4.3 Newsletter
With your consent you can subscribe to our newsletter, in which we inform you about our current interesting offers. The advertised products and services are named in the declaration of consent.
Regarding our newsletter we use the so called Double-opt-in-procedure. That is to say, that we send you an E-Mail after your registration, in which we ask for your confirmation that you would like the dispatch of the newsletter. If you don´t confirm your registration our information will be deleted automatically after one month. In addition to this we store the time of the registration and the confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to establish proof of your registration and if necessary to detect a possible misuse of your personal data.
The only mandatory statement for the dispatch of the newsletter is your prename, family name, your E-Mail-Address and the country. After your confirmation we store your E-Mail-Address for the purpose of sending the newsletter. We delete your E-Mail-Address if you unsubscribe to our newsletter or you withdraw your consent to the dispatch of the newsletter.
The legal basis is Article 6 Par.1 S.1 lit. a) GDPR.
You can withdraw your confirmation or subscription to the dispatch of the newsletter any time.

We indicate that we evaluate your user pattern in connection with the dispatch of the newsletter. For this evaluation we use our external newsletter-service Marketo. With the gathered data we create a user profile in order to design the newsletter to your individual interests. With this we record when you read our newsletter, which Links you use and we evaluate through this your personal interests. We don´t combine these data with other handlings you do while using our website.
5. Retargeting/Analysis
On our website we use among other things Google AdWords in order to draw attention to our offers with the help of advertising medium on external websites, as well as Google Analytics in order to analyze the usage of our website and to frequently improve its quality.
Further details to the usage of the services, like for example the legal basis, the storage duration, etc. you gather from the table to No.3.2.
6.Social Plugins
Our website uses so called “Social Plugins” of services of third parties, which run social networks. At present these are the Social-Media-Plugins of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn. We use the so called “Two-Click-Solution”. This means, when you visit our website, no personal data is transferred to the provider of Plugins in general. You recognize the provider of Plugins by the marking on the field above the first letter of the name or the corresponding Logo. We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the provider of Plugins while using the corresponding button. Only if you click on the marked field, and with that activate it, the corresponding provider of Plugins gets the information, that you opened the corresponding website using our online-offer to do so. In case of Facebook according to the information of the providers the IP-Address gets anonymized directly after the gathering.
While activating the Plugins personal data will be transferred to the corresponding provider of the Plugins and will be stored there (in cases of US-Provider in the USA). Since the provider of Plugins uses Cookies for the gathering of data, we recommend to you to delete all Cookies while using the security installations of your browser using the corresponding button there.

The provider of Plugins stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purpose of advertisement, market research and/or adequate design of his website. Such an evaluation (also for not locked-in users) is done particularly for the presentation of advertisement in line with the demand and in order to inform other users of the social network about activities on our website. You have the right of opposition against the building of such user profiles, when you have to address to the corresponding provider of Plugins directly in order to perform your right of opposition.

With the Plugins we offer you the opportunity to interact with the social networks and other users, so that we can improve our supply and can design it more interesting for you as a user.
The legal basis for the usage of Plugins is Article 6 Par.1 S.1 lit. f) GDPR.

The transfer of data takes place irrespective if you have an account at the provider of Plugins or if you are locked-in. If you are locked-in to a provider of Plugins the data gathered by us are allocated directly to your account at the provider of Plugins. If you use the active button e.g. in order to link the corresponding page, the provider of Plugins stores this information in your user account and informs your contacts publicly. We recommend to you, that you lock-out of the social network each time you finish your usage, in particular before you activate the buttons, since you can avoid the allocation of your profile at the provider of Plugins.

Further information about the purpose and the scale of the gathering of data and the processing by the provider of Plugins, is given via the privacy policies of said providers, which are listed in the following. There you get more information regarding your corresponding rights and setting possibilities to protect your private sphere.
