A cookie of the American company Google is placed through our website. It is part of Google's "Analytics" service. We use this service to store and receive reports about how visitors use the website, such as the time of the visit, if the site had been visited before, and in which way a visitor arrived on the website. Google can supply this information to third parties if Google is legally obliged to do so, or insofar as third parties process data on behalf of Google. We have no influence over this. We have not authorized Google to use the analytics data obtained for other Google services. The information collected by Google is anonymized as much as possible. Your IP address is explicitly not given. The data is transferred to, and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
Social media plugins
Our website includes buttons to promote web pages (like) or to share (tweet) them on social networks such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Google+. These buttons work by means of bits of code contained in the plug-ins which originate from the social networks themselves. By means of this code, cookies are placed which Cyclomedia cannot influence. The data that is collected through the plug-ins, as well as the further processing, further use and the duration for which it is stored, are therefore exclusively determined by the organizations offering the plug-ins. Please read the privacy statements of LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter to have an insight into what they do with your (personal) data that they process through these cookies.
