Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at the Google Analytics Terms of Service or at the Google Analytics Privacy Overview. Please note that on this website, Google Analytics is supplemented by "gat._anonymizeIp();" to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses (IP masking).
JOININ uses the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google to protect your submissions via internet submission forms on this site. This plugin checks if you are a person in order to prevent certain website functions from being (ab)used by spam bots (particularly comments). This plugin query includes the sending of the IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the Google reCAPTCHA service. For this purpose your input will be communicated to and used by Google. However, your IP address is previously truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area and is, as such, anonymized. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address provided by reCaptcha from your browser shall not be merged with any other data from Google.

JOININ is active in social networks and platforms to communicate with clients, potential clients and other users to inform them about my services.
I inform you that in those social networks and platforms your personal data could be handled outside of the European Union. That could lead to risks like having more difficulties to enforce your personal rights. US-suppliers who are certified under the privacy-shield are bound to meet with EU privacy protection standards.
Furthermore your personal data is in general used for marketing purposes. From your habits of usage and your interests that can be seen from that a user profile can be established. That can be used to show you advertising within those social networks and outside of them that fit your assumed interests.
In general cookies are saved on your devise for that purpose in which your habits of usage and your interests are memorized.
Furthermore it is possible that data will be collected in your user profile independent from the used devices (especially when you are a member of that social platform and you are logged in).
Please contact the particular provider for detailed information about the used data processing and your options of contradiction (Opt-Out). You should do the same in case of an inquiry of information or enforcing your rights.
