Our internet offering makes provision for anonymous usage.

This website only captures data to the extent that it is technically required and in order to improve the offering. The data are not linked to persons; in other words, there is no way of telling which user retrieved which data. Under no circumstances will the data we collect be sold or made available to third parties for other reasons.

The following explanation shows how this protection is enabled and what kind of data are collected and for which purposes. Every time a user accesses or retrieves a file, data about this transaction are temporarily saved and processed. The following data set is saved for each access/download:

 Page viewed/name of the retrieved file

  • Amount of data transferred
  • Notification about whether the access/retrieval was successful
  • Browser type / version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL (the previous page you visited)
  • Search terms (when being referred from a search engine)
  • Date and time of the query

The IP address of the computer sending the query is not saved by us. This means that it is not possible to create user profiles linked to individual persons. The collected data are analysed anonymously, and for two reasons only: for statistical purposes and to improve the offering. The data are not used in any other way or made available to third parties.

Should you make use of services that require you to provide private or business information (e-mail addresses, names, addresses), you provide this information on a voluntary basis only. In such cases your personal information is stored and processed in accordance with Germany's Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG, Bundesdatenschutzgesetz).

The data collected in this context are used and stored to perform the requested service (participation in an event, delivery of publications, bursary requests) and in order to make you aware of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom's other events, publications and activities.

Should you not wish to receive such information simply notify us. We will then remove you from our mailing list (Section 28.4 BDSG).

Your personal information is stored and processed in accordance with German data protection regulations.

You may withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. To do so please contact presse@freiheit.org

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how visitors use the site.

However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, before this occurs, the visitor's IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union member states or the other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. On freiheit.org the Analytics code has been modified to ensure that an anonymised version of the IP address is transmitted. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and then shortened.

From time to time, Piwik.org may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website. Piwik.org also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Piwik.org does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below."
