By using the Ser­vice, you agree to the col­lec­tion and use of inform­a­tion in accord­ance with this policy. Unless oth­er­wise defined in this Pri­vacy Policy, terms used in this Pri­vacy Policy have the same mean­ings as in our Terms and Con­di­tions, access­ible at

Inform­a­tion col­lec­tion and use
While using our Ser­vice, we may ask you to provide us with cer­tain per­son­ally iden­ti­fi­able inform­a­tion that can be used to con­tact or identi­fy you. Per­son­ally iden­ti­fi­able inform­a­tion (“Per­son­al Inform­a­tion”) may include, but is not lim­ited to:

Log data
We col­lect inform­a­tion that your browser sends whenev­er you vis­it our Ser­vice (“Log Data”). This Log Data may include inform­a­tion such as your computer’s Inter­net Pro­tocol (“IP”) address, browser type, browser ver­sion, the pages of our Ser­vice that you vis­it, the time and date of your vis­it, the time spent on those pages and oth­er stat­ist­ics.

Cook­ies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonym­ous unique iden­ti­fi­er. Cook­ies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive.We use “cook­ies” to col­lect inform­a­tion. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cook­ies or to indic­ate when a cook­ie is being sent. How­ever, if you do not accept cook­ies, you may not be able to use some por­tions of our Ser­vice.

Pixel tags from Ver­wer­tungs­gesell­schaft WORT (VG WORT)
We use VG WORT (Munich) “ses­sion cook­ies” to meas­ure page or text views in order to determ­ine copy prob­ab­il­ity levels. Ses­sion cook­ies are small inform­a­tion pack­ages that a pro­vider saves in the work­ing memory of the site vis­it­or’s com­puter. They con­tain a ran­domly gen­er­ated unique iden­ti­fic­a­tion num­ber, a so-called ses­sion ID. They also con­tain inform­a­tion on their ori­gin and their reten­tion peri­od. Ses­sion cook­ies can­not save any oth­er data. The meas­ure­ment is then car­ried out by Kantar Deutsch­land GmbH using its Scal­able Cent­ral Meas­ure­ment Meth­od (SZM). This helps identi­fy the copy prob­ab­il­ity level of indi­vidu­al texts in order to cal­cu­late the leg­ally stip­u­lated remu­ner­a­tion of authors and pub­lish­ers. We do not use cook­ies to col­lect per­son­al data.
Our web­site can also be used without cook­ies. Most browsers are set up to accept cook­ies by default. You can, how­ever, deac­tiv­ate cook­ies or set your browser to inform you whenev­er they are sent.

Pri­vacy policy for the use of the Scal­able Cent­ral Meas­ur­ing Meth­od

Our PC and mobile web­sites use the “Scal­able Cent­ral Meas­ure­ment Meth­od” (SZM) of Kantar Deutsch­land GmbH to determ­ine the stat­ist­ic­al copy prob­ab­il­ity level of indi­vidu­al texts. Anonym­ous stat­ist­ics are col­lec­ted. The page view meas­ure­ment meth­od uses either a ses­sion cook­ie or a sig­na­ture to recog­nise com­puter sys­tems. A sig­na­ture is cre­ated from vari­ous pieces of inform­a­tion auto­mat­ic­ally issued by your browser. IP addresses are only pro­cessed in anonymised form. Due regard was paid to data pro­tec­tion in the devel­op­ment of the meth­od. The sole aim of the meth­od is to determ­ine the copy prob­ab­il­ity of indi­vidu­al texts. At no time are indi­vidu­al users iden­ti­fied. Your iden­tity remains pro­tec­ted at all times. You will not receive any advert­ising via the sys­tem.
