e. Cookies and other Internet technologies
Cookies are small text files sent to your browser by our web server during your session at our website and saved by the browser in your computer ready to be called up later.
On our site, we use Google Analytics, a website usage tracking service of Google Inc. (‘Google’) which involves saving of cookies in the user’s computer to enable tracking of website usage by the user.
The information on usage of this website obtained through cookies is usually transmitted to and stored in a Google server in the USA. We use this service on our website with an activated IP depersonalization function. It means that Google first compacts and thus depersonalizes your IP address on our website inside the EU member states or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address can be transmitted to the Google server in the USA and compacted there only in exceptional cases. Google will use this information on our orders to assess your usage of the website for the production of summary website activity reports and to provide us, as the website operator, further services concerning website and Internet usage.
The IP address of your browser transmitted within the framework of Google Analytics will not be pooled with other Google data.
Moreover, you can prevent transmission of the data generated by cookies concerning website usage (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available by clicking on the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
We incorporate videos from YouTube LLC (901 Cherry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA) and from Google Inc. (Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) in our website. The videos are incorporated under the option ‘Enhanced Data Protection Mode’ made available by YouTube. If you call up a page with an incorporated video, it connects with the YouTube servers and thus demonstrates the content through the website on your browser.
According to YouTube, the data is only transmitted to the YouTube server in the Enhanced Data Protection Mode – in particular which pages of our website you have visited if you watch a video. If you are logged in YouTube at the same time, this information will be allocated to your YouTube member account.
You can find further details regarding data handling by YouTube at: https://policies.google.com/privacy.
We also offer links to third-party websites in addition to our own information. The content and design of third-party websites are beyond our control. We do not ensure that the information on third-party websites is accurate or correct. The links also represent no endorsement, support or confirmation of the contents at the linked sites. Only respective third-party shall be held liable for illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and for any damages arising from the use or non-use of the information available in the hyperlinks linked to this site. The individual authors of the linked sites are responsible for the information, opinions and facts presented on their webpages. The same is true for comments made in guest books, discussion forms and e-mail lists. We are likewise not responsible for the technical security of both the links and target pages. We are therefore not liable for any damages that occur through use of either the information contained on these hyperlinks or the use of the hyperlinks themselves.
f. Other use of personal data
However, we reserve the right to disclose or transfer any personal data:
to protect ourselves and our affiliated companies against liability;
to protect the security and integrity of our website;
to respond to claims or other judicial requests;
to exercise our legitimate interests;
if the law requires us to do this.

In case you think processing your personal data is in controversy with any privacy law or you found a security issue or vulnerability, please contact the Brain Games via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can see if your browser uses this secure transmission in case the Internet address starts with ‘https’ and shows a little lock symbol which (typically) appears in the address field of your browser window. The transmission is secure when the lock is closed. Some browsers mark the entire address field or a part thereof green in such situations.
Unfortunately, please be aware that the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our website; any transmission is at your own risk.
