About Privacy and Protection of personal/private data on our website

In order to ensure the the quality of operation and protection of our website, we collect, process and store data on each visit to our web pages. This is done in so-called "logfiles". These logfiles contain these data:

- your browser type and version
- the operating system of your computer
- the website from which you have reached our website (so-called "referrer")
- the date and time of access to our web page
- your Internet protocol address (IP address)
- any error messages that might occur when you access our web page (so-called "status codes", eg. "404 - webpage not existing"). Any data in the logfiles is automatically being deleted after a maximum time of 1 month. The data will not be shared with any third party, unless we are under a legal obligation to do so.
In the case of permanent server and/or website shutdown, all existing data on the server will be deleted.

The above outlined information is needed by us to exercise our legitimate interests of operation and protection of our website and server, while, at the same time, your right to privacy and data integrity is being respected to a high degree. No further personal/private data is being collected, processed or stored by us on/from this website!

PLEASE NOTE: Advertisers (third-parties) offering advertises via our webpage may collect and store user data when you see their advertisments!
On our webpage, all advertises are served exclusively by the Google advertising product "Adsense" (see below).

About Cookies on our website

"Cookies" are information bits that are stored in your browser when you visit a website. They are used to "recognize" a visitor by its browser.
Cookies can also be set by third parties in order to track a browser across websites of multiple website owners, this method is used, for example, to try to find out which "interests" a user has and/or which advertises he has seen - or clicked on - recently.

Our website itself uses Cookies only to set a Cookie about the Cookie consent policy, as in "has agreed on using cookies". This means that the cookie set by our website, will prevent, if present (was set on an earlier visit),  that the notice about cookies will show up. This cookie expires automatically after a maximum of 365 days and can also be deleted by the user in the browser at any time (see also below).


In addition, advertisers (third-parties) offering advertises via our webpage may use Cookies when you see their advertisments!
On our webpage, all advertises are served exclusively by the Google advertising product "Adsense" (see below).


How does Google AdSense use cookies?

AdSense uses cookies to improve advertising. Some common applications are to target advertising based on what's relevant to a user, to improve reporting on campaign performance, and to avoid showing ads the user has already seen.

Cookies themselves contain no personally identifiable information. Depending on the publisherís and the userís settings, information associated with cookies used in advertising may be added to the userís Google Account.

AdSense sends a cookie to the user's browser after any impression, click, or other activity that results in a call to our servers. If the browser accepts the cookie, the cookie is stored on the browser.

Most commonly, AdSense sends a cookie to the browser when a user visits a page that shows Google ads. Pages with Google ads include ad tags that instruct browsers to request ad content from our servers. When the server delivers the ad content, it also sends a cookie. But a page doesnít have to show Google ads for this to happen; it just needs to include our ad tags, which might load a click tracker or impression pixel instead.


How Google uses data when you visit our website

Many websites use Google technologies to improve their content and keep it free of charge for visitors. When you visit a website that uses Google advertising products (like AdSense), your web browser automatically sends certain information to Google. This includes, for example, the web address of the page that you're visiting and your IP address. There could be set cookies on your browser, or read cookies that are already there.

When you visit websites that use Google technologies, Google may use the information it receives from those websites for example: Please read more about this on the Google information page, from which the following article was taken:


How you can control the information sent to Google

Here are some of the ways you can control the information that is shared by your device when you visit or interact with sites and apps that use Google services:


How can you, in general, prevent cookies from being stored in your browser and delete cookies?

1) Each browser gives you, in the browser settings, the option to decline cookies in general or by website. Each browser gives you also the option to delete cookies that have been stored already. And most browsers will give you as well the option to accept cookies only on a "per session" base, meaning that, whenever you close your browser,  all cookies that have been stored since you opened it, will then be deleted.
Be aware, though, that declining cookies will still show you adverts, because the cookies, in most cases, will only control which adverts you will see - and not whether or not at all.

Visit this webpage for a step-by-step procedure to remove cookies in the various, most commonly used, browsers!

2) Cookies will, in almost all cases, only be set when you accept active content based on "Javascript". If you do not accept Javascript content to be executed in your browser, no cookie will be set (and you most likely will not see a lot of advertising either). However, disabling Javascript might also, these days, prevent most websites from being displayed as they were intended to, meaning that you might not be able to navigate the website, or use all available options, ... or see anything at all on it. It is worth a try, though.
There are Browser AddOns existing for many browsers (eg. "NoScript") which will allow you to enable Javascript on a per-website base.
