Right of Information

You have the right to obtain the information about your person any time. If you have further questions regarding the privacy policy or need more information on a certain point, you can contact our data protection officer at datenschutzATstopcallme.net.de (replace AT with a @).

Right of removal of comments on a telephone number

On stopcallme.net, every user can leave comments regarding any telephone number. These comments represent the opinion of the comment’s author and not the opinion of stopcallme.net on that phone number. Which is why we created an option to delete comments. Under every comment, there is a button called “Report the comment as spam”. With a simple click on this button, comments are directly deleted.

Use of the Facebook-Plugin

On these websites, the plugins of the social network facebook.com are utilized, which are run by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). If you open a website of our web presence with such a plugin, a connection to the Facebook servers is established and the plugin is shown through a message to your browser. Hereby, the Facebook server is signaled which websites of ours you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook at that time, Facebook will assign this information to your Facebook user account. By using the plugin functions (e.g. click on the “like”-buttons, writing of comments), this information is also attributed to your Facebook user account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plugins. Further information on the gathering and usage of data by Facebook and your respective rights and possibilities to protect your privacy can be found in the privacy section on Facebook.

Use of the Google “+1″ Button

On these websites, the “+1″ button of the social network Google Plus by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043 USA, (hereafter referred to as „Google“) is used. If you open a website of ours with the “+1″ button, a connection with the Google servers is established and concurrently, the button is displayed on the webpage by accessing your browser. Thereby, the Google servers are informed, which of our webpages you have visited. The “+1″ button is not used to gather your visits on the internet. Google does not log your browser history or analyse your visit on a website with a “+1″ button in any other way. Google stores about two weeks worth of data about your visit for system maintenance and troubleshooting purposes. However, this information is not structured in terms of individual profiles, user names or URL’s and are not forwarded to us. If you are logged into Google Plus and use the “+1″ button, Google gathers information on your Google profile, your recommended URL, your IP address and other browser-related information. If you withdraw your +1, this data is deleted. If you made your Google Plus profile public in your settings, your +1’s together with your profile name and your photo can be displayed in Google services like search results or your Google profile, or in other places on websites or adverts on the internet. If you do not want Google to use and process your data in the aforementioned way, you need to log out of Google Plus before visiting our website.
