Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. IP-anonymisation is activated on this website, which means that your IP address will be truncated before being stored. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing them other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP-address that your Browser conveys within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. You can also opt-out from being tracked by Google Analytics with effect for the future by downloading and installing Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Addon for your current web browser: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Alternatively, and especially if you are using a mobile device, you can opt-out of Google Analytics tracking by clicking on this link. This installs a so-called opt-out cookie which prevents data from being tracked on this website. The function remains active until the cookie is deleted. If a cookie has been deleted, it can be reactivated by clicking on the link again.
  2. The website contains links to Twitter and Facebook. When the links are clicked on, some browsers may transmit to Twitter and Facebook the information that the user navigated to them from this website.

He will not make public any non-public personal data to which he has access. Where possible he will minimize the use of personal data, for example by sending general notifications to all followers at once. He will not contact social media followers individually unless they have contacted him individually first.
