It cannot be ruled out that data transmitted by you without encryption can be viewed by third parties during transmission. It is pointed out that with regard to data transmission via the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) no conclusive secure transmission can be guaranteed. Sensitive data should therefore either not be transmitted at all or only via a secure connection (SSL) over the Internet.

Newsletter with success measurement

Insofar as you order our electronic newsletter, your personal data will be processed for the purpose of regularly sending our newsletter on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (1) lit. a) GDPR. The logging of the registration process is based on our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (1) lit. f) GDPR and serves as proof of consent to receive the newsletter. 

The registration for our newsletter takes place in a so-called double opt-in process. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you are asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with foreign e-mail addresses. The registrations for the newsletter are logged in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the registration and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, the changes to your data stored with the shipping service provider are logged. 

In case of non-consent, it is unfortunately not possible for us to provide you with our newsletter. An automated decision-making process is not carried out. 

The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon", i.e. a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server of the dispatch service provider when the newsletter is opened. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval are initially collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behavior based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined with the help of the IP address) or the access times in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (1) lit. f) GDPR. The statistical surveys also include the determination of whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. This information is anonymized, a conclusion to your e-mail address is not possible. The evaluations serve us to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users. 

A transfer of your personal data to external third parties takes place to:

Matomo

When the cookie settings are displayed and saved, two independent tracking pixels are transmitted to the domain matomo.synaigy.io (which belongs to TIMETOACT GROUP GmbH). The collection and processing is based on our interest in ensuring that the functions are secure and error-free, especially in conjunction with campaigns, landing pages and the first visit to our offers by you as a user. Only the loss rate within the web analysis is determined and for this purpose the current URL and the approval/rejection of the different consent categories are recorded. No personal data is collected and no conclusions can be drawn about individuals or their behavioral flow.

Web conferencing tools

We want to make communication with prospects, customers and users easier and adapted to the current technical and practical reality. Therefore, we use conferencing tools for video and audio conferencing. You can find out which individual web conferencing tools we use in the following section. 

As a rule, data is first collected that represents metadata and technical data of the users and the conferences. Metadata includes, for example, the duration of the conference, the period of participation, the number of participants or the name and/or description of the meeting. Technical data are such as the IP addresses and device as well as hardware information of the participants, such as MAC addresses, device and operating systems or information about peripheral devices and connection quality. In the case of optional participation via a cell phone, further data may be stored in addition to the telephone number. In addition, the data collected includes all data that you provide for the use of the service (in some cases also optionally). The usual data here are the name, telephone number, e-mail address and other log and profile data. 

During a meeting in a web conferencing tool, video and audio data recorded by your microphone/camera, as well as any content that can be uploaded (messages in chats, surveys or similar, as well as other files such as presentation documents) can be processed, logged or displayed. When optionally using the recording function of web conferences, this data can be stored permanently, also on servers of service providers.  

However, we would like to point out that we generally have no influence on what data is collected. Accordingly, failure to provide the aforementioned data may mean that it is not possible for you to participate in the web conference. No automated decision-making will be carried out. Details on the processing of data by the services concerned can be found in the data protection notices of the respective services, which are designated in the following section. 

We use the web conferencing tools to communicate with you in a simple, effective and direct way. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (1) lit. f) GDPR. In the case of an existing contractual relationship, the use of such a service serves the purpose of providing a service, for which the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 (1) (1) lit. b) GDPR. The same legal basis arises for the registration as well as the participation in an online webinar offered by us. If your consent has been obtained, the legal basis for processing the data is Art. 6 (1) (1) lit. a) GDPR and Section 25 (1) TTDSG, provided that the consent within the meaning of the TTDSG relates to the setting of cookies or access to information on your terminal device. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected. 

We have no influence on the storage period of the data stored by the service providers for their own purposes.
