Our portal may contain programs (plug-ins) from social networks. The following applies to this – using the example of Facebook: These programs are operated exclusively by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (Facebook). On our portal the plug-ins are marked with the Facebook logo or the “like” add-on. When visiting a website on our portal that contains this kind of plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection with Facebook servers, which in turn transmit the content of the plug-in to your browser and is integrated by it into the displayed website.

If you are logged into Facebook during your visit to our website via your personal user account, Facebook can associate the website visit to this account. By interacting with plug-ins e.g. by clicking the “like” button or leaving a comment, this information is transmitted directly to Facebook and saved there.

Section 6 Scalable central measurement procedure
Our website uses the scalable central measurement procedure (SCMP) from the company INFOnline (https://www.infonline.de) for determining key figures about use of our websites. Measurements are collected anonymously. To re-recognise computer systems, the SCMP range measurement alternatively uses either a cookie with the label ivwbox.de or a signature, which is generated from various automatically transmitted information from your computer. IP addresses are not saved during this procedure and are handled in their anonymised form. The range measurement was developed in consideration of data privacy. The aim of range measurement is to statistically calculate the frequency of use and the number of users to a website. At no time are individual users identified. Your identity is always protected. You will not receive any advertisements via the system. For websites that are members of the German Audit Bureau of Circulation (IVW www.ivw.eu) or are participating in the ‘internet facts’ study by the Working Group for Online Media Research (AGOF www.agof.de), usage statistics are published monthly by the AGOF and the Working Group for Media Analysis (ag.ma - www.agma-mmc.de) and the IVW and can be seen at http://www.agof.de, http://www.agma-mmc.de and http://www.ivw.eu. In addition to publishing measurement data, the IVW also regularly checks that use complies with the rules and data privacy. More information about the SCMP can be found on the INFOnline GmbH website (https://www.infonline.de), which runs the procedure, the data privacy website of the AGOF (https://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the data privacy website of the IVW (http://www.ivw.eu). You can object to data collection by SCMP using the following link: http://optout.ivwbox.de
