Data protection and our privacy policy

AMBERPRESS attaches great importance to protecting your personal data. We always inform you about personal data that we collect during your visit to our websites, how it is used, and how you can influence the process.

The use of our website is usually possible without providing personal information. In the event that personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail address) are collected via our website, this occurs on a voluntary basis as far as possible. This data is not passed on to third parties without your express consent. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that online data transfer (e.g. during e-mail communication) may involve security risks. It is impossible to protect data fully against unauthorised access by third parties. The use of contact data published within the context of imprint regulations by third parties to send advertising material and information which has not been explicitly requested is hereby expressly prohibited. The site operators explicitly reserve the right to take legal action against any party who sends unsolicited advertising information, including, but not limited to spam mails.

1. What data is collected and how is it used?
For the provision of our services
Technical characteristics: When you visit our websites, our web servers temporarily record the domain name or IPaddress of your computer, the file requested (file name and URL) by the client, the http response code, and the website from which you are visiting us.
The recorded data is used solely for data security purposes, particularly to protect against attempted attacks on our server. We do not use it to create individual user profiles nor do we share this information with third parties. It is erased after seven days at the latest.
Cookies: We use cookies for certain services. These are small text files that are stored on your computer. They enable the system to tell if you repeatedly visit websites from the same computer.
Session cookies are cookies that are only saved on your computer for the duration of a single Internet session, in the context of comments to articles and blog posts. They do not contain any personal data.
For some offerings we use persistent cookies that support the authentication of blog comments and are stored on your computer for future sessions. In addition, a persistent cookie is saved when you click the confirmation link to release your own comment. These cookies remain valid until you delete them or until the deletion period configured in your client is reached.
You can set your browser to prevent these cookies being stored or to delete the cookies at the end of your Internet session. However, please remember that in this case you may not have access to the full range of functions offered by our websites.
Other personal details such as your name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address will not be collected unless you provide this information voluntarily, for example, in web forms.

2. Where is my data processed?
We are a small publishing house in Berlin and your data is processed in Germany. Your data may also be processed elsewhere within or outside of Germany, in line with legal regulations.

3. How secure is my data?
We have taken extensive technical and operational precautions in accordance with German law to protect your data against unauthorized access and misuse.

4. Will my data be passed on to third parties?
We do not pass on your data to third parties for any other purpose, unless you have given express permission.

5. Will my usage habits be evaluated, e.g. for advertising purposes?
We are not evaluating your usage habits neither for advertising and market research nor for designing websites so this information cannot be traced back to you directly and any other information about your person.

6. Data control with the social media plug-ins used
Some of our websites include buttons for social media networks (Facebook Like button, Google +1, Twitter button, Instagram) that you can use to recommend the services of AMBERPRESS to your friends and family.
To ensure that you have full data control, grayed-out images of the respective functions are displayed instead of the actual social plug-ins when you load the website. The exchange of data is not activated until you click the checkmark next to the images, which loads the respective social media plug-ins. An action (such as liking the page) is not activated until you click a second time.
When the social media plug-in is activated, the following data can be forwarded to the social media provider: IPaddress, browser information, operating system, screen resolution, installed browser plugins (such as Adobe Flash Player), origin of the visitor if you followed a link (referrer), URL of the current web page.
The next time you visit the website, the social media plug-ins are again provided in the default disabled mode, thus ensuring that no data is transferred during a repeat visit to the website.
For more information about social media plug-ins, visit http://heise.de/-1333879 (German Version).

7. Can I obtain information about my stored data?
You may request, free of charge, information on the scope, origin, and recipients of the stored data as well as the purpose of storage.

8. Can I have data corrected?
You may request that incorrect data be corrected at any time.

9. Who should I contact if I have any queries regarding data privacy at AMBERPRESS?
If you have any queries, please contact:

Data privacy statement for the use of Facebook plugins (“like” button)

Our site includes plugins from the social network Facebook, 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Facebook plugins are indicated by the Facebook logo or the “like” button on our site. Click here for an overview of Facebook plugins: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When you visit our site, the plugin creates a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook server. Facebook is thus made aware that you have visited our site using your IP address. If you click on the Facebook “like” button while logged into your Facebook account, you can link our site’s contents to your Facebook profile. This allows Facebook to link the visit to our site with your user account. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that we, as the site’s provider, are not made aware of the contents of the transferred data, nor of its use by Facebook. For further information, please consult Facebook’s data privacy statement at http://facebook.com/policy.php

If you do not wish Facebook to link your visit to our site to your Facebook account, please log out of your Facebook account prior to visiting our site.

Data privacy statement for the use of Google +1

Collection and circulation of information:

The Google +1 button allows you to publish information internationally. The Google +1 button provides you and other users with personalised contents from Google and our partners. Google saves both the information provided by you as contents +1 and information about the website you viewed while clicking on the +1 button. Your +1 contents can be inserted as references with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or your Google profile, or in other locations on websites and internet advertisements. Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for yourself and other users. To use the Google +1 button, you require an internationally visible, public Google profile which must, at the very least, contain the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in conjunction with all Google services. In some cases, this name may replace another name used by you when sharing contents via your Google account. Your Google profile identity may be displayed to users who have your e-mail address or who are in possession of other information which identifies you.
Use of the collected information: In addition to the designated uses explained above, the information provided by you is used in accordance with current valid Google data protection regulations. Google may publish consolidated statistics regarding users’ +1 activities or pass these on to users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or linked websites.

Data privacy statement for the use of Twitter

Our website includes functions operated by the Twitter service. These functions are provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. Websites visited by you are connected with your Twitter account during the use of Twitter and the “re-tweet” function, and this information is provided to other users. Data is also transferred to Twitter in the process. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that we, as the site’s provider, are not made aware of the contents of the transferred data, nor of its use by Twitter. For further information, please consult Twitter’s data privacy policy at http://twitter.com/privacy.

You can alter your Twitter data privacy settings in the account settings section at http://twitter.com/account/settings.
