form on our website which can be used for making contact electronically. If a user chooses this option, the data entered into the input mask is transmitted to us and stored here, provid-ed we do not already have this data (because you are logged on to your account). Alternatively, it is possible to make contact using the e-mail address provided. In this case, the user’s personal data that is transmitted together with the e-mail is stored.

 

 

XI. REGISTRATION

 

You can voluntarily open an account on our website by providing the necessary personal data. In this process, data provided by you during registration will be transmitted to us and stored by us, subject to revocation by you. The user can temporarily or permanently close his user account at any time. To do this, the user can simply send a text message (e-mail or letter) stating clearly his intention to close the account. We expressly reserve the right to verify such requests, as well as other customer requests, with regard to their legitimacy, in order to prevent unauthorised use by third parties.

 

 

XII. CONSULTATIONS

 

You can hold consultations with external consultants through our website, using telephone, e-mail, SMS or chat service. All information you exchange with the consultant during the conversation is vol-untary and shall remain confidential. Third parties will not listen in on your conversation.

 

Consultations by telephone will take place via a device connecting the external consultant and the customer. In this process, no personal data will be transmitted to the parties except the customer number. We shall record the conversations, if we are obliged to do so by law. The conversations will be deleted upon expiry of the statutory retention period.

 

 

XIII. EVALUATION

 

You can rate the consultations using the evaluation function on our website, in order to give the con-sultants valuable feedback and to make it easy for other customers to select the right consultants. This is done by giving a rating of 1 to 5 stars via the telephone menu directly after the conversation, or via the website by giving a rating of 1 to 5 stars as well as a text reflecting your experience with the respective consultant.

 

The text evaluations together with the stars awarded will be visible on the public profile of the consult-ant and the HTML site-map, whereby the latest ratings will appear on top of the list. Users will be able to see the heading and text of the rating, the number of stars, the customer’s user name, whether it was a chat or telephone conversation, and the date and rating given.

 

 

XIV. DATA PROTECTION

 

We have taken extensive technical and organisational measures to protect your data against possible threats such as unauthorised access or unauthorised perusal, modification or distribution, as well as against loss, damage or misuse.

 

To protect personal data from access by unauthorised third parties during transmission, we safeguard the data transmissions using SSL-encryption, where possible. This is a standardised encryption pro-cedure for online services, particularly for the web.

 

 

XV. LOG FILES

 

Usage data is transmitted via the respective Internet browser every time you access our website, and this data is stored in log files, so-called server log files. The data records which are stored in the pro-cess contain the following data: The domain from which the user accesses the website; date and time of the request; IP address of the requesting computer, website(s) which the user visits within the con-text of the services offered; data volume transmitted; browser type and version, operating system used, name of the Internet service provider; message indicating whether the request was successful. These log file records are evaluated in an anonymous form in order to improve the service and make it more user-friendly, as well as to find and rectify errors and to control the utilised capacity of servers.

 

 

XVI. COOKIES

 

This website uses so-called cookies. A cookie is a text file with an identification number that is trans-mitted to and stored in the user’s computer during usage of the website, together with other request-ed data. This file is kept there on standby for any subsequent visit to the website and helps to authen-ticate the user. Since cookies are just simple files and not executable programmes, they don’t pose any danger to the computer. Depending on the configuration of the Internet browser selected by the user, the browser will automatically accept cookies. This configuration can, however, be changed and the storage of cookies can be deactivated or set in such a way that the user is notified as soon as a cookie is deposited on the computer. In the event that the use of cookies is deactivated, some func-tions of the website may, however, become unavailable or only partially available. You can prevent the storing of cookies on your computer by our website any time through a relevant adjustment of the settings on your Internet browser, and hence permanently object to the placement of cookies. Cook-ies that are already active on your computer can be deleted any time through the Internet browser or any other software programme. On some occasions we work together with advertising partners, who help us to make our online content more appealing to you. To this end, cookies from our partner companies (third-party cookies) will also be stored on your computer when you visit our website. If we happen to work with the aforementioned advertising partners, you will be personally and specifically informed in the next sections about the use of such cookies and the extent of the information collect-ed in each case.

 

We distinguish between the following types of cookies:

 

First-Party Cookies: First-party cookies are transmitted by the platform just visited.

 

Third-Party Cookies: Third-party cookies are cookies transmitted by a platform/website other than the one visited by the user. If a user accesses a website and another entity transmits a cookie through this website, this will be considered a third-party cookie.

 

Absolutely necessary cookies: These cookies are necessary for you to be able to navigate through the website and use its functions, e.g. to access secure sections of the website. Without these cook-ies, certain services cannot be provided, e.g. display of content tailored to your computer or device.

 

Performance cookies: These cookies generate information regarding the use of the website by the visitors, e.g. which web pages are requested more frequently and whether users get error messages from these web pages. However, these cookies do not gather any information relating to the identity of the visitor. All information collected by these cookies is amalgamated and is therefore anonymous. It is used only to optimise the website.

 

Functionality cookies: These cookies enable the website to store decisions made by you (e.g. lan-guage settings and your region), and to offer you improved and personalised functions. They can also be used to store your settings with regard to font size, fonts and other individualised parts of the web-site. They can also be used to provide services requested by you, e.g. to show a video or to use the comment function of a blog. Information collected by these cookies can be anonymised. Your surfing activities cannot be tracked on other platforms.

 

Social media cookies: These cookies are used when you click on a button on the website for pur-poses of sharing information on social media. The social network will record this action and can use it for marketing or advertising purposes.

 

Marketing / Advertising cookies: These cookies are used to show you adverts that could be rele-vant to you, based on your interests. They are also used to limit the frequency with which a particular advert is being displayed to you. We also use cookies to measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaign. They are placed there by advertising networks with our permission and they record your visit to a website. This information is then passed to other organisations, e.g. advertising providers. Oftentimes marketing and advertising cookies are attached to website functions. Our advertising cookies also enable you to participate in customer surveys and in this way allow us to get feedback from you, so that we can improve your user experience on our website.

 

 

 

XVII. EXTERNAL TOOLS, PARTNERS AND SERVICES

 

 

GOOGLE ANALYTICS

 

TheCircle uses Google Analytics, a services of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This service makes it possible to analyse the use of this website and uses cookies for this. To this end, the information generated by the Cookie, such as your anonymised IP-address, is transmitted on behalf of TheCircle to a server of Google LLC in the USA, stored and eval-uated there. This is so because Google Analytics was given the extension code “gat._anonymizeIp();” on this website. This ensures anonymised collection of IP-addresses. Anonymisation of your IP-address is generally done through the truncating of the IP-address by Google LLC within the Europe-an Union or in other member states of the European Economic Area (EEA). In the context of the Google Analytics-advertising function, remarketing and the reports are used to provide services ac-cording to demographic features and interests. These procedures help align advertising measures more closely with the interests of the respective users, with the help of the information about user behaviour. In the context of remarketing, personalised advertising measures can be displayed on other websites based on your surfing behaviour on the website of TheCircle. In this process, advertis-ing materials can contain products which you have looked at before on the website of TheCircle. Pro-vided you have agreed that your web and App browser history be connected to your Google account and that your Google account be used to personalise advertisements, Google will use this data for remarketing purposes across multiple devices. You can revoke the collection of your data by Google Analytics any time. For this, you have the following possibilities at your disposal:

 

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can prevent the use of cookies by adjusting the relevant settings of the browser software; in this case, however, it may then not be possible to use all functions of the website. The adjustments have to be made separately for each browser used. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection and processing of this data by Google LLC by downloading and installing the browser add-on available through the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. As an alternative, or within browsers on mobile devices, this can be done by clicking on the following link: Deactivating Google Analytics An Opt-Out-Cookie will be stored in the user’s device for the website of TheCircle and be in effect for the browser currently being used. If cookies are deleted in this browser, this link must be clicked again. You can find detailed information about the terms of use and data protection at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html or under https://policies.google.com/.

 

 

GOOGLE TAG MANAGER

 

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed through an interface. Google Tool Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal information is collected. Google Tool Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it remains valid for all tracking tags if they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

 

 

FACEBOOK CUSTOM AUDIENCES

 

This website uses the Facebook Pixel and the "Custom Audiences" function of Facebook Ireland Lim-ited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as: “Facebook”). This function serves the purpose of presenting visitors to this website with advertisements ("Facebook-Ads") based on their interests, within the framework of their visit to the social network provider Facebook. Further-more, the function also makes it possible to display individualised advertising banners in the social network provider Facebook, which can contain products previously viewed by the user on the website of TheCircle (remarketing).

 

For this, the Facebook Pixel was implemented by Facebook on this website. It is through this Pixel that a direct connection to the Facebook servers will be established during your visit to the website. In this process, information will be sent to the Facebook servers to the effect that you have, among oth-er things, visited this website (including information about the type of products you bought and in which quantities), and Facebook will assign this information to your personal Facebook account, if you are a Facebook customer. If you then visit our web pages, a direct connection will be established via the tracking pixel between your browser and the Facebook server. In this way, Facebook will receive information, among others from your browser, that your terminal (e.g. your PC) has accessed our web page. If you are a Facebook user, Facebook can use this information to associate your visit to our web pages with your Facebook account. In the same way, Facebook can in the end recognise whether a Facebook advert was effective – for instance, whether it led to the conclusion of an online purchase. In this regard, we and, if necessary, our cooperation partners, receive only statistical data from Facebook without any reference to a concrete person. This is done to assess the effectiveness of adverts. Tracking using the Pixel is done in a way which does not enable us to identify you as a person, and it marks users as visitors to our website only in a way that is anonymous for us. Face-book uses cookies for this process. Facebook stores and uses the data collected with the help of the Pixel. This happens at least partially also outside the territorial area of applicability of the EU data protection regulations. You can find detailed information about the collection and use of data by Face-book, as well as the rights and possibilities open to you in this regard for the protection of your priva-cy, in Facebook’s data protection guidelines available at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. Alternatively, you can deactivate the “Custom Audiences” remarketing function at https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads#_=_. To do this, you must be logged on to Facebook.

 

 

GOOGLE ADWORDS TRACKING

 

TheCircle Ltd GmbH uses the Conversion-Tracking system of Google Ireland Limited (Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland), being the latter’s advertising customer (“Google Adwords customer”), for purposes of marketing performance measurement. For this pur-pose, a Google Adwords pixel is integrated on each of the registration pages of TheCircle, and this pixel transmits the registration event to Google without any details of the customer concerned – be-sides the common technical features of every website visit (e.g. browser, IP-address). For purposes of recognition and assignment of the users, a cookie will be installed by Google, provided you ac-cessed the website through a Google advert. These cookies will lose their validity after 30 days. Each AdWords user receives a different Cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked via the websites of AdWords users. For further information on data protection at Google, visit https://www.google.com/policies. Besides, users can also deactivate or revoke Google adverts as a whole or in parts at https://privacy.google.com/?hl=de#google-experience (execute Opt-Out).

 

 

GOOGLE RE-MARKETING

 

Using the re-marketing technology from Google Ireland Limited (Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland), users who have already visited websites belonging to The-Circle Ltd will once again be targeted through interest-based advertising on the web pages of the Google’s partner network. In this process, advertising materials can contain products previously viewed by the user on the website of TheCircle (remarketing). To this end, Google remarketing track-ing pixels are integrated on this web page, and these collect and transmit information about user be-haviour on the website (e.g. advisors viewed), the technical features of the visit to the website (e.g. the browser used, IP-address) as well as the purchase behaviour (e.g. last-visited advisors) without reference to any person. Google uses cookies for purposes of recognition and assignment of users. Provided users have agreed that their web and App browser history can be connected to their Google account and that information from their Google account can be used by TheCircle to personalise ad-vertisements that they see on the web, Google will use the data of these registered users together with Google Analytics data to create and define target group lists for remarketing purposes across multiple devices. To support this function, Google Analytics will collect Google-authenticated IDs of these users. This personal data from Google will temporarily be merged with Google Analytics data from TheCircle to form target groups.

 

You can find more information and possibilities concerning the deactivation of this ad placement at https://adssettings.google.com/u/0/authenticated (go to “Ad settings” link, then “Deactivation”).

 

 

MICROSOFT BING ADS

 

In addition, our websites use Conversion Tracking and the Universal Event Tracking from Mi-crosoft (Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA). For this purpose, tracking pixels from Microsoft are integrated on the order confirmation page and on other selected pages of this web shop. When the user visits these web pages, the usual technical infor-mation (such as the operating system, browser used, IP-address) as well as information about the user’s surfing behaviour (e.g. products viewed), is transmitted to Microsoft and stored there. If an order is made, only data without any references to the person, such as the order number, item num-ber and the order value, is transmitted to Microsoft. This information helps evaluate and optimise TheCircle’s advertisements in connection with Microsoft Bing ads programme.

 

For purposes of recognition and assignment of the users, so-called cookies are used, provided you accessed our website through a Microsoft Bing advert. We together with Microsoft Bing can know that someone clicked on an advert and was forwarded to our website. No personal information regarding the identity of the user is disclosed. If you do not wish to take part in the tracking process, you can also reject the placement of a Cookie required for this, through the browser settings, which generally deactivates the automatic installation of cookies. You can find more information about data protection and the installed cookies, as well as the possibility of revocation at Microsoft Bing, on Microsoft’s website: https://privacy.microsoft.com/en-US/privacystatement

 

 

EMARSYS (E-MAIL-MARKETING)

 

Emarsys eMarketing Systems AG (Stralauer Platz 34, 10243 Berlin, Germany; www.emarsys.com/de) is also used in the technical processing of newsletter mailings and is an Austrian enterprise with head-quarters in Berlin, which provides the software and infrastructure for sending consent-based electronic messages. Emarsys is aware of its obligation towards recipients of such messages and has a zero-tolerance policy for spam.

 

Furthermore, Emarsys offers various possibilities of analysing how the despatched newsletters are opened and used, e.g. to how many users an e-mail was sent, whether the e-mails were rejected, and whether the users unsubscribed after receiving the e-mail. These analyses are, however, only group-related and we do not use them to rate individuals.

 

If you don’t wish to continue receiving our newsletter, you can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the relevant link contained in every mailing.

 

For further information on data protection at Emarsys, visit https://www.emarsys.com/en/privacy-policy/.

 

 

HOTJAR

 

We use Hotjar, an essentially tracking-code-based web analysis tool of Hotjar Ltd., Level 2, St Julians Business Centre, 3, Elia Zammit Street, St Julians STJ 1000, Malta. Hotjar helps us to record in an anonymised manner interactions of randomly selected individual visitors to our website. In this way, a record of mouse movements, for example, and clicks is created with the aim of finding ways to im-prove our web content. In addition, Hotjar helps us to evaluate information regarding the operating system, browser, incoming and outgoing referrals (links), geographical origin as well as resolution and the type of terminal accessing our website, for statistical purposes. At the same time, we use Hotjar to allow anonymous user feedback using the so-called “Feedback Pools”. The information collected is not personal; it is stored by Hotjar Ltd. and not shared with third parties. If you do not wish to have website analysis done using Hotjar, you can deactivate this function on all websites which use Hotjar by inserting a DoNotTrack-Header in your browser (opt-out): https://www.hotjar.com/opt-out. You can get supplementary information on the functions and data use in connection with Hotjar at: https://www.hotjar.com/privacy.

 

 

PINGDOM

 

Our website uses Pingdom, a service of the Pingdom AB Company, Kopparbergsvägen 8, 72213 Västeras, Sweden. Pingdom uses, among other things, cookies which are stored on your computer and enable us to analyse how our website is used. In connection with this usage, data such as the IP-address in particular and other data tracking the activities of users is transmitted to a Pingdom AB server and stored there. You can prevent the collection and sharing of your personal data (particularly your IP-address), as well as the processing of this data, by deactivating the running of Java-Script in your browser or by installing a tool like “NoScript”. You can access further information on data protec-tion in connection with the use of Pingdom under the following link: https://www.pingdom.com/legal/privacy-policy.

 

 

SNAPENGAGE

 

This website uses SnapEngage, a Live-Chat-service of SnapEngage, LLC (hereinafter referred to as: “Snapengage”). SnapEngage uses so-called cookies; these are text files which are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of our website. The information generated (including your truncated IP-address), is sent to a server of SnapEngage in the USA and stored there, in order to evaluate your use of the Chats and to provide us with reports (e.g. about the average length of a Chat). SnapEngage will transmit this information to third parties if necessary, provided that this is legally stipulated or as long as third parties shall process this data on behalf of SnapEngage. SnapEn-gage will on no account merge your truncated IP-address with other data from SnapEngage. You can prevent the installation of the cookies by changing the settings in your browser software. We would like to point out, however, that in this case you may be unable to use all of the functions of our web-site fully. By using this website you otherwise agree to the processing of the data collected about you by SnapEngage in the way described above and for the purpose mentioned above. You can get more information via the following link: https://snapengage.com/gdpr-compliant-live-chat/.

 

 

ADJUST

 

We use the services of Adjust, an App analysis service, for analysing the App usage (adjust GmbH, Saarbrücker Str. 38a, 10405 Berlin, Germany). The Adjust service has been tested and certified ac-cording to ePrivacyseal (European Seal for your Privacy) – see http://www.eprivacy.eu/vergebene-siegel/). Adjust uses the IP and Mac-addresses of the UserApp-users, but these are used exclusively in an anonymised form. It is therefore not possible to trace this data back to a natural person. The information collected through the use of Adjust is used merely to analyse the function and use of the App by creating anonymous evaluations and graphics of the number of visits, number of web pages accessed per user, etc. The analyses are used exclusively for personal market research as well as for the optimisation and a needs-oriented design of the App.

 

Possibility of revocation: You can stop any tracking associated with the App in future by selecting the “Data protection” item on the menu and adjusting the sliding switch accordingly (“Turn off Tracking”).

 

 

EASYMARKETING

 

We are working together with Easy Marketing GmbH (Asselner Hellweg 124, 44319 Dortmund, Ger-many, hereinafter referred to as: “EASY Marketing”) on the implementation of an Affiliate Partner Programme. For this purpose, a Cookie is installed on the website by Easy Marketing. The contents of the Cookie are a 24-digit, alphanumeric, clear ID. Through this ID, the session of the respective user can be retrieved through the internal database. This session contains click-data (Campaign ID, Adver-tising material ID, Publisher project ID) as well as the user agent, the hashed IP (SHA512), all GET-parameters on the click-tracking link, and the time stamp. The respective session is complemented as soon as another tracking-relevant click is executed (publisher click or etms click). If you do not want this to happen, you can state your objection here: http://www.eadev.de/content-optout.do.

 

 

VISUAL WEBSITE OPTIMISER

 

This website further uses the Visual Website Optimiser, a web analysis service of Wingify, Inc. (here-inafter referred to as: “VWO”). This is a web analysis service of Wingify, 14th Floor, KLJ Tower North, Netaji Subhash Place, Pitam Pura, Delhi 110034, India. VWO tests the user-friendliness of certain web pages. In this process, measurements relating to user behaviour are anonymously collected. We have no possibility of assigning these anonymous measurements to your person – say through the assignment of your IP-address or in other ways.

ADDTHIS

 

We use Plugins of the service provider AddThis on our website. AddThis is operated by AddThis, LLC, 1595 Spring Hill Rd, Suite 300, Vienna, VA 22182, USA (hereinafter referred to as: “AddThis”). Add-This provides tools for constructing and designing websites (www.addthis.com). This is meant to make it easier for visitors to the website to share the respective current page with other Internet users by e-mail or in social networks. You can recognise these Plugins by the buttons labelled "Tweet", “E-mail", “LinkedIn", and "g +1”, which are integrated into sections of our website. In addition, AddThis provides tools for website operators to help them analyse and improve the use of their own website or to ena-ble them to address the user directly. In this process, AddThis also uses cookies and web beacons (little graphics, “number pixels”, which make it possible to record and to analyse a log file). If you use an AddThis-Plugin, your Internet browser will set up a direct connection with the servers of AddThis and, if necessary, the selected social network. The data generated in the process (e.g. time of use or browser language) are transmitted to AddThis and processed there. If you send contents of our web-site to social networks, a connection can be established between the visit of the website and your user profile at the respective social network. You can find detailed information about data processing and data protection by AddThis at: http://www.addthis.com/privacy/privacy-policy.

 

We do not process the data in question, nor do we share it with third parties. By using the AddThis Plugin, you agree to the processing of your data by AddThis.

 

 

YOUTUBE

 

We use the service provider YouTube for the integration of videos, among other things, in our web-site. YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC with headquarters in 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube is represented by Google Inc. with headquarters in 1600 Amphitheatre Park-way, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

 

If you visit pages of our website equipped with a Plugin – for example, our media library – a connec-tion is established with the YouTube servers, and the Plugin is displayed in the process. Through this, a message will be sent to the YouTube server indicating which of our websites you visited. If you are logged onto YouTube as a member, YouTube will assign this information to your personal user ac-count. If the Plugin is used, e.g. when the start button of a video is clicked, this information will also be assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your YouTube user account as well as other user accounts belonging to YouTube LLC and Google Inc. and deleting the relevant cookies of those providers before using our website.

 

You can find further information on data processing and data protection by YouTube (Google) at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

 

 

GEOTRUST

 

Java-Script code from GeoTrust, Inc., 350 Ellis Street, Mountain View, CA 94043-2202, USA (herein-after referred to as: “GeoTrust”) is reloaded on our website. If you have activated Java script in your browser and you have not installed any Java script blocker, your browser will probably transmit per-sonal data to GeoTrust. To prevent the running of Java-Script code from GeoTrust completely, you can install a Java script blocker (e.g. www.noscript.net or www.ghostery.com).

The data collected in this way is anonymous to us; that is, we do not see the per-sonal data of individual users.
