A Promise to Our Visitors
Information Collection and Use
Site Visitorship Data
We routinely gather data on website activity, such as how many people visit the site, which pages they visit, where they come from, how long they stay, etc. This data is collected on an aggregate, anonymous basis, which means no personal information is associated with this data. Any site visitorship information that we may gather is kept strictly confidential and is used only to improve the content and design of this site. We sometimes also share such information with our advertisers, but it is only general data about traffic patterns.
We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our website. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, see Google.com’s Privacy Center page.
We sometimes collect personal information from site visitors, such as a visitor’s name, email address, etc., but this information is collected only when site visitors voluntarily provide it. Such information is only collected through contact forms or subscription forms for the German Way Expat Forum. (The Forum also offers a website-only, no-email option.)
Any personal information we collect is NEVER sold, given away, or distributed in any manner. It is used only for internal use and only for the purposes that the site visitor intended. You will never receive email from us unless you subscribed to our Expat Forum or contacted us yourself.
Notice: We are not responsible for the content of external websites we link to.
