Cookies and other technologies
The Sites may include cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, and other technologies. These technologies help us to provide, improve and protect the Sites, such as by personalizing content, tailoring and measuring advertising campaigns, and providing a safer experience. We may use these technologies to recognize you as a visitor, verify your account and determine when you’re logged in, store your preferences and settings, customize the Sites’ contents and advertising, mitigate risks and prevent fraud, measure promotional and advertising effectiveness, assess and analyze which areas of the Sites you visit and use, and gather statistics on the number of visitors and their usage patterns. We may also use these technologies to display Pointillist advertisements when you visit third party websites with which we have marketing relationships.
Cookies or other technologies may be placed on our Sites by third party service providers who perform some of these functions for us.
Your web browser may allow you to block certain cookies and technologies, or to indicate when a cookie is being set by a website. Consult the help or support section of your web browser to learn more about your options. Please note that if you disable or block cookies or other technologies, our Sites may not function properly. Some web browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature. This feature lets you inform websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. These features are not yet uniform across browsers. The Sites are not currently configured to respond to those signals.
Google Web Fonts
For uniform representation of fonts, the Sites may use web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our Sites. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
Our website uses plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
If you visit one of our pages featuring a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Here the YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited.
If you’re logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
YouTube is used to help make our plugin appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
Our website includes plugins for the social network Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. For an overview of Facebook plugins, see https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
If you do not want Facebook to associate your visit to our site with your Facebook account, please log out of your Facebook account.
Your privacy preferences with Twitter can be modified in your account settings at https://twitter.com/account/settings.
Our website contains functions of the Instagram service. These functions are offered by Instagram Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA.
If you are logged into your Instagram account, you can click the Instagram button to link the content of our pages with your Instagram profile. This means that Instagram can associate visits to our pages with your user account. As the provider of this website, we expressly point out that we receive no information on the content of the transmitted data or its use by Instagram.
Information collected automatically
We may also automatically gather server log file information, including your Internet Protocol address, browser type, referring/exit pages and operating system.
