This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal data when you use our Service and the choices you have associated with that data.
Protecting your privacy is paramount to us. Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your information.

Definitions

Personal Data

Personal Data means data about a living individual who can be identified from those data (or from those and other information either in our possession or likely to come into our possession).

Usage Data

Usage Data is data collected automatically either generated by the use of the Service or from the Service infrastructure itself (for example, the duration of a page visit).

Cookies

Cookies are small files stored on your device (computer or mobile device).

 

Information Collection and Use

Social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, etc. generally have the ability to comprehensively analyze your user behavior when you visit their websites or sites with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or banner advertisements). Visiting our social media presences will trigger a number of processes which are relevant to data privacy. In detail: when you log in to your social media account and visit us on this social media platform, the operator of this social media portal has the ability to associate this visit with your user account. However your personal data can also under certain circumstances be detected even if you are not logged in or do not possess an account with the social media portal in question. In such cases these data can be acquired for example via cookies which are stored on your terminal device, or by acquiring your IP address.
With the aid of data acquired in this way, the social media portal operator can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored. In this way, advertising tailored to your interests can be displayed to you both within and outside of the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the social network in question, advertisements tailored to your interests can be displayed on all devices to which you are or have been logged in.
Please also note that we are unable to replicate all data processing activities on social media portals. Dependent on the provider, it may be that other processes are performed by social media portal operators. For details please refer to the terms of use and data privacy policies of the respective social media portals.
We collect several different types of information for various purposes to provide and improve our Service to you.
