§1 Type of compiled and saved data
- For any access to quantumphysicsmadesimple.com or a subpage of it (in the following called “this website”), data will be transferred to the server of our webhost. In order to establish a connection of highest security, by standard this connection is performed using the HTTPS protocol, which is in accordance with the current security standard. Despite this high security standard we cannot exclude hacker attacks to this connection. Our webhost saves the following data, which occurs on connection to any page of our website: Your ip address, the called page or data file, the calling site, date and time of the respective call, how long you stay on the page, the amount of transferred data, a code if the transfer was successful or not, as well as information about your browser and your operating system. This information is made available to us in a statistical way, for example, we can see a cake diagram over the countries, from which our website was called, or the number and relative occurence, from which ip address our website was called.
- Additionally, data is collected and saved with Google Analytics, as described in §4.
- We have additional functionality on our website, with which users can put in data, which is then saved on the server of our webhost.

§2 Use of the collected data
- Data collected as named under §1 1. and §1 2. is used by us for statistical purposes, e.g. to understand which subpages of our website are visited most, and which information around the quantum physics and quantum mechanics is of most interest to our website users. Data, that does not personally identifies users, but is of statistical nature, can be made available by us to third parties. For example, we could show to users of this website which are the most read articles.
- Comments to our articles, that are put in with the comment functionality, are public, that is they can (after clearance by us) be seen by any user of this website.
