VG Word / Scalable Central Measurement Method

We use the "Scalable Central Measurement Method" (SZM) of INFOnline GmbH (INFOnline GmbH, Brühler Str. 9, D-53119 Bonn.) For the determination of statistical parameters for determining the copy probability of texts. Anonymous measurements are taken. Alternatively, traffic metering uses a session cookie or a signature created from various automatically transmitted information from your browser to recognize computer systems. IP addresses are only processed in anonymous form. The procedure was developed in compliance with data protection. The only goal of the procedure is to determine the copying probability of individual texts. At no time individual users are identified. Your identity always remains protected. You will not receive advertising through the system.

Many of our pages are provided with JavaScript calls, through which we report the access to the collecting society Wort (VG Wort). We allow our authors to participate in the distributions of the VG Wort, which complies with the statutory remuneration for the use of copyrighted works in accordance with Art. § 53 UrhG.

Here user data and metadata of the users are processed, whereby the IP addresses are shortened and the measurement procedures are pseudonymous. The shortened IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. The usage data in connection with a pseudonymous assignment value ("identifier") are stored for a maximum of 6 months.

The users also have an opt-out available to counteract the collection for the above purposes: optout.ioam.de. Further information can be found in the data protection statement of INFOnline www.infonline.de/datenschutz/benutzer.
