1.) The concept of personal data
Personal data is individual information that provides information on a person's identity or factual information about them. This includes, for example, his exact name, address, phone number, fax number and e-mail address. This excludes information whose content is not directly related to a person's identity or factual data, and is therefore not related to the person, for example, the number of visitors to a given person. site.
2.) Collection of personal data
B2B Media Group GmbH collects the necessary personal data only for the purposes you have agreed to. For legal reasons, we sometimes have to register the email addresses of all users of our online forums that post comments. This is the reason why you must register before you can write articles on the forums.
We also ask for your personal data when you participate in a game of chance or when you consult us for questions. For this we need at least your e-mail address. When it comes to games of chance, we ask you in practice to give us your consent to send advertising. Participation in games of chance is not dependent on your consent. More data is needed when we have to send you your earnings. You can, however, visit all areas of the page and also read the comments found on the online forums, without delivering any personal information. In the case of an order of newsletters, you will receive both editorial content and information and offers on our products and those of our partners. Your address will not be sent to third parties. Using newsletters allows you to record how you open and click. These data are anonymous and pseudonymized and materially dissociated from your personal data during registration. In addition, we refer you to your right of objection set out in Article 10.
3.) Storage of personal data
We send to third parties the e-mail addresses we have registered only if the police, the court or the public prosecutor so requires, if there is a legal obligation to do so or a declaration written or electronic consent.We record other data that you have provided to us, as part of an order for products, questions, or award of winnings, on protected computers within Germany. Your data is used exclusively for the purposes that you want and that you have made known to us previously.
Our employees are bound by data secrecy in accordance with § 5 BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act). We have taken technical and organizational measures under § 9 of the BDSG to protect your data and also remain vigilant with our partners so that they also take appropriate measures to ensure the protection of your data.

Cookies are not programs, so they can not harm your computer. Cookies are currently used by a large number of websites. No personal data is collected through them. They simply allow to associate the visitor with the user profile registered for him. But since the profile of this user is, as has already been indicated, managed under a pseudonym, the protection of the privacy of the customer is also ensured when using cookies. You can disable the registration of cookies or program your computer to be informed when sending cookies.
5.) Behavioral advertising
Our marketing partners advertise on our website on our behalf. As part of this advertising, our advertising partners may optionally place cookies on your computer or retrieve cookies data already placed. Information about your visit to the website, such as the frequency with which ads are displayed (but not your name, address, or other personal information), is kept for the purpose of displaying content that corresponds to you.
The process described above, also known as "behavioral targeting", is conducted by us and partly by other companies that also advertise for other websites. These companies then create their own user profiles via cookies and use their own targeting system to select the collected data in order to adapt their advertising to the user.
6.) Internet Analysis and Social Network Services
We sometimes use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", text files that are placed on your computer, to help analyze your use of the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to a Google server located in the United States and will be stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the site, compile reports on website activity for operators of the website and provide services related to the use of the website and the Internet.
We sometimes use, in articles and videos, a recommendation function of Facebook ("Like" button). You can recommend content, which your Facebook friends will be informed about. If you do not click the button or are not registered on Facebook, no Facebook cookie will be placed on your computer. A cookie is placed on your computer only if you register for Facebook.
We remind you that if you have a Facebook profile and are logged in, after clicking on the "Like" button, this information is sent to your Facebook profile. Other users can then see that you recommend this article. The privacy settings you choose yourself on Facebook determine which users exactly get this information.
If you visit a page with the "Like" button, your IP address will be sent to Facebook. For reasons of confidentiality, however, it will be anonymised, so that no conclusion on the computer or on its user is possible.
We can not accept any liability for the services of third party sites. However, we will always act to ensure that our partners meet privacy standards that match ours.
Log files At each visit, the access data is kept in a log file, the server log.
This data includes the following information:
your IP address (with which your computer can be unambiguously identified),
the remote host (name and IP address of the computer requesting the page),
the time, the state, the amount of data transferred and the site from which you arrived at the requested page (referent),
the type and version of the browser (user agent).
9.) Market Research
We carry out market research ourselves and take part in studies carried out by independent partners such as the "Internet facts" of AGOF eV (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online Forschung) and others. Sometimes during these studies a string of characters is kept in a cookie on your computer. This chain is randomly determined and is statistically unique. However, it can not be linked to a particular person and is therefore anonymous. Such cookies are used for technical reasons and are used, for example, to carry out market surveys that provide information on the use of Internet services. We only work with partners who also take your privacy seriously,
