The revised Electronic Communications Act came into force on 1 July 2013 and has received a new provision on the conditions relating to the storage of information in communication equipment - the so-called "cookie section", cf. Electronic Communications Act § 2-7b.
The storage of information and the processing of this information is not permitted unless the user is informed and has consented to the information being processed, the purpose of this processing and who is processing the information.
We use these cookies
The cookies themselves have hashed data, so you don't have to worry about getting a username and password by reading cookies. A hash is the result of a particular mathematical formula used on any input (in this case your username and password, respectively). It is quite difficult to reverse a hash (borders on virtually impossible with today's computers). This means that it is very difficult to take a hash and "unhash" to find the original input data.
Google may also transmit this information to third parties if so required by US law or in cases where third parties process the information on behalf of Google. Google will not link your IP address to any other information Google has.
