4. Data collection on our website

Cookies

The internet pages partly use so-called cookies. These are small text files that your browser stores on your computer. They do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

This website only uses a technically necessary cookie to store your preferred language (German or English). It will be deleted at the latest one year after your last visit to our website. Recipients of this data may be technical service providers who are responsible for the operation and maintenance of the website. We have concluded corresponding order processing contracts with these service providers.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions requested by you (such as language selection) are stored persuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and user-friendly provision of its services.

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in “server log files”. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. f  GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the secure and technically error-free operation of the website.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.

Data analysis by Rapidmail

For analysis purposes, emails sent with Rapidmail contain a tracking pixel which connects to Rapidmail servers when the email is opened. This allows us to determine if a newsletter message has been opened.

It also helps us determine which links have been clicked on. All links in the email are tracking links that allow us to count your clicks.
