1.5. Web analysis
1.5.1. Google Analytics
These websites use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are saved on your computer and facilitate an analysis of how visitors use the website. The information that the cookie provides on your usage of this website is usually transferred to a server of Google in the US and saved there.
If IP anonymization is activated for this website, however, your IP address will be shortened in advance by Google in the member states of the European Union or in other states that are Contracting Parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The IP address is transferred to one of Google’s servers in the US and shortened there only in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of the website, to prepare reports on the website activities and to provide additional services connected with the usage of websites and the usage of the internet for the website operator. The IP address sent from your browser as part of Google Analytics shall not be combined with other data of Google. You can block the cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that you may not be able to use all the features of this website in full in such cases.
You can also prevent the recording of data produced by the cookie and obtained from your usage of the website (including your IP address) from being sent to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). You will find more information at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
You have the ability to prevent the future recording of your data when visiting this website by clicking on the following link to activate an opt-out cookie: Deactivate Google Analytics (function for activating the opt-out cookie).
To ensure the anonymous recording of IP addresses, Google Analytics has included the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” so that IP addresses are only processed in shortened form in order to rule out a direct connection to a person.
If you use the standard social plug-ins from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram & Co., it is possible for the individual social network to receive detailed information about the surfing conduct of users (so-called user tracking): When websites that have integrated a plug-in are called up, the browser of the user establishes a direct connection to the servers of the respective social network. This leads to the fact that the user data such as the IP address in particular is sent to the network and the network receives the information that the user visited the website. If the user is logged in simultaneously at the social network, this network can assign the website visit to the user’s account. If the user wants to prevent this, they must be logged out of the social network prior to visiting the websites that have integrated the social plug-ins.
But also in cases in which the user is not a member of a network, a transfer of data to the respective network also takes place with the integration of the standard social plug-ins. In the case of websites that integrated an active social plug-in, a cookie is placed each time a website is called up. This cookie is automatically sent each time a connection is made to a server in the network so that in principle it is possible for the network to combine all the pages visited by the user in order to create a profile. Therefore, it is also not ruled out that this data saved by the respective network will be assigned to the person if this person signs on to one of the social networks later.
Since numerous networks have their registered office outside of Europe, for example in the US, your data will be transmitted to social networks in these third countries, e.g. to the US, in the cases described above.
The social network WhatsApp is owned and run by WhatsApp Inc., 650 Castro Street, Suite 120-219
Mountain View, California, 94041, USA
We would like to give you the opportunity to show your contacts in social networks what you are interested in – under the condition that you give your consent to the sharing of data with the respective network. Therefore, as a rule we use the c’t project Shariff developed by the magazine publisher Heise to protect your data. By using Shariff, you can use our services without your surfing behaviour simultaneously being visible for social networks.
The Shariff button establishes the connection to the social network only when you become active and click on the button. Only after this has been done will your user data be transmitted to the respective network in the US or other third countries and saved there, as described above. Prior to this, the social networks cannot record any data from you. Please click here for more information on the c’t project Shariff.
