Data Protection

Sonia Flöckemeier Coaching & Consulting takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the relevant statutory data protection regulations and this data protection policy.

You can normally use our website without providing personal data. Where we do collect personal data (e.g. name, postal address or e-mail address) on this website, this is – as far as possible – always done on a voluntary basis. Such data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

Please be advised that the transmission of data via the internet (e.g. in case of e-mail communication) may be subject to security gaps. Complete protection of your data from third-party access is not possible.

You are entitled to request information at any time and free of charge about your personal data stored, the origin and recipient of this data and the purpose of processing such data. You are also entitled to request rectification, blocking or erasure of such data. You can contact us at any time for these requests or for further questions regarding your personal data; please use the address stated in the legal notice below.

Cookies

Websites sometimes use so-called cookies. Cookies cause no harm to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and safe. Cookies are small text files that are left on your computer and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies used by us are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted when you leave our website. Other cookies will be stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser when you visit our website again.

You can adjust the settings of your browser so that you will be informed when cookies are set and only allow cookies on a case-by-case basis, exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general or activate the automatic deletion of cookies upon closing your browser.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis tool of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and that allow us to analyse the use of our website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will then use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about the website activities and to provide further services for the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the internet.

Protection of Your Personal Data

In order to protect your personal data, we have activated IP anonymisation for Google Analytics on this website. When IP anonymisation is activated, your IP address is shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to a server. Only in exceptions will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser when using Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Should we be in possession of any further personal data of our website users, we will not merge those with website tracking data or other non-personal data.

However, we must advise you that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this and other websites to their full extent.

Use of Advertising Functions by Google Analytics

This website uses not just the standard configuration of Google Analytics but also functions of Google Analytics that support interest-related advertising and advertising based on users’ surf behaviour. For this purpose, Google Analytics uses a third-party cookie from DoubleClick to analyse data about the surf behaviour of users of different websites. With the help of this data, statistical information can be provided about demographic data and website users’ areas of interest.

Please be advised that we are unable to view data of individual users and that we cannot trace back the statistical data we use to individual users.

Some visitors will be shown our advertisements on other websites after visiting our website. This form of ad placement is called Remarketing or Retargeting. If you would like to oppose the placement of these advertisements, we recommend you use one of the aforementioned options for the deactivation of website tracking by the website user. Google also offers you the option of controlling cookies for advertising preferences yourself.  http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/technologies/ads/.
