The informations generated by these cookies are the time of request, the referrer URL (previously visited page), operating system used, browser type and version and IP address (hostname) of the accessing computer.

Google AdSense

This site uses Google AdSense, a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043.
This service allows the inclusion of advertisements. Google AdSense uses cookies for this.

Google detects and normally stores the web request in so-called “server log files” with date and time, the IP address, browser type, browser language and one or more cookies that may possibly identify the uniquely used browser. This log data is anonymized by removing a portion of the IP address after 9 months and by deleting the cookie information after 18 months.

Google also uses cookies set under the domains google.com, doubleclick.net, invitemedia.com, admeld.com, googlesyndication.com or googleadservices.com for evaluating the click behavior on the advertising to optimize ad serving, mainly to prevent ads seen already and click-abuse.

In addition, Google also uses so-called Conversion cookies to inform how many visitors clicking on ads also do complete an order. More about the types of cookies used by Google for advertisements can be found here.

Data collected by Google is transmitted and stored, including IP address of the visitor and the delivery of advertising formats, on servers in the United States. The transfer of such data to contractors from Google can not be excluded. Google will not merge the IP address with other stored data.

The storage of cookies can be prevented by selecting appropriate settings in the browser (example instructions for Chrome), optionally by using anti tracker addons.

Social Plugins Facebook and Whatsapp (click-solution “Shariff”)

This site uses so-called “social plugins”. Currently in use are the plugins of services by Facebook and Whatsapp, both run by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.

This site itself does not collect personal data by means of the social plugins or their use.

Beyond that this site has no control on what data is collected by an activated plugin’s service as well as on how it is used by the agent. Currently it must be assumed that the IP address and device-related information is collected and used at least. It is possible also that the service providers are trying to save cookies on the computer being used.
