The responsible body uses so-called "cookies," to individually engineer and optimise the on-line experience and on-line time of customers (is this the case?). A cookie is a text file which is either temporary stored in the ram of the computer ("session cookie") or on the hard drive ("permanent"). Cookies contain e.g. information about previous user visits to the corresponding server or information on which offerings have been called up to date. Cookies are not used to run programs or upload viruses to your computer. The main purpose of cookies is rather to provide an offering custom-tailored to the customer and to make using the service as convenient as possible.
The responsible body uses both session and permanent cookies.
The responsible body uses primarily "session cookies" which are not saved on the customer's hard drive and which are deleted upon exiting the browser. Session cookies are used here for login authentication and load balancing.
In addition, the responsible body uses "permanent cookies" to save the personal usage settings entered by a customer when using the services of the responsible body, to save these and thus to be able to personalise and enhance the service. Permanent cookies are used to ensure that when re-visiting the websites of the responsible body, customers are able to find their personal settings as they left them. In addition, the service providers the responsible body has contracted to handle the analysis of user behaviour use permanent cookies to be able to detect repeat visitors. These services only store the data transmitted by the cookie anonymously. No attribution to the customer's IP address is made.
Preventing of cookies
At any time, the user has the option to disallow cookies. This is generally done by selecting the corresponding option in the browser settings or additional programs. For more information, the customer should use the help function in his or her browser. If the customer decides to turn off cookies, this may reduce the scope of the services and may have a negatively perceptible impact on the use of the responsible body's services.
Use of analysis programs
The responsible body performs analyses on the behaviour of its customers as part of the use of its service or has such analyses performed by third parties. To this end, anonymised or pseudonymised use profiles are created. The creation of these use profiles is solely for the purpose of continuously improving the responsible body's service.
The responsible body also uses Google Analytics as part of the web analysis, which is a web analysis service by Google Inc. ("Google"); Analytics is used with the suffix "anonymizeIp()". This allows IP addresses to only be used in an abbreviated manner so as to exclude persons from being directly identified. The data collection and storage occurring in this context can be revoked with future effect at any time. To this end, please contact Google directly: (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de)
Google provides its users, e.g. the responsible body with the following notice in its data privacy statements. Weidinger GmbH meets this requirement by reproducing the following text:
