We collect information from you when you access www.1914-1918-online.net. For purposes of identification and tracking unauthorized access attempts to this domain as well as for purposes of optimization of web-based services in connection with the use of the web pages of the above-named domain, user data are stored and used to create anonymized access statistics.
We confine ourselves strictly to what is technically necessary and permitted by law. We collect and use personal data only with your prior consent or where allowed by law. It is important to us that you understand why we collect data and what we use them for. More information can be found below.
If you have any questions about this privacy statement, we will be happy to answer them. Please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Personal information is information that can be used to identify you. This includes information such as your name, postal or IP address (if not anonymized), telephone number, and e-mail address, but not information that is not associated with your identity (such as anonymous log files in which the used browser types are logged).
Data provided by you (e.g., data input via a web form) can be or contain personal data. We store your data only at your request and to the extent needed (for example, for registration for an event) or for data backup. The specific use of such data is indicated in the respective context.
When you view the web pages of the above-named website or one of its subdomains, a log file is automatically created and stored on the server. Such files contain the web page you visited, the previous website you visited just before ours (in case it was a search engine, also the terms entered), date, time, the operating system you are using, features of the display (resolution in pixels and the so-called pixel-ratio for the detection of high-resolution displays), and the browser you are using (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, etc.). Additionally, the size of the transferred data amount, a so-called HTTP status code (for example to identify a successfully transmitted web page), and the IP address of your computer (e.g., PC or smartphone) – whereby the IP address is immediately anonymized through deletion of the last octet of the address – are also stored.
The collection and use of information stored in the log file is only for anonymous evaluation for statistical purposes (for example, an analysis of user behavior, which pages of the website or subdomain are accessed, which browsers are used, etc.) and thereby to improve our services. A mapping of IP address to the user ID does not occur. It is not possible to trace the analysis results to a specific IP address.
The information processed as explained above (see points 1 and 2) is electronically collected and used by Freie Universität Berlin, the Center for Digital Systems (CeDiS) and stored centrally by Freie Universität Berlin's Hochschul-Rechenzentrum (ZEDAT).
The information is not disclosed to third parties or used outside of Freie Universität Berlin, unless you have given us your consent to do so or we are required or authorized by law to do so (for example, in relation to law enforcement, presumed plagiarism, or other copyright infringements).
The web pages of the above-named domain sometimes use external content from third-party providers. Integrating external content such as videos, presentations, news feeds, e.g., from social media services can enhance the content of a website. As with the use of social plugins (see point 6), data protection aspects need to be taken into consideration. For that reason, the above-described “two-step solution” is implemented for integrating content from third-party providers. You can recognize this type of content when you see the following box, for example, where Google Maps are integrated into the website.
Analogous to the use of social plugins (see point 6), the following also applies here: By clicking the link you agree to a one-time data exchange between the respective websites of the above-named domain and the relevant third party. Under the default setting, data are not transmitted to the provider of the external content. You can permanently activate data exchange between the pages of the above-named domain and the provider of the external content (example here: maps.google.de), and you can revise this decision again at any time.
