13 Newsletter

a) Type and scope of data processing

On our website you have the option of subscribing to a free regular e-mail newsletter. In order to be able to send you the newsletter on a regular basis, we need your e-mail address.

For the newsletter dispatch we use the so-called double opt-in procedure.

This means that we will only send you an e-mail newsletter once you have expressly confirmed that you consent to receiving the newsletter. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm that you wish to receive future newsletters from us by clicking on a corresponding link.

This serves to ensure that only you, as the owner of the specified email address, can subscribe to the newsletter. Your confirmation must take place promptly after receipt of the confirmation email, otherwise your newsletter registration will be automatically deleted from our database.

When you subscribe to the newsletter, we collect and store the data you enter in the input mask (e.g. last name, first name, e-mail address).

When you register for the newsletter, we also save the IP address entered by your Internet service provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration in order to be able to trace any possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later date. In the case of the confirmation e-mail sent for control purposes (double opt in
e-mail), we also save the date and time of the click on the confirmation link and the IP address entered by the Internet service provider (ISP).

b) Purpose and legal basis

The data collected by us when you register for the newsletter is used exclusively for the purpose of addressing you in an advertising manner by way of the newsletter.

In addition, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit f) GDPR due to legitimate interests of us to document the proof of the required consent.

Your email address will be stored for as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After unsubscribing from the newsletter, your email address will be deleted unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data.

 

14. Tracking and analysis tools

A detailed overview of the web analytics and social media tools we use can be found below:

Google Analytics

Some of our websites use Google Analytics to analyse and improve their use.

Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. 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. In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within 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 shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The legal basis for the processing of data with the help of Google Analytics is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

The legal basis for data processing is your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. In addition, you can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link:

http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

We use Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This shortens the IP addresses (so-called IP masking). A reference to specific persons can thus be excluded.

Information about Google: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001

More information on Google’s terms of use:
www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html

 

Facebook Custom Audience / Facebook Pixel

We use the visitor action pixel of the provider Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2 D02 X525, Ireland (“Facebook”) within our website. The remarketing tag or tracking pixel was implemented by Facebook. Facebook and we are jointly responsible for data processing.

The Facebook pixel makes it possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called “Facebook ads”). The tracking of a user can also take place across several websites. We use the Facebook pixel to display Facebook ads placed by us only to Facebook users who have shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interest in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”).

With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes (“Audience Insights”) by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion”).

The Facebook pixel is a javascript code that sends the following data to Facebook:

-HTTP header information: including IP address, web browser information, page location, document, website URL and web browser device (computer, smartphone, tablet, other) as well as day and time of use.

-Pixel specific data: Pixel ID and Facebook cookie data including your Facebook ID (these are used to link events to a specific Facebook advertising account and thus associate them with a Facebook user).

-Additional information about the visit and about standard and custom data events.

You can find more information here.

We also use the additional function “automatic extended matching”. Here, data such as first and last name, place of residence, email addresses, telephone numbers or Facebook IDs of the users are transmitted to Facebook in encrypted form for the creation of target groups (“Custom Audiences” or “Look Alike Audiences”). This also includes data from non-Facebook users and from users who are not logged into Facebook when they visit our website. This can also identify website visitors who have deactivated the storage of third-party cookies.

If no Facebook cookies are stored in your browser, you will not be assigned to one of the user groups known as “Custom Audience”. However, if the Facebook ID contained in the Facebook cookie has been assigned to a Facebook user, Facebook will assign this user to a so-called “Custom Audience” based on the rules defined by us.

According to the case law of the European Court of Justice, we are jointly responsible with Facebook for the operation of the tracking pixel with regard to compliance with data protection regulations. In this context, Facebook provides the associated IT infrastructure as well as the website of the social network and is basically the primary contact when it comes to the processing of your data on the pages of the social network (e.g. information or deletion). However, you can also assert your legal rights against us. In this case, we will forward your requests to the operator of the social network.

If data is transferred outside the European Union (EU) or the signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA), Facebook obliges the recipients (including the US company Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA) to comply with an appropriate data protection standard on the basis of so-called EU standard contractual clauses. In addition, a transfer to a third country can also take place due to the recognition of an adequate level of data protection by the European Commission.

We use the Facebook pixel to display the “Facebook ads” we place to Facebook users who have shown an interest in our online offering or who have certain characteristics that we transmit to Facebook (so-called “custom audiences”).

The legal basis for the use of Facebook Custom Audience is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO.

You can find more information about this here and in Facebook’s privacy policy.

 

LinkedIn Insight Tag / Pixel

The so-called Insight Tag of the social network LinkedIn is used on our website. This is offered by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland (hereinafter “LinkedIn”).

The LinkedIn Insight tag is a small JavaScript code snippet that we have added to our website. This enables the collection of data about visits to our website, including URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser properties, timestamps and page views.

LinkedIn does not share any personal data with us, but only provides aggregate reports on website audience and ad performance. It also provides retargeting for website visitors so that we can use this data to display targeted advertising outside of our website without identifying the member. LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in their account settings.

Details on data processing as well as your rights and setting options can be found in LinkedIn’s data protection information at:

https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

 

The use of the LinkedIn Insight tag is for the purpose of providing detailed campaign reports and information about visitors to our website and therefore serves our advertising and marketing interests.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO, i.e. your consent.

The data is encrypted, anonymised within seven days and the anonymised data is deleted within 90 days.

However, as a user you can also decide yourself at any time about the execution of the Java Script code required for the tool via your browser settings. By changing the settings in your internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the execution of Java Script and thus also prevent its storage. In this case, however, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the website to their full extent.

 

Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through one interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personal data. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Google Fonts

We use Google Fonts on some of our websites. This allows us to integrate certain fonts into our website. These fonts are provided by Google via servers in the USA. When calling up our website, the visitor’s web browser establishes a direct connection to these servers. Among other things, the visitor’s IP address is transmitted to Google and stored there.

Further information about Google: Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043, USA

Further information on data protection at Google:

Google Fonts local

We use external fonts from Google Fonts on this website. Google Fonts is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Tel: +353 1 543 1000, Fax: +353 1 686 5660, Email: support-deutschland@google.com (“Google”).

We integrate Google Fonts locally, i.e. on our own server. This avoids a connection to Google servers in the USA and a transfer and storage of personal data to or on Google servers in the USA.

The purpose of using Google Fonts is the uniform presentation of fonts. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO. You have the right to object to the creation of user profiles.

 

Twitter

On our Twitter channel you will receive our offers and services.

When you visit our channel, Twitter International Company, One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street, Dublin 2, D02 AX07, Ireland (“Twitter”), as operator, stores and processes personal data to the extent described in the privacy policy.Twitter’s privacy policy can be found here: https://twitter.com/de/privacy

For the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimisation of our pages, we use the statistics service Twitter Analytics. This service records your activity on our site and makes it available to us in anonymised statistics. This provides us with information on, among other things, impressions (how often a certain ad was viewed by Twitter users and by which target groups), conversions (e.g. website visits, registration) and other interactions (e.g. retweets, hashtag clicks). It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual users or access to individual user profiles.

For more information on Twitter Analytics, please visit:

Cloudflare

We use the services of the company “Cloudflare” (Cloudflare, Inc., 101 Townsend St, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA) to increase the availability and security of our website.

Cloudflare provides a so-called Content Delivery Network (CDN). This means that website operators can make certain page content available not only on their own servers, but also on servers of CDN providers. If the CDN servers are located closer to the user than the website operator’s servers, the use of a CDN regularly results in faster loading times for the user. When users call up the page of such a website operator, they therefore establish a connection not only to the website operator, but also to the CDN operator.

In addition, Cloudflare provides website operators with security functions that can be used, in particular, to fend off automated attacks on the website. Due to the use of these functions, the availability of our website and the offers contained therein can be ensured.

Cloudflare sets cookies for the purposes outlined above and may process the following categories of data in particular as a result:

IP address,

end device of the user,

Data on traffic between the user and the website operator, e.g. pages accessed, date and time of access.

You can completely prevent Cloudflare from processing your personal data by deactivating the execution of script code in your browser settings or by integrating a so-called script blocker into your browser.

Cloudflare contractually undertakes, on the basis of so-called EU standard data protection clauses, when transferring personal data out of the European Economic Area, to ensure that the recipients observe a data protection standard that is substantially equivalent to the European standard. Please note, however, that we cannot ensure that Cloudflare will be able to comply with these contractual obligations in every case.

The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest in the continuous and secure operation of our website and the defence against hacker attacks (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DS-GVO).

For more information, please see Cloudflare’s privacy policy at: https://www.cloudflare.com/de-de/privacypolicy/
