I do not collect, use and store any personal data from the visitors of my websites or

Personal data are according to § 3 Abs. 1 BDSG individual information about personal or material circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person (person concerned).

Server log files

The provider of this website is the company 1&1 Ionos. 1&1 Ionos automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits there. These are:

  • The type and version of browser used
  • The used operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • The hostname of the accessing computer
  • The time of the server inquiry
  • The IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or precontractual measures.

To Web statistics analysis I use Koko Analytics.

Use of social plugin

This website uses the social media plugin Shariff. 

With Shariff you can use social media without risking your privacy unnecessarily. The c't project Shariff replaces the usual social network share buttons and protects your browsing behavior from prying eyes. Nevertheless, a single click on the button is enough to share information with others. You do not have to do anything else - the webmaster has already taken care of everything.

The usual social media buttons transmit the user data to Facebook & Co. every time a page is called up and provide the social networks with precise information about your surfing behavior (user tracking). You do not have to be logged in or be a member of the network. On the other hand, a Shariff button only establishes direct contact between the social network and the visitor when the latter actively clicks on the share button. 

By doing so, Shariff prevents you from leaving a digital trail on every page you visit and improves privacy. Then you can like it, + 1en or tweet - the social network will not get more information.

The display of "Likes" comes thanks to Shariff from the operator of the page with the buttons. Because Shariff is involved by the webmaster, you do not have to do anything else as a visitor. The widespread share buttons pose a significant privacy problem because they make unnoticed contact with the servers of social networks. For example, Facebook sends the number of "likes" directly to the visitor's browser - logging the individual surfing behavior. 

Shariff acts as an intermediary here: Instead of the browser, the server of the website operator queries the number of likes - and only once a minute to keep traffic to a minimum. The visitor remains anonymous.

Shariff simplifies and replaces the previous 2 click solution, three years ago in the c't article 2 clicks for more privacy was presented. More information about Shariff can be found in the article Protect and sharewho is completely online; There is also a discussion forum for the topic forum c't Shariff - 1 Click for more privacy.
