2. Cookies

Our website makes use of so-called cookies in order to recognize repeat use of our website by the same user/internet connection subscriber.

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or other web accessing devices by our website. In most cases these are so called “session-cookies”, which are deleted once you leave the website. These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of our Website through an IP address, which helps us to provide you with an enhanced experience when you browse our Website and also allows us to improve our Website.

Most web browsers allow control of cookies through the browser settings. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, which will enable you to decide if you want to accept it or not. However, if you do not accept a cookie you may not be able to use all the functionality of your browser software.

 

3. Server Data

For technical reasons your internet browser transmits certain data in so called server log files to us:

  • browser-type and –version
  • operating system
  • referrer URL
  • websites you visit
  • date and time of your visit
  • your IP-address

This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal information you may have provided, thereby making it impossible to connect it to any particular person. The data is used for statistical purposes in order to improve our website and services.

 

4. Registration / Newsletter

On our website we offer you the opportunity to subscribe for our newsletter. The newsletter provides you periodically with information about selected new and amended legal standards as well as other offers. To receive the newsletter, a valid e-mail address is required. We reserve to determine whether you are in fact the owner of the email address provided or whether the actual owner of said address is authorized to receive the newsletter.

As the input mask shows, when signing up the companies name, your name, your position as well as your e-mail address are to be entered. We collect and store these personal data exclusively for the use by our website. When signing up for our website, we also store your IP address and the date and time you registered. This serves to protect us in the event a third party improperly and without your knowledge makes use of your data to sign up for our site. None of this information is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information matched to any information that may be collected by other components of our website. You may cancel your subscription to the newsletter at any time.

6. Use of Google Analytics with anonymization

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., Mountain View, CA 94043 U.S.A. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

The IP anonymization is activated on the website of Webware Internet Solutions GmbH. Therefore, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of this website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or at http://www.google.de/intl/en_uk/policies/.

 

7. Use of Google-Adwords

For purposes of promotion, our website also employs the Google ad tool "Google-Adwords" (for information concerning Google, see No. 6). If you access our site by way of a Google ad, a cookie is placed on your computer.

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or other web accessing devices by our website. In this case so called “conversion-cookies”, which cease to be active after 30 days, are used for identification. Google uses the information obtained through "conversion-cookies" to compile statistics for our website. These statistics tell us the total number of users who have clicked on our ad as well as which pages of our site were then accessed by each user. However, the information can not be used to personally identify users.

You can prevent the installation of “conversion-cookies” with your browser settings, e.g. by deactivating the automatic placement of cookies. However, if you do not accept a cookie you may not be able to use all the functionality of our website.
