When you use our Website, we will collect non-personally identifiable information such as session durations, page impressions, IP addresses, the domain name that served you to access the Website, and content types and origins. We will also store information related to online data or metadata that is routed through our servers, such as web page addresses, structures, data fields and images.
We will collect personal information when you register with us, when you use a service from us and when you log into our systems later on with your user ID. Information we collect includes the information you give to us such as your name, address and email address, and information about what you do when using the Website or our services. If you do not wish us to collect such information, please log out and do not use your user ID when using our Website or services (some of our services are however not available without you being logged in using your user ID).

We may share personal information
All information you provide to us may be transferred or accessed by us, affiliates and third-parties around the world, including from within countries that do not provide for an adequate level of data protection.
California Civil Code Section § 1798.83 permits users of our Website that are California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third-parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us. However, certain third-party service providers, such as payment gateways and other payment transaction processors, have their own privacy policies with respect to the information we provide to them for your purchase-related transactions. Your access to or use of any service provided by a third-party service provider is subject to the policies of that service provider, including, without limitation, policies regarding how your personal data may be processed.
We use so-called “social plug-ins” of various social networks. These plug-ins are functions of the respective social network through which you can share content of the Website with your social media contacts, for instance, or recommend this content to others. Social plug-ins can be identified by the logo of the respective social network. We are using social plug-ins of the following social network providers:
· Facebook: Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
· Twitter: Twitter Inc., Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA
· Google+: Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
· LinkedIn: LinkedIn In., 2029 Stierlin Ct, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
Via the integrated social plug-ins, the social network operators will be informed that you have called up the respective pages of the Website. If you are logged into any of the social networks at the same time, the operator will be able to match the relevant call-ups with your account at the respective social network. Moreover, if you interact with the social plug-ins, the relevant information will be forwarded to the respective social network. As far as we know, the following data will be transferred in the process: IP address, user identification if you are logged in at the relevant service, previously visited site (referrer) if you followed a link, type and settings of browser, plug-ins installed such as Adobe® Flash® or Adobe® Reader®, URL of the site which the social plug-in is embedded in, date and time of your visit, technical details of your operating system, location-based information, and cookies.
Even if you are not a member of any of the social networks listed above, it may be possible for them to find out your IP address via the social plug-in and store it. For details on the purpose and scope of data processing, collection and use by the social networks we are using, and on your rights and optional settings in this context, please refer to the social networks’ statements on data protection:
You can deactivate any or all social plug-ins at any time. You may also be able to technically prevent any data transfer to social networks. To do so, please adjust the security settings in the web browser you are using. For instructions on how to do this, please refer to the “Help” section in your web browser. In individual cases it is also possible to block social plug-ins by means of add-ons for your browser.
Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Website, compiling reports on Website activity for us and providing to us other services relating to Website activity and internet usage.
The security of your personal information is important to us, but you should be aware that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we try to use commercially reasonable means to protect your personally identifiable information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security and that we can prevent any unauthorized processing.
Data transmitted through an open network such as the internet or an email service can be accessed openly. We cannot guarantee the confidentiality of messages or materials sent through such open networks. When you share personal data through an open network, you should be aware that third-parties may access this information and collect and use it for their purposes. Even where the sender and the recipient are in the same country, data may be routed through other countries including such that do not have an adequate level of protection. Please use other means of communication where you consider this appropriate for security concerns. The transmission of all data from or to the Website occurs at your own risk, and we do not provide any warranties, express or implied, and will not have any liability in relation to such transmission.
If you wish to access personal information processed by us, if any, then please provide us with a written access request and a valid identification. We will review your request and respond to it in due time. The same shall apply with regard to requests for correction and deletion. We may decline to process requests that are frivolous, jeopardize the privacy of others, are extremely impractical, or for which access is not otherwise required by local law. For access, correction, or deletion requests you may contact our support.
If you have a valid user ID, then you may access your personal account and edit or amend your basic set of personal information stored by us at any time by logging into our Website.
