Information Collection and Use
Site Visitorship Data
We routinely gather data on website activity, such as how many people visit the site, which pages they visit, where they come from, how long they stay, etc. This Google Analytics data is collected on an aggregate, anonymous basis, which means no personal information is associated with this data. Any site visitorship information that we may gather is kept strictly confidential and is used only to improve the content and design of this site. We sometimes also share such information with our advertisers, but only as general data about traffic patterns. Since we do NOT collect personal traffic data, we can’t share it with any third party.
We sometimes collect personal information from site visitors, such as a visitor’s name, email address, etc., but this information is obtained only when site visitors voluntarily provide it. Such information is only collected through contact forms or subscription forms for our site and the German Way Expat Blog.
Any personal information we collect is NEVER sold, given away, or distributed in any manner. It is used only for internal use and only for the purposes that the site visitor intended.
