Use of cookies
In order to improve the surfing experience on the Website, GG Publishing uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files, generally made up of letters and numbers, that are saved by the users’ web browser on their PC and contain pseudo-anonymised data. Cookies permit a website to recognise the users’ computer, to track their browsing through several pages of a website and to identify those users who return to a website. There are cookies for technical, analytical and profiling purposes.

 

The Website uses the following technical cookies:
To record anonymised data about the user’s visits to the “e-magazine” subpage of the Website, e.g. the number of visits, the average time spent on the subpage and which pages were loaded for the purpose of optimising the content of the Website; to identify the user’s end device with which content is read on the “e-magazine” subpage of the Website; to record the user’s visits to the “e-magazine” subpage of the Website, in particular which subpages were loaded.
GG Publishing shall inform users that they can deactivate or remove cookies in their Web browser, by following the instructions detailed under the following links:
Internet Explorer ((https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/17442/windows-internet-explorer-delete-manage-cookies).
Mozilla Firefox (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/delete-cookies-remove-info-websites-stored).
Safari (https://support.apple.com/kb/PH19214?viewlocale=en_US&locale=de_DE).

The website also makes use of the following third-party analytical cookies:

Google Analytics
The Website uses the web analytics service Google Analytics by Google Inc. („Google“) in order to analyse the use of the web pages. The information generated by the cookies about the use of the web pages is generally sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. GG Publishing uses Google Analytics solely with the extension “ga (‘set’, ‘anonymizeIp’, true)”, ensuring that IP addresses are only processed as a shortened version, in order to exclude any direct reference to individuals. Google may share data with third parties, provided that this is required by law or third parties process data on behalf of Google. Google will not associate the IP address of the user with any other Google data.
Users can prevent the recording and storing of data by Google Analytics at any time by installing a browser plugin released by Google which can be downloaded at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

The Website does not use any profiling cookies.

Social Media Plugins
This Website uses social media plug-ins offered by the most important social networks (e.g. Facebook and Twitter). When visiting the Website, the browsing data may be transferred directly to the social networks concerned, even without users’ direct interaction. Users acknowledge and agree that the operation of social networks’ plugins is managed directly by the company that manages the corresponding plugin. When users use the plugins available through the Website (e.g. log in with their login details to a social network, or link their accounts, click on the Facebook “Like” or “Share” button), the users’ browser establishes a direct connection with the server of that social network, which sends the contents of the plugin directly to the users’ browser.
The Data Controller may therefore receive data relating to users, in accordance with the social network’s Terms of Use and Privacy Policy, and may add data to users’ personal data already collected through its own services. If the user opts to share information with the social networks, GG Publishing shall share the data with them in accordance with the user’s preferences. To prevent those social networks from collecting the personal information of the user, please check the relevant terms on the social network website.

The Website currently only uses the following social media plugin:

Facebook
The Website uses Facebook Social Plugins operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). Whenever users of Facebook access technology pages of GG Publishing or vice versa, the users’ browser shall establish a direct link with Facebook servers. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can attribute the visit by the user to their Facebook account. If the user interacts with the plugins, e.g. by clicking on the “Like” button or posting a comment, the respective information is transmitted directly from the user’s browser to Facebook and saved there. The purpose and scope of the processing of data by Facebook, in addition to the respective user rights and setting options for the protection of their privacy, can be found in the Facebook Privacy Policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).
