Data Privacy Declaration

The protection of your personal data is important to us. You can visit our website without entering any personal data. As far as on our side personal data are collected, this takes place on voluntary basis, as far as possible. Therefore we process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal regulations. In this privacy policy we inform you about the most important aspects of data processing within our website. With order of competent authorities, we may provide information about this data in individual cases, insofar as this is necessary for law enforcement purposes like preventing danger or to enforce intellectual property rights. A collection and processing of personal data, which is not listed in the privacy policy, does not take place.

In principle, we process personal data of our users only insofar as this is necessary to provide a functioning website. The personal data will be deleted as soon when the purpose of the storage is obsolete.

Data Protection Responsible

The responsible subject in the sense of the GDPR as well as other data protection regulations is

Notebookcheck Publishing GmbH
Herbortgasse 38/3/28 1110 Wien, Austria

Name and address Data

Address data are not collected on this website (a possible exception are competitions, see below). Names, addresses and e-mail addresses are not made accessible to third parties by Notebookcheck Publishing GmbH except to persons (especially freelancing editors), who carry out assignments for Notebookcheck, if these persons are instructed to answer the message or if there are bugs or other content problems in Notebookcheck which shall be solved. Furthermore, Austrian security and tax authorities will be provided with personal data on request, if there is a legal basis for this. That hardly ever happens.

Youth Protection

This site is not specifically targeted at minors. Specifically, in the user consent dialog described below, an approval / disapproval is requested from the user. In some countries, such consent is not valid below the age of 16. An age limit query is inappropriate because we can not check the truth for millions of users in any way. The use of the website under the age of 16 is expressly prohibited without the consent of legal guardians, unless the user is aware that a lower national age limit applies to him.

Right of Information and Cancellation

At any time, you have the right to inquire about the data collected about your person free of charge. You have the right at any time to revoke your consent to the use of your personal information with effect for the future. For information, please contact us via the contact form. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

Contact form and comments

If you contact us via the form on the website or by e-mail, your data will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for follow-up questions up to several months. We will not share this information without your consent, except to the relevant editors and translators who work for Notebookcheck as a self-employed person, if we deem necessary to respond to the request and treatment thereof.

You can specify in a message at which time you want some of your messages to be deleted. The name and email address are provided by field, but not mandatory. If no e-mail address is given, an answer on our part is obviously not possible.

The same applies for the comment input field.

Competitions

Occasionally, competitions are offered with the purpose of making Notebookcheck more attractive to readers. In order to be able to deliver prices, the collection of names and address data is necessary. The address data are only collected for this purpose and destroyed after completion of the competition (the duration is a few weeks to months). No advertising will be sent to the collected addresses. We will not disclose the address details without your consent, except to the relevant editors and translators who work for Notebookcheck as freelancers, if we consider this necessary for the data processing. Competitions may be useful for the creation of editorial content. In this case, data processing for journalistic purposes is covered by Austrian law (opening clause).

User Approval Dialogue:

A text box prompts you to deny data use for personal advertising based on cookies. In the case of a refusal, no individualized cookies will be set, technical errors excepted.

Upon approval by the user, cookies may be placed by our partners, Google, Snigelweb, Ströer, Exponential, Spoods, Addefend and VG Word, but not all at the same time.

From a technical point of view, it may be unavoidable to wrongly assign certain IP addresses not to the EU area, though the website was accessed from the EU area.  In that case, the user is not confronted with the consent dialog.

The user consent dialog is provided on a voluntary basis. If, for whatever reason, it does not appear or does not produce the desired effect, we appeal to the legitimate interest of user-based advertising. Basically, this interest is the fact that it is currently not possible for the majority of the online media industry to fulfill a media function without advertising revenue from personal advertising. Non-personalized advertising does not render enough money to finance media services.


Here are informations about (and mainly from) our privacy-relevant partners (cookie setters):

Google Analytics

This website uses the "Google Analytics", a service provided by Google Inc. to analyze users' website usage. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. The service uses "cookies" - text files stored on your device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the US and stored there.

On this website the IP anonymization is activated. The IP address of users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. This reduction eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. Under the terms of the agreement, the information is collected to compile an evaluation of website activity and provide Internet-related services.

You have the option to prevent the storage of cookies on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all features of this website without restriction if your browser does not allow cookies.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link leads you to the corresponding plugin: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

Here's more information on data usage by Google Inc .: support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245

Google Adexchange

Google and its partners use different technologies to collect and store data. This may also include cookies or similar technologies that identify your browser or hardware. In addition, Google also uses these technologies to collect and store data when you interact with services that are part of its cooperation with partners, such as advertising services. Google's primary ad serving cookie for non-Google sites is IDE. It is stored in browsers under the domain doubleclick.net.

As Google wants to offer users a clear choice and to inform them about the ad that appears, ads appear on certain sites on the Google Display Network with an appropriate alert icon, such as the "Privacy Info" or "Google Ads" icon. This alert icon can not be disabled. The industry standard "Privacy Info" icon Ad Choices icon will expand to Expanded Ad Choices icon when the user hovers the mouse over the icon. If he clicks on this label, a page hosted by Google is called. It contains a text created by the IAB and the settings for advertising, which you can use to define categories of ads. There is also a link to the Your Online Choices page, which provides a guide to behavioral online advertising and online privacy.

Snigelweb

Cookies and tracking technologies are used by SnigelWeb Inc. and their partners (such as advertising, marketing and analytics), affiliates, or analytics or service providers. These technologies are used in analyzing trends, administering the site, tracking users’ movements around the site and to gather demographic information about our the base as a whole. Snigelweb may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual as well as aggregated basis. Snigelwebs partners may also use such technologies to deliver advertisements to you as described below. Snigelweb uses cookies to remember users’ settings, authentication, preferences and analytics. Users can control the use of cookies at the individual browser level. If you reject cookies, you may still use our site, but your ability to use some features, ads or areas of our site may be limited.

Log File Information: Log file information is automatically reported by your browser each time you access a web page. When you access the Service, Snigelwebs servers automatically record certain information that your web browser sends whenever you visit any website. These server logs may include information such as your web request, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type, referring / exit pages and URLs, number of clicks, domain names, landing pages, pages viewed, and other such information. Snigelweb does not link this automatically-collected data to personally identifiable information.

Ströer

Ströer SSP GmbH uses cookies to optimize the advertising performance. These cookies are small information files that are temporarily stored on your computer. Ströer SSP acts independently according to Article 4 (7) of the GDPR as the controller. In this context, Ströer SSP collects and processes user data from end users for the purpose of delivering individualized advertising on the pages of the publisher. The publisher does not control this technical process and is not responsible for it. You can prevent it by selecting "Block cookies" in your browser settings. However, this can result in a functional restriction of the site. You have a right to get information about the data stored about you and, if necessary, a right to correction, deletion or blocking of this data. The information can also be given to you electronically on request. Please contact us for information: René Rautenberg, René Rautenberg GmbH Otto-Hahn-Straße 13b85521 Riemerling near Munich TEL 0800 81 13 377FAX 089 552 94 87 9 [email protected]

Exponential

Exponential Interactive Inc collects and profiles personal data in the form of IP address and cookie ID from users on the website in order to provide targeted online advertising and ad measurement. For more details including access requests and complaints, contact the data protection officer via [email protected]

Spoods

It is a Contextual Video Network that delivers keyword-based video advertising with semantic targeting. Spoods sets a cookie for frequency management / capping. These data are not personal or personally identifiable informations. Spoods does not store this information in any database at any time, and at no point gives information to another company. In the context of the delivery of advertising material (hosting), a cookie is additionally set by an independent 3rd party service provider, namely Brightcove or Flowplayer, who according to our examination also do not collect any personal data.

Addefend

Notebookcheck uses AdDefend, a service of AdDefend GmbH, Borselstrasse 3, 22765 Hamburg to display recovered advertising (anti adblocking). This service uses cookies with a randomly generated ID to determine if you have visited Notebookcheck before. For this purpose, the service creates a pseudonymous usage profile under this ID. You may object to the use of these cookies by AdDefend at any time by using the opt-out option at www.addefend.com/opt-out/. This opt-out only applies to the device you are using and also loses its validity if you delete your cookies.

VG Wort

The Verwertungsgesellschaft Wort uses "session cookies" to measure accesses to texts in order to record the copy probability. Session cookies are small pieces of information that a provider stores in the memory of the visitor's computer. In a session cookie, a randomly generated unique identification number is stored, a so-called session ID. In addition, a cookie contains information about its origin and the retention period. Session cookies can not save other data. These measurements are carried out by INFOnline GmbH. They help to determine the copying probability of individual texts for the remuneration of legal claims of authors and publishers. VG Wort does not collect personal data via cookies. The only goal of the procedure is to determine the copy probability of individual texts. At no time individual users are identified. Your identity always remains protected. You will not receive advertising through the system.


Note: Parts of the privacy policy, especially regarding the user consent dialog, are only valid from 25.05.2018.
