To collect statistical information on how our offers are used, our website works with the “Scalable Centralized Measurement System” (“Skalierbares zentrales Messverfahren, SZM) developed by INFOnline (https://www.infonline.de). The system collects anonymous data. To recognize computer systems, the SZM audience measurement uses either a cookie, based on the answer-back code “ivwbox.de” or, alternatively, a signature generated on the basis of a number of different information automatically sent back from your computer. This method doesn’t store IP addresses; it only processes them anonymously.
The audience measurement has been developed in due consideration of data protection. Its aim is to evaluate statistically the intensity of use and the number of users of a website. At no time, single users are identified. Their identity remains protected at all times and they do not receive any advertisement about the system.
For web projects [of companies] that are members of the German Information Group for the Identification of the Dissemination of Advertising Media (Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. – IVW – www.ivw.eu) or that participate in the study „internet facts“, conducted by the German Working Group for Online Media Research (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. – AGOF – www.agof.de), the audience statistics will be published monthly by AGOF and the German Working Group Media Analysis (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e.V. – ag.ma – www.agma-mmc.de) as well as by the IVW. The statistics can be read at http://www.agof.de, http://www.agma-mmc.de and http://www.ivw.eu.
Further to the publication of performance data the IVW inspects regularly if the SZM method is used in compliance with regulations and data protection. You will find more information about the SZM method on the website of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de) who is the operator of the SZM method, on the AGOF data protection website (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and on the IVW data protection website (http://www.ivw.eu).
