This allows members to contact each other within the Community. Data are only visible if you give your official consent. You can specify whether or to what extent your personal data is provided access to. The official user name that was determined when registered is always visible in an online user list and under “new registration” (“Neuanmeldung”) outside the community. If you wish not to share your user name you can only prevent disclosure by deleting your personal profile. Access to the AUBI-plus-Community is no longer given in that case.

    3. We have the right to pass on data to third parties
      1. When you have given your explicit consent,
      2. When required by an enforceable and legally valid official or court injunction for the disclosure of data to third parties or when required by law or in conjunction with a government inquiry.
      3. When necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activities, such as the misuse of the web site or the offered services and the infringement of the terms of use, in a legally admissible manner.

  8. Google Analytics
    1. This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics places cookies on your computer - text files which are able to collect utilisation data (information about users’ access to this website). These data also include your IP address. They are drawn from cookies and sent to a Google server located in the USA. They are stored and analysed in order to create reports about website activities as information for website operators and to provide further services corresponding to your use of the website and the internet. If and when necessary Google will transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if third parties use this data under contract to Google. Google will under no account relate your IP address with other Google data. If you prefer not to accept cookies, you can prevent cookies installations by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser software. Please be aware that you may not be able to make full use of all features and services this website offers. By using this website you agree with your data being processed in the manner and for the purpose mentioned above. You can at any time disagree with future information gathering and data storing by using a browser-add-on that deactivates Google Analytics. According to the controversial issue about analysis tools using complete IP addresses, we would like to draw your attention to the following fact: This website applies Google Analytics with the additional option “_anonymizelp()”. That makes it possible to process abridged (encoded) versions of IP addresses and to evade personal recognition and association.
    2. This website makes use of the reports of Google Analytics to demographic features in which data of interest-related advertising of Google and user information of third parties (e.g. age, gender and interests) are used. These date cannot be attributed to particular persons and can be deactivated through the ad placement at any time.
  9. Facebook plug-ins
    1. This website contains plug-in from the social network facebook.com which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94394, USA. If you access a website that contains these social plug-ins, a direct link with the Facbook server will be established. The server will automatically be provided with utilisation data (information about what website you have accessed). If you are a registered member in the Facebook Community and logged in to Facebook via your personal account, Facebook can link this information with your account. When using plug-in functions (e.g. klicking the “Like”-button or posting a comment) these data as well are passed on. If you wish to prevent the disclosure of data, please log out of your Facebook account before using plug-ins. For further information on information gathering and data storing by Facebook and on your rights regarding the protection of privacy, please see the data use policy on facebook.com.
