However, no personal data will be forwarded to Google. Although adding additional features to Google Analytics with Universal Analytics, this does not mean that there is a limitation of data protection measures such as IP masking or the browser add-on.

Newsletter

With the following information, we will inform you about the contents of our newsletter as well as the registration, shipping and statistical evaluation procedures as well as your right of objection. By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to the receipt and the procedures described.

Content of the newsletter: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with advertising information (hereinafter "newsletter") only with the consent of the recipient or a legal permission. Insofar as the content of a newsletter is concretely described in the context of an application for the newsletter, it is decisive for the consent of the user. Incidentally, our newsletters contain the following information: our products, offers, promotions and our company.

Double opt-in and logging: Registration for our newsletter is done in a so-called double opt-in procedure. That After registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with external e-mail addresses. Registration for the newsletter will be logged in order to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the logon and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. Likewise, changes to your data stored with the shipping service provider will be logged.

Shipping service provider: The newsletter is sent by means of " (hereinafter referred to as "shipping service provider"). You can see the privacy policy of the shipping service provider here:.

The e-mail addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as their other data described in the context of these notes, are stored on the servers of the shipping service provider. The shipping service provider uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. Furthermore, the shipping service provider may, according to its own information, use this data to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. for the technical optimization of shipping and the presentation of newsletters or for economic purposes, to determine from which countries the recipients come. However, the shipping service provider does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to address them themselves or to pass them on to third parties.

Credentials: To subscribe to the newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address.

Statistical Survey and Analysis - The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", i. a pixel-sized file, which is retrieved from the server of the shipping service provider when the newsletter is opened. In the course of this call, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of the retrieval are collected. This information is used to improve the technical performance of services based on their specifications or audience and their reading habits, based on their locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our endeavor nor that of the shipping service provider to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us much more 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.

Termination / Withdrawal - You can terminate the receipt of our newsletter at any time, ie. Revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to its dispatch by the shipping service provider and the statistical analyzes expire.

Integration of services and content of third parties

It may happen that contents or services of third-party providers, such as maps or fonts from other websites, are included in our online offer. The inclusion of content from third-party providers always requires that the third-party providers perceive the IP address of the users, since they could not send the content to the users browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. Furthermore, providers of third-party content can set their own cookies and process users data for their own purposes. In the process, user profiles of the processed data can be created. We will use this content as much as possible in a data-saving and data-avoiding manner and will select reliable third-party providers with regard to data security.

The following presentation provides an overview of third-party providers as well as their contents, as well as links to their data protection statements, which further notes on the processing of data and, currently. already mentioned here, contradictory possibilities (so-called opt-out) contain:

- External fonts from Google, Inc., https://www.google.com/fonts ("Google Fonts"). The integration of Google fonts is done by a server call on Google (usually in the US).
