Google+

Our website uses features of Google+. These features are provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

By using the Google+ button, you can publish information worldwide. The Google+ button provides you and other users with personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you +1'd certain content and information about the page you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your + 1's may be displayed along with your profile name and photo in other Google services, such as in search results, your Google profile or elsewhere on websites and ads on the internet.

Google records information about your +1 activity to improve Google's services for you and others. To use the Google+ button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used for all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace a different name you used when sharing content through your Google account. The identity of your Google profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you.

In addition to the uses outlined above, the information you provide is used in accordance with Google's applicable privacy policies. Google may publish summarized statistics about users' +1 activity or share this with users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or affiliate websites.

Our website uses features of the social network LinkedIn. These are provided by the LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Each time you visit one of our pages that contains LinkedIn features, a connection to LinkedIn’s servers is established. LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our website with your IP address.

Please note that we as the provider of the website have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by LinkedIn.

For more information, please refer to LinkedIn's privacy policy: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

Comment Feature

When you use the comment feature on the blog of our website, details of when the comment was written, your email address and, if you do not post anonymously, your chosen username are saved in addition to your comment.

Our comment feature stores the IP addresses of the users who write comments. Since we do not check comments prior to publication on our blog, we need this information in order to take action against the author in case of violations such as insults or propaganda.

As a user of the blog, you can subscribe to comments after registering. You will receive a confirmation email to verify that you are the owner of the entered email address. You can unsubscribe from this feature at any time via a link in the emails.

SSL Encryption

This website uses SSL encryption for security purposes and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the address bar of your browser reading "https://" rather than "http://" and showing the closed padlock symbol.

If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Use of reCAPTCHA

To protect input forms on our website, we use the reCAPTCHA service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This service allows us to distinguish whether the corresponding input is of human origin or constitutes automated misuse by a machine.

To our knowledge, the referrer URL, the IP address, the behavior of the website visitors, information about the operating system, browser and duration, cookies, presentation instructions and scripts, the input behavior of the user as well as mouse movements in the area of the reCAPTCHA checkbox are transmitted to Google.

Among other things, Google uses this information to digitize books and other printed materials as well as to optimize services such as Google Street View and Google Maps (for example, house number and street name recognition).

The IP address submitted through reCAPTCHA will not be merged with other data stored by Google unless you are logged in to your Google account at the time you use the reCAPTCHA plugin. If you do not want Google to transmit and store information about you and your behavior on our website, you must log out of Google before you visit our website and use the reCAPTCHA plugin.

The information obtained through the reCAPTCHA service is used in accordance with Google's terms of service: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy

Use of Services and Content from Third Parties

Occasionally, we may include content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites on our website. This requires the providers of this content to know a user’s IP address in order to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content.

We endeavor to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. However, we have no control over whether third parties store the IP address for statistical or other purposes. To the extent that this becomes known to us, we will inform users about it.

Revocation, Changes, Corrections and Updates

You have the right to receive free information about the data Svensson & Friends has stored about you at any time. Should your data be incorrectly or unjustly stored by us, we will gladly correct, block or delete it as far as this does not conflict with any legal obligation to keep records.

We ask you to please inform us of any changes to your data without delay. For information requests, questions, complaints or suggestions, please write to the following address: privacy@svenssonfriends.com. Or give us a call: +49-8171-63990-97.

We're always there for you!
