We want to foster the confidence of the internet user and for this reason we openly communicate the way we use personal data. Here you learn what information is collected and how it is used.
You can normally call up and use our website without having to give any personal details. In some cases, for example for our newsletter service, your name, address, and other personal details are required and we will duly inform you about this. If you decide to provide us with personal information, or other information through the contact form or by e-mail, we will use your information only for the intended purpose. This data is then deleted.
When you visit our site, we receive user data. If we use this data at all, it is to identify trends and compile statistics (like the number of users). This is done anonymously via Google Analytics, a service provided by Google, Inc. Agora Energiewende receives anonymous and aggregated data about the use of this site, how often various articles are called up, or the browser (such as Firefox, Internet Explorer) being used. We use this information to better match the site to your needs. Because all of the data is anonymous, it is out of the question that user profiles can be created with your personal data.
On certain pages cookies are used. But we are unable to make you aware of this when it is happening. Most browsers are programmed to accept cookies automatically. These cookies ensure that certain data are retained for the time when you use the website. You can deactivate the storing of cookies or adjust your browser to accept cookies only for the duration of the internet session.
Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or at https://www.google.de/intl/en_uk/policies/. Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “anonymizeIp” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking).

Note about Twitter
On our internet pages we have embedded so-called widgets from Twitter. Linking to this internet page will create a connection to Twitter servers located in the US. By calling up an internet page using this widget you will automatically pass information on to Twitter. This includes your IP address, the type of browser you use, your operating system and the internet page on which the Twitter widget is located. The widget will also place a cookie in your terminal’s browser. In connection with this cookie, Twitter can theoretically see which pages you have visited if a Twitter widget is also used on any of those pages. Twitter says it uses these data where applicable to make appropriate suggestions to people who have Twitter accounts. Twitter also says it begins to delete these data after a maximum of 10 days, with the deletion completed at the latest after another week. If you have a Twitter account, you can select a different data usage setting in your user account preferences. You can find more about this in Twitter’s data protection information: http://twitter.com/privacy.
If you have any further questions regarding the handling of your data, please contact the webmaster email@example.com.

The data collection and storage can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.
