Your +1 votes may be published or displayed as notices together with your profile name and your picture at Google services, such as search results, your Google profile or at other places on websites. Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve the Google sevices for you and others. To be able to use the Google +1 button you need a globally visible, public Google profile which must contain at least the user name chosen for this profile. This name will be used for all Google services. In some cases this name may be replaced by another name which you used when sharing contents via your Google account. The ID of your Google account can be displayed to users who know your e-mail address or possess any other information identifying you.

Sever-log-files

The provider of these websites automatically collects and stores information in log files which your browser automatically transmits to us, such as

  • browser type/version
  • used operating system
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer

Those data cannot be associated with individual persons. A merging with other data sources does not take place. We reserve the right to retrospectively check the data if reasonable evidences concerning illegal use become known.

Those data will not be passed on without your permission.

Integration of services and contents from third parties

It may be that our website contains contents from third parties like videos from YouTube, maps from Google maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. In any of those cases, this always requires that the providers of those contents (referred to as “third party provider” from now on) recognize both, IP address and the user. Without this, they would be unable to send this information to the user’s browsers. The IP address is required for the presentation of these contents. We try to integrate only contents of providers that will use the IP address only for the presentation of the contents. We, however, have no influence whether those third party providers will save IP addresses for internal use. As far as we know of these practices, we inform our users.

Objection to commercial mails

Providers are obligated to publish contact information in the Legal Note/Impressum. The use of such contact information by third parties for the purpose of distributing unsolicited advertisements or other commercial information is prohibited. The operators of this website reserve the right to take legal measures in case of being sent unsolicited commercial information, e.g. spam mails etc.
