To sign up to receive the newsletter, you have to provide us with the following required data:

You can alternatively unsubscribe from the newsletter through the form provided on our website.

We would like to inform you that we analyze your user behavior with regard to the transmission of our newsletter. The newsletter e-mails we send contain so-called web beacons and tracking pixels. The latter is a one-pixel image that is stored on our website. The data mentioned in this paragraph and the web beacons are connected with your e-mail address and an individual ID for analysis. The links contained in the newsletter also contain this ID. We use this data to generate a user profile. This allows us to register when you read the newsletter and which links in the newsletter you click on. This allows us to deduce your personal interests. We link this data with your user behavior on our website.

The processing of this data serves the purposes of tailoring the newsletter to your individual interests, optimizing our offerings and making them more interesting for you overall.

If you have granted us consent, the legal basis for the processing of this data is pursuant to Art. 6 Sec. 1 Point [a] of the GDPR. If processing is otherwise based on our justifiable interests, the legal basis is pursuant to Art. 6 Sec. 1 Point [f] of the GDPR. If you have granted us consent for the aforementioned processing of data, you can revoke it at any time.

You can object to this analysis of your user behavior at any time by clicking the separate link contained in every newsletter e-mail. You can also prevent the aforementioned analysis of your user behavior by deactivating the default display of images in your e-mail program. We would like to point out that in this case the newsletter will not be displayed in full and you may not be able to make use of all the newsletter’s features. If you manually activate the display of images, the aforementioned analysis of your user behavior will once again occur.

We save your e-mail address for as long as your comment is publicly visible. If you have granted us consent to store your data, you can revoke it at any time. You can object to the storage of the aforementioned data at any time. We additionally offer a service that notifies you via e-mail when other users leave a comment on your post. To be able to use this service, you have to activate the respective checkbox when you write your comment. For this service, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. When you publish a comment with the checkbox activated, you’ll receive an e-mail through which you have to confirm your e-mail address and your desire to receive our notification e-mails in the future.

GOOGLE ADWORDS

On our website, we use Google AdWords, a service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA [hereinafter referred to as “Google”]. Google AdWords allows us to use advertising materials [so-called Google AdWords] to draw attention to our attractive offerings on external websites. We can use this to find out how successful individual advertising measures are. These ads are delivered by Google through ad servers. We use so-called ad-server cookies, which assist us in our ability to measure certain parameters of success such as displayed ads and user clicks. If you are directed to our website through a Google ad, Google AdWords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies normally expire after 30 days. They do not serve to personally identify you. The following information is typically stored in these cookies as analysis values: unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per listing [frequency], last impression [relevant for post-view conversions], opt-out information [tag indicating that the user no longer wants to be appealed to].

These cookies allow Google to recognize your web browser. If a user visits certain pages of an AdWords customer’s website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer hasn’t expired, Google and the customer can detect that the user clicked the ad that directed him or her to that page. Every AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked through the AdWords customer’s websites in this way. We neither collect nor process any personal data through the aforementioned advertising measures. We only obtain statistical analyses from Google. With these analyses, we can detect which implemented advertising measures are particularly effective. We obtain no further data from the use of these advertising measures. In particular, we cannot identify users with the help of this information. The utilization of these marketing tools automatically establishes a direct connection between your browser and Google’s server. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data that Google collects through the use of Google AdWords. To the best of our knowledge, Google obtains the information that you have visited certain pages of our website or clicked one of our ads.

If you have a user account with Google and are signed in, Google can associate the visit with your user account. Even if you’re not registered with Google or haven’t logged in, there’s a possibility that Google detects and stores your IP address.

We use Google AdWords for marketing and optimization purposes, particularly to show you relevant, interesting ads, to improve campaign performance reports and to obtain a decent calculation of advertising costs. This is our justifiable interest in the processing of the aforementioned data. This is our justifiable interest in the third party’s processing of the aforementioned data. The legal basis is pursuant to Art. 6 Sec. 1 Point [f] of the GDPR.

You can prevent the installation of cookies by deleting existing cookies and deactivating the storage of cookies in your web browser’s preferences. We would like to point out that in this case it may not be possible to fully utilize all features of our website. You can also prevent the storage of cookies by setting your web browser to block cookies from the domain www.googleadservices.com [https://www.google.de/settings/ads]. We would like to point out that this setting will be reset if you delete your cookies. You can also deactivate interest-based ads at the following link: http://www.aboutads.info/choices. We would like to point out that this setting will also be reset if you delete your cookies. Google has also submitted to and certified the Privacy Shield agreement concluded by the European Union and the USA. This obliges Google to abide by the standards and regulations of European data protection laws.

Google uses cookies – small text files that are stored on your device and that allow for analysis of your use of our website. The information generated by these cookies about the use of our website is typically transferred to and stored on a Google server in the USA. If IP anonymization has been activated on the website, Google will shorten your IP address within European Union member states or other signatory states in the European Economic Area.

This processed data can be used to create pseudonymous user profiles. The IP address attained through the use of Google Analytics is not combined with any other Google data.

We only use Google Analytics with the aforementioned activated IP anonymization. This means that your IP address will only be processed by Google in shortened form. This precludes any ability to identify you personally.

The statistical analysis of user behavior allows us to be able to improve our offerings and make them more interesting for you as a user. This is our justifiable interest in Google’s processing of the aforementioned data.
