9. Use of Cookies

  1. To improve our websites, we make use of cookies. Cookies are small text files which make it possible for us to save specific information about you as a visitor of our website on your PC or other device. Cookies help us, for example, to increase security, to determine the frequency of use and the number of visitors to our websites, to analyse the user behaviour on our websites in anonymised form and to thereby assess the effectiveness of advertising.
  2. Session Cookies: We use so-called “session cookies,” with which you can be identified for the duration of your visit. These cookies expire automatically after closing your browser.
  3. Persistent Cookies: We also use persistent cookies. This way we can obtain information about visitors who access our websites repeatedly. Through the use of such cookies we can continually improve our products and services. These persistent cookies contain no personal data. The data saved in these cookies is not brought together with your personal data at any time.

Right to Object: You can prevent the setting of cookies and thereby object to the creation of a profile about the use of our website by deactivating the saving of cookies in your browser, by restricting it to certain websites, or by setting up a browser notification that monitors when a cookie is sent. You can also delete cookies at any time from the hard disk of your computer or from your respective device’s storage medium. Please note, however, that the use of our web site is only possible to a limited extent if session cookies are rejected.

10. Logfiles

With every page request, access data is saved through the web server in a log file. The data set saved contains the following data:

IP-addresses from users are not saved after the end of a visit to our web site, but rather are deleted or made anonymous subject to any legal obligation to preserve after the end of use. The IP-addresses are changed in such a way by anonymization that the information concerning the personal or material circumstances will no longer or, only with a disproportionate investment of time, costs, and manpower, be able to be attributed to an identified or identifiable individual.

We use the anonymous log data – which means without assignment or references to your person – for statistical analyses, in order to, for example, learn which days and which times of day the offers on our websites are especially favoured and how much data volume is generated on our web sites. Moreover, we make it possible to recognize errors, if any, in the log files, for example defective links or software defaults. So, we can use the log files for further development of our web sites. We do not connect at any time information about page retrievals or use saved in the server log to a single person. We reserve our use of files from the log files, if certain reasons for suspicion exist about the visitor or user using our web sites and/or our other services illegally or contrary to contract.

11. Share buttons of Social Networks

Our website makes use of share buttons that enable sharing of contents via the social networks Google+ , Twitter and Reddit. For this purpose, we use the shariff of heise online. In this way, no data of our website visitors are sent to the social network as long as the website visitor does not click the respective button. However, if the share button is clicked, the data will immediately be forwarded to the respective social network to which the button belongs, enabling the provider of the social network to collect data from the website visitor at that moment.

We do not have any influence on the scope and use of the data that the providers could collect in this context. Therefore, please read the privacy policy of the respective provider for details of the purpose and scope of the data collection and further processing and use of your data by the provider and your rights and configuration options to protect your privacy. You can find links to the respective privacy policies on the websites of the providers.
