You can opt-out of these cookies by visiting the website or – for some – by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out website.
There is also an Open Source Heatmap service (where clicks do happen on my site). As far as WE know no cookies are set and no personal data is tracked, except for browser used (no IP etc.). The data is collected on a server WE control (location is USA) and not shared with anybody. All this service does is create maps showing which area of a page was clicked on most.
How can you further protect your privacy?
You should be aware that cookies are used on websites to ie. help third party ad servers and vendors to optimize the ads.
Since this site serves also Google ads, you should know that Google’s use of the DART cookie enables it and its partners to serve ads to your users based on their visit to your sites and/or other sites on the Internet.
You can opt-out of the use of this DART cookie by visiting Google’s privacy center.
You can also visit the Opt-out page of the Network Advertising Initiative, for further privacy measures.

Use of Facebook Social Plugins
Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white letter f on blue background or a thumb up icon) or the notice “Facebook Social Plugin”. For a full list of all social Plugins please seehttp://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our website. Thus we have no influence on the data gathered by the plugin and inform you according to our state of knowledge:
The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is possibility that the plugins transmits your IP-address to Facebook.
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering our website. Further you can block Facebook social Plugins by using add-ons for your browser, like the “Facebook Blocker“.
