Cookies and reports on access figures
We use “session cookies” from Verwertungsgesellschaft Wort (VG Wort), Munich, to measure access to texts in order to record the probability of copying. Session cookies are small units of information that a provider stores in the RAM 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 storage period. Session cookies cannot store any other data. These measurements are carried out by Kantar Deutschland GmbH using the Scalable Central Measurement Method (SZM). They help to determine the copy probability of individual texts for the remuneration of legal claims of authors and publishers. We do not collect any personal data via cookies.
It is also possible to use our offers without cookies. Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser to notify you as soon as cookies are sent.
Our website and our mobile web offer use the “Scalable Central Measurement Procedure” (SZM) of Kantar Deutschland GmbH to determine statistical parameters for determining the copy probability of texts.
Anonymous measurement values are collected in the process. The access count measurement alternatively uses 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 anonymized form.
The procedure was developed in compliance with data protection. The sole aim of the procedure is to determine the copying probability of individual texts.
At no time are individual users identified. Your identity always remains protected. You will not receive any advertising via the system.
