Cookies

Some of our web pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device’s memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

This tool does not automatically transfer user data to the operators of these platforms. If users are logged into one or more of the social networks, the Share buttons for Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, etc. will display an information window in which the user can edit the text before it is sent.

Our users can share the content of this page on social networks without their providers creating profiles of users’ surfing behavior.

6. Analytics and advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.

IP anonymization

We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website.

Mediavine’s partners use information about your browsing history to serve you with personalized ads (for example, ads about hotels in a certain destination if you have looked them up on another website beforehand). These partners use so-called “cookies”, which are text files stored on your computer that enable an analysis of the way you use the website. Mediavine partners may also use so-called web beacons (invisible graphics). Through these web beacons, information such as the visitor traffic on these pages can be evaluated.

Our website uses the embed function with privacy-enhanced mode from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

If you visit one of our pages featuring a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Here the YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited.

If you’re logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

YouTube is used to help make our website appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

Further information about handling user data, can be found in the data protection declaration of YouTube under https://www.google.com/policies/privacy. Opt-Out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.

8. Newsletter

If you want to receive the newsletter offered on this website, you need to provide your email address, confirm that it is your email address and consent to receiving our newsletter. We will not share this information with third parties other than our newsletter service provider.

The processing of the data you entered in the newsletter registration form takes place on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 a GDPR).

Double Opt-In

The registration for our newsletter takes place in a “double opt-in procedure”. This means that after signing up you will receive an email asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with someone else’s email address. To comply with legal requirements in some countries, the confirmation of the “double opt-in” will be stored and includes the time of registration, location and your IP address.

Revoking Your Consent

You can revoke your consent at any time by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of a newsletter. After this action, we will not send you any more emails. We might store your data for a period of up to two years to be able to show prove of prior consent. This is done on the basis of legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR). The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.

Newsletter Service Provider & Measuring Success

For sending our newsletter we use MailChimp, which is offered by Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA. This is done on the basis of legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR). The data related to sending the newsletter will thus be stored on Mailchimp’s servers in the USA. MailChimp is registered under the EU-US privacy shield and adheres to the EU privacy laws.

Our newsletters contain a so-called “web-beacon”, which can track the opening of newsletters as well as potential link clicks. In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of access, IP address, browser type and operating system). We use this information for statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns, which allows us to analyze the success of our newsletter and make it better. If you don’t want this information to be collected, please don’t subscribe to our newsletter or revoke your consent by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of a newsletter.

For more information, visit Mailchimp’s privacy policy.

Newsletter Sign-up Forms

To collect email addresses for our newsletter, we use the Convert Pro plug-in provided by Brainstorm Force. In some cases, cookies which do not store any personal identifying information are set in your browser when a signup form is displayed. This is done to improve user experience and prevent showing the form to the same visitor again within a short time frame.

Legal basis: Legitimate interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR)
