Privacy Policy

scope

This data protection declaration informs users about the type, scope and purposes of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider Fabian Arnold, Berta-von-Suttner-Weg 9, 42929 Wermelskirchen Germany, office@fabianxarnold.com on the following website (hereinafter “offer”).

The legal basis of data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG).

access data/server log files

The provider (or its web space provider) collects data about every access to the offer (so-called server log files). The access data includes:

Name of the accessed website, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider uses the protocol data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data subsequently if there is a justified suspicion of illegal use based on concrete indications.

contact

When contacting the provider (for example via contact form or e-mail), the user’s details are stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise.

comments and Posts

If users leave comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are stored. This takes place for the security of the provider, if someone writes illegal contents in comments and contributions (insults, forbidden political propaganda, etc.). In this case the provider himself can be prosecuted for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

comment subscriptions

Subsequent comments can be subscribed by users. Users will receive a confirmation email to verify that they are the owner of the email address they entered. Users can unsubscribe from ongoing comment subscriptions at any time. The confirmation email will contain notes.

newsletter

With this newsletter we inform you about us and our offers.

If you would like to receive the newsletter, we need a valid email address from you and information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected. These data will only be used for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

When you register for the newsletter, we save your IP address and the date of registration. This storage serves solely as proof in the event that a third party misuses an e-mail address and registers for receiving the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorized party.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can take place via a link in the newsletters themselves, in your profile area or by notification to the above contact possibilities.

integration of third-party services and content

It is possible that third party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, is integrated within this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third party providers”) perceive the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the contents. However, we have no influence on this if the third party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as we know, we inform the users about this.

Google Analytics

This offer uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. “(“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on the user’s computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by users is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce the IP addresses of users within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website by the users, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet.

The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. Users may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on their browser, however, this site may not allow you to use the full functionality of this site.

using Facebook social plugins

This offer uses social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile, the terms “Like”, “Like” or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and the appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When a user accesses a website on this site that contains such a plugin, his browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the amount of data Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs users according to its knowledge level:

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or making a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to obtain and store their IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the rights and setting options for the protection of users’ privacy in this regard can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to use this offer to collect data about him or her and link it to his or her membership data stored on Facebook, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website. Further settings and objections to the use of data for advertising purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.

+1 button from Google+

This offer uses the “+1″ button of the social network Google Plus, which is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). The button can be recognized by the sign “+1″ on a white or colored background.

When a user calls up a website of this offer that contains such a button, the browser establishes a direct connection to Google’s servers. The content of the “+1″ button is transmitted by Google directly to its browser and integrated into the website. The provider therefore has no influence on the extent of the data that Google collects with the button. According to Google, no personal data is collected without a click on the button. Only with logged in members, such data, among other things the IP address, are raised and processed.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be seen by the users of Google’s data protection information on the “+1″ button: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html and the FAQ: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+1/button/.
