Personal data refers to data about the objective or personal aﬀairs of a speciﬁed or speciﬁable natural person. This includes particularly information that allow for conclusions regarding your identity, for example your name, your telephone number, your address or e-mail address. Statistical data that we collect, for example, when you visit our website and which cannot be directly linked to your person, do not come under the concept of the personal date.
In the case of the mere informative use of the website, we do not collect any personal data, except for the data transmitted by your browser to enable you to visit the website. These are:
The IP addresses of the users are deleted or anonymised after the end of the usage. In the case of anonymization, the IP addresses are changed in such a way that the individual details about personal or objective aﬀairs can no longer, or only with a disproportionate amount of time, costs and labor power, be assigned to a speciﬁed or speciﬁable natural person. The data in the so-called log ﬁles are evaluated anonymously by us in order to further improve the W Ventures website and to make it more user-friendly, as well as to ﬁnd and correct errors more quickly. In addition, they are used to control the server capacities, in order to be able to provide corresponding data volumes in case of need.
The transfer of the data collected by W Ventures to third parties only takes place if this is necessary for the purpose of contract processing or settlement, or if you have previously given your consent. The data thus provided may only be used by our service providers to fulﬁl their task. These were carefully selected by us and commissioned in writing. They are bound by our instructions and regularly checked by us. Any other use of the information is not permitted and is likewise not carried out by any of our service providers.
Cookies are small ﬁles that are stored on your data carrier and store certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They aim at making the Internet oﬀer more user-friendly and eﬀective.
Basically, two diﬀerent types of cookies exist, so-called session cookies, which are deleted, as soon as you close your browser (= end of the session) and temporary / permanent cookies, which are stored for an extended period or unlimited on your data carrier. This storage helps us to design our website and makes it easier for you to use it, by storing speciﬁc entries so that you do not have to repeat them all the time.
You may delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time and conﬁgure your browser settings according to your needs (for example, accepting third party cookies or rejecting all cookies). As a rule, you will be shown how to reject new cookies and delete already received ones in the menu bar of your web browser. However, we would point out that you may not be able to use all the features of our website.
Most of the cookies we use are session cookies and are automatically deleted from your hard drive after the end of the browser session. In addition, we use permanent cookies that remain on your hard drive. During a subsequent visit the browser automatically recognizes that you were already with us and also, which inputs and settings you prefer. These cookies will be stored on your hard drive and will be deleted by itself after the speciﬁed time.
The cookies used by us are not assigned to any speciﬁc person and therefore not assigned to you. When the cookie is activated, an identiﬁcation number is assigned to it. An assignment of your personal data to this identiﬁcation number is not possible at any time. It does not store your name or similar data that would allow the allocation of a cookie to you.
Google will use the information obtained by the cookies to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activity for the website operators and to provide further services connected with the use of the website and the Internet. Google may also transfer this information to third parties, provided this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
You can conﬁgure your browser to discard cookies, or you can track the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of this website (including your IP address) to Google, as well as the processing of that data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in.
As an alternative to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, you can set an opt-out cookie to prevent Google Analytics from being tracked within this site in the future.

To manage our websites and to incorporate cookie-based technologies, we use the service Tag manager, which is oﬀered by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). To do this, each time you access one of our websites, your IP address is transferred to a Google server, which could be located in the USA. The IP address is not stored by Google as part of the Tag manager service and is only used to integrate the technologies that are managed by the Tag manager. The Tag manager itself does not set cookies.
