Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser.

5. Social Media and Video Portals

We do not use plugins or buttons from social media or video portals on the pages of Hannover.de Internet GmbH. However, as embedded contents of third parties (iframes) may contain them, the corresponding data protection regulations follow here.

Facebook plugins (Like & Share buttons)

Iframes on this website may include plugins for the social network Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. The Facebook plugins can be recognized by the Facebook logo or the Like button on our site. For an overview of Facebook plugins, see https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When you visit our site, a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server is established via the plugin. This enables Facebook to receive information that you have visited our site from your IP address. If you click on the Facebook "Like button" while you are logged into your Facebook account, you can link the content of our site to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to associate visits to our site with your user account. Please note that, as the operator of this site, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted to Facebook or of how Facebook uses these data. For more information, please see Facebook's privacy policy at https://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.

If you do not want Facebook to associate your visit to our site with your Facebook account, please log out of your Facebook account.

Twitter plugin

Functions of the Twitter service may have been integrated into Iframes used on our website and app. These features are offered by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. When you use Twitter and the “Retweet” function, the websites you visit are connected to your Twitter account and made known to other users. In doing so, data will also be transferred to Twitter. We would like to point out that, as the provider of these pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or how it will be used by Twitter. For more information on Twitter's privacy policy, please go to https://twitter.com/privacy.

Your privacy preferences with Twitter can be modified in your account settings at https://twitter.com/account/settings.

Google+ plugin

Iframes on this website may use Google+ functions. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Collection and disclosure of information: Using the Google +1 button allows you to publish information worldwide. By means of the Google+ button, you and other users can receive custom content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the fact that you have +1'd a piece of content and information about the page you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your +1 can be displayed together with your profile name and photo in Google services, for example in search results or in your Google profile, or in other places on websites and advertisements on the Internet.

Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google + button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used by all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace a different name that you have used to share content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be shown to users who know your email address or other information that can identify you.

Use of collected data: In addition to the uses mentioned above, the information you provide is used in accordance with the applicable Google data protection policies. Google may publish summary statistics about users' +1 activity or share it with users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers, or affiliate websites.

Instagram plugin

Iframes on this website may contain functions of the Instagram service. These functions are offered by Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA.

If you are logged into your Instagram account, you can click the Instagram button to link the content of our pages with your Instagram profile. This means that Instagram can associate visits to our pages with your user account. As the provider of this website, we expressly point out that we receive no information on the content of the transmitted data or its use by Instagram.

For more information, see the Instagram Privacy Policy: https://instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.

Iframes on this website may use the buttons of the Tumblr service. It is operated by Tumblr, Inc., 35 East 21st St., 10th Floor, New York, NY 10010, USA.

These functions allow you to share a post or a page on Tumblr or to follow the provider on Tumblr. When you visit one of our websites using the Tumblr button, the browser establishes a direct connection to the Tumblr servers. We have no influence on the amount of data that Tumblr gathers and transmits with the plugin. Based on our current knowledge, we believe that the user's IP address and the URL of the respective website are transmitted.

Further information can be found in Tumblr's privacy policy at https://www.tumblr.com/policy/de/privacy.

Iframes on this website may use functions from the LinkedIn network. The service is provided by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Pinterest plugin

Iframes on this website may contain functions of the Pinterest social network, operated by Pinterest Inc., 635 High Street, Palo Alto, CA, 94301, USA.

When you visit a page containing the Pinterest social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Pinterest servers.

Measuring method ("SZMnG") of INFOnline GmbH

Our website uses the measurement method ("SZMnG") of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.INFOnline.de) to determine statistical parameters about the use of our offers. The aim of the usage measurement is to statistically determine the number of visits to our website, the number of website visitors and their surfing behaviour - on the basis of a uniform standard procedure - and thus to obtain market-wide comparable values. For all digital offers made by members of the Informationgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. (IVW - http://www.ivw.eu) or the studies of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. (AGOF - http://www.agof.de), the usage statistics are regularly published by AGOF and the Media-Analyse e.V. working group. (agma - http://www.agma-mmc.de) and published with the performance value "Unique User" and by IVW with the performance values "Page Impression" and "Visits". These ranges and statistics can be viewed on the respective websites.

Legal basis for processing by INFOnline GmbH

Measurement by INFOnline GmbH using the SZMnG measurement method is carried out with legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The purpose of the processing of personal data is the compilation of statistics and the creation of user categories. The statistics serve to be able to trace and document the use of our offer. The user categories form the basis for an interest-fair adjustment of advertising media and/or advertising measures. For the marketing of this website a usage measurement, which guarantees a comparability to other market participants, is indispensable. Our legitimate interest arises from the economic usability of the findings from the statistics and user categories and the market value of our website - also in direct comparison with third-party websites - which can be determined on the basis of the statistics.

In addition, we have a legitimate interest in making the pseudonymous data available to INFOnline, AGOF and IVW for market research purposes (AGOF, agma) and for statistical purposes (INFOnline, IVW). Furthermore, we have a legitimate interest in making the pseudonymized data available to INFOnline for the further development and provision of appropriate advertising material.

Type of data

INFOnline GmbH collects the following data, which is related to persons according to the EU DSGVO:

  • IP address: On the Internet, every device needs a unique address, the so-called IP address, to transmit data. The at least short-term storage of the IP address is technically necessary due to the functioning of the Internet. The IP addresses are shortened by 1 byte before any processing and are only processed further in anonymized form. No storage or further processing of the unabridged IP addresses takes place.
  • A randomly generated client identifier: The range processing uses either a cookie with the identification "ioam.de", a "Local Storage Object" or a signature that is created from various automatically transmitted information of your browser for the recognition of computer systems. This identification is unique for a browser as long as the cookie or local storage object is not deleted. A measurement of the data and subsequent assignment to the respective client identifier is therefore also possible if you call up other websites that also use the measurement procedure ("SZMnG") of INFOnline GmbH. The validity of the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.

Use of the data

The measurement method of INFOnline GmbH, which is used on this website, determines usage data. This is done in order to collect the performance values for page impressions, visits and clients and to form further key figures (e.g. qualified clients). In addition, the measured data are used as follows:

  • A so-called geolocalization, i.e. the assignment of a website call to the location of the call, takes place exclusively on the basis of the anonymized IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states / regions. Under no circumstances can the geographical information obtained in this way be used to draw conclusions about the specific location of a user.
  • The usage data of a technical client (e.g. a browser on a device) is combined across websites and stored in a database. This information is used for the technical estimation of the social information age and gender and is passed on to the AGOF service providers for further range processing. Within the framework of the AGOF study, social characteristics are technically estimated on the basis of a random sample, which can be assigned to the following categories: Age, gender, nationality, professional activity, marital status, general household information, household income, place of residence, Internet use, online interests, place of use, type of user.

Data storage time at INFOnline GmbH

INFOnline GmbH does not store the complete IP address. The shortened IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. The usage data in connection with the unique identifier are stored for a maximum of 6 months.

Disclosure of data by INFOnline GmbH

The IP address as well as the shortened IP address are not passed on. For the preparation of the AGOF study, data with client identifiers are passed on to the following AGOF service providers:

Crashlytics/Answers

Crashlytics/Answers is used to record app installations and app crashes of news app and ePaper app users. Mobile ad IDs, installation UUID´s, Android IDs and IP addresses are stored. The IP address is read out to determine the geoinformation of the user. Answers keeps the identification data for 180 days. No clear names or email addresses are read out.

User Feedback

We are interested in the opinion of our readers: For this purpose we use the tool "Usabilla" from Usabilla BV, Rokin 16, 1012 KR Amsterdam, Netherlands, via which our users can voluntarily give feedback on our offer via a feedback button. When participating, the tool collects personal data and information on the respective user request (specific or general feedback) through an automated system. The following data can be collected:

  • date and time of access
  • Geolocalization
  • browser version
  • Operating system
  • Display size
  • Terminal device

Social Plugins

On this website, so-called Social Plugins ("Plugins") of Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"), Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Rd Menlo Park CA 94025, USA ("Instagram"), Twitter Inc. 1355 Market Street, Suite 900 San Francisco, CA 94103, USA ("Twitter"), Pinterest Europe Ltd, Palmerston House, 2nd Floor, Fenian Street, Dublin 2, Ireland and Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").

The social plugins are marked with the corresponding logo and the Google plugin is also marked "+1".

An embedded plugin is transferred to the respective provider each time the website is accessed, regardless of whether a user interaction - such as a click on "I like" - takes place. The data transfer is independent of whether a user access exists with the companies that offer the plugin or whether the user is logged in in his access at the time of the website call. Basic data in this case is the dynamic IP address and the current browser string. With the help of this data, user tracking and the creation of user profiles is possible.

Using the Facebook Like button as an example, the functionality of these plugins is easy to explain:

Once the user is logged in to Facebook, all data sent via the Like button can be linked to the user profile. Clicking the Like button also adds the information that the user found the content appealing to the profile.

The data of Facebook users who are not logged in and of persons without a Facebook account are also transferred to Facebook and processed for tracking and profiling purposes.

Further information on the purpose, scope and possibilities for protecting your privacy can be found in the relevant data protection information from Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/policy.php, Instagram, https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388, Twitter, https://twitter.com/de/privacy and Google, http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/ (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).

Privacy Policy of nugg.ad GmbH

This Privacy Policy is intended to provide you with information on our privacy and data protection policies over and above the legal requirement. 

For nugg.ad, the protection of all forms of data is of utmost importance. nugg.ad lives with and from the use of data, but above all from the trust given to us by our customers and our sensitive handling of their data. Our inviolable principles on data protection include the uncompromising respect for the right of informational self-determination of each citizen. 

nugg.ad is uncompromisingly committed to the legal regulations on privacy and data protection in Germany and Europe and, moreover, to perceived privacy requirements. This is why we would like to take this opportunity to inform you about how we handle data at nugg.ad, and the importance of data to our technology.

1. What data do we record and process?

nugg.ad offers website providers a technology that enables them to deliver interest-based advertising. nugg.ad’s interest-based advertising is useful to advertisers because it increases the effectiveness of advertising. It reduces the number of adverts placed, so that you as a user benefit from being shown less advertising, and what you do see is more likely to be relevant to your areas of interest as opposed to random insertion of advertising.

nugg.ad achieves this by using general information based on your internet use. To do this nugg.ad’s technology monitors the usage pattern of internet users by storing a cookie in the browser of your user device with a lifespan of 26 weeks: this means the number of website hits in various subject areas is counted. nugg.ad stores aggregated information about usage patterns with a hashed ID in the nugg.ad system. In other words the specific internet addresses you have visited are not recorded, but nugg.ad stores the frequency of use for various subject areas based on web pages accessed in a cookie (more information about this below under Point 3.). This general information about your internet use can be used by nugg.ad’s technology comprehensively across websites.

Sensitive areas such as religion, health or sexuality are not monitored. Furthermore no other data is recorded. In particular nugg.ad never stores information relating to your name, postal address, email or IP address. We use data protection-friendly technology and a sophisticated anonymisation system, which means that we have no way of finding out who the user viewing a particular page actually is. Data is never passed on to third parties, such as to the local authorities or other companies.

Furthermore nugg.ad carries out surveys of customers on the websites. These surveys are voluntary, unpaid and the user questioned can stop at any point. The information gathered through this means is stored in the nugg.ad system together with a hashed ID.

We will never ask you questions about your ethnic origin, your political opinion, your religious/philosophical views, your trade union activities, your health or your sexual habits. We will also never include these categories when analysing your user behaviour.

Special precautions are taken in the nugg.ad system to comply with the principle of data economy. In particular it is ensured, through an anonymising service operated by an independent party, that no user IP addresses enter the nugg.ad system. Specific technical and contractual arrangements also ensure that this anonymising protection service cannot be circumvented by nugg.ad staff.

2. Target groups and campaign management

nugg.ad identifies relevant target groups for advertising, according to socio-demographic criteria and product interests. We make use of statistical patterns only, which are created by the behaviour of users towards online advertising and editorial content published on websites. To ensure that you are not constantly bombarded with the same advertisements or even feel that they are too intrusive, we count how frequently you are shown an advert in various campaigns. Once you reach a certain level of exposure, you will not be shown any more adverts from that campaign.

3. The use of “cookies”

nugg.ad uses cookies. Of course our cookies do not contain spy, adware, spam or viruses. Our cookies are stored in the browser of your device (for example PC, laptop, smartphone etc.) and have a lifespan of 26 weeks. Both the d-cookie and the dp-cookie are used to analyse target groups and contain the number of page hits in particular subject areas. The ci-cookie is used to store information telling us how often you have been shown a particular advert. The cookies only contain general information about your internet use.

It is not possible for us to trace any information in the cookies back to individual users. In particular we cannot identify a person by name, address or any other data that is directly identifying.

However, of course you have the option of refusing to accept cookies by choosing the relevant setting in your browser, or simply deleting them. There is a short guide to deleting cookies in various browsers on pages 6 & 7.

4. Opt-In/Opt-Out function and Topic Monitor

If you are interested in having advertising even more relevant to your interests displayed on web pages, then you can select an Opt-In here to continue theme-based analysis of your usage habits. If you opt in, the cookie will also be stored on your device’s browser. It will be stored for 1 year. If previously collected nugg.ad cookies (detailed under Point 3) are present in the browser of your device, by setting the Opt-In cookie the following will happen: With your permission the nugg.ad cookie lifespan is lengthened to 1 year (calculated from the moment the cookie is set). Information stored on nugg.ad cookies prior to Opting-In is retained and will be deleted upon the expiration of cookie (maximum 1 year).

You have the right to prevent the recording of information by the nugg.ad system at any time by exercising your right to opt out. If you have already given your consent, you can also cancel it at any time, effective there after. An opt-out will also be stored in a cookie in your browser's device with a lifespan of 10 years, it will be named "nuggstopp", and will be set by "nuggad.net".

Please note that it is not technically possible to detect the Opt-Out if you delete the cookies from your browser.

You can accept or decline online on the nugg.ad homepage or the “My Topic Monitor” page. Click the corresponding button.

The “My Topic Monitor” shows you how nugg.ad has categorised your surfing habits. To do this, the aggregated frequencies of your usage behaviour is read from the cookie, where it is encoded, and displayed in generalised categories. You can find more information on the “My Topic Monitor” page.

5. Data protection

All employees of nugg.ad GmbH who deal with the data mentioned above sign a secrecy agreement in accordance with paragraph §5 of the Federal German Data Protection Law when they are recruited.
