Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

YouTube cookies

We embed videos that are externally hosted on YouTube using YouTube’s privacy-enhanced mode. In accordance with YouTube’s embedding videos information page in this mode YouTube will not set cookies on your computer until you click on the YouTube video player. Further, YouTube will not store personally-identifiable cookie information for playbacks of embedded videos under this mode.

Social Networks Cookies

So you can easily share our content on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ we have included sharing buttons on our site. When you visit a page of our website that contains such buttons, no connection with the servers of the provider of the respective social network is established.

Clicking on one of the buttons opens a new window in your browser and calls up the page of the respective service provider on which you can (after entering your login data, if required), share our content.

The privacy implications on this will vary from social network to social network and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.

Controlling Cookies

Google reCAPTCHA

Google reCAPTCHA uses a code embedded in the website, a so-called JavaScript, as part of the review methods that allow an analysis of your use of the website, such as cookies. The automatically collected information about your use of this website, including your IP address, is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Who we share your data with

We will only pass your data to third parties in the following circumstances:

  • you have provided your explicit consent for us to pass data to a named third party;
  • we may be using a third party purely for the purposes of processing data on our behalf and we have in place a data processing agreement with that third party that fulfills our legal obligations in relation to the use of third party data processors; or
  • we are required by law to share your data.

In addition, we will only pass data to third parties outside of the EU where appropriate safeguards are in place as defined by Article 46 of the General Data Protection Regulation.

How long we retain your data

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

We take the principles of data minimisation and removal seriously and have internal policies in place to ensure that we only ever ask for the minimum amount of data for the associated purpose and delete that data promptly once it is no longer required.

What rights you have over your data

You have a range of rights over your data, which include the following:

  • request a copy of personal information we hold about you;
  • ask that we update the personal information we hold about you, or independently correct such personal information that you think is incorrect or incomplete;
  • ask that we delete personal information that we hold about you from live systems, or restrict the way in which we use such personal information
  • object to our processing of your personal information; and/or
  • withdraw your consent to our processing of your personal information (to the extent such processing is based on consent and consent is the only permissible basis for processing).

If you would like to access the rights listed above, or any other legal rights you have over your data under current legislation, please get in touch with us.

How we protect your data

We look for opportunities to minimise the amount of personal information we hold about you. We use technological and operational security measures to protect your information against any unauthorised access or unlawful use – such as ensuring the security of our offices, appropriate password protection and encryption, maintaining a rigorous data protection policy and limiting access to your personal information for those in our company who need to use it.
