Cookies

Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files placed on your terminal by means of the browser. They do not cause any damage. 

We use cookies to make our offerings more user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. They allow us to recognise your browser when you visit us the next time. If you do not wish this to happen, you can configure your browser to inform you about the placement of cookies and to only allow them on a case-by-case basis. Disabling cookies may restrict the functionality of our website and impair the visual features of the website as well as your online experience.

Web analysis

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and that enable you to analyse the utilisation of the website. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website (including your IP address) is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your utilisation of the website, to compile reports on the website activities for the website operators, and to provide the website operator with other services associated with utilisation of the website and use of the Internet. Google may also pass this information on to third parties, if this is legally required or the third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will never connect your IP address with other data from Google. You can prevent the cookies from being installed by setting your browser software appropriately; however, we do draw your attention to the fact that, in this case, you may perhaps not be able to use all the functions of this website to the full extent. By using our website, you agree to the processing of the data collected about you by Google as previously described for the stated purpose. In view of the debate regarding the use of analytics tools with full IP addresses, please note that this website uses Google Analytics with the "_anonymizeIp()" function, which ensures that IP addresses are processed in truncated form only and prevents them from being traced to a specific user.

U.S.-based organisations are provided with the possibility of being added to a list (“Privacy Shield List”) administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce, if they commit themselves to comply with the binding requirements agreed (“Privacy Shield Principles”) by self-certification to the Department of Commerce. This provides the USA with an adequate level of data protection for the data transfer from the European Union to US companies.

Plug-ins of social networks

Our website contains plug-ins of social networks (Facebook). They are directly provided by the individual network providers. The corresponding logo (“Like” in white on a blue background) indicates the plug-in. By visiting the pages of our website which contain such a plug-in, in some cases a direct connection to the servers of the network providers is established. They transfer the content of the plug-ins to our website. Thereby the information that you have visited the website “Das Kinderwunsch Institut Schenk GmbH” is transmitted to the network provider. If you are logged in to one of the network providers while visiting the website of “Das Kinderwunsch Institut Schenk GmbH”, this provider can allocate your account. If you do not wish this to happen, you must log out from the corresponding network account before visiting the website of “Das Kinderwunsch Institut Schenk GmbH”.

Youtube

For the integration of videos, our website uses the provider YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Normally, your IP address is already sent to YouTube when you call a webpage with embedded videos and cookies are placed on your PC. In addition, we have embedded our YouTube videos with the advanced data protection mode (in this case, YouTube still contacts the Google DoubleClick service, however, according to the privacy statement issued by Google, personal data are not evaluated). In this way, YouTube no longer stores any information about the visitors of our website, unless they watch the video. If you click on the video, your IP address is transferred to YouTube and YouTube learns that you have watched the video. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, this information is also allocated to your user account (you can prevent this by logging out from YouTube before calling the video). We have no knowledge about and no influence on the collection and use of your data by YouTube resulting from this action. You can find further information in the data privacy statement issued by YouTube at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

If you believe that the processing of your data violates the data protection law or that your claims with regard to data protection have been infringed in any other way, you can file a complaint with the supervisory authority. In Austria, this is the data protection authority.
