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.
