Data privacy

At workingholiday.blog we consider the privacy of our visitors to be extremely important. This privacy policy document describes in detail the types of personal information is collected and recorded by workingholiday.blog and how we use it.

Log Files

Like many other Web sites, workingholiday.blog makes use of log files. These files merely logs visitors to the site – usually a standard procedure for hosting companies and a part of hosting services's analytics. The information inside the log files includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet Service Provider (ISP), date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and possibly the number of clicks. This information is used to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses, and other such information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable. IP adresses are shorted for the last digits, so after your visit no other information can get linked to you.

Cookies and Web Beacons

workingholiday.blog uses cookies to store information about visitors' preferences, to record user-specific information on which pages the site visitor accesses or visits, and to personalize or customize our web page content based upon visitors' browser type or other information that the visitor sends via their browser. We use cookies to hide popups or email forms if you already subscribed.

Cookies and traffic reports

We use “session cookies” from VG Wort, Munich, to measure access to texts in order to determine the probability of copying. Session cookies are small units of information that a provider stores in the main memory of the visitor's computer. A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. In addition, a cookie contains information about its origin and the period of storage. Session cookies cannot store other data. These measurements are carried out by INFOnline GmbH using the Scalable Central Measurement Method (SZM). They help to determine the copying probability of individual texts for the remuneration of legal claims of authors and publishers. We do not collect personal data via cookies.

We thus enable our authors to participate in the distributions of VG Wort, which ensure the legal remuneration for the use of copyrighted works in accordance with § 53 UrhG.

A use of our offers is also possible without cookies. Most browsers are set to accept cookies automatically. However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser to inform you as soon as cookies are sent.

Data protection declaration for the use of the Scalable Central Measuring Method

Our website and our mobile web offer use the “Scalable Central Measurement Method” (SZM) of Kantar Deutschland GmbH for the determination of statistical parameters to determine the copy probability of texts.

Anonymous measured values are collected in the process. The access number measurement uses alternatively a session cookie or a signature, which is created from various automatically transmitted information of your browser, for the recognition of computer systems. IP addresses are only processed in anonymised form.

The procedure was developed in compliance with data protection. The sole aim of the procedure is to determine the probability of individual texts being copied.

At no time are individual users identified. Their identity always remains protected. You will not receive any advertising via the system.
