Cookies and traffic reports
We use “session cookies” to measure access to texts in order to record the likelihood of copying. Session cookies are small pieces of information that a provider stores in the visitor’s computer memory.
A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. They help to determine the likelihood of individual texts being copied for the remuneration of legal claims by authors and publishers. We do not collect any personal data via cookies.
A use of our offers is also possible without cookies. Most browsers are set so that they automatically accept cookies.
However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser so that it notifies you as soon as cookies are sent.
Data protection declaration for the use of the scalable central measurement method
Our website and our mobile website use the “Scalable Central Measurement Method” (SZM) to determine the probability of texts being copied.
Anonymous measured values are collected in the process. For the recognition of computer systems, the access number measurement alternatively uses a session cookie or a signature that is created from various automatically transmitted information from your browser. IP addresses are only processed in anonymised form.
The procedure was developed taking data protection into account. The sole aim of the process is to determine the probability of individual texts being copied.
At no time individual users are identified. Your identity is always protected. You will not receive any advertising through the system.
