The content and works created by the site operator on this site are subject to copyright law. The duplication, processing and any kind of usage outside the limits of copyright require the written consent of the respective author or creator.
Downloads and copies of this site are only permitted for private, non-commercial use.
If the contents on this page were not created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties shall be respected. In particular, third-party content shall be identified as such. Nevertheless, we kindly ask that you inform us should you become aware of a copyright infringement. We will remove such content immediately upon becoming aware of infringements to rights.
For direct or indirect references to external websites ('hyperlinks'), which are beyond the sphere of responsibility of the site owner, a liability obligation would come into force only if the site owner is aware of the contents, and it would be technically possible and feasible therefor to prevent the use in the case of illegitimate content.
The site owner hereby expressly states that no illegal content was apparent on the linked pages at the time of setting the link. The site owner has no influence on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked/connected sites. It therefore hereby expressly dissociates itself from all content of all linked pages that were changed after the link setting. This statement applies to all links and references placed within its own Internet offer. It is the website provider who is solely liable for illegal, inaccurate or incomplete contents—and, in particular, for damages arising from the use or non-use of such information featured in this way—and not the party that merely refers to the respective posting via the links.
You may receive information free of charge at any time about the personal data we have stored regarding your person as well as about the origin, the recipient and the purpose of data collection and data processing. In addition, you have the right to request the rectification, blocking or erasure of your data. The exception in this case is data which is kept because of statutory regulations or which is needed for proper business transactions. Data is kept in a lock file for control purposes so that a data block may be implemented at any time. If data is not covered by a statutory archiving obligation, we will delete your data at your request. We will block your data if the archiving obligation takes effect. For all questions and concerns regarding rectification, blocking or erasure of personal data, please contact the address indicated in the Legal Notice.

The following as well as other data, which your Internet browser transmits to us or to our webspace provider, respectively, is recorded for technical reasons (so-called server log files). This includes the browser type/browser version, operating system used, website from which you visit us (referrer URL), websites that you visit, date and time of your access, your Internet protocol (IP) address. This anonymous data cannot be assigned to specific persons. No merger of this data is carried out with other data sources. It is only evaluated for statistical purposes in order to optimise our web presence and our offers. We reserve the right to review this data retrospectively if we become aware of concrete indications of unlawful use.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ('Google'). Google Analytics uses so-called ' cookies' – text files stored on your computer which allow for an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If the IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will nevertheless be truncated by Google beforehand within the Member States of the European Union or in other Contracting States to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website in order to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about website activity, and to provide other services associated with website usage and Internet usage to the website operator.
The IP address transmitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
You can prevent the storage of cookies through an appropriate setting in your browser software. However, we would like to point out that you may not be able to fully use all the functionalities of this website in such a case. Furthermore, you can prohibit the collection of the data generated by the cookie and based on your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension '_anonymizeIp()'. As a result, IP addresses are processed in a truncated manner and any direct references to persons can thus be excluded. If there is any personal reference in the data collected about you, this will be excluded straightaway and the personal data deleted immediately along with it.
We use Google Analytics in order to analyse the use of our website and to improve it on a regular basis. We can improve our offers through the acquired statistics and make them more attractive for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 let. f of the GDPR.

In principle, we do not transmit your data to third parties without your consent.
A technical transfer may, however, be carried out if and to the extent that this is necessary for the operation of biotoon.com or is due to other reasons for the establishment, execution or processing of your user relationship with us. This can be the case if, for instance, biotoon.com is hosted from an external service provider – that is, an external service provider operates the servers for biotoon.com.
In addition, we may be legally required to disclose data to a competent authority in individual cases by court order, if and to the extent that this is necessary for law enforcement purposes, for protection against threats to public safety by police authorities of the regional states, to fulfil the statutory tasks of the constitutional protection authorities of the federation and the regional states, of the federal intelligence service or the military counter-intelligence service, or the federal criminal police office within the context of its task in the defence against the dangers of international terrorism, or for the enforcement of intellectual property rights.
biotoon.com is hosted on servers that are operated in the EEA. We use technical and organisational measures to protect your data (for instance) from manipulation, loss and unauthorised access by third parties. These measures include, amongst others, the use of firewalls and antivirus programs as well as manual security measures. We continuously review and improve our security measures in accordance with technological progress. However, with regard to data transmission via the Internet, we cannot guarantee one hundred percent security of the data transmitted to our website.
The c't project 'Shariff' is used on biotoon.com. 'Shariff' replaces the usual social network share buttons and thereby protects surfing behaviour. 'Shariff' integrates these social network share buttons on our website simply as graphics which contain a link to the corresponding social network. By clicking on the appropriate graphics, you will be redirected to the service of the respective network. The Shariff button only establishes direct contact between the social network and our visitors only when the visitor actively clicks on the share button. Only then will your data be transmitted to the respective social network. On the other hand, if the Shariff button is not clicked, there is no exchange between you and the social networks. More information about the c't project 'Shariff' can be found at http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html
We integrate the following social networks with 'Shariff' on our website:
