Automatic data storage

​When you visit websites today, certain information is automatically created and stored, including on this website.

When you visit our website as you are doing right now, our web server (computer on which this website is stored) automatically saves data such as

  • the address (URL) of the accessed web page
  • Browser and browser version
  • the operating system used
  • the address (URL) of the previously visited page (referrer URL)
  • the host name and IP address of the device from which access is made
  • Date and time

in files (web server log files).

The data is recorded for the duration of this session; this is due to technical reasons and thus constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art 6 (1) lit f DSGVO. As a rule, web server log files are stored for two weeks and then automatically deleted. We do not pass on this data, but cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of illegal behaviour.

Collection of personal data

​Personal data that you transmit to us electronically on this website, such as your name, e-mail address, postal address or other personal details when submitting a form, together with the time and IP address, will only be used by us for the purpose stated in each case, will be stored securely and will not be passed on to third parties.

The data provided by you is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures or for the fulfilment of the contract or for other purposes stated; without this, a contract cannot be concluded.

We use your personal data therefore only for communication with those visitors who expressly wish to contact us and for processing the services and products offered on this website.

We do not pass on your personal data without your consent, but we cannot exclude the possibility that this data may be viewed in the event of illegal behaviour.

If you send us personal data by e-mail - thus off this website - we cannot guarantee secure transmission and protection of your data. We recommend that you never send confidential data by e-mail without encryption.

Use of personal data

Personal data may be used for the following purposes:

  • In certain cases, a separate declaration of consent may be required (Art. 6 para. 1 lit a DSGVO). The purpose for this is stated separately (for example, subscription to a newsletter). You are free to withdraw your consent at any time and we will stop processing your information for this purpose. D
  • Pre-contractual measures, acceptance and fulfilment of the contract in accordance with Art 6 Paragraph 1 lit b DSGVO, so that, for example, an enquiry can be processed
  • Fulfilment of legal obligations (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO)
  • Legitimate interest pursuant to Art 6 Paragraph 1 lit f DSGVO, such as in particular advertising and marketing

Duration of storage

We only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the above-mentioned purposes and to provide the service you have requested or for other necessary purposes. The personal data will be deleted when they are no longer relevant for the above-mentioned purposes and there is no longer any obligation to retain them.

Rights under the basic data protection regulation

​In accordance with the provisions of the DSGVO and the Austrian Data Protection Act (DSG), you are basically entitled to the following rights:

  • Right of rectification (Article 16 DSGVO)
  • Right of cancellation ("right to be forgotten") (Article 17 DPA)
  • Right to restrict processing (Article 18 DSGVO)
  • Right of notification - Obligation to notify in connection with the correction or deletion of personal data or the restriction of processing (Article 19 DPA)
  • Right to data transferability (Article 20 DSGVO)
  • Right of revocation of consent granted (Art 7 DSGVO)
  • Right of objection (Article 21 DSGVO)
  • Right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling (Article 22 DPA)

If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law or your data protection rights have otherwise been violated, you can complain to us or to the data protection authority, whose website you can find at

Passing on of data

Personal data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for one of the stated purposes. If necessary, we may pass on the data to third parties who assist us in providing and improving our services.

For example, it may be necessary for Wocodea GmbH to commission other companies to perform tasks. For example, when processing payments, the bank/account data is transmitted to the processing payment service providers for the purpose of debiting the fee.

If the recipient of personal data is located outside the EU/EEA, the transfer is either based on EU standard contractual clauses approved by the EU Commission or the recipient has committed to comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework and is certified accordingly.

Close account and delete personal data

To close your account and delete your data, please send an email to the following address We will close your account, delete your data, and confirm the deletion in writing via email.

TLS encryption with https

We use https to transmit data tap-proof on the Internet (data protection through technology design article 25 paragraph 1 DSGVO). By using TLS (Transport Layer Security), an encryption protocol for secure data transmission on the Internet, we can ensure the protection of confidential data. You can recognize the use of this data transmission security by the small lock symbol in the upper left corner of the browser and the use of the https scheme (instead of http) as part of our Internet address.


If you register for our newsletter, you provide us with the above-mentioned personal data and give us the right to contact you by e-mail (consent in accordance with Art 6 Paragraph 1 lit a DSGVO). As soon as you have registered for the newsletter, we will send you a confirmation e-mail with a link to confirm your registration. We use the data stored during registration for the newsletter exclusively for our newsletter and do not pass them on. You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. We will then delete all data stored with the registration for the newsletter.


We send newsletters with MailChimp and use on this website functions of the newsletter service MailChimp of The Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308 USA to collect newsletter subscriptions.

The Rocket Science Group LLC (MailChimp) maintains online platforms that allow our users to stay in touch with their subscribers, primarily via email. They allow users to upload e-mail addresses and other subscriber profile information, such as name, physical address and other demographic information, to the MailChimp database.

This information is used to send e-mail and to enable the use of certain other MailChimp features for these users. In accordance with the published privacy policy, MailChimp shares some information with third parties to provide and support the services MailChimp offers to users.

MailChimp is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on M

he use of cookies at MailChimp is explained at, information on data protection at MailChimp (privacy) can be found at

The use of MailChimp and the transfer of data is based on our legitimate interests according to article 6 paragraph 1 lit f DSGVO. In addition, we have concluded a contract with MailChimp for data processing addendum. This contract serves to protect your personal data and ensures that MailChimp complies with the applicable data protection regulations and does not pass on your personal data to third parties.


Our website uses HTTP cookies to store user-specific data.

In the following we explain what cookies are and why they are used so that you can better understand the following privacy policy.

What exactly are cookies?

Whenever you surf the Internet, you use a browser. Some well-known browsers include Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Edge. Most websites store small text files in your browser. These files are called cookies.

There is one thing that cannot be dismissed: Cookies are really useful little helpers. Almost all websites use cookies. More precisely, they are HTTP cookies, since there are other cookies for other applications. HTTP cookies are small files that are stored on your computer by our website. These cookie files are automatically stored in the cookie folder, quasi the "brain" of your browser. A cookie consists of a name and a value. When defining a cookie, one or more attributes must also be specified.

Cookies store certain user data about you, such as language or personal page settings. When you visit our site again, your browser transmits the "user-related" information back to our site. Thanks to the cookies, our website knows who you are and offers you the setting you are used to. In some browsers each cookie has its own file, in others, such as Firefox, all cookies are stored in a single file.

There are both first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly by our site, third-party cookies are created by partner sites (e.g. Google Analytics). Each cookie is unique because each cookie stores different data. The expiration time of a cookie also varies from a few minutes to a few years. Cookies are not software programs and do not contain viruses, trojans or other "pests". Cookies also cannot access information on your PC.

What types of cookies are there?

The question of which cookies we use in particular depends on the services used and is clarified in the following sections of the privacy policy. At this point we would like to briefly discuss the different types of HTTP cookies.

You can distinguish 4 types of cookies:

  • Essential cookies

These cookies are necessary to ensure basic functions of the website. For example, these cookies are needed when a user places a product in the shopping cart, then continues surfing on other pages and only proceeds to checkout later. These cookies do not delete the shopping cart, even if the user closes his browser window.

  • Appropriate cookies

These cookies collect information about user behaviour and whether the user receives any error messages. In addition, these cookies also measure the loading time and the behaviour of the website with different browsers.

  • Goal-oriented cookies

These cookies ensure a better user experience. For example, entered locations, font sizes or form data are stored.

  • Advertising cookies

These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They are used to deliver customized advertising to the user. This can be very practical, but also very annoying.

Usually the first time you visit a website, you will be asked which of these types of cookies you wish to accept. And of course this decision is also stored in a cookie.

How can I delete cookies?

How and whether you want to use cookies is up to you. Regardless of which service or website the cookies come from, you always have the option of deleting, deactivating or only partially allowing cookies. For example, you can block third-party cookies, but allow all other cookies.

If you want to find out which cookies have been stored in your browser when you change or delete cookie settings, you can find this in your browser settings:

Chrome: Delete, activate and manage cookies in Chrome
Safari: Manage cookies and website data with Safari
Firefox: Delete cookies to remove data that websites have placed on your computer
Internet Explorer: Delete and manage cookies
Microsoft Edge: Delete and manage cookies

If you do not wish to receive cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. In this way, you can decide for each individual cookie whether you want to allow it or not. The procedure varies depending on the browser. The best way to find instructions is to search Google using the search term "Delete Chrome cookies" or "Disable Chrome cookies" in the case of a Chrome browser.

What about my privacy?

The so-called "cookie guidelines" have been in place since 2009. They state that the storage of cookies requires your consent. Within the EU countries, however, there are still very different reactions to these guidelines. In Austria, however, this directive was transposed into § 96 (3) of the Telecommunications Act (TKG).

If you want to know more about cookies and are not afraid of technical documentation, we recommend, the Request for Comments of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) called "HTTP State Management Mechanism".

Web Analysis

We use functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics.

Cookies are used for this purpose, which enable an analysis of the use of the website by you as a user. The information thus generated is transferred to the provider's server and stored there.

You can prevent this by setting up your browser in such a way that no cookies are stored (for more information, see the "Cookies" section).

​A corresponding contract for commissioned data processing exists with the provider.

Data processing is carried out on the basis of the provisions of Art 6 Paragraph 1 lit f (legitimate interest) of the DSGVO. Our concern in the sense of the DSGVO is the improvement of our offer and our web presence. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymised. The evaluation of the collected data is therefore generally anonymous and we cannot draw any conclusions about your person from your behaviour on this website.

Google Analytics

​We use Google Analytics from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) on this website to statistically evaluate visitor data. Google Analytics uses target-oriented cookies for this purpose. We have activated the functions for advertising reports in Google Analytics. The demographic and interest reports contain information on age, gender and interests. This enables us to get a better picture of our users without having to assign this data to individual persons.

The duration of the storage of user data can vary depending on the settings, but is at least 14 months. Personal data is only stored as long as it is necessary for the respective purpose.

The data is transferred to a Google server in the USA. Due to the certification for the American-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", the American company Google LLC must comply with the data protection laws applicable in the EU.

​For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visit or

​Data processing is carried out on the basis of the provisions of Art 6 EU-DSGVO paragraph 1 lit a f (legitimate interest) of the DSGVO.

You can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:

Embedded Social Media Elements

​We integrate elements of social media services on our website to display images, videos and text. When you visit pages that display these elements, data is transferred from your browser to the respective social media service and stored there. We have no access to this data.

The following links will take you to the pages of the respective social media services where it is explained how they handle your data:

Instagram Privacy Policy:
For YouTube the Google Privacy Policy applies:
Facebook data policy:
Twitter Privacy Policy:


We use features of Facebook on this website, a social media network of FIrma Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.

You can find out which functions (social plug-ins) Facebook provides at

By visiting our website, information can be transmitted to Facebook. When the page is loaded, the Facebook-Like button transmits the IP address, the web browser identification and the date and time of the call to the social media provider Facebook, regardless of whether the button was clicked or the user has a Facebook account. If you have a Facebook account, Facebook can assign this data to your personal account. If you do not wish to do so, please log off from Facebook.


We have included YouTube videos on our website. So we can present you interesting videos directly on our site. YouTube is a video portal, which is a subsidiary of Google LLC since 2006. The video portal is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page on our website that has an embedded YouTube video, your browser automatically connects to the servers of YouTube or Google. In the process, various data is transferred (depending on the settings). Google is responsible for the entire data processing and Google's data protection policy therefore also applies.

YouTube is the video platform with the most visitors and the best content. We strive to provide you with the best possible user experience on our website. And of course, interesting videos should not be missing. With the help of our embedded videos, we provide you with further helpful content in addition to our texts and images. In addition, the embedded videos make our website easier to find on the Google search engine. Even if we use Google Ads to place advertisements, Google can - thanks to the data collected - really only show these ads to people who are interested in our offers.

What data is stored by YouTube?

When you visit one of our sites that has a YouTube video embedded, YouTube at least sets a cookie that stores your IP address and our URL. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube can associate your interactions on our site with your profile, usually using cookies. This includes information such as session duration, bounce rate, approximate location, technical information such as browser type, screen resolution, or your Internet service provider. Other data may include contact information, any ratings, sharing content through social media, or adding to your favorites on YouTube.

If you're not signed in to a Google Account or a YouTube account, Google stores data with a unique identifier associated with your device, browser, or app. For example, your preferred language setting is preserved. But much interaction data can't be stored because fewer cookies are set.

In the following list we show cookies that were set in a test in the browser. On the one hand we show cookies that are set without a registered YouTube account. On the other hand we show cookies that are set with a registered account.

How long and where is the data stored?

The data that YouTube receives from you and processes are stored on Google's servers. Most of these servers are located in America. You can see exactly where Google's data centres are located at Your data is distributed across the servers. So the data can be retrieved faster and is better protected against manipulation. Google stores the collected data for different lengths of time. Some data can be deleted at any time, others are automatically deleted after a limited time and some are stored by Google for a longer time. Some data (such as elements from "My activity", photos or documents, products) stored in your Google Account will remain stored until you delete them. Even if you're not signed in to a Google Account, you can delete some data associated with your device, browser, or app.


We use features of the social media network LinkedIn from LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA on our website.

By calling up pages that use such functions, data (IP address, browser data, date and time, cookies) are transmitted to LinkedIn, stored and evaluated.

If you have a LinkedIn account and are logged in, this information will be associated with your personal account and the data stored in it.

The privacy policy, what information LinkedIn collects and how they use it can be found at


We use buttons and widgets of the social media network Pinterest, the company Pinterest Inc.,808 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA on our site.

By calling up pages that use such functions, data (IP address, browser data, date and time, cookies) are transmitted to Pinterest, stored and evaluated.

We have included features from Instagram on our website. Instagram is a social media platform of the company Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd, Menlo Park CA 94025, USA. Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. since 2012 and is part of the Facebook products.

Why do we use Instagram on our website?

The embedded Instagram features allow us to enrich our content with helpful, funny or exciting content from the Instagram world. Since Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook, the data collected may also be useful to us for personalized advertising on Facebook. This way, our ads are only shown to people who are really interested in our products or services. Instagram also uses the collected data for measurement and analysis purposes. We get summarized statistics and thus more insight into your wishes and interests. It is important to note that these reports do not personally identify you.

What data does Instagram store?

If you come across one of our sites that has Instagram features (such as Instagram images or plug-ins) built in, your browser will automatically connect to Instagram's servers. Data is sent to Instagram, stored and processed. This is regardless of whether you have an Instagram account or not. This includes information about our website, your computer, purchases made, advertisements you see and how you use our services. We also record the date and time of your interaction with Instagram. If you have an Instagram account or are logged in, Instagram stores much more information about you.

How long and where is the data stored?

Instagram shares the information it receives between the Facebook companies with external partners and with people you connect with around the world. Data processing is done in accordance with our own data policy. For security reasons, among others, your data is distributed on Facebook servers around the world. Most of these servers are located in the USA.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

Thanks to the Data Protection Basic Regulation, you have the right to information, transferability, correction and deletion of your data. You can manage your data in the Instagram settings. If you want to completely delete your data on Instagram, you must permanently delete your Instagram account.

Instagram is a subsidiary of Facebook Inc. and Facebook is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. This framework ensures correct data transmission between the USA and the European Union. You can learn more about it at We have tried to provide you with the most important information about data processing by Instagram. At

We use ShareThis features from ShareThis (4005 Miranda Ave, Suite 100, Palo Alto, 94304 California, USA) on this website to allow visitors to share content from this website. By using the Social Plugins from ShareThis, visitors are able to share content from this website in various social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and many more.

Which data does ShareThis process?

When visitors share content with ShareThis in services where they have an account and are logged in, the visit and sharing can be assigned to the user.

ShareThis uses cookies, pixel tags, HTTP headers and browser identifiers to collect information about visitor behavior and shares this information with third parties after pseudonymization.

Facebook pixels

We use on this website the Facebook pixel of Facebook, a social media network of Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland. The code implemented on this page can evaluate the behaviour of visitors who have come to this website from a Facebook advertisement. This can be used to improve Facebook Ads and this data is collected and stored by Facebook. The collected data is not visible to us, but can only be used in the context of ad placements. By using the Facebook pixel code, cookies are also set.

By using the Facebook pixel, the visit of this website is communicated to Facebook, so that visitors on Facebook can see suitable ads. If you have a Facebook account and are logged in, your visit to this website is assigned to your Facebook user account.

Further information about the programs we use

Google reCAPTCHA

Our primary goal is to ensure that our website is as secure and safe as possible for you and for us. To ensure this, we use Google reCAPTCHA from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). With reCAPTCHA we can determine whether you are really a flesh and blood person and not a robot or other spam software.

ReCAPTCHA collects personal information from users in order to determine whether the actions on our website are actually from people. This means that the IP address and other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service can be sent to Google. IP addresses are almost always shortened within the member states of the EU or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before the data lands on a server in the USA. The IP address is not combined with any other data held by Google unless you are signed in with your Google Account while using reCAPTCHA.

How long and where is the data stored?

By inserting reCAPTCHA, data from you is transferred to the Google server. If you are signed in to your Google Account while using the reCAPTCHA plug-in, the data will be merged. This is subject to Google's different privacy policy.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

If you do not want any data about you or your behaviour to be transmitted to Google, you must log out of Google completely and delete all Google cookies before you visit our website or use the reCAPTCHA software. In principle, the data is automatically transmitted to Google as soon as you visit our website. To delete this data again, you must contact Google support at

So when you use our website, you agree that Google LLC and its agents may automatically collect, process and use data.

You can find out more about reCAPTCHA on Google's web development page at Google will explain the technical development of reCAPTCHA in more detail here, but you will not find detailed information about data storage and data protection issues there. A good overview of the basic use of data at Google can be found in the company's own privacy policy at

Google Fonts Local

On our website we use Google Fonts of the company Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). We have integrated the Google fonts locally, i.e. on our web server - not on the servers of Google. This means that there is no connection to Google servers and therefore no data transfer or storage.

Which data is stored by Google?

When you visit our website, the fonts are reloaded via a Google server. This external call transfers data to the Google servers. In this way Google also recognizes that you or your IP address is visiting our website. The Google Fonts API was developed to reduce the use, storage and collection of end user data to what is necessary for a proper provision of fonts. By the way, API stands for "Application Programming Interface" and serves, among other things, as a data transmitter in the software sector.

Google Fonts securely stores CSS and font requests at Google and is therefore protected. Google can use the collected usage figures to determine how well the individual fonts are received. Google publishes the results on internal analysis pages, such as Google Analytics. Google also uses data from its own web crawler to determine which websites use Google fonts. This data is published in Google Fonts' BigQuery database.

How long and where is the data stored?

Google stores requests for CSS assets for one day on your servers, which are mainly located outside the EU. This allows us to use the fonts using a Google style sheet. A stylesheet is a style template that allows you to easily and quickly change, for example, the design or font of a web page.

The font files are stored by Google for one year. Google's goal is to improve the loading time of web pages.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

The data that Google stores for a day or a year cannot simply be deleted. The data is automatically transmitted to Google when the page is called up. To delete this data prematurely, you must contact Google support at

You can also find out which data is generally collected by Google and what this data is used for at

Google Maps

On our website we use Google Maps from the company Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). With Google Maps we can show you locations better and thus adapt our service to your needs. By using Google Maps, data is transferred to Google and stored on Google's servers.

Why do we use Google Maps on our website?

All our efforts on this site are aimed at providing you with a useful and meaningful time on our website. Through the integration of Google Maps we can provide you with the most important information about various locations. You can see at a glance where we have our headquarters. The route description always shows you the best or fastest way to reach us. You can call up the directions for routes by car, public transport, on foot or by bicycle. For us the provision of Google Maps is part of our customer service.

Which data is stored by Google Maps?

In order for Google Maps to offer its service in its entirety, the company must collect and store data about you. This includes the search terms entered, your IP address and also the latitude and longitude coordinates. If you use the route planner function, the start address entered will also be saved. However, this data storage happens on the websites of Google Maps. We can only inform you about it, but we cannot influence it. Since we have integrated Google Maps into our website, Google sets at least one cookie (name: NID) in your browser. This cookie stores data about your user behaviour. Google uses this data primarily to optimise its own services and to provide individual, personalised advertising for you.

How long and where is the data stored?

The Google servers are located in data centers around the world. However, most servers are located in America. For this reason, your data is also increasingly stored in the USA. Here you can find out exactly where the Google data centers are located:

Google stores some data for a specified period of time. For other data, Google only offers the option to delete it manually. The company also anonymizes information (such as advertising data) in server logs by deleting part of the IP address and cookie information after 9 and 18 months respectively.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

With the automatic deletion of location and activity data introduced in 2019, location and web/app activity information is stored for either 3 or 18 months, depending on your decision, and then deleted. You can also manually delete this data from your history at any time using your Google Account. If you want to completely stop your location tracking, you'll need to pause the Web and App activity section of your Google Account. Click 'Data and personalization' and then click the 'Activity setting' option. Here you can turn activity on or off.

Google is an active participant in the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, which regulates the correct and secure transfer of personal data. You can find more information on this at If you want to learn more about Google's data processing, we recommend that you read the company's own privacy policy at

Google Ads (Google AdWords) conversion tracking

We use Google Ads (formerly Google AdWords) as an online marketing measure to promote our products and services. In this way we want to make more people aware of the high quality of our offers on the Internet. As part of our advertising measures through Google Ads, we use conversion tracking on our website from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This free tracking tool allows us to better tailor our advertising offer to your interests and needs.

What information is stored in Google Ads conversion tracking?

We have included a conversion tracking tag or code snippet on our website to better analyze certain user actions. If you now click on one of our Google Ads ads, the "conversion" cookie from a Google domain is stored on your computer (usually in the browser) or mobile device.

How long and where is the data stored?

At this point we would like to point out that we have no influence on how Google uses the collected data. According to Google, the data is encrypted and stored on secure servers. In most cases, conversion cookies expire after 30 days and do not transmit any personal data. The cookies with the name "Conversion" and "_gac" (which is used in connection with Google Analytics) have an expiration date of 3 months.

How can I delete my data or prevent data storage?

You have the option not to participate in Google Ads conversion tracking. If you disable the Google Conversion Tracking cookie through your browser, you're blocking conversion tracking. In this case, you will not be included in the tracking tool's statistics.

Through the certification for the American-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", the American company Google LLC must comply with the data protection laws applicable in the EU. If you would like to learn more about data protection at Google, we recommend Google's general privacy policy:

Google AdSense

We use Google AdSense on this website. This is an advertising program of the company Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). With Google AdSense, we can display ads on this website that match our theme. In this way, we can offer you ads that ideally represent a real added value for you.

Why do we use Google AdSense on our website?

We always try to maintain our site and keep it as up-to-date as possible. Of course we also want to achieve an economic success with this work. Therefore we have decided to use advertisements as a source of income. However, the most important thing for us is not to disturb your visit to our website by these advertisements. With the help of Google AdSense you will only be offered advertising that fits our topics and your interests.

Which data is stored by Google AdSense?

So that Google AdSense can display a tailor-made, on you adapted advertisement, among other things cookies are used.

Google can collect certain information about your user behaviour on our website via cookies. These include: Information on how you handle an advertisement (clicks, impressions, mouse movements)

Information whether an advertisement has already appeared in your browser at an earlier time. This data helps to prevent you from seeing an ad more often.

In doing so, Google analyses and evaluates the data on the displayed advertising media and your IP address.

How long and where is the data stored?

Google records your IP address and various activities that you carry out on the website. Cookies store this information about the interactions on our website. According to Google, the company collects and stores the information provided in a secure manner on Google's own servers in the USA.

If you do not have a Google account or are not logged in, Google usually saves the collected data with a unique identification (ID) on your browser. The unique IDs stored in cookies serve, for example, to ensure personalized advertising. If you are logged into a Google Account, Google may also collect personal data.

You can delete some of the data that Google stores at any time (see next section). Much of the information stored in cookies is automatically deleted after a certain amount of time. However, there is also data that Google stores over a longer period of time. This is the case if Google has to store certain data for an indefinite, longer period of time due to economic or legal necessities.

You always have the possibility to delete or deactivate cookies that are on your computer. You can find more information on this under the item "Cookies".
