Among other information, this includes website name, file, date, data volume, web browser, and web browser version, operating system, the domain name of your Internet provider, the referrer URL (the page from which you accessed our offer) and the IP address.

Without this information, it would not be technically possible to deliver and display the website content. In this respect, collecting data is absolutely necessary.

A valid (working) email address is required to receive the newsletter. The IP address which you use to register for the newsletter and the date on which you order the newsletter will be saved. This data serves as evidence of misuse if a third-party email address is used to register for the newsletter. In a further step to ensure that bogus email addresses are not added to our mailing list by third parties, we work with the “double-opt-in” process in accordance with the law. As part of this process, the signing up to the newsletter, the sending of the confirmation mail and the receipt of the registration confirmation are all recorded.

You have the right to revoke your consent to the storage of this data, your email address and its use for the sending of the newsletter at any time. We provide a cancellation link in each newsletter.

The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their further data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of "Mailigen" in the USA. "Mailigen" uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, "Mailigen" can use this data according to its own information to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the sending and presentation of the newsletter or for economic purposes, in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, "Mailigen" does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down or pass them on to third parties.

We trust in the reliability and IT and data security of "Mailigen". Mailigen" is certified under the US-EU data protection agreement “Privacy Shield” and thus commits itself to comply with EU data protection regulations. Furthermore, we have concluded a data processing agreement with "Mailigen".

Google AdWords

This website uses the online advertising program “Google AdWords” and its conversion tracking feature. Google AdWords will place a cookie on your computer, provided you came to our website via an Google ad. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits specific pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google are able to recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was forwarded to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers.

The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers will see the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and have been redirected to a site with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that allows users to be personally identified.

If you do not want to participate in the tracking process, you can simply disable the Google Conversion tracking cookie using your Internet browser in the user settings section. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. Find out more about Google’s data protection policy here https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

This website uses the standard analysis tool “Google Analytics” of Google Inc. (short: “Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies (text files that are stored on the computer). The generated information about the use of the website is transmitted to an American server of Google and stored for further processing. With your privacy in mind, we have extended Google Analytics with the option “anonymizeIP” so that all data is collected anonymously. The default IP address provided by your browser will not be merged with other data provided by Google. In exceptional cases, the full IP address will be transmitted and truncated on a Google (US) server.

The data collected by Google Analytics is evaluated to generate reports on user activity and to optimize your user experience. In order to contradict the storage of the cookies, please make the appropriate setting in your browser. Please note that you can only use other areas of this website to a limited extent.
