6. Utilising the scalable central measurement procedure (SCM)
(1) Our website utilises the measurement procedure ("SCMnG") from INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de) to determine and evaluate statistical parameters about the utilisation of our offers. The objective of the range measurement is to statistically determine and evaluate the usage intensity, the number of users of a website and the surfing behaviour - on the basis of a uniform standard procedure - and thereby to be able to obtain market-wide comparable values.
Websites which are members of the Informationgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e. V. (Information Community for Determining the Distribution of Marketing and Advertising Bodies) or participate in the studies of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e. V. (Working Group for Online Research) (AGOF - http://www.agof.de), will have the usage statistics regularly published by AGOF and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e. V. (Media Analysis Working Group) (agma - http://www.agma-mmc.de), as well as the IVW and can be viewed on the respective websites.
1. Data processing
INFOnline GmbH collects and processes data according to the German Data Protection Law. Technical and organisational measures will ensure that individual users cannot be identified at any point in time. Data which could possibly be related to a specific, identifiable person will be anonymised as soon as possible.
1.1 Anonymising the IP address
Every device in the Internet requires a unique address, the so-called IP address, to transmit data. The required, at least short-term storage, of the IP address is technically necessary due to the functioning method of the Internet. The IP addresses will be shortened before any processing and only processed again anonymously. There will be no no storage or processing of the full IP addresses.
1.2 Geolocalisation up to the level of the Federal States/Regions
A so-called geolocalisation i.e. the allocation of a website login to the location of the login will be executed exclusively on the basis of the anonymised IP address and only up to the geographical level of the Federal States/Regions. Under no circumstances can the geographical information gained in this way be utilised to draw conclusions about the specific place of residence of a user.
1.3 Identification number of the device
The range measurement alternatively utilises either a cookie with the identification "ioam.de", a "Local Storage Object" or an anonymous signature, which is created from various automatically transmitted information from your browser, to recognise computer systems. The validity for the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.
1.4 Registration recognition
The user ID can be transmitted to INFOnline as an anonymous checksum when logging in, if available, to measure distributed usage (use of a service from different devices).
The stored usage procedures will be deleted at the latest after 7 months.
When you would not like to participate in the measurement, then you can object under the following link: http://optout.ioam.de
Additional information regarding data protection in the measurement procedure can be found on the website of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de), which operates the measurement procedure, the data protection website of AGOF (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the data protection website of IVW (http://www.ivw.eu).
(2) We utilise the SCM procedure in order to be able to analyse and regularly improve the utilisation of our website. We can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user with the statistics gained. The legal principle for utilising the SCM procedure is Article 6 Paragraph 1 S. 1 Lit. from DSGVO.
